Background and experience
An award-winning floral stylist and qualified florist, Helen Dillon has a life-long love of flowers.
Her first job, straight out of high school was as an apprentice florist and, 30 years later, she’s now a master of the art.
In that time, she’s travelled Europe, creating floral artworks for weddings, parties and corporate spectacles.
Helen’s floral arrangements have appeared at some of Australia’s premier events, including in the most exclusive marquees at Melbourne’s Grand Prix and Spring Racing Carnival as well as various celebrity weddings and, of course, thousands of other events.
Helen estimates that during her career, she’s created more than 15,000 unique pieces of every size, shape and colour, from simple bouquets and single-flower boutonnieres to 12-foot-high extravaganzas containing more than 1000 flowers.
There aren’t too many plants, flowers or types of foliage Helen hasn’t worked with and the fact they may not be in season – or in Australia – rarely stops her. She’s even been known to source plants for Asia and South America to fulfill a client’s wishes.
I’ve done thousands of weddings, but every single one is unique and an absolute a joy for me,’’ says Helen who hand picks every petal and bloom from Melbourne’s flower markets three times a week.
Every bride and groom is different and I don’t think I’ve ever used the exactly same combination for a single wedding!” she adds
