Fancy Faux

Let Your Dreams Blossom

At Fancy Faux, we love flowers

Our array of beautiful designs are expertly crafted to ensure your wedding is simply unforgettable. 

After a wonderful thirty years of working in the wedding industry creating fresh floral designs, Beverley Nichols and her team decided to dive into the world of faux flowers. Combining years of floral expertise, passion and a solution for brides on a budget, Fancy Faux was born.

The Vision

Large floral installations certainly create the wow factor, but with the ever-increasing cost of fresh flowers, it’s becoming more and more difficult to create the lavish designs dreamed of, without breaking the bank. So, Fancy Faux was crafted with the focus of allowing couples to create their dream vision, at a fraction of the price of fresh flowers.

Created with the highest quality silk blooms, our range of beautiful designs embody all four seasons, with a variety of colour palettes and styles, from elegant and classic, to meadowy and ethereal. The arrangements can be enhanced with additional flowers, foliage or colours to pair perfectly with your style and theme.

From rambling arches and hanging ceilings, blossoming trees and stunning centrepieces, our diverse range of designs will ensure a breathtaking backdrop for your special day. We can also design bespoke bridal bouquets and buttonholes, which will remain a lasting token of your wedding day.

Fresh flowers are beautiful, but are they green?

Our faux flowers are far kinder to the planet than fresh flowers. Due to their lifelong longevity, artificial flowers can be transported more slowly and are therefore usually shipped by sea, rather than air. This method of shipment has a far greener footprint.
By comparison, transporting one pound of artificial roses produces one-twentieth the amount of emissions as shipping one pound of real roses. Chemical fertilisers, pesticides, plastic and waste are a huge problem in the fresh floral industry.
Our flowers are chemical-free and planet friendly. Faux flowers are delivered once, made into beautiful designs and then hired to our clients. With virtually non-existent waste, every flower and foliage stem can be lovingly reused, time and again.

Summer Sun, Shine On…

With summers becoming warmer, ensuring fresh flowers stay at their most beautiful can be tricky, especially when used in typically warm venues, such as marquees.

Our faux flowers are fear-free, staying at their most perfect all day, without the worry of wilting as the sun shines. They are also hypoallergenic, so you can breathe easy.

Another benefit of faux flowers is that they can be set up in advance of the big day and will stay picture perfect for as long as need be.

Bev Nichols

Beverley Nichols has worked as a floral designer for over 30 years, after obtaining the ICSF (Intermediate Certificate Society of Floristry) in the early 90’s.  After freelancing in London for some of the UK’s best known florists and working on royal birthday celebrations and celebrity weddings at exclusive venues such as Claridges, Four Seasons and The Savoy, she launched her own wedding and event floristry business.

After working with gorgeous fresh flowers for many years Beverley has seen the need for brides to be able to hire stunning faux designs. With the ever increasing cost of fresh flowers due to conditions such as Brexit, increasing air fares and the low pound, Beverley saw a need to be able to provide a collection of beautiful faux designs that not only cost roughly a third of fresh flowers but also help to save the planet. After initial purchase there are no more air miles involved with your flowers. Fresh flowers are imported from every corner of the World via Holland and arrive each week at English wholesalers – with faux flowers there is no need for this and there is no waste at the end of your event.

Beverley and her team will deliver set up and collect your beautiful designs after you have enjoyed them for your big day.
