Why Wedding Albums Are a Must-Have for Every Couple

Let’s talk about wedding albums! The more time I spend looking at albums and designing them, the more I fall in love with them and appreciate their worth. I’d love to share with you a few reasons why I think wedding photo albums are so important. I really do think every couple should have a wedding album at home!

Your Dream Wedding Deserves an Album

You’ve spent so much time planning your dream wedding and choosing the perfect suppliers. You know that having awesome wedding photos is so important to you because you want to remember the day as you felt it. After the wedding, the only way to relive those special memories is through your photos, so why not think about how you want to display them and keep those memories alive?

The likelihood is that once the excitement has died down after the wedding, your photos will sit in your online gallery and eventually you’ll forget the password or just won’t be bothered to log in and look through them.

If you’re anything like me, you’ll save a few favourites in your phone and they’ll get lost amongst 23,028 dog photos in your camera roll.

If you’re super organised, they might make it onto a USB in the ‘man drawer’ in the kitchen or a hard drive in a box in a cupboard with your gas bills.

But if your parents or grandparents are married, I bet they know where their wedding album is! 

Your favourite moments deserve to be out on display, so showcase your photos in style with a stunning wedding album.

Why Invest in Your Own Wedding Album?

There are so many reasons to invest in a beautiful wedding photo album. Here are just a few to consider!

A personalised reflection of your wedding

With a wedding album, you have the ability to customise the design and layout and style it in a way that reflects your special day. You get to show off exactly what you want, with your favourite photos front and centre! Think of your wedding album as a highlight reel. Your favourite moments of the day will be beautifully laid out in a way that tells the story you want to tell.

A personalised wedding photo album really is the best way to keep your favourite memories alive.

A Great Way to Share Photos

You will be able to share your wedding photo album with your loved ones, some of which may not have made it to the wedding, so it’s a lovely way to make them feel extra special. Your family and friends won’t regret asking to see your wedding photos after looking at your photo album, but they will if you make them sit through a few hundred in your online gallery!

This beautiful keepsake will be ready to pass down to whoever you’d like, making it the perfect family heirloom. Also, when your memory fades, your photo album will be even more precious!

Artistic Value & Storytelling

A professionally designed wedding album is not just a collection of photos, it’s a work of art. The layout, design, and sequencing of the images are personalised to you so you’re getting a truly bespoke product.

Albums are a Stunning Physical Product

There’s nothing quite like having a physical reminder of your wedding day! We live in a digital age, which is fantastic for so many reasons but I think we’re all guilty of having thousands of photos online or on our phones, and hardly any of them ever see a printer.

I recently attended a venue open day and whilst I was chatting with everyone at my table, I noticed something really interesting about the way everyone chose to interact with my work. I noticed that everyone that came up to chat with me was immediately drawn in by the sample wedding album I had on my table. People enjoyed leafing through the pages so much and being able to read a story through the photos.

I had so many people say how great it was to see wedding photos laid out this way in something physical that you can touch.

Albums That Last a Lifetime

Not just a book! A professional wedding photo album is a high-quality product.

The album supplier I choose to use is Folio Albums simply because of their incredible quality and attention to detail. Handmade in the UK, Folio’s albums are not just professional wedding albums, but fine art wedding albums.

Folio use the best quality materials, skills and modern techniques to produce their fine-art books. The photos are printed on high-quality fine art paper, which means the images will remain vibrant and won’t fade with age. Folio also work hard to ensure their company and processes are eco-friendly and sustainable which is another reason I’m so committed to them as an album supplier:

“Our products are beautiful and are crafted to last a lifetime, but not at the expense of the environment and its delicate global ecosystem. All our materials come from sustainable sources and, wherever possible, they’re also 100% recycled.”

Digital files can be lost or damaged over time, but a physical album will last for years to come. You never need to worry about losing access to your favourite photos, and as a bonus, you can look at them whenever you’re dusting your coffee table!
