Bouquet Preservation Enquiry
How does pricing work?
Pressing your bouquet or memorial flowers to preserve them is an absolute privilege. Once your flowers are received, the entire bouquet is meticulously pressed and checked daily for the first week or two. Flowers are then in many cases reconstructed. So hours and hours are spent creating your beautiful keepsake. More details on the entire process below.
If there is not an option in your budget, please contact me. There may be an opportunity to just press one or two flowers from your special day to make into a smaller frame.

From wedding bouquet to final art piece - the process
This section is to give you a better understanding of why the bridal bouquets are priced as they are. Below is an approximate breakdown of how many hours it takes for each process. Each piece is a handmade original piece of art!
Flowers from the wedding bouquet are meticulously pressed - this can take up to 3 hours just to get them all in to the presses. Often flower petals have to be pulled apart and individually pressed.
The flowers are then checked every day for the first week (approx 3hours) and then left to dry perfectly for 6-8 weeks (depending on the flowers).
Once flowers are pressed - flowers that need it are reconstructed. (approx 2+ hours)
Glass is prepared and cleaned for the artwork.
The dried bouquet design is created and sent to the client for approval. (2+ hours)
Once approved, the flowers are adhered to the glass. Glue residue and fingerprints are cleaned. (1-2 hours)
Metal Frame - the frame is soldered around the glass using the tiffany stained glass method to fully encase them. The solder is then cleaned, polished, coloured, waxed and cleaned again. Ready to be delivered to it’s loving home! (2-3 hours)
Timber Frame - the timber frames are handmade by a local framer. (1-2 hours)
This process in total can take 8 - 12 weeks depending on flower drying times and in total 10 - 15 hours per piece. Flowers pressed in peak season August - October may take and extra 4-12 weeks.
A delicate handmade piece of art created with joy and made with love!
