One way to make your special day even more memorable is by incorporating a unique photo booth for you and your guests to have a bit of fun. From fairy lights to art murals and floral installations, add a touch of magic to your photo memories with these creative wedding photo booth ideas.

1. Floral Installation

Step into an ethereal wonderland with a floral installation photo booth. Create a breathtaking backdrop using an abundance of fresh or faux flowers, lush greenery, and cascading vines. A floral display will provide a stunning backdrop for your guests’ photos, adding a touch of romance to your special day.

With show stopping installations at every corner there would have been no shortage of photo-worthy backdrops at this wedding. Take inspiration from Emilia’s floral archway, the perfect backdrop for exchanging vows.

2. Retro Seating Area

Transport your guests back in time with a retro-inspired photo booth. Set up a cozy area with vintage furniture, retro props, and vibrant colors. This nostalgic setup will not only capture fun and playful moments amongst guests but also create a unique atmosphere where friends and family can relax and enjoy the celebrations. Get inspired by the unique seating Mr and Mrs. Metcalf had set up for their bridal party portraits, or the laidback seating corner from Alexandra and Marco’s special day.

Create a romantic ambience with a fairy light wedding photo booth backdrop. Strands of twinkling fairy lights can turn any venue – whether it’s a garden, rustic bar, or elegant ballroom - into a magical space. The soft and warm glow of the lights will create a dreamy backdrop that perfectly complements any theme or season. Take inspiration from Olivia’s winter wedding. The backdrop of dazzling Christmas trees and fairy lights worked perfectly for the festive occasion.

4. Art Mural

Transform your photo booth into a work of art with an eye-catching mural backdrop. Collaborate with an artistic friend or local artist to create a custom mural that complements your wedding theme and color palette. This visually striking photo booth will not only provide a stunning backdrop but serves as an interactive art piece that you can have on display at home once the festivities are over.

5. Neon Signage

Add a pop of color and personality to a wedding photo booth with neon signage. Choose a custom-made neon sign that reflects your soon-to-be shared surname, wedding theme, or showcases a special message. The vibrant glow of the neon lights will create a lively and modern backdrop, ensuring your guests’ photos stand out with a trendy touch. Take inspiration from the ‘Happily Ever After’ neon sign featured at Nathan and Jordane’s wedding, or the signage celebrating the Bennica’s shared surname.

6. Traditional Photo Booth

Step into the charm of nostalgia with a traditional photo booth that captures the essence of vintage photography. This classic addition to your wedding day brings back the excitement of instant prints. Guests can step inside the booth, strike a pose, and take the printed polaroids home as a tangible keepsake from your special day. Leave a stash of props - like Emilie and Ethan had at their wedding - alongside the photo booth for guests to have a bit of fun!

7. DIY Polaroid Guestbook

Give your guests creative license to choose whatever photo backdrop they like with a DIY polaroid station. Set up a dedicated area with polaroid cameras and stationery that your guests can use to take a selfie and write words of wisdom in a beautifully designed guestbook. This interactive ‘photo booth’ idea will allow guests to bring their personality to the forefront. We loved the setup from Jamie Lynn Kasicky’s wedding; polaroid cameras accompanied by old photos from the past weddings of family and friends made for a truly sentimental touch.

8. Streamer Wall

Transform a dedicated area of your wedding venue into a lively canvas adorned with brightly colored ribbons and streamers. This eye-catching backdrop serves as an invitation for guests to let loose, strike playful poses, and capture candid moments brimming with joy and laughter.
