WEDDING ALBUMS - BEAUTIFUL, CREATIVE AND MODERN ALBUMS

I love to see couples ordering wedding albums from me, as it still remains my favourite way of showcasing photographs.  I enjoy designing albums that are unique to every couple. I work with two professional album makers who only work with professional photographers. You won't find their albums on any high street.   This blog post is about one of the album choices that I offer - digital albums.

Digital album

My most popular album is a digital album, also sometimes known as a layflat or storybook album. These albums are made in the UK. All albums have a leather or leatherette cover, the pages are thick and lay flat enabling images to be printed across the spine from one edge of the page to the other so no image is obscured.

Album design

All albums are packaged in a presentation box and delivered direct to your home.  There are a few choices for you to make at the start of the process:

  • First choose your album size, either square 12x12 or landscape 12x16.
  • Choose the colour of your cover.
  • Decide on the style of cover you would like. Choose from 4 different options - Plain with your names embossed, photo cover, a metallic cover or acrylic glass front cover.
  • Choose matt, gloss or metallic printed paper
  • Choose between 60-100 images from your gallery for your album design. 

From here I will be able to design your album layout and send you a draft to approve, before sending the design to print. Orders generally take 4-5 to arrive from the date of ordering.

Duplicate 6x6 parent albums can be ordered at the same time as your main album. which make perfect gifts for family members.

QUEENSBERRY WEDDING ALBUMS - LUXURY HANDMADE ALBUMS

I waved goodbye to another beautiful Queensberry album this week as it was delivered to a client just in time for Christmas. It’s the wedding album of Kathleen and Martin who got married at the Prince Regent Hotel during the summer. Photographed and handmade with love and care. Queensberry are renowned for being the best album maker in the world. Made in New Zealand, they are luxurious both in look and feel.

Martin and Kathleen chose a 12Γ—12 Classic Matted album with a plum leather cover, mixing a selection of colour and black white images throughout. I love seeing my work in print. Whilst it is fine to have digital copies of images, it is no substitute for the love and care that goes into making an album, from the emotion that comes as pages are turned and fond memories evoked. Handing over a handmade album always puts a smile on my face.
