Weddings and wallpaper – When squirrel met bear

As you know we love all things wallpaper.

So when a customer requested just one roll of Laroche in teal, I just had to ask why.

I always ask ‘why?’ because buying just one roll can be quite problematic further on down the track.

“I’m making a photo booth”.

Wow – she had me hooked.

“A photo booth? With wallpaper?’


Turns out the customer had started a company called ‘When squirrel met bear’  (I didn’t get round to asking about that one).  But take a look at some of their cool ideas

Based in Auckland and Timaru (it just keeps getting better and better) ‘When squirrel met bear’ specialises in custom made props and accessories for weddings and events. They really are the ultimate in gifting a certain kind of ‘uniqueness’ to a wedding or a bit of pizazz to an event. We all know that the devil is in the detail which makes these guys the best.

According to Abbe, the photobooth project had been in the pipeline for about six months. The raw wooden photo booth that had been completed for a couple of months was just sitting around waiting for the perfect wallpaper to finish the look….and presto in comes ‘The Inside’.

Abbe (creator and inventor of all great things at ‘When squirrel met bear’) was looking for a special kind of wallpaper she told me.
“As the photobooth will be hired and used at weddings and events, I want a very soft wallpaper with a floral print that will work with many different wedding palettes”.
She doesn’t want much does she?!!!?????!!
Oh well perfection is never easy, and with that in mind she trawled through our website and came up with Laroche in teal. I must admit it fitted the bill. The end result is that the photobooth is beautiful without being over powering.
Afterwards Abbe said “I was open to different colours, but as soon as I had seen the Laroche in teal I knew it was the perfect paper for the job and loved the teal with slight sheen and the strong floral pattern”.
At the moment the photobooth is for hire in Auckland only, set up a tripod and camera and guests can snap themselves or a photographer can take images throughout the event.

    security issues with my latest site and I would like to find
    something more secure. Do you have any recommendations?
