*Travel & Mileage:

Travel within a 10 mile radius of NE24 is included in the price of all services. For additional travel, this is charged at 28p per mile and will be advised in an official quotation upon consultation to reassure that there are no unexpected addition fees.

Deposits & Trials:

Upon enquiry an official quotation will be emailed to you to consider which will be valid for 1 month from the date issued. We aim to respond to all enquiries within 24 hours with no obligation to book, however,please be aware that dates can not be reserved until a deposit has been paid. During the busy summer season weekend weddings do fill up quickly so it is advised to bare this in mind when you receive your quote (as we hate to disappoint!)

Terms and Conditions: All bridal services require a non-refundable deposit to secure the wedding date of 50% of the total cost. Due to popular demand for weekend appointments, during peak season (May to August) trial appointments will only be available on Wednesday evenings or Sunday afternoons and it is recommended to book well in advance to avoid any disappointment. An invoice showing the remaining balance will be issued after your complete satisfaction with the trial and it is politely requested that all balances be settled no later than 14 days prior to the event.

All other services require the payment in full at the point of booking to secure the appointment date.
