Lacey plum guest book

  • — Five-hinge binding
  • — Wedding gown lace
  • — 29 x 17 x 2 cms

This guest book incorporates many details from this couple’s wedding day: the beautiful lace trimming is an off-cut from the bride’s wedding gown; the motif on the endpapers and inscription is taken from the wedding invitation; the bookcloth and ribbon take inspiration from the overall colour scheme. All these elements come together making a highly personal guest book for their wedding.

The guest book is a five-hinge binding covered in a aubergine bookcloth. Coupled with plum ribbon and magenta motif, these colours complement each other and also the rich ivory paper within, creating a lavish memento from their wedding day.

As always, I handmade a customised slipcase to store the book. This will protect it from dust and light damage, ensuring that it lasts for decades to come.
