About the Company

Blooming Keepsakes founder and head floral designer, Cachelle Davison, has spent the last 4 years researching and exploring all the different techniques, systems, and equipment available around the world that are used in professional floral preservation, it takes time (and a lot of patience) to experiment with flowers and learn what works and what doesn’t. With the help of her team, she now runs one of the most unique and stunning flower preservation companies in Australia. Offering a modern, yet affordable way for her brides to remember their special day.

Unlike most companies that only use one method of flower preservation, research has found that each and every flower preserves differently and so no “one process” is suitable, with a combined preservation process our clients are guaranteed the best possible results. 

Every flower that arrives at Blooming Keepsakes is individually catalogued, photographed, re-hydrated, colour matched and analysed before being gently frozen to below freezing temperatures. What follows is a series of over 40 individual steps and processes, all done by hand, before finally being encapsulated in a stunning crystal-clear resin, giving each bloom a new forever lease on life.
