5 day course - £975.00 | 6 day course - £1195.00                      

If you are considering becoming a wedding florist or already have some floristry knowledge then this is the course for you!  It not only covers many popular designs, but we look at quotations, working out costings and how to get your wedding floristry business started with marketing and social media.

The course covers both theory and practical subjects.    On completion of the course you will have the confidence and skills to offer your services as a wedding florist.  We do recommend that you practice all the practical elements covered on the course on completion.  We also offer a separate course for Venue Decoration which covers large scale designs suitable for marquees, country houses and venues with large impressive rooms.

This course follows on from our Intensive Floristry Career Course.  Students can choose to attend both courses one week after the other or at separate dates throughout the year.  Each course covers completely different topics. 

This course is held at The Cambridge Flower School, Newton Hall, Newton, Cambridge CB22 7ZE.

Optional Day 6 - Shower Bouquet

As wedding designs change each year we offer an optional day to learn in more depth the current trends.  During 2019, Day 6 will concentrate on creating a shower bouquet with cascading foliage and flowers and a natural wild style with clever choice of materials.  Day 6 is open to other students who have attended other wedding courses with us so we do recommend booking Day 6 when you book the full week to avoid disappointment. 

The course includes all the flowers, foliage, ribbons and containers that you need to complete the item(s).

You will also be provided with the following items that you can keep once the course has finished:

  • Course manual
  • Notebook and pen
  • Wedding starter kit
  • Wedding floristry apron

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

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

Lunch and all refreshments are provided everyday throughout the course.

You can book online or call the school on 01223 655661.

You can choose to pay the full fee of £975.00 for 5 days or  £1195.00 for 6 days or a deposit of £300.00 (5 days), £350.00 (6 days).  If paying a deposit the outstanding balance is due 4 weeks prior to the course.
