MODERN ICONIC FINE ART PRINT

Introducing…

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.

I make no secret of the fact that I am almost as crazy about wild and undone British floral design as I am about film photography.  Inspired by Constance Spry, pioneered a little over a decade ago and made famous by florists and growers like Sarah Winward and Floret.  Now, these modest cutting gardens offering strictly seasonal arrangements are on the increase.  This is really good news.  Such a huge variety of flowers grow here in the UK right through from March to November.  Why settle for a tight bauble of white roses on your wedding day when you can have a resplendent reflection of what’s growing in our meadows and gardens?

Holly-Bee Flowers is a flower garden and floral design studio based in Dartington, Devon.  Holly specialises in growing and arranging flowers and greenery for weddings, workshops and bouquets.  Working with the seasons her flowers are natural, evocative and beautiful.  Holly created Holly-Bee Flowers in 2015, with a background in design and a love for colour, texture and growing flowers. Natural beauty is at the heart of what she does.  She grows most of her own flowers and foliage in a quintessentially English country garden. She is a firm supporter of British flowers, and also sources from local suppliers where required.

As you can imagine I was over the moon when Holly asked me to photograph her and her wonderful garden in the heart of rural Devon late last summer. It was a very warm day and I wasn’t sure if I was working or playing.  I was in my own bit of heaven on earth with Holly’s stunning roses and my film camera.  As our English gardens and hedgerows burst into life for another season of beautiful blooms, here’s a brief look at Holly’s cutting garden and a few of her lush creations.

Do also head over to Holly’s own blog, where you can see more stunning British floral design and her flowers through the seasons – she’s pretty handy with her digital camera so there’s lot of lovely photos to see.
