I met Benjamina from INDECO FLOWERS at a DE BEERS press day where she taught myself and other journalists to make our own floral bouquets that we got to take home. Benjamina was so lovely and I learnt so much about floral arrangements in such a short amount of time that I kept her details close to hand.

When I found out that she hosted a floral crown workshops in London I couldn’t miss out. I had just had my wisdom tooth removed (hence the puffy face) but it was a great day and gave a true insight in to the craftsmanship of floral crowns… I now understand why fresh floral crowns are so expensive to buy, but they are truly worth it for a special occasion.

THE WORKSHOP

We picked our flowers…

And the hardest part was assembling the crown and keeping the flowers intact (we had a few retakes) and making sure they looked neat and tidy once attached…
