TERMS AND CONDITIONS FOR SMALL WEDDINGS AT CREAR
The purpose of these Terms & Conditions is to ensure the satisfaction and comfort of both parties. It is taken that you agree to these Terms & Conditions on payment of your non-refundable deposit, regardless of how & by whom your deposit is paid.
Any questions relating to these, or regarding any aspect of the services or venue that Crear will provide, must be raised prior to payment of your deposit.
The governing law of the contract is the Law of Scotland.
Your contract is with us, Crear Space to Create Ltd (Company number SC472851) and may be trading as Crear, Crear Weddings, The Small Wedding Venue, or Wee Weddings. VAT Registration number 761777104.
Crear’s contract is with you solely. We will take instruction only from the person(s) booking, unless an alternative person(s) has been nominated and notified to Crear in writing. No third party, who is not a party to the contract, shall have any right to enforce its terms. If only one person is making the wedding booking that person confirms that s/he has the authority to make the booking on behalf of both persons intending to be married. Our contract will therefore be with both such persons.
We appreciate that, on occasions, someone else (such as a parent) may wish to make payments due to us on your behalf. We are happy to accept such payments but please note that, unless we agree otherwise with you in writing, you are legally responsible for any payments due to us.
Our terms and special offers are subject to change. For the avoidance of any doubt the terms of any promotional material sent to you, which may contradict or be superseded by your booking letter, do not form part of your contract.
Confirmation of Booking & Payment Terms
A non-refundable deposit of £1,000 is required within seven days of the date of your booking letter to secure and guarantee your choice of date in the Crear diary for your Crear Small Gourmet wedding. It is taken that, on payment of the deposit, you agree to these Terms & Conditions which are legally binding.
A contract is only formed between you and Crear when the deposit payment has been received. No booking application shall be binding on us and no contract shall be formed unless and until we receive your deposit as booking confirmation.
If your wedding/celebration date is scheduled more than 1 year after the date of our confirmation of booking we reserve the right to increase the price of your wedding package by up to 10% for each complete period of 12 months between these two dates.
Balance of hire
The balance of exclusive use hire is payable four calendar months prior to the date of your arrival. Should this not be received within said timescale this may result in cancellation or postponement of Crear’s services.
Additional day guests
Additional day guests for your wedding, and any other additional costs due, will be invoiced and are payable in full four weeks prior to your arrival date.
It is your responsibility to supply final guest numbers, menu choices and any dietary requirements prior to this date. Any final balance because of an increase in numbers or additional services must be settled prior to your wedding taking place. Please note that your guest numbers cannot decrease after four weeks prior to your arrival date.
We reserve the right to invoice any costs properly due and payable, but which have been omitted in error from your final statement, at a later date.
Any error or omission in any information or document issued by us shall be subject to correction, provided that the correction does not materially affect the contract.
We are unable to cater for any dietary requirements not notified to us in advance. Please note that our food at Crear is prepared in a kitchen which handles all allergens. We cannot guarantee that our food is free from trace elements of any allergen. Crear does not assume any liability for adverse reactions to foods consumed, or to items one may come into contact with, while eating at Crear.
You may bring animals onto the premises only where you have previously disclosed this to us and been given prior permission. Permitted animals must be kept on a lead at all times.
A security deposit of £500 is required. This will be included in your final statement to cover the following:
• Any damage, theft or breakages caused to the fabric or contents of Crear, by you or your guests during your visit.
• Any costs incurred by Crear arising as a direct result from you or your guests knowingly transmitting infectious diseases, for example Coronavirus or Norovirus.
• Any balance owed for bar services.
• Any costs incurred by Crear to dispose of items of decoration etc left & uncollected items.
The security deposit will be repaid within seven working days of your departure by the same method as originally paid, unless uplifts from Crear are outstanding.
Any additional costs, in excess of the security deposit, will be due by you and payable immediately, prior to your departure.
Change of dates & cancellation policy
Not less than four months before your wedding we are happy to rearrange dates, if required, subject to an administrative fee of £500, which is due within 7 days of your new booking letter.
If you need to cancel your wedding it is your sole responsibility to notify us and to ensure that we have received the notification in writing. Any such notification of cancellation should be emailed to email@example.com.

Cancellation by us
We reserve the right to charge an administration fee for any late payments.
We reserve the right to cancel your booking without liability to you and without any obligation to refund your deposit if:
(a) you do not pay us the balance of your wedding package price by the date due for such payment; or
(b) we have reasonable grounds to believe that you may not pay us the balance of your wedding package price by the due date and we have requested you to explain the position and you have not done so satisfactorily; or
(c) we discover, before you have paid the balance of your wedding/celebration package price, that you have deliberately concealed information, or deliberately given us incorrect information, about your intended wedding in circumstances where (if you had not done so) it would have been reasonably foreseeable that we would not have accepted your booking; or
(d) we have reasonable grounds to believe that your behaviour or that of your guests at the wedding/celebration is likely to result in damage to the venue or to our property and/or injury to people.
Notifying your Celebrant & the Registrar

Example: industrial disputes, natural disaster, fire or adverse weather conditions, pandemic or epidemic, interruption or failure of utility services or similar events beyond our control. Under these circumstances, Crear will endeavour to reschedule your wedding day or to source an alternative venue of a similar standard. Crear shall not be liable for any loss, damage, or costs, resulting from a Force Majeure event.
Our total liability to you for any loss you suffer will be limited to the total amount due to us for your wedding package. We will not be liable for any losses which were not reasonably foreseeable to both you and us when the contract was entered into, nor for any losses that were not caused by any breach of contract or breach of statutory duty or negligence on our part.
Nothing in these terms excludes or limits in any way our liability for death or personal injury caused by negligence, or for fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation, or for any other matter for which it would be illegal or unlawful for us to exclude or limit (or attempt to exclude or limit) our liability.
Changes to Crear

We will use all reasonable endeavours to ensure that no components of your wedding have to be altered. We do, however, reserve the right to make changes to certain components if this is necessary to comply with safety requirements or other changes in law or relevant codes of practice, or to make other minor changes which we reasonably believe will not be to the detriment of your overall wedding experience.
Unless the change is one which is likely to fundamentally change the nature of your wedding experience we will not offer any refunds, costs or compensation.
