OUR STORY

Wild Heart Events is a boutique event design and styling studio, specialising in weddings and other special events. We are based in the Dandenong Ranges in Melbourne, founded and run by Creative Director Danielle Steele.

Wild Heart Events is the culmination of a life-long love of art, design, colour and creating beautiful things, coupled with an obsession with flowers and all things botanical.

With qualifications and 10 year stints working in two different, but equally creative industries (Advertising then Interior Design), Danielle stepped away to invest her time in a role she had long been looking forward to - being a new mother.

During her time away from the corporate world, Danielle also planned and designed her own wedding, which took place in 2014. She thoroughly enjoyed all elements of the creative design and planning process, as well as handling all the set-up and styling of her venue in the two days prior, with the invaluable help of family and friends. The day after her wedding at the gorgeous Swallowfield Vineyards in Gembrook, the venue owner enquired whether Danielle would be interested in coming on board as the in-house Stylist. Being now well aware of what a monumental job the planning and design, then set up and styling, for a large event can be – and realising not everyone is willing or able to take this on - Wild Heart Events was born.

After many years of playing with flowers, further recent studies in Floral Design under highly regarded Floral Designer Sarah Winward (based in Salt Lake City, Utah) and a number of invaluable creative workshops, including an Ivory Tribe 'Rural Romance' Masterclass and 'Field & Flourish' with Cecilia Fox, have led to Wild Heart Events offering full floral design and styling for weddings and special events. Danielle works alongside a talented team of experienced florists, who are hand-picked for each event.

With Wild Heart Events, Danielle feels she has found her true calling, bringing together all of her past professional experience, studies and passions into the one business. Danielle enjoys working collaboratively with her clients to create weddings and special events that are unique, beautiful and truly memorable.

When Danielle is not working you can find her enjoying time with her little boy, husband and dog at the nearest park, attempting to keep her huge and unruly garden under control or enjoying a glass of wine. She loves yoga, Sunday brunch, travel and long walks and is very much looking forward to the next additions to her family - four chickens coming very soon.
