About flower preservation and the service


Most popular wedding flowers press very successfully, but certain flowers will change their hue slightly during the pressing process. The bouquets are taken apart and pressed for approximately ¾ month. As a pressed flower artist, Julie’s priority to the line and balance of colour is so important, the tiniest petals and buds are very carefully placed, making each picture a work of art. This attention to detail, together with, her years of experience, will re-capture the fragile and elegant beauty of your own wedding bouquet. The background and mounts chosen will give the most pleasing effect. So as not to detract from their own beauty, paler flowers look more dramatic on a darker background, whereas, more colourful flowers look more attractive on a pale background. Your Christian names and date of the wedding can be hand lettered to enhance your picture if required. All designs and pictures may vary depending on size, style and flowers supplied. No two pictures are ever alike.

Before the wedding

Advise your florist you are considering having you flowers pressed so they will keep wiring and stapling to a minimum. We have a wide range of frames and backgrounds available to choose from. If you would like to retain the original shape of your bouquet, it is necessary to select one of the medium/large size frames. However, you might prefer to have a smaller picture in one of the other designs using some of your flowers. It is advisable to book this service in advance, as we are very busy during peak times. If you wish to come and view samples of our work, please do not hesitate to contact of us in advance to discuss your requirements.

After the wedding

Keep the flowers cool, in a refrigerator, NOT THE FREEZER. Do not sprinkle them with water. Try to put any exposed stems into water. It is important to receive the flowers within 2/3 days of the wedding/occasion. We are open at weekends and bank holidays for personal delivery by prior arrangement. Alternatively if you live further afield you can post them by private courier or use the post office ‘next day delivery service’. Pack the bouquet up in a ’recommended post office box’ available over the counter, they will handle these much more carefully! It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure that the flowers arrive with us in the best possible condition. Remember we cannot preserve a flower if it is dead or squashed. If you haven’t already filled out the order form in advance and sent it off to us with your deposit, you must include these with the flowers. Flowers will not be accepted without a deposit. We accept all major credit cards, cheques or cash (but not in the post). Always label your flowers clearly with your name and contact details when posting. Normal completion time is within 4/5 months. Please allow longer if you did not place your order in advance. Final payment is due on completion and collection. Postage is extra, and will vary depending on size and weight of the finished item. See our full terms and conditions enclosed.
