How To Create The Best Wedding Photo Album

Planning a wedding involves a lot of decision making which doesn’t stop after you’ve said: “I do”. Just like selecting your wedding venue, decor and dress, you’re spoiled for choice when it comes to designing your dream wedding album to celebrate your special day. 

It can be overwhelming trying to figure out the different options available, with a wide variety of bookbinding styles, print qualities and cover designs. So in this guide, we thought we’d make it easy for you by highlighting the different album choices. We’ll share with you who we think each album is best for and offer some insider tips for creating each album.

PREMIUM LAYFLAT WEDDING ALBUMS

Developed professional grade Fuji Crystal Archive DP II photo paper with thick layflat pages, our flush mount albums are at the premium end of our range. These luxury wedding albums are handcrafted using the very best materials, preserving the memories of your special day with the care these deserve. Choose from a range of premium options, including acrylic glass and genuine leather photo album covers. These albums can have a maximum of 76 pages and can hold up to 300 photos.
If you’re looking for a more subtle low sheen paper option, choose a Fine Art Wedding Album instead. The acid-free archival photo papers retain the tonality and hue of your images and are highly sought after by professional photographers and gallery exhibitions.
All premium albums can have a matching custom presentation box added to the order.

LAYFLAT WEDDING PHOTO ALBUMS

Offering great quality at an affordable price, these layflat wedding photo albums are a popular choice with many couples. Developed on silver halide photo paper which offers natural-looking skin tones and bold, bright colours, these albums are made to impress. Select between your choice of gloss or Pearl Matte paper for a non-reflective finish, these layflat pages allow for seamless, double-page spreads, without anything getting “lost” in the gutter.
Available in 5 different sizes, these large wedding albums can have a maximum of 120 pages and hold approximately 400 of your very favorite wedding photos. These albums are perfect for panoramic or wide-angle photos (planning a large bridal party?) that a single-page spread just can’t do justice to.

WEDDING PHOTO BOOKS

The most economical of the three options, a wedding photo book is digitally printed and PUR bound to a maximum of 244 pages and can accommodate upto 1,000 photos. Unlike the above two options where the pages lay flat, a photobook handles and feels like a professional coffee table book. Cover options include leather or linen in a variety of colours, as well as custom-designed photo covers featuring your favourite wedding image. If you had a large ceremony or can’t whittle down your photo selection, the high page count makes this the perfect option for you.

PARENT ALBUMS

Smaller duplicates of the main album, these make ideal gifts for your family or friends. Choose from a wide range of different options to meet your budget by selecting a different paper or even removing a few pages. PikPerfect’s wedding album design service will be happy to also customize each parent copy by making changes to focus on the different parents in each of the copies.

No matter which type of wedding album you choose, you’ll be able to take advantage of PikPerfect’s wedding album design service to help create your perfect wedding album. Our optional Photo Selection Service will help you to whittle down your image choice from thousands to just the absolute best, ensuring the finished product is one that you’re proud to showcase on your coffee table. With unlimited revisions for free and no advance payment required, PikPerfect makes sure you’re happy with the design before sending your album to print.
