Getting a great photographer to shoot your beautiful wedding day is one of the wedding day essentials. But what to do with the images afterwards? Getting them in print is so important.
Which is why today I am thrilled to be speaking with MILK Books, who create the most gorgeous photo books for their customers. They also let me try out the process myself and I was blown away. Not only by the super simple design process and speedy shipping. But by the book itself, it is the loveliest quality, thick heavy pages in a linen covered book with a special box to keep it in perfect condition. It is heavy and feels so luxe. I am over the moon with my Double White Photo Album filled with treasured family memories :-)
Anyway, take a look for yourself…
Hi MILK Books, could you firstly tell WWW readers a little bit about you?
MILK Tailor Made Books was created by PQ Blackwell to enable anyone to make their own printed and digital memoirs, photo books, and albums.
PQ Blackwell is an award-winning originator of internationally bestselling books, distinguished by their editorial excellence, design, and production quality.
Long before MILK became an online photo bookmaker, it was a highly successful publishing project founded on a touring exhibition of evocative photographs that portrayed human moments of intimacy, laughter and kinship from 164 countries.
What do you love/dislike about your job?
We love helping our customers to create stunning photo books. We don’t like it when things go wrong as they sometimes can when technology meets print but we always strive to supersede our customers’ expectations and print beautiful books.
How did you get into the wedding industry?
Having spent the past decade publishing beautiful illustrated books that have inspired and touched the hearts of people around the world, we decided that new technology had reached a point where we could draw together all that experience to help people experience the wonder and delight of making their own books – a pleasure that we have been lucky enough to experience throughout our working lives. MILK Books allows newlyweds to create their own exquisite wedding album with our software, designed by them and delivered to their door.
What do you aim to achieve for your clients?
We aim to offer our customers the ability to create their personal photo album that is beautifully designed and produced to stand the test of time, to give our customers a book that they will treasure and hand down through the generations.
“As photographers we want to capture and preserve our clients’ memories. A wedding book or album isn’t an investment in an item; it’s an investment in your existence, your memory, your story, future children, grandchildren, and every generation that follows after that. It is because of this (and if I’m honest, my desire to see my images in a MILK Book) that we’ve recently decided to offer MILK Photo Books and Albums to our clients.” Tania from Sadie & Co
WWW readers Anton and Carrie tied the knot on the 14th June 2014 holding their reception at Heathy Lea, Derbyshire. With a vision of a personal DIY wedding, they got crafting and creating their dream day.
There were home made1950s style bridesmaid dresses, the prettiest florals and delightful décor in the marquee.
Carrie looked beautiful in her romantic wedding gown which she wore with heart shoes and tousled hair, while Anton donned a dashing Paul Smith suit. There is just so much to adore about their day.
Thanks so very much to Shoot Photography for providing these divine images today.

Nicky and Toby had one of the most colourful wedding celebrations I have clapped my eyes on back in May. They held their ceremony at Great Dunmow Maltings followed by a back garden tipi reception beside the beautiful Essex countryside.
They hand crafted and coordinated much of the wedding themselves; there was a gorgeous apple tree bar serving pretty drinks, cans filled with wild flowers and hand stamped luggage tag place names. Oh and perhaps some of the best evening lighting ever.
Nicky looked divine in her Watters gown with pretty curled hair, while Toby looked dapper in Hugo Boss. Amaze.
Thanks so much to Kent Wedding Photographer, Jackson & Co Photography for sharing these glorious images today.

This week I completed something really special to me.
Around 20 months ago I decided I wanted to learn to crochet, so I set about finding a pattern and purchased wool and a crochet hook. After much experimenting and many a brilliant you-tube tutorial I cracked this square pattern and got to it.
I was determined to complete this project and after quite probably 80+ hours of stitching it’s now sitting in our baby’s cot ready to keep him cosy and safe.
Those of you who have yet to have your hen party are totally going to enjoy today’s feature. Why not share with your favourite girls and get excited or inspired about all things pretty.
I love how this shoot shows the girls getting ready together, looking utterly divine and enjoying a piece of cake at the end. Plus there are some beautiful florals and frocks.
Thanks so very much to Lato Photography for sending over these fantastic images today.
