Ordering a Wedding Album

Instructions, information and helpful videos on how to order your Wedding Album

I’ve created this page to make ordering your wedding album as easy as possible. I’ve outlined every step of the process from selecting your favourite images all the way through to your album arriving at your front door. Hopefully the information below will give you a very clear idea of what to expect and how to ensure you get the perfect Album for you (I’ve even created a few walk-through videos to help with some of the steps). While going through the below steps, if you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to drop me a quick email.

If you need a reminder of what my Wedding Albums look like, their sizes and how much they cost, you can find all this informations on my Wedding Products Page.

Here are the main steps involved in the process with details on each one below (in red are the deadlines for delivery before):

  1. Select Your Favourite 80 Photos (option for more with additional spreads)
  2. Complete The Album Booking Form 
  3. Make Payment 
  4. Review Your Album Design & Provide Feedback
  5. Approve Your Final Album Design Before It Goes To Print

1. Selecting Your Favourite 80 Photos

Make a night of it! Book a night off in your diary where you can sit down with some nibbles and a glass of your favourite drink and go through your Wedding Photos. Having spoken to previous couples about the best way to make their selection they’ve all confirmed that this is the best way to do it. Not only does it give you a chance to relive your wedding day, but it also puts you in the right frame of mind to make the best selection possible. The purpose of your Wedding Album is to help you relive all the awesomeness of your wedding day by reminding you what it felt like to be there.

I recommend selecting 80 photos for your album which will be spread across your 40 page album. Some pages may have 1 photo on them, others may have 10. It varies based on the design that best tells the story of your wedding day. I may also add in a few more photos from your wedding if it helps with the story telling element. As detailed in step 4, you will get a chance to fully review this design and make changes before your album is printed.

You can make your photo selection for your album using your Online Gallery. In your Online Gallery you will notice that in the top of each photo (when you hover your mouse over it) there is a heart icon. By clicking on this icon you can add the photo to a favourite list. The first time you select a photo you will be asked to create a favourite list (name it something like ‘Album Selection’). For every photo you want to go in your album, you just need to click on the heart icon and add it to the same list. I’ve created a walk-through video below to help illustrate the process.

2. Complete the Album Ordering Form

The below form captures all the information I need to design your Wedding Album and gives you the opportunity to order Parent Albums and choose the cover colour for your album(s). It also highlights the Terms & Conditions of the process so that you know exactly what to expect.

3. Make Payment

Once I have received your completed Album Order Form I will send you and invoice for payment, based on your album choices. The payment is made via Bank Transfer (my account details will be at the bottom of the invoice). As soon as you have paid the invoice I will begin designing your Album.

4. Review Your Album Design & Provide Feedback

Once I have completed your Album Design (usually takes 2-3 weeks depending on my availability) I will send it to you for you to review via an online tool. This tool will allow you leave feedback on any pages or next to any photos where you may like changes made. To help you navigate the tool I have created a walk-through video below. Similar to when you selected your photos for the album, for this step i recommend you arrange a time to sit down together and go through your Album design in one sitting. Once you have provided your feedback I will redesign the layout of your Album to incorporate the changes.

Please note that you are given only one round of changes. During this round you can request as many changes as you like (most couples request very few changes, sometimes none). If you did want to make another round of changes, these would cost £100 per round. I take a lot of care in designing the layout of your Album to best tell the story of your wedding day. As such, each round of changes takes significant time, which is why I charge for additional rounds. To date, none of my couples have requested an extra round of changes.

5. Approve Your Final Album Design Before It Goes To Print

Once I’ve made any changes to your Album design that you’ve requested, I will send you back the design for final approval. As mentioned in the previous step. You only receive one round of changes so this is a check to ensure I’ve understood the changes you requested, not an opportunity to request more changes. If you did want an extra round of changes it would cost £100 per round.

After you confirm you are happy with the design I will send it to the printers and within 3-4 weeks (can vary based on time of year) your Wedding Album will be arriving at your front door.
