Couple win breach of contract case over missing wedding album

Bournemouth Echo: ALBUM: Bianca and Chris Hanley with their daughter Jasemine ALBUM: Bianca and Chris Hanley with their daughter Jasemine

A YOUNG couple have won their claim for breach of contract after a photographer failed to produce their wedding album more than a year after the big day.

Photographer John Paine, who owns Special Occasions Bridal House in Poole, has been ordered to pay £1,450 plus £60 court fees after he said it was “impossible” to produce the album.

Bianca and Chris Hanley fell in love with the design for the wedding album when they met Mr Paine at the BIC Wedding Show in February 2011.

They decided to employ him for their wedding at Compton Acres on 8 June 2012 and paid him £2,250 to create the Luscious Album Package. Bianca said: “He promised something he couldn’t deliver and we feel that we were completely mis-sold. At least four months passed and he still hadn’t made any progress on the album. Eventually on 27 September 2012 he cobbled together a preview but it was an absolute disgrace.”

Bianca, 23, gave birth to her daughter Jasmine three months ago and said the whole debacle had been incredibly stressful, especially as her husband Chris, 25, was in the Navy and often away.

John Paine, 62, said he will be appealing the decision. In a previous hearing the photographer had said: “It was impossible to achieve what they wanted.”

Paine was quick enough to take their cash but unable or incapable of delivering the goods. No refund/apology forthcoming. A bit of honesty at the outset wouldn't have gone amiss. Sounds more like fraud, selling something you can't deliver.

Why is he only paying £1450 when they paid him £2250? He should also be paying damages as this couple don't have a record of their big day.

I'm sure there are better ways to spend £2,250 than on a wedding album especially when you are just starting a family. Hate to think how much they spent on the whole wedding, probably more than enough for a substantial deposit on a house.

In which case he should hold errors and omissions insurance, which any business that accepts payment for service up front holds.

This may be a case for the Office of Fair Trading. And a lawsuit for implying the customers are at fault. That is libel.

This noob has set himself up for a fall.

Why is everyone just assuming that the couple are the ones in the right? There are many people who have had no trouble at all with their photos. Is it possible that the couple asked for something that was just not achievable? Photos taken one day cannot always be recreated on another day. i.e. different weather condidtion, time of day etc. Yes, maybe the photographer could have explained to the couple about the impracticality of duplicating one album exactly the same way as another seen in the shop, but did the couple make themselves absolutely clear about what they were wanting? A difference of opinion is something we have all had to deal with. I am afraid I like to hear both sides of the story, and newspapers do not always report the full facts. I, for one, would use this photographer because of previous reviews over the years. I know people who have had no problems at all with Mr Paine and have been extrmely pleased with the results he gets. One bad situation should not tarnish an otherwise good track record.

He took £2250 and did not deliver what they wanted therefore they should be entitled to a full refund

There is no detail written about what went wrong, just its was impossible to achieve - what was impossible? Were images lost, did it rain all day so there were no outside shots in the gardens. As always bad, targeting reporting portraying the negative in everything. How can this 'news' be useful to anyone if there isn't any detail or told fairly. This is bad press for him, but is it the only complaint he has had since starting? What about the satisfied clients he has had? What is the point of this, 6 short paragraphs with very basic information, but only to ruin the reputation of a local business working hard for the industry and paying taxes.

I'm not siding at all with couple/photographer but my complaint is how basic this report is and how no thought given to the consequences of it. How can the reader make their mind up on just this.

Its nice to see that someone can look outside the box, there is a lot more to this than we may think I am sure.
Personally as a reasonably inteligent person I don't judge people by other peoples comments, I honestly don't think that a pro wedding photographer would not produce the goods he has been paid for, go to court, risk his reputation unless he had a very good reason, there's more to this.
If Mr. Paine does appeal and win, would the echo print the story ? Na.

It appears that the couple wanted a wedding album with the same internal layout as someone else's wedding, I can't see how this can be done myself but hey ho. I notice from Mr Paines Facebook page that the couple paid their bill so were obviously happy till that point, they even ordered more photos for their album so were happy till then as well. Obviously there is more to this than we know.

I hope John Paine pulls out of the crap that people are saying, especially as I know he puts so much into every wedding he photographs. For those who are knocking the price he charges for his service is because he's good. If you see this John, keep going and keep up the good work you do.
