Hire Time

Your photo booth will be made available for the hire time you have booked based on the actual usage time at the venue. Set-up and break down of the photo booth is added either side of your hire time.
We will arrive at the venue 1 hour before the hire time starts to set up and leave 1 hour after the hire ends and take down has been completed.
If we are not ready to start at the agreed time due to reasons within our control, we will still operate the photo booth for the full agreed hire time by extending the finishing time (venue permitting).
If the hire does not start at the agreed time, as setup has been delayed due to unforeseen circumstances that are not our fault, then the hire will still end at the time booked.
If we have setup on time, but usage of the photo booth does not begin at the agreed time due to over running of previous activities at the event, the hire will still end as per the agreed time on the booking.
Should allocated supplies be used, the actual hire time may be reduced.
Additional hours can be purchased on the night for £75 per hour.
