Boutique Booths is a trading name of Safe and Sound Events Ltd. It was originally founded in 2013 by Andrew Laundy.
We are the UK’s premier luxury full length photo booth experience for weddings and events, much more than your average photo booth. We provide a unique entertainment experience - our fully hosted service enables all guests to capture memorable life moments in a fun and creative way. Everyone can express themselves and create lifelong memories whilst enjoying our ‘party within a party.’
Boutique Booths was Andrew's vision and here is his story...
I have been to a few weddings where there have been photo booths and I have always had a strange feeling that something was missing but couldn’t work out what it was. During the evening of a friend’s wedding, in the queue for their photo booth I overheard the Maid of Honour say to the Bride “isn’t it such a shame you can’t see our dresses properly!?!”
That was when I worked out what it was that was bothering me and came up with the idea for Boutique Booths; full-length images like a photo shoot, but with the fun nature and size of a photo booth.
I have personally been in a number of Passport Booths, Selfie Pods and booths in various types of van, taxi cab, trailer and tuktuk. Each one generally doing a great job, but all doing the same standard ‘head and shoulders passport photos’. Invariably, the person running the booth (if you’re not left to fend for yourself) has no intention of getting involved and trying to make the night more fun for the guests. I’ve even seen an attendant shout at people for trying to get more than 5 people in a booth.
All of these 'little bits of unhappiness' gathered through my experience with a wide array of booths from lots of different providers made me think "there must be a better way of doing this!"
Currently we’re the only one in the UK providing completely full length images and our testimonials show that everyone has a fantastic time. We won the 2016 and 2014 awards for the Most Popular Photo Booth in the UK by The Wedding Industry Experts, and were runners up in 2015. We were also finalists in the 2015 and 2016 Wedding Industry Awards “Special Touch” category and the Essex Wedding Awards 2014 and 2015 “Wow Factor” category.
