In our eyes weddings and parties are the perfect occasion to bring friends and family together, so where better place to get photos of everyone than in our photo booth of course!
With our top of the range DSLR Camera, Touch screen computer and Instant printer it means that not only do all your friends and family get to keep the photos but as the 2nd print directly into the Guest book the party host or Bride & Groom get to keep a fantastic collection of memories from the day as well. (We can also record short videos, and put all of the photos & videos on to a CD after the event)

Tell us a little about yourself?
I’m 29 years old and have been running You Beauty! Photo booths for 2 years. Prior to setting up the photo booth I was working in the events industry for 4 years. Prior to this I spent a year in Australia coaching and teaching sport. Sport, specifically golf, is my passion and this was why I studied Sports Science with Management at Lougborough University. When I’m not attending Weddings and Parties with the photo booth you will generally find me on the golf course with my friends or partaking in some form of physical activity.
How would you describe your wedding style and what makes you unique?
Fun, professional, engaging and relatively relaxed. Photo booths aren’t supposed to be taken too seriously after all.
How would you describe your working style?
Fun but professional. I want people to enjoy the photo booth, so I feel it’s good to be relaxed with people at the party to try and entice as many people as possible to get their photos taken. Sometimes people can be a bit stand offish before entering the booth, however once they get inside and the curtain goes back usually they come out laughing and smiling which is what we like to see! ☺
Do you shoot digitally or with film? Or both?
What type of equipment do you use?
Canon DSLR Camera, Samsung Touch screen Monitor, Mitsubishi High Speed Printer
Do you shoot in colour and black and white?
What can you offer couples?
A lot of fun at their weddings as well as fantastic guest books which act as truly memorable keepsakes long after their big day.
How long after the wedding will the couple receive their photo booth photo?
Immediately. Prints on the day. Digital copies within one week of the event.
How far in advance should couples book you?
Roughly 4 months, however this varies. Generally the earlier the better to make sure we don’t get booked. What information do you need from the couple before the wedding day? Date of Wedding, Venue, Times they would like the photo booth based on 3 or 4 hour hire, Contact on the day.
What are you favourite trends?
Mmmmm is it biased to say photo booths?!! I do still genuinely think they are a fantastic addition to a wedding offering both a great bit of entertainment on the evening as well as providing fantastic memories long after the big day.
Can you upload the photos you take straight onto social media?
Yes if required.
