We preserve your Precious Memories!
To air dry the flowers we will need to dissemble your bouquet, (don’t worry, plenty of photos are taken before we do this). Any ribbons or pins are set aside, and if need be, cleaned.
The drying process takes a number of weeks, once thoroughly dried your bouquet is then reassembled referring back to the initial photographs. The finished arrangement will be as near as possible to your bouquet. From start to finish we ask brides to expect to wait 3 months before receiving their finished piece.
Air-dried is to dry without using chemicals in the process and is environmentally friendly. Size is reduced by shrinkage, the colours will change and the petals may crinkle and take on an antique effect, all of which we believe enhance the beauty of the flowers. Please see our photos for examples.
To ensure we capture your bouquet at its best we recommend that the drying process begin as early as possible. To help achieve this, we offer free collection and delivery service within the M25 area. We are prepared to collect straight from your wedding service or reception.
If you live outside this area we are able to offer a courier service at an extra cost or please see our instructions to package and send your bouquet to us by post.
Although we specialise in wedding bouquets we are happy to dry any flowers that you wish to keep including button holes, bridesmaid bouquets, corsages or those purely sent from someone special. Please contact us for further information.
We can also act as a wedding bouquet salvage yard! If you’ve kept your wedding bouquet from your long-ago wedding and now don’t know what to do with it? We can help salvage it and restore it to its former glory. Please contact us for further details.
