I’m so excited this year to be bringing Father Christmas to my studio to meet you all. I have spent the last few months preparing a beautiful setup and I can’t wait to show it all to you.
Bookings will open at 9am on the 16th August to registered customers and go on general sale at 10am.
Sessions will run all day on the 9th and 16th of October, and once the appointments are gone, Santa will need to head back to the North Pole to carry on his Christmas prep! So remember to grab your spot now!
Check out all you need to know below.
When do they take place?
Saturday 9th and Saturday 16th October at my studio just outside Wallingford.
Why are the sessions held in October?
Of course, we’ll be capturing the magic of your special meeting with the big man, and we need time after your session to beautifully process your images, upload them to your private gallery and allow you time to see and place your order. Digital images will be available for immediate download. There will also be a range of printed products available for you to order, which will be processed and sent to your home address. This gives you plenty of time to use your images for Christmas cards and gifts.
How long are the sessions?
Your appointment lasts 15 minutes, this is much longer than you would normally get at a Christmas Grotto experience. We’ll give your little ones time with Santa, and can we can also do shots without Santa too if you wish.
How much does it cost?
The ticket price is £20 and includes a private meet and greet with Santa plus a little gift from the elves to your little ones. (please make sure you remember to let us know how many children you are bringing and what their names are).
After your session, you’ll receive login details to your online gallery where you can choose your imagery and purchase any other prints / products you wish to get for Christmas. Prices start at £35.
How many people can I bring?
The session is valid for one family only. If you have friends/family/cousins that would like to bring then please try and book a back to back session.
Can I change my day or time?
All bookings are final, we have Father Christmas for a limited amount of time and generally sell out quickly, so please note, no amendments can be made to your booking.
How do I book?
Bookings open at 9am on the 16th of August to those who have pre-registered and go on general sale (if there are any spaces left) at 10am.
Plus as an extra bonus, Santa can also present your little ones with a special certificate to confirm they have been on the nice list this year. If you want to add this to your experience, make sure to choose that option when booking.
Do you have any non-Santa options?
We’ll be happy to shoot a family image, and images of your little ones with and without Santa on the day if you wish.
