Frequently asked questions

Where are you based?

Our office is in the picturesque North Yorkshire village of Stokesley. We are about an hour from Newcastle and Leeds and about 3 hours from London and Edinburgh, almost the perfect location to cover the whole of the UK.

Will you travel to shoot our wedding?

Yes of course, we enjoy adventure and meeting new people in different places. We will travel anywhere as long as our travel costs are covered and should we need overnight accommodation we would expect this to be covered too.

Do you cover the whole day?

We cover all of the day. This typically means that we arrive around 2 hours before the service and leave a little while after the first dancing has occurred. This is typically around 9pm. If you would like something a bit different just ask. If you would like us to stay later or to cover until much later we charge a nominal fee for this if appropriate.

What will we receive and when will we see our images?

After the wedding we will have your images ready for viewing approximately 21 days after the wedding. We invite you to come and have an exclusive, champagne viewing at our office. Our entry package will provide you with all of the images on a dvd as hi res jpegs, beyond that it depends on which package you have selected as to what you will receive.

Do you do group shots?

Yes we do group shots if you request, we recommend keeping them to a minimum for two reasons. Firstly they take a long time out of your wedding day and can irritate guests and secondly our clients rarely include them in their final album choice anyway.

Will you work overseas?

We do work overseas and we are more than happy to give you a bespoke cost if you would be kind enough to provide us with full details of what you are looking for.

How many images will we get?

There is no obvious answer to this question because it depends what happens at your wedding. However to give you a guide we would expect you to receive anywhere between 300-500 images from a traditional British wedding.

How do we book?

In order to confirm your booking with Holden & Jones we require a £500 deposit. The balance of fees are due 8 weeks before the wedding date.

Will you hold the date without a deposit?

I am afraid not. In order to be fair to us and anyone else who wants to book us on a given day the date is only secured upon receipt of the full deposit.

Which is your most popular package?

Without doubt the Queensberry package is the most popular. It is very hard not to fall in love with the Queensberry albums once you have seen them at first hand.

Are there always two of you at our wedding?

Yes, we believe that in order to offer the level of service and coverage that our clients seek it is impossible to deliver this with only one photographer.

Are you insured?

Of course we are fully insured as every business should be. We are a ltd company and as such there are additional legislative measures we need to take.

Can we come and visit you?

We welcome you to come and see us, view our portfolio and chat through your plans for your wedding.

Do you offer a pre wedding shoot?

We do, we offer a portrait shoot for couples which is starts at £250. This is discounted for couples that have booked us to £100. Please get in touch for more details.
