FAQ Wedding

How should I pack my flowers?

You can use kitchen roll and cling film to wrap your bouquet before placing it in a solid cardboard box to avoid any defects during delivery. Use a Next Day delivery service, e.g. « Royal Mail special delivery (guaranteed next day by 1pm) » available at any local post office. Please write your name somewhere in the box as I often have several bouquets arriving on the same day.

When is it best to book?

You can book anytime ahead or within a few days after your wedding. It is best to book from 6 months to 2 weeks before your wedding. This allows you to secure your wedding dates in case it’s a busy time for me. Although rare, occasionally items can go out of stock. It also provides you with more time to work out how your flowers are going to make their way to me.

What if I can’t send my bouquet straight away?

If you can’t send your bouquet straight away, it is best to keep it in clean tap water until posting.

What do you advise in terms of flowers? What flowers press best?

Generally speaking, bright and colourful flowers are more likely to retain their hues after pressing. Please note the outcome is always going to be slightly darker than the original bouquet. Please also be aware that white flowers (especially roses), will turn slightly brown.

Varieties that press particularly well: Lisianthus, Hydrangeas, Gypsophilas, Roses, Eucalyptus, Italian Ruscus, Peonies (petals), Delphiniums or Larkspurs, Clematis, Anemones, Tweedia, Ranunculus, and a lot more.

Varieties to avoid: Thistles, Dahlias.

When do we discuss design?

On the day I receive your flowers, I will send you an email to acknowledge receipt. I am also going to ask you if you have anything in mind design-wise. But you can feel free to send me any ideas you have anytime during the process. Please let me know if there is something particular you imagine or want and I will do everything I can to make your idea come to life! I am not responsible, however, if the design is not to your liking should you not state your preferences before I begin on the frame.

How long does it take to make a bridal frame?

This mostly depends of the size of the frame. Let’s take the XXL frame (largest option), for example, which takes approximately 11 hours.

Breakdown of effort:

  • Pressing the flowers: 3 hours
  • Getting the flowers out of press 2 months later: 1 hour
  • Picking out the best flowers, creating the design, fixing the flowers: 6 hours
  • Framing, packing and shipping: 1 hour

Customer service is not included as part of the price. Pressing flowers is a delicate, time-consuming process and is 100% handmade. This reflects a large percentage of the price of this service.

How would you recommend I take care of my frame?

The pressed flowers are going to fade a bit over time, which is totally normal. It gives a vintage look I absolutely love! To prolong the vibrancy of the flowers, I would place the frame out of direct sunlight
