When you think about wedding albums, chances are, you’re thinking the same thing I did before I started shooting weddings. Massive things with frills, tassels, tracing paper, and those ornate metal corner thingys.
Thankfully, things have changed!
Today, your wedding photos will look bloody fantastic in an album, and not a tassel in sight!
I use a wonderful company called Folio for all of my wedding albums, and rather than me try to bumble my way through telling you how amazing they are, here’s the founder, Stewart, to help you see why I love these albums so much!
"Thank you for our amazing wedding album! It looks incredible. We were both blown away by the quality of it. The spreads were so beautifully put together and really brought back the memories of the day."

For your main wedding album, you have two sizes to choose from; 10" x 10" and 12" x 12" and a whole range of gorgeous cover options and colours.
Your photos will appear on beautiful fine-art paper, and the album is made so that the pages lay flat. This means we can design your album so the photos go all the way across the crease of the page. It looks fantastic!
Prices start from £600, but they have a tasty discount on them if you book one of the album packages.
You just know that as soon as your folks see your main album they're going to want one of their own. So why not give them a little treat with these smaller replicas of your main album.
At 6" x 6", they're a perfect gift for your parents, siblings, or anyone close to you who'd love having a mini-version of your album so they can re-live the day and show off just how amazing it was!
A pair of these mini-albums are included in my top package, but can be added to any of the other packages for £250.
Didn't you know? Analogue is cool now! Vinyl, 35mm film, board games, and journals. After years of digital, we're starting to crave stuff we can hold in our hands. We're starting to appreciate craftsmanship again.
But not only are these albums a thing of beauty. They're the perfect way to turn your wedding photos from existing purely in a digital world, to something that you can hold and that will last a lifetime. Seeing your photos in one of these albums is something special. And it's something you'll want to share with everyone!
I often think about a time in the distant future when bored kids go rummaging in the loft and come across one of my couple's wedding albums. How amazing it will be to them to look through it and see natural photos of their relatives. Caught in the middle of a big laugh, or sharing a quiet happy tear with someone.
These aren't just books. They're the first heirloom of your new family.
For most people, this is the first time they've ever had a wedding album, so here's a look at the few simple steps involved.
1. You pick 30-40 of your favourite images using your online gallery.
2. I use your selections to design the initial layouts for your album, and add extra images here and there to make sure it flows nicely.
3. You receive a link to your digital album proof where you can view the layout and make comments about any changes you'd like to see.
4. You have a second look through the proof once I've made your changes, before giving it the green light.
5. I get the design over to the good folks at Folio, and 3-4 weeks later, you'll be holding your first family heirloom in your hands!
