It has been a true pain in the butt for just about everyone across the planet.
Perhaps a few eskimo’s or people who enjoy zero human contact were left unscathed. But, for the rest of us who enjoy our over-priced smashed avo, hugs and freedom – this has been one Big. Fat. Low-point.
The Melbourne wedding industry’s venues, photographers, videographers, florists, entertainers and most importantly!! Our loved up couples! Have been hit somewhat harder than most.
Every week I receive countless emails from clients asking us ‘Can we change our date if the restrictions remain in place?’ – To which I throw my head back in an evil cackle, continue counting my pile of gold and make myself another homemade cocktail in my lockdown loungewear.
I’m kidding. (maybe not about the cocktail and loungewear part.) Every date change or cancelation causes us just as much Heartbreak (pun intended) as it does you.
Yes, you can change your date.
We don’t charge a fee for changing the date, and we won’t charge a fee for holding a tentative date (just incase!) either.
Wedding co-ordinators all over Melbourne are doing everything within their power to work within government restrictions to pull off the most amazing days for our beloved clients.
If it looks like your event will need to be postponed, we ask that you reach out to us with some tentative dates.
That way we can work together and have a better chance of ensuring your dream day goes ahead as planned.
We understand that for some people, the void of the “Covid Unknown” is too much of a stress to overlook or postpone. For some, the best option is to cancel your original plans. Maybe you’re moving on to bigger more exotic things and you’ve decided to elope on a cliffs edge as soon as borders open! Or perhaps you and yours have decided that a simple registry is all you need to make your special day perfect.
Whatever your circumstances, again, we’re with you.
Short answer – yes!
Long answer – we need to cover our butts too.
If you wish to cancel, you will receive a refund minus a 20% booking fee.
The booking fee simply covers costs we won’t get back on our end for staffing and credit card fees.
You chose your wedding vendors because you love what they have to offer, to give you the most memorable celebration possible.
We love you (our clients) because you allow us to run a business we’re proud of, full of fun, excitement and continual good times.
Let’s everyone, keep doing what we’re doing.
Loving each other.
Staying positive (and sane?).
Heartbreak Hotel are here for you every step of this crazy journey.
To help with suggestions for your wedding, to commiserate the loses we’re all experiencing, to share home made cocktails and what’s bingeworthy on Netflix.

Why is it a great idea to have a Photobooth at your Wedding? Good question!..
I want to give you just a few reasons why having a photobooth will be the icing on the wedding cake!
Seriously though, it is so good to entertain everyone at your wedding. The young and the old will enjoy a good photo session and trust me when I say, I have seen some crazy old cats get down and dirty in the booth over the years.
Having a photo booth will not only get the oldies out of their seats, but they will also be getting involved with the Gen Zers. And it’s so good to get more photos of all the family together. Especially those regrettable photos that will be stuck on your fridge for years!
Having a photobooth that prints out the images straight away, means your guests can take home a little keepsake from the wedding day. It’s always cool seeing photos stuck on the fridge for years to come and most guests don’t know it at the time, but they will actually have the chance to download the digital copy after the wedding as well. Which means sometimes they wish they kept it ‘G’ rated when taking the photos! Oops.
Another great reason to have a photobooth at your wedding is, it can add to the overall style of your reception styling! When we created Heartbreak Hotel, it was so important for us to have the most stylish photobooth set up in town. Every small detail has been thought of and you won’t see us dragging out an ugly table with a black tablecloth or $2 props for the junk store!
We wanted the booth to be on-trend, look incredible and actually add style to any wedding. We know how much effort goes into creating a beautiful reception and we don’t think that style should be compromised because of the photo booth.
We all love themes and when it comes to weddings, there is really no exceptions. Trust me when I say, I have seen a lot of RAD themes over the years. Sometimes it’s a more subtle theme, like “black tie & cocktail” or “complete vegan wedding”. Whatever your theme is, we can incorporate it into the booth in so many ways, including the backdrop, the print designs, the props and even the photobooth’s interface.
Having a killer set of photos of your nearest and dearest is worth it’s weight in gold. Especially when you get your guests to create you a guestbook at the wedding and they stick in their own fav photos and write you a little message. Guestbooks are seriously the best! And you won’t find any better than ours. We get ’em manufactured in the USA using nothing but the finest materials. That way you know it will actually last and of course, look good on your bookshelf!
That’s it! My five reasons why I think you need a photobooth at your wedding! If you have any suggestions for more reasons why you would have a photobooth at your wedding, please let us know in the comments!
Also, those middle photos are from our favourite wedding venue in Collingwood, Rupert on Rupert.
If you would like to get intouch, head over to our contact page.
We love Rupert on Rupert and it is definitely our favourite wedding venue in Melbourne. Tricia & Hieu had an extra special wedding and we were so lucky to be part of it. No detail was overlooked and we got to work with many of our favourite vendors in the industry, including wedding photographer Cassandra from Blossom Daisy Creative. She was so kind as to forward some amazing images on to us and now we get to share them with you!
The venue itself never needs much, it speaks for itself with the styling and details in each room, but this couple really worked with what was really there and just gave it the little extra WOW factor. The florals were out of this world, wrapping around the room and adding so much colour.
Pictured above in the far right corner, is our Gold sign we have for hire. We designed the seating chart and matched the wedding perfectly. We have two different sizes available and our in-house designer is on hand to make something AMAZING!
We chose the Gold Mermaid backdrop for this wedding because it really worked well with their theme of extra colour and gold accents throughout the venue. It also just looks great in photos!
And we had Jai as the booth attendant, also matching the wedding with his brightly floral tie.
We always love working with Tobi Tobi. You will find them on our “friends” page because they are just that good. Nothing is better than live music at a wedding! (Except for our photo-booth of course 😉
Once again we got to set up and get down at our favourite venue in Melbourne, Rupert on Rupert with the newlywed couple, Katherine & Andy. The venue was covered in class featuring Kat & Andy’s elegant custom wedding arbour as a backdrop for the photobooth, and our favourite print design to date, created by our talented in-house designer “By Leelou“. We even caught a sneaky photo of our legend of a booth attendant Sarah saving the night by keeping the arbour upright as things took off in the booth!
We have done so many weddings at Rupert on Rupert over the years and we never get bored of jamming out at that place. It’s seriously Collingwoods best wedding venue in our humble opinion. So it’s pretty lucky we find ourselves there almost every weekend… even when we are not working!
Rupert On Rupert in Collingwood is the perfect wedding venue for our Melbourne Photo Booth setup! We had the pleasure of bringing some fun and style to Steph & Dylan’s wedding over the weekend. We also got to work with some of our favourites in the wedding industry, including The Style Co.
The blue velvet backdrop and pink sparkle table worked a treat and really made the whole booth look like it was part of the venue.
