A woman has asked me to make the cake in the attached picture for her wedding. I really don't have any ideas on how to do the floral piping on the sides except with freehand piping. Is there a technique I can use to make this easier? Perhaps a stencil or something?

That looks more like stenciling

It almost looks like wallpaper. Maybe if you find a pattern you like, like a wallpaper or a scrapbooking paper, you can use it to pin-transfer the pattern to the cake, and then pipe over. Would be hugely labour intensive though. The flowers look like they are brush embroidery.
