Happy & wed, Mr & Mrs Beales (right)
Last Saturday night we had the pleasure of zipping the pastel VW photo booth and a menagerie of fancy dress over to the wedding party of Tom & Charlotte Beales at St Pauls in Yelverton.
The whole do had a brilliant vibe of the 1950’s about it. The party was set in the church hall – there were big juicy sponges laden
with jam and cream sat on vintage plates. There were large white paper lanterns hanging from the rafters, wooden
floorboards and a certain jubilee street party atmosphere going on. Instead of the usual wedding guest book, a brown vintage case was used for carrying personal messages and photo strips. I love Miss Marple and kept expecting my favourite little old super
sleuth to leap out of the privot hedges wagging her knitting needle accusingly at me! In a sentence, it was bliss really.
We’d been asked to set up the photo booth in the snuggly games room which made things very lovely and cosy – with the
feather boas, tinsels and cowboy hats dotted about the place, the room had the feel of an enticing grotto.
From the moment the booth went on till the moment it went off the flashes kept going all night – (in more ways than one in
a particular case…’oops’!)
Now, the problem with the photo booth, we find, is that it can be rather distracting at times – last night proved the point
nicely when the bridesmaids almost missed the bride & groom’s first dance because they were busy in the booth. Later on,
the moment the band played their last note they were swinging into the booth like grease lightning unaware they were being
shouted for a curtain call from their audience. We’re always causing trouble it seems!
On a final note, we were really impressed with the creative poses that went on in the booth! A year of pilates and some
strong relaxants would not have permitted my legs to arrange themselves in some of the positions we witnessed last night!
They must have been olympic gymnasts or acutely double jointed – if you’ve got it flaunt it, ladies!!
Thank you so much to Tom & Charlotte for booking us for your brilliant wedding party – it was lovely to meet you both! if
you need a photo booth in Hong Kong we’ll be over like a shot!! 🙂 Caz & Laurence x
