The Advanced Certificate in Floral & Event Styling is the only one of its kind in the wedding industry and will teach you how to combine your love of design, flowers and styling ready to launch your business as a Floral & Event Stylist. Floral and event stylists create pleasing artistic compositions, using floral and botanical elements, furniture, tableware, linens and a variety of styling props. They use the principles of design (balance, proportion, rhythm, contrast, and harmony.), to create a fully styled event. They may work on projects such as wedding & event florals, editorial styled shoots, still life compositions, or commercial displays.

You will learn how to use flowers as centrepieces, design tablescapes, use inspiration boards, and learn the fine art of floral and event styling, along with the business side of things, showing you how to price and sell your services, curate images on Instagram and build a client base by creating a strong brand.

There are 25 modules in this course divided into 6 sections with 6 Assignments. You will also have access to a library of additional resources, including a detailed section called; Becoming a Wedding Stylist, by acclaimed Wedding Stylist, Louise Beukes.

It is ideal for a creative who wants to be an event styling specialist.

What is Floral Design

Floral design is a method of using fresh flowers as a key resource in your event styling. Our course introduces you to traditional and modern techniques that will allow you to design and create your own fresh floral table centrepieces, installation pieces, bridal bouquets, as well as ideas on how to use flowers in other decorative ways in an event.

How can I learn about flowers online?

In this course we provide you with the basic concepts of handling fresh flowers – how to source, handle and prepare them. For each of the main floral techniques we then provide step by step video tutorials with full commentary for you.

Is this course only suitable for someone wanting to work at weddings?

No. You can use the skills and knowledge in this course for styling all types of celebrations and special events.

Will this course help me to understand the business side of being a Floral & Event Stylist?

Yes. In this course we teach you about the 'business' of flowers and deep dive into marketing your business as a Floral & Event Stylist.

Will I have to buy flowers?

No previous floral knowledge is necessary for this course.

Should I do this course and the Certificate in Wedding Styling?
