Horror stories Part 2

Hi all.

We were covering Vicky and Pete’s wedding at the Barn at Bury Court on the 19th June and we were chatting to the band that were having fun with the Photo Booth. We bump into them on a regular basis at different weddings and the Barn at Bury Court near Farnham is one of our favorite venues.

The previous week they were playing at a couple’s wedding and there was a competitor Photo Booth. Half way through the evening five of the wedding guests went into the booth and the whole thing collapsed! It literally fell apart. The camera was fixed onto the booth with a piece of wood and was unrepairable and, of course, like so many booth companies out there now, they had no spare.

 

Horror stories Part 1

Good morning!

Now that there are so many Photo Booth companies out there being run by so many part time businesses that are just supplementing their income at the weekends, the bad stuff is starting to happen.

On Saturday I had a phone call just after lunch from a bridegroom who sounded quite upset.

He had booked a competitor Photo Booth company and he had a booked them because they were pretty cheap. On the day of his wedding they called to tell him that they couldn’t get their printer to work and they would not be going to his wedding!

Seriously?!

Didn’t they have a spare? I’m sorry but running a business where you are attending somebody’s wedding is a once in  lifetime event. If a Photo booth rental company carries no backup equipment it is criminally irresponsible.

Rentabooth has now been running for over seven years with over 2000 events completed and we always carry backup equipment. We carry two of everything. Crazy things have happened to us in the past but because we always carry spares we are able to get up and running again in a few minutes. We carry two computers, two printers, two cameras and numerous spare cables. Many times we have closed a camera case and squished a USB cable but we have always been able to get up and going again fast.

Knowing how much weddings cost nowadays why would you risk a horror story like it by taking a risk by booking a part time Photo Booth business, that has no track record and doesn’t carry spare equipment?

Sadly we were fully booked last Saturday and we were unable to help the couple and I wonder if anybody else was able to help them.

Be warned!
