The event was in honour of one of their directors, Marton Sinclair. He was clearly very well thought of as 120 people attended the farewell gathering.

instax camera and guest book

Looking for a guestbook for your Instax Photos?


Well, well, well do we have a solution for your Instax photos!

Let us introduce our fabulous instax photo guestbooks, which, are not just guestbooks but albums too.

They are just perfect for any type of event where you have friends, family, workmates gathered to celebrate a special occasion.

From your Wedding to your besties 40th Birthday these books are perfect.

It doesn’t matter what occasion you're celebrating, grab an Instax photo guestbook, grab your Instax camera, some film and get snapping. As soon as those gorgeous photos pop out, you simply pop them in the book and have your guests write a message next to their photo.

Theses beautiful books are hand crafted by our artisan book binder. We LOVE NZ made, and love to support artisans who produce such wonderful works of art. Made with hands, enjoy watching these guestbooks fill up with photos and messages during your special event, whatever that might be.


Classic and classy, with its book cloth cover and solid brass chicago screws. It fits right in with any special event you would like to create, whether it be an Anniversary, Baby shower, graduation or an office leaving party.

I’m sure we don’t need to tell you what fun you could have taking your guestbook album on an adventure with a group of Hens out on the town! Maybe we ought to suggest a sober looker-after-er. Or maybe not, you could wake up the next day to discover some fabulous photo keepsakes of your hilarious night, combined with some interesting messages. And no need to worry about fiddling around with tricky little glue dots or glue sticks to secure the photos. There are little slits pre cut in the pages so you can safely tuck the photos in. Just like the old fashioned albums.

Our Instant Photo Guestbook has been designed to house the prints taken with a instax mini camera but we also have a square print version on the way.


The waiting is over!

These are fabulous gifts to yourself or someone about to celebrate an occasion worthy of recording in photos and words.

A beautiful, playful and thoughtful keepsake in an instant.

Aiden's 100th Day Celebration

Aiden's 100th Day Celebration

Aiden's Dad asked us to make him a 100 day celebration guestbook for a large gathering of family and friends at the stunning Footbridge Lodge which is a gorgeous secluded venue in the Bombay Hills.

Julia won a guestbook! Who else wants to win one?

Before we get into that, let’s start with a question:

What has my friend Liz, one of our guestbooks and Julia May got in common? 

Answer: They’ve all been to Wanaka, that’s what. Don’t worry, this was not the competition! It was just my way of introducing my favourite subject of the moment into the conversation! Wanaka. More importantly, a particular place in this town only 50 minutes drive from Queenstown, Peak Functions.

I recently shipped one of our guestbooks off to this drop dead gorgeous venue, I know this to be true thanks to the stunning photography on Peak Functions website (more about them in a moment). I wished so much to be making a gloved hand delivery myself to this town nestled on the southern shores of Lake Wanaka so hugely different to my hometown of Manchester! One day I will! I was relaxed just looking at the photographs, imagine actually living and working there!  Debbie and Mandy from Peak functions do and are very excited to be part of such a young but outstanding venue which is Wanakas premier, brand new conference and function centre.

Put a pause on looking through those bridal magazines for one moment….

No doubt you have considered many venues to feast your eyes on as a backdrop for your wedding. Now consider this, Peak Functions is centrally located, and unrivalled in both style and functionality – so their website shows me and can easily show you too. And now they can offer something extra to couples who are thinking about using their magnificent venue – *insert drum roll* …..A free voucher for one of our guestbooks when they sign on the dotted line (the contract to hire their facilities not the marriage certificate!).

At a recent expo based at Peak Functions, in which local wedding suppliers were invited to showcase their range of wedding products and services, we were so fortunate to have one of our guestbooks on display.  Between you and me and everyone reading this blog post, I was somewhat anxious, crossing everything that could be crossed hoping NZ post would get it there in time due to a short working week. I needn’t have worried, Auckland to Wanaka overnight - NZ post you rock! The beautifully framed Pohutukawa fingerprint guestbook was widely admired and set up so couples could easily envisage what it might look like at their own wedding. Julia May was the lucky winner at this event. And lucky to be living in such a stunning part of the world too.

We can solve your problem if you can’t make it to Wanaka anytime soon to visit Peak Functions…

As they will be coming to Auckland this weekend. Once again My Guestbook will be teaming up with them to give away a free guestbook when you visit them at The Lake Wanaka stand at the Bride and Groom show, at Ellerslie Racecourse.
