Elegant and hand made wedding albums by Ian Arthur

Wedding Albums & Books

MADE IN SCOTLAND

PICTURES ARE FOREVER

 

When my parents got married 70 years ago they had a few black and white pictures taken outside the church by the local photographer. 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, I can sit down and look at my parents pictures, 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 disk, would the files still exist in 10 years time, let alone 30 years time? And if I had the digital files on a USB drive, would the technology even exist to see the pictures in 60 years time? And what if I lost the 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…

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 60 cover materials.

With their high quality photo-printed pages, thick pages and traditional album 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

Types of Albums

 

I offer two types of wedding album. Both have the designs printed onto photographic paper, and both are made in Scotland. The only difference is the size and the weight.

THE MINI-ALBUM

This is the mini-album. It measures 9x6 inches and the lightweight pages are bound into the album professionally so that the album when opens lays flat. The album is accompanied with a USB containing all your picture files and both the album and the USB are provides in a presentation box with recesses for the album and the box. The box and the album is covered in leatherette or linen, and you have over 60 materials to choose from.

THE ALBUM

This is a heavyweight album and there are several sizes of album available – either as rectangular or square albums. My designs are printed onto photographic paper then bonded onto card pages to make a heavyweight lay-flat album. The album and USB are provided in separate presentation boxes, and both in matching cover material of your choice, with over 60 materials to choose from.

Bespoke to You

 

My albums and books are made in Scotland using high quality materials and superb quality printing. 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.
