A wedding is a momentous occasion, a celebration of love and commitment that deserves to be captured in a timeless and beautiful way. A wedding photo book is not just a collection of pictures; it's a tangible keepsake that preserves the magic of that special day.
In this article, we will explore the art of creating a picture-perfect wedding photo book, a cherished memento that can be enjoyed for years to come.
And remember, it’s never too late to encapsulate those precious moments in print, even if you find yourself celebrating your golden anniversary!
1. Select the Best Photos
The heart of any wedding photo book lies in the careful selection of photos.
It's not just about including the obvious moments like the first kiss or the exchange of vows; it's about telling the complete story.
Mix in candid shots that capture the raw emotions, detailed images that showcase the beauty of the venue, and key moments that define the day.
Don't shy away from incorporating black-and-white or sepia-toned photos for a touch of timeless elegance.
The goal is to create a visual narrative that transports you back to every nuance of that joyous occasion.
2. Design the Layout
Once you have your curated collection of photos, the next step is designing the layout of your wedding photo book.
Consider organizing the photos chronologically to reflect the flow of the day, or opt for a thematic arrangement that highlights specific aspects such as getting ready, the ceremony, and the reception.
Alternatively, embrace an artistic layout, creating a collage of many photos for a dynamic and visually engaging presentation.
If you’re not the creative type or are unsure how to design the layout, don’t become overwhelmed with this step. You can choose to create your wedding photo book with a printing service that offers templates and layouts you can use, making it easy to simply drag and drop your favourite images into the website’s design tool.
3. Add Personal Touches
Elevate your wedding photo book from a visual journey to a personalized narrative by adding meaningful touches.
Incorporate quotes that hold significance for you and your partner, include important dates and locations, and share anecdotes that bring a smile to your face.
These personal elements not only make the photo book uniquely yours but also add depth and intimacy to the captured memories.

With high-quality printing, a myriad of customization options, and a user-friendly design tool, we make the process seamless and enjoyable.
We offer three types of photo books: softcover, hardcover, and layflat. Although each of these have their own unique style and characteristics, their similarities include:
- Made in Canada
- Created using HP Indigo printing for sharp and accurate photo prints
- Eco-friendly, made with water-based non-toxic inks and green certified paper
Whichever type of photo book you choose, our design tool offers fully customizable templates and layouts, making it easy to create a wedding photo book that’s beautifully designed.
Here’s a quick look at each photo book type and what makes them unique.
Softcover Photo Book
The most economical option of the three, the Softcover Photo Book is a perfect way to preserve your memories without the bulk of a hardcover.
This is also a great option if you want to create smaller books. Unlike the other photo book types, these ones are available in sizes as small as 6”x6” and 6”x8”.
But don't let their budget-friendly price and small size fool you, they're still a premium-quality product that are made to last a lifetime.
Our Softcover Photo Books are professionally bound and made using sturdy 100-pound photo paper for a quality look and feel.
Hardcover Photo Book
Like the softcover option, our Hardcover Wedding Photo Books are professionally-bound with a custom-printed cover and are made using 100-pound photo paper.
This is a beautiful way to display your favourite photos from your special day on a shelf or coffee table.
The spine of the book can also be customized with your own text, so building a library of photo albums over time with various titles and themes can look great.
Layflat Photo Book
Quickly becoming a customer favourite, our newest style of photo book, the Layflat Wedding Photo Book, is like no other. If you are looking for the most premium way to turn your cherished photos into an album that you’ll adore forever, this is it.
Photos are printed on extra-thick 200-pound matte photo paper that will not bend or curl.
Because there is no gutter in the center of the book, pages lay flat when the book is open, so you can print one single image across two pages and it will look stunning.
Further adding to the appeal of our Layflat Wedding Photo Books is their cover style options. You can choose to have a leather, linen, or custom photo wrap cover. The leather cover is available in black, white, brown, or merlot.
The linen cover comes in five colour options: black, red, pacific blue, royal blue, and oatmeal.
