As fans of anything gorgeous and paper based our little hearts skipped a beat when we stumbled upon Illustries last month.

The two ladies behind this gorgeous range of wedding albums (with a difference) are Emma Penrice and Samantha Neal. We chatted with Emma who told us that they started Illustries, using their already well honed skills as a graphic designer and copywriter, when she couldn’t find a unique way to keep her wedding memories out of a dusty storage box – and wow what a way!

These bespoke memory books combine photographs and words into one stunning memento from your big day. All the elements of your wedding are in there including vows, speeches, readings, messages and loads more – whatever you want included basically! What’s more every element of your wedding story layout can be chosen by you, from the colours to the graphics and of course the images. We just love this for a wedding album that is totally unique and pulls together everything in one coffee table book stunner.

Besides wedding albums they have other bespoke items such as tea towels, framed prints, posters and guest books so whizz over and take a look. Or if like me you’ve got a tatty wedding memory box and photo CD shoved in the loft pull it out and let Emma and Samantha work their magic!
