How is a Celebration Book created?

A celebration book will be treasured for generations

Your Celebration Book will be tailor made to your requirements and is guaranteed to be treasured for years to come.

We take enormous care that every book we create perfectly reflects the personality of the recipient or recipients and the occasion being celebrated, whether it’s a special birthday, anniversary, retirement or wedding.

Your Celebration Book can be entirely co-ordinated by us, so there will be very little work for you!


Birthday and Anniversary Celebration Books

These ‘This is your life’ type books cover the lives of the recipients from childhood through to adulthood. They celebrate achievements and relationships with family and friends.

They cover holidays, homes, cars, interests, hobbies, careers, christmas’s, children, grandchildren and family celebrations. They also include fascinating fact pages detailing events, music, films, cost of living etc. from the year of birth or year of marriage.

We can supply a template letter for you to send to potential contributors or we can contact friends and family on your behalf. Contributors then send material direct to us via e-mail or hard copy. Original photographs and documents are scanned and returned promptly. Alternatively, you can collate material yourself and send it to us in batches or in its entirety.

We then use our expertise to bring all the elements together to produce your stylish hard backed book in a presentation case.

A full black and white proof is supplied (by e-mail or hard copy) for final approval

Our hard backed books can be supplied in an elegant presentation case and any number of additional copies can be ordered for family and friends.

The books can be created as a surprise gift if required.

Retirement Celebration Books

Retirement Books are a wonderful way for companies to commemorate the career of a retiring colleague or boss. They are a perfect presentation gift.

Associates, friends and work colleagues from the UK and abroad can all have the opportunity to share their personal memories, reminisce and express their thanks and best wishes for the future.

These books provide a lasting bespoke souvenir for both a company and a retiring employee.


Wedding Celebration Books

These books are a wonderful way to bring family and friends together and provide a lasting souvenir of this very special occasion.

They will become a unique heirloom to pass down to children and grandchildren and a wonderful record of the important people in the couple’s lives. They also provide a wonderful opportunity to surprise the happy pair!

Your book will cover the life of the bride and groom as children, teenagers through to adulthood, covering school, university, travel and homes. It will also celebrate how the couple met and fell in love.

Friends and family are also invited to share memories, photos and funny stories and send their best wishes to the couple. Gift lists can be included.

The Wedding Celebration Book can also be used as a guest book with blank pages to fill in on the big day. This is a wonderful and unusual gift and a great display and talking point at the wedding reception.
