storybook album cover from wedding at Gomersal Park Hotel

This particular storybook album has – as always – been designed not only with the bride and groom’s own choice of images from their wedding, but also as requested by them to have interesting backgrounds, rather than just standard plain white or black.  All the backgrounds are created  using pictures from the individual wedding , so all contribute to the unique aspect of each and every hand-designed page.  Hope you like it! xx Elaine (wedding photographer and storybook designer)

Confetti and Cuddles by the Wedding Car

I decided to turn the confetti pic into a black and white wedding photo, as although beautiful in colour too, it had too many different colours to hang together properly in the album.

Couple in love

Ah, aren't they a lovely couple!

I normally avoid green grass as a backdrop for wedding photos, as feel it tends to clash with most bride’s flowers and colouring, but in this case, by making use of the right patch of light,  and the bride’s unusual lemon roses, it very much suits Jodie and Scott’s relatively traditional wedding.

Gentle romance down by the hidden lake

The usually undemonstrative groom goes with the flow – even holding the wedding bouquet and laughing! The soft background behind these images elevate it from the ordinary to the extraordinary – with a subtle feeling of relaxation and gentle light.
