As we all know, over the last few years the photo booth has become a very popular addition to weddings. If you are still deciding whether having a wedding photo booth is a good idea, I would like to give you a few reasons why I think they’re an absolute must.

Firstly, and Most Importantly… It’s FUN!

Everyone just loves to be a bit silly, and a wedding photo booth gives guests a chance to show their fun side without being judged. Having a lot of props lets the creativity go crazy, producing great memories, so it’s not only great fun on the day; people will talk about it for weeks after your wedding. Your wedding day will just fly by, and a photo booth will make it last just that little bit longer.

A Gift to Your Guests

It’s almost impossible for your wedding photographer to take photos of all your guests, so to ensure you have a photo of everyone, a photo booth is a great solution. The pictures will also be a great memento for your guests to keep.


Not everyone was born to dance, so having a wedding photo booth should help to keep all your guests entertained. No matter what their age, they will love it!

A Great Ice-Breaker / Social Point

Obviously a photo booth can only fit a few people at a time, so there will be times when your guests will have to queue for a few minutes before their turn. This creates a great opportunity for them to chat and socialise. In most cases your guests will visit the photo booth several times, so while they queue they can share their experiences and give each other ideas for the next photo.

It Makes Your Wedding Original

Every wedding is different, and every photo booth is different. When you book yours it will come with many props, but to ensure you get the most out of it, bring some of your own. Personalise your booth; anything can be a prop. It’s also a good idea to have the photo booth near the bar — guests will be thirsty while waiting for their turn.

Photo Booth Props

Little things make all the difference, so share your thoughts with the wedding photo booth company and ask for advice. Customise your backdrop to match your wedding theme, and make it unique by doing it yourself; your guests will appreciate your effort!

I hope those points have convinced you to book a photo booth for your wedding day. Your guests will absolutely love it!
