  5. Waiver of Cooling-Off Period
    By confirming your booking for the Photo Shoot, you explicitly agree to waive your right to the 14-day cooling-off period under consumer protection law. You acknowledge and accept that, due to the commencement of personalised services—including the allocation of studio resources specifically for your Photo Shoot—your right to cancel this contract without charge is waived from the moment your booking is confirmed.
You understand and agree to the following terms:
  1. Non-Refundable Deposit: The shoot deposit is non-refundable, as explained during the booking process.
  2. Liability for Services Rendered: You are liable for payment for any services provided up to the point of cancellation.
  3. Commencement of Services: This agreement allows Body and Soul Studios Ltd. to commence preparations and allocate resources upon your booking confirmation, ensuring that we can deliver a personalised and high-quality photo shoot experience.

By proceeding with the booking, you confirm that you understand and agree to these terms, which are necessary for Body and Soul Studios Ltd. to proceed with your booking.

  1. Client Responsibilities
    1. The Client agrees to arrive on time and be fully prepared for the Photo Shoot as discussed in prior communications. In the event of a late arrival, the session time will not be extended, and the session will end at the scheduled time. If the Client fails to show up, the session fee will not be refunded, and a new booking will be required.

  2. Cancellation, and rescheduling policy

    1. Acknowledgment of Bespoke Service: By booking a Photo Shoot with Body and Soul Studios Ltd., you acknowledge that the service is highly personalised, involving significant preparation that is unique to your scheduled session. This includes, but is not limited to, sending a personalised gift, customising your experience through a styling call, and reserving exclusive studio time, which prevents other bookings.
    2. Waiver of Cooling-Off Period: Given the custom preparations that commence immediately upon booking, you agree to waive the standard 14-day cooling-off period provided under consumer protection laws. This waiver allows us to allocate resources, send out personalised materials, and ensure studio availability for your session, making the shoot deposit non-refundable.
    3. Cancellation by the Client:  Due to the personalised nature of each Photo Shoot, once you have waived the cooling-off period and confirmed your booking, the shoot deposit becomes non-refundable. If you need to cancel the Photo Shoot for any reason after this point, please be aware that refunds cannot be issued for the deposit or any other pre-incurred costs related to the preparations for your session. Additionally, a cancellation fee of £100 will be charged to cover administrative costs and lost booking potential. This fee is due upon cancellation and is separate from any non-refundable deposit or pre-incurred costs.
    4. Provider Cancellation: Should Body and Soul Studios Ltd. need to cancel your Photo Shoot for any reason, we will offer an alternative date for the session. If no suitable date can be found, a full refund of any payments made, including the shoot deposit, will be provided.
    5. Termination Due to Extenuating Circumstances: If unforeseen circumstances necessitate the termination of the Photo Shoot on the scheduled date (e.g., inappropriate behaviour, illness), Body and Soul Studios Ltd. reserves the right to withhold refunds for the deposit and any preparatory costs incurred.


  1. Client-Initiated Rescheduling: We understand that unexpected situations can arise, necessitating a change in your Photo Shoot Date. If you find yourself in such a situation, we kindly request that you inform us at the earliest opportunity. While we commit to accommodating your new preferred date to the best of our ability, we cannot guarantee the availability of all dates. To facilitate this flexibility, a rescheduling fee of £100 will be applied to cover the administrative and preparation costs incurred.
  2. Provider-Initiated Rescheduling: On rare occasions, external factors beyond our control, such as adverse weather conditions or other unforeseen events, may require us to reschedule your Photo Shoot Date. Should this occur, we will promptly notify you to discuss and agree on a new suitable date. Our priority is to find a rescheduled date that aligns with your availability while maintaining the quality of service you expect from us.
  3. Restrictions on Rescheduled Dates: Once a Photo Shoot Date has been rescheduled, the new date is final and cannot be subject to further cancellation by the client. This policy ensures that we can manage our schedule and resources effectively, providing the best service to all our clients.

We appreciate your understanding and cooperation with our rescheduling policy, designed to offer flexibility while ensuring that we can continue to deliver high-quality, personalised photo shoots to all our clients.
