TRAVEL: Any travel more than 15 miles from Portchester is subject to a travel charge, which will be confirmed by the Celebrant at the time of booking.
INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY: The written ceremony as prepared by the Celebrant will remain their intellectual property and at no time is the Client permitted to duplicate, copy, share, sell or reproduce any content. This includes any other celebrant without permission.
LIMITATION OF LIABILITY: Clients agree to the fullest extent permitted by law that the Celebrant shall not be liable for any claims for emotional distress, mental anguish, consequential damages, lost profit, loss of employment, lost revenues, replacement costs, compensatory damages and/or punitive damages whether or not foreseeable and/or arriving from any negligent act or omission on the part of any person. The Celebrant liability for any claim, breach or damage by reason of any act or omission shall be limited to repayment of sums paid by Clients only.
CANCELLATION & REFUNDS: Cancellations must be communicated in writing. If written notice of cancellation of services is received seven days prior to the Funeral Service all fees other than the deposit will be refunded. If a written notice of cancellation of services is received less than seven days prior to the Funeral Service the Client shall be responsible for full payment of services.
UNFORESEEN CIRCUMSTANCES: In the unlikely event that the Celebrant is unable to perform the ceremony for unforeseen circumstances (i.e. illness, vehicle accident, and/or transportation breakdown, etc.) the Celebrant shall be allowed to make reasonable attempts to provide a replacement Celebrant at no additional cost to the Client. In the event that the Celebrant must cancel this Agreement for Services, the Client shall be refunded the full fees paid for Services.
EULOGY AND SERVICE CONTENT: The Celebrant will do their best to provide accurate content. If the eulogy is written by the Celebrant on your behalf, you will receive one draft copy to check and return immediately. The Celebrant will then endeavour to include your amendments in the final Ceremony Script. The Celebrant is not liable for any inaccurate or misleading information contained in the Eulogy. Nor can the Celebrant guarantee that every reading, poem or prayer chosen will be included in the Ceremony. This may be due to time constraints imposed by the crematorium or other external factors outside the Celebrant’s control.
MUSIC/PROPS: If the Funeral Service includes photographs, music, a candle, additional tribute flowers and or any other special features the Client is responsible for providing all equipment required and making sure it is in working order.
IMAGE RELEASE: Should the Client not agree that the Celebrant may use any images and stories from the Funeral Service for any means of promotion, including advertising and display on website, blogs or social media notice must be given in writing. Clients waive any right to payment, royalties or any other consideration for the use of images or stories.
The Celebrant reserves the right to change these Terms and Conditions without notice. The Terms and Conditions as published on this website will always be the latest version and will override any prior Terms and Conditions provided in any other form.
