Vintage Photo Booth Hire

Vintage, retro & rustic photo booths for hire across the UK

Roll up! Roll up!

This is The Travelling Booth. We provide vintage, retro and rustic style photo booths for events across the UK. Born out of a distaste for the tacky, inflatable, overexposed world of photo booths we decided to create something a bit more unique.

Now based in London, we started life in Norfolk. We’re happy to cover events across London and The South East of England, but also throughout The South West of England, Bristol, East Anglia – Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, Cambridgeshire.

We tend to cover a lot of weddings and private parties but we’re equally at home working with commercial clients and can tailor a package suitable for your needs. Equally, if you’re looking for a permanent photo booth installed in your venue we can design and create something to fit your brand.

Whether your organising a quirky event, or want some rustic chic at your wedding, or perhaps you need something a little more retro, we can fit your vibe. All our props are genuinely vintage and unique – we love nothing more than trailing charity shops, car boot and jumble sales finding new and exciting pieces for our dressing up boxes!

As professional photographers we know how to make your photos top quality – we use DSLRs, studio flashes and superfast printers to provide you with excellent prints throughout the booking.

At the end of the event all your photos will be uploaded to your own personal gallery – you and your guests can download them and share them from there.

Happy days! To find out more just get in touch…

Vintage Photo Booth props

Some lovely words about us…


We booked The Travelling Booth for our wedding, alongside Ben as our photographer. It was absolutely ideal – super quick set up so it was all ready for the guests straight after dinner, loads of props and the camera was easy to use. The props were so varied, unique, and great quality, and the guests all had so much fun! We ended up with a mountain of printed photos, which is perfect. The album was sent across very promptly the day after the wedding for us to share and download, and we loved looking back at all the photos so soon! Thank you again Ben and team!!


We absolutely loved The Travelling Booth – the retro set up suited our theme perfectly and people still tell us how much fun they had. Fully recommended!


These guys saved us last minute by stepping in after we had been let down by a different company. Oh how I wish we’d found The Travelling Booth first! From my first enquiry to the booth itself, and the photo book at the end of the night, we can’t thank you enough!

How many people can we get in the photo booth

Err how long’s a piece of string? We don’t enforce any strict limits! Realistically 8 is probably the max to get in shot, but there’s certainly been more…


Can we see what you look like whilst you're posing?

Well in most of our booths you can now see yourself as they’re fitted with touchscreens. Our original photo booth, which we still use, has no screen though, making the vintage feel perhaps more real!

Can I customise the backdrop

For sure, if you want to choose a different fabric backdrop we’ll knock it up for an extra £50 – £100… as long as you’re not going for silk velvet or leopard fur or something. If you have something you want to use already (a nice wall for example, or something with your corporate logo on) then that would be very possible as well, we are VERY customisable, get in touch and we can chat about it.

Can I have colour or black & white prints?

Definitely. The software we use lets your guests choose between colour and B&W for each shot. If you want all the prints to be B&W we can make that happen too.

Can we have branding on our prints?

If you want branding on your prints then we can do that. Send us your logo/info you want on the print and we’ll create your vision!

As standard prints have your names, the date, and a gallery weblink on them, as well as our logo. See here for examples.

Do we get unlimited prints?

Yes you do!


How does the guestbook work?

Having a guestbook at your event is a great way to remember your guests, we encourage guests to take a couple of shots, one for themselves and one for the album, they then stick them in and write a short note.



How long does setup take?

We always allow two hours for setup, it probably only takes us about an hour but this allows for any unexpected events or difficulties due to location/venue irregularities.


Can you set up early?

Sometimes you may need us to set up before the event begins, we can set up early, we charge £25 an hour idle time (not including setup time).


Can the booth be used in marquees or outdoors?

Well… yes it certainly can be used in marquees or yurts or anything with a reasonably overlapping roof. Can it be used outdoors? It can but we need to be absolutely 100% sure it’s not going to rain! We have some lovely, delicate, complex electrics going on inside those wooden boxes… But, we can work outside, we have before, however, any chance of a shower is a definite no no!


Who owns the pictures and copyright from each event?

We will always own the copyright to every image, however, our contract allows for you to use, share and print the images for your own personal use. If you want to use them for commercial use (i.e. to advertise yourselves for commercial gain) or for editorial (i.e. to promote an event in a newspaper or magazine article) please get in touch, we can always work something out.


Do I need to pay a deposit?

Yes please! The initial deposit is £100. Once we have sent you a quote for your event all you need to do is pay the deposit and sign the contract and everything is then booked.


How much do you charge for travel?

There is no charge for travel within 60 miles of Walthamstow, London. After that, we charge 50p per mile. But we will travel anywhere, always exciting to get about and see the country!


How big is the photo booth?

Well we need about 3m x 3m to fit in comfortably. We could get into a smaller space but it’s good not to be too cramped. We can have quite a lot of activity around the booth at busy times so it’s better to have space for people to mill about.


Do you stay with the photo booth?

Oh yes, our attendant stays with the booth from setup until pack down, they will be constantly on hand to make sure everything runs smoothly and that your guests have the most amazing experience!
