Photobooth : {LOVE} Sam & Richie

‘Super excited’ explains perfectly what we felt  when Jessica asked us to cover her cousins ‘before the wedding’ party! Like the perfect customer, she gave us enough time to plan and figure things out which gave us the opportunity to actually make our FIRST photo booth (so many firsts on the blog these days!) ! It is something April and I have spoken about many  a time- the photo booth is the way to go especially at a party where madness is guaranteed! I had to leave for a work trip so April was left to make the back drop (ribbons were what we decided on).  Little did we know that ,it may look pretty to have a ribbon back drop but it is by no means EASY to make ! First, the cost of ribbons (yes! we take for granted these pieces of pretty string things!They COST!) and then actually putting them together to make the back drop. This is where April gets full marks in resourcefulness (she raided her mums boutique and found tonnes of ribbon there), patience (the ribbons were less than half an inch wide), creativity (weaving together the ribbons) and balance (standing on a stool in the bathroom using the shower curtain rod to weave the ribbon curtain)! I’d have given up about two minutes into the process. Alright, I must stop talking about us and talk about the couple but this being our first photo booth experience, I needed to share it with all of you! Clearly, I am sharing too much!

Onto the fabulous couple- Sam and Richie! Sorry Sam, I can’t use your real name- it just doesn’t feel right when I type it 😀 ! The added bonus of being at this party was of course the fact that we know both the bride and the groom quite well and knew what to look forward to. It was an awesome party- with so many friends and family from all over the world, and well so much…LOVE! I will let the photographs speak for themselves!

The bride and the groom! Can you feel the love?!

The necessities: Blackberry, friends and of course family!

What happens when the bride doesn’t weigh much?


The bride got a ‘special’ dance too which we can’t share with you here,unfortunately! You can use your imagination for that !

Away from the photobooth, people danced,ate and DANCED ! Oh, and continued to work the camera!

The fact that this song played in my head the entire time I was processing the photos should come as no surprise to the bride and her friends! Since it was pretty much the only song I heard while taking the photographs as well!


So, what did you think? Did you like the photographs?

We covered the wedding as well, but for those photos you will have to wait a while!

Oh, and Merry Christmas !!

  1. That is really attention-grabbing, You are an excessively professional blogger.
    I’ve joined your rss feed and look ahead to in search of extra of your excellent post. Also, I’ve
    shared your web site in my social networks

  2. Oooh Afsha isn’t very nice, is she !? Maybe she isn’t as imaginative as you guys..
    Anyway, just want to say i love your blog and i love the photobooth idea, im so doing it for the next party we have, although the backdrop won’t be half as good as April’s – But seriously, an absolutely amazing idea !!!

  3. I don’t think it is sloppy at all, It looks cute and goes well with the theme of the party !
    I do like things that are handmade, it demonstrates that people have put time and EFFORT into making something and not bought materials just because they are cheap ! Granted there may be other things that can look nice that don’t cost very much but hey, you live you learn ! 🙂
    Jess, I wish I had been there too. And Kismet & April, I have an idea for your next photobooth. hehe. xxx

    • Thanks Tania for understanding what it was all really about! April spent so many hours making that backdrop and you know even if it was in the most hideous colours- it would still have been beautiful because of all that effort!
      Tell us your next idea! 🙂

  4. the photobooth is sloppy…..don’t understand the rationale for using those listless ribbons when there are so many cheap and sprightly materials doing the rounds in the markets these days…..

    • Point us in the direction of these sprightly cheap materials and we will be happy to use them instead! Till then, appreciate the effort that went into making this curtain of ribbons! We would appreciate it!
