Frequently asked questions

What is Marryoke?


Marryoke turns the photo booth into a video karaoke machine! As well as taking photographs, we can add a your choice of one or two songs that your guests can sing along to. The words apear on the booth touchscreen and the backing track is played through the booth sound system. We'll record your guests singing then take all of the footage away and splice it. We'll also add the original backing track over the top for better sound quality. You can see some previous Marryoke mash-ups on our Youtube channel.




What is Green Screen?


Green Screen allows your guests to choose from a number of preset background images, and the booth software will replace the green curtain with this image on their photos. We can add as many backgrounds as you wish, but we recommend no more than 20 to keep the booth running quickly during busy periods.




Are prints included in the hire?


Yes! It takes the photo booth around 12 seconds to print your guests' photo once they've completed their poses, and applied a filter if desired. The prints are produced by a qigh quality dye sublimination printer onto premium photo paper, and are touch dry instantly.




How many people can the booth accomodate?


Our standard photo booth can hold 1-6 people comfortably. It’s intimate enough for couples, and spacious enough for group shots. As it doesn’t contain seating, it’s also wheelchair-friendly – although we’ll have to move the camera a fraction, which doesn’t take long.




How long does it take you to set up?


Approximately 60 minutes to build the photo booth, connect all electricals, and run some diagnostic tests. We’ll always be on-site at least 90 minutes prior to the hire start to ensure it’s ready for you. We always prefer to be early and ready with time to spare!




How many times can we use the booth?


Unlimited! There are no restrictions on how many times your guests use the photo booth and 1 print is produced each time (2 if you choose strip prints). We can usually get around 30 shots per hour (this can vary with video recording and marryoke packages). We love a busy booth so we’ll always be on hand looking after your guests and getting as many people in and out as we possibly can!




How much space do you need?


The photo booth is approx 2.3m long, 1.5m wide and 2m high, so at the very least we need a space big enough to accommodate this. We also have tables holding the props, your guestbook and other items so we need to fit these in as well. Ideally a space of 3m x 3m ensures enough room although we’ve always managed to find a way to fit everything in – even in smaller venues. If your venue is really struggling to provide room for us, we can build just the front of the booth, creating a 'selfie pod' - although this means there'll be no backdrop curtain.




Can we hire the photobooth for a childrens' party?


Yes! as long as the majority are over 13. The booth isn’t suitable for small children unless they’re with an adult. This is due to the position of the camera. Please note our usual prices apply.




What is 'Idle Time'?


Idle Time is any time the booth is set up at your venue but not in use. For example if you needed us to be set-up by 2pm but didn’t want the photo booth to be in operation until 8pm, we may, at our discretion, charge for 6 hours of Idle Time. We'll advise you of any idle time charges when you create your booking.




What happens if something goes wrong?


We’ll try our very best to fix it! Being quite technically-minded we can troubleshoot most software/electrical problems in just a couple of minutes. If the booth is out of action for more than a few minutes we’ll extend your hire time. If we can’t get it working at all, we’ll refund you in full, or pro-rata for any individual services that stop working. To date, we’ve not had a single problem at an event that wasn’t fixed in a matter of seconds.




We've had a cheaper quote, will you match it?


Probably not! We’re not the cheapest nor the most expensive, in fact we’re priced in line with most of our real competitors and offer many more bundled features. We’d advise you to be very careful booking anyone considerably cheaper, and make absolutely sure you know what you’re getting for your money – is it a photo booth or just a camera on a tripod, and will you be getting more than half a dozen props?




Why are your Terms & Conditions so long?


We like to make sure that you know what you can expect from us -which is a professional and friendly service - and we ask that our staff are treated with respect at all times. They also cover our obligations to you if something does go wrong, and outline limitations of some of the services.
