My Passions: Learning. Fun. Health. Family. Environment. Spirit. Travel. Relaxation. Connection. Creativity. Wealth. Business. Balance. Freedom. Music.

The First Thing People Notice About Me: My glasses & my smile. I got called glasses the other day at a coffee shop. "That's for glasses over there".

I Typically Spend My Leisure Time Doing: Sipping on lattes watching the world go by. Exploring Tasmania. Daydreaming. Researching/working on little side projects. Creating. Food & Wine. Going to the odd gig. Photography.

And Now Some Gratitude: After 16 years of wanting to relocate to Tasmania, Australia, from the mainland, I'm so happy and grateful that I can now call Tassie home. The friends I have made and the experiences Tasmania hold are everything that I dreamt of.

After creating a custom Tasmanian oak wedding guest registry for a friends brothers wedding I slowly began receiving enquiries from others after they asked around to find out 'who made that for you?' and 'where did you get that from?'. I guess you could say it reached the 'Tipping Point' as discussed in the same titled book by Malcolm Gladwell. It may not be the same kind of tipping point as Grosby Slippers experienced but it was enough for me to move my focus to expand and continue to make and create for others. I'm a passionate maker and creater. An entrepreneur, designer and safety advisor. I decided to combine the skill I had been fortunate to develop throughout my life along with my passion and strong desire to form: The Wedding Book Company.

And to you, hello and welcome.

Cara Talbot.

I offer the full refund option as I stand by my products 110%. I have strict quality requirements for any item that I create. Unless the item is perfect it does not leave my home studio.

When placing orders that are very close to the wedding date there is always the option to upgrade shipping, purchase the 'Rush My Order' option.

Frequently asked questions

What sizes do your guest books come in?

Guest book sizing is as follows:
Large page size = 210x297mm or 8.5x12" (A4 size)
Small pages size = 148x210mm or 8.3x5.8" (A5 size)
All listing clearly state the size of the item in both millimeters + inches to help you chose exactly what you need.

How many pages can I have? Are the page single sided or front + back or upside down or AHHHHH help me please!?

The page number available in each guest book (either 20, 40 or 55) are the actual number of pieces of paper within the guest book. If you ordered a 55 page guest book you actually get 110 sides of paper to write on.

I really don't want blank pages. Can I have them lined?

You sure can. My guest books generally come with blank pages but you can upgrade to have lined pages. Please purchase the 'Lined Pages Upgrade' along with your chosen guest book.

https://www.etsy.com/au/listing/483930548/lined-pages-for-guest-book-upgrade-only

I have the coolest logo for my wedding. Can you engrave it on the cover instead of one of your designs?

Of course! This is my favorite thing to do!! Please purchase the 'Supply Your Own Logo' listing along with your chosen guest book.
Link below:
https://www.etsy.com/au/listing/260848017/upgrage-supply-your-own-logo-custom?ref=shop_home_active_31\

Will it get to me in time?

This is the big question. As a very basic rule if you are within Australia the time it takes from placing your order to receiving your guest book can be up to 3 weeks with standard shipping. If external to Australia, it is approximately 4 weeks.
Saying that, i do offer shipping upgrades at an additional cost + I can rush orders through so if you are unsure please message me with your wedding date (or the date required if it's a destination wedding) + I can work out which method is going to be most cost effective for you to get it to you quickly + if indeed I can get it to you in time.

Does it have to be a wedding book? I'd like to use it as...... [insert word here]

You can use my books for what ever you chose. I market them as Wedding Guest Books but I'm happy to change the engraved text on the cover to anything. All of my engravings are text over one, two or three lines in which you can customise to whatever you would like.
If you would like to supply an image/text/logo I can also engrave this on the cover.

Where do I type the text that I want for my custom engraved cover?

If purchasing one of my books that come with the personalised engraving on the cover there is a section at checkout called 'notes to seller' where you can type in the details. Please double check the information provided prior to finalising your order. All information is copied + pasted from this text to avoid any typos.
