Pressed flower art and bespoke floral preservation handmade with love from a home studio in Ireland. Creating one of a kind pieces of floral art to admire and treasure for a lifetime.

We believe that flowers are a key component of any wedding and that their beauty should continue to be treasured long after your special day! A preserved bouquet would make a unique wedding keepsake or a thoughtful gift for any newlywed couple or their families.

All flowers are dried and preserved through the traditional process of pressing.

Once the flowers are thoroughly dried, they are arranged between two pieces of clear glass and sealed together to create a frame using the Tiffany stained glass technique. Lead free tin solder is used in all of our handmade creations. The solder can be kept silver or stained copper or black using a patina. As all our frames are handmade, we can customise them to your preference from shape to size. You can also include a photo or other items from your big day such as an invitation or mass booklet. Written details such as names, quotes or a date can be added to your frame if you wish. If there's something specific you have in mind or a set budget, we can put together a customised package to suit your needs.

Check out some of our beautiful bouquet preservation on our instagram page: @the_flower_bandits or visit our website www.theflowerbandits.ie for more information.

I am SO pleased with how my frame turned out and it looks even better in real life than it did on the photos Mariah sent. The box and packaging it arrived in was beautiful as well.

Mariah was very professional and so communicative and responsive during the whole process. There was a delay in getting my frame but Mariah’s communication re: this was excellent.

I am thankful I searched high and low all over Ireland to find Mariah’s work, her bouquet preservations are the nicest I have ever come across!

Thanks again Mariah 😊

Mariah was such a pleasure to deal with and the quality of the preservation is absolutely beautiful. Mariah is super responsive, flexible, and the quality of the finished piece is stunning. I was genuinely delighted to receive my finished piece. It only arrived today and has already received enormous praise from family. Would highly recommend to anyone who would like to preserve flowers from any occasion.

The frame Mariah created for me was so beautiful, I?m glad my flowers will be preserved forever or a very long time! She also created two smaller frames for our mams which I would recommend to get as well. Mariah is also very responsive and even the detail she puts in her packaging is so pretty.

My family couldn’t stop praising how beautiful the frames were. Mariah is a pleasure to deal with. Very professional and always keeping you up to date on the progress. I would highly recommend Mariah.

Mariah did such a wonderful job preserving my wedding bouquet. The frame is beautiful! Mariah made sure to consult with me at every step of the design process to ensure that I had the colour scheme and flowers I wanted to include. The frame is stunning and was packaged really well with a lot of thought put into it. I would highly recommend as it is so special and I will cherish it for years to come.

I am so grateful that Mariah accepted my request for making my sister a frame of her wedding flowers very last minute. She has been so amazing and professional throughout the whole process with regular updates and discussion to get the desired result. Mariah has done such a beautiful job and has clearly used so much care when creating my sisters piece. I couldn?t have imagined a more beautiful result and my sister is blown away also. I would definitely recommend Mariah @ the Flower Bandits to do any flower preservations.

Mariah was an absolute pleasure to work with! So helpful and responded very quickly to all e-mails. You could tell from her responses she really took the time to read the e-mails and responded with care and detail.
I would highly highly recommend this service. I had my already dried wedding bouquet of flowers preserved further and beautifully arrange in a shadow box along with a small disc display. ABSOLUTELY beautifully done!! 10 out of 10!!

From the second I contacted Mariah about preserving my bouquet she was so helpful and very informative about the entire process. She was very fast at responding in the emails. Mariah puts 110% into every bouquet preservation, the attention to detail is outstanding!! The colours are so bright just like they were on our big day. She chose the most beautiful selection of flowers and foliage from my bouquet to preserve. The packaging was even beautiful, so carefully and beautifully packaged to ensure it would not get damaged when shipped. I chose to do a partial bouquet preservation, the second I opened it, It took me right back to the day of the wedding. Its such an amazing way to remember the big day, and now I get to look at it everyday up on the wall. She also personalised it with our names and the wedding date. I cannot recommend Mariah enough, she is amazing.
I 100% recommend every bride to get this done with their bouquet, it is such a lovely keepsake.

Mariah preserved my bouquet from my wedding in October and I'm so thrilled with it, it went straight up on my wall.
Mariah was so easy to deal with and kept in touch with me throughout and made sure I was happy with the layout of my bouquet before finalising it.
I would definitely recommend Mariah to any other brides who wanted to preserve their wedding bouquets.

Mariah was absolutely amazing and did a beautiful job pressing and framing my bouquet. She was so warm and friendly to deal with and kept me in the loop every step of the way to ensure everything was just perfect. Posting my flowers down the Monday after the wedding was really straightforward, she gave specific instructions which made it easy! The frames she made for us, our parents and our bridesmaids are just stunning and really capture how beautiful the flowers were on the day. We are so happy to have such a beautiful piece to remember our wedding day. I couldn't recommend Mariah highly enough!

The service was fantastic and my bouquet was preserved perfectly. Unfortunately when my bouquet first arrived it had been damaged in transit (no fault of flower bandit) but Mariah was so helpful, reassuring and resolved it all so quickly. I love my 3 displays so much. The layout completely captures my bouquet and it is now one of my prized possessions. Thank you again Mariah. I would highly recommend.

Married on 5th May 2022
I found Mariah when Adonis Flower Designers shared a pressed bouquet that she had made from flowers Adonis supplied. The couple was also using Adonis and so I contacted Mariah before the wedding, which was perfect because she gave me all the instructions on how to pack the bouquet and post it to her. I told the bride that I needed the bouquet for ?something?, but not what it would be. Mariah confirmed as soon as she received the flowers and started pressing/ drying them. Then she came back to me with proposed layouts and to get my approval at every step.

When the final pieces arrived, they were beautifully packaged - each of the three pieces wrapped and tied. The couple LOVED the gifts.

Every single step of the way was perfect. I was given lots of information in advance, kept notified about the progress throughout the process and Mariah was an absolute pleasure to deal with.

I have no hesitation in recommending her for any couple - or for preservation of any special bouquet!

Mariah was amazing to work with. I didn't think about preserving my flowers until after the wedding and so was afraid it wouldn't be possible - Mariah explained my different options to me and was so accommodating. She sourced the most beautiful shadow box for my flowers and did a fantastic job arranging them. I'm so thrilled to have them on my wall forever.
