A Kent-based small business has sown the seed for a stunning new method of wedding flower preservation. Owned and managed by Yasmin Balcombe, Bespoke Botanicals offers resin wedding flower preservation across a range of styles and designs. With traditional bouquet framing now falling out of fashion, this new take has proven to be a hit with stylish couples everywhere!
Flowers can be set into resin in an assortment of different ways, from a photo frame containing the florals from your special day, to a set of botanical coasters or resin display blocks featuring everlasting blooms. Preserved wedding flowers can make a great gift to add to your wish list, while smaller designs work beautifully as favours on the day. Other designs include free-standing floral letters, ornaments of various shapes and sizes, framed dates and letters, keyrings, jewellery, ring holders and even a side table.
If you’re thinking about having your bouquet preserved, be sure to reserve your date online in advance to ensure availability. Most flowers can be preserved, whether freshly cut, kept safe after the big day or already dried. Blooms are sent directly to the studio, where they’ll be carefully dried and arranged to maintain their natural shape and beauty. This process takes anywhere from three days to three weeks depending on flower variety. Once dried, they’ll be arranged in the mould and you’ll be given the option to collaborate on the ideal layout. As soon as it’s been approved, it will be cast in crystal clear resin becoming an everlasting heirloom. The entire process takes several weeks, with resin poured gradually in layers and left to cure, maintaining the natural vigour of each and every petal.
