Getting set up on your event
Q: How much space and which services do we need?
A: We require a floor space of two metres by three metres which will be enough for the footprint of the photo booth and allow space for people to gather around. This must be within two to three metres of a standard electrical power socket. It must be on a firm surface, so if your event is in a marquee or similar, a suitable base will be required.
Q: How long do you take to set up and dismantle the booth? Is this included in the hire price?
A: We normally allow one hour to set up the photo booth, although it can be done in less time, and we can dismantle the booth in under 30 minutes. However, it does depend on where the booth is situated in the venue – every job is different. The hiring time begins from when you start using the photo booth. All time required for setup is included free of charge and is not included in your hire time.
Q: Do you provide staff with the photo booths?
A: Yes, we always provide a dreambooth usher at each event to make sure that you and your guests are properly taken care of. They are on hand to answer questions, assist in the use of the photo booth and to generally make sure that everything runs smoothly.
Q: Who operates the photo booth?
A: Your guests! There is a professional dreambooth usher with your booth at all times but it’s your party so you run the show!
Q: Is the photo booth accessible to all?
A: Yes, our photo booth has curtain sides and can fit approximately 4 to 6 adults. It’s standard measurements are 2.1 metres in length x 1.2 metres wide x 2 metres high. It is intended to be used by guests in either a standing or sitting position. The camera height has some adjustment and if we are notified prior to the event we may be able to accommodate wheelchair users.
Q: Do you have a Public Liability Insurance?
A: Yes, we have Public Liability Insurance of up to £5 million. All our booths are PAT tested. We can supply certificates upon request.
Q: What happens if the booth has technical problems on the event?
A: We rarely have any technical problems we cannot solve on site. However, if for any reason e.g. sickness, accident, car breakdown, equipment failure (with the exception of the printer) we are unable to provide you with a functioning dreambooth, our liability will be limited to the refunding the amount of the original booking. This does not affect our responsibilities under the statutory requirements and our insurance cover.
Q: What is included in the photo booth prop box?
A: A great choice of items for your guests to play with such as hats, glasses, masks, wigs and a chalk board for scribbling quirky messages.
Q: Can we customise or put graphics on the booth?
A: Yes! We can either print smaller graphics onto vinyl and apply these to the booth or if you would like to cover the whole booth we can print onto Foamex boards and apply these to the face of the booth. We price designs individually and provide a quotation that is tailored to your specific requirements. Please contact us for more details.
Q: How much does hiring a dreambooth cost?
A: If you are looking for something slightly different, please contact us for a bespoke quotation.
