Hiring a photo booth is becoming an increasingly popular option for people all over the UK – from northern locations such as Newcastle and Leeds to popular southern areas like London and Essex. Regardless of your county or city, a photo booth can provide a fun and unique touch to any special occasion.

Run-of-the-mill photo booths can include great features such as wind machines and green screens, yet there are still some even more unusual types of booth that will certainly get your guests talking and that will fit in perfectly with the theme of your occasion. Whether you are looking for photo booth hire in Essex or Northumberland, here are five unique ideas to consider for your next event.

A Mini Cooper photo booth is one way to add style and class to your occasion rather than have a conventional booth at your event. This is the perfect photo booth hire for the Essex girl looking to add a little bit of glam to her birthday celebrations, or to complement a British theme at a fancy dress party.

Functioning as optimally as a regular photo booth, a Mini Cooper booth has added style that also provides a great deal of fun for guests of all ages, young and old alike.

A second great option for the fancy dress theme is getting a photo booth hire that comesdisguised as Dr Who's Tardis. Like the Mini Cooper, this option really stands out, and everyone is sure to want to have their photo taken in it – and next to it! This iconic symbol is sure to be recognised by every Brit – whether a Dr Who fan or not – so will be appreciated by all.

For something a little classier, the next suggestion for an unusual yet impressive photo booth hire is renting a white London Cab for a wedding or black tie celebration. Not only are these vehicles icons, but they are also classy enough for guests at even the most prestigious events to want to have their photo taken in.

As an alternative, consider choosing a black London Cab or a graffiti-painted London Cab booth to offer the same amount of room as the white option, but provide alternative options for different types of occasions, such as a London-themed party or an urban event.

Another British classic that looks great at any occasion, even the most formal, is the red British post box booth. This type of photo booth hire is relatively compact, yet top companies ensure that it comes with all the same features as a regular booth.

This option is particularly great at an outside event, where it will certainly not look out of place. Again, this looks fantastic as part of a themed event, but is so classic that it can be hired for all different kinds of special occasions and parties.

The fifth and final suggestion for an unusual and impressive photo booth hire in Essex, London, Newcastle or anywhere else in the UK is the Tuk Tuk, the traditional Asian street taxi. This is perfect for those that want something a little different from the typical British-themed offerings, and can be a great addition to Asian weddings.

Of course, those looking to hire something out of the ordinary can be expected to pay a little more than the standard photo booth hire available in the UK today, but top suppliers will make sure that you get your money's worth by delivering a design that is both highly functional and sure to wow your guests.

In all cases, make sure that your booth of choice offers all the features you are looking for – such as a green screen or a wind machine – before you book. These added extras can make all the difference when it comes to how much your guests enjoy using the booth at your event.
