Wedding Photography at Glenbervie House Hotel
Sharon & Steven’s Wedding Album

It’s been a while since I posted up a new album design for you guys, so putting that right today and delighted to be featuring Sharon & Steven’s album from their wedding at Glenbervie House last year.

For me, the wedding album is very much the culmination of everything that I do, and absolutely remains the best way to truly tell the story of the day.

For their album, the guys chose the classic “Original Wedding Book” from my lab, Graphistudio. The album itself was finished in dark green leather with their names & date raised and varnished in light grey. For the box, the guys had a butterfly theme on their day so I suggested that we might like to incorporate this into the design, which you can see below. The design was overlaid onto an ice grey cloud leather box, and then varnished and raised from the surface for a really effective look :-).

Wedding Photography at Hotel Colessio
Ashley & Anthony’s Wedding Album

For my second album design of the evening, this time around I’m totally delighted to be featuring Ashley & Anthony’s wedding at the Hotel Colessio last May, and, a bit like today, what a scorcher of a day it was :-).

For me, the wedding album is very much the culmination of everything that I do, and absolutely remains the best way to truly tell the story of the day.

For their album, the guys chose the very stylish “Young Book” from my lab, Graphistudio. The album itself featured the popular “crystal glance” picture cover with a white cloud leather binding. The box was also finished overall in white cloud leather and highlighted with my own signature grey “scroll” design which was raised and varnished for added impact.

The 48 pages of loveliness were finished off using Canon’s “lustre” paper :-).

Wedding Photography at Blair Castle
Debbie & Jamie’s Wedding Album

Wedding albums have been coming thick and fast of late and therefore, I’m delighted to be presenting the first of two new designs this evening, kicking off with Debbie & Jamie’s album from their wedding at Blair Castle last July. 

For me, the wedding album is very much the culmination of everything that I do, and absolutely remains the best way to truly tell the story of the day.

For their album, the guys went for the fabulous “Original Wedding Book” from my lab, Graphistudio. The album itself featured the popular “crystal glance” picture cover with a grey woven binding. The “Design Box” was finished in a smoke grey/ice grey cloud leather combination and highlighted with raised and varnished titles.

The huge 68 pages of loveliness were finished off using the very luxurious “pearl” paper :-).

Wedding Photography at 29 Glasgow
Kim & Dave’s Wedding Album

I have another new album design to share with you guys today – this time around featuring Kim & Dave’s fabulous day at 29 Glasgow back in May last year.

For me, the album is very much the culmination of everything that I do, and absolutely remains the best way to truly tell the story of your day, so naturally I’m always really pleased when couples decide to add an album to their wedding collection. 

For their album, the guys went for the very stylish “Young Book” from my lab, Graphistudio. The album itself featured a pink powder grey cloud leather cover with titles in smoke grey raised varnish. The box, also in cloud leather, was finished in smoke grey and highlighted with titles in raised and varnished pink powder grey to complement the album cover image.

The 60 pages of loveliness were finished off using Canon’s high definition lustre paper :-).

It’s always good to hear back from couples upon receiving their album so it was great when Kim dropped me a few lines as follows…

“Mike was a dream to work with from start to finish! We always knew what style of pictures we wanted and after Mike was recommended to me by a friend we thought he could deliver exactly what we were looking for, and he did not disappoint. From being there to answer any questions we had on the lead up to the big day, including a change of date and venue from us which was changed with no issues whatsoever, to being extremely professional and passionate but also relaxed on the day making everyone feel at ease, to our beautiful album, we could not recommend Mike enough.

Thank you so much for our amazing photos that we will spend many years looking back on and treasure x
