Why invest in a wedding album?
In a digital age where more photos are being taken than ever before but less than ever are actually being printed, you might ask yourself: should we invest in a printed wedding album?
Well, in our opinion there are many reasons to do so – not least, because every time we hand a beautiful printed wedding album to a client, they are absolutely overwhelmed with “how much better” it is in print when compared to viewing on a screen!
Aside from that though, let’s talk briefly about longevity for a moment. Have you ever leafed through your parent’s wedding photos or wedding album? Or the pictures your parents took of you and your siblings when you were young? They’re great aren’t they?! There really is nothing like handling real printed photographs and albums to really bring the memories back to us…
Now ask yourself: do you REALLY think in 30 years from now that your own children – or even your grandchildren – will use a USB to view pictures taken today? Will the pictures on your iphone xyz still be there? Will they even still be readable on a volatile media like a computer hard disc drive? If you’re lucky enough to have not yet had a hard drive or computer fail then trust me at some point you will. And if that’s where all your precious photos are… it’s not going to be funny!
But… a professionally printed, archival quality wedding album will keep your photos in glorious colour for years and years to come. I know from personal experience that it’s only via the really old photos I have of my own parents and family that I can really see how everybody was, way back in the day – and as the ones we love grow older or are no longer with us, these memories become ever more precious over the passage of time. Indeed, your own wedding album is how your own children will see how you and your loved ones were on your wedding day, in many years from now. In print. In a beautiful album… made to last a lifetime.
So really, the question should be: can I afford not to invest in a timeless wedding album that will preserve today’s memories for generations to come?

Our standard wedding albums: £500
There’s not much standard about our ‘standard’ wedding albums: a thoroughly modern book with simple lines, and a minimalist cover to perfectly complement the included presentation box, for an elegant look with a strong avant-garde taste. With 30 lush, thick page sides as standard (enough to fit 75 wedding photos, with options to add more) and internationally patented seamless binding, our albums lay perfectly flat when opened to allow a panoramic view of the entire spread – including any parts positioned over the seam. The result is an almost cinematic experience with attention to detail evident throughout.
Our luxury wedding albums: £750
Our luxury wedding albums also include the same thick page sides as standard, and open completely flat to allow us to print your pictures directly over the central seam with no loss of image disappearing into a central gutter. Our luxury album range also includes a superb range of beautiful cover options, from a more traditional leather, to metallic, or even our stunning acrylic covers featuring the image of your choice – and really need to be seen “in the flesh” to be truly appreciated!
Parent albums: £250 per pair
We also offer a range of beautiful parent albums which can be added to any wedding album order. All our parent albums feature the same photos and design layout as your main wedding album, in a smaller, hardbacked copy that makes the perfect for parents. If you’d like larger parent albums, or multiple copies, these can also be added if required.
If you’re ready to book your wedding photography and would like us to reserve your date for you, we offer a range of wedding album packages with different album credit amounts, so you can choose any combination of wedding album type, size, cover and/or parent albums combination after you’ve seen your wedding photos – so you’re not tied in to a specific album type before the wedding itself. Just visit our wedding packages and prices page for full details and prices. If you’d like to view our albums in person, we keep a range of sample albums at our home studio, which we’ll be happy to show you – just drop us a line to arrange a chat over a cuppa!
