Taking inspiration from Heather’s white polka dot wedding dress with a cute yellow petticoat, we created an album that was minimal in design, but full of character. They had a self portrait guestbook which went down a storm! Pawel’s sister drew a gorgeous fashionesque drawing of Heather – well we completely fell in love with it and asked her to draw one of Pawel too for the cover of the album! What do you think? Cute right?!
Ivory?! Pah! Red, black and leopard print made for a stunning, personality rich wedding and subsequently a unique, statement alternative wedding album! Emily&Phil made their own wedding stationery. Their invites were red cards with a square of faux leopard fur, each topped with handmade Fimo ‘sailor tattoo’ style heart and scroll, onto which Phil hand painted their names in traditional tattoo font. So we photographed it and with a little photoshopping, it sat beautifully on their album cover!
A sneaky little camera phone photo of the big reveal! Ahh!
We were so in love with Anna&Oliver’s handmade wedding invitations, that we photographed one and popped it on the front of their wedding album! It actually looks like we’ve just glued one on doesn’t it?! We continued the polka dot theme on the spreads and added a little floral illustration here and there to break it up! Cute right?!
“Penny and Martin came and met with us to discuss the design of our wedding album. Again their ideas were original and exactly what we wanted for our album. When the album arrived I was so pleased with it- it is exquisite and unique. It truly is something that Oli and I will treasure forever and I can’t thank Penny and Martin enough for that gift. In addition we purchased the parent albums as a Christmas present for our parents. They fell in love with these and were so pleased with the gift. The presentation was as always impeccable and the reason I fell in love with Penny and Martin.” Anna x
Emily&Simon had a grand Art Deco inspired wedding with touches of Punk awesomeness! The 20s ‘starburst’ was something they particularly wanted to feature in their album design, so Lucy edged each image with a Deco border in cappuccino which came to life against an intense black background.
Each of our alternative wedding albums come with a completely unique presentation bag, designed and handmade by the super-arty Denyse of Lupi-Lu Bag Boutique. Once she has the finished album in her hands, Denyse goes in search of the perfect complimentary fabric (usually a reclaimed item of clothing)! We particularly love the one featured here. With its ruffly, lace detailed exterior and contrasting bright, stripy lining, it provides the ultimate introduction for the wedding photos inside. Some bags are adorned with a bead, button, or trinket of some kind, but for others, simplicity is the key.
