A deposit of 50% is payable to confirm your booking. This deposit will be used for part payment of your final account. In the event that a function is cancelled the deposit is non-refundable no matter the time period before the date of the function.

If a date is provisionally booked, we will only keep the date for 14 days. To confirm the date, the deposit must be paid within those 14 days. If the deposit is not paid before the end of the period, we will cancel the booking and the date will be given to the next client.
