Lauren and Robbie’s ‘Terracotta Dream’ Backyard Boho Wedding in Florida by SJC Photography
Today I am taking you to sunny Florida for this gorgeous outdoor ‘Terracotta Dream‘ wedding. Lauren...
I’ve been writing this blog now for over 13 years, I have seen a lot of trends come ad go, great ideas and some not great! But recently I have come across the Audio Guest Book. I have been lucky enough to feature these audio guest books in a selection of my real weddings recently and I really like them, Even Nik my husband commented on what a good idea they are! So when I stumbled upon Calleo I knew I had to share them with you!
A Calleo Audio Guest Book phone is a Vintage Style telephone which records messages from your guests at your wedding…..isn’t that the best idea!! Written guest books can normally get looked over at a wedding unless someone is actually passing it round for people to write in, you will normally find this gets unused! However this Calleo audio version is not only a focal piece but so much fun!!! To hear the memories and emotion from your guests is a brilliant memento to keep after your wedding day. Your guest will have so much fun picking up the phone and leaving you a message, these can be sentimental, fun, or just down right silly!! Then you get to listen back to messages containing an embarrassing story, grandad’s sentimental words or your oldest school pals singing your favourite song.
With Calleo every voicemail left is compiled into your Audio Guest Book, which can be presented in various ways such as an Engraved USB or Vinyl Record. They also offer many styles of phones to match your themes ranging from our Lily (cream) to our Fern (green). You can see the audio guest books in action here and here.
What made you start your business?
Over the past few years, I have lost many close family members. I have photos and videos to remember those loved ones but I always knew there could be something more to cherish those special memories.
Most recently my friend and now CALLEO business partner experienced the loss of his Grandfather. They were immensely close and following his passing, the memory that was cherished the most was an old voicemail he received from his Grandfather. Remembering his voice and hearing him speak, despite him no longer being there to comfort him was comforting enough.
When I came to my friend with the idea of an Audio Guest Book, it resonated immediately. Having the chance to listen to all your family and friends on your special day for years to come – even during the tough moments when they will sadly no longer be with us. Now, we are both working heard on this innovative alternative to the written guest book.
When did you start?
What sort of geographical area do you cover?
How would you describe your style?
Hardworking, Quick and Fun.
What is your biggest achievement so far?
I have accomplished many achievements but most recently, I am particularly proud of a client’s story we shared, Corrine & Greg, who sadly lost their Grandfather just a few days after their wedding. Thanks to the message left on the CALLEO phone, they now get to hear his voice for the rest of their lives. Even so soon after launching, we already achieved a full circle moment where the very story that began the business, has impacted one of our couple’s lives the same way.
What do you enjoy most about your job?
Listening to all the messages our couple’s guests create! One moment you are tearing up at the sentimental voicemails and the next you are also tearing up but crying with laughter at the funny/drunken voicemails.
Can you give me some information on your pricing structure?
Priced from £299. 3 packages based on varying levels of presentation options and speed of delivery. More details linked here.
What can you never leave the house without?
My phone! Always need to stay connected to keep in touch with our wonderful customers.
Who would be your 5 dream dinner guests dead or alive?
Steve Jobs, Amelia Earhart, Elvis Presley, Barack Obama, Meryl Streep
