‘GOLDEN YEARS’

WEDDING ALBUMS & DESIGN

WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY IS AN INVESTMENT.

In a digital age, it’s easy to count on having our photos at hand on social media, stored away on a hard drive or *gasp* on our phones. We take so many photos and print so very few that we tend place such little value on them. I’m guilty of this too. You can imagine how many hard drives I have full of images waiting to be printed. So this last year, I’ve made a point of starting to print out photos from over the years, bit by bit. 

You’ll lose your phone, your hard drive may fail and you won’t be on Facebook forever. Hopefully not anyways. *shakes fist at Zuckerberg*

When it comes to wedding photography, you’d be forgiven for just wanting to go with digital images. At the beginning. But once you get your gallery, you’re going to want to see those babies in print. As beautiful as they are on screen, they’re given a whole new lease of life when the wedding album arrives in the post. There’s nothing quite like seeing the photos of your day in a stunning, professional album that will last your lifetime and then some. It’s all about the ‘Golden Years’; Social media is ok now and all but when you’re 60, I reckon pulling out a beaut of a wedding album to show the grandkids how hot and happenin’ you were, is infinitely preferable than showing them your Instagram. Will I even have Instagram when I’m 60? 🤔

THE ALBUMS

WE WILL WORK TOGETHER IN THE DESIGNING OF YOUR ALBUM TO MAKE SURE IT LOOKS ABSOLUTELY AMAZING!
You choose your favourite images, the album you would like and I will get to work on making up a mock layout of what your album will look like. Once you have looked over your layout, we can make any changes as you may wish and I’ll assist by making a few design suggestions of my own. Then it’s off to print! #lured

 

Both wedding albums start at 30 pages. You may find yourself wanting to add more pages to your album to give a fuller story of your day, which a lot of our couples tend to do! 

Below are the two main albums we offer. Both beautiful in their own right; they’re lovingly made with high quality covers and paper, ensuring they last your lifetime and beyond. We also offer smaller duplicates or ‘parent’ albums which you may wish to offer as gifts to your loved ones. 
Our ‘CHERRY PIE‘ storybook; the smaller of the two, comes in a 12″ x 8″  or 10″ x 10″ size with a pearly, lustre paper finish with the option of a linen or leatherette cover. You have the option to upgrade your linen or leatherette cover to leather for £50.
Our ‘DAMN FINE‘ art album is our biggest and most beautiful album at a glorious 14″ x 10″ or 12″ x 12″ size. The pages come in an exquisite cotton-smooth fine art paper. No shine and super beaut. Choose between a linen cover or a FREE leather upgrade!

ALBUM FEATURES

Both albums are digitally printed and come in a beautiful lay-flat, seamless style. This avoids the need for any breaks between images as you would find in a more traditional wedding album where the photos are printed and put behind mounts .You can even have one large image spread across two pages if you so wished!
We have a range of gorgeous covers and colour finishes for you to choose from, depending on the album you order. Our fine-art ‘Damn Fine’ album (as pictured) comes in a leather or linen finish. The album pictured is a leather finish in the colour ‘aqua’. And it’s a beaut!

Our ‘Cherry Pie‘ album comes in with a choice of leatherette or linen covers with the option to upgrade to leather! You can see more colour options on down the page.

Each album has a different paper finish. 
Our ‘Cherry Pie’ album has a lustre finish – though not glossy, it has a pearly shine to it.
Our ‘Damn Fine’ album comes with rich, cotton-smooth matte paper with zero shine. This one is our favourite. No surprise there. I’m a matte over shiny lipstick kinda gal.
Each album comes in a presentation box as pictured opposite. This ensures your wedding album stays in tip-top condition. We would always advise to store your albums flat as opposed to on it’s side. Over the years, it could cause the cover to get a bit smushed so the presentation box will help keep it as beautifully new as the day it arrived. 
We’re big fans of both albums. Depending on your desired finish, you can choose between the fine-art or lustre finish album. We have two lovely samples for you to have a look over. We can bring these with us when we have a wee catch up closer to the wedding day or anytime after if you’d like! They’re beauts in real life so just let us know if you fancy a jook!
Our ‘Parent Albums’ are beautiful smaller duplicates that can be used to give to parents or loved ones. ‘Parent Albums’ come in pairs in either leatherette or linen with the option to upgrade both albums to leather. Parent albums have to be ordered at the same time as the main album.
And for cute little ‘Keepsake’ books for your bridal party, siblings or friends, we have mini memory books that come in bundles of 5. The come in a press paper with a satin finish in a leatherette cover of your choice. Keepsake Books must be ordered with main album. Limited to 40 pages.
Below is a example mock up of a fuller wedding album. This album has double the pages, giving a fuller picture of the day! Have a flick through to get an idea of what your album could look like.

It is perfect for a sophisticated and refined finish to your album.

THINGS TO DO ONCE YOUR ORDER YOUR ALBUM:

  • Choose between 50-80 images on your online gallery
  • Choose which colour you would like
  • Decide if you would like your names printed on the front of your album in either UV printing, laser etching or debossing (only available with the Damn Fine Album)
  • If you decide to go for more than 30 pages or make any changes, we will invoice you the difference. All payments must be made before ordering. 
  • We will email you when your order is through so make note of the colour you would like your album in and whether you would like your name etched or printed on the album. We’ll get these details from you before the album goes to print. 

 

HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR IMAGES: 

To make your photo choices, log in to your personal online gallery and using the heart function over each image, choose up to 70 of your favourite images for me so I can get to work on your design. A normal 30 page album will fit approx 60 images. If you are happy to have the option of more pages, you can choose more for me with work with though I’d suggest no more than 90 images. We can work together to configure the layout and decide whether or not to keep all the images with extra pages or remove some to make the album look slicker.

Looking forward to making your album! ❤️
