The Manchester Central Convention Centre buzzed with excitement when this was all over and the semi-finalists were announced. Below you can see the result of their fourth design. Which one would you prefer as a bridal design?

Task 4: Our Clouds – Bridal Design
On Friday afternoon, the competitors created enchanting bridal designs, as eloquently described by Terri Guillemets, a quotation anthologist: "Clouds are the imagination of the sky." Delicate and ethereal, these designs will embody the romantic spirit and the ephemeral nature of clouds. Witness the transformation of flowers into symbols of love and dreams.

The theme of the Interflora World Cup 2023
The overall theme of this year’s competition was ‘Our Natural World’. Each task has been created to show love and respect for the beautiful planet we live on as well as to capture the imagination of the competitors and show visitors how florists cherish nature and the environment.
All competitors were asked to concentrate on sustainability and natural materials in their designs.
They’re all the best in the business. There were a total of six heats altogether across the three days, including the Semi-Final evening on Friday 8th September, and the Grand Final evening on Saturday 9th September. Each task had a different theme and a quote to convey with the design, and three of them were kept completely under wraps until just before the timer started.
Craftmanship and Passion Behind Each Masterpiece
If you visited the event on Saturday’s exhibition day, you’d have the chance to see over 100 mind-blowing floral designs created throughout the competition so far. You would have witnessed the evolution of floral artistry and gained a deeper understanding of the craftsmanship and passion behind each masterpiece. Perhaps you have even taken the exclusive opportunity to speak to all contestants in their booths and ask them any questions you may have had about their floral art.
