FUN FORTIETH BIRTHDAY PARTY PHOTO BOOTH HIRE IN NORTH LONDON

People really like to celebrate their landmark birthdays – whether they’re turning 16, 21 or 80 years old! Hiring a photo booth is a great way to make the birthday party go with a swing and get fantastic photo souvenirs of you and your guests enjoying themselves. Early May saw us at another 40th birthday party in north London. As we pulled up outside a private house we could hear the party already rocking away.

We were greeted by the birthday girl and ushered into the front room. Our sleek photo booth fitted neatly into the corner and we spread our props out over a table. As soon as we were ready to go we had an enthusiastic queue of happy party guests waiting to get into the booth. There was much laughing, posing and squeezing into the photo booth, with people striking crazy poses and getting propped up to the max.

Seeing how keen all the guests were to strut their stuff in front of the booth camera, we started a pose off, encouraging the guests to better the poses from the previous set of images with their own creative ideas! The party guests were from all over Europe – a creative bunch of film makers, architects, furniture makers, makeup artist, models and writers – and they rose to our pose off challenge in style. We had a blast! Pop over to the Facebook gallery to see how they got on: Facebook

We encouraged all the guests to stick their second prints in the guestbook and write a message, as this meant that the birthday girl had a wonderful souvenir of her special event. The birthday girl sent me a message saying she had dipped into the guestbook several times since the party and loved it, with the messages and crazy pictures of all her friends bringing back happy memories of her birthday celebrations.

We have already been promised photo booth bookings from two of the guests at the party, as they loved the Bubble Booths experience so much. We can’t wait as they were a great crowd and we look forward to meeting them all again soon and having more photo booth fun with them!

Thanks to Alex for inviting us to her 40th Birthday celebration we had a great time and so did her friends ☺

A Ding-Dong Photo Booth Wedding Fayre at Fanhams Hall Hotel, Ware, Hertfordshire.

It was great to be back in the friendly surroundings of the wonderful Fanhams Hall Hotel in Ware, Hertfordshire taking part in the Fanhams Wedding Fayre. Set in extensive and beautifully maintained grounds, this stunning Jacobean manor, which has been stylishly converted into an appealing hotel, makes a wonderful setting for a wedding. We can testify to that ourselves as Bubble Booths has taken part in weddings there – always thoroughly enjoyable events!

For the Wedding Fayre, we had our sleek black photo booth set up and soon saw a steady stream of prospective brides and grooms coming to test our booth out and have their photos taken. We had squeals of delight and much laughter from behind the curtain as the engaged couples struck poses for the camera, aided, of course, by our extensive prop box and much happy giggling when they saw the photos. Every happy couple got our top-quality prints to take away so that they could show them off to family and friends.

Some couples hadn’t come across entertainment photo booths before and weren’t sure whether it was something they’d want on their special wedding day. Once they’d had a go, however, they loved the idea. ‘Once tried, always hooked and have to book!’ became our motto for the day. We got lots of favourable feedback on how nice the booth looks, our friendly booth butlers, the quality of our photographic prints and guest books and the range of our props. “Your prop selection is a cut above the rest,” one visitor told us, which was great to hear as it’s part of our offering which we pride ourselves on.

It was a fruitful day for us as we took several firm bookings and had loads of provisional bookings too. An event like a wedding fair is a great way for prospective brides and grooms to see what’s out there in the marketplace to make their special day truly memorable. The great thing about having a photo booth at a wedding is that not only does it offer a great, fun piece of entertainment for everyone on the day but you also got a wonderful collection of prints of people laughing and enjoying themselves – a wonderful collection of memories of that very special day.
Do come and see us at the next wedding fair – we’d love to show you how our photo booth works and what fun it is.

Photo Booth Charity shoot for Compassionate Eye Foundation -helping to make a difference in the world.

When Fiona Watson Productions  –   a photographic producer, casting agent, stylist and art director that works closely with the Compassionate Eye Foundation –  asked if Bubble Booths would be prepared to help her on a shoot for The Compassionate Eye Foundation  we jumped at the chance. The Compassionate Eye Foundation is a creative community wanting to make a difference by donating their creative talents producing images that sell through Getty Images and using the proceeds to help people in Guatemala, Sierra Leone, Ethiopia, Kenya, Cambodia, Zambia, and South Africa and we very much admire what they do.

Fiona, an experienced art director, thought that a photo booth-themed shoot would be a very topical idea. She had already used our photo booth for a Christmas promotion for Street Cast Models in 2011,  so she knew the fun you could have in a photo booth.  Having set the booth up to be amazing quality with professional cameras, professional printers and superior studio flash lighting we knew that the image quality would easily pass the very strict quality control of Getty Images imaging department.

The idea of the day’s shoot with Fiona was to produce as many images as we could along selected themes, get these pictures into the Getty Images photo library so that they could make loads of money for the Compassionate Eye charity helping people around the world. With this important cause, we had a mission to be as efficient and productive as possible.

Thanks to lots of pre-shoot organisation, the day went without a hitch, Fiona’s models turned up promptly,  from mums with new-born babies to a bride and groom dressed in full wedding gown and suit. Professional props, wardrobe and full make-up was provided throughout the day, so everyone looked great. The Bubble Booths easy-to-use photo booth came into its own as a stream of models passed through it. The good news is that the Compassionate Eye Foundation shoot with Bubble Booths had over 100 images accepted by Getty Images from the photo booth shoot!  This is great news and we’re really excited to see how much money these photo booth images will generate for  Compassionate Eye Foundation’s good causes around the world.

Bubble Booths photo booth hire is available to hire for weddings, birthdays, parties, Christmas socials, work parties, anniversaries, bar mitzvahs, bat mitzvahs, and school balls.

Golden Wedding Anniversary Photo booth hire in Waltham Cross Hertfordshire. 50th Wedding Anniversary.

It was a real pleasure to be asked to attend a very special fiftieth wedding anniversary in Waltham Cross Hertfordshire with our top-quality photo booth. We are usually asked to attend wedding receptions, when couples are beginning their matrimonial journey together, so it was lovely for Bubble Booths photo booth hire to take part in a Golden Wedding anniversary celebration.

A spectacular Golden Wedding Anniversary party had been organised by the lovely couple’s family. Dinner, music, entertainment and dancing with a photo booth to capture it all; what more could you ask for? As soon as we arrived, we set up our photo booth in a beautifully-decorated marquee on the front lawn.  We were booked to be a surprise for the party guests and it was indeed a great surprise. When our photo booth was revealed, there were  squeals of delight from the youngsters and pleased laughter from the older generations.

The stage was set for a great celebration. On stage,  “T-Jays” performed in great style, playing classic, mellow numbers. Guests arrived dressed to party and were ushered towards our photo booth, where they donned hats, glasses and feather boas and went for great photo booth poses. Our guest book was a real success and filled up with amazing images throughout the night. Family, good friends, young and old left lovely messages and great images to remember the occasion by. The quality of our prints was complimented on throughout the night. We had several approaches from people interested in booking us for future events, music to our ears indeed!

We had a couple of very sweet little helpers at the beginning of the evening – the daughters of No.1  Son Paul, and the granddaughters of the special Golden Wedding anniversary couple.  They helped everyone get propped up and ready to strike a pose. They also helped with the guest book, making sure everyone was putting in their pictures and writing messages.  A big thanks to them for all their help.

Everyone was having such fun using our photo booth, that we were invited to extend our booth hire and so stayed on for another couple of hours into the early hours.

Thanks again to the Newland family for inviting us to their special anniversary party and for making us feel part of the family for the night. It was a very special night in Waltham Cross and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

Max’s Bar Mitzvah photo Booth hire in Elstree. Hertfordshire.

The great thing about having a photo booth company is that you get to go to some very special occasions. Bar Mitzvahs, of course, are one of these special occasions, a wonderful time to bring together family and friends and all the generations to celebrate a boy moving into manhood. From experience, we know that Bubble Booths are a great addition to a Bar Mitzvah, as it’s lovely for the guests to have souvenir photos of such a special occasion. Max’s Bar Mitzvah, held in a marquee in the garden  at his family home in the leafy suburbs of Elstree in Hertfordshire was a case in point.

The family had gone to town for this special celebration. Lee from Proactive 4 parties  had been brought in to run the show and had done a great event job.  The marquee was decked out with flashing lights and stonking disco set- up with a fantastic motivational DJ soon got everyone moving and grooving to the sounds, while  bar flarers and generous amounts of finger food added to the party atmosphere.

Our photo booth was a hit from the start with old family friends jumping in as soon as we turned it on!  Max’s mates knew how to work our booth, throwing some cool poses and having a great laugh with the props too. Our abundant selection of props -  hats, wigs, over-the-top glasses and feather boas -  went down a storm as usual with adults and kids alike.  Our special offer of unlimited prints during the party is always a hit as it enables party guests to visit the photo booth as many times as they like and take superb quality prints away with them.

Christmas Party Fun in Vauxhall, Photo Booth Hire London

On the 15th of December 2011,  Bubble Booths had the pleasure of being the photo booth attraction at  the Rudolf Place offices’ Christmas party in Miles Street, Vauxhall, SW8, South London.

The party was organised for all the offices in the complex at Rudolfs Place by Nick Perkins and Toni Walmsley of NAP 3. The idea was to get everybody in the offices together to finally put names to faces and to get to know each other.

Those guys at NAP3 really know how to throw a party! NAP3’s office was set up with football tables and karaoke machines at the ready, decorated with Christmas lights and decorations while tables were piled high with party food and lots of booze ready to receive the guests. Bubble Booths were there as a prime party attraction.

The party was attended by a great mixed crowd of people working in the Rudolfs Place complex: interior designers, recruitment agents, web designers, computer system specialists, catering equipment specialists, furniture designers, and air conditioning fitters. It was a great mix of people, some of whom knew each other by  sight but hadn’t had a chance to talk and get to know each other. The great thing about our photo booths is that they very quickly bring any barriers down, as people relax and have a giggle. Our outgoing Bubble Booths butlers are great at getting people to don some silly props and have a go and much fun was had. You could hear shouts of laughter coming from that end of the room. People loved the photo booth experience, from the sleek look of our booth to the high-quality prints, photographic proof that much fun had been had!

The History of the Photo Booth. What year was the photo booth invented?

The story of the automatic photo booth dates back to the early twentieth century and is a fine example of human ingenuity. Photography had developed through the nineteenth century with a series of innovative discoveries and inventions, including Daguerre’s daguerreotype in 1839, Fox Talbot’s negative to positive process in 1841and George Eastman’s  flexible roll film in 1889. The quest for a machine which would automatically take photographs was another stage in this journey.

Anatol Josepho is the man given credit for inventing the first automatic photo booth when he patented  the Photomaton, an automatic photograph machine, in 1925 in America. Originally from Siberia, Josepho had travelled and worked as a photographer in many countries and had become fascinated by the idea of inventing a machine which could take photographs automatically. He immigrated to the United States in order to pursue his dream and set about borrowing substantial amounts of money in order to work on his vision, with the Photomaton – an automatic photo booth –the result of his labours. Josepho’s Photomaton Studio on Broadway was a huge popular success, with people queuing up in order to have their picture taken by this novel photographic invention, with each session costing 25 cents for a strip of eight photos. Such was the Photomaton’s success that Josepho sold the Photomaton booth and the American rights for one million dollars to a group of American businessmen in1927. Automatic photo booths became widely available, found in stores, post offices and stations, often used to provide a cheap sort of photographic identification.

Today’s digital photo entertainment booths, portable enough to be taken into venues from hotels to private homes, are an ingenious reworking of the idea of a photo booth, putting the emphasis firmly on entertainment. At Bubble Booths we pride ourselves on our sleek-looking photo entertainment booth, with its choice of background materials, and our great prop box, filled with hats, masks, sun-glasses, feather boas and other props to make dressing up for the photo booth fun. Thanks to digital photographic technology our customers can enjoy the fun of popping into the booth for a photographic session and then having unlimited high-quality prints printed out promptly during the booth hire period. We like to think that Anatol Josepho, the innovative inventor of the photo boot, would have loved to see this new take on his Photomaton.

Bubble Booths photo booth hire was delighted to be a sponsor of the St Albans Chamber of Commerce Ball 2011 at Sopwell House Hotel a first-class venue based in the historic city of St Albans Hertfordshire. This ball is a big event for the St Albans Chamber of Commerce and there were around 400 happy partygoers. Set in magnificent grounds, Sopwell House Hotel was once the country home of Lord Mountbatten and now boasts a spa and country club. It’s the perfect venue for balls, weddings, parties and Bar Matzvahs, so we were thrilled to be able to set up our entertainment photo booth hire there. Bubble Booths loved working at Sopwell House Hotel, so do please get in touch if you are holding an event there.

The ballroom was beautifully decorated for the St Albans Chamber of Commerce Ball and after a delicious meal, the guests took to the dance floor. Music was provided by The Slaves who rocked the house through out the ball and the St Albans Chamber members danced the night away!

Bubble Booths photo booth was strategically placed at the entrance to the ballroom giving it a prominent position throughout the event. The Chamber of Commerce members and their guests lost no time jumping in and out of the booth making the best of the wide selection of props (glasses, wigs, hats, and masks) in the prop box. The booth was filled with people having their photographs taken from start to finish. It was great seeing people pass their quality photo booth prints around, showing them off and comparing them. There was much laughter, with many guests raiding the prop box and coming back to see if they could better their friends’ crazy poses. Our booth attendants entered into the party spirit, suggesting hilarious prop combination’s to the guest. We had a lot of compliments on the sleek look of our photo booth and several enquiries about how to book for future parties, so it was a great night for Bubble Booths.
