Wedding Album Design In Essex Covering London And The Southeast

There’s nothing better than seeing your wedding photos in a beautifully hand crafted album rather than on a screen from a USB stick normally put away in a drawer somewhere and only viewed on rare occasions.

I offer a lovely range of storybook style wedding albums and coffee table books that are hand crafted by one of the leading album makers in the UK.

My albums and books are not only ideal for weddings but other memorable occasions too. They are printed at the highest quality and images can be printed with full double page spreads from edge to edge.

These albums are truly stunning and in this age of almost everything digital, I still believe a printed photo or album has its place, as a print can bring back happy memories of a particular moment as you catch a glimpse of it hanging on your wall. Just as a print can evoke emotions, an album not only keeps your precious photos safe but also becomes a family heirloom for you, your children and future generations to enjoy as they themselves get older.

There are lots of options to customise the size and style of your wedding album and below I have put together a small collection of popular choices for you to consider. Each album is presented in a protective cloth sleeve and presentation box.

As there are various options available, please get in touch for a full price list.
