-It is your responsibility to obtain any permissions, licences and pay any fees to any venues/locations or entertainers/musicians performing, where capturing material will take place (if applicable).
-Unless you advise us otherwise, we will assume all persons attending the shoot have consented for their inclusion in any material captured.
-We respect the wishes and regulations of anyone officiating at the shoot which may limit where we position cameras and other equipment. There may be other restrictions such as a limit to Gill & Gee's movement around the venue or certain parts of the shoot which we are not allowed to film.
-We make every effort to capture quality material and ensure all Gill & Gee's equipment is of the highest quality and regularly maintained. We employ several back-up strategies for capturing material however, we cannot be held responsible for any lighting, sound or interference issues caused by circumstances outside our control. This includes camera/equipment failure, adverse lighting, noise issues and restrictions imposed by venues.
-We use our professional expertise and discretion to ensure that significant parts of the day are recorded. Unfortunately, we cannot guarantee that we will be able to capture every aspect of the day as it takes place 'live'.
-We make every effort to arrive at locations on time but we cannot be held responsible for lateness or non-attendance caused by circumstances outside our control such as traffic delays, severe weather conditions, unforeseen illness/incapacity, accident, technical, camera or equipment failure. In such circumstances we will contact you as soon as possible to discuss alternative arrangements.
-We aim to be as discreet as possible during the day and work alongside other professionals. We follow the events of the day as they happen and therefore, are not in control of the setting. This may lead to some material being in high shadow/contrast or partial/temporary obstruction of subjects being filmed/photographed or issues of low/mumbled/no sound. We may be unable to capture material if other official professionals are not willing to allow us to capture material when they are working.
-We do not usually capture material during the wedding breakfast and whilst we will not join the reception guests we would ask that refreshments are provided for Gill & Gee during this time. In this way we can remain on site.
-Whilst we aim to capture as much material as possible during the day, we cannot guarantee a minimum amount of material that will be taken on the day. This is due to the ‘live-event’ nature of the day and the unique structure of each individual shoot.

-You must notify us in writing (email or letter) within 7 days of receipt of the final DVD/BluRay/USB of any faults or playback issues and we will make every reasonable attempt to resolve them. Should we not hear from you within 7 days we will assume you are happy with the DVD/BluRay/USB.
