A Natural Linen Wedding Album Cover Perfectly Embodies This Italian Wedding

This Sydney couple chose to have a destination wedding in Tuscany, Italy. They were married in a charming Italian chateau with a stunning country landscape as the backdrop to there special day … the kind of wedding brides dream about!

We were privileged the couple chose us to ensure their wedding day memories were put down in print in one of our Fine Art Albums.

The couple chose the Linen album cover in colour Barley Grass along with Gold Foil stamping to personalise their names and the wedding location on the album cover.


They went with a contrasting Slipcase in colour Avocado. The natural linen album cover and green slipcase beautifully reference the Italian wedding venue, picking up the sandstone of the building and greenery of the surrounding landscape.


The couple also chose our most popular size the 14″x11″ horizontal album and ended up with 35 spreads (70 pages) to tell the wedding day story in print.

A beautiful keepsake they can enjoy for many years.


We like to design the pages where the images have space to breathe and tell the story of what was happening during that part of the wedding day.

Below are a few layouts from their wedding photo album.


Often professional photographers will only deliver your collection of wedding images in either colour or black & white (not both), so we don’t always have the colour images to work with.

We can convert the colour images to b&w so the full layout would be designed in all black & white, but sometimes you just want to use the colour version of the image. Then you have the issue that the other images that tell the story are only in black & white. And while technology has progressed, we cant yet convert b&w images into colour. Therefore our only option is to mix colour and black & white photos together (as pictured below).

We have come to appreciate mixing colour and b&w images by balancing them when designing the page layout, but what do you think? Tell us in the comments below.


Finishing the album with a drone photo overlooking the Tuscan chateau below just as the sun was setting behind the mountains in the distance. While this photo was not placed in the logical order of the wedding day, the couple requested this image be placed at the end of the album. We have to agree what a nice way to wrap up the wedding album.
