I just had to share this with you. I simply LOVE these couture memory books by La Belle Memoire!

Here's why:

This isn't just your usual photo album or scrapbook, this is a stunning keepsake. La Belle Memoire books tell you and/or your loved one's story. They can include contributions from you, your friends and family members such as photos, anecdotes, quotes, religious excerpts, poems, readings and even illustrations/doodles!

Being a bit of a bookworm, I adore the written word but I also adore beautiful, evocative photographs so combining the two in such a stylish way is a dream come true!

These bespoke books are the perfect gift/keepsake for all sorts of occasions but being a wedding blog, let's stick to the matrimonial options:

♥ A gift compiled by the bridesmaids for the hen, or the groomsmen for the groom, perhaps?

♥ An alternative to the traditional wedding photo album, a collection of sweet words and beautiful pictures depicting your wedding story. Just imagine, you could include photos of you as a couple, your engagement photos and your wedding photos (not only the professional shots but those taken by family members and friends as well!)

♥ A wedding anniversary gift (particularly 3rd anniversary as this is traditionally leather!) or imagine presenting it to parents/family members who have reached milestone anniversaries. It would be a ‘This is Your Life' moment and such a treasured gift.

{Zee's happily married parent's are approaching their 50th Anniversary in a few years and I think I've just found the perfect present!}

There are five different layout styles to choose from and each can be customised to your own colour theme, and personal elements can be added as you wish. Here are a couple of examples of layout styles:

You choose from a gorgeous selection of luxury leather hard back albums in a variety of colours and finishes. And the pages inside are yours to do with as you wish! With lots of support from the La Belle Memoire Team to bring your story together beautifully.

As La Belle Memoire say on their website It is so much more than a photo album. The thoughts, treasured mementos and messages from your friends and family become a manuscript to last a lifetime…We know that your book, your tribute, will be cherished and loved for a lifetime.

I should warn you, these books are not cheap (they start from £500) but I'd say they are worth every penny…
