WEDDING PHOTO ALBUMS

MODERN LAYFLAT PHOTO ALBUMS WITH FINE ART MATTE PAGES

The finer things in life are things we treat ourselves to on special occasions. Your wedding is definitely one of those occasions. The Coffee Table Book is excited to introduce our Fine Art Layflat Wedding Photo Albums which we consider to be one of those finer things in life.

The quality and luxurious feel of the Fine Art Album makes it the best wedding album on the market. We believe all married couples deserve to have one of these stunning fine art albums to showcase their wedding day memories.

Imagine yourself five even ten years into married life, when you realize life has flown by. Your kids are growing up fast. With a wedding album, you can easily reach for your coffee table wedding photo book and reminisce about where it all began.

The more time passes, you will appreciate that your wedding album is an investment and has become that priceless book you and your children will grow together as a family looking through.

We believe your album should be designed to sit on your coffee table to enjoy the memories with family and friends on a regular basis. So there are a number of tasteful cover options to ensure your album blends in with your home decor.

Fine Art Album Covers, Shapes & Sizes

The Fine Art Album is available in a variety of cover material and colours – Leather Covered AlbumsLinens & Silk Fabric Covered Albums and Albums with a Photo-Wrap Cover.

The genuine leathers come in two finishes – Premium and Classic Leathers. The Premium has the characteristics which you’d expect from a natural hide. Whereas the Classic has a stamped texture for a more uniform look.

The Premium Leathers come in the more traditional rustic browns and Raven is the black leather. The Classic Leathers have more colour choices with even some lovely pastels like the Blossom and Tiffany.

The Linen fabric cover has a subtle woven texture and some of the natural linen tones have a slight colour variation in the woven thread for beautiful character which are by far couple’s most popular choice. There are many colours to choose from including neutral shades and bold vibrant colours for the more adventurous couples.

The Japanese Silk fabric has a random texture which is the charm of these gorgeous silks with a handful of beautiful colours to choice from to add a luxurious touch to your wedding album.

ALBUM DESIGN

We take the digital photos received from your photographer, select the best photos, then design beautiful storytelling layouts to fill the pages of your wedding album. We will adjust any exposure and colour corrections to the selected images that appear in the album. For retouching such as skin smoothing, removal of objects, etc is available at an extra cost.

Our approach to album design is modern and minimalist to let your wedding day moments breathe on the page and for the images to tell the story of your best day ever.

To give you an idea of how the album pages will be laid out, we tell the full story of the wedding day in the logical order by choosing the best images from each section of the day.

Depending on the number of photos supplied, we generally dedicate 2-5 spreads for each part of the day. Typically the ceremony, couples portraits and reception take up more spreads as there tends to be more photos and formalities from those parts of the day.

We break down the wedding day into these sections – groom prep, bride prep, ceremony, congratulations, family photos, couple portraits and bridal party location shoot, and reception. Typical most client albums end up somewhere between 30-40 spreads (60-80 pages) with a maximum of 45 spreads (90 pages).

It is hard to envisage what all the above will look like, but don’t stress, The Coffee Table Book has been designing wedding albums since 2006. It’s much easier once you see the album design laid out in front which comes together during the proofing stage.

We collaborate with our couples during the review process to ensure all their favourite and must-have photos are in the album design. Couples have the opportunity to swap, add and remove images as well as add and remove pages to ensure you are 100% happy with the design before it goes to print.

TURN AROUND TIMES

The first draft of your album design will typically be provided within 10 business days of receiving your images and deposit. This timeframe is subject to vary during peak times, for example the lead up to the Christmas and New Years holiday period.

We cannot guarantee a delivery time since the nature of designing an album requires feedback from the customer. So it depends on how quickly the customer gets back to us with changes, how many rounds of changes and the design being approved for printed.

From design approval, delivery takes 3-4 weeks. Because the fine art albums are in most part handmade, they are a labour-intensive product to manufacture and we will not rush the process to ensure the highest quality standards are meet.

The album design is printed with archival quality inks, then handbound utilising the highest quality craftsmanship in bookbinding techniques here in Australia and delivered to your door.

We include free delivery anywhere in Australia – Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Hobart, Launceston, Adelaide, Perth and Darwin including regional areas of New South Wales, Victoria, Queensland, Tasmania, South Australia, Western Australia and Northern Territory.

We also accept international orders and ship worldwide.

PRESENTATION BOXES

There are 2 styles of album boxes to store and keep the album looking pristine.

Choose between the Boutique Box or Slipcase.

Don’t want to add a Boutique Box or Slipcase? Not a problem.
Your album still comes packaged in a canvas bag and box.

The canvas bag comes in two colours – natural or black.
The colour is chosen by us and determined by the album cover choice.
For example, typically the darker album covers come with a black canvas bag
while the lighter coloured album covers come with a natural canvas bag.

The album and canvas bag is then packaged in a heavy-duty plain box
(again natural or black to suit) to protect the album from dust and light.

PARENT ALBUMS

Parent albums are also available with the purchase of the master album. Parent albums are an exact replica copy of the couple’s master album. Parent albums must be the same shape and either the same size or smaller. For example, if the couple’s master album is a horizontal 14×11, the parent album must be either a 14×11, 12×9 or 10×8. If the master album is a square 10×10, then the parent album must be either 10×10 or 8×8, but not the larger 12×12.
