Queensberry duo wedding album

Nothing compares to youuuuu…

Sinead had it right. Or at least, she would have done if she was singing about matted wedding albums.

Because I (virtually) travelled the world to find the best wedding albums, and, believe me, nothing compares to a Queensberry.

If you want the finest fancy-pants album, this is the one for you.

Matted album features

Matted albums might be the more traditional choice, but there’s nothing old-fashioned about these. Their clean contemporary lines make them classic and cool.

I think of a matted album as a ‘slow’ wedding album. The sumptuously thick pages encourage you to take your time and really savour each page. The downside is that they hold fewer pages – and photos – than the fine art books. But what the matted album lacks in numbers, it makes up for in style.

Each photo is a work of art in its own right. Two layers of mount make up each page. And the photo openings are cut into the top layer. But they’re cut slightly bigger than the photo. Then, once the photo is placed inside the opening, it has a subtle keyline around it (almost like a debossed border). It’s simply stunning.

And if you want, you can add in some un-matted sides where the photo completely fills the page. Which is great to make you stop and say “wow!” every now and then.

To match the traditional feel, your photos are printed on lustre photographic paper using traditional silver halide technology.

But while they’re special, they’re not showy. They’re a beautiful blank canvas that let your photos shine.

Interested in a matted photo album?

They’re available to all couples – whether I photographed your wedding or not – because everyone deserves to enjoy their photos printed and beautifully presented.
