    Every newly married couple NEEDs this!

    We knew from the day we got engaged we didn't want a 'traditional' guestbook, as we wanted something we could see every single day in the house. We toyed with a few ideas, and then attended a Wedding Show and found Alternative Guestbook. WOW. From the moment we knew we HAD to have this. From start to finish Jamie & Rachael have been amazing, nothing has been too much trouble and the attention to detail is amazing. We even had a few guests draw some rather interesting shapes that wouldn't be suitable for the in-laws to see on the wall, Jamie and Rachael were amazing at turning these into normal messages for us that are now suitable for any age eyes! So don't worry if people have a few too many! Our finished frame is absolutely beautiful - Thanks SO much, would highly recommend and cannot wait to show our frame off to our friends and family. It really is a piece of art we will treasure forever. Mr and Mrs Coles x
