Book with confidence – money back guarantee


Are you ready to book your wedding photographer, but worried about losing your deposit if you pay it now?

Despite the current global crisis, many couples still need to plan weddings for later this year, 2021 and 2022.

Unfortunately, many 2020 weddings are having to re-arrange, so 2021 is going to a very busy year with popular wedding suppliers likely to have very limited availability.

You may be finding a little extra time to do your research for suppliers now if you are self-isolating or working from home, but perhaps reluctant to pay out money on deposits/booking fees for the risk of losing money. Let me help!

To ensure we are going to have a great day, I normally like to have a face to face meeting before a couple commit to booking me as their wedding photographer, but due to the Corona virus pandemic the studio is obviously closed. Nobody can predict how long it will be before businesses will reopen, but plans still need to be made for events next year, and further in the future.

Many insurers are reluctant to provide new cover at the moment, so I would like to offer reassurance to any wedding couples who want to get their date secured in our diary now. I fully understand couples having reservations about making a booking without meeting face to face, or not browsing and handling wedding albums to see and feel the quality, but I am confident you will not be disappointed.

For a *limited time, and for new bookings received on or after April 1st, I guarantee to return your £250 booking fee in full should you need to cancel or postpone your wedding not less than 4 months before the wedding, no matter what your reason.

*This offer is valid while the studio is closed on Government advice during the Corona virus pandemic. I reserve the right to withdraw this offer at any time without notice, but the return of the booking fee received between April 1st 2020 and the time the offer is closed, will be guaranteed fully refundable.

To date, all Christopher Hill Photography (CHP) wedding bookings that have arranged a new date after being forced to cancel/postpone due to the covid-19 pandemic have simply had their booking transferred to their new date with relative ease, and no rearrangement fees. I have kept in touch with couples to help them get through what is already a stressful time, some having to cancel their big day with as little as one week’s notice.

Please call me on 07889 669849 anytime to chat about your plans, or just to ask a question or two.
