The BIG 3-0 … a milestone in all of our lives.
Mine passed fairly quietly. My BIG 4-0 was more noteworthy as I decided to climb a mountain but I wouldn’t have minded being kidnapped and chauffered to a party like Barry – that lucky blighter!
Aw! All is forgiven! Barry & Meg in the photobooth!
Things were much more dramatic for local man Barry Rutherford… on his 30th birthday, poor old Barry was blindfolded and kidnapped by his wife Meg – our vivacious photo booth operator and hair stylist.
Meg had organised a surprise birthday party for him and as far as everyone knew – he had absolutely no idea!
Launceston Town Hall – another very popular photobooth venue!
Meg knew she had to have Barry’s party at Launceston Football Club so it was a no brainer, but there was loads of choice! There’s the Launceston Town Hall, Launceston Rugby Club, Strawberry Fields, Roadford Lake, Launceston Football Club, Launceston Golf Club and Trethorne Golf Club are among the many local venues available. Yellowbooth are based in the Launceston area and ideally situated for photo booth bookings here and in the south west – whether a wedding or as in Barry’s case, a 30th birthday party!
But I digress!
As Meg drove her imprisoned husband to the party venue she realized (being a footballer and a player for Launceston FC) that he was more than familiar with the journey from home to the Club and did her best to throw him off the scent.
Barry carries his school photo with pride in the photobooth! Sweet!
Being a playful kind of person, Meg enjoyed taking this opportunity to lead Barry astray! She zigzagged here there and everywhere so that Barry had no clue as to his destination where unbeknown to him, half of Launceston were waiting to shout out “SURPRISE!!!!” the moment he walked through the door.
With no clue where he was heading and of the reception awaiting him, Barry was amazed when the big surprise was revealed and an amazing time was had by all – inside and outside of the photo booth!
What happened next on this truly memorable night can be found online at the Yellowbooth gallery at our online gallery. Well done Meg for keeping it a surprise for over 2 months!
