Frequently Asked Questions
Below are some of the most frequently asked questions we receive. Hopefully if you have a question, it’s answered here – but if it isn’t just ask via the form at the bottom of the page!
What Is Marryoke?
Marryoke allows the photo booth to become a karaoke pod, with recording facilities.See our dedicated page here
What is Green Screen?
Green Screen allows you & your guests to choose and add a background image to your pictures taken in our photo booth. See our dedicated page here.
Do we get instant prints?
Yes! It takes the photo booth around 20 seconds from the capture until your photo is printed, trimmed to size and ejected. The photo is touch-dry immediately.
How many people can the booth accommodate?
Our standard photo booth can hold 1-6 people comfortably. It’s intimate enough for couples, and spacious enough for group shots. As it doesn’t contain seating, it’s also wheelchair-friendly – although we’ll have to move the camera a fraction, which doesn’t take long.
How long does it take you to set up?
Approximately 60 minutes to build the photo booth, connect all electricals, and run some diagnostic tests. We’ll always be on-site at least 90 minutes prior to the hire start to ensure it’s ready for you. We always prefer to be early and ready with time to spare!
How many photos can we take?
Unlimited! There are no restrictions on how many times your guests use the photo booth and 1 print is produced each time – unless you upgrade to our unlimited prints add-on. We can usually get around 30 shoots per hour (this can vary with video recording and marryoke packages). We love a busy booth so we’ll always be on hand looking after your guests and getting as many people in and out as we possibly can!
How much room do you need?
The photo booth is approx 2.3m long, 1.5m wide and 2m high, so at the very least we need a space big enough to accommodate this. We also have tables holding the props, your guestbook and other items so we need to fit these in as well. Ideally a space of 3m x 3m ensures enough room although we’ve always managed to find a way to fit everything in – even in smaller venues.
Can we hire your photo booth for our child's party?
Yes! as long as the majority are over 13. The booth isn’t suitable for small children unless they’re with an adult. This is due to the position of the camera. Please note our usual prices apply.
What is "Idle Time"
Idle Time is any time the booth is set up at your venue but not in use. For example if you needed us to be set-up by 2pm but didn’t want the photo booth to be in operation until 8pm, we may, at our discretion, charge for 6 hours of Idle Time. We don’t usually charge idle time, but will advise you beforehand if it’s applicable.
What happens if something goes wrong?
We’ll try our very best to fix it! Being quite technically-minded we can troubleshoot most software/electrical problems in just a couple of minutes. If the booth is out of action for more than a few minutes we’ll extend your hire time. If we can’t get it working at all, we’ll refund you in full. To date, we’ve not had a single problem at an event that wasn’t fixed in a matter of seconds.
We've had a cheaper quote - can you beat it?
Probably not! We’re not the cheapest nor the most expensive, in fact we’re priced in line with most of our real competitors and offer many more bundled features. We’d advise you to be very careful booking anyone considerably cheaper, and make absolutely sure you know what you’re getting for your money – is it a photo booth or just a camera on a tripod, and will you be getting more than half a dozen props?
Your T&C are quite long - why is that?
They are and there’s a lot of jargon in there for legal reasons (mostly our insurance). To date, we’ve not had any issue with anyone who has booked, nor have they had issue with us! We provide a fun & friendly service at your event, and enjoy having fun with you & your guests!
