If Amaranthyne Weddings are in attendance on your wedding day, the client agrees that a hot meal will be provided for Amaranthyne Weddings, whenever is convenient for the venue / caterer during the Wedding Breakfast (this can just be a main course). The client also agrees that soft drinks can be provided for Amaranthyne Weddings during the course of the day.
Any changes to the agreement and additional planning services may be booked independently but must be done so in writing, these will be added on to the final balance.
The client agrees to pay all suppliers on time according to their payment schedule. Amaranthyne Weddings are not liable for any suppliers who cancel their agreement because the client has not made payments in time. All fees due are paid direct to each supplier by the client.
Service and Responsibility
The client should make their own decisions based on the evidence and options presented to them. Amaranthyne Weddings are not liable for consequential loss. No compensation will be given to the client after the event if dissatisfaction is not made known to Amaranthyne Weddings straightaway and in reasonable time for a resolution to be made.
The client has the responsibility as a client of Amaranthyne Weddings to provide contact names, telephone numbers and any scheduled timetables for all service providers that they have not been contracted to source no later than 14 days prior to the wedding or upon signing of the letter of agreement.
The client has the responsibility to notify Amaranthyne Weddings of any changes made by the client, in a timely manner and shall not hold them liable for any changes.
Amaranthyne Weddings will be entitled to use their professional judgement when taking action to solve problems unless the client expresses otherwise in writing.

Duration and Termination
The agreement comes into force on the day the agreement is signed. It terminates automatically one day after the wedding or when the services are complete, whichever comes first. The agreement can be cancelled by the client at any time however in case of early termination the client agrees to pay the following cancellation fees: –
- 13 calendar months and over to the wedding – loss of the deposit

- 6-9 calendar months to the wedding – loss of the deposit plus 50% cancellation fee
- 3-6 calendar months to the wedding – loss of the deposit plus 75% cancellation fee
- 0-3 calendar months to the wedding – loss of the deposit plus 100% cancellation fee
The above payment terms are only applicable on the Wedding Day Management, Wedding Weekend, Partial Support, Total Support and Across the Miles options as the other services are paid for up front and are therefore not possible to terminate. The above payment terms are also applicable for Hired Items.
The client agrees that any outstanding fees payable will be paid within 14 days. Any money owed by Amaranthyne Weddings to the client after cancellation will be returned within 14 days in the same manner it was paid. The client agrees to cancel all bookings with third party suppliers.

The latter is also at the agreement of the photographer, so that there is no violation of copyright.
