Do or Don't: Getting Ready Photos

The moments leading up to the Ceremony can go fast! Some couples don't care for photos of Getting Ready process while others really treasure it. I'm here to help give some insight on what can be expected during this time of the day.

I particularly enjoy taking photos of this time. It's one of the moments when the emotions are truly sincere. Watching the build up to the I do's is truly wonderful to see.

The care, precision, and mindfulness that goes into looking great for this day is incredible.

You get a snapshot of the details that matter to you and make you unique.

You get to relive the quiet moments that may have gone unoticed.

You see the deep inhales and exhales as you put on the final touches.

But the best part is the witnessing the raw, unfiltered, emotion from those who love you the most. Being able to share and capture these moments is what weddings are all about. The love, joy and pride in the eyes of those who love you is unmatched.

Can you tell I'm all for Getting Ready photos? What do you think? Let's talk about it!

Do you come and quote for each job ?

No. Listening to our customers has told us they prefer to know the price they will pay before they book so our fixed pricing approach was based on customer feedback. Many companies will offer a "free" quote but nothing in this world is free - there is a cost associated with the time to visiti your home to do a quote which ultimately finds its way into the final price you pay.

How can you offer fixed prices without seeing my property first ?

Having cleaned 1,000's of homes and offices there isn't much that suprises us. If more time is required to complete the work to our high standards you will not be charged extra.

What if I just want one room cleaned ?

We offer single room cleaning for just £49. You can book this online here.

What if anything goes wrong ?

If you are not happy we offer a 100% money guarantee and we have £1m of public liablilty insurance should anything go wrong. So far we've never had to a make a claim against this as we pride ourselves in doing a thorough, professional job first time, evvery time.

Do you offer any discounts ?

Yes, if you book online you save 10% as this saves us time and we pass this on to you as a saving.

Do you charge VAT ?

No, we do not charge VAT. The price you see is the price you pay.

How many rooms are included in your fixed priced packages ?

Cleaning prices quoted cover properties up to 4 bedrooms - please call for cleaning prices for larger properties.

What services do you offer ?

We specialise in carpet, rug, upholstery, mattress and floor cleaning. We also offer stain removal.

How long does it take ?

The length of time varies based on a number of factors including the number of rooms, the size of your rooms, the current condition of your carpets and the package you choose. Generally 1.5 to 3 hours is a good guideline to work to for the average sized home.

Do I have to be in whilst you do the cleaning ?

Obviously we need to be able to gain entry to the property, but no you don't need to be there througout the cleaning process (unless you'd like to of course). We have completed the cloeaning of many end of tenancy rental properties where we collect the keys from the letting agents and drop them back afterward. Our technicians are DBS (formerly CRB) checked so you can be assured of thier integrity.

Do I have to move my furniture ?

If you book a Standard or Bronze carpet cleaning package then, as these are lower cost options, you either need to move the furniture before we arrive or we can clean around them. If you book a Silver, Gold or Platinum carpet cleaning package we move and put back in place all the furniture we are able to.

How long is it before I can walk on the carpets again ?

It depends on the condition of the carpet before we've cleaned it but usually they will be "walk dry" within 2-3 hours. In some extreme cases or if the property temperature is cold it could be 3-4 hours.
