$200 non refundable deposit for all bookings.

Depending on when you cancel. All cancellations outside of 14 days you forfeit your $200 deposit as a cancellation fee.
Within 14 days of event no refund is given & you still owe us the balance of the full amount as this creates a financial loss for our business as we are unable to rebook other customers due to your booking being secure. (no exceptions) Cancellation of booking is only accepted in writing via email & will not be accepted by telephone.
Combination deals have slightly different terms & conditions ( please see combination pricing page for more details).
PLEASE NOTE ALL EXTRAS INCLUDING, ADD ONS, TRAVEL SURCHARGES, PUBLIC HOLIDAY SURCHARGES,  IS 100% REFUNDABLE IF CANCELLED AT ANY TIME.

Why do you charge a cancellation fee?
We need to charge a cancellation fee simply because other potential customers have been blocked from making a booking from the time that your booking was made which creates a loss for our business as your booking has been secured.

What if I am booking a DJ & a photo booth for the one venue? 
Providing you are booking the DJ & Photo booth as part of the combination deal you will only need to fill out 1 booking form. You will need to complete 2 separate bookings if you are booking DJ & photo booth for less than 5 hours as they are not part of a combination discount deal. A $200 non refundable deposit is required for both.
Do you have any hidden charges or undisclosed pricing? NO, we try and be as transparent as possible as everything is provided upfront on our website including booking terms & conditions. Just be aware of the free travel limits & also the meal to be provided to the DJ & or photo booth operator & you will be fine.

Do I need to provide the Photo Booth Assistant a meal on the night?
Generally yes & required for ALL evening bookings regardless of time & all day time bookings 4 hours or more. Your assistant cannot leave the venue for a meal break & is there for 2 hours before hand setting up & also last to leave for the night, this makes a full days/nights work. This is also fairly standard in the entertainment industry as ususlly everyone deserves a meal break in everyjob. It is also a show of goodwill & your assistant will appreciate it in return. A fed assistant is usually a happy assistant :) Please discuss further if this is an issue or you have concerns so other meal arrangements can be made. Also generally caterers can offer discount rates for mobile staff working at your event or in some cases provide free meals if prior arrangements are made. 

WHAT IS THE BEST WAY OF WORKING OUT MY ENTERTAINMENT BUDGET?

This is one area that sometimes you overlook & customers sadly want the cheapest price especially for a wedding & you end up with poor quality entertainment for your guests for the night.
Lets do the sums. On an average a 5 hour wedding Photo booth costs $695 (our price Gold or Platinum Package) for an average of 75 guests. that is less than $9.50 for each person for 5 hours of photo booth entertainment that will leave them with memories to take home that will last for ever.
Strangely enough some clients want to & will pay more for chair covering & decorations than entertainment (go Figure!). But in the many years to come guests will remember what a fun awesome time & the amazing entertainment you provided they had at your event & not what they ate or what colour the chair covers were.
It is such a great deal for a nights entertainment that you could also hire our with our DJ so your guests can have the most spectaculor nights entertainment that they will remember for ever.
