Terms and Conditions

To ensure Alana MUHA can continue to offer the best services in her business, these terms and conditions have been created as a guideline for you as the client to understand and abide by when booking your appointment.

1. Booking Processes + Booking fees

  • a) Client is to be able to pay all costs related to the service at the time of booking - pricing guidelines can be seen on the service pages on Alana MUHA's website.

  • b) Bookings are only accepted through the contact/book form on this website.

  • c) Once booking is complete and all required details have been discussed the client will receive a booking confirmation detailing the service and their unique estimated quote. The client will need to accept this quote along with these terms and conditions before proceeding.

  • d) After the quote has been accepted, to ensure the booking date is secured a 50% non-refundable "save the date" booking fee invoice will be sent to the client. "Save the date" booking fees will become part of the final costs all together. Please avoid asking for refunds of "save the date" booking fees as they will not be given - read the cancellation/rescheduling policy below for the only exception to this statement. 

  • e) Bookings will be held for 1 week following sending the booking fee invoice, if payment is not received within that time the date will be released to other potential clients.

  • f) The remainder of the invoice will be sent out 1 week (7 days) or as close there to prior to the booking and is to be completed before the service commences - no exceptions. The person responsible for the entire balance is the person(s) who has signed the booking contract. If payment has not been received up to 2 hours before the service is due to commence the booking will not go ahead.

  • g) If your booking is made within a week, the full booking quote will be due to be paid in its entirety as soon as possible in order for the booking to go ahead.

  • h) All payments to be made via card through a link detailed clearly on the invoice sent to the client's email address. Cash is not accepted.

  • i) Appointments can not hold a secondary date as a potential replacement for the original date. Except if your event requires more than 1 date detailed clearly from the beginning. Clients rescheduling a booking must confirm one date only or however many that were reflected in original quote. Unless a "save the date" booking fee is paid Alana MUHA has the right to keep all available dates and times open for booking purposes.

  • j) As soon as the 50% non-refundable "save the date" booking fee has been made the invoice can not be reduced regardless of changes occurring within the booking. However, if changes to the booking arise that involve additional numbers, changes in location or timings that result in an increased quote these may be accommodated where possible to Alana's discretion. 

 

 

2. Cancellation / Rescheduling Policy

  • a) Should your cancellation be advised up to 48 hours in advance of the scheduled booking date and time any additional payments to your "save the date" booking fees will be refunded and the "save the date" booking fee while remaining non-refundable can be transferred to a new date to be selected immediately.

  • b) If cancellation is advised within 48 hours the "save the date" booking fees are non-refundable and non-transferrable and any additional fee's payed won't be refunded. If a new booking date is required this will call for a new "save the date" booking fee to be paid. 

  • c) ‘No Shows’ including vouchers and prepaid appointments (unless for significant proven reason) will not be refunded and vouchers will become redundant. A 'no show' will be called if a client is more than 15 minutes late to their booking with no communication.

  • d) If you require a re-schedule of your booking (pre-wedding consultations included) please get in touch up to 2 hours in advance of the scheduled booking to arrange a new date and time. If you re-schedule within 2 hours with no valid reason or are more than 15 minutes late to your booking with no communication, it may be cancelled and a "late fee" of $25.00 will be applied to the final bill.

3. Cancellation / Rescheduling due to C19 / Illness

  • a) If you are forced to cancel/postpone at any time due to events such as lockdowns or having an illness/covid proven through a legitimate, signed doctors certificate this is the only circumstance where any pre-paid booking fee's including the "save the date" booking fee will be either refunded in full or transferred to a new date.
