THE PERFECT KEEPSAKE

Are you looking for a beautiful way to preserve your wedding bouquet?

After spending so much time and money on wedding flowers, brides often look for a way to preserve their bouquet after the big day. A dried flower arrangement in a boxy frame isn't for everyone, and if you value original artwork then a custom drawing offers a unique alternative.

I draw your bouquet, table arrangements, buttonholes (basically anything floral) using photographs so there is no need to worry about getting the fresh flowers to me when you should be packing for your honeymoon!

THE PROCESS

It all starts with your photo. Whether it's taken by your professional photographer or a friend on their phone it doesn't matter, as long as photos are close up and clear I can use them.

All colour commissions are mixed media, and essentially half painting, half drawing. I start with a watercolour base as I feel it gives a nice depth of colour, and then add layers of pencil over the top. I promise regular communication throughout your commission, and email clients progress photos so they can see the work develop. It is such a personal piece of work, it just has to be right. 

There are three affordable options for you to choose from - colour, black and white or a modern line drawing. I am very open about pricing and feel it's only fair to charge every client the same, whatever the size and style of their bouquet.

"I knew early on that I wanted to have my bouquet preserved in some way. I looked at all the different options but those glass paperweight things just weren’t my vibe and then I stumbled across Hannah and oh my God am I happy that I did!

I don’t have enough words to describe just how much I’m in love with the piece of artwork Hannah has created. She has perfectly captured my bouquet and all its beautiful colours, creating the most incredible keepsake from our big day"

BESPOKE SERVICE

 

You won't find any computers here, everything is lovingly drawn by hand and as all work is bespoke, if there are things you would like changing just let me know. Whether it's making a certain flower paler or brighter, or changing the colour of the ribbons, all details can be tweaked to suit you.

Commissioning an artist can be a strange process which most of us won't have done before, so please don't hesitate to get in touch with any questions you may have and we can discuss your ideas.
