My website is protected with SSL and a secure page a lock icon will appear on your web browser to show that the page is secure. Any information provided over the internet can never be guaranteed 100% secure.

Clients and Wedding Guests Captured in Photographs

Under GDPR legislation, a photograph may in some instances constitute a form of personal data where they can be processed to allow “the unique identification or authentication of a natural person”. Radek Cepelak Photography will never photograph an individual as a means of unique identification or authentication unless consensually contracted to do so. Guests at weddings appear in photos taken by Radek Cepelak Photography as a part of the visual recording of the event in photos. Guests captured in portraits or in group photos do so as part of the event and their rights are protected by Radek Cepelak Photography as detailed in this privacy policy.

In terms of explicit GDPR compliance, wedding clients and guests are photographed within the parameters of GDPR legislation on the basis of ‘legitimate interests’. The taking of photographs of wedding guests when viewed as a form of processing personal data is necessary for the legitimate interests of Radek Cepelak Photography as a photography business unless there is a good reason to protect a given individual’s personal data which overrides those legitimate interests.
Operating within the parameters of legitimate interests as laid out in GDPR legislation, the disproportionate effort involved in providing privacy policy information to all wedding guests at the event and the degree to which it would distract me from performing my job,makes it unfeasible to do. Wedding clients are therefore requested in their contract to direct their guests to read this privacy policy in advance of the event and to advise them to contact us in advance with any concerns around the processing of their personal data, namely being photographed.

Withdrawal of Consent

Anyone photographed by Radek Cepelak Photography, whether a client or wedding guest, and whether past or current may withdraw consent for a photograph in which they appear to be displayed. The process for this is to email Radek Cepelak Photography at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. specifying the photo in question. Following this request, Radek Cepelak Photography will then remove the photo from online and printed display wherever it appears.

Social Media Policy and Usage

I adopt a safe and responsible Social Media Policy. While we may have official profiles on social media platforms users are advised to verify the authenticity of such profiles before engaging with, or sharing information with such profiles. We will never ask for personal details on social media platforms. Users are advised to conduct themselves appropriately when engaging with us on social media.

Display of Images

I may display any photographs to promote Radek Cepelak Photography on the Radek Cepelak Photography website and blog, on social media, on wedding blogs, on wedding photography related websites, in exhibitions, in advertising, brochures, magazine articles and other such material, providing that the images used are used lawfully and without damage to Radek Cepelak Photography’s client(s). The rights of the people captured in these photographs are protected by Radek Cepelak Photography as detailed in this privacy policy.
