Common Questions About Beryl
Where will Beryl travel to?
Beryl is based in Witham, Essex. Because of the towing required it can take a while to for us to travel places. Our prices are based within 25 miles of Witham but of course if would like us to travel further and are willing to contribute to the added cost of this then we’d be happy to accommodate you.
How does the photo booth work?
Beryl is a fully automated photo booth. All your guests see is a screen and a big illuminated button. The screen will invite your guests to push the button and from there everything is automatic. A countdown will warn your guests before each photograph is taken and will display the images briefly before moving on. See our how it works page for more.
