Our Team

Experience meets creativity

At Wild Cherry, events are what we do. Planning, styling, creating and innovating. Whatever your event, we at Wild Cherry can assist you to it make it memorable for everyone who attends. When we take on an event our philosophy is that each event is unique and so we individualise them and make no two events the same. We understand that each person and business has their own ideas and dreams and we will work with you to bring these to life. 

Wild Cherry can organise all aspects of special events including catering, decorations, floral arrangements, unique styling, invitations, balloons and more. We are also highly experienced in running all aspects of corporate events and are able to manage registrations, sponsorships, venues and catering, themed dinners and product launches. 

Whether a high tea for 10 close friends, party for 50, fundraising gala ball for 200 or conference for 400, Wild Cherry Events combines experience with creativity to deliver chic, flawless and memorable events. With seamless organisation, outstanding design, innovative ideas and a personable approach, Wild Cherry Events are your premier event planners. Wild Cherry will walk with you from event inception to completion – bringing your ideas to life, in always ‘one-of-a-kind’ special events. We at Wild Cherry Events are creative, savvy, versatile, dependable and truly love what we do – each event is an opportunity for us to create something amazing – and that’s what we do!
