Following is a real – life experience of a couple to illustrate the booking process.
Emma had found us over the internet and made the first contact. She had visited our website as well as our facebook page at www.facebook.com/uzmasbridal to see examples of our work and likes and comments received from other people. She had initially contacted us for her “Wedding / Bridal Makeup”. The initial consultation was held over the phone and arrangements were made to meet in-person so that we could show her and her fiancée examples of our work. Emma and Dave came to our office to see pictures of some real brides as well as to see examples of our Wedding Photography and Wedding Videography. Since our Bridal Makeup, Wedding photography and Wedding videography package prices are listed on the website it was very easy for them to determine the sort of services they would like to book us for.
During our meeting we showed both Emma and Dave examples of our work including photo albums and DVD’s of some real Wedding Videography and Wedding Photography coverage’s we had done. They also saw some albums of Photoshoots we had done in our studio and they were very impressed (Studio Photoshoots only available in Manchester for the time being). They wanted to book us for all 3 services we provide Wedding / Bridal Makeup and Hair Styling, Wedding Photography and Wedding Videography.
Securing the booking
In order to secure the booking Emma and Dave made a direct payment of 50% of the total amount into our bank account (as we do not accept cash-in-hand). Once we had confirmation that the payment was made an invoice (and a copy for the couple) was generated. This invoice (and the duplicate) was on our company letterhead and detailed all the services that were going to be provided and on the day these services were to be provided. The clients signed both the invoices and returned a signed copy back to us. By signing the invoice they had also confirmed that they had read our terms and conditions that are listed on our website and were in agreement with those terms and conditions.
Before the Wedding
Well before the wedding day – Emma and Dave emailed us the itinerary. They also made the payment of the balance of the 50% of the invoice and we sent them a text confirmation that the full payment had now been received.
On the day of the wedding since we were doing Emma’s Bridal Makeup and hair styling and the wedding photography and wedding videography coverage was to begin from her home. Our teams arrived on time and started doing their work. Since we had cushion time built-in, our teams were able to get all their work done very easily and without the need to dip into the cushion time. Our teams were able to coordinate very well amongst themselves. Some video and photographs were taken of the bride getting ready. We also got a chance to get some messages from the family of the bride for the video. The photographer and the videographer then took some shots of the Bride leaving for the registrars’s office to get married.
At the Registrar’s office – “running” shots and video was captured of the function. All the captures and shots were “natural” and taken as the ceremony progressed. After the register was signed by the bride and groom and once the couple was officially wed – our photographer and videographer requested them for some time alone to get a photoshoot done. We managed to get great clicks at the very beautiful town hall and on the grounds as well. Most of the video and photography was “natural” – however, for group settings and for the couple photoshoot our team gave direction.
The wedding party then made their way to a local hotel’s bar for a get-together. The bride and groom were greeted by the guests and drinks were served. During this time our videographer was able to record messages from guests who had attended the wedding. The photographer also managed to get great shots of guests and family.
After a short break during which the bride got a new makeover and hairstyle done everyone made their way to the marquee that was chosen for the wedding reception. At the reception, the photographer and videographer again got a chance to capture the essence of the occasion and were able to capture a lot of great pictures and video. Our teams covered the cake-cutting ceremony, speeches of the family/guests/bestman/and parents and stayed back to cover the 1st dance of the new bride and groom.
After the wedding
Right after the wedding reception we received a text from Emma who was really happy and commended us and our team for a job very well done! Such feedback always gives us encouragement and gives us added motivation to make our client’s wedding day special.
1 week after the wedding
Within 1 week of the wedding the Emma and Dave were given all the raw images on a DVD which was sent to them via first class Royal Mail. A copy of the same images was kept by us. The clients then made their selection of the pictures they wanted in their wedding album.
Video 1st edit and photo album layout
Within the time specified in the terms and conditions, the clients were given the 1st edit of the wedding video as well as the layout of the photo album. On getting the okay from the client for the photo album – it was sent off for printing. For the video the clients made some changes which were made and the final copies of the Wedding Video were given to the client. Yet again we received great feedback from the clients which gives us all encouragement to make YOUR wedding day very special.
