Fishee Designs Photo Booth Ltd

Emily Fisher

Why settle for any old Photo Booth when you can have the best Fishee in the pond!!?

Fishee Designs Photo Booth Ltd is the most unique Photo Booth I have ever come across. Emily Fisher, AKA Fishee, was adamant from the beginning, when first setting up the business, that she had to have a USP even though initially people didn’t really know what a Photo Booth was.  She stuck to her guns and continued with her vintage themed photo booth and now Photo Booths are all the rage and the market has been diluted her unique style stands out from the crowd.  With her individual take on the Photo Booth, Emily has carefully selected a range of props.  Starting out with the Vintage Shabby Chic style Photo Booth, Emily created a distinctive backdrop with a vintage prop box, including props such as vintage hats, ‘tash’s on sticks, old telephones, frames and much more.  Her trained eye in graphic design means that she edits every single photo with a Vintage border and sepia tones.

Having edited lots of Vintage style photos over and over during the first half of 2012, Emily felt she wanted to add a bit of diversity to her offerings for her customer base to keeps things fresh. She has always been a fan of artists such as Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol and had a love for comic book graphics and their bright colours, which inspired her to set up the Retro Comic Book Booth. With Props such as Superhero masks, Super-girl wigs and various comic signs on sticks, it was great contrast to the vintage feel with a bright yellow, white spotted backdrop and offered something for those brides wanting to add some vibrancy and colour to their big day.  Each photo is also post-edited, to look as if the guests have been transported into a comic book of their own.

Never one to follow trends, Emily likes to keep the business fresh and ahead of the game and has recently launched the Vintage Hollywood themed photo booth, which includes props such as famous actor and actresses masks-on-sticks, feather boas, Flapper girl head wear, velvet gloves, wigs and much more with a gorgeous red velvet backdrop adding that touch of red carpet, art deco glamour..  Each photo is edited with a unique art deco style border.

Having had much success with all Photo Booth styles, Emily is set to launch the latest in the range – The Rockabilly Booth - at the Weird and Wonderful Wedding World Show in April. Without giving too much away, she has created a incredible backdrop with beautiful rockabilly style fabric, together with a fantastic prop box such as tattoo sleeves, 50’s Style wigs and much more, but you will have to book your FREE registration to be able to come in and have immense fun in the Booth.

Emily can’t wait to meet you all and is very excited to launch her new concept Photo Booth!

One of the best parts of my job is turning some of this stuff into cake and creating one that gets talked about for a LONG time after the wedding. Not everyone remembers the 'white cake with flowers on' but they will sure remember an Alien vs Predator cake! I'm dead easy to get on with and no request is too fact the odder the better! If some of my designs are a little too much for your Grandma to handle we can compromise and do something subtle, just check out my sister site Little Cherry Cake Company.

Cake Top Characters

Cake Top Characters
07969 811 627

Why settle for a plastic cake topper that looks nothing like you, when you can have your very own wedding cake toppers expertly sculpted to depict you and your partner as the true individuals you are? Artist Cassie Lawrence specialises in making detailed caricature style toppers from clay, designed to look like you on your wedding day and to last forever. Cake Top Characters do not use moulds or generic pre-made bodies - every figure is completely bespoke and made to order to your exact details such as the suit, dress, bouquet and accessories. Everything from your buttonholes to your bridal jewellery will be carefully studied and uniquely created to reflect your day, and what makes your wedding special to you as a couple.

 Cassie sculpts the characters from the photos you supply, using non-toxic polymer clay and hand-painting the features for a unique finish. Props or costumes can also be added for a small extra cost that will help to make the toppers completely personal to you both. Do you have a theme? Is there a colour scheme running through your day? Perhaps you have a hobby, interest, occupation or quirk that can be represented in clay form. Cassie has sculpted a bride on a horse, a farming couple with their beloved cattle, surfer girls, skateboarding men, firefighters, shopaholic brides carrying designer bags and everything in between. Your imagination is the key to a topper that captures you. If you want your caricatures to speak for themselves and decide against props, no problem - it’s your day and your figures can be created to suit your signature style.

A wedding couple can take in excess of 30 hours to create and come with a base of your choice and an optional personalised message. Colours, fonts and detailing can be tailored to your look - Perhaps you have a sleek monochrome theme and would like a black and white base with script text; maybe your wedding is a gothic affair and you want a topper that matches your dark and sultry style; or perhaps you are a lover of all things vintage and opt for shabby chic text with lace or bunting? Whatever your look, your topper can be created to match it perfectly. The price also includes any extra details such as paper flowers, accents to the dress or outfit such as gemstones, chiffon, lace or pearls, which are carefully added one by one. The price also includes one small prop each such as a football or laptop, with larger additions such as a guitar, pet, or even your little one as a small extra. Please enquire for further details. The beauty of clay toppers is that they last forever as a memento of the special day and can be enjoyed for years to come.

Cake Top Characters can be posted safely across the UK and Ireland, with toppers traveling as far as Germany and the Middle East! Couples can also have their mini me's hand delivered across Mid and West Cornwall, with collection from the workshop in Trispen also available.

Guaranteed to create a crowd around the cake, your unique Cake Top Characters will be the talk of your wedding and will put a smile on your guests’ faces, long after your special day!
