Hedgerow Flowers inc. Precious Posies, is South Australia’s premier freeze drying company, which specialises in providing an exclusive service to brides who would like to preserve their flowers.

Since 1990, Hedgerow Flowers inc. Precious Posies have preserved hundreds of wedding bouquets using their superior freeze drying machine. Imported from America, the machine is recognised as providing the best method of flower preservation worldwide, allowing a majority of the flowers to retain their shape, size, shade, and in some instances, smell.

Once freeze dried, the flowers will not wilt or grow mould when protected from humidity, full sunlight and insects, in fact the freeze dried flowers should last for many, many years.

Hedgerow Flowers inc. Precious Posies are South Australia’s only freeze drying company, preserving flowers, rose petals, and other subjects upon request. They source the freshest local South Australian rose petals, and freeze dry them in a wide range of colours and varieties. Organic and bio-degradable, our petals are approved by most wedding venue operators as they will not stain the linen, carpet or most importantly-your wedding dress.

For the final touch to your perfect wedding day, see Hedgerow Flowers inc. Precious Posies. They can help you preserve the magic of your wedding day for many years to come.

Spring Bridal Ideas Expo Launches ' The Wedding Project'

The Adelaide Spring Bridal Ideas Expo, South Australia’s largest showcase of bridal fashion labels, will this month launch The Wedding Project, a new initiative giving brides exclusive access to two of the state’s leading designers.

Paul Vasileff, from Paolo Sebastian, and established fashion and bridal designer Liza Emanuele will be joined by TV presenter and local personality Lisa McAskill for a free workshop, with the bridal style icons providing unprecedented access to advice on the latest trends, designs and ideal cuts for every body shape.

Expo director Elizabeth Falloon said the concept arose from feedback she has received from brides over the past decade, overwhelmed by the role of styling themselves and their bridal parties amongst the other plans for their big day.

“Accessing expert advice to select the right gown can be difficult, expensive and time consuming; The Wedding Project was innovated to provide a shortcut to the information bridal parties need to make a stylish and confident dress choice that they’ll adore for years to come.”

Couples are encouraged to bring their bridal parties along, with one lucky group selected daily to be personally ‘styled’ by the experts.


27th & 28th October 2012 Goyder Pavilion, Adelaide Showground 10am-5pm

Adults $15, concession $13

Fashion Parades: 
11.00 – 11.30AM and 2.30 – 3.00PM Saturday & Sunday
