We like to make each album that leaves our workshop an individual one. Our bespoke service is all about customisation, after all, as we believe that no two weddings are completely alike. The process which we follow, however, is adaptable to each album. Here, we walk you through a typical journey from initial contact to finally receiving your beautiful, bespoke photo album at your doorstep. We typically turn around our albums in 10-15 days after agreeing your design. We usually can design your album within 5 days from image submission.
A Little Bigger
We strive to make each album that leaves our workshop an individual one, tailored to our clients needs. Choose from an array of sizes that are popular with our clients. Available in Landscape & Portrait formats in a selection of colours, from traditional to modern.
Short Story or Novel?
Not all albums are the same length. Many of our clients like to include a plethora of images making sure everybody is included as much as possible, whilst others prefer a shorter album that focuses on only their favourite shots in a carefully selective process. All of our albums are adjustable to include the number of photos you require.

Karen B, London
We have just received our wedding album and WOW! It looks so professional and is miles better than we ever imagined it could have been! Thanks guys!!
Harold S, Sheffield
My son and his new wife were on a fairly low budget and some of the photographers were asking for sums that simply weren’t realistic. We found Sterling Albums to be very reasonable and understanding. A fantastic alternative and as far as I can see no difference from a traditional album.

Sandip S, Brighton
We went for the Reportage range and it delivered as promised. You really get the impression that the staff take a lot of time choosing the images and it pays off. A+
I am a professional photographer in London and Sterling Albums has proven to be a very efficient and cost-effective outlet for my business. Never fail with delivery times or quality.

Thank you for the wedding album; we are very happy and came just in time for Christmas.
Make it Your Own
The finish of your album will completely alter its aesthetics. Choose from a simple leather wrap, crystal photo cover or a more dynamic metallic finish. If you’re not sure which of the options will work best for you, a member of our team will be more than happy to talk you through your options.
A Range of Colours
We have a range of vibrant colours available in our leather range, from the most popular black wrap to a more traditional red. If you’re not sure which of the options will work best for your wedding, give us a call and we can discuss. Alternatively, browse our gallery for ideas.
Bespoke Designs & Optional Retouching
We offer a bespoke album design service to our clients (5-10 day turnaround depending on the number of amendments) with and without image retouching. Providing a secure way for you to send us your images in several formats & sizes so our team can start creating your album. Google Drive and Dropbox are popular options for sending us your images or you can post them out to us on a CD or USB Drive. Alternatively, you can send us your own designs in high resolution PDF format if you use software such as Adobe® InDesign®.
This is your album and yours alone, so we want to encourage you to be as picky as possible. We offer a bespoke service which is all about creating the perfect product for each client. If you have very specific design ideas in mind, we want to hear about them.
Upon booking your design or album, initial payment will be taken to confirm the production of the item or items. Payment can be made either as a one-off upfront fee in its entirety or as a 50% deposit, with the final fee payable upon completion of the project.
Off to work
Having chosen your size, colour and added any unique specifications you may have, our highly skilled team of expert technicians will get to work on crafting your personalised album to your exact requirements.
Once our team are satisfied with the product they have created you will be updated with a first draft which will be made available for you to proof online. This will give you the chance to explore your album first-hand.
After receiving the first draft you will have the option to request any alterations you may feel would benefit the product, from changing your mind about the materials used to re-ordering certain photographs. Alternatively, if you’re content with the product, simply let our team know that they’ve done a good job and you’re happy to move on to the next stage.
The finished product
After liaising with the client a final draft will be sent via email for confirmation and simultaneously the album will be put forward for its final production. The finished product will match that of the final draft.
Following confirmation, your album will be processed and sent for printing, safely delivered within 10-15 working days. All you need to do then is sit down and enjoy the cherished memories of your special day.
