Preserving your wedding memorabilia and keepsakes

Weddings are a time of excitement, planning and organization. The result being a hopefully flawless and memorable wedding. However, most of the energy for a wedding is put into the preparation for the big day and once the wedding is over, the bride and groom look forward to the honeymoon and relaxing. So, it is not surprising that after wedding thoughts often go forgotten.

Resin preservation of wedding keepsakes

Traditionally, capturing memories of the big day take the form of photographs and videos, but there are often other items which helped make the day special that the bride and groom may have kept but are unsure what to do with. These can be anything from confetti used at the ceremony or table confetti used to decorate the tables at the reception, from flowers to ribbon, wedding favours, or anything else that made the day special.

All these items can be preserved forever and even worn and enjoyed for many years to come in the form of resin preservation.

Preserving wedding flowers

There are services provided for flower preservation in for example a picture frame. However, how special would it be to be able to wear those special flowers captured and preserved for you to enjoy, in the form of an item of jewellery. And it is not just an item of jewellery that could be made to capture flowers or those special memories. Resin preservation can be used to create many items to suit anyone, for example having the wedding flowers preserved inside paperweights.

Keyrings, phone charms, bag charms, cufflinks, pendants, paperweights...there to always remind you of the special day, whether you are the bride, groom or the family members and friends.

The beauty of resin preservation is that it can be tailor made to any design and to your preferences, so you get that special keepsake you want. One such keepsake would be to provide a set of cufflinks for the groom, best man and other members of the family containing a piece of the wedding dress. The glass like properties of the resin have a magnifying effect on the special items within it, and it really does show off the colours of the items and their details exquisitely.

Custom made wedding keepsakes

I take pride and satisfaction in providing married couples with something special. Each piece is carefully made to their specifications, which will be completely unique. Items can be preserved at the family’s convenience so they can enjoy the wedding and after celebrations knowing they can use the service when they need it. If the bride and groom have used fresh wedding flowers, they can either let someone keep them or get advice from the florist to keep them fresh before preservation.

Whatever the bride and groom choose to preserve, they can be assured that it will be an incredibly unique way of capturing and preserving the special items and memories of their big day. I wish them a happy wedding day with lots of memories to cherish forever.
