The SmileStation photo booth

The image to the left is the incredibly hilarious SmileStation photo booth! As you can see, this is the main unit where the magic happens.

Your guests will stand between a backdrop and the SmileStation and interact with it using the touch screen monitor that is mounted on it.  It will take a series of 3 images in which your guests can use the many props we supply with every booking.  They then pose for the pictures, a postcard sized print (6″ x 4″) will be printed there and then for your guest along with a second print for the guestbook, which is also supplied with every booking.

Open Style Booth

You may have already noticed that this is an open style photo booth and NOT enclosed. We do have our reasons for running the SmileStation this way and we are positive that the pros outweigh the cons!

Our photo booth attendants help your guests between images passing over props and word boards between shots whilst ensuring your guests have the ultimate photo booth experience.  Further to this, more of your guests can comfortably get in the shot at the same time.

More about us and how we started

It all started when I, David Hartley photographed a wedding a number of years ago. I felt the wedding needed something extra on the night. I decided, with the happily married couple’s permission to set up a small photo booth. This was however with a small photo printer and minimal props that I had. It was a total blast and needless to say everyone loved it. And so began The SmileStation photo booth. 

The SmileStation photo booth is based in Castleford, West Yorkshire. We have been providing our services from Weddings through to Anniversaries for a number of years now and the feedback we have received from each and every booking has been amazing. Just check out our reviews and see for yourself what people have had to say about us.  Although we are based in Castleford we are able to travel further afield to entertain your guests for you. There may be a surcharge for locations further away than a 30 mile radius from Castleford. Just ask, I am sure we can work something out for you. 

The SmileStation photo booth uses the latest photo booth software and technology. This ensures you get The ULTIMATE photo booth experience. The SmileStation photo booth uses a professional Canon DSLR camera for pin sharp high quality photographs alongside the software, touchscreen monitor and a dye sub printer for instant prints. 

As you can expect the SmileStation photo booth comes with an array of quality props to use, from full masks to feather bowers, you name it. If your event needs any specific props, We try to meet that demand also for you. 

We also offer you FREE personalised design for your photographs based on the theme of your event, the colour scheme and your names.
