I’m just sending off a really lovely Chocolate Leather bound album to two super people, Sarah & David.
This is a classic album with a subtle twist, where the bespoke flexibility of the Queensberry product has enabled me to design the album to reflect the colours of the wedding and the intimacy of the day.
Their autumn wedding had a lovely bronze and orange theme, so the rich chocolate leather is perfect, and a softer option to black. The cover features a small image of the couple, and the colour theme is carried through with ivory mats and the photographs mounted onto chocolate pages.
On this first right hand page, instead of a traditional ‘title’ I mounted Sarah & David’s wedding invitation into the square space – so just a thin cholcolate border shows – and then placed three small square images taken from different sections of Sarah’s bouquet, as accents underneath.
The wedding at the Mandarin Oriental Hotel in Hyde Park, London, was an intimate affair for close family and friends. The album relects this, in particular on the pages featuring the speeches where, using the option to include a ‘flip’ page, we can see both the Bride’s speech and the whole speech sequence all at once. Capturing the reaction of guests during this time is one of my favourite parts of any wedding.
