BESPOKE WEDDING ALBUMS

From the beginning, I’ve sought out wedding albums for my clients that would showcase their wedding day story and do the wedding photographs justice; hand crafted products featuring expert craftsmanship that would stand the test of time.

Whether you’re looking for an affordable photo book, a designer Italian wedding album or traditional album in luxurious leather, you’ll find a personalised and bespoke service where your dream wedding album will be designed in collaboration with you.

Finally, a wedding album design service without compromise.

I design and supply albums from the worlds finest book & album companies, many of whom only supply to professional photographers including Graphistudio & Loxley Colour.

Grab a cuppa and browse the extensive portfolio of albums and get in touch to make your dream album a reality.

LUXURY AS STANDARD

I believe your wedding photos should be printed on only the finest materials and displayed without compromise. All of the fine art albums I supply are seamless in the centre (as shown above) to ensure no details are lost, with the printing being on acid free papers. All fine art wedding albums feature edge to edge printing, and have the options of leather or linen book covers.

The only limit is your imagination

Traditional matted albums are making a comeback, but the construction has changed from the methods used in your parents wedding album. In addition to a choice of printed surface (fine art or photographic paper?) There’s a huge choice of mats, page edgings and cover details that ensures you can have a wedding album that’s really personal.

The latest contemporary style of wedding albums have more of a book than album feel, and can be personalised using innovative printing technology that means any design can be printed on the cover or box. There’s no longer limitations on printed fonts, even the page edges can be printed in any colour you’d like.

I love seeing photos in print, and really love designing beautiful, personalised wedding albums and book. Because of that I do have a pretty huge selection of choices when it comes to albums and books, so I’ve put this page together to tell you a bit more about my wedding album design service, and how things work.

The Graphistudio Young Book

The Young Book is a new contemporary wedding album from industry leaders Graphistudio. The book features lay-flat photographic pages with no loss of detail at the centrefold. I recommend the optional matt finish for the pages for a crisp, contemporary feel.

My favourite aspect of this book is how you can combine the different elements to create something unique to you both and your wedding, whether that’s traditional colours, or something more alternative and quirky.

The box has a hinged lid with magnet closure, and is opened to reveal a book that takes all the best bits from the traditional wedding album, and presents them in a chic contemporary way. The thick pages are real photographic paper, with edge to edge printing and no loss of detail at the centrefold.

There’s a variety of leatherette, linen & other material finishes for both the book cover and box.

The box is also available in the same material options, with 28 ribbon colours to choose from.

First up in the gallery below is my Maple finish sample featuring the wedding of Becky & Ashley. The contrasting wood effect finish coordinates with their rusting, woodland, countryside wedding. The ribbon coordinates perfectly with the colours of the bridesmaid’s dresses.

Next up in my second Graphistudio Young Book sample is a Manchester city centre wedding with a completely different feel. Bright blue bridesmaids dresses, a black wedding dress, and the streets of the Northern Quarter are what you’ll find within this book, and the bold blue colour hints at the alternative feel of this wedding.

My third Graphistudio Young Book sample features the wedding of Jessica & Scott and is in a gorgeous ivory, which is a more traditional wedding colour. The box has baby pink highlights which coordinate with the baby pink bridesmaids dresses.

The Graphistudio Wedding Book

The Signature Album Collection features a choice of luxury Italian wedding albums in a classic or fine art style.
