Velvet Wedding Album by The Coffee Table Book Photo Albums & Books
 

The Velvet Wedding Album has an elegant shimmer and plush soft silky texture that maintains a luxurious feel when you hold it in your arms.

The velvet album cover is a modern take on a vintage photo album with romantic old world charm.

Imagine yourself five even ten years into married life, when you realize life is flying by fast. Your kids are almost teenagers. Reach for that wedding album on your coffee table and easily reminisce about where your family began.

 

The more time passes, hopefully you will appreciate that your wedding album is an investment for your family’s future generations.

The album has become that priceless book you and your kids sit around looking through together as a family, laughing at the fashions of the day, and telling stories of the day and who the various people are.

We believe your album should be designed to sit on your coffee table to enjoy the memories with loved ones on a regular basis. There is a variety of gorgeous velvet cover options to ensure your album blends in with your home decor.

If you can’t find a velvet colour that works, then try our leather or linen album covers.

PERSONALISING YOUR VELVET WEDDING ALBUM COVER

What makes our Velvet Wedding Albums truly unique is the personalisation. We can stamp your names, your initials, wedding date or any words on the front cover.

Due to the texture of the velvet, personalisation is only available in blind (clear) stamping. We also recommend a bold typeface as fine cursive fonts can get lost in the plush velvet.

We will custom design artwork for your album cover from our huge library of fonts. We also have a series of Album Cover Templates that would work perfectly on the velvet cover.

The Velvet Wedding Albums lay flat when open so the photos can be printed through the centre crease. This allows for uninterrupted panoramic landscape photos across the double-page spread and printed edge-to-edge. The photos are printed with archival-quality inks and on a fine art archival-grade thick paper stock with a timeless matte finish which helps reduce glare and reflections from overhead lighting to make viewing the photos more enjoyable.

14 GORGEOUS VELVET COLOURS

The colour palette includes your classic black and silver, along with rich jewel tones, soft pastels and bohemian vibes that include an olive green, rusty terracotta, muted gold and blush.

The colour of the velvet varies as the light dances across the surface from different angles, and for that reason the below digital swatches reflect the variation in the hue of these beautiful velvet colours.

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 TIME

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.
