Photo booth hire at Star City – Stuck in the lift

Photo booth hire at Star City

All my photo booth equipment got stuck in the lift during a photo booth hire at Star City. It all happened when I arrived for Ellie’s 21st Birthday party. I’ve been to Star City several time, so I know the place well. It did not occur to me that I’d need to use the lift to take the photo booth up to the first floor of goals soccer centre where they have a function room. I thought the safest way to get the heavy stuff up was to use the disability access lift.

I packed the photo booth equipment in with the help of the security guard. After that, I went up the stairs to call the lift. Halfway up, the lift got stuck. This became a race against time. Panic! will I resolve this situation in time for booking start time?

The very helpful security guard made a call to the manager. With a lot of trial and error, we were soon able to send the lift back down. He knew what he was doing. In no time, we were able to send the lift back up again this time in 3 separate trips.  I went straight into auto pilot mode, unpacking, assembling and setting up. Yes we made it. The photo booth was ready to use bang on time. With a lot of sweat and scrapes of course.

Sometimes when you book a venue and want to have a photo booth, you may be worried about space. The allocated space was small but the booth was able to fit in. The guests didn’t mind squeezing around it to get in. Our recommended floor space a full photo booth setup is 3 meters by 3 meters. They took lots of photos and loved every moment of it. The theme was gold and black and we designed a nice photo template to go with it.

If you’re unsure of whether the space you have will do for the photo booth hire, you can always contact us to discuss this.

Photo booth at The Belfry was a magical night

Magic photo booth at The Belfry!

Oh the perks of providing photo booth at The Belfry! I was lucky to witness some outstanding magic tricks at the Veolia HR Conference 2017 hosted at The Belfry Hotel and Resort, Sutton Coldfield. There were gasps and cheers as David the magician of Britain’s Got Talent fame moved from table to table entertaining the guests with some spectacular tricks.
Bliss photo booth also caught some of the magic. From the start of the evening, we don’t know how we were able to fit so many people into one booth. After each photo there was such a long trail of people coming out of the booth I had to do a double take to see if the booth was bigger than normal.

We provided the ultimate photo booth experience to about 150 guests at the conference and everyone enjoyed themselves. I heard so many North and South puns as a little competition started between the North and South teams to see who had the best pose idea with the photo booth props.
If I was asked to judge, I’d say who. It was a classy evening with the live band music, magnificent venue and charming guests. An evening worth remembering with the photos from the photo booth.

Favourite photo booth props used during the photo booth at the belfry

The two favourite props of the night were The Viking Horns and the Jumbo Hot Dog.

We’ll be happy to provide our services to Veolia HR Conference again. Veolia HR Conference 2018. See you there. If you ever want to hire a photo booth at The belfry you can contact us. I’m also seriously considering putting in my application to David as a magicians assistant.

Christmas Party Photo Booth in Evesham

Primafruit Christmas Party Photo Booth

Blissphotobooth services were requested for a Christmas Party Photo Booth in Evesham but  the party started even before I got to Evesham.  For once the motorways were incident free. It was more or less a leisurely cruise from Birmingham to Evesham with great pop Christmas tunes blasting on the radio.

No untoward traffic, no road rage, no crazy motorway driving. This is more than I could hope for as the rush of the Christmas season is already in. The only thing slightly annoying was the monstrous lorries driving a tad too fast with their multiple lights glaring round sharp corners along the A44 to Evesham. That and the intermittent loss of transmission on the radio causing a chink in my Christmas zone music.

Christmas party event venue

I arrived at Bar 24  (24 -25 Cowl St, Evesham WR11 4PN) early enough to set up and was ready a good 20 minutes before photo booth booking start time.

Christmas party event DJ

Richard T of DJT entertainments ( t:07815130497) was also already setup when I got there. Withing a few minutes of listening to his sounds, you could tell he was an experienced hand. The evening was getting more and more promising.

Surprise from the host

Denise from PRIMAFRUIT  greeted me with 3 coupons for any drink of my choice from the bar.

Trust me they were very handy when the place started to get really HOT!

The Blissphotobooth experience

The first guests walked up to me and asked how much it cost to use the photo booth.  I smiled and said its part of the evening entertainment organsied by your company so it’s FREE! They gave a big Whoop! and jumped straight in. Curtains closed, the laughter started the photo booth was swaying, they were rushing to change props before the next click of the camera. When they got out, they were still laughing and out of breath.

A couple of the guys said this was the first time they had a photo booth at their Christmas party and they were loving every moment of it. They hope to have it again at their next Christmas do.

It was a party to remember. We had lots of fun and enjoyed ourselves delivering a great Christmas party photo booth in Evesham.

Jess & Millie’s Bliss Birthday party photo booth Burton upon Trent

Double birthday photo booth Burton upon Trent

This Friday 14th October, was in Burton on Trent for a double 14th birthday party. Yes it was double the fun double the excitement and double the bliss for Jess and Millie at the Barton Under Needwood Bowls Club. We delivered our new birthday party photo booth Burton upon Trent.

We set off very early from Birmingham to get there but unfortunately arrived later than expected due to the extended traffic on the A38. In addition, our postcode also took us to a back country road but with the help of the parents and staff at the venue we were redirected.

We had a nice space already decorated and signed ‘photo booth’ waiting for us at the venue. To allow for extra space a partial photobooth was setup. This takes less space and is not enclosed. It looks like a selfie pod. We also had a wonderful surprise waiting for us. Props! lots and lots of props to choose from. The Birthday children’s parents had organised all this for the event. We didn’t even need to bring out our own props. They had such a wide range to choose from. I can fairly say we’ve got some new prop ideas from them.

In conclusion, it was a successful event because everyone at the event contributed to making it a fabulous birthday party. In addition, I even learnt how to properly ‘dab’. Dabbing is a new selfie pose which is a variation of the dab dance made popular by footballers and other celebrities.
