Life hack: Two photo books in one
Registry office wedding in Switzerland and destination wedding on Majorca as a reversible book
A photo book captures an event’s most wonderful and exciting moments. But what can you do if you want just one album of two different but somehow related experiences? For example, with a registry office wedding and wedding reception at different times, with a holiday in two countries, for the annual winter and summer holiday or with a bachelor and hen party. We had exactly this challenge with the photo book for our Baerenhochzeit wedding. The civil ceremony was on 7 January, 2017 with a small gathering in Switzerland and the destination wedding party on Majorca was on 1 July, 2017 with relatives and friends. We solved the photo book problem with a simple life hack. In this blog we at Baerenhochzeit exclusively reveal to you how to do this!
Decisions regarding your ifolor photo book
Many may be asking why we didn’t just have the wedding photo book done by a photographer straight away. Our decision to create the Baerenhochzeit photo book ourselves was to enjoy revelling in the wonderful memories together once again. As a result, we were really able to express what the party was like, could accentuate what we wanted and laugh over one or two stories again.
It wasn’t easy at all to find the right provider in the jungle of photo books. We opted for ifolor because it is a Swiss provider with top quality photo books. After all, we wanted superb print quality and an outstanding finish for our unique day. The short delivery times were also a decisive factor for us. It must also be mentioned that despite the book being 120 pages and having a huge number of photos, the design software never crashed!
The best days of our life in one book
We are more than happy with the result, our gloss landscape photo book Premium A4 with hardback cover! The album tells the story of our winter civil ceremony with the wedding at the registry office, a photo shoot in the snow and brunch with 27 guests at home from one side. The other side takes the reader straight to Majorca in the summer on a traditional wine estate where we celebrated a get-together over paella and wine with 80 guests on Friday. The story of getting ready for the big day, the ceremony, the chilled barbecue and wild party at the sophisticated wedding finca on Saturday is told. Brunch on Sunday on a golf course with sea view and the photo shoot after the wedding at one of the most beautiful spots on Majorca round off the photo book. Our reversible book created with ifolor has become a fantastic and creative memento of our weddings in one practical book.
