2.0 TERM.

Client and GD Photo Booths agree that this Contract between the Parties is for Services that shall commence on the above date and complete on the event date. The Contract may be extended and/or renewed by agreement of all the Parties in writing thereafter.


Client agrees to pay GD Photo Booths, in consideration of the Services contracted for, the sum of included within the above confirmation, with a non-refundable retainer fee, and the remaining balance shall be paid in full on or before the event, plus all applicable taxes. Payment shall be made to GD Photo Booths. If Client are booking Client’s event within 7 days of the event date, full payment will be due at the time of booking and is non-refundable except under the circumstances set forth below in the Cancelations section.

GD Photo Booths. reserves the equipment, time and date for Client’s event once Client accepts this Agreement and pays the initial retainer. Any Services requested that exceed the contracted time period and which are granted by GD Photo Booths will be charged at the going rate per hour.

3.1 Service Fee Summary. The Service Fee shall be found in the above confirmation. The Service Fee encompasses only those items included in the Description of Services section above. Payments are not transferable, not assignable, nor refundable except as explicitly described in this contract. Once the Agreement has been agreed to, no reduction in services are allowed unless otherwise permitted by GD Photo Booths at their discretion. Any added services, confirmed in writing (email suffices) after the Agreement has been accepted do not require an additional contract, but will be charged for accordingly.

3.2 Returned Cheques & Defaulted Accounts. Returned cheques shall be subject to a fifty-pound (£50.00) fee, and all subsequent payments shall be made via cashier’s check/money order. The Client shall be responsible for any attorneys’ fees, court costs, or other costs incurred in the collection of delinquent accounts. In the event that Client fails to remit any payments as specified, Company shall be entitled to terminate this Agreement immediately, retain the non-refundable deposit fee, and shall have no obligation to render Client Services for Client’s Event.

3.3 Initial Payment/Retainer, Fees and Cancellation Charges. An initial retainer payment of £50 is required to secure Client’s booking unless otherwise agreed upon or indicated during a special. The initial retainer fee may be paid automatically through our online booking system, by bank transfer, or PayPal if agreed upon by Company. The retainer Client pays to secure Client’s event is non-refundable in exchange for consideration of the work we put into events prior to attending, and the bookings we will have missed by securing Client’s date.

3.4 Regional Travel Fee. If the event location is within 20 miles of GD Photo Booths' base, there is no travel fee. If the event location is greater than 20 miles from GD Photo Booths’ offices, Client will pay a travel fee equal to £0.50 per mile, round trip, past the 20-mile radius of GD Photo Booths' offices in West Lothian, Scotland.

3.5 Long Distance Travel & Parking.

Once a mutually beneficial date is agreed upon, the contract will be updated to reflect the new date and all received funds will be applied to the rescheduled event.

If Client changes the date of the event, Client will immediately notify GD Photo Booths. in writing (email suffices). GD Photo Booths will make best efforts to accommodate Client and provide its services on the changed date. If GD Photo Booths is not available on the new event date, GD Photo Booths shall be entitled to keep the retainer and neither party shall have any further liability or obligation under this Agreement. If Client reschedules the event and the new event date is more than six months in the future, the Service Fee will be adjusted to reflect changes in pricing, if any. If the new date chosen by client is unavailable, the booking will be treated as a cancellation and follow the cancellation policy timeline.


All cancellations must be made by contacting GD Photo Booths and must be in writing. Once Client’s event has been cancelled, Client’s event date will immediately be available for other bookings. Should the Client cancel and there are no legally binding reasons to restrict the event from taking place, all monies received will remain on file as a credit for 1 year. (Situations not recognised as legally binding reasons include, but are not limited to, mandatory mask orders, mandatory social distancing orders or reduced attendance orders.) In addition, Client will owe any outstanding payments under the following schedule:

Cancellation 90 days or more before the event - No refund of the initial retainer/deposit. Any other amounts paid and/or other monies paid excluding transaction fees are refundable unless a special order item has been ordered.

Cancellation between 89 - 15 days of the event - No refund of any monies paid up to 50% of the total. Anything beyond 50% of total booking fee will be refunded. 50% of the package is still due if not already paid.

Cancellation within 14 days of the event - There is no refund available and the entire amount of the booking price is due. The single exception to the “14 days” policy is for death or Military Deployment with verifiable death certificate or deployment papers. If a death or military situation is activated, all but the retainer and transaction fees will be refunded. In the case of Military Deployment the total can be placed against another date, as long as the date is available. The above exception is only valid for deaths or deployments of the organiser of the event, or the person or persons that the event is being held for.


Please contact us if you will not be able to make payment and we will try to come up with a solution. In the event that payments are not received by GD Photo Booths within 5 calendar days after becoming due, Company may, unless otherwise agreed upon:

Charge a late fee in the amount of £100;

Charge a late fee in the amount of £250 if such payment is more than 14 calendar days late

Begin court proceedings after 30 calendar days late, with an additional fee of £500 + all legal expenses


7.1 Set-up of Services. The hire period will be for a set period, as specified as agreed by both parties. Use will commence at the agreed time and finish at the agreed time in the booking form unless due to technical difficulties on our behalf, when we provide the service for the set period once rectified. Company will arrive to set up approximately 40-90 minutes before the hire period is due to commence unless otherwise stated and agreed upon. If Client requires any manned service to be set up earlier an idle time charge will apply. 1 idle hour is provided for free, any additional hours is charged at £25 per hour, per staff member. It is the Client's responsibility to ensure that the venue allows the Company in their venue to perform services and at the agreed time. This also includes ensuring that there is access to enter the venue and enough space with a power socket. If there is insufficient space for us to set up we will attempt to setup in a manner that may reduce the overall size of the service, if this is still not possible, or Client does not want the smaller-sized service, Client will still be charged the full hire amount. Our photo booths require a space of 2.5m height x 2.5m width x 2.5m length minimum. Please contact us for sizes of any other products/services.

It is Client’s responsibility to inform us of any circumstances that may make setting up take longer, these may include but are not exhaustive to; going upstairs, a long distance from unloading area to set-up area, restricted access. If we are not aware of these and the set-up takes longer than normal Client’s hire period may be intruded into.

If Client's event starts late or runs late, our period of hire will still be for the previously agreed period and times unless we agree to provide additional hours as per our additions.

7.2 Downtime. GD Photo Booths takes the utmost care regarding equipment function. However, due to the nature of technology, some downtime may occur. GD Photo Booths guarantees its equipment to be operational at least 80% of the scheduled rental time, and will refund a prorated amount of the rental price for any downtime beyond this caused by equipment malfunction. This is not to include equipment malfunction resulting from abuse of equipment by guests. We will add extra time onto the end of the hire to makeup for the downtime if possible with both your and our schedules.

7.3 Termination of Hire for Damages. GD Photo Booths retains the right to terminate a hire if they feel that any equipment or property belonging to GD Photo Booths is in danger of being damaged or has been damaged due to unruly behaviour from Client. We also reserve the right to refuse guests to participate in the activities if we feel they are too unruly.

In any instances where Company may have a need to terminate the hire, Company will attempt to speak with the Client or the hosting venue first if possible to try to resolve the matter before termination. Client will be fully responsible for any damages caused by Client or any other attendees at the event to any equipment however caused, with the sole exclusion of GD Photo Booths staff.

If, for whatever reason including injury, illness, acts of God, GD Photo Booths' attendants or specialised staff are unable to attend the event, GD Photo Booths will make best efforts to find a substitute attendant or company for the event. If a substitute attendant or company cannot be found, GD Photo Booths will promptly reimburse Client any and all Service Fee and deposit amounts Client previously paid to GD Photo Booths, and neither party will have any further obligations or additional liability under this Agreement

Company shall have no obligation to perform under this Agreement and no liability for delays or failures to perform due to a Force Majeure Event, but Company may, in Company’s discretion, work with the Client to find an alternative date for the Event that is suitable to both Client and Company. To the extent the Parties cannot agree on a suitable replacement date consistent with Company’s availability, Company may also, in its sole discretion, refund fees paid under the Agreement, less any amounts necessary to cover expenses and work (based on time spent by Company) already performed by Company related to the Event, including, but not limited to, pre-wedding communications, development of timelines, and preparation of gear for the Event (the “Refund Amount”). In the case of a Force Majeure Event, Company shall have no additional liability to Client with respect to this Agreement beyond that described in this Section and below.
