HOW IT WORKS


HOW IT WORKS


F L O R A G R A P H I C A

 


CUSTOM ARTWORKS

Your wedding flowers are the most beautiful flowers you will ever own.  You put so much love and care into choosing them and they look absolutely stunning on the day.  And then . . . ? Usually, not much happens, and that is such a shame.

This is where we step in.  From your bouquet, we create a work of art that you can enjoy long after your wedding day. 


OUR PROCESS

 
 

It generally works like this:

  • You make a booking and pay a deposit ($99)

  • The day after the wedding (or other event), we collect the bouquet and bring it back to the studio. If you are interstate, you can box up the bouquet - we show you how - and send/courier it to us.

  • Over the next 5 or so days, we shoot the bouquet as a whole arrangement as well as taking some beautiful macro shots of the individual flowers.

  • Once we have taken all the photos we can, we edit the images to create a range of artworks for you to choose from. At this stage the next instalment ($199) is due.

  • Then, after you have made your choice(s), we print the image(s) for you - a piece of statement, heirloom art for your home - something NO-ONE else in the world will have - of something so beautiful and so meaningful to you. 

  • You can choose to have your artwork printed on fine art paper (with or without framing), printed on canvas, board or acrylic, or even printed on fabric (e.g. as a scarf or cushion cover). 

  • If you wish, you have the option to purchase digital copies of the rest of the edited images, plus you can purchase multiple physical copies at a discount in order to give as gift.

  • The final payment is paid just before delivery.

If it is not your wedding, giving a custom Floragraphica print is a gorgeous, unique gift.  

Should the wedding/event be past, we can have our florist match the flowers so we can create your artwork.  These make a gorgeous anniversary present, especially for the first anniversary, which is 'paper'.  Read more here.

Before the event:

  • Complete our booking/enquiry form or get in touch with us to check availability. If we have availability, you can book us right up until the day after the wedding - assuming the flowers have been kept and looked after.

  • Pay a deposit ($99) to secure the booking.  

  • Provide collection details for the flowers as appropriate.

  • Relax - you will soon have an exquisite artwork celebrating your flowers.

After the event:

  • +24 hrs – Floragraphica collects/receives your flowers (or sources flowers, if required) and your flower/s are photographed

    For Sydney weddings, we usually collect your flowers the day after the wedding/event (from your home, from the home of family/friends, or from the hotel/reception venue) and bring them to our studio . Of course, you can deliver or post them to us if you prefer - especially if you are not in Sydney.

    • (For more information regarding our pick up service, and for information regarding caring for your flowers and packing them up for delivery, please visit our Collection & Delivery page.)

  • 2-7 days – Your flowers are photographed as a full bouquet and then deconstructed and shot separately. We shoot in different compositions and with both dark and light backdrops to give you a range of images.

    As most flowers are really delicate and perishable and as we typically deconstruct the bouquet, you will need to say goodbye to your bouquet when we collect it.

  • 7+ days – Images are edited and a selection of the best images are prepared as proofs for you to view - we aim for around 6-8 images for you to choose from. 

  • 3-4 weeks – Proofs are ready to view.  The 2nd instalment ($199) is required in order to access proofs. 

  • 5-6 weeks – You let us know which image(s) you loved and we discuss sizing.  At this stage we can get quotes for framing or printing on canvasing if you require. (This timing is flexible - you may be on your honeymoon or moving house, for example)

  • 8-10 weeks (indicative) – Printing (and, if applicable, framing) is completed and the artwork is delivered on receipt of the final payment, which is the remaining balance based on artwork size and any framing.

  • If you would like digital copies of the remaining proof images you are able to purchase these at a bulk rate once you have purchased your artwork.

Please see our Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) and our Terms and Conditions (T&C) pages for more information.

 
Floragraphica creates images from wedding bouquets, boutonnieres and posies, floral arrangements from engagements, christenings, funerals, twenty-firsts and bat mitzvahs, or any other flower that is important to you. And if you don't have a flower arrangement, we can source the type of flower you love and shoot that, so it still has special meaning to you.

PRICING


PRICING


F L O R A G R A P H I C A

Floragraphica pieces are an artwork that will last generations, becoming the most beautiful, meaningful heirloom, and a stunning and unique way to decorate your home.

All prices include: Sydney metro flower pickup, photography & post production, printing and shipping/delivery of artwork within Sydney metro.  

All artworks are giclee printed, with archival quality inks, on heavy 100% cotton rag, smooth matte fine-art paper stock.

These prices are for UNFRAMED artworks, but we can arrange framing for you.  Pricing for framing depends on image size, frame style and size and border size. Let us know if you would like to be quoted on framing.

* Different dimensions/sizes are available - let us know how big or what shape you’d like and we will quote you a price.

Payment Structure is based on three instalments:

~ A deposit of $99 is required on booking.  This deposit guarantees the booking, and covers the cost of collection and photography of the flowers.

~ The next instalment is $199 and is due after photography and processing has been completed.  We will let you know when the proofs are ready and once we receive the 2nd instalment we will send you the link to view the proofs.  The next step is choosing your final image, and deciding on size (and frame options, if framing).  

~ The final instalment is calculated as the remaining balance of the total cost, based on the size of the artwork (and framing, if being done).  This last instalment is payable before delivery/collection of the artwork. 

* We can create a payment plan of smaller, more frequent payments if preferred.

Additionally:

~ Once the first artwork is purchased:

  • subsequent artworks are available at a reduced price, getting increasingly cheaper the more you order; and

  • you are eligible to purchase the digital files of the remaining images from the proofs at a bulk rate.

COLLECTION & DELIVERY


COLLECTION & DELIVERY


F L O R A G R A P H I C A

We offer a pick-up service within metro/greater Sydney:

Metro & Greater Sydney

A pick up service from any metro or greater Sydney address is included in the cost.  Your flowers can be picked up from a home, work or business address. You can nominate a friend or family members address if you will not be available. To book this service please use our online booking form "Get in touch" or telephone or email us.

Outer suburbs/Country Areas/Interstate

Pick up from suburbs outside of Sydney is available for a $50 fee.  Please use our online booking form or message us for further information. 

People in interstate, country NSW areas or far outer suburbs of Sydney can send their flowers through Australia Post (via express post for fast delivery and tracking).  Post it at your nearest Australia Post outlet via Express Post & keep a tracking information. (Refer to our instructions below regarding how to pack your flowers to send to us.)  

We will provide you with the postage address and more specific instructions prior to your wedding date.  

* Note that postage is at your expense, however we will refund the booking fee if the flowers are unworkable when they arrive. 

* If you are sending your flowers through Australia Post, please ensure you have notified us of your booking so we know when to expect the parcel.  You can do this by using our contact form or by emailing us at info@floragraphica.com.au.  

 


CARE OF YOUR FLOWERS BEFORE SHIPPING

The fresher the flowers and the better the condition we receive them in, the better the finished art work will be. 

Take care of your flowers during the event, and in particular, keep them out of direct heat as much as possible. Always take care laying them down, to avoid any breakages. 

After your event, if you can, place them back in the box in which they were delivered. Otherwise, put them in a vase (if possible) or in another suitable box/container. Then, until collection/delivery, keep them in the coolest place you can.  You can spray them lightly with water or place damp paper towel over them (NOT newspaper).

Do not place them in the fridge, the freezer or in plastic (bag or wrap).

If you can place them in a vase, cut 1cm off the bottom of the stems before doing this. 

NEVER FREEZE YOUR BOUQUET.

PACKING FLOWERS TO SEND TO US

If you live outside of the Sydney metro area (or outer suburbs with pick up arranged) you will need to pack and post your flowers in a box. We recommend purchasing a mailing/storage box in advance from Australia Post (ask your florist for the required dimensions) and using guaranteed next day delivery to ensure the flowers arrive in good condition.  You can also use a courier service if you want to be sure of extra care. 

We offer no guarantees that we will be able to satisfactorily photograph the bouquet, but will let you know straight away if there are any issues.  We offer the option of deposit refund should the flowers be unworkable on arrival. 

When we receive your interstate booking, we will send you a small care pack for you to use when you send us your flowers.  This contains a foam sheet that you dampen and wrap around the ends of the stems. It also contains a small cello bag to cover the foam sheet to keep the foam sheet - and therefore flower ends - wet, and to prevent the postage box from becoming damaged. 

To pack your flowers/bouquet, place scrunched up tissue paper or newspaper in the bottom of the box. Place the flowers/bouquet (with the ends covered with the foam sheet and cello bag) on top of the paper, then place more paper around the sides of the flowers/bouquet so it is supported. 

With longer arrangements/bouquets you may need to bend the trail or cut off the last few flowers to fit it into the box. You don’t need to worry about doing this as we will usually shoot extremely close to the bouquet.

If your bouquet is packed with care, no significant harm will come to them and they should arrive in good condition.

Make sure you put your name, address and phone number in the box with your flowers and mark the box as 'fragile'. Also, as mentioned above, please let us know when you have posted them so that we can be ready to receive them.

ABOUT


ABOUT


About

 

Hi, I'm Elise, co-founder and photographer at Floragraphica.

Floragraphica started as a passion project for me.  While I was working as a naturopath I had a burning desire to make a beautiful book on flowering herbal medicines (I still do!).  That led me to studying photography so that I could take my own images of the herbs, which led into friends and family asking to buy my images, which led into friends giving 'me' as a gift to shoot bouquets for brides. And now it has led me to you! I can't wait to work with you so you can keep your gorgeous flowers with you forever.
