THE COOLEST WEDDING TREND — WEDDING PHOTO ZINES
These photo zines aren’t new — we have been publishing wedding magazines for couples since 2013, but over the last few years the idea of merging photographs and words to tell a more indepth story of the wedding day has grown exponentially.
YOUR WEDDING PHOTOS AS A MAGAZINE EDITORIAL
The wedding photo zines are designed like a magazine editorial with your photographs and meaningful words from your special day — your vows, speeches, the wedding party names, extracts from song lyrics as quotes, to vendor credits. Below are some pages from a recent wedding photo zine we designed for this gorgeous couple utilising their vows, speeches and vendor credits.
THE GLOSSY MAGAZINE JUST GOT BETTER!
As an alternative to the traditional photo album which have thicker pages, wedding photo zines are a softcover magazine-style photo book. The paper used for the cover and inside pages has a matte finish, just the cover is a thicker paper and laminated, for a sophisticated look and feel.
PHOTO ZINES FOR ALL KINDS OF WEDDINGS AND ELOPEMENTS
Not having a big wedding? Don’t worry these wedding photo zines come in 100 page, 200 page and 300 page editions. Making them the perfect keepsake for your engagement photos as well as elopements, intimate & micro weddings, non-traditional weddings, full day weddings as well as multiple-day cultural weddings.
A GORGEOUS ELOPEMENT PHOTO ZINE TO GET YOU INSPIRED
Below are some pages from an Elopement Photo Zine we created. This is a personal favourite of ours at The Coffee Table Book for many reasons. Stunning professional photography by Jon Gazzignato that shows not only beautiful photos of the loved-up couple, but the magnificent rustic homestead Thalia Haven and the epic wild coastal landscape of Great Oyster Bay off East Coast Tasmania.
The magazine design started with an acknowledgement to the indigenous land the couple were taking their vows on to set the scene, followed by some landscape photos to really get you situated in the location. Then pages of the couple getting ready in the photogenic stone and wood house and onto the outdoor ceremony where they were joined by their daughter. After that the couples location photoshoot around the property taking in the wild scenic views as the backdrop. Topping of the magical day with a feast in the house kitchen.

What are wedding magazines?
Wedding magazines are an alternative to a traditional wedding album. Often referred to as wedding zines, wedding magazine albums, wedding photo zines or wedding journals.
Where traditional wedding albums have thicker inner pages and a sturdy cover wrapped in either a leather or fabric material and seen as more of an heirloom album made of high quality materials for longevity and to last generations.
Wedding magazines are just that — a coffee table magazine — except full of your digital wedding photos and meaningful wording from your wedding day. The wedding ‘zines are designed in an editorial format with a softcover and photo book quality pages. Over time and repeated flicking through the pages, the likelihood that the magazines will end up with dog-eared corners is a given, but something we feel is part of the character of a coffee table magazine.
Are conventional wedding albums still relevant today?
Conventional wedding albums have definitely evolved over the last 10+ years since the beginning of the digital photography revolution and we can definitely tell you they are still hugely popular.
The Coffee Table Book has been designing wedding albums for couples since 2006 and printing wedding magazines since 2013 and can honestly vouch that couples are still printing their wedding photos in albums.
The Wedding Magazines aren’t better than the conventional wedding album, the zines are simply a different style of wedding album and a more budget–friendly option.
We dare you to take a peek inside our modern, cool photo albums to see just how they have evolved into a modern coffee table art book with timeless leather covers, gorgeous linen and silk fabrics, to velvet and suede or a photo wrapping your cover for a truly unique coffee table book.
