At Richard & Sarah’s huge Roadford wedding!

Roadford lake wedding

A perfect wedding venue for a perfect wedding !

Yes!! We were so chuffed when Vanessa Stanbury booked us for her son’s wedding because it was our first local booking! How the time has flown from that phone call last November till now – the wedding day of Richard & Sarah Stanbury at Roadford Lake.

We took our cutie VW campervan photo booth the short 2 mile journey which I think is safe to say was a big hit with the crowd. The Stanburys are lovely and have a lot of friends judging by how packed the venue was making for such an amazing atmosphere throughout the night. Most wedding guests enjoyed a go (or three) in the good old booth and who could blame them – its a good giggle and people of all ages enjoy dressing up and adding their silly poses to the guest book – especially with props like our crazy horse’s head which is the best prop ever!!

The venue was perfect from the rig-up to the night itself with huge views across Roadford Lake itself amid tranquil countryside. A big “thank you” Donna and Stephanie for all your help and flexibility – we hope to get the chance to work with you again in the future.

When we first moved to lovely Lifton in West Devon (we came down from the Highlands in 2012 swapping haggis for cream teas in hope of a bit more sun and a lot less midges), what struck us both straight away was the lovely nature and friendliness of all the people we came into contact with. Everybody who visits says so.

Thank you ‘Mother of the Groom’ Vanessa for booking us for the evening! It was fun meeting you and your family/friends. I hope they enjoyed themselves in the booth as much as I did outside of it! ­čÖé

Andi & Dave get married in sunny Tavy!

Introducing Mr & Mrs Aggiss!

Last Friday night, we packed up the shiny black booth and headed to the grand but homely Bedford Hotel, Tavistock for the lovely wedding reception of Andi & Dave Aggiss.

It was a warm day but this didn’t matter for we were armed with our giant fan (the sort that blows air not a person who is extremely fond of us!) – but as it turned out, we didn’t need it as the party room was air conditioned. What a nice surprise that turned out to be!!

We loved our bride Andi from the start! So friendly, fun loving and generous (thank you for feeding us, your prawn wraps were a delight, as were those cupcakes!! Hold me back!)

Congratulations to a lovely couple! With our best wishes for an amazing future!

Saucy fun in Worcester! Fancy dress high jinx caught on camera!

Our host ‘Mrs Browns-Boys’ ┬á(holding Jessie) with her team!

 

If ever there was a night in need of a party to cheer things up, it was rainy old last Thursday night! We took a trip over to Worcester for the Imperial Tobacco party at the prestigious Park Hall near Blakedown where we were booked by Rachel who we met at Gary’s 50th Aloha house party in St Clether.

Fancy dress competition winner, Lu the Whoopie Cushion!

 

We brought along all our props (as well as Jessie, the green inflatable donkey) but the Imperial Tobacco team were ahead of the game with their own fancy dress costumes! There were the bunny girls, the naughty school girls, the ladies footie team, a green Billy Bunter, a pirate of the Caribbean, the onesy posse (very nice! a firm fave of our’s), a giant whoopie cushion and our host ‘Mrs Browns-Boys’ herself!

 

Park Hall

Our lovely venue, Park Hall in Worcester.

 

When we arrived, the Imperial team building meeting was in full swing – so keen to keep a low profile, we had a bit of a tip-toe and a ‘nosey’ round the luxurious Park Hall! We thought we’d arrived on the set of Downton Abbey and half expected Lady Mary to glide down the sweeping staircase. Wow! This was set to be a house party with a difference!

The naughty school girls – uncontrollable! The┬áfirst to run riot in the booth.

 

9 times out of 10, we are asked to start up earlier than has been booked and previously arranged. Our feeling is, if the booth is ready early it might as well be on and enjoyed by the guests. Before we could say “We declare the photo booth open!” – in the blink of an eye, in swooped our mates, the naughty school girls and hot on their heels came the bunny girls. The thing about a photo booth, it’s so much fun, party goers just can’t wait to say “cheese”!

To cut a long story short, it was a crazy lively night! Half way through a curry van parked up and opened up its hatch to serve us hungry souls with a tasty meal of madras, korma, balti or tikka massala with rice, a naan and/or chips. It went down a treat with everyone – including us!

Thanks for booking Yellowbooth, Rachel and all at Imperial Tobacco!

Such a great party and really nice people – your photos tell a few tales!

Last Christmas ‘squish-up’ at the Proud Camden

IMG_0306

Salt Yard Group – one of the many stunning images on the night.

 

Last Sunday night was fun! ┬áThe Yellowbooth-mobile headed off down the M4 to the tourist’s fave, Camden Market in London where we were booked to bring a few LOL moments across to the good folks of the Salt Yard Group’s Christmas party. Famed for their tapas restaurants around London, they were a nice bunch of people who really owned the dance floor! I thought I’d been transported back to Saturday Night Fever – John Travolta obviously had been given the night off!

We loved the venue, ┬áit was an unusual one! Once a 19th century horse hospital, the venue called ‘Proud Camden’ was a large space divided into more intimate settings with┬ásofas and small stages for bands (there was a really good jazz band on when we arrived which was nice ‘building the booth’ music) – perfect for small get-togethers with friends or drinks after work. And it was very busy … and really cobbly – which makes things awkward when unloading our hefty boxes! But, thanks to the help of some really lovely people, we were able to glide through like swans!

We were booked to get the show on the road fairly early, at around 6.30pm, and as we might have expected, visitors to the booth were a little thin on the ground, but it didn’t take long (along with some gentle persuasion from Laurence & myself) before things got really going! Overall, it turned out to be a very lively session with some amazing photo
strips landing in the picture catcher.

The ‘Squish-up’ !

 

What a photogenic bunch the Salt Yarders were! They even managed a respectable ‘squish-up’ of 12 people … good work! Lives were very nearly lost in the process, but we got there in the end!!

At the end of the night….

Oh, nearly forgot to say, that the fun didn’t stop there as at the end of the night we met a traffic warden on the very verge of popping us with a ticket for parking without loading. He told us we would need to prove we were loading and without a hint of irony. There was us standing there with 2 large boxes, 3 huge panel bags and an assortment of bags. Perhaps it wasn’t all that obvious after all. ┬áHe let us off in the end which was very nice of him! They’re not all bad, are they?
