How do I book in my wedding flowers to be pressed?
Bouquets need to arrive with me within the best condition possible, usually within 5-7 days to ensure the best results. I use completely natural and traditional methods to press and arrange your flowers. Don’t worry about sending your flowers in the post or via courier- if they are packaged correctly (I will advise) they should be fine.
How long does it take?
My method involves careful separation of flowers and foliages, sometimes down to the individual petal or leaf to ensure the best results. The pressing process usually takes up to 8 weeks and the mounting and framing process up to a further 1-2 weeks.
Can I get more than one frame from my wedding flowers?
Yes of course, this is usually possible. Alternatively you can also provide me with bridesmaid bouquets and/or buttonholes to frame as gifts or keepsakes for loved ones.
What will my flowers look like when pressed?
Pressed flowers are a thing of beauty and a great way to have a treasured keepsake of your day. As flowers are a natural product, some changes will occur during the pressing stages and some natural colour changes will occur. Some flowers press more easily than others and some hardly change colour at all. Follow me on Instagram to see examples of pressed flowers and wedding bouquets to get an idea of what to expect- each bouquet is unique and we can discuss the style you'd like when you book in.
If you want to discuss your bouquet with me before booking, please just contact me here.
How much will it cost?
This depends on your flowers, style and frame that you’d like. Different flowers need to be treated differently when pressing so every bouquet is individual. I will discuss approximate costs with you once I know what type of flowers are in your bouquet to give you an idea. Contact me here for queries before you decide to book.
