Ooh, we do love a photo booth! Find out which one is right for you with these fun ideas for every budget.
Make your own photo booth!
The booth: Create a unique look using a customised backdrop and your own digital camera or Polaroid.
Why we love it: The budget option is often the most creative, meaning you get to personalise your booth to look however you want. Buy a bespoke backdrop from Not on the High Street or Eagle Eyed Bride, or hang up tassels, pom poms or pretty fabric to create a background.
The cost: If you already have a camera, it needn’t cost a thing – result!
Top tip: Leave some instructions and make sure somebody’s on hand to check occasionally that the camera is in focus!
Ask a professional photographer to create your photo booth
The booth: Set up an area at your venue where your photographer can snap you and your wedding party having fun dressing up.
Why we love it: Your photographer takes care of it all and you’re guaranteed some great shots with studio lighting and no red eye! Plus, you can customise your backdrop.
Hire it!: The Silly Studio, £125 per hour (min two hours), includes prints on the night and a DVD of your photos after the event.
Top tip: Run the booth between the speeches and first dance. Chalk up an ‘order of the day’ so guests know when to pose
10 MUST-HAVE WEDDING PHOTOS
Go for an old-school photo booth
