Join Georgie on this seasonally specific workshop as she prepares a winter wedding, with all British grown flowers which will have been delivered from specialist suppliers she recommends.
Prepping a wedding in winter is different because the material is not the same as that we use in the summer and does need dealing with in a particular way.
All the flowers for our winter weddings are ordered in as we don’t have a cut flower garden in production in winter. They arrive dry in boxes and need conditioning carefully along with seasonal foliage cut from the garden.
We’ll be looking at timings, quantities, as well as making a bride’s bouquet, a bridesmaid posy and the first of the buttonholes, while keeping plenty of material to one side for a gorgeous wintry tablescape.
Let’s think about light, colour, ribbon, scheduling, and everything a florist needs to consider when creating a very special day in deep winter.
This roughly two hour session takes place on zoom and will include plenty of time for questions and costs £95 per person. There will be a maximum of fifteen students taking part.
Participants will receive a link to a recording of the session afterwards, as well as notes on all the topics covered in the workshop.

Most of our flowers and foliage are grown on our flower farm in Somerset. During some of the winter months we order flowers from our flower farming friends in other parts of the country. We only ever use British grown flowers. Our flowers are cut from the farm fresh each morning, before being arranged and sent for next day delivery.
Because our flowers are picked fresh each day, each of our bouquets is totally unique. Although we can't guarantee a particular flower or colour scheme in your bouquet please let us know if you have any particular requests and we will do our best to meet them. We promise that your bouquet will be fresh and beautiful.
