Christchurch Bridal Show


This month saw us at the Christchurch Bridal Show at the Addington Events Centre – What a fabulous day! We loved meeting all the couples and bridal parties and showing them the magic of the photo booth – It really is a fantastic way to bring a little extra to your wedding and create lasting memories for you and your guests. And most importantly.. it’s FUN!

We had non stop laughs throughout the day coming from inside the booth and continuing on once the prints were viewed outside.

If you signed up to our mailing list, keep an eye on your inbox,  you’ll be getting our special expo offer very soon!

Wellington Autumn Wedding Show Sunday 17th May


Wellington Wedding Show

You get engaged to someone before you marry them so there’s nothing wrong with a little try before you buy!

Head down to the Wellington Wedding Show on Sunday 17th of May and pay Greg a visit on our stand. We’ll have a booth there to try out and Greg will be able to answer your questions (and there are none that are too silly to ask).

The other great thing about Wedding Shows is that we always have some sort of top secret deal in the mix. If you sign up for our mailing list we’ll be able to let you in on what that special will be after the expo is done and dusted. See you there!


Look what we have……

When in the Waikato…


The Hamilton team love living in the stunning Waikato – and if you have to ask why?!  Here is our top 10 to get you going!

 

Visit our international award winning Hamilton Gardens – around every corner there is a magical story and a portal through time and to far-flung corners of the world.

 

Meet the animals and discover the wonders of the living world at Hamilton Zoo, a wildlife sanctuary renowned for its generous habitats. Go behind the scenes on an animal encounter, or head along to one of the FREE ‘Meet the Keeper’ talks.

 

Support the Mooloo’s and the Chiefs with a home rugby game at Waikato Stadium.

 

Surf Manu Bay, Whale Bay or Ruapuke – three world class surf breaks at Raglan.

 

Discover the Waitomo glow worm caves and try black water rafting.

 

Bungee jump and check out Huka Falls in Taupo – the start of the Waikato river.

 

Discover The Shire of The Lord of the Rings! That’s right Middle Earth can be found right here in the middle of the Waikato. Tours run all day, transfers leave from the Matamata information centre throughout the day.

 

A location for the Narnian film Prince Caspian, Cathedral Cove and Hot Water Beach are must see spots in the beautiful Coromandel Peninsula.

 

Come and check out Balloons over Waikato every autumn.

 

Stay a while and earn a degree at Waikato University!

 

Or stay even longer – the Tron is the city of the future after all!

We hope you’ve enjoyed our little tour of our awesome home and FYI all of these locations have venues that are Photo Booth Fun friendly ;)


Open Day Fun


This month we had the privilege of returning to the Canterbury/West Coast Rescue Services Open Day in Christchurch. These vital services do an incredible job and the open day is a great way to involve the community, raise money and have fun.

There was a record turn out this month and we loved seeing so many people getting into the spirit of the day!

And I even managed to sneak a quick turn in the booth myself with the lovely Cheryle from Canterbury West Coast Air Rescue Trust who helped make this day such a cracker!

As you can see, we both follow the school of thought that the best pose is the one where you don’t take yourself too seriously!

 

Happy Autumn everyone!

Whats coming up in Auckland?


April is really shaping up to be a big month for the Auckland crew – with lots of cool things going on.

Next Tuesday we will have a stand at Convene – where organisers of conferences, meetings and incentives can source a diverse range of products and services under one roof.  Convene 2015 will be held on Tuesday April 21 from 9am-4.30pm at the ANZ Viaduct Events Centre.  We will be at stand number 86 – so if you are attending this expo, please come along and say hi.

The following weekend sees us back at the Grand Wedding Expo at Sky City.  This is one of our favourites, as we get to meet heaps of excited brides and grooms making plans for one of the biggest days of their lives.  If you are planning a wedding over the coming year, you really should come along to this expo – everything you need for your big day is under the one roof!
We are also attending a fundraiser for a 15 year old from Rangitoto College who has been selected to represent and speak at Gallipoli this year – wow what a privilege!

So as the weather takes a drop in temperature, things sure are continuing to stay hot here in the photo booth world!  Until next time, stay warm and well everyone!

Some other things to do with a booth


Good brand exposure right there!

Good brand exposure right there!

 

When people think about photo booths they normally see them at weddings, school balls or maybe the odd birthday or Christmas party but there are so many other times that a photo booth can be a really cool thing to have around. This blog is full of lots of occasions when our box has been to some out of the box events and put to some out of the box uses but here are a couple of suggestions.

Getting your brand out there

The life span of the humble photo strip can be much longer than you expect. We have lots of stories from people who meet us at events and expos who tell us that they have photos from our booths on their fridge or at the work space or on the noticeboard months or years after the event. We’ve even had the same folks come up to us several years in a row to update their “family photo”. So strips hang around for quite a while. We can customise those strips to carry your brand and your message so that its not just that the photos are reminders of a good time but also of your business.

Raising Awareness

There doesn’t just have to be a commercial imperative here either. We’ve helped spread health messages, encouraged tertiary education and promoted recycling amongst other things. Having a photo booth at events to raise awareness also helps give the event a fun and memorable twist that can help keep people around for a bit longer.

Raising funds

A booth at an event can also raise funds for your cause. We are happy to assist with charging a small fee to use the booth and because you get a USB stick with all the images from the booth on it after we’re done some canny groups have also sold the larger digital images to people after the event to raise some more much needed cash.

So whatever you want your event to achieve we can help that happen with our booths. Just get on the phone and talk to you local team to see how we can help out.


It’s Ball time in Taranaki!


This is going to be awesome!

Photo Booth Fun will be hitting the Taranaki Autumn Ball in May and we can’t wait! It turns out 350 other people were equally excited and snapped up all the tickets within the first few weeks of sale! We hope if you are in The Naki that you got your tickets nice and early but if you didn’t then don’t stress because we can come to your next event! We can’t think of an event that our booths wouldn’t be perfect for – if you are hosting guests then chances are  a Photo Booth Fun booth would be the perfect way to keep your guests laughing!

Tarabaki Autumn Ball Photo Booth Fun

But for now lets talk about ball season!

We were stoked to be involved with a heap of you last ball season and would love to bring our booth along this year too. We love everything about ball season – The dresses, the suits, the music, the photos… the crazy dance moves… we love it all! If you give us a call we would be happy to discuss your big night and talk through some options for you.

We can’t wait to see some of you at the Taranaki Autumn Ball and to all of those of you that missed out on tickets – remember every occasion is a booth occasion so get in touch!
