Your wedding anniversary is approaching and you have no idea what to give as a present. Here is a list of the traditional and modern anniversary symbols to give you some great gift ideas for your husband or wife.

The first wedding anniversary is a pretty important one. Its been 12 months since that magical day where you both exchanged vows and committed yourselves to each other. Tradition says to give a gift of paper. A photographic print of the wedding day or a printed wedding album is always a great gesture as it reaffirms your love for each other and you get to relive the moments from your wedding day again. For the couples I have photographed, you can view my fine art album range here or if you aren’t a couple that was photographed by Deb Boots, check out The Coffee Table Book for their wonderful range of wedding albums.
