It all starts with an email and sending me images of your wedding bouquet. If already married you are sure to have some lovely images of your bouquet captured by your wedding photographer. All you need to do is send me a few images of your bouquet and I will get back to you with options for its recreation.

For the bouquet featured here I was commissioned for a full scale version of the wedding bouquet.
I work to your budget so this could be a full sized piece or maybe you’d like just the main elements of the bouquet still giving a great overall feel of your special flowers from the big day.

Creating the Paper Flowers

Love and care is taken to handcraft each of the elements from your bouquet, looking in details at each flower and leaf to bring it back to life.

Getting the right look to the flowers and foliage sometimes involves hand painting the papers to realistically replicate what I see in the photographs I’m sent.

Handcrafted with Love

With all the elements individually handcrafted its time to arrange.

The Completed Paper Bouquet

The completed paper bouquet is carefully packaged up and posted directly to your chosen address ready for gifting in a lovely gift box. The perfect way to start celebrating your first year of marriage together.
