A new UK wedding bouquet preservation service.
I am delighted to be the first to offer brides & grooms right across the country this modern UK wedding bouquet preservation option. The Botanical Bouquet offers UK couples the opportunity to preserve their wedding flowers as a luxury fine art print. The Botanical Bouquet is an authentic, contemporary approach to preserving your bridal bouquet, inspired by a love for iconic botanical illustrations of the past.
The oldest illustrated sketchbook is traced to a Greek botanist during the first century AD. The practice has never gone out of fashion since, booming across Europe during the Georgian and Victorian eras.
Today the tradition continues to thrive, through watercolours, paper sculpture and glass art. We are thrilled to join the botanical art movement, with hand-crafted surfaces, finest pigment inks and pure cotton papers.
So how does it work? Well, all it requires is a little extra planning and care with your bouquet. Don’t worry, detailed instructions are included in the brochure (request yours here). But in a nutshell… stand your bouquet in water whenever you can on your wedding day. Then, the next day, separate the stems, wrap them in damp cotton wool and post/courier your flowers to me.
I take care of the rest of the process, and you receive your beautiful fine art print by special delivery as soon as you return from honeymoon! I carefully arrange the varieties from your bouquet, using linen boards hand-made in a Somerset bindery. Then I photograph and annotate your design, before ordering your archival quality print on 100% cotton rag.
The Botanical Bouquet print is available to brides throughout the UK. Simply send me your wedding date and browse the brochure. Then choose your surface, mount and any extras. Click here to check if your date is available and receive the brochure.
