A busy weekend and finally some help

We do get about at the weekends. Last Friday we found ourselves almost out in the middle of nowhere at the Barn at Bury Court in Bentley in Surrey for Kate and Toby’s wedding reception.
Here is the link to Bury Court if you would like to take a look:

And here are the newly weds, Kate & Toby.

On the same evening Kath & Robs’ celebrations took place at The Englemere in Ascot where Stephen and Terri set up the Photobooth.

On to Saturday, where again we had two Photobooths on the same evening. One at the Moor Park mansion in Northwood for Julia & Michael’s wedding reception. You have to see Moor Park to believe it.

Here are Julia & Michael. There they were about to use the Photobooth themselves minding their own business and look who burst in on the act. Half of their guests! They waited until Julia had hit the button and then rushed through the back of the booth. It was hilarious…

What does a Scotsman wear under his kilt? We almost found out with this shot.

Ten minutes later a few of the chaps couldn’t manage to stay upright for the duration of the shots. It was a real giggle for us watching the fun and nobody was hurt. A few bruised egos maybe? Not really.

When they finally managed to get the Photobooth to themselves…

If you ring or make an enquiry on Mondays now you will more likely to chat to Teresa than me. I finally have some part time help so that the blogging and other admin stuff can be quite a lot quicker. She has been helping with the Photobooths for a year now and we have known one another many, many years.

 

The lull before the storm…

We had a fab evening at Leez Priory near Chelmsford with Dora and Stephen on Saturday. What a stunning venue!
Here is the link if you are looking for something different.

Here is a shot I took of one of the towers in the twilight while we were waiting for things to start.

Here are Dora & Stephen. Dora is Greek and Stephen is half Italian and half English so they have an interesting mixture of languages in the Guestbook!

They chose album pages that are new for us. Black pages with silver writing. It was something we had to test for a while to make sure that the silver ink dries quickly enough. Here are a few examples. Very difficult to photograph and of course the silver won’t show up in a photograph.

Next weekend we have four bookings and the Bank Holiday weekend following starts for us in Manchester on Thursday night and goes right through the weekend.

Well it’s official!

Our guests have more fun with one of our Photobooths than any other…
Well. That is what I was told when a couple booked their Photobooth with us last week. The bride had a couple of quotes and put them in front of the groom to choose.
His comment went something like this before booking. “The Rentabooth guests look, from the photos on the blog and website, as though they are having far more fun than the others…”
We, of course, have to agree. Where is that big smiley icon when I want one?
Hope you have had a great Easter. We had a relatively quiet weekend in comparison to previous weeks with a couple of booths but it is very much like the lull before the storm. We have loads coming up in May.
Nickie & KJ were at Clearwell Castle down in Gloucestershire at the beginning of the weekend. If you are not familiar with the venue and you are looking for something stunningly different, check out their website.

Nickie & KJs was a military affair and you know what that means where a Photobooth is concerned/ Very fit guys that can’t wait to strip off! Here are the bride and groom.

Onto The Grange in Northwood and Chrissie and Curtis’s wedding. Very local for us and by far the biggest Guestbook and the busiest we have ever been for a three hour Photobooth.
Here are the Chrissie and Curtis.

Here they are. Anita & Darren trying Strictly Come Dancing pose in the booth…

Onto Greenwich at an old haunt of ours going back to Christmas at the Royal Naval College. It is a fab venue and Kathryn and Ian’s wedding took place. Here they are.

A few months ago we covered Viv and Matt’s wedding up in the Midlands. Just to prove that clients come back to us time and again here is Viv, on the left, this time as a bridesmaid.

After that shock onto Jaime’s Batmitzvah. Here is Tracy (Mum), Jaime and sister, Emma. Stephen and Terri covered the Photobooth as I was shooting the party in the old fashioned way. Photos to come from that side of the party next week.
