The Story

Starting from humble beginnings and an after school job, Gillian began a career which would see her work at some of Melbourne’s most prestigious and respected floral establishments.

Over the years she has worked in busy retail environments, on large scale events, in five star hotels and at Melbourne’s finest private homes.

In 2009 Gillian Pollard Designs was born, as a side project, doing a few small weddings for family and friends. More and more weddings followed and it has developed into a full time operation, now run from our studio in Heidelberg West.

Together with her ever growing team of staff they work hard to provide flowers that are not only fabulous but respect each clients individual style and taste. The gang pride themselves on not being locked into one style.  From rustic vineyards and country locations, to formal inner city establishments, each job we undertake has it’s own unique design brief.

Nic

The (self-proclaimed) non-creative Nicole is your first port of call. We don't hold it against her as she spends her work day locked in the cupboard under the stairs making phone calls and sending emails. She is the scheduler, the emailer, the one who takes your calls and the one to keep the creatives on task.

Favourite part of the job: Of course working for my super talented (and better looking) little sister!
