    Hi, so, i booked my photographer based on a friends wedding pics, i know he's legit etc - has a web page and a fb page, came to my house for a consultation and was lovely. Heres the problem, its almost 9 weeks to go and i was checking everything was ok with all my suppliers. Emailed them all and got a reply from all of them 3 weeks ago.
    The photographer how ever hasnt replied (1st email i sent on the 23rd april), i emailed him again on sunday, still no reply.
    I made H2B call him last night, both house phone and mobile went to voicemail.
    I feel really stressy about this. (i've already paid him £550 of the £720 fee)
    I also checked last night and his fb business profile has dissappeared. Is it me just over reacting? What would you do? I have his home address too - i'm considering knocking on his door soon if he hasnt been in touch. aaaargh

    I agree with the above posts I would be chasing after him asap. Not answering emails straight away is understandable but boityh phones going straight to voicemail and a missing fb profile smells funny to me. Get on to him! I hope you mange to get hold of him and its just a misunderstanding.

    Maybe he's on holiday possibly before wedding season properly kicks off? I'm sure there's a reasonable explanation so try not to stress too much :) xx

    Just in case its the worst case scenario: have you got a contract (and possibly a receipt)? Really hope he is just on holiday though and has taken down the FB profile so he doesn't get any enquiries whilst he's away and can't respond.

    If you haven't got wedding insurance, get it NOW because if he has absconded, you can claim the money back you've lost and find another photographer! Keep us updated xx

    WOOOOOOOOOOOO .. after a sharp voicemail from the other half he finally replied - he's just adopted a baby so has been pre-occupied with social services etc. He couldn't apologize enough. The facebook page he wasnt even aware had vanished, apparently it is because he had a "add friend" style page that was named with his business name rather than a persons name? All is well and my sanity is restored. Thank god. I was really really really starting to panic.

    What a relief. I was thinking we'd have to get another cake decorator because I couldn't get hold of mine, but it turned out she's been ill.
