Graduate Experiences

When I was first looking into starting my Wedding & Event Planning career with the North American Academy, I had very recently just made a HUGE career switch for a much brighter, happier future, and I was beyond scared & overwhelmed. The Academy is what really eased my professional transition, making the material easy to understand. Since the completion of my courses, I have tackled a number of different positions in the wedding industry, including catering & bartending, venue management, bridal consulting, & even modelling! I’ve recently created a blog that I plan on turning into my future wedding planning business, All in the Details | Weddings & Special Events!

FAQS

Is the Diploma in Floral and Event Styling the right course for me?

This course is perfect for anyone with a love of all things pretty who want to develop their creative skills across the areas of styling and floral design in the event industry. We attract a range of students from those who have no prior experience and want to develop their creative skills with a view to starting their own styling and floral business, all the way through to students who are already working in a creative industry such as interior design, photography or fashion who are branching out to add an alternative income stream to their existing business or are planning a change in direction in their business. It is ideal for a creative who wants to be an event styling specialist. In this course we teach you about the 'business' of flowers and deep dive into marketing your business as a Floral & Event Stylist.

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.

When can I start the course?

All our courses are online which gives you the flexibility to learn anywhere and at times that suits you. So you really can fit your course around your lifestyle. Many of our students study whilst having a full time job and/or looking after a family. You have up to 2 years to complete your course although it can be completed in 6 months or less.

How do you teach the practical floral and styling skills?

This course contains ‘how to’ video demos and styling examples so you can follow along and practice your floral and styling skills at home. This course does include a practical component, which means that you will need to purchase flowers to complete your designs. Our assignments also require you to put what you learn into practice, creating mood-boards, storyboards, color palettes, layout plans, budgets, client proposals and more.

Do I need previous floral experience?

No previous floral knowledge is necessary for this course. 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 there any help I can get with course fees?

Yes! We know that paying for your course when you have other financial commitments can be a strain so we have designed a variety of payment plans to allow you to spread the cost over 6 or 12 monthly installments. However, if you are able to pay in full you will make the most saving on your course fees.

Is this course only suitable for someone wanting to work in the wedding industry?

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