Portlands Florist was established in 2006 by Nicola Falco.
With a background in Art & Design and several years experience working for other Florists in Europe and at home in London, it was time for Nicola to step into her own business and create her own path. She opened the doors to her first shop on Great Portland Street Station in the heart of Regents Park and Marylebone. It didn’t take long for Portlands to grow and Nicola built a great reputation for her excellent eye for detail and conscientious work. After eight happy years on Great Portland Street, an ever growing client list and high demand for Events, Nicola decided to move to larger premises.
Now working from her studio in North London she can focus completely on each project without any distraction. From the very first meeting to the last flower placed, Nicola will be with you every step of the way.
“How does she do it alone?!”
With over 20 years experience within the trade Nicola has built great friendships and business relationships with a team of experienced florists, that are passionate about bringing Portlands vision to life. So when working on larger scale Weddings and Events a team are ready to create with her.
Every Event large or small has very different requirements and budgets. This is part of the enjoyment for Nicola. To create something completely bespoke is a real passion and pleasure.
From the first point of contact with maybe a colour scheme, specific flower, theme or company logo Nicola will begin the design process. She will articulate your requirements with the finest quality flowers, foliage, sundries and props to represent your brand image and vision with stunning arrangements and installations anywhere in the U.K.

Your Wedding Day is going to be one of the most important days of your life with memories that will last a lifetime. Your Wedding flowers play an important part of the day, so every effort is made to design your flowers in such a way that is completely personal to you.
We cater for all UK Wedding venues up and down the country and of course at home in London. If you would like Nicola to visit your Wedding venue with you, then please do let her know and this can be scheduled in.
From Grand Hotel Wedding’s, Marquee Weddings, River Boat Weddings, Country Club Weddings, Civil Ceremonies, Woodland Weddings, Small intimate Weddings or just a Bridal bouquet and Buttonholes, there is no Wedding too big or too small. Nicola will do her very best to accommodate all budgets leaving no detail unturned.
Every Wedding is unique so for your initial consultation Nicola prefers to speak with you in person, via video call or telephone call to discuss your requirements and special wishes. She can then pass on advice and inspiration and start to create truly magnificent Wedding flowers!
She will be on hand from beginning to end.
As well as catering for Corporate Events and Weddings, Nicola also offers at home services. Lunch, Brunch and Dinner parties, Garden parties and Kids Parties are all an absolute joy to design and bring to life.
With an Aladdins cave of sundries, ceramics, glassware and props Nicola will transform any space for you.
If you haven’t got a clear picture in your head or are unsure how to articulate your ideas then hopefully this guide of Portlands popular items will help you along.
The items shown can be made in any size, colour scheme or style to suit and are all made to order, so please feel free to contact Nicola for more information.
