The location, the props and a killer background make or break the perfect photoshoot. For events, backdrops create the ideal opportunity to combine theme, colour and fabulous decor ideas in one show-stopping, crowd-pleasing focal point. With today's Covid restrictions and zoom get-togethers, documenting events to share virtually has become more important than ever ... and a stunning backdrop is one way to make sure your look is spectacular.
Capturing the special moments of your party is an absolute must. We always recommend hiring a professional photographer to take photos throughout the event. With the advent of superb cameras on every smart phone, party guests now also take their own shots and post them instantly. Designing a space for the perfect “selfie” creates the ideal location for your guests to take their own photos, to have fun and gives you a chance to capture the colour and theme of your special occasion.
If your venue has a rustic wood feature, a modern white brick wall or an outdoor area with a gorgeous green hedge, you can simply add in a few fun props like light-up marquee letters, a vintage couch or laser cut wording with your names or the party theme. But if you have to set the scene yourself, there are a multitude of options available. Flower walls are always in style and look marvellous in photos. Over the years we have created many floral backdrops such as a stunning pink paper flower wall, a crisp white oversized flower wall, as well as beautiful greenery and boxwood backgrounds. Walls of Balloons or Balloon Arches are a huge hit and also look fabulous in photos. If you are looking for something a little more theme-oriented a custom design printed on vinyl always hits the mark as does a Photo Booth Green Screen.
If these are not in your budget, there are some other creative and less expensive ways to help capture the moment. Think incredible paper fan walls or a DIY backdrop using a large foam board covered in tissue flowers, streamers, or even wallpaper. Set up white curtains or use old wooden doors with fairy lights or cover an old large plywood board with black chalkboard paint and write your own message.
Wedding, Sweet Sixteen, Bar/Bat Mitzvah, Baby Shower ... no matter what your next event, don't backdown from creating a show-stopping backdrop.
