Level: Complete Beginners/New Skills
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.
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 with large impressive rooms.
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 2020, 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 (or have previous experience of wiring and taping) so we do recommend booking Day 6 when you book the full week to avoid disappointment.
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 take home all the designs you create during the week.
You can book online or call the school on 01223 655661.
5 Day Course is £975.00 (£300.00 deposit)
6 Day Course is £1175.00 (£350.00 deposit)
If paying a deposit the outstanding balance is due 14 days prior to the start of course.
