FINE ART WEDDING ALBUMS

A beautiful keepsake for the big moment in your life.

Fine Art Wedding Albums

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 Wedding Albums which we consider to be one of those finer things in life.

We love the quality and feel of the fine art album and think all newlyweds deserve to have one of these luxurious wedding albums to display their wedding day memories.

Imagine yourself 10 even 15 years down the married life path, when you realize life has flown by and your kids are growing up fast. With a wedding album, you can easily reach for your coffee table wedding book and reminisce about where it all began.

The more time passes, you will appreciate that your wedding album will become that priceless book your children grow up looking through to learn about their family.

ALBUM COVER OPTIONS

Personalisation – debossing photo album covers is one way to personalise your wedding album. Only available on leather and fabric covers. We have access to hundreds of fonts to personalise the cover of your album. We can custom design the cover with your names, wedding date or even words like “Happily Ever After”. There is also a choice of colour foils for the debossing – choose from blind (clear), gold, rose gold, silver, copper, turquoise, white and black. Here are some debossed leather albums and debossed linen albums.

ALBUM PAGES

The album pages are 1mm thick which gives the pages some stiffness and are archival quality to ensure longevity. The inks used also have an archival lifespan.

There are two paper finishes to choose from :

Fine Art Paper with a matte finish – comes standard with all albums. Fine Art paper is both timeless and modern. The matte finish does not reflect light sources making it easier to view the photos.

Lustre Photo Finish – optional, please specify when ordering otherwise the album will be supplied with Fine Art Paper. The smooth photo-finish paper does have a slight shine so depending on the angle of the page it may pick up some light and make it harder to view the photos – this is why the Fine Art Paper is our prefered paper stock.

 

ALBUM DESIGN

Our approach to design is modern and simplistic to showcase your images in a beautiful storytelling way to capture how your real wedding day unfolded.

To give you an idea of how the album will be laid out, we like to tell the full story of the wedding day in the logical order. Depending on the number of photos supplied, we will pick the best images from each section of the day. Generally 2-3 spreads for each part of the day, something like this:

groom preparation – groom details and getting ready (approximately 2 spreads)

pre-wedding portraits / groom – groom, groomsmen & parents (approximately 2-3 spreads)

bride preparation – bride details and getting ready (approximately 3 spreads)

pre-wedding portraits  / bride – bride, bridesmaids & parents (approximately 2-3 spreads)

pre-ceremony – venue location, groom with family and greeting guests (approximately 2-3 spreads)

ceremony – bride walking down the aisle, bride and groom at alter, readings, vows, rings, first kiss, signing of the register, walking back down the aisle as husband and wife (approximately 8 spreads)

congratulations – guests congratulating couple (typically 1 spread with a full page of smaller images)

group photo (1 spread)

family photos (typically 2 spreads, 1 spread for the bride’s family and the other spread for the groom’s family)

bridal party location shoot (typically 2-3 spreads)

bridal portraits (typically 3-4 spreads)

reception – reception details, entrance, speeches/toasts, cutting of the cake, first dance, candids of guests and dancing photos, as well as the atmosphere (6-8 spreads)

In most cases, couples realistically end up with a 60-90 page (30-45 spreads) wedding album.

It is hard to envisage what all the above will look like, but don’t stress, we have it covered. It’s much easier once you see the design laid out and comes together during the proofing stage.

 

TURN AROUND TIMES

The first draft of your wedding album design will generally be provided within 2 weeks of receiving your images and deposit. This timeframe is subject to vary during peak times such as Christmas and New Years holiday periods.

It’s hard to guarantee a delivery time since the nature of designing an album requires feedback from the customer. So it depends on how quickly customers make changes, how many rounds of changes and then approves the design for print. But from approval of the design delivery takes 3 weeks. Because the fine art albums are a labour intensive product to manufacture, we cannot rush the process.

 

PRESENTATION BOX

There are 2 styles of presentation boxes available to store your album and keep the album looking pristine for generations.

Choose between the Boutique Box or Slipcase.

If you do not add a presentation box, your album comes in a canvas bag. The canvas bags come in two colours, natural or black. The colour is chosen by us and determined by the album cover choice, for example, typically a darker album cover will come with a black canvas bag while lighter coloured album covers will typically come with a natural canvas bag. Then the album and bag is packaged in a heavy-duty plain cardboard 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 a replica copy of the master album in either the same size or smaller.  For example, if the 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 the parent album must be either 10×10 or 8×8, but not the larger 12×12.
