Albums are for life

WEDDING ALBUMS

4 Reasons why i love wedding albums

01. They tell the story of your day

 

I love designing wedding albums. It is like completing the picture, the story of your wedding day. To have something tangible, physical that you can look at and relive those memories for years and years to come. My stunning Queensberry Wedding Albums are bespoke, handcrafted art pieces in their own right.

 

02. Reliving memories

 

My childhood memories do take me back to pouring over my Mum and Dad's wedding album on our Formica kitchen table. All black and white images, all beautifully printed and carefully placed by hand in a hardback album. Oh, the lovely conversations we had over that album when we were kids. Still to this day, whenever I am home visiting in New Zealand I pull out that album, plonk myself down on the sofa (the Formica table is long gone!) and chat with my parents about that special day in their lives.

 

03. Albums stand the test of time

 

Albums stand the test of time, don't they? They'll be around forever, however, can we can say the same for JPGs, USBs or any digital files? What will happen to these file formats in the future? Are we going to pass down, USBs, SD and CF cards to family and friends? Will the Facebook or Instagram images of your wedding day still be around in 20 years? Probably not. Technology and social media seem to change at lightning speed but the simple idea of printing out a photo and putting it in an album does stand the test of time.

 

04. A stunning art piece

 

Hands down the difference of viewing your photos in a beautiful, handcrafted album to viewing them on a screen or phone are incomparable. An album is a much more personal, emotive and intimate experience. Albums are such a time tested way of reliving the beautiful story of your wedding day. Albums are for life.

 

Queensberry Albums

 

My beautiful Queensberry albums are all lovingly hand made in New Zealand. Each one is individual and bespoke, depending on what options you decide on. They are a unique sensory experience. The touch of beautiful paper. The smell of luxury leather or silk. Each album uses the finest materials sourced from around the world.

4 Reasons why I love Queensberry Albums

01. Quality Materials

 

Genuine leather covers are Queensberry's speciality. They buy only the finest hides from Europe's leading suppliers, and selectively cut and process them to enhance their inherent quality. Along with their durability and luxurious handling qualities, it is the individuality of texture, grain, range marking and density that gives Queensberry’s leathers their appeal.

 

Queensberry’s linens, silks and buckrams are sourced from natural fibres. Cotton-based Buckrams have been the choice of bookbinders, publishers and libraries for many generations. Linens and Silks extend the range with colours and textures from across the spectrum — soft and delicate to vibrant show stoppers.

 

Queensberry's man-made materials are selected with an eye to their visual appeal, touch, durability and impact on the environment. Micro Leathers offer the same "touch and feel" as genuine leather, with beautiful textures and lovely colours. Faux Leathers are another vegan-friendly alternative to genuine leather and offer still more beautiful textures and colours.

 

The heart of every photographic product is the printed image and the stock it's printed on. Queensberry card and paper stocks are chosen for their quality, durability, appearance, and suitability for purpose. All are pH-buffered to ensure they remain acid-free over a lifetime. Printing equipment is carefully calibrated, managed and maintained to produce accurate colour and long-lasting prints.

 

02. High-tech but hand-made

 

Industrial processes work best if everyone buys the same. Queensberry's workflow is high-tech and their printing state of the art, but all their albums are handmade to order using traditional methods.
One-off, personalised and unique.

 

03. Sustainable

 

"Once-in-a-lifetime" products like Queensberry's have a vanishingly small impact compared to our everyday practices and purchases, but every little counts and surely the best possible reason to buy from the other side of the world is to buy the best! Queensberry is proudly based in New Zealand, a country where most energy comes from renewable resources, where workplace and environmental practices are carefully regulated, where their clean, green image is a source of national pride, and where their parliament almost unanimously committed to zero carbon emissions by 2050.

 

Queensberry is a family company, its products created by a close-knit team that cares. Because their products are handmade, they offer rewarding jobs to a skilled staff, many of whom have worked together for decades. They're proud to deliver a world-class product and proud to be part of a team that trust, respect and care for each other. And that’s precisely why we love working with them :-)

 

Queensberry understand that everything man-made impacts the environment, including their products. Their philosophy is to choose the best materials from the most trustworthy suppliers, to expend the least resources transforming them, and to minimise their carbon footprint. For example, their leathers are sourced from fine European suppliers, not just because they offer beautiful hides and continuity of supply, but because they care deeply about animal welfare. Similarly, their man-made, "vegan-friendly" micro leathers come from an environmentally responsible manufacturer, with no heavy metals, formaldehyde etc used in their production.

 

Queensberry closely monitor all production inputs and recycle all recyclable waste such as the silver from their Lab. Material scrap such as leather, paper and card is on-sold, recycled or donated. (Local schools and kindergartens love their offcuts!) Products are shipped in recycled/recyclable/compostable packaging wherever possible.

 

To ship their products Queensberry uses German logistics company DHL, which is committed to zero carbon emissions by 2050, and, by 2025, to a 50% Increase in carbon efficiency levels compared with 2007.

 

04. I just LOVE them!

 

Hands down the difference of viewing your photos in a beautiful, handcrafted album to viewing them on a screen or phone are incomparable. An album is a much more personal, emotive and intimate experience. Albums are such a time tested way of reliving the beautiful story of your wedding day. Albums are for life.
