Elegant and hand made wedding albums by Ian Arthur

Wedding Albums & Books




When my parents got married 70 years ago they had three black and white pictures taken outside the church by the local photographer, then when I got married some 30-plus years ago we had a wedding photographer and we chose an album with 40 photographs. Okay, what’s so remarkable about that? Well, even though the style of photography is different, I can sit down and look at my parents pictures to see how young and in love they were and see relatives who are long gone. I can also open my own album, examine and enjoy every picture to re-live my day. I can even show my children the same pictures, and then one day they’ll even be able to show their children the same pictures.

So my question is – if I got married today and received my pictures as digital files on a USB, would those files still exist in 10 years time, let alone 35 years time? Would the technology even exist to see the pictures in 70 years time? And what if I lost the USB drive?

This is why I believe its vitally important for each couple to have an album, not only for the present, but also for the future. How are your children going to see their parents wedding day, and how are their children going to see their grandparents wedding day? More importantly, how are YOU going to remember your wedding day?

After getting married you’ll have all those wonderful wedding day pictures, so what better way to present your pictures than a high quality album  with my bespoke design, something that you can share with all your family and friends for many years to come. You can still choose to include a set of digital files if you want to – but like most things in life, that’s completely your choice…

My Albums


These lay-flat albums bridge the gap between the contemporary and the traditional. My bespoke design is printed onto Fuji Krystal archive photographic paper for the highest quality reproduction, and the printed pages are then bonded onto a single-core card pages, which are bound into the album cover with your choice of over 50 cover materials.

With their high quality photo-printed pages, thick pages and cover, these albums look and feel like a traditional album, but their content is much more bespoke and contemporary.

Bespoke wedding albums by Ian Arthur Photography

Bespoke to You


I offer two types of wedding album, which are made in Glasgow using high quality materials. The only difference is the size and the weight. Each album will have its own bespoke design, ensuring that your album is yours, truly yours and like no other. Whether you choose to include an album before or after your wedding is up to you, but when you do want an album, then I will just point you to a separate part of my website where you can see all the options and choose whatever you need.


The mini-album is a lay-flat album that measures 9×6 inches and is provided in a presentation box. The album and box can be covered in leatherette or linen, and with 50 materials to choose from, there’s a material there for everyone’s taste.  A USB drive sits in a small recess in the presentation box, which will contain all your individually edited picture files.


This is a heavyweight album and there are several sizes of album available – either as rectangular or square albums – which are provided in a presentation box.. My designs are printed onto photographic paper and then bonded onto thick card pages to make a heavyweight lay-flat album. The album and USB are covered in a matching material of your choice, with 50 materials to choose from.


Linen or Leatherette 



There lots of Wedding Photographers in Glasgow to choose from, but if you are looking for one with experience who captures weddings in a relaxed and elegant way, then you have come to the right place...!
