Hand-made in Scotland
These lay-flat albums are hand-made in Scotland and 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. The photo-pages are then bonded onto a single-core card pages, which are bound into the album cover, which can be covered with one of over 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. You can choose to include an album before the wedding or several weeks, months or after your wedding. It’s up to you..
Bespoke to You
Each album will have its own bespoke design, ensuring that your album is yours, truly yours and like no other.
When my parents got married 70 years ago they had three black and white pictures taken outside the church by the local photographer. When I got married 30 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 they were and see relatives who are long gone. I can also open my own album 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? And what if I lost the USB drive?
Because we live in a digital age I think many people look at wedding albums as being old fashioned. One of the great things about an album is that you dont need to plug it in to look at the pictures, it doesnt need updating and it’ll never get a virus. Its an analogue way of looking at pictures that will outlast any computer, laptop or phone.
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?
What better way to present your wonderful wedding day pictures than a high quality album with my bespoke design, and which you can show to your family and friends for many years to come.
Contemporary design with a traditional feel.
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.
