Another great review!

Posted by Richard Goulden | Uncategorised | Friday 25 January 2019 2:53 pm

Rentabooth get some amazing reviews and this one from Hollie & Jack is lovely.

We covered their wedding in Wallington Surrey a week before Christmas. Take a look.

I just wanted to send you a HUGE thank you for all your hard work at the wedding. It was honestly probably the best thing I’ve booked and my favourite momento from the day!

Everyone has said how wonderful it was and how it was the best photo booth they’ve seen (especially with all the extra photos!).

I was hoping that I could book you again in September!

Throwing a joint birthday party for my mum and husband it’s on the 20th September.

Fingers crossed you’re free!

Magic mirrors and open booths versus closed booths

Posted by Richard Goulden | Uncategorised | Thursday 3 January 2019 8:44 pm

Happy New Year every one!

The trend for the Magic Mirror and open photo booths just don’t hit the spot for us or most of our clients and here is why.

When your guests enter a closed photo booth there is something totally different about being in a private space. Nobody is watching you and your guests feel far less inhibited than if they were performing in front of all of the other guests at the party. There is nothing between you and the camera lens. Nobody is actually pointing a camera at you and saying, “smile!” That always was the essence of the photo booth when it was first invented over 90 years ago.

Some people do go over the top and occasionally, there is a bit of frantic censoring the following Monday after a particularly boozy Christmas party but it’s always good natured stuff.

Yet another difference that we find our clients love and another factor to consider when choosing your photo booth.

LGBT community weddings – we love them!

Posted by Richard Goulden | Uncategorised | Thursday 1 November 2018 3:44 pm

There is one type of wedding or party that we love as they are so much fun. Gay weddings and civil partnerships! And we don’t do enough of them!

We have been covering them for years and the first that we did, way back in 2008, set the scene for all the rest. The wedding party dressed up as the Village People outfits and karaoked the YMCA. It was hilarious and so much fun.

Last Saturday night we covered Lindsay & Cassy’s wedding party in Berkshire.

They were married in Las Vegas. The party had a Las Vegas theme as did the reception and photo booth photos. There was also a roulette wheel and blackjack table.

We love weddings from the LGBT community! Give us a call if you have one coming up! 01895 468858.

Celebrities and Rentabooth over the years

Posted by Richard Goulden | Uncategorised | Saturday 6 October 2018 11:54 am

Leona LewisWe get asked this on a regular basis and seeing Gabby Allen (Love Island and Big Brother) at The Gypsy Shrine Promo party in London a couple of nights it started me thinking who has been in our photo booths over the years.

It’s a shame but a few of the parties that we covered specifically for celebrities carried NDAs (Non disclosure agreements) and we are not allowed to use the photos.

Most of them have been at family parties, weddings etc.

Pixie Lott was one of the first who was at a friend’s or family wedding. Jarvis Cocker turned up to a fancy dress party dressed as a convict, if I remember. Chris Patten (Ex governor of Hong Kong and Tory minister) was in a big group in the booth at a wedding in Bath a while back. Limahl was a guest and a singer at a wedding in London last year. If you of a certain age, Mandy from Eastenders (Nicola Stapleton) made it into the booth in year one for Rentabooth. She was in Eastenders in the 90s and Google has just told me that she came back in 2012.

Probably the biggest celebrity (to me) has to be Leona Lewis. We supplied a photo booth to one of her pet projects at a farm in Essex a few years back where she was singing with Matt Cardle. She really is very, very good live.

These are just those I remember and I will revisit this as others come to mind.

A fabulous thank you card

Posted by Richard Goulden | Uncategorised | Tuesday 11 September 2018 3:54 pm

We had a lovely thank you card through the post this morning and had to share it with you. It is a very, very nice review of the service that we offer and mentions nothing about multiple prints, props, backup equipment, price or anything like. You can read it from the card or below where I have typed it into text.

Dear Richard. We just wanted to say a huge thank you for your conduct and professionalism in regard to the photo booth we hired from you.

Although photo booths are more of an expectation now, rather than a unique part of a wedding, your service was hands down the best we have ever experienced. Or could have hoped to receive.

From start to finish you were superb and all our guests complimented your work. You guided us through every phase and as a result we now have photos to cherish forever.

The photo album you and Mon made was amazing and we absolutely love it! I will most definitely be sending people your way in the future and I don’t reckon there is a better photo booth service around!

Hats and props.

Posted by Richard Goulden | Uncategorised | Tuesday 4 September 2018 7:43 pm

Hats and props. We love them! Whenever we find new hats, wigs and glasses we always add them to our prop box collection to give the guests of our clients as big a choice as possible. We travel all over England and there is nothing better than finding a new place to find very colourful hats etc. I’ve posted a couple of our latest examples. Please note. The multi coloured wig is a Mohican worn sideways!

Rentabooth has won another award!

Paying in instalments for our services

Posted by Richard Goulden | Uncategorised | Friday 6 July 2018 5:49 pm

A few times over the years we have had clients ask if they can pay for our services in instalments and the answer has always been yes.

We require a £150 retainer when you make your booking and the balance can be paid in any way that you like. Most set up a regular payment direct into our bank account so that the balance is paid off just before your event.

There is no fee to pay by doing things this way unless you choose to pay by credit card each month and then there is a modest charge to cover the payment that we make to the credit card company.

Strips are now cheaper…

Posted by Richard Goulden | Uncategorised | Friday 15 June 2018 2:03 pm

Almost all of our clients go for the 6″ x 4″ option when it comes to the size of prints and rarely go for the classic “photo booth” strip prints. I’m not sure why but there is a reason I’m telling you this. Price! We have introduced a £20 price reduction on our quotes because the smaller prints cost us less in both print cost and sticky costs. (The special tape machine that puts double sided sticky on the back of the prints). When you email for a quote please request that we quote for strip prints. Examples in the attached photo.

We have a new 5* Review!

Posted by Richard Goulden | Uncategorised | Sunday 20 May 2018 12:07 pm

We covered Brian & Jonathan’s wedding last weekend and created the biggest book we have made this year. The guests didn’t stop using the booth all night!

Here is the review that Brian left on Google for us a couple of days later.

The Team here are excellent. They are incredibly helpful and helped make our wedding day a treat. At the end of the night they handed over our personalized album with all of the hand written notes and photos taken. All of our guests got individual photos as well as a keep sake. The booth was full all night! Highly recommend Rentabooth to anyone looking for a photo booth for your event.
