I thoroughly enjoyed the Purely Weddings course. All tutors were very nice and lovely to talk with, they were experienced, and provided us with all the right guidance with a very thorough knowledge on floristry. It was a very fun course to be apart of. I was also so impressed with the quality of the flower/plant materials that were used as I still was able to use them to practise with, nearly one week on!
