Born in Dublin I was introduced to this wonderful trade very early on in life, my grandmother Anastasia had her own flower shop in Dublin city. As a young child I spent many happy and memorable weekends helping her and was totally in awe of her wonderful talent and passion for flowers. After leaving school I took the same path and started my training in a large chain of flower shops, learning the trade from a very junior level moving up eventually to managing my own shop.
After marrying and moving to Scotland and with the unfaltering support and push from my Husband Philip to follow my dream and open up my own flower shop, Helensburgh Flowers was born. I have been trading now for over 20 years in Helensburgh and during this time I have seen us grow into one of the areas premier wedding florists, an achievement I am very proud of. So despite the early starts, cold workroom and prickly holly at Christmas ( not a fan)! I feel very lucky to do a job I genuinely love and have a passion for.
