Q My hubby-to-be and I want to wow our guests with a photo booth. What should we ask before booking?
A Kayleigh and Helen Burgess says: Having a photo booth at your wedding will provide lots of fun and laughter for your guests, and it's a superb way to record happy memories. Here are some questions you should ask before booking a supplier:

What type of photo booth do you offer? Think about what is going to fit into your venue, and tie in with your theme and budget. Also consider how many people you want to accommodate in a photo at any one time.

Do you provide attendants? The answer to this question should be yes. You don't want to worry about having to keep things in order and ensuring the guest book is updated etc.

Do you provide props, and if so, can themed props be provided? The quality of props can vary, so make sure you ask to see a sample before booking.

Can our photos be personalised with wording and borders? You might want to include Mr & Mrs and the date of your wedding or incorporate a theme or particular colour into the design.

What is included in the packages? Check if mileage needs to be added on top of the package price. Keep in mind that you need to make sure everything is set up before your guests arrive, and some companies will charge you for the time that the photo booth is sitting idle e.g. whilst speeches are made, so take this into consideration before committing.
