More and more couples are going green when it comes to planning their wedding.  With weddings taking place in more natural surroundings, more and more brides are opting for a more rustic style with overflowing foliage, sustainable sourced flowers and designs that are foam free.

This two day course explores the options available concentrating on recycling, biodegradable and environmentally friendly.  Full of innovative ideas that are perfect for more sustainable weddings with a truly rustic feel!

The topics covered:
The venue requirements
Sourcing flowers and foliage - what to use and how to get it
Loose, natural bouquets
Eco-friendly table design and settings
Dressing the venue - completely foam free
Props and hire

The course is a mix of hands-on practical skills, demonstration and theory.  Designs that are individually created can be taken home.

The course includes all the flowers, foliage and sundry items that you need to complete the item.

If you wish to purchase tools and sundries, we have these available and can be purchased during the session.

Refreshments including a light lunch and homemade cake are included in the fee.  If you have any specific dietary requirements it is important to let us know at least 14 days prior to the start of the course so we can inform our caterer.

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

The full fee is £450.00
