    I've been married since 27th September 2014. Whilst the photographerst where brilliant on the day, since the wedding day itself, their lack of communication has been appalling.

    18 months later and still now album, and it's not for trying either. He's made up excuse after excuse not to contact us or meet up on planned days. We have acctually managed to make up the final version of the album, on computer but we've no physical album yet.

    Does anyone have any ideas onot how I can complain about this guy?

    Has he got profiles on FBook or Tw1tt3r? Writing on these more public pages can sometimes get a result. Does the contract specify what exactly he should provide and when? Has he been paid in full? If you have paid, you could as a last resort threaten court for not providing what you paid for. If you haven't paid, you can make it clear that you won't pay until he produces the album. I got married a month before you and we got our album in October of the same year, so a wait of this long is ridiculous.

    30th August 2014 was the best birthday ever.
    It was the day that I became Mrs. Dixon.

    He was paid in full £1500 a week or so before the wedding. Including in our package was a 30 paged wedding album leather cased.

    The excuses that he has made are rediculus. Apparently his Mother had a heart attack and then caught dementia.

    The last that I heard from him was that he has lost his sight and can't drive.

    The shop since the wedding has closed down and from what I know he now works from home.

    I have to agree with EC and suggest getting your contract and threatening with court.

    I really hope you get it sorted xx

    Well he certainly sounds like he's had a run of bad luck (note of sarcasm in voice) Doubt it's all true! If polite requests have fallen on deaf ears then start playing hard ball. I'm with everyone else on this. Tell him you will issue terrible reviews on any wedding website you can find and also his own Facebook and Twitter. Also give him a time ultimatum for when you will begin court proceedings for breech of contract. If he exceeds that time limit follow through with the court action. No excuse for his behaviour and he should want to protect his reputation. If he was truely having personal issues sounds like he has had plenty of opportunity to explain it to you. Getting your album to you will be much cheaper than a court payout. Good luck.

    Maybe trying to find other people who have had weddings with him and asking their experience will help shed some light on the situation and will help out if you do need to go to court. It is breach of contract if he hasn't fulfilled the contract and a small claims court will award you damages.
    If you have access to the images I would take them to a different photographer of similar price, explain the situation and ask them to put an album together for you. As long as it's not extortionate you will then be able to claim back those costs from your current photographer in court.

    Explain to him that you will take him to court if he doesn't give you what you paid for within a set time
    If he doesn't then take him to court
    Don't slate him on social media or the likes it will cause more trouble than you need especially if you have to go to court
