When can I start the course?

You have up to 2 years to complete your course although it can be completed in 6 months or less if you have more hours per week to dedicate to study.

How do you teach the practical styling skills?

Our practical courses contain ‘how to’ video demos and tablescape design examples so you can follow along and practice your styling skills at home. You’d be surprised what you can find around your house that can be styled together to create a great table design. 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 to be creative to take the course?

No, creativity isn’t a prerequisite. If you are highly organized and great at planning but you don’t consider yourself a creative person, don’t be put off taking the course. All you need is a passion for all things wedding related and an eye for details, the rest can be developed as you work through your course. And if you are already creative you will love this course as it’s the perfect outlet for all your designs and ideas.

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 instalments. However, if you are able to pay in full you will make the most saving on your course fees.
