BIRDIE is a unique photo booth experience in…wait for it… a marshmallow pink VW camper van!
Backdrops, props, snazzy technology – if you can name it, this photo booth has got it.
A self-contained, ready-to-roll shenanigan station. That’s right – they’ve kitted out a classic camper van and turned it into the retro talking point of any event or party.
After thirteen years as a Primary School teacher Kitty Orme decided it was time to leave her job in London and go back to her creative roots. She moved back to her home town of Chester and started to plan her next adventure.
Kitty had always had a passion for customising, styling and photography and so the idea of a camper van photo booth was born…or better still, hatched! On an icy cold day in January she was introduced to her new love; a 1978 bay window camper van who was rusting away under a blue plastic sheet in a hay barn. Kitty affectionately named her BIRDIE after they found chickens roosting in her engine bay. And so the BIRDIE PROJECT began… Alongside best friend and VW restorer Dave Johnston, they plotted the most amazing and unique camper van conversion, that not only could be used as a photo booth for weddings, festivals and events, but would be completely adaptable so BIRDIE could also rock as a mobile vintage stall, cinema, craft camper, retro candy or cocktail bar.
And soon after…along came BETTY, their classic Mini trailer, used as a magic Mini printer for BIRDIE.
