The Mayfair Co (photographers)

Hi everyone,

I found this photography company on Wowcher back in June when they had an amazing deal - £999 package for just £299. The photos on their website looked great and we're on a serious budget, so we booked it and they replied and said everything was fine and that the photographer would be in touch nearer the time.

I'm now a week and a half away from my wedding and I have yet to speak to my photographer. I chased the company last week and they said the photographer would phone H2B or me on Tuesday. It's now Wednesday evening and still nothing and I'm getting really worried. There has been zero communication from this company. I don't know when they're turning up on the day, we haven't been able to discuss what we want with the photographer and I'm just really scared.

Has anyone ever used this company? Did anyone else buy this deal on Wowcher?

And - just in case - does anyone know where on earth I would be able to find a photographer with a week to go?? image

    I suggest stating which county you are in to help people make recommendations. I would def make alternative arrangements. Is their a university nearby which offers a photography course? You might find a student wanting some experience?

  • Thank you. We're getting married in Shropshire.

  • Doesn't sound good, do they have more than one photographer at the company? All sounds odd.

    It maybe worth having a look at alternative photographers as a 'just in case', so that you have a fallback and plan B.

    Have a look on sites like, they have lots at different budgets.

    Call around a few photographers in your area if need be - you might get lucky with one being available with it not being peak season image  Hope you get it sorted.

    Its really frustrating that 'wowcher' and 'groupon' type business come along and under cut us then let the brides down.

    I can see from this thread a few people have been caught out, and I might be able to help image
