Loxley Bellissimo Perfetto and a lovely Styal Lodge wedding day
“Thank you so much for the album and for hand delivering it!! We love it! It really captures the whole day and brings it all back!”
Here we go again … another variation on the Fine Art book for you to enjoy. This time it’s the Loxley Bellissimo Perfetto digital wedding album. If you’ve browsed this site at all, you’ll realise that I like Loxley’s books. The printing is first class (you’d expect nothing less from a professional Pro photography lab), the range of sizes, cover options and finishes is huge. And they’re reasonably priced for the tremendous quality that they offer. The albums also come in a rather robust, very smart clamshell case (it wraps over the top, fastening with a magnetic clasp, stopping it from flapping open). It’s both neat, good looking and acts as protection from the book when it’s not being looked at. What’s not to love?
(By the way, if you are unsure of the difference between a Fine Art and digital album, have a look at this post).
I produced this album for Jen and Reuben after they got in touch with me only a few months after their spring wedding, which was shot by the rather talented Jonny Draper. (I’ve known Jonny for a few years now – a lovely guy and great photographer. Check out his website by following the link and you’ll see what I mean.)
The album was the ever popular twelve inch square shape with a sage green leather cover, containing Jen and Reuben’s choice of seventy photos from their big day. As you can see from the photos below, the design follows the rules that I observe in all my designs. I try to make each open page spread symmetrical. I use white space as borders to allow the photos to ‘breathe’ on the page (that is, I don’t want the layouts to look cramped). There’s a mix of key signature images that stand alone, or dominate a spread, and more democratic layouts, where several photos carry equal weight.
Big thanks to Jen and Reuben, and Jonny, without whom these images simply wouldn’t exist!
If you have a collection of wedding photos sitting on a USB, or inhabiting a dusty corner of your iPad, why don’t you get in touch to discuss having them transformed into a beautiful handmade wedding album? Not only a beautiful object to sit and look through, this technology is futureproof too!
