People love to arrange their own wedding flowers, and this is a great day to help you learn how to do just that.
Georgie will take you through the planning, the stem count, the timings, as well as teach you clever ways to make sure the flowers at the wedding are stunning, but you aren’t completely worn out doing them. From tying the bride’s bouquet, to posies and buttonholes, to looking at what table centres work for your day, to seeing how you can be efficient with your flowers, maybe doubling up with flowers from the ceremony becoming flowers at the reception, Georgie will help you turn the bride and groom’s flowery dream into a practical reality.
The workshop takes place between 10am-3pm at Common Farm, BA9 8HN.
The cost includes lunch at a local farm shop, so please advise us of any food allergies / intolerances at the time of booking. Please bring any mid morning / afternoon snacks you might like.

There will be a maximum of 10 people on the workshop.

Please wear clothes suitable for the weather (layers, waterproof clothes) and bring shoes / boots that are designed to walk on rough grassy paths.

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.
