Pressed bridal bouquets and occassion flowers
A modern and longlasting way to preserve your precious wedding flowers, or other occassion flowers.
How it works
Pressed by Pod & Petal will carefully press and preserve your bouquet to preserve those precious memories of your special occasion. Bouquets need to arrive with me within the best condition possible, usually within 5 days to ensure the best results. I use completely natural and traditional methods to press and arrange your flowers. If local, you can drop them off at my home studio (based just outside York), or you can post them. 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 will 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 can take between 6-8 weeks and the mounting and framing process up to a further 1-2weeks.
Can I get more than one frame from my 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.
How will it turn out?
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. If you want to discuss your bouquet, please drop me an email to get in touch!
How much does it cost?
This depends on your flowers, style and frame that you’d like. Different flowers need to be treated differntly when pressing so leach commission 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.
