Framing and Preserving a Wedding Bouquet

With the season of weddings upon us I thought I’d show you a beautiful bridal bouquet we framed this year.  The flowers had been freeze dried but were extremely fragile, so, as well as creating a stunning wall piece, the frame protected the bouquet.

We wanted to create a simple look to highlight the pale cream flowers so used a natural, solid ash frame. Natural wood never dates, creating a timeless display, in keeping with the bouquet.

The frame had be deep enough to hold the flowers and we used a natural wood spacer to create the box frame.  Our water white, uv filter glass added extra protection and clarity.

Box framing is a wonderful way to preserve and display something special that would otherwise be hidden away.  Flowers, sports shirts, medals and coins, even a child’s first shoes – we can usually find a frame to fit!
