The “Ultimo” Collection…the “lowdown”…and a wee offer!

So I woke up this morning and the thought occurred to me, as it does, that it’s not always that easy to tell the differences between the wedding collections that I offer, especially the albums, just from the pdf brochure that I send out to all new potential couples. A bit more “blurb” is perhaps called for so that you lovely people can see exactly what you get, kicking off today with my top of the range “Ultimo” collection – full day coverage, a min. of 500 pictures from the day and an incredibly fully customisable album

And, in the hope that you choose to read on, I’m accompanying this with a limited offer exclusively on this collection, and you’ll find all the details at the end of this post :-).

The Coverage

All my collections include full day coverage, and the “Ultimo” is no exception. “Full day” coverage, photography speaking, runs from the latter stages of bridal prep through to the first four dances in the evening. Of course, I can start earlier and/or stay later if you wish but, in most cases the standard coverage is usually enough and this will cover bridal prep, groom’s prep (if logisitically possible), guests arriving, bride’s arrival, ceremony, family group shots, bride & groom session, speeches, cake cutting, dancing plus a whole ton of candid shots throughout the day.

I won’t cover too much more in this post as I’ve already written a piece for the blog on how I shoot the day and you can find that right here .

The Pictures

Once the wedding day’s over, with your permission, I’ll always pop a few quick preview pictures up on my Facebook page for you to have a look at and use as you wish…it’s always nice to have something straight away :-). Then, within a few weeks time, I’ll start working on all the pictures from the day to make them look as good as possible – I call it my “secret recipe” and every photographer will be different in this respect – it’s what make us stand out from each other I guess!.

I’ll always supply you with a minimum of 500 (often more) hi-res pictures which will be presented to you in a personal (password protected) online gallery, which is a great way for you to view all your pictures and also share this with family and friends of your choice. From within the gallery, you can then download and use your pictures as you choose…put them on social media, get them printed, put them on the wall…it’s totally up to you.

Of course, if you would prefer your pictures on a USB stick, then more than happy to oblige :-).

The Album

So this is where it gets very exciting!!! The main difference between all my wedding collections are the albums and the Ultimo collection comes with my top of the line Original Wedding Album from my lab of choice, Graphistudio in Italy. Guys, this is not just any old album…this is a 70 page 40cm x 30cm jaw dropping masterpiece…trust me, you’ll be blown away!

I’m a big fan of albums, even in this digital age where social media is king. There really is sill no better way to tell the story of your day than through a well put together wedding album, and I’ll work with you to ensure that’s exactly what we end up with.

You choose from a vast range of materials and colours – leathers, wood, cork, linen, maple, metal, woven material, suede, silk…a myriad of colours. Tons of different finishes on the paper as well – gloss, lustre, metallic, pearl, textured, smooth…Don’t worry, I have swatches of everything here in my office so pop round after the wedding, have a drink and just enjoy pulling everything together.

And, here’s the best bit, my lab also offer an exclusive enoblement programme, meaning you can pretty much come up with your own designs for both the cover of the album and the box, and it’s all included within the package cost! See the picture above, this was from a wedding that had a butterfly theme for the day, so we created a butterfly heart design for the cover of the box, which was varnished and raised up from the box itself…truly stunning.

Here’s a few more examples as, of course, pictures speak louder than words…

The butterfly heart design in full with a white cloud leather box. Heart design raised and varnished.

Box cover replicated the design of the table place name cards, again, raised and varnished from the background.

Satin metal cover with grey/white woven binding. Names & date raised and varnished in white.

Wooden cover with light grey maple binding.

Crystal Glance picture cover with brown woven spine and ribbon.

My own custom floral box design with grey text/design laid over a dark blue maple background.

Of course, these are just a few examples but the sky is, very much, the limit when it comes to the design – whatever you can dream up, the lab can get it done for you…and all albums come with a lifetime guarantee!

The Offer…An Amazing Opportunity!

So, here it is guys, as promised!

My top of the range “Ultimo” collection usually retails at £2500 but, I am currently making available five collections at a reduced price of £2000, so a big £500 saving. My usual standard booking fee of £300 is required to secure the date with the balance due one month before the wedding.

Plus, take up my “earlybird” payment option and you can actually save a wee bit more…just ask me for more details.

This really is an incredible opportunity guys to bag one of these collections at this cost, so do get in touch if you have any questions, want to check date availability, meet up and chat more and view the albums, or just go ahead and book…I’d love to hear from you…but do hurry as I expect these will be snapped up pretty quickly!
