FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Do you provide props with a rental?
Yes, the option to have props comes free of charge with every photo booth hire. We have a vast array of options and themes available and will discuss your requirements at the time of booking.
Do you provide staff with the booth?
Our staff will not only set up the equipment, they will also host the booth, print images and generally make sure guests are getting the most from the experience. Please note that magic mirrors are generally not attended during the hire period.
How much space do I need for a photo booth?
Our oval booths are 2.3m in length, 1.3m wide and 2m high. We would also need one regular power socket.
Don’t worry if you have less space, we can usually adapt our equipment to work in more restricted areas, however we would require advance notice of this.
Are you insured?
Yes, we have public liability insurance.
Do we need to have staff attending the booth?
For insurance purposes, it is expected that our booths will be attended, however if you prefer the privacy of not having our staff then that’s ok. We can give you a quick overview of the workings of the booth and leave you to it, with a staff member on standby for the duration of the hire. However, we do recommend having a booth host to ensure that the event runs smoothly and to get the best out of the experience.
Will your staff fit in with the theme of the event?
Absolutely. Our team are usually identifiable with their smart uniforms. As standard, our staff wear discretely branded black polo shirts and black trousers. For more formal bookings we can wear smart white shirts with a combination of a waistcoat and either a tie or bow tie. It’s your event, so please let us know what you prefer the attendant(s) to wear, or if you have an alternative dress code you’d like us to follow (within reason, of course!).
Can you put our company logo on the booth?
Sure. We have lots of branding options and can be very creative with the way the booth looks. There are costs attached though, so please get in touch for a quote.
Can we close the booth during our dinner/ceremony?
Absolutely! We often set up for guests arriving at the reception, close while your formalities take place and then reopen for the party. We usually make a small charge for these ‘idle’ hours, to cover our costs, so please enquire at the time of booking.
How long does it take to set up?
We will arrive an hour before the start time. This gives us more than adequate time to set-up. Break down is about 30 minutes.
Do I get a copy of the pictures after the event?
Absolutely. We’ll provide you with a copy of all the files from the event on a USB stick. If we can’t do this directly at the end of the hire, it’ll be in the post the next working day.
Can guests see the images after the event?
Yes, unless you tell us otherwise we will upload images to a password protected area of our site (www.redphoto.co.uk/photos) the day after your event. The exact URL and password will be displayed at the event and an email will be sent to the organiser when the gallery is live.
Can kids use the booth?
Yes and no! The DSLR camera on our booths are fixed at eye level for the average adult, which means that little ones would need to be lifted up or (at their parents’ risk) stand on a stool (not supplied by us) while in the booth. If you have a kids party, or lots of small ones at your event, then we can usually fit a web cam type of camera which can be positioned lower and has more adjustability. Please contact us if you have any questions or expect to have children at your event.
FUN CASINO FAQ
Is it legal?
Yes, absolutely! Fun casinos do not need a licence as long as guests are not playing for real money. We comply with the British gaming laws and typically the venue does not need a license. If you would like more details on this please do not hesitate to contact us.
If you are planning an event for at which guests are expected to pay to play (for example, a charity event), we recommend visiting the Gambling Commission’s website for further advice.
Can you teach us what to do?
Absolutely! Our staff will always be happy to advise players. If your guests are mostly novices, we can also have a tutorial session before the main action, or we can set up some training tables where our dealers can teach your players the basics of the games.
What do the croupiers wear?
We can fit into the theme and mood of your event and have several options available. For an authentic casino experience, most clients like to have the dealers dressed in the traditional croupier garb of a crisp white shirt and a bow tie. We can also attire female croupiers in uniform evening dress, with tuxedos for the men, or if you prefer something a bit more informal we have the option of smart but simple branded black shirts. For corporate events, we are usually able to have our staff dressed in a uniform supplied or specified by the client.
What games do you provide?
We have a full sized roulette table, with an ex-casino John Huxley wheel, black jack and poker tables, for Texas Hold ‘Em poker tournaments. We can also offer training tables for roulette and black jack, and are due to take delivery of a ‘Wheel of Fortune’ soon.
