OUR STORY

The Coffee Table Book was established back in 2006 when digital photography took over the world and professional photographers began delivering wedding photos as digital files on CDs. Making us the first Australian business to offer professional quality wedding albums direct to the general public without having to go through their photographer.

With all these CDs containing digital wedding photos being handed out, The Coffee Table Book was born out of a need for married couples to have the option to access high quality wedding albums other than through their wedding photographer.

Wedding photography has evolved over the years. We saw digital files being delivered via CD, then DVD and now USB and even digital delivery via some form of Cloud storage service or online photo gallery.

It’s such a tragedy that those precious memories you spent hard-earned money on, end up sitting on a media device in your draw gathering dust.

While the delivery of your wedding photos has changed, the opportunity to own your very own printed wedding photo album has not.

Wedding photo albums have evolved over the years! No more slip-in or stick-in albums. Our digitally printed Fine Art Wedding Albums are coffee-table worthy! We think of them more like a limited edition art book but with your photos! The professional quality albums use flat lay binding with a matte finish on the fine art paper makes viewing photos a true delight. The layflat style also provides uninterrupted photos spread across the full double-page spread.

We turn your wedding photos into beautiful handmade wedding photo albums to last a lifetime. Forget the traditional albums your parents or grandparents had that get hidden away in the cupboard because they are too big and bulky. Our albums are easily the best wedding photo albums in Australia and are more like a modern art book.

SINCE 2006

Did you know we printed our first custom Wedding Magazine back in 2013! Making The Coffee Table Book the original and first Australian business to produce a custom designed editorial-style wedding magazine for couples.

That’s right Lauren & Derek were our first couple to receive one back in 2013. They had no idea what to expect and we just asked them to trust us.

The concept of the Wedding Magazine was visualised in 2013 when we attended a trade show in the USA after seeing a softcover magazine-style photo book that delighted our hearts. We had been in love with photo books since they first popped on the scene around 2005 — and the entire reason around why The Coffee Table Book even began.

The photographer in me thought wouldn’t it be a great way for my couples to have their wedding day story told in a way that was more than just the photos laid out on a page as seen in a traditional wedding album. We wanted to produce a softcover book with photos and words — to include stories about the couple and their big day to capture more than just visually how the day unfolded, to include their vows, lyrics from the songs they walked down the aisle and danced too. The couple’s own magazine editorial!

A tangible keepsake that couple’s could leave on their coffee table to enjoy like a newsagent magazine such as Vogue, Peppermint, Frankie, etc. except all about their wedding day.

We love supporting local Australian businesses, and are proud to say that our Wedding Magazines are printed on home soil here in Australia plus they are printed on recycled paper stock.

But how is the Wedding Magazine different to Wedding Albums?

The first main difference is the magazine has a softcover in a thick paper stock with a beautiful photo on the cover compared to the albums having a much thicker sturdy cover wrapped in either leather, fabric or photo-wrapped.

The second main difference is the thickness of the pages. The magazines are printed on what is like a standard magazine paper stock whereas the albums are a thicker page that can’t be folded.

Due to the different materials used and manufacturing process to produce the Wedding Magazine, they cost less to produce and as an alternative wedding album option, why we can offer them at a more affordable price than the Fine Art Album.

The albums are also designed to display 100-250 of the best images from the wedding day. Whereas the magazine can hold hundreds of photos as well as include words – from song lyrics to stories about the couple, poems and their personal vows.

The Wedding Magazine is A4 Vertical (210mm x 297mm) and comes in either a 100 page, 200 page or 300 page magazine. The 100 page magazine is perfect for engagement photos and elopements. The 200 & 300 page magazines are perfect for sharing memories of the full wedding day from start to the time the couple depart under a blaze of sparklers.

The hardest part will be deciding if you want 1 copy or multiple copies so that you can share your special day with your parents, grandparents and bridal party! Oh and make sure you keep a spare or two for safekeeping.

One thing the Wedding Magazine and Fine Art Wedding Album have in common, they both are designed to be left on your coffee table to enjoy the memories regularly.
