Was at a wedding a few days ago and a meal wasn't provided... yet again!
At another wedding two weeks ago I was promised a meal... but after having to chase the co-ordinator and countless servers, I was eventually furnished with one... minutes before the speeches started.
Does anyone on this forum stipulate in their contract that they must get fed? I am finding that at 70% of the weddings I film, a meal is not provided (let's put this into context, my day starts at 9am and I am there until 11pm...)
There's nothing nicer than sitting while everyone is eating, and being approached by a few of the guests who make it a priority that we are eating too, and the cherry on top is a decent venue where the hot plates of food are on our laps within 5 minutes.
Unfortunately, this is too rare these days. I don't know what it's like in the US, but this is the state of affairs in the UK.
From the client's point of view, I know meals at these places are really expensive, but surely the wedding co-ordinator could sneak us a spare a hot plate of food on the house, considering there is food they will probably be throwing out.
