This course is aimed at anybody wanting to undertake wedding flowers, or jut to gain a better understanding of what can be achieved.

in the afternoon, it's bridal party flowers, how to make a bridal bouquet, how to make buttonholes, both traditional and the not so, hair flowers including the oh so fashionable headdresses.

Like the Floral Goddess course it runs from 9.30am -5pm,  all tools, flowers, tea and coffee and lunch are included.
There will also be time to chat about weddings in general, and the wedding industry, blogging, Twitter and which red lipstick we all prefer.

All the courses are held on Mondays, and a number of our local hotels offer fabulous deals for a Sunday night, so you can make a weekend of it. The town of Stamford is really quite beautiful, there is a reason it gets used in Hollywood movies and TV dramas.

N.B. All courses are held in the middle of the actual shop, a shop with a stone floor, and you will be standing for most of the day, so comfy shoes it is, and layers. sometimes it's a bit nippy.
Also The Hound is in attendance, but i cannot guarantee the availability of any of the other characters. Those hoping to discover the identity of Lapelman may be disappointed.
Places are limited and only full payment at time of booking will secure your place.
