About River and Eve flora
River & Eve flora is a Sutherland Shire based, boutique floral design studio run by Kathleen Steele. Flowering all over Sydney as well as in the Southern Highlands, South Coast and Blue Mountains. River & Eve specializes in intentional, romantic florals for weddings, events and editorial shoots.
The essence of River & Eve flora comes from the love of natural, seasonal beauty. Kathleen wholeheartedly believes in the extraordinary, ancient power that plants and flowers have to make people feel happy and connect them with nature. Florals are essential markers of emotions and play a role in key events and milestones.
Kathleen works with local growers, and grows in her own micro flower farm to design with unique and beautiful ingredients.
When it comes to weddings, River & Eve flora welcomes couples from all backgrounds and celebrates love in all its forms. As plants and their flowers are an expression in form of that which is formless; love.
Kathleen is one of the loveliest people I’ve ever met. The morning came & Kathleen arrived early & brought the most STUNNING bouquet, it was everything I imagined. I especially loved it because each flower had a little story behind how/where it was grown or preserved.
Thank you Kathleen for everything! I highly recommend River & Eve Flora for any florals you may need. Kathleen’s work is inspiring and unique and filled with love.

Thanks to Kathleen, I was still able to wed with beautiful flowers even after my wedding was downsized due to COVID-19! Thank you so much for adding artistry to my day - they really made it special. From our initial chat to the design to the delivery, everything was as smooth as can be and it just took all the stress away. I do not hesitate in recommending River & Eve flora to all future brides!! x

Kat's designs are incredible, rustic and ooze effortlessness whilst still being sophisticated and classy. Its so hard to find that sort of style - everything is so "done" rather than accepting of natural beauty. Kat is so passionate about what she does even growing her own flowers - i think that is proof in the pudding!
Kate & Wes
River & Eve Flora arranged both my bridal bouquet and bridesmaid bouquets and I could not have been happier. As someone who knows very little about flowers I let Kathleen take full creative reins and do what she thought was best, they were absolutely beautiful and worked amazingly with my dress and the bridesmaid dresses. 100% recommend River & Eve Flora for any occasion!

We couldn't have asked for more!
Even with a very vague brief, Kat knew what I wanted before I did & created the bouquet of my dreams that I will treasure forever.
Thu & Aaron
Kathleen was the florist for our wedding. She worked with us to stay within our budget and create a beautiful floral decor for our garden wedding. She went above and beyond to ensure that the flowers were protected before the wedding and set up properly. She even offered to remove them herself so that they could be disposed of in an eco-friendly way. Now for the juicy details: the flower scheme was warm colours - oranges, pinks, creams. None of the table arrangements were identical - Kathleen went to extra effort to ensure that they were each unique, which created an amazing look when they were all set up. The flowers looked different from every other wedding I’ve been to - you can rely on Kathleen for beautiful and unique arrangements. Thank you River and Eve Flora for such beautiful flowers for our wedding!
