An extension of the face-in-hole concept, our Photo Wall is the perfect tool to create unforgettable photos at weddings, significant birthday parties and family gatherings. It creates a warm and cosy atmosphere by mimicking a vintage living room, complete with picture frames to allow guests to peer down from the wall as if they were paintings or old photographs!
For some reason it’s really, really funny to see your friends and relatives goofing about in picture frames, and the photos and videos you get are usually hilarious. The Photo Wall comes alive and it’s like something out of an old movie. We recommend a video or photo filter that makes the shots look grainy, like 1980’s VHS or 8mm film camera. Add a vintage soundtrack and you’ve got a classic film that family and guests can all enjoy!
To enhance the vintage living room feel, the Photo Wall comes with a set of vintage props: a mini chaise longue and some old distressed leather suitcases containing a variety of props like hats, glasses and handheld novelties for guests to improvise with.
The Wall comes with some actual pictures on frames (smaller than the ones your guests appear in), but you can replace them with real family photos of your own if you like. We’ve seen families and wedding guests screaming with laughter in the Photo Wall as they make up their own hi-jinks to amuse each other!
Here’s another photo of the Photo Wall in use, this time with our hand-held speech bubbles that offer another layer of visual fun to still photos. They can be wipe-clean if requested, so that your guests can write their own messages on them. We bundle them in with the Photo Wall for free so you can have maximum fun!

When you want to go big and make a real impact … a photo wall is the way to go.
What do we mean by a photo wall? Basically it’s an extra-large photo cutout board that goes beyond our standard sizes and makes for a bigger impact. Above is a pair of photo walls we made for the German Embassy in London, featuring the World Cup-winning German football teams. Guests at the event could step into the boots of star players for a photo not to be missed!
These oversized boards can dominate a function room or even an outdoor event because they are taller and wider than usual and can be seen from further away. There’s no danger of one of these getting lost in the crowd!
If your event calls for making a big visual splash, then call us on 08450 570321 for a quote on a giant photo wall!
We’ve used the concept of large boards in two other areas as well: the wedding photo wall and the National Self Portrait Gallery.
Wedding photo wall
This large board recreates a vintage living room and comes with a chest of props for guests to play about with for relaxed and genuine photo moments. There are large cutouts with picture frames for guests to be silly through. You can even hang your own photos on the rest of the wall to personalise it and make it feel like home. We even provide a chaise longue for the bride to drape herself on. It makes for some memorable wedding photos – much better than everybody standing in stiff poses!
National Self Portrait Gallery
Classic paintings from the 18th century to the present day are brought to life with a face-in-hole twist! The NSPG is a set of large photo wall boards that can be arranged like an art gallery. Here it is in use at the University of Cambridge. Your guests can become Henry VIII, the Mona Lisa, the Laughing Cavalier or a number of other famous paintings, just by putting their face in the hole! There are photo opportunities galore with the National Self Portrait Gallery, available to hire for events around the UK.
