A Wedding Photobooth Hire at Grinkle Park Hotel.
This week, we took the photobooth down to the North York Moors to povide some fun at Jodie & Pauls’ wedding at this wonderful venue.
The great Grinkle Park Estate belonged for centuries to the Conyers-Middleton family and its descendants. The ‘seat’ of Grinkle was then an old Mansion House, until the arrival of one of the great Industrialists of the Victorian era, Sir Charles Mark Palmer, whose influence on the area was enormous.
Charles Mark Palmer 1822-1907 was an example of industrial genius founding enterprises such as the transportation of coal and coke, the mining of iron stone, the manufacture of iron and steel. He was also the world’s largest ship builder of the time.
His motto was ‘Par Sit Fortuna Labor’ – let the success be equal to the labour.
In 1865 Charles Palmer bought the Grinkle Park Estate that was then considered to be in poor condition and not suitable for cultivation. In the following years he also bought up neighbouring lands, improved the cultivation employing many local people, and expanded the Estate to some 3000 acres.
In 1881 the old mansion of Grinkle was demolished and Alfred Waterhouse was commissioned to build a house befitting the wealthy and now titled landowner, Sir Charles Palmer. This is the Grinkle Park we know now, and the arms of the Palmer family can still be found over the entrance porch.
We used the white photo booth and white curtains for this event, and Jodie picked this great three-pose strip for her prints. The guests also enjoyed playing with the insta-style filters to great effect.
We had loads of space to play with in this venue, so we had plenty of props out to play with: 45 hats and masks, 26 pairs of glasses, 8 masquerade masks, 8 Garlands, 36 word props, 10 emojis, 4 moustaches, 1 cigar, 4 headbands and a posing frame
