Simon & Yella

This arrived yesterday….

….and inside was a beautiful treasure that unfortunately I don’t get to keep, but Simon & Yella do!

This is their beautiful wedding album designed by me and put together by hand in Italy by the talented craftsmen at Graphistudio.

Simon and Yella went for a 30x30cm 32 double page book, with thick, matt laminated pages, using true photographic paper, all wrapped in leather with gold foil name de-bossing, and a recessed cover image to finish it all off.
They also chose the new image wrap presentation case, (which does it’s job perfectly), 4 parent books and 30 of the perfect little Mignons which are great to send with your thank you cards and maybe a magnifying glass!

In the back of the presentation case lives a secret area for a Disc printed by me,
The disk holds all of their polished images from the wedding album, the designed pages and a lowres version of everything for easily emailing or transferring to a mobile device. They also get all of the images in a high res version on a USB as standard from the wedding. Hand made leather Wedding Album.

The whole process has been fast paced with quick decisions, as before Christmas Graphistudio had some awesome offers, which enabled us to get a great discount. It did mean working to the wire  to get the discount and I was finalising the upload of the design on New Years Eve!

All of my album designs are bespoke and created in house. There are no templates used, and every image is individually placed to ensure your perfect story is told. Then we decide on who is going to build it!

Here are some of my favourite pages from the album

This treasure arrived at just the right time; Just when I was emailing them to say it was on it’s way, Simon called me and said that they would be off to Berlin at the end of the week.

I took delivery of the album, photographed it and hand delivered it all in the same day. It was a pleasure to watch them go through the album and see how happy it makes them both.
Knowing also that it has all worked out so Yella’s mum in Germany will get to see it and have her own copy hand delivered, is pretty awesome too.

I wish them all the best and you can see Simon & Yella’s full design below. If you are interested in finding out more about my album design and wedding photography services please feel free to get in touch!
