CREATE YOUR PERFECT WEDDING FLOWERS - from imagining breathtaking wedding flowers to being surrounded by them on the big day with one of the world’s best wedding florists as your personal guide.
When you plan a wedding, so much thought goes into the right venue, but that is just the start. The venue is the space, the shell... when you start to add your individual touches, nothing is more personal and unique than the flowers. No two designs are ever the same and no two florists will ever produce the same designs – the opportunities to create something unique and extraordinary are endless.
When you create wedding flowers you are realising a dream; the flowers create the most beautiful backdrop, perfectly enhancing the space, warmly welcoming guests, beautifully complementing the bride and to create this yourself, with confidence, it is the most incredible feeling.

“Thank you for all the love and dedication that you put into making the flowers both in St George’s Chapel and St George’s Hall so incredibly beautiful. I know that you put hours of work into this project before you were able to even start thinking about the flowers, design or any of the actual creative side.
What you achieved was an extraordinary work of art, and the displays inside and outside the Chapel completely reflected the couple’s initial brief of natural and relaxed floral arrangements.
I know that The Duke and Duchess of Sussex both felt that what you did was to create something really wonderful. We all really enjoyed having the opportunity to work with you - it was a huge privilege.”

A NOTE FROM PHILIPPA
Over the last decade, I have designed and created Wedding Flowers for hundreds of brides and grooms. From the opulence and glitz of celebrity weddings, the elegance and protocol of the royal wedding, bohemian relaxed outdoor weddings with tipis and wild chefs, beach ceremonies, large Jewish weddings with extravagant chuppahs, magnificent Indian ceremonies with intricate mandaps, civil partnerships and small country church weddings.
What this means is that I have met, worked with, and listened to hundreds of brides, grooms, their families and friends, and I really do understand what is important. I will make sure the wedding flowers you create fill you and everyone with joy and happiness. I know how to manage your time to ensure the process is stress-free. Most of all, I know how important it is to you that every wedding flower design is unique and reflects your style and ethos.
Whilst this course contains 9 designs, each one will look unique for you. I teach in a way to give you the confidence to easily adapt every design. I guide you from the very beginning, by helping you to choose your flowers, create them with your own style and taste, and be bolder and more excited than you ever imagined you could be with your flowers. I want the planning, making and the day itself to fill you with happiness.
Every wedding fills me with joy and promise, and I love making wedding flower dreams come true. Every design I share with you is tried and tested. I have thought through every behind-the-scenes circumstance to ensure the day runs smoothly and stress-free. If you join me in my Masterclass, and I really, really hope you do, then I know you will feel confident and really enjoy creating your designs.
I have poured all my experience, knowledge, inspiration and love into this course and I absolutely love it. I hope you do too. I can’t wait to welcome you.
With huge love,
“I am totally smitten by Philippa's work. Philippa opened my eyes to floristry. I started following her on Instagram. I have always loved flowers but never thought I could do anything with it. I would never have dreamt of signing up to a course and I thought long and hard about investing almost £500. But I am so happy I did it, it's so worth it."
“I was absolutely mesmerised by the beauty of the combination of the flowers. Furthermore, it was great to see your enjoyment in creating it even though you must have done hundreds of them previously. Thank you for explaining and demonstrating so clearly."
“This course has been absolutely amazing! You share so much and it has helped me enormously. I am inspired! Thank you so much."
“You are inspirational! I have enjoyed every design and love the fact I can watch when it suits me and also rewatch as often as I wish. It’s good to have the downloads too and the costings. Thank you."
“You make everything appear to be so simple. I Just love your style and approach to learning ... I am learning so much.... we are all so lucky to be able to benefit from your expertise."
“The tutorials are incredible, so clear and full of useful and important tips. I love watching your work, it is immensely inspiring. Thank you!"
“Known for her work with brands such as Chopard, Patek Philippe and Bvlgari, you can throw anything at Philippa, including - as has happened - a demand for 40,000 pink roses for an event with only a few days’ notice. She’s a floral mastermind.”
“Philippa Craddock knows how to make an entrance. The self-taught florist was responsible for the cascading arch of greenery that decorated the facade of St George’s Chapel, in Windsor, for Harry and Meghan’s wedding. She has just launched an incredible new series of online Workshops, ensuring you have the skills and knowledge to create perfect design.”
“A genius in the world of floristry, Philippa Craddock has produced inspirational displays for the likes of Tiffany & Co., Jo Malone and Lancôme, and was appointed for five years as Selfridges’ only florist, where she created jaw-droopingly gorgeous bouquets.”
“Philippa knows how to make an entrance ... and it may come as a surprise that ten years ago, the self-taught florist who’s worked with the likes of Hermès, Alexander McQueen, and Kensington Palace (she designed Prince Harry and Meghan Markle’s royal wedding flowers), had just begun experimenting with the art of arrangements. In this short time, she’s risen to the top.”
