The overall prize is made up of a number of prizes consisting of a variety of products and/or services provided by a range of suppliers and these products and services are specific to those suppliers rather than generic. For example, a part of the overall prize may be the provision of flowers by Sample Florist Ltd specifically, rather than the provision of flowers in general from a florist of the Winner’s choice.
All prizes are subject to availability and the prize suppliers’ terms and conditions which it is your responsibility to check.
Any particular prize is subject to an available date being agreed between the Winner and the supplier of any prize and Neil Ridley Photography accepts no responsibility or liability in the event of a date not being agreed between the Winner and any supplier.
All products and services provided as prizes under the competition will only apply to bona fide weddings arranged and taking place within the 18 months following the drawing of the prize. Should the products and services forming the overall prize not be planned and booked within 6 months of the draw and/or the wedding to which the prizes relate not happen within 18 months of the draw, Neil Ridley Photography reserves the right to withdraw all or part of the prizes and re-draw.
Some prizes will be subject to availability and certain dates may be excluded when the Winner may not take up the prize. All elements relating to such prizes must be taken up during one period, and not on non-consecutive dates. The Winner (and his or her partner if applicable) will be required to hold a valid passport and/or other necessary travel documentation, authorization and visas. Where a prize relates to travel for more than one person, the Winner and his or her partner must travel together, departing from and returning to the same location at the same time and on the same itinerary. The prize provider and/or their agents cannot guarantee that seats will be adjacent to each other.
The products and services forming the prize have been agreed in good faith by Neil Ridley Photography with the suppliers of the prizes. Neil Ridley Photography accepts no liability or responsibility for the provision of or failure to provide products and/or services from a supplier.
The Winner must organise with the supplier all aspects of the provision of the prize and pay any aspects of the wedding not specifically stated as part of the prize.
The Winner is responsible for expenses and arrangements not specifically included in the prizes, including any necessary travel documents, passports and visas.
Winner agrees to address any claims in respect of any prize direct with the relevant prize supplier.
The prizes apply only to the Winner or his/her partner and are not transferable to any third party.
No cash alternative will be provided. However, prizes may be substituted for a suitable alternative at Neil Ridley Photography’s website at the prize provider’s discretion.
With the possible exception of foreign honeymoons, products and/or services forming the prize will be delivered in the UK only.
The prize excludes any arrangements or costs for civil, religious or other ceremonies themselves and these should be arranged and paid for directly by the Winner. The Winner (and where applicable, his or her partner) may be required to provide their signature as proof of their agreement to relevant waivers, releases and/or consents when taking up a prize. Failure to sign any relevant documentation may result in forfeiture of the prize without further liability to that entrant.
