27 July 2019


It may only be July, but as ever, preparations are underway for our Father Christmas Experience 2019! The big man visits us in October every year to confirm his naughty/nice lists so we're just days away from opening up the bookings. And you'll need to be fast! Last year sold out in under 24 hours and the interest this year is already huge.

To enable a smooth booking period, please read these FAQs – then if you still have any questions please email christmas@slinkymedia.net and we'll get back to you asap.

When do they take place?

This year, Santa will join us on October 12th, 19th and 26th!

Why October???

We need time after your session to beautifully post process your images, upload them to your private gallery and allow you time to see and place your order. Digital images are available for immediate download, printed products are professionally made at our pro photo lab before dispatching them to you at home. Many clients make their own photo gifts for family, we want to make sure you have plenty of time to enjoy your photographs in the lead up to the big day!

How long is the session?

Your appointment lasts ten minutes, please arrive just on time (not early or late) due to tight schedules and limited parking.

How much does it cost?

The booking fee is £12.50. After your session you'll receive login details to your online gallery where you can purchase a range of products.

Prints from £40
Digitals from £50
All your digitals £150
The Ultimate - All your digitals plus all your prints £250

Can I bring somebody else?

The session is valid for up to four siblings from one family only. If you wish to bring cousins/friends or anybody else, please book a session per family. If you book sessions next to each other we are happy to photograph everybody both together and individually.

Can I change my day or time?

All bookings are final, we have Santa for a limited amount of time and generally sell out quickly, so please note, no amendments can be made to your booking.

What to bring or wear?

The image below is this year's set, we hope you love it! You can't go wrong with wintery whites, greys, blues or full on Christmas jumper reds and greens! Hats, scarves and gloves look great as it's an 'outdoors' set.

But my little one is frightened of Santa?

Please join us on 16th November for a gorgeous Christmas-themed session without Ho ho! Bookings open at the same time as the Father Christmas Experience.

Sold! How do I book?

If you're on our mailing list, you'll receive an email with a booking link on Wednesday 31st July. Bookings open at 9am on Thursday 1st August to the mailing list and at Midday to the general public. Please check our Facebook page at Midday for the booking link!
