Fitness Vintage Guestbook - Handmade Wedding Guestbook

This couple love their fitness and they asked me to make their guestbook out of something that would show that, so I found this vintage copy of 'Fitness for the Average Man'. They also sent me some little notes and work-out plans to put in so that their guests can see how passionate they are about each other and fitness!

Mozart Wedding Guestbook - Handmade

I recently made this guestbook from a vintage book of Mozart sonatas. It was sent off to the U.S and this couple decided that, as well as keeping some of the original music scores in there, they wanted a few maps so that their guests could see some of their favourite places.

Charles Dickens Wedding Guestbook - Vintage Wedding Guest Book Ideas

I love LOVED making this special book for Simon & Simon, especially because I am also photographing their wedding too! They're getting married in Shropshire at Delbury Hall next month and it's going to be an absolute joy.

They wanted to pick a classic vintage novel for their starting point and what better author than Dickens. They then chose maps from their respective hometowns, as well as the city their son was born in to intersperse between the original pages and the blank ones. 

This is also the first guest book I've bound in a slight different way, making it stronger than ever. I've learnt a new technique which involves sawing into the book (as scary as it sounds!) and then laying in twine to help keep the pages together.

'The Bond of Love' Memory & Keepsake Wedding Guest book from Vintage Book

Since Lisa got in touch a few months back about creating a unusual wedding guest book for her wedding we had SO much back and forth about how to create something very personal and special for her and her fiancé. As our emails evolved Lisa sent me lots of bits and pieces to add into the book along with the original pages for their guests to look at, including ticket stubs, receipts, baby scans of their daughter and readings from their wedding.

Atlas Wedding Guestbook - Travel Themed Wedding Decor Ideas

“Looking for a guestbook for our wedding, I knew I didn’t want something bland and impersonal, or that wouldn’t be a meaningful keepsake. Getting something run-of-the-mill off the high street with calligraphy writing and lace on the front was totally not going to work!"
