Wedding Flower Preservation
What do we do?
We specialise in capturing the beauty of your wedding flowers as a wonderful keepsake and reminder of your special day, capturing memories forever.
We will preserve your wedding bouquet and groom’s button hole and present them back to you framed in a deep box frame of your choice ready to hang.
We can also preserve your mother’s corsage, father and best man’s buttonhole and bridesmaid flowers as a beautiful, personal, thank you present.

How do we do it?
Upon receipt we photograph, sketch and measure your bouquet. Each flower is then freeze dried individually. Once fully dry your bouquet is reassembled in your hand crafted frame and the frame is then sealed to ensure your flowers remain dust free.
How long will it take?
Flowers vary in the length of time they take to preserve depending on the variety and colour. Your bouquet will usually be ready in 12 to 14 weeks.
What flowers can be preserved & will they stay the same colour?
All flowers can be preserved; the end result varies due to the type of flower and the colour. Most flowers change to a paper like texture and take on a matt finish. Orchids, and in particular Vanda orchids, can be temperamental and the results are unpredictable.
Every flower is unique; this makes it impossible to guarantee the end colour result. Generally pink flowers dry darker towards shades of red, white flowers become creamy in colour, yellow, orange, purple and true blue flowers keep their colour well.
Please call us to discuss individual flower types.
What do I need to do now?

Call us now to reserve your wedding date. A deposit of £80 is payable upon arranging for us to freeze dry your flowers.
Due to the delicate nature of the work and the time and attention we like to give every customer, we try to limit the number of orders we work on each week.
When booking we will give you advice on everything you & your florist can do to ensure your flowers remain perfectly fresh until they reach us.
If, on the other hand, you already have your flowers, don’t panic!
