A fun casino is a great addition to your wedding entertainment.

Fun casinos are fabulous icebreakers at a weddings. Many guests probably haven't ever met before and most probably won't have played casino tables either. So what a great way of bringing people together at your wedding while giving them a first time experience of a casino, without the risk of losing any money.

They will learn to play either Blackjack , Roulette, 3 card poker or wheel of fortune with in-game tutorials given to each player by our professional croupiers. They will play with free personalised fun money and they will be in with a chance of winning the first prize of a bottle of Champagne. We keep track of who the winning players are, and when the casino finishes we usually ask the DJ to announce them so they can come up to be presented with their prize.

The fun money can be handed out to players when the casino arrives to set up, or you can have it sent to you in advance. It can then either be put on the tables as an added favour or given to best man or bridesmaid to hand out.

Most people choose to have the fun casino open on the evening alongside the disco, around 7 or 8pm for a two or three hour slot. Another very popular time to have the fun casino open is in the late afternoon, during the gap between the wedding breakfast and evening entertainment. Quite often couples worry about keeping their guests entertained during this time and find it difficult to come up with ideas. Giant garden games always go down very well, weather permitting as do Magicians and Caricature artists.

Fun casino are strictly non gambling. No real money is handled at any time during the game. This makes it suitable for players under the age of 18 to have a go too. We have had many a winner from this younger age bracket, so we always have an alternative non alcoholic prize available.

We have taken our fun casino tables to many beautiful wedding venues, and most venues have had fun casino tables in them at some point, so space isn't usually a problem. If unsure you can check with your wedding coordinator to be on the safe side.

We always feel incredibly privileged to be a part of someone's special day and extremely lucky to visit so many stunning venues. If you would like any information about having a fun casino at your wedding we would love to hear from you!

Well what can I say. I knew our casino tables were beautiful and I knew our casino tables looked glamorous but I never expected them to be invited to a photoshoot at one of our favourite most sunning hotels in Bristol.

We often get complimented on how fabulous our casino tables look, We have a variety of colours including cream and burgundy blackjack and roulette tables.

These are very popular with clients booking a fun casino as wedding entertainment. We also have roulette, blackjack and 3 card poker in green. You can't go wrong with this traditional casino classic. We have Wheel of fortune and roulette in a glamorous rich red. Then the newest addition to our ever increasing fun casino is my personal favourite -Royal blue- black jack and roulette.

So how did we end up on a photoshoot? It all began at a wedding fayre with our cream and burgundy tables enjoying all of the interest and compliments that we are always thrilled to get, and we got talking to a lovely lady representing the Harbour hotel in Bristol.

This is a stunningly beautiful hotel and spa in Bristol dating back to c. 1850 originally home to two banks. Designed by William Bruce Gingell, and inspired by Sansovino’s 16th Century Library. The current decor is a delight and well worth a visit,

We mentioned that a client had booked us for a party at the hotel in December, how much we were looking forward to it and that it wouldn't be long until we met again!

While chatting away we asked if they ran their own wedding fayres at the Harbour hotel (which they do) and would it be possible to put our names down to exhibit there the next time a vacancy popped up? We exchanged email addresses and to my amazement a week later we received an email inviting us to exhibit our fun casino at their next wedding fayre and of course we leapt at the oppertunity and couldn't wait for the event to come round. Then a couple of days later I received another email asking if we would like to have our casino tables take part in a wedding photoshoot. I know! Its incredible! Of course we jumped at the chance. The shoot went well and everything was set out beautifully. We won't know until January if we have made the brochure, but even if we don't, the experience was an absolute joy. Fingers crossed I will be posting some glamorous casino shots in the new year.#watchthisspace #famousfuncasino #photoshoot #funcasino #bristolcasino #casinohire #blueblackjacktable #blueroulettetable #harbourhotel

Green roulette table with red carpet and stanchions at a party with a starlit background

We took our casino tables to a surprise 60th Birthday party last week and it was fabulous celebration!

We received the booking for this event quite early in the year and our mission was to supply the fun casino with some props to create a Bond theme night. We had lots of ideas and props to offer for the event, and after a few chats with Charlotte, who was organising the party, we knew what we would be taking with us.

The surprise was being held in Lechlade in a party tent provided by 'Party tents rock' (see the link below) and I have to say we were blown away by how amazing these party tents are. They come fully equipped with disco, lighting, bar and just about anything else that you might want to include at your party.

Charlotte booked one of our full sized roulette tables for the evening along with red carpet, stanchions, red velvet ropes and life size secret agent silhouettes. Everything looked perfect! We also supplied personalised fun money for the event. Charlotte sent a super picture to me, of the birthday boy, Richard, wearing white dinner jacket and bow tie; I used this in the design of the fun money and matched it to the colour scheme of black and gold. I sent a few examples of the fun money back for approval and once a favourite was chosen, we went to print.

All of the party guests were dressed to impress and helped to make the night a truly memorable experience. Everyone came over to join us at the roulette table armed with their fun money, and the casino was underway. We had two winner’s prizes up for grabs including a bottle of Champagne and a box of chocolates. Competition was tough, but after a couple of hours we had found our best players of the night.

They were presented with their prizes and it was sadly time for us to leave everyone to dance the night away.
