I never find it easy to blow my own trumpet so I’ll let some of the wonderful people I’ve had the pleasure to meet, teach or mentor do it for me!
For me 3 weddings in 3 days is the most comprehensive short course out there. I can’t recommend it enough. Sabine has an incredible way of making every project seem tailor made for you, even though you are working in a group setting. Her knowledge is endless – there is literally no question she can’t answer. The flower and prop quality is excellent, you have a model to pose with all personal and group work, and the photos you receive shortly after the course are beautiful. Each day is jam packed. It is worth every penny and much more rewarding then other courses I have been on.

“I would just like to say a massive thank you for all the ongoing support and help you have given me since I met with you in June.
Your advice has been invaluable, I have managed to turn my business around into making profit in such a short space of time and you have helped me regain my confidence.
I really can’t thank you enough. You are definitely my idol in the flower world.”

“After spending considerable time looking into a suitable floristry course which catered for my need and learning requirements I was delighted to have found Sabine.
I had already completed a 3 year OCN floristry course at my local college but felt I needed something extra which would enable me to progress further.
After attending my first course with Sabine I was totally blown away by her enthusiasm and passion for floristry.
I now have a successful floristry business which has gone from strength to strength, I can honestly say that without Sabine’s experience, helpful advice and guidance I would not be in the position that I am now.
I learnt so much more than I did attending 3 years of evening classes.”

“Sabine imparts her extensive knowledge, experience and techniques and you always come away with new skills and feel energised to try new ideas. An innovator if ever there was one!”

I am still buzzing now and feeling so inspired and excited about recreating some of the designs. You taught me so much with all your top tips and time saving advice! You are such a good teacher and despite my ability to make things more complicated I was able to recreate some amazing designs that I felt proud of.
. I am so glad I did this course and will definitely be joining you on another one in the future. It really is one of the best courses have ever been on!

I love attending courses, I try and go on 3 or 4 a year, but yours really are the best I’ve been on so far. So inspiring which is mainly down to your teaching style and creativity

I truly believe that we never stop learning, and despite
being in the industry a few years already, there was so much inspiration and information in these three days that I’m starting to think about when I can next fit in another course! Sabine is so generous with her time, not holding anything back and really telling it how it is. Her passion is obvious and overflowing, and her no-fuss, get-it-done-the-easiest-way approach is refreshing amongst a sea of old hands who tell you you’re only a proper florist if you wire everything!
The nuts and bolts of the job are really the focus here. When we weren’t working on fabulous large-scale designs and mechanics, in depth discussion about best business practices, finances, pricing, ordering, logistics and client communication were so useful, and Sabine left no question unanswered.
There is nothing that can replicate good old fashioned hours on the job, and to have someone with so much experience share her knowledge is such a gift for those near the beginning of our careers. I can’t wait to put all the tricks and tips I’ve learned into practice.”

I just wanted to say thanks for such a great and informative day, I felt I gained a lot from the day and it really helped me develop my confidence in what I can do as well, and it was so lovely to chat to you afterwards,

Thank you so much for sharing your knowledge and advice so freely and for helping me with working in such a different style – what was well outside of my comfort zone is now an extra string to my bow! Was such fun and have made some firm friends too.

“I can highly recommend Sabine and her course and it was certainly worthwhile to fly half way round the world to attend. 3 Weddings in 3 Days is a very efficient, effective and intensive course. Sabine and her team are very professional; she is a very good teacher, generous in imparting her skills, insight, knowledge and insider’s tips. Sabine is very energetic, with endless amounts of positive energy, very hospitable and it was an absolute pleasure to get to share a couple of days with her. I was also very impressed by the wonderful photos that Katie, the professional photographer took of us and our creations. I can’t wait to be able to put my newly learnt skills into practice.
Lucia Yan (Hong Kong)
Not only have I taken away a wide range of practical skills and techniques but I have also gained business skills. These ranges from presentation of work, photo shoots, how to achieve good relationships with wholesalers, customers and using the network of professional florists.
This course and your enthusiasm has inspired, motivated and given me confidence to return home and start my new Business.
The whole experience was fabulous from the minute I arrived. Everyone was so friendly and supportive.
The course was well thought out planned and organized. Content was superb. The whole experience was everything I thought it would be and more.

3 Weddings in 3 Days is an exceptional course. To be provided with the opportunity to develop your floristry skills on location with the benefit of an experienced; creative and generous tutor on hand, is truly an ideal learning experience. Sabine herself is a very a special person and an extraordinary teacher. As a teacher myself, I know that people often believe that because they can do, they can also teach. This is not always the case, but Sabine has both – she is kind and generous with her knowledge, and also a fabulous florist as well. She has boundless energy which is infectious, and her guidance and praise are real and informative. In addition to this, her patience is also never ending, and I tested this a lot! I would wholeheartedly recommend this course to all florists or budding florists wishing to learn new skills; improve their current skills, or just for a fabulous time with lovely like minded people.
