we reserve the right to dispose of the digital master copy after the client has received a copy of the photo / video(s).
It is the client responsibility to make copies of the media we send to them, as we will look to dispose of the media 6-12 months after the event takes place. After this period, it is the clients responsibility to contact us in writing, via email , to archive the data for an additional time period.

Any Raw data we capture from the event cannot be given to the client. Only under extreme circumstances, can raw data be given out (i.e the client wishes to generate their own editing and waiving the editing service under AmarGMedia.

If you ask us to provide any extra services after you have agreed and deposited for a Booking, these may be subject to additional payments which we will agree with you. Those extra services will, if accepted by us, be carried out on the basis of these terms and conditions
Please note that it is your responsibility to obtain the consent from the owners of the venue where the event is being held and all other persons involved in the event, such as any person conducting the ceremony, or musicians to record the event before it takes place and to pay any fees charged by them. If you fail to do so, this may mean that we are unable to record the ceremony or the event or release the video to you until that consent (which is required for copyright reasons) has been obtained.
It as also the clients responsibility to seek permission from the venue before the booking take place, with regards to the equipment we will bring on the event day. This is particularly in relation to the 9ft mini-jib & 16ft jib crane which can take up some space. This is to ensure that what the client has booked with us, can be performed on the day without obstructions
Due to Aviation restrictions, Aerial drone Photography/Videography will be restricted in certain areas and venues. A CAA Licensed Pilot may then be required, with the relevant insurance documents requested by the venue. These costs would be passed on to the client for hiring this type of CAA service.
Also, there may be technical issues with flight of aerial drone on the day, which would result in non-aerial capture. We endeavor to ensure this service is performed, to the best of our ability, but cannot be ultimately responsible for non-flight. Other factors which result in non-flight are things such as delays on day, available manpower & staff, locations and Environmental weather (rain/snow/wind).
There are however, certain circumstances where the venue may only need to give permission on their private property, thus allowing the Aerial drone to be flown without these costs applied. We would request the venue to write an email stating this, but it is the clients responsibility to ensure these permissions are sought. For further clarification, please contact AmarGMedia before booking.
Schedule of Events (Itinerary)
We will try to agree a schedule | itinerary of contents of the recording with you. Please note that the contents of that schedule may need adjustment on the day according to any unforeseen circumstances.

We also request an itinerary for each event, which will detail the general schedule and timings/locations for the event day itself. If there are unplanned or surprise events within the itinerary which we are not aware of beforehand or not in the submitted itinerary, we will endeavor to ensure we capture this, however, cannot be ultimately responsible if this is missed, or partly captured.
When submitting an itinerary, it is important to ensure any specific or particular ceremonial event, surprise events or person/s you wish to have captured is detailed as accurately as possible and this information relayed to us. Our services is to capture your wedding events and wedding day as we see it unfold. The purpose of an itinerary is to follow the schedule of events through the day and apply photography and video when required based on the type of wedding, and our experience of these events.

We also request the client provide us with exact times and locations for every part of the day events, as this will reduce any potential confusion and focus more on the work to be carried out
Co-operation work with other Media Suppliers
From time to time, we are hired to work aside another media company operating on behalf of the other partner/family side. As we have no problems with this, however, the client must be advised that there will not be a controlled environment for capture due to the other company also performing their work, within their operating procedure and environment. We do not accept any responsibility for a non-AGM team members in direct view of our captures, and potentially failing a capture of a critical moment. We cannot control their movements, and this should be acknowledged by both Bride/Groom families
