“We” are: Amy Ford trading as Attabara Studio of 12 Scotts Way, Sunbury on Thames, TW16 7JQ (“The Planner”)
“You” are: The customer or customers that received the proposal (where more than one person, they shall be jointly and severally liable) ("The Client")
The Client is engaging the services of Attabara Studio and Attabara Studio accepts the booking. The booking is subject to the Terms & Conditions below, the contents of the invoice and booking agreement, to form this contract.
In this agreement:
“The Assignment” means the project of work, Goods and Services set out in the proposal.
“The Event” means the Event to be delivered by The Planner under the Assignment.
2. PRICE, PAYMENT & EXPENSES
The Price for the Assignment is set out in the attached proposal. There is no VAT. The Price includes all advance planning, preparations and delivery of Services at the Event, as detailed in the attached proposal. The Price is paid as set out in this clause (“the Payments”) and excludes any expenses that will be incurred by The Planner which will be notified to The Client separately and agreed in writing. Expenses will be separately invoiced monthly.
FOR FEES BASED ON A % OF WEDDING BUDGET (full planning)
A budget for the Assignment has been agreed between The Client and The Planner and the Price shall be a percentage of the budget. As the Assignment progresses, the budget may increase or decrease, and the Price shall fluctuate accordingly. Staged Payments will be due as set out below based on the budget, and after the Event a final balancing Payment will be made in accordance with Clause 2.10.
A Booking Fee (“the Booking Fee”) of 40% of the Price shall be paid upon entering this agreement and The Planner’s invoice for the Deposit will follow – please refer carefully to Clause 3.
A second Payment of 40% of the Price shall be paid no less than 6 months before the Event.
The third Payment of 15% of the Price shall be paid 1 month before the Event.
The final Payment of the balance shall be paid within 14 days after the Event, once the final budget for the Assignment has been calculated by The Planner.
If at any time during the Assignment, the budget decreases to the level that means the % Price agreed under paragraph 2.6. falls below The Planner’s minimum price, then the Price shall be deemed to be fixed from that point as that minimum price and Clauses 2.2. – 2.5. shall apply.
The Price (the Payments and Deposit as set out above) and any expenses, shall be Fees of The Planner.
If Due to location & timing The Planner’s attendance at your event or site visit requires overnight accommodation for the Planner & Team, this will be invoiced as in Clause 2.1, unless provided by the bridal party (please be assured this will be simple accommodation ie. Premier Inn and agreed in writing with The Client before booking.)
Payment for all suppliers must be made by The Client directly unless otherwise agreed in writing. Attabara Studio must receive exact payments cleared in the bank account before purchasing on behalf of the client.
UK travel outside of a 40 mile radius for site visits, client meetings and the event will incur a surcharge to cover mileage (at £0.45p/m) or train fares where required. Travel & accommodation for destination site visits, client meetings and the event will all be chargeable. We will always outline an estimate for this in advance of you confirming your booking with us.
Staffing for your event will be outlined and agreed within your proposal. Any additional staffing required will be charged and invoiced separately at a rate of £200.00 - £250.00 pp / per day.
A hot meal must be provided for all members of the Attabara team on the wedding day
