Photo Booth : The Vanity Fair

Remember that crazy month where we were running pillar to post organising/designing photo booths? You don’t? Well, we do because it was crazaaay! We set up this Hawaiian photo booth in Ludhiana , rushed home at 3 am to be back in time to set up this photo booth at the Vanity Fair! We managed to have almost everything in order. Almost. We didn’t do the most important thing- like print our catalogues, or our cards or make our photo albums for people to see what we do and how we work. Yes, lesson learnt the hard way. That said and done, we had two days of madness and boy! did people love the photo booth!! We are grateful to everyone who came (over and over again) and made the PhotoBooth a huge success.

A quick note on the Vanity Fair before we jump to the photos-Vanity Fair is like a garden market (only it’s HUGE) that happens twice a year in Chandigarh in a place called Whispering Willows. Everyone who lives in or around Chandigarh knows Whispering Willows- hundreds of people have had their weddings there -in fact, that is where my brother got married and we had our engagement party! It never fails to be the best venue ,have the best food and best service.The lady behind the Vanity Fair is Priya Grewal- she has been organising the fair for many years now and is an expert at it. Everything runs flawlessly and the 5000 + (or is it 10000+?)visitors to the two day fair enjoy shopping and eating and just hanging out! You can find pretty much anything under the sun at The Vanity Fair from wedding stuff, clothes for kids, home decor, beauty products, music, beer, food and even a photo booth! We are so grateful to Priya for offering us a spot this year to set up our Photo Booth. It was a blast!

 

Even though it was October and the weather should’ve been pleasant, it was HOT HOT HOT!

We had a spot by the pool and just pretended we were by a beach – tanning!

At our engagement party, we had this bright pink scooter that we used as a prop- that inspired us to paint this bicycle blue-isn’t it adorable?

Looks like fun , huh? It was! Can’t wait till the next Vanity Fair- I have a feeling we will be there again ! 🙂

Thursday Thoughts: Photo Booth

The first time I came across a photo booth, or Smile Booth as they call it- was here on The Flash Dance website. It was instant love for me, right from the photography to the music they have on their website especially the playlists which you can download if you want!! But before I deviate (because it’s so easy to get lost in their awesome website)- let’s go back to what we are here for!

So what is this photo-booth business? A good explanation can be seen in the F.A.Q section on the Smilebooth website here.

These photographs are from the Smilebooth section from The Flash Dance.

Basically, it’s a mini studio set up at your wedding where guests can go and take their own photographs and go crazy doing their own thing . It’s a totally different angle to what the photographer who is covering the wedding will get! So, at the end of the wedding – there will be a whole bunch of fun pictures that you wouldn’t have otherwise. It’s a space where your guests aren’t conscious of being watched and can get as creative or crazy as they want. All they have to do is click on the remote button and take as many photos as their heart desires!

These three photos are from Our Labor Of Love’s blog.
