We had a great time last night providing the green screen photo booth to capture memories at Steph and Mark Vardy’s wedding reception.
Everyone had fun dressing up in silly glasses, hats and boas while making use of the digital green screen that gives limitless options for your backdrop, be it a wedding, party or any other celebration we will leave smiles on the faces of all who join the party.
We have just spent an amazing weekend completing some of the most varied jobs imaginable.
Friday Evening we had the pleasure of supplying a green screen photo booth to the NHS Sussex and Partnership Trust’s Practice Partner Awards at the Brighton Hilton Metropole. This was our second outing at this amazing annual event for in excess of 600 loyal and hardworking NHS staff.
Saturday brought an entirely different experience with our first job a green screen photo booth hired to capture the attendees of Witchfest 2019.
This event is the largest Witchcraft festival held in the World, was held in Fairfield Halls, Croydon. Witchfest featured six talks and workshops each hour with subjects on a wide range of Witchcraft, Wiccan, Pagan, Occult and Mythological subjects. The topics of the workshops, or talks range from popular Pagan fiction to Aleister Crowley and everything in between. The entertainment was first rate, featuring live bands, DJ, and a team of morris dancers.There were more talks and workshops than ever before given by the most famous Witchcraft and Wiccan authors and experts in the world.
Later Saturday we were hired to provide a Magic Mirror for a thirteenth birthday celebration in Sunbury upon Thames, lucky Amelia had a great party with 30 other very excited teens and family members.
Our usual life as a wedding supplier continued with the marrage of Phil and Rachel at the amazing Old Thorns Hotel and Golf Resort in Haslemere Surrey providing a magic mirror photo booth and our stunning 4ft tall LED “MR&MRS” carnival lights. Phil and Rachel and their lovely guests had a blast collecting a huge number of images in front of our mirror.

Once you decide that a photo booth is to be part of your entertainment package the first decision is the style of photo booth you wish to hire. There are a huge number of options available from selfie pods and iPad based stands through to the more recognisable walk in booths and magic mirrors. Each has its benefits with the selfie pods and stands offering great value for money and often being unmanned, the traditional walk in booths giving a more traditional photo booth feel and often having far more in the way of features like green screen and video or a magic mirror that without doubt is the most interactive of the options as all the fun of the photo booth happens in the open and gives those surrounding the chance to photo bomb the images.
Another point to consider is the style of photography, a traditional photo booth will likely produce the majority of images with your guests dressed in props and few sensible shots while a magic mirror photo booth often pulls on the selfie culture and has guests taking full length photos of their outfits and as couples or groups alongside the fun photo booth images.
Whatever your choice we are sure your guests will have a fabulous time recording the antics of your event giving a huge number of images to spark memories for years to come.
Start the fun early, a photo booth is a great icebreaker and can get a party started far sooner that waiting for the dancing to begin. At a weddings we often start the booth immediately after the first dance and cake cutting, this gives the evening guests a great way of interacting with those who have been at the wedding all day (and maybe had a glass or two of fizz) without feeling they have to “catch up” to join in. At a party or prom a photo booth running from the beginning of the night will allow guests to capture outfits and if choosing a magic mirror can act as an alternative to an event photographer.
If you are giving favours or goody bags these can be incorporated into your photo booth hire, for a truly unique memento small frames or keyrings can be added to your photo booth hire as another way of displaying your images.
Where you choose for your photo booth to be set up will have a massive impact on the use of the photo booth. Wherever possible plan to have your photo booth set in an area where it is both visible and where your guests can see it, the side of the dancefloor is great for a magic mirror as it will catch movement and lights in the background giving depth to your finished photos. A bar area is also a great place as this generally has your guests visiting often. With the cost of a photo booth hire being as it is you obviously want to ensure that it is used to its fullest.
Fun props make photo booth images what they are, it is worth considering if you wish to either theme the props you use or limit the style. Old fashioned props on stick are a great idea as an alternative to feather boas and the large and silly photo booth hats and glasses as your guests will remain far more visible or you can go for broke and provide a chest of props. If your party is fancy dress themed we often advise to limit props and catch the hard work your guests have put into their outfits.
Finally decide on if you wish to share your images using an on-line gallery or social media – or indeed both, we get countless requests from guests for the photo booth files from weddings and parties so it is worth considering in advance to ensure you are only sharing what you have decided to share.
