4.YOUR RIGHTS TO MAKE CHANGES
4.1 If you wish to make a change to the Event Proposal or any element of the Event please contact us. We will let you know if the change is possible. If it is possible we will let you know about any changes to the price of the event or anything else which would be necessary as a result of your requested change and ask you to confirm whether you wish to go ahead with the change. If we cannot make the change or the consequences of making the change are unacceptable to you, you may want to end the contract (see clause 7- Your rights to end the contract).
4.2 You will have provided us with a guaranteed number of people attending your Event in the Event Proposal. You may decrease the number of people attending your Event but we are not able to reduce the price for the Event. It is possible to increase the number of people attending but this will be subject to additional costs (see clause 14.1).
4.3 If you make last minute changes, for example by changing the time of a wedding ceremony, we will not be liable to you for any delays which are experienced during the Event.
5.OUR RIGHTS TO MAKE CHANGES
5.1 Minor changes to the event. We may change any aspect of the Event:
to reflect changes in relevant laws and regulatory requirements;
to implement technical adjustments; and
to implement any requirements or obligations stipulated by the venue,
These changes will be notified to you as soon as reasonably possible prior to the Event.
5.2 More significant changes to the event and these terms. We may be required to make significant changes to the Event as a result of instructions from the venue, for example. We will notify you of such change and if it is deemed to affect any aspect of the event substantially and is not considered, in our reasonable opinion, to be a minor change, you may then contact us to end the contract before the changes take effect and receive a refund for any money paid for services not received. We will do everything we can to make alternative arrangements but if these arrangements are not acceptable to you, you may still cancel the contract.
6.PROVIDING THE SERVICES AND EVENT
6.1 When we will provide the services. We will supply those event planning services described in the Event Proposal after the contract has formed up to the Event date, as detailed in the Event Proposal and we will run and manage the Event on the Event date itself, unless you end the contract as described in clause 8 or we end the contract by written notice to you as described in clause 10. Unless requested by you in writing, we will not start supplying any services until the “Cooling Off Period” has expired (see clause 7.3). For example; this means we will not secure the venue with payment of a deposit unless you specifically request us to.
6.2 We are not responsible for events outside our control. If our performance of the Event services or the Event itself is affected by an event outside our control then we will contact you as soon as possible to let you know and we will take steps to minimise the effect of the event by endeavouring to make alternative arrangements, for example. Provided we do this we will not be liable for any delay or impact on the Event caused by an event outside of our control, but if there is a risk of substantial delay or the event outside of our control substantially affects the Event, you may contact us to end the contract and receive a refund in accordance with clause 7.2.
6.3 We are not responsible for events which do not directly affect the nature or performance of the Event. If you consider that the Event is impacted by a matter which does not directly affect the Event or occur outside the vicinity of the venue, for example, there are road works on the road leading to the venue, or there is another event being held at the venue, we will not be liable to you if you consider such matter to have affected your Event.
6.4 What will happen if you do not give required information to us? We will need certain information from you so that we can organise the Event for you, for example, food and decoration choices. We will contact you to ask for this information as and when it is required. If you do not give us this information within a reasonable time of us asking for it, or if you give us incomplete or incorrect information, we may either end the contract (and clause 9.2 will apply) or make an additional charge of a reasonable sum to compensate us for any extra work that is required as a result. We will not be responsible for not supplying any part of the planned Event if this is caused by you not giving us the information we need within a reasonable time of us asking for it.
6.5 We may suspend the services or cancel the Event if you do not pay. If you do not pay an instalment for the Event when you are supposed to (see clause 11.4) and you still do not make payment within  days of us reminding you that payment is due, we may suspend supply of the Event services until you have paid us the outstanding amounts, or if any sums are outstanding  days before the date of the Event, we may cancel the Event. We will contact you to tell you we are suspending supply of the services or cancelling the Event. As well as suspending supply of the Event services we can also charge you interest on your overdue payments (see clause 11.5).
7.YOUR RIGHTS TO END THE CONTRACT
7.1 You can always end your contract with us. Your rights when you end the contract will depend on how we are performing and when you decide to end the contract:
If you want to end the contract because of something we have done or have told you we are going to do, see clause 7.2;
If you have just changed your mind about the Event, see clause 7.3. You may be able to get a refund if you are within the Cooling Off Period, but this may be subject to deductions;
In all other cases (if we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind), see clause 7.6.

If you are ending a contract for a reason set out at (a) to (e) below the contract will end immediately and we will refund you in full for any element of the Event services which have not been provided. If we have paid monies to a third party, we will only be able to refund you to the extent that those monies are refundable. The reasons are:
we have told you about an upcoming change to the product or these terms which you do not agree to (see clause 5.2);
we have told you about an error in the price or description of the services and Event and you do not wish to proceed;
there is a risk that Event may be significantly delayed because of events outside our control; or
you have a legal right to end the contract because of something we have done wrong.

This is known as a “Cooling Off Period”. If you cancel the contract within the Cooling Off Period and we have not commenced work on your Event, you will be reimbursed all money paid using the same method which the payment was made to us within 14 days of us receiving your notice of cancellation.
We will not commence work on the Event during the Cooling Off Period unless you expressly request that we do so either by signing the waiver in the Event Proposal or in writing, However, if you cancel the contract, you will need to pay us for those Event services performed in the organisation of your Event, any non-refundable payments made to third parties prior to you cancelling the contract and any payments which we are liable to pay to third parties. We may deduct this sum for money already paid to us by you and charge you for any additional sums required.
When you don’t have the right to change your mind. You do not have a right to change your mind;
(a) once the Event has been completed, even if the cancellation period is still running;
(b) after the Cooling Off Period has expired (see clause 7.3).
Ending the contract where we are not at fault and there is no right to change your mind. Even if we are not at fault and you do not have a right to change your mind (see clause 7.1), you can still end the contract before it is completed, but you may have to pay us compensation. The contract is completed when the Event has ended and we have completed any post Event services detailed in the Event Proposal. If you want to end the contract before it is completed where we are not at fault and you have not changed your mind, just contact us to let us know. The contract will end immediately and we will refund any sums paid by you for services not provided but we may deduct from that refund (or, if the charges exceed your advance payments, charge you) a percentage of the price of the Event as calculated in the cancellation policy detailed in the Event Proposal. This will include any payments either made to third parties and which we are unable to recover or payment which we are liable to pay to third parties.

If you or your guest continues to behave in a loud or disorderly manner, we may, at our discretion, ask you or your guests to leave the venue without liability to you. Depending on the extent of the disorderly behaviour and the number of people behaving inappropriately, we may, at our option, terminate the Event without liability to you.
14.5 You are liable for damage caused by you or your guests. You are liable to us and the venue for any damage caused to the venue, furnishings, decorations, crockery, cutlery, glasses or any other equipment or product used in the Event whether this is caused by you, your guests, sub-contractors or any other representative.

You will ensure that your third party service provider has appropriate insurance to carry out the services and that you obtain an indemnity for them for any loss or damage caused as a result of their acts or omissions.
