Fabulous wedding photographs should be presented beautifully. My collection of books, all hand crafted in the UK, combine the best traditions of book binding with simple contemporary creative design. Entirely bespoke, you can add as many images and pages as you wish, finished in satin paper, buckram or leather, you choose. The pages are painstakingly colour managed by myself and the layouts are designed by a professional book designer, a very long way from drag and drop software.
My books are made in the same way as a beautifully finished classic novel, Bible or dictionary. Many trends have come and go over the years but I pick up the books and they are no different to how I finish them now. Classic, timeless and will never date.
TELL YOUR STORY
I work with you to put together a simple and classic design that will stand the test of time. Double page spreads for example need to be colour managed and therefore pleasing to the eye with no mix up of clashing strong colours or indeed coloured & b&w images on the same page, sharp key lines around images that line up perfectly across the double pages, full bleed images of those favourite images, careful inclusion of detail & generic shots in key places and an accurate flow, every wedding day is a story that has a beginning middle and end.
My books include many finishing touches to enhance them, such as fishtail ribbons, dust jackets, heritage buckram fabric, blocking and head and tail bands. Craft bindery also produces stunning bespoke presentation slipcases to protect your book.
Books are hand stitched and hand crafted using traditional materials. The on site craft binder has over 30 years of experience ensuring every detail is as elegant as your images.
