Should I or shouldn’t I have a photobooth?

This is the question we find being asked by many Brides to be nowadays!

We’ve all been to many weddings where the photobooth is a prominent feature on the wedding day and these questions always arise when trying to make a decision…. Do we want to splash extra cash on an added feature? I don’t really like how they look and it doesn’t fit with my style.

We can’t get away from the fact that it really is a great talking point at a wedding and can really create a fun and enjoyable activity for the wedding guests.  You will find the youngest to the oldest of your family and friends throwing on a pair of fancy glasses or a funny wig and taking to the camera time and time again!

The pictures are hilarious and tend to get funnier as the evening continues! And for every guest, provides a brilliant keepsake that will leave them with fond memories from your special day.

Here we share with you 7 great ideas for your wedding day photo booth, taking a look at some alternative options for backdrops instead of using the standard booth that is usually provided. You can really have some fun with these and all you require is a blank canvas, backdrop or empty wall. Anything is possible and can be created to fit with your wedding theme and colour scheme.
