Last Minute Enquiries Welcome Flower Preservation and Wedding Bouquet Preservation
All pictures created by The Flower Preservation Studio are custom made, hand crafted botanical keepsakes.
The following Terms and Conditions have been designed to make you aware of what happens to your flowers and foliage during the preservation process.
By placing an order, you are accepting and agreeing to the below Terms and Conditions.
During the preservation process, all of the moisture is slowly extracted from your flowers.
Although the form and shape will stay the same, there may be some slight changes in the colour of the flowers and they will take on a matt “antiqued” look. Red flowers with a yellow undertone keep their colour particularly well but flowers with a blue undertone will darken in tone. eg. a ruby red rose will turn a dark, almost claret colour. True blue flowers will remain true and many white flowers will turn a light shade of cream. This colour change is a completely normal side effect of preservation.
Once your flowers have been preserved, the actual flowers and foliage will last for many years. However, depending on the colour and variety of a flower, the colour may fade and change and we cannot make any guarantees that the colour will last.
We will endeavour to reproduce your bouquet as closely as possible to the original. However, there will always be a degree of artistic interpretation to our pictures.
It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure that any flowers to be collected are correctly packaged and labelled and are left at the agreed collection point at the agreed time. We will give you full instructions on how to package your flowers correctly.
We cannot be held responsible for any damage caused to your flowers whilst they are in transit to us via a third party.
It is the customer’s responsibility to ensure that your flowers arrive with us in the best possible condition. Remember, we cannot preserve a flower if it is dead or squashed or in any way damaged. Full packaging instructions will be given to you at the time of booking so that your flowers arrive in the best possible condition at our Studio.
We cannot accept responsibility for any poor results if your flowers arrive at our Studio in a poor condition. We will take all steps possible to salvage any bruised or wilted flowers by trimming or re-hydrating but if any flowers cannot be preserved, we will contact you to see if you would like us to put in replacement flowers.
The Flower Preservation Studio cannot be held responsible for the loss/damage of your flowers whilst in our care due to fire, storm, civil disorder, loss of electricity, flood, mechanical failure or any other event beyond our control. Please note that The Flower Preservation Studio’s liability is strictly limited to the amount of money that you have paid and no further compensation would be offered in these circumstances.
If any of your flowers are not in good enough condition to preserve, we will let you know so you can decide if you would them to be replaced. Replacement flowers will incur an extra charge but we will consult with you first before purchasing any replacements so that you know what any additional charges are.
We offer a wide range of frames for you to choose from. However, if there is a specific frame that you require that is not in any of our 4 collections, we will happily order it in for you. An additional charge of £30 plus the cost of your specific frame will be added to your invoice.
A deposit of £200 is required to secure your order. All deposits are non refundable. Please note that once a deposit has been paid, you are committed to following your order through to its conclusion. If for any reason, you decide that you no longer wish to proceed with having your flowers preserved and framed, you will still be liable for the full outstanding amount of your order.
Our prices are all inclusive. There is no reduction in the price of your picture if any of included services/products are not used.
All flowers accepted and preserved by The Flower Preservation Studio will remain our property until all charges associated with the preservation are paid in full.
Our picture turnaround time is approximately 50 weeks and you should expect to receive your completed keepsake just prior to your first wedding anniversary. However, this is not guaranteed and at our busiest times of the year, pictures may take longer to be completed. We reserve the right to extend the picture completion time if necessary.
All pictures are custom made and completed in accordance with your written instructions and specifications. Once we have started work on the final stages of your picture, changes cannot be made to these specifications without damaging your flowers.
Our pictures are very fragile when completed and leave our Studio in perfect condition . Although we take all measures possible in order to ensure that your picture is properly protected and packaged up, we cannot be responsible for any particles that become loose or for any breakages that happen whilst your picture is in transit back to you by a third party. For peace of mind, we STRONGLY recommend that you collect your picture from us in person especially the larger, trailing type bouquets.
If any damage does occur in transit, you MUST contact us within 3 days of receipt of your picture so that we can take necessary action with our couriers.
In the very rare event that you are not satisfied with your final picture, you must notify us within 3 days of receipt of your picture so that any point(s) of dissatisfaction can be reasonably addressed.
The Flower Preservation Studio’s liability is strictly limited to the full purchase price of the picture only.
