How to DO a Wedding

Suitable for all levels

Are you doing your daughter's wedding? Do you feel that you need to find out a bit more before committing to a longer course? Are you helping a friend do her wedding? Have you done some general training and now want to specialise?

On this intensive 2-day course you will learn the fundamental floristry and logistical skills to get you up and running. An exciting opportunity to really immerse yourself in the world of floristry guided by Georgia who has many years' experience in the business. You will still need to practice and perfect your skills but you will have all the information/contacts and support you need to say yes with confidence! View it as an injection of courage and confidence and, more importantly, an unmasking of the secrets of the floral world.
