Photo booth services have been around since the 1980s, but over the past year people are hiring a fun version of them for their weddings, party’s and corporate events.
There are different types of photos booths, with the two most popular designs being the enclosed box booth and open-air booth. They have their advantage/disadvantages with different options being suitable for the type of event that it will be used in as well as budget.
The booths are self-operated and only require people to follow the onscreen instructions in order for them to get their picture taken. Booth attendants are usually on hand to assist but mainly to keep an eye on the equipment.
There are a large number of photo booth services that cover the Manchester area. The vendors are known to provide themed booths to create that extra factor when someone wants something special for their event. Due to the competition, the photo booth services in Manchester need to try hard to make their service stand out from the rest. Some of the examples are Photo booths in a taxi, a Photo booth in a VW camper van, and one of the newest arrivals in Manchester is a photo booth in an Indian rickshaw. All of these companies provide the standard green screen option (allows you to add funny scenes in the background of the photos), unlimited photos, logo or personalized message on the prints, video messages, and large group photos (open air photo booths)
Tip from us
If you are struggling to pick a service for your event, let us provide you with our recommendation. One of the biggest fun factors of using a photo booth for guests is the ability to do fun and silly things with large groups of friends and family. The standard box booth as well as other restricted area booths can make this difficult. Another factor to keep in mind is the cost. Some photo booth companies can charge between £350 to £450 for a standard package! For the above reasons we recommend the open-air photo booths. They provide all the advantages of the other booths but allow the flexibility to take shots of large groups of people (some can accommodate upto 15 people). These types of booths are also the most cheapest that you can hire at the moment. You can typically pick up a standard 3-hour package for around £280. If you want more information on this type of booth, have a look at this service www.posebooth.co.uk. We have used them in the past and the guys who run this really know what they are doing.
