Rambling Summer Meadow Arch + Bridal Bouquets – 18th June 2019
Join Jennie Evans from Liberty Lane and Sarah Wilson from Compton Garden Flowers on Tuesday, 18th June for what will be a dream floral escape day at Sarah’s flower farm in Compton Dando, Somerset. There will be so many flowers in bloom; from lacy Orlaya, scented Honeysuckle, trailing sweet peas and the first of the garden roses. We start the day with whimsical garden bridal bouquets, then together we will create a large scale, wild and rambling floral arch with a meadow flower walkway, all captured by a fine art photographer for you to add to your portfolio.

We will begin the morning with a tour of the flower farm, cups of tea in hand, while we are talked through all the incredible flowers that Sarah is growing this season. Jennie will then demonstrate a wild and natural bridal bouquet design, all cut from the flower field, after which you will then be able to snip some of the most special blooms before starting on your own creations. You can go as wild and whimsical as you like and finish with some of Sarah’s incredible scented garden roses which will be in their first flush of the season.
We will then break for a picnic lunch out in the flower field, before starting the afternoon session. Sarah will demonstrate how to create a natural, foam free meadow with taller, billowing varieties, before you make your own individual designs to take home. Together we will then create a large scale floral arch, packed full of arching branches, trailing foliage, freshly cut garden flowers and rambling roses and use our meadows to create a floral walkway to finish the design. All of this, as well as your individual bridal bouquet designs, will be captured by Faye Taylor for you to add her beautiful images to your portfolio.
This class is for absolutely anyone who loves flowers; no experience is needed, and it is also suitable for florists who are looking to learn a more natural bouquet and installation technique.
