I have another wedding album design to share with you today guys. This time, it's from Aimee & Joff's wedding at the fabulous Dunblane Hydro at the back end of last summer. The guys already have the album safe in their hands but, as usual, I like to share the design with you just so you can see the variety of the albums that I design and also to get a feel for the imagery across a full wedding day.

So guys, hot on the heels of yesterday's post, today I have another wedding album to share with you - this time, it's the proofs from Karen & Will's wedding last year at St. Mary's Church in Greenock and then on to the Lochgreen House Hotel in Troon for the reception. Honestly, there's been so many albums coming and going of late that the TNT courier will probably make it onto my Christmas card list next year!

As I've mentioned previously, and no harm in mentioning again, all my albums are now supplied solely by Graphistudio in Italy and the quality of the finish is amazing. Karen & Will chose a varnished cover for their album in metallized green (preumable to complement the colours on the wedding day - slap me down if I'm wrong guys). I'd not ordered one of these covers before but it looked fantastic so another one to add to my own samples.

Seriously well behind with blogging at the moment - in context, let me see, I have six weddings, one (soon to be three) pre-wedding shoots and half a dozen albums to blog for you. So, trying to put that right just now and today, I'm really pleased to share with you the album design from Shonagh & Andrew's wedding at Glenberview House earlier last year.

All my albums are now supplied solely by Graphistudio in Italy and I'm continually blown away by the quality they produce, and not forgetting all the amazing new designs they come out with - it's even been muted that they will be bringing out a range of tartans to adorn the back and spine of the album, so watch this space! Shonagh and Andrew opted for the steel grey leather cover with a die cut image insert and, not having ordered one of these before, I've got to say that it was beautiful...very classic - need to get myself one as a sample methinks. Also, I really need to start taking some photos of the albums before they leave me so you can get a feel for what they're like...note to self. The guys also ordered a couple of half size parent albums and, as a free gift from the lab, also received 30 "Mignon" books - tiny 6cm x 4cm copies of the main album, perfect for gits...and yes, that was centimetres and not inches...they really are that small.

Quick share for you today guys and I'm keeping my promise to blog a few more album designs and the latest one to leave the home studio a few days ago was for Briana & Brett and their wedding at the stunning Dundas Castle last year - and yes, I did say, last year. Sometimes, the process of getting the album just right can take a little bit of going back and forward and, of course, couples have a lot of other things to be getting on with as well, so wedding album design isn't always at the top of the tree. But, my view is, no matter how long it takes, better to get it right than end up with an album that you're never quite happy with.

The guys went for a big 40cm x 30cm Graphistudio album, added some extra pages and upgraded to the fantastic "crystal glance" cover and, as a wee bonus, the lab are giving out 30 "mignon" books with all albums up until December - tiny 6cm x 4cm copies of the main album - very cute!
