Having launched our Vintage photobooth onto the wedding fair circuit in Spring 2013 and having seen the popularity of them soar Mr and Mrs Angelic were discussing different themes for their next booth when, Mrs Angelic joked about buying a vintage caravan to turn into a caravan photobooth. That was on a cold Wednesday in March 2014 and the following Tuesday saw us both on the way down to Swansea to pick up our “new” 40 year old caravan.
That was the start of a learning journey like no other for Mr Angelic as he stripped out all the inner workings of the caravan – right down to the outer walls and the chassis. He learnt how to respray, to lay tongue-and-groove laminate onto a chassis, to sew curtains, to refit windows plus much, much more.
He spent a summer converting our Rambler ‘van into a gorgeous caravan photobooth which can compliment any vintage style event – from barn conversions to tipi wedding venues with a range of venues in between and Ellie (as she was named) appeared at her first wedding fair nestling beside the gorgeous giant hat tipis provided by Sami Tipi in September 2014.
Many people who use both the caravan photobooth and the vintage booths are amazed that the prints are almost instant and that the technology is nicely hidden away within the theming of the booths, they are impressed by the attentiveness of the attendant who stays with the booth throughout and love the fact that we can help incorporate the theming of their wedding into the props that we provide and the bespoke layout and design of the prints. The fact that all the photos can then be downloaded for free from our online galleries is yet another bonus for them and we often see them being shared on Facebook via mutual friends.
Both styles of booth have been booked across the country from as far north as Liverpool to as far south as Cornwall although we have now had to restrict Ellie’s journeys to a couple of hours in length now as she is an old gal you know! We can provide additional extras such as Guestbooks and vintage-style USB memory sticks and are always happy to discuss how we can enhance your day.
And yes – we are still discussing ideas for new photobooths with two more already making their way off the drawing board including a booth that “cannot be named”. Watch this space and follow us via Facebook and Twitter to see what comes into existence in 2017.
