Covent Garden Academy of Flowers: Advanced Bridal Course

When you are given the opportunity to study at the Covent Garden Academy of Flowers you book the next train to London straight away. I was lucky enough to be given a place at the wonderful Four Day Advanced Wedding Course to learn how to nurture my floristry skills and learn new techniques just in time for wedding season.

Day 1 was filled with creating bespoke hand tied bouquets (my favorite).

"Everybody loves a hand tied bouquet!" exclaimes Gillian Wheeler, the co founder and principle of the Academy, and don't they just. With a vast array of wonderfuly fresh flowers and foliage to choose from we were asked to make a hand tied bridal bouquet that displayed our personality. Of course my bouquet was big, bright and bold.

Day 2 was terrific as we were asked to imagine what we would like for our centerpeices at our own imaginary wedding. As a bride to be myself I found this day liberating and created my own dream table center with fresh lisianthus, fragrant waxflour and eucalyptus.

Day 3 saw me venture into the wonderful world of wiring. Although I may not find myself wiring very often at home, I found it a great skill in helping me think outside the box for future corporate flower displays and head pieces.

Day 4: At my final day of school we were asked to make a bespoke bridal bouquet with endless varieties of fresh flowers and foliage. After a hard days work, we said our goodbyes, bouquets in hand and I headed for the train.
