Approximately 30cm x 40cm.
Your flowers will be professionally framed in a maple wood frame, using high quality 'invisible' anti-reflective art glass.
CARE NOTE: Pressed flowers, if cared for properly, will last for many many years. As an organic medium, they'll fade eventually overtime, giving them that beautiful vintage look. To protect your art, please keep your frame away from direct sunlight, UV sources, heat and humidity. Small pieces of pollen and plant material might get separated in the frame, however please know that this is expected and will settle.
Your Wedding Bouquet Frame will be ready in 4-5 months.
HOW TO POST:
Keep your flowers in clean water and keep them in a cool room. Post them as soon as possible, to ensure the flowers are as fresh as possible for pressing, using Royal Mail NEXT DAY DELIVERY BEFORE 1PM service (this is crucial to ensure I don't miss their arrival. Cost of postage is about £15.) to my studio:
Patti Rayner, 38 St Dunstans Close, Monks Risborough, HP27 9BN, England.
If you are local, you can also contact me to arrange a drop off.
Remove anything valuable. Fasten the stems of your flowers with an elastic band and wrap the bottom of the stems in DAMP kitchen roll. Cover the stems and kitchen roll with a plastic sandwich bag / cling film and secure with an elastic band to prevent it from leaking in the box. Wrap the bouquet lightly in paper to protect your flowers from bruising / breaking. Place them in a sturdy cardboard box (size 60cm x 60cm max) UPRIGHT and surround them with scrunched up paper / tissue paper to prevent them from wobbling in the box. Include your details in the box and mark the box with 'FRAGILE' and 'THIS WAY UP'.
Please provide me with the tracking number after you have posted your bouquet.
IMPORTANT: Before purchasing please contact me through 'Ask Seller' button to check my availability and to discuss your flowers, to make sure they are suitable for pressing.

FLOWERS THAT DON'T PRESS WELL: As much as I would love to press all flowers, unfortunately not all of them press well. Flowers that are particularly big and bulky wouldn't fit in the frame and wouldn't look good as part of the floral composition. However, where possible, I press the petals of large blooms individually to include them in your floral frame (such as sunflowers, dahlias, chrysanthemums, carnations). Flowers that definitely do not press well or fit in the frames are: lillies, irises, proteas, anthurium orchids and tropical flowers, spring bulb flowers (such as tulips, hyacinths etc.), some berries, holly, ornamental cabbages, snapdragons, amaryllis, white & pale lisianthus and succulents.
Please note that during the pressing process your flowers might change their colour.
