My own, perfected design!

Being professionally trained as a book binder/restorer I was able to design this album combining various techniques, making it perfect for it’s purpose. It looks professional, feels nice going through the pages and should last for decades if handled well. Each one is unique!

There were quite a few good reasons for designing my own album:

  • it looks much nicer
  • no empty pages, which would most likely happen if I used a ready made sketchbook.
  • I can chose the paper and it’s texture (it will influence the look of the sketches)
  • I can personalise the whole book for you
  • you can have a say in what sketches you would like me to include or exclude

Every sketchbook is UNIQUE!

Whether you like more sparkly or more subtle, natural design, something rustic, something wild or something simple, I personalise the sketchbook for you, matching the theme and the feel of your wedding or other event.

I make my own hand-made paper for the cover, or I can use almost any fabric. I can even include some suitable parts of decoration or confetti from your celebration! It makes it all the more special and personal.

Before I bind the sketchbook, I will send you watermarked images by email, so you can decide if there are any sketches you wouldn’t want included in your album. You can also have your sketches scanned and sent in high-resolution for an additional small fee.

When will your sketchbook be ready?

You should have your sketchbook within 10 days after the event the latest, unless we agreed otherwise or there is a valid reason (like having to order some specific materials you would like me to use).

Unless we arrange for a personal delivery, I will send it first class special delivery by Royal Mail, all tracked and insured.

Wedding sketching cake


Jana sketched at both my brother’s and sister’s weddings, and we we were all amazed by her superb work. The drawings are beautiful and touching, capturing the day moment by moment, and bringing it to life in a way that a camera could not. Every time we look at the images we are reminded of the emotion, the laughs and fun of the day. Jana was professional and discrete, yet managed to capture so many beautiful moments between family and friends. Her sense of calm, care and fun meant that she was a pleasure to work with, and the hardcover sketchbook in which the sketches were presented afterwards is a work of art in itself.
We are so happy with everything!
