We suppose there is no way to entirely replicate the joy inspired by the multi-sensory nature of memories from your wedding day in an album, however we can do our best to provide a marriage of your treasured images and the other immaterial elements of your day; the emotion stirred by words spoken and the lasting elation sparked by music shared. By pairing your photos with vows, speeches, lyrics, poems and anything else of personal note, the Wedding Zine masterfully curated by Bow and Arbour comes that close to capturing the elusive nature of your memories.
The 200 pages are filled with exactly what matters, following a design process entirely guided by you and open for any revision before printing. Having said that, the designers are immensely talented and can be completely trusted with the curation if you so wish. Their composition process leaves plenty of opportunity to formulate how involved you would like to be in the design; from working closely with the designers and hand selecting each photograph, to uploading all your photos and leaving them to their craft.
It is in another league entirely to a traditional wedding album, thoughtfully compiling 250-400 photographs instead of the commonly expected 50, not to mention how the timeless aesthetic with which it is designed will forever tell the story of your love. Your zine will be made with archival paper stocks that are intended for a long and bright life, and given the practicality of such an accessible format, the paper bearing your memories will thrive under frequent and repeated use. Printed in Australia, the paper is environmentally certified and the dedicated designers at Bow and Arbour never cease the search for the pinnacle of paper stock quality. This means your treasured memories are certain to be printed upon the highest quality paper available and designed for the utmost longevity.
Bow and Arbour understand how important it is to be able to share this story with your loved ones and will print anywhere from 2 to 10 copies of your zine for both your safe keeping and for you to gift to those close to you. These zines become the bound representation of all the love and care that was invested into your wedding, and for this love to be in a format that can be both shared and physically cherished is priceless.
It is invaluable having such a complete collation of everything that made your day what it was simply the flick of a page away, and the breathtaking quality and design of Bow and Arbour’s work is trailblazing ahead of other traditional wedding albums. The zine is a beautifully crafted doorway through which you are able to relive every important element of your wedding day thanks to their seamless collaboration of visual and emotional media.
