Perfect for any tropical-themed wedding day, this bright and colourful photo booth idea will be loved by your guests.

We’re huge fans of the asymmetric palm and flower embellishments – and the laser-cut “aloha” wording!

If you’re hosting a winter wedding, you need your photo booth to follow in style. This rustic photo booth idea is totally fitting for any celebration in the colder months.

If you’re thinking of recreating this yourself, pick up some artificial ivy from Amazon as well as ivory pillar candles to frame the installation.

3. Outdoor Wedding Photo Booth

Hosting an outdoor wedding? If the weather allows, it’s a lovely idea to pop your photo booth outside, too.

We love this tropical photo booth. The couple have built a sofa into their photo booth backdrop to encourage more relaxed images. We love it!

5. Carnation Wedding Photo Booth

Do you have carnations in your wedding bouquet? Pink and orange carnations have added a really welcome pop of colour to this otherwise simple photo booth.

If you’ve got your heart set on a country garden wedding, consider hanging a wooden swing like this from one of the trees in the grounds of your wedding venue.

It would make such a lovely photo backdrop, particularly if you provide guests with some garden party photo booth props.

8. Floral Wedding Photo Booth

This wedding photo booth backdrop would be so easy to recreate yourself at home.

All you need are some wooden panels that can be painted any colour to fit your colour theme (we love this pink version!) and plenty of artificial flower garlands!

This modern wedding photo booth would be fitting to a whole array of wedding themes.

We love the laser-cut lettering and the white rose flower arrangements.

10. Neon Wedding Photo Booth

Quirky couples will love the idea of incorporating a neon sign into their wedding décor. This one says: “’til death do us party” and is framed with a ring of palm leaves and red roses.

What a cool set-up!

11. Photo Guest Book Photo Booth

Don’t fancy a full-blown photo booth? Why not leave a Polaroid camera on display instead, so that guests can take photos and stick them into a guest book?

This is such a great alternative guest book idea… and your loved ones can always take two snaps if they want to keep one for themselves! Just make sure you provide plenty of film…
