Tell us a bit more about yourself
Busography is a unique and quirky Vintage Campervan Photobooth providing hours of entertainment, and high quality images to brides and grooms in the form of print strips. HD images are also available to download via our website, and we also offer photo keyrings. Everything that we offer is completely customisable to suit every couples needs.
How did you get into this business?
Having enjoyed planning every fine detail of our own wedding, and then supporting friends and family with the planning of their weddings, and Ross already being in the design industry, we wanted to transfer our skills and branch out to helping more couples enjoy their special day. The VW Campervan, Benji, was a restoration project of ours, and we couldn’t think of a better way to ensure that everybody got to enjoy it than by hiring it out to weddings, whilst also seeking to be unique and different.
What is your favourite wedding style/product that you provide?
We love a festival and boho themed wedding style in an outdoor setting and feel that Benji’s vibrant colour really helps to set the scene and stand out as being unique.
What is your favourite thing about working in the wedding industry?
We absolutely love being able to be a part of the most magical day of a couples journey together, and catching their enjoyment, and the enjoyment of their guests as they celebrate.
What makes you different to the competition?
With Ross being a graphic designer, we are able to offer fully personalised print strips that are of a professional quality. We also stand out from other photo booths as our booth is fully embedded within the Campervan, yet we are still able to offer a large variety of backdrops and props to tie in with any wedding theme whilst remaining competitive with our prices.
What top tips would you give couples planning their being day?
We think that it is super important for every couple to schedule time into their big day away from their guests to take 5 minutes to reflect and soak in the atmosphere of their day. We try to support this by offering every bride and groom the chance to have their photos first in the booth for some time sneaky and fun time to themselves.
What is your biggest business highlight?
Being relatively new to the wedding industry, our highlights have to be when a bride or groom recommends our products and services on social media following their event.
