Important Information:  As from 19th July 2021 social distancing rules will be relaxed.  However, for the safety and comfort of all we are requesting that all students attending continue to wear a face mask.    

Level: Beginners/New Career Path 

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 quantities needed, as well as 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.  

The Wedding Career Course covers completely different topics to our Floristry Career Course.

We also offer a separate course for Wedding and Event Design which covers large scale designs suitable for marquees, country houses and venues requiring bespoke decoration.

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 (invaluable reference for all the theory elements of the course)
  • Notebook and pen
  • Wedding floristry starter kit
  • Wedding floristry apron
  • Course completion certificate
  • References if required
  • Invitation to our student floristry group

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!)

You will need to bring a packed lunch with you each day.  

You can take home all the designs you create during the week.

Optional Day 6 - Shower Bouquet

As wedding designs change each year we offer an optional day to learn in more depth the current trends.  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. 

"I have really enjoyed the course this week.  Very informative and learnt so much!  It's great if you are looking to start up your own business with the mix of theory and practical.  Sarah and Claire are great teachers and are really helpful with everything!  Cannot wait to come back and do another course."
