Wedding & Event Design


Thursday 10th - Saturday 12th August 2017                                             
Thursday 16th - Saturday 18th November 2017

10am - 4pm                                

This three day course is ideal for anyone organising a wedding, party, corporate dinner or event or looking to offer event, wedding and venue design to their portfolio. 

During the 3 days we prepare and then decorate Newton Hall with amazing flower garlanding, large scale impact pedestals, entrance designs and low and high arrangements for the tables.  We look at using lighting, props,the theme and colour, costing logistics and project managing (including delegating) the flowers for the event.

During the 3 days you will work either individually or in groups on the following designs:

  • Foliage garlanding for staircase, arches & marquee poles to include swags
  • Low table arrangements for multiple tables
  • Tall table centre designs 
  • Top table and mantelpiece arrangement - long and low 
  • Decorations for chairs
  • Large scale designs: statement pedestal designs

You will work individually and in groups to create the designs, from planning to implementation making the three days as realistic as possible.  At the end of the course, where you have worked on group projects we will share out the items to take home.

You will leave full of confidence to cope with any venue, marquee or large scale event.

This is an ideal opportunity to enhance your portfolio of work.

Suitable for those who would have some beginners level flower arranging/floristry knowledge but need to widen their skills.  If you have attended any previous Beginners/Wedding evening or Intensive Courses this is a perfect next step.

We only allow a maximum of 8 students on this course, and a minimum of 4 are required for the course to run.  In the event that the minimum student number is not reached within 14 days of the start date we will advise and refund all course fees in full.

"Most enjoyable 3 days.  Fun and relaxed, but most of all informative, inspiring and a confidence builder.  A really amazing experience. Fabulous setting and loved the cake breaks and the salads.  Will definitely return!  Sarah and Gussie were warm, encouraging and fun!!!"
Hilary Emerson | Wedding and Event Design | April 2017


The course includes all the flowers, foliage, sundries and containers that you need to complete the item(s).  You take home the table arrangements and share between you the other designs.  

You will also be provided with tools to use during the day.   If you wish to purchase tools, we have these available and can be purchased on the day.

We suggest you bring your camera to take photos as a reminder of what you have learnt during the day.

We would recommend wearing  comfortable shoes and clothing that you don't mind getting wet or dirty (as flowers involve a bit of both!)
