Once the big day is over, how do you store the special mementoes to commemorate your wedding? Whether it’s your wedding flowers that you can’t bear to watch slowly wilting or the stationery suite you spent hours designing, here’s our round-up of how to keep your special wedding keepsakes close…

We love the idea of framing some of the special stationery from your wedding, especially in a one-off frame. How beautiful would your order of service look in one of these considered pieces from Ley Lines? Hand-crafted from repurposed frames whenever possible, for sustainability and style, and painted by Ruth Ley in the Ley Lines studio in the far-west of Cornwall, she also takes commissions so you can choose a frame in the colours of your wedding theme.Wedding Keepsakes Framed Stationery Wedding Bride Groom Devon Groom2Wedding Keepsakes Framed Stationery Wedding Bride Groom Devon Groom1instagram.com/leylinesstudio

If you choose a florist who grows their own flowers, they might be able to give you the seeds of your wedding flowers for you to replant and enjoy. South-west-based Branch and Bloom go one further than that in offering couples a unique seed service, growing flowers specifically for your wedding. You will be gifted some of the seeds used to sow your flowers so that you can grow the same special blooms in your garden, year after year.

For flowers that won’t die days after your wedding, there are options that are just as beautiful or striking as a fresh bouquet. The Paper Florist uses origami flowers as a striking alternative to real flowers, meaning everything from the size and colour can be selected to brighten your bridal ensemble or wedding décor. Or you may choose boho-chic dried flowers, which are long-lasting and can be displayed in a vase for some time after the wedding. Devon-based Dried Designs offers everything from bouquets and buttonholes to large installations and arbour florals.
