The travelling photo booth set inside a unique VW camper van, ready to be the life and soul of any party,
event, wedding reception or festival. It makes a particularly stylish addition to corporate events too.

The bus comes with a selection of quality and quirky vintage props so guests can dress up and climb
aboard, where the automated photo booth system takes care of the rest. Printed photo strips can be
customised to suit any event so guests have a souvenir to take home, while a second copy can be put
in a guestbook along with a message – perfect for newly-weds to enjoy after the festivities have ended.

More on weddings: We love the idea of the photo strips being used as wedding favours, as we have
seen time and time again how people keep these on display in their homes for a long time; we think
it’s a perfect way for people to remember the joy and fun they had at your wedding! Classic cinema
tickets or cards can be left at place settings, which can let guests know that The Picture Bus will be
there after the meal for them to have their photo taken.

We have two packages aimed at private parties and wedding receptions, outlined below, but we’re
very excited to bring The Picture Bus to corporate events, fairs, and festivals, so get in touch to
discuss how we can create a bespoke package for you! Enquiries for The Picture Bus can be sent
to thepicturebus@retrosight.co.uk or phone Amy on 07877053199.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can The Picture Bus come to my wedding venue?
We hope so! We’ve been in contact with many venues and worked out whether The Picture Bus will be suitable there or not, so we’ve a pretty good idea. Some venues have the facility to let us bring the bus inside, and at others we can pull up just outside and be really handy for guests to come out to. Let us know what your venue is and we’ll advise from there.

If The Picture Bus is outdoors, what happens if it rains?
In this part of the world we all know how unpredictable the weather can be, and how important a plan B is. We have an awning/gazebo to shelter guests as they enter the bus, and we’re confident that a bit of rain won’t keep your guests from making a short dash from the door to the bus if necessary!

What if The Picture Bus isn’t suitable for my venue?
Never fear, an alternative is here! We have an indoor photo booth which is open-style with a choice of backdrop and all the same props that you get in the bus, and either printed photo strips and guestbook, or digital photos on disc for you to print or upload to social media. Click here for more details.

How far will The Picture Bus travel?
We love an adventure, and will be happy to travel anywhere in the north or south of Ireland. 30 miles from Bangor, Co. Down, is included in the price, and it’s £1 per mile beyond that.

How many prints are included?
As many as your guests can handle! We don’t like anyone going home empty-handed, so we’ll print a copy for each person/couple in the photo, and if you’ve opted for the guestbook then a copy goes in there for you, too.

Can I get digital copies of the photos?
For private events like weddings and parties, we can provide a USB for £15 or a download link free of charge. For pay-per-go at public events we do not save copies of images.

Can I have a themed selection of props?
Sure! We can source props to suit your theme for an additional fee, or you can provide your own – props are provided at your own risk, however, as we cannot vouch for their safety in the hands of the occasional over-enthusiastic guest!

Are drinks or food allowed in The Picture Bus?
In short, no. For the comfort of all guests, and for the smooth operating of equipment, we ask anyone entering the bus to leave food and drinks outside.

Can I book your camper van as transport for my wedding?
We’re afraid not – but there are some great companies with beautiful Volkswagen camper vans who would love to get you to the church on time. Check out Cloud 9, Legends, and Star Car Hire.

I have a VW camper van in need of TLC… who worked on yours?
Shane from Lawlors Customs is our man, and he could be yours! He’s amazing, and passionate about air-cooled engines and classic VW restorations. We can’t praise his skills and character enough!
