sotto Posted July 20, 2014 Share Posted July 20, 2014 As far as I can see from a quick search this topic hasn't been raised since 2008 so I hope it's OK to bring it up again. I played for a wedding yesterday at which the service started exactly 42 minutes late. Now I accept that sometimes there are roadworks or whatever that build in a margin of error but not that much. As it happens I had no subsequent engagements that day but they had no way of knowing that. To me it's completely unacceptable. If you make an appointment with me, which a wedding is, for a certain time, then I expect you to be there at that time. The same as any other professional person would do. If you do not show up at the appointed time then the deal should be off, your fault, your problem. I'm interested to know if anyone has policies in place to deal with this, such as refundable deposits for lateness or contractual agreements as to when the organist is entitled to shut up shop and go home. I don't want to ruin anyone's "big day" but neither do I want my good will to be taken advantage of and for anyone to be able to ruin my day by their lateness!
