Clare’s Faux Flowers sell high quality hand tied faux flowers for all occasions. I make bouquets for weddings, centrepieces and buttonholes. I also do wreaths for funerals, which I then break down and make posies for the family to keep as a reminder of their loved one. I also make wreaths for Christmas, and faux flowers for all occasions.

What do you love about tiny weddings?

I have only just started the business and feel that tiny weddings are the way forward for me. It means that I can give full attention to the needs of the bride and groom.

How do you think the couples are different when working with a large wedding versus a tiny wedding?

I think small weddings don’t necessarily get the coverage they deserve. Couples can give more time and energy to a smaller wedding making sure everything is perfect.

What are the main differences in the way you do business when dealing with a tiny wedding?

I have only really worked with people planning small occasions, I haven’t worked on big events, and I find that smaller events suit me well.

What are your goals in supplying a small wedding?

I would like to create flowers that make the wedding party happy and remember their special day, in a way that they would not want to go back to real flowers again.

Tell us a little about yourself and what you make.

My Fabric Flowers came into being about eighteen months ago as I wanted to create alternative handmade bridal bouquets, making them with fabric, buttons, brooches, embellishments, lace and ribbons and any other articles I can find.   They are bespoke and one-offs so you will never see another one the same.  They can also be displayed as a centrepiece on a table or grouped together as a fabric flower decoration.  Shabby chic,  boho, vintage wedding themes are very popular with my clients.

What do you like about tiny weddings?

Small weddings are very interesting as they can be more intimate and can allow for more expression of the the couple in their decoration or where they choose to hold their wedding.  The larger the wedding the venue has to come into play and questions of can everyone fit into the church and what is wanted or would like to have has to take second place to a certain extent.

Do you think smaller weddings are on the rise?

Smaller weddings really do suit some people, so I hope it will continue.  But often couples might feel guilty, or pressured to invite all of their family and friends.

What sort of tiny weddings would especially like to be involved in?

A woodland wedding with the trees lit up and all the tables decorated would be lovely to be involved with.

Have you been involved in smaller weddings, what did you do?

I have been involved with a couple of tiny weddings which have been easier to manage and provide bouquets and decorations for.  One of my clients had her reception in her own large garden.  The other wedding was also using the clients’ garden and having a background of the river, it was a great venue.
