1. THE CONTRACT
The contract is between the client & Hugo & Elliot Bridal. It covers the ordering and purchasing of
wedding gowns, bridesmaid dresses, accessories and services (i.e. bridal service & on the day services)
described on the order form.
Your invoice must be paid in full within 6 months from the date your order was placed. Please make sure all
payments have been made before your gown is collected.
An order is confirmed when the client has paid Hugo & Elliot Bridal the required 1st payment/deposits.
By paying these payments, the client is accepting the Terms & Conditions set out in these Terms & Conditions,
regardless of return of the contract.
2. PAYMENT TERMS
Your order is only confirmed once we have received a Deposit Payment & an accepted T&C’s document.
Orders are not placed until both these terms have been fulfilled. Once an order has been placed, the following
payments are applied. Your invoice is split into two payments;
1st Payment: The Deposit Payment (50% Non- Refundable Deposits) – Alongside any Damage Deposits (If
2nd Payment: The remaining balance. Due within 6 months after the order has been placed, or before the
Any payments made before this time are at the risk of the client as only credit will be issued against your
wedding gown, if changes need to be made, you change your mind, or cancel the order. No refunds will be
3. HOLDING DEPOSITS
Holding Deposits are available for a £200 fee. This would be treated as part payment of your 1st Deposit
Payment and is therefore non-refundable but is redeemable against your wedding dress.
Holding deposits are only available when the bride is wanting to purchase the gown, but would like to confirm
the order at a later date, (the full 50% deposit must be paid no later than 4 weeks after the initial Holding
Deposit was made.)
No orders will be placed until the full 50% deposit has been paid. Failure to adhere to the above will result in
your wedding gown being cancelled with us and Hugo & Elliot Bridal, therefore, having the right to
cancel your Holding Deposit Agreement, all payments are Non-Refundable.
We strongly advise getting Wedding Insurance to cover your day.
If a bride wishes to cancel their order, they must do so in writing, either by letter or email. The order is
cancelled once Hugo & Elliot Bridal have received the confirmation and responded to confirm so.
ALL 1st payments are non-refundable (1st payments are based on the agreed amount at the time of booking, the 50%
of this invoice is classed as the 50% 1st payment. No refunds will be due in the event that the order has been
cancelled.) If the event is cancelled, all payments made are non-refundable and the remaining balance is still
If a client wishes to postpone their payments for any reason, they must request this in email, and Christian
Alexander Bridal will respond accordingly. All payments would then be transferred to the new date, provided
they are agreed by Hugo & Elliot Bridal. In the event Hugo & Elliot Bridal do not agree to the
postponed payments, their cancellation policy in Point 3 of this contract would apply.
Hugo & Elliot Bridal strongly recommend taking out wedding insurance to cover your date.
6. CHANGES TO ORDER
If the client wishes to change their order it must be made in writing, either by letter or email (text
message/SOCIAL MEDIA is not accepted). A telephone call will be accepted, but the client will be asked to
confirm any changes in writing (either via letter or email). Hugo & Elliot Bridal cannot guarantee that
changes can be made, if a gown is confirmed as ‘in production’ the order cannot be changed and the contract
in point 1 applies.
If payments have been made, no refund will be given. If Hugo & Elliot Bridal agree to change your order,
this will be granted as credit on your account, redeemable against another wedding gown only if the gown has
not been confirmed as in production.
7. FAILURE TO PAY
If the payment is not made within the timescales detailed above, on the invoice or otherwise, this will breach
the contract. Hugo & Elliot Bridal will treat the contract as at an end.
If Hugo & Elliot Bridal treat the contract as at an end, any payments made up to that date shall be retained.
Any remaining balance will also be payable immediately to Hugo & Elliot Bridal.
Hugo & Elliot Bridal are therefore entitled to reallocate stock without informing the client, should the
contract be treated as at an end. This clause is without prejudice to Hugo & Elliot Bridal’s rights to claim
damages from the client in respect of any loss suffered by Hugo & Elliot Bridal.
8. BRIDAL GOWN COLLECTION
All garments paid for in full must collected once items arrive in store. A suitable time for collection will be
arranged between the bride and a member of the Hugo & Elliot Bridal team.

Bridal cannot be held responsible for ‘Acts of God’ (Fire, flood etc), Government Advice, Pandemics, labour
disputes, failure of payments and any other unforeseeable circumstance that prevent the promise of its
