Every couple wants their special day to be memorable, fun for the guests and to feel special to them. In this digital era many of us create websites to help with the organisation of the event, we sent out online invitations and create hashtags for our guests to share their captures of the day on social media. You can take this one step further and host the coolest reception by hiring a wedding photo booth.
Photo booths at weddings are perfect for Western or Great Gatsby themed events, for rustic or glamour style parties; there’s just something magical that happens when you let your guests loosen up and express themselves, especially when there are fun props involved. Here are five tricks how a photo booth makes the coolest wedding party…
We all have seen how straight after the wedding vows, there is a long queue of people who want to congratulate the bride and groom and to take a photo with them. By the end of that marathon of posing and smiling, the couple is exhausted. A photo booth makes everyone walk in with a smile and strike a pose. It is a great ice-breaker to prevent pre-reception boredom or to give something to do for those who are a bit shy to get on the dance floor. The wedding couple can relax and stop feeling as if they need to rush through pictures just to hurry up and get back to the guests.
A professional photographer is there to capture all memories of the big day: from walking down the aisle, to the first dance, and everything in between. But what about having a photo of all your bridesmaids wearing fun shades and mustaches; or of your uncle wearing a Western hat and a face revolver?! A wedding photo booth creates and captures memories that you may not otherwise have, and instantly prints a keepsake so it can be will always remembered.
Bring people together
Nothing brings people together quite like the line-up for a photo booth. People of all ages get talking and giggling – from grandparents, to school mates and little nephews. A wedding photo booth will have people talking long after the big day has come and gone.
Every couple wants to say “Thank you” for coming to the wedding guests in a unique and memorable way. Glittery souvenirs, candles or boxes of sweets are nice, but will they be kept for the years to come? One nice idea is to give them an empty key ring with a note to go to the photo booth later or a personalised photo strip that captures just how much fun they had at your wedding.
A photo booth gives a fun new twist to the traditional guestbook and is probably one of the coolest reasons to hire one! Guests receive two prints – one to keep and one to add to the guest book while leaving a message around the photographs. Creating the perfect compliment to the official wedding photos and recording who attended the wedding and how much fun they had at the reception, this will be a guestbook that you will want to look at again and again!
