on your wedding! As a Nottingham-based wedding photographer capturing beautiful moments across Nottingham, Derbyshire, and the Midlands, I understand the importance of every detail on your special day.
One detail that holds sentimental value long after the vows are exchanged is your wedding flowers. In this guide, we’ll explore creative and meaningful ways to preserve and repurpose those gorgeous blooms.

04. Framed Floral Displays
Why not consider framing your dried wedding flowers in a picture frame or shadow box. The result is a stunning piece of home decor that preserves the beauty of your bouquet. Pressing flowers is a simple yet effective way to achieve this. Place your flowers between the pages of a book, stack more books on top, and in about two weeks, your flowers will be beautifully dried and flattened. To add a personal touch, include other keepsakes from your special event, such as ticket stubs or small photos. Hang the frame on your wall or place it on a desk or table, allowing you to admire your bouquet for years to come.

Unleash your artistic side by creating one-of-a-kind wall art using dried flowers. Press the flowers and arrange them in a frame, on a canvas, or even directly on your wall using adhesive. The possibilities are endless, allowing you to express your creativity and transform your wedding flowers into a unique piece of decor that captures the essence of your special day.
