About the Booths

How many people can I get in the booth?

Our Booth is one of the most spacious booths available and can accommodate around 8 people at a time.

What photo booths colours/themes do you have?

Our photo booths are predominantly white and feature our Snaptured Logo in discreet colours. We also use a royal red curtain as this adds an air of glamour to the booths.

We also have a vintage themed booth, which is fantastic for vintage themed weddings and events.

We also have a glitzy Christmas booth to capture the highlights (and lowlights) of your Christmas Party.

Branded photo booths can be supplied at an additional cost. Get in touch to find out more.

Technology & Social Media Share


What cameras do your booths use?

Our photo booths use high end professional SLR cameras resulting in sharp quality pictures.

What printers do you use?

We use thermal dye sublimation printers, the same as the photo processing companies use, the best in the business. The prints are fast, touch dry and water proof immediately.

What hardware technology do you use for your booths?

We use the very best of Apple© Technology.

What does the Facebook feature do?

As part of our service we upload a selection of images from your event to our Facebook fan page. You also have the option to have all of your event photos uploaded to Facebook after your event, so that your guests can tag themselves and share the images with their friends. It’s entirely up to you whether you would like us to do this for you, just let us know your preference at the time of booking.

How does the video messaging work?

Each photo booth has a touch screen. Your guests get to choose from 3 options, prints in colour, prints in black & white and video message. The booth is fully automatic and will switch between the two modes instantly so your guests can have their prints and leave you a video message whilst in the photo booth. All movies from the night, in addition to pictures will be copied on to your USB. This will be provided soon after the event.

Backgrounds & Prints


Can I customise my background or curtain?

How big are the prints?

Our prints measure 6 x 4”/15 x 10 cm.

Do we get unlimited photos?

Yes you get unlimited photos with all of our packages.

How good are your photos & prints?

They’re fantastic!

Will there be a problem if our event is on the 5th floor?

No, our photo booths can fit anywhere and can be easily transported around venues but there may be a surcharge depending on the venue. But a lift is essential to transport the booths across multi-story’s.

Can it be used in marquees or outdoors?

Our photo booths require a covered location as electricity and water don’t mix and you can never guarantee the British weather (even in the Summer)! They are absolutely fine in a marquee as long as there is a relatively flat, solid floor and power for a normal 13 amp socket.
