Winchester Guildhall – Wedding Fair

Last weekend we were invited to showcase a booth at the Guildhall in Winchester, a stunning Victorian era civic building that sits in the centre of the City. The Winchester event was organised by Grainne Stephens of Espresso Events, a venue finding and event planning company. It was obvious that Grainne had put her all into this event as when I wrote to her the evening before to thank her for some organisational details and the RESERVED parking space, I … Continue reading

An Unexpected Guest – Bah, HUMBUG!

Last night we ran a booth at another Christmas party. It was a fun event in Southampton with the standard booth with greenscreen. The greenscreen gave a backdrop of a departmental graphic on all the photos which were themselves overlaid with a very cheerful Christmas template involving holly and ivy in traditional Christmas colours. A very bespoke, tailored template and graphics is a principle part of the service we offer and sets us apart from competitive businesses. It also means that … Continue reading

Children in Need Appeal – Saturday 12th November

An annual event for us is supporting the Children in Need event at Costco in Southampton. It’s a great event for us, not only do we raise hundreds of pounds for the charity, we also get great exposure to thousands of people during the course of the day who come and brighten up an otherwise normal shopping day by entering the inflatable booth for a family photo session. Last year was a grim and rainy day, reflected on the faces … Continue reading

Anytime Fitness Winchester Membership Push!

Last weekend we attended the Winchester University freshers week which culminated last Saturday with a student fair in the grounds of the University. The guys from Anytime Fitness – a 24 hour gym in the city – had set up their stall and were offering discounts, free energy drinks, T Shirts and you guessed it, a free session in the photobooth! We took the inflatable to Winchester and it just about fitted into the allocated space! Visit our photogallery to … Continue reading

A new addition to our photobooth stable

Until now, we had two types of photobooth: 1. A traditional frame based unit that is totally enclosed and is great for about 5 people. It’s the most popular booth as it fits in most spaces and comes with all the technology including the greenscreen which means that users can change the background to one of many – a photo in central London, or a photo on a Greek beach, for example. 2. Then there is the slightly controversial inflatable … Continue reading

School Prom Season 2016

We’re coming to the end of prom season, we’ve done lots this year. Both proms and graduation balls for schools and Universities. Our booths are ideal for proms, as we can fit a whole class inside one of them! The best booth for a busy prom is the inflatable which measures 2 metres square and is effectively a big square room. With the camera in wide angle mode it grabs images from wall to wall. We’ve counted as many as … Continue reading

University of Birmingham Sports Ball 2016!

Last weekend saw us delivering the inflatable booth to Birmingham for their Sports Ball. This was a late night event on Sunday that started at 10pm and finished at 1.30 am! So, quite a night with queues 100 people long waiting to get into the booth. As each session took four photos and 5 minutes, it took a while for everyone to get their turn. Fortunately, our high specification 800 print capacity photo printer just didn't stop and was churning … Continue reading
