A hands-on workshop where you and members of your bridal party will learn all the basic skills needed to DIY your wedding flowers, including the practicalities of ensuring your flowers look their absolute best for your special day.
The workshop will last approximately 6 hours, including a short break for lunch. Students will learn to create a bridal bouquet and a complementary bridesmaid’s bouquet, buttonholes and a simple table centrepiece. We’ll also cover how to make a gift bouquet to give as a thank you gift.
You will learn how to select suitable flowers, where to source flowers, how to condition stems before use and how to care for your completed arrangement. Flowers and arrangement type will be selected based on your wedding colour scheme and style wherever possible (please advise at time of booking).
