SDD_Cisca&DustinCisca and Dustin came to us with a paper-state-of-mind. Their neutral wedding was a stationers dream and there was an explosion of glorious paper in all areas of their Molenvliet wedding. The highlight feature was a 3m x 3m wall covered in laser-cut white paper flowers with black pops to add interest. The enormity of this unique piece took our production team on-site to assemble. Adding to the paper theme, over 150 origami birds were hand-made to add to the essence. Tissue pockets, wooden signage, honey jar labels, pin-wheels . . . the list is beautifully endless!

*The Honey Jar covers were beautifully designed by Elephant Shoe.

We will never turn down a creative challenge . . . or stationery completely out of the ordinary! So when Celeste Styled Events contacted us to contribute “out-of-the-box” pieces, we couldn’t say yes quick enough. The task was to create 2 looks for an Urban Romance photo shoot with copper and denim trending themes to blend with the modern look.  Here’s showcasing the Urban Industrial Copper theme in Part #1 of this 2 part post.

SDD_WeddingInspirationsWe are thrilled to be featured in the Autumn issue of the Wedding Inspirations magazine. Our extensively traveled couple, Kristoffer and Ida, took their wedding all the way to Norway. Their invitations resembled a boarding pass, while their menus came in the shape of a passport. Kristoffer & Ida wanted to ensure the names of countries they’d visited together were incorporated into all of the stationery and decor – using their wedding as a journey with our guests as fellow passengers.

You can read more about this Norway wedding in the current issue which is currently available.

SDD_BeachWedding-03We could not help smiling at the sweetness of these gorgeous photos (Photography by Zara-Zoo) of our stationery for our clients Laureth & Wayne. Sophisticated beach details were incorporated in so many of the thoughtful items from vinyl & wood signage, laser-cut cake topper (isn’t it just too cute!), to thank you tags and personalised gift boxes.

Congratulations Laureth & Wayne!

SDD_ChristineMShootThere is nothing greater than supporting our fellow wedding vendors so we were more than delighted to contribute stationery items to Christine Meintjes February Photography Workshop.

You can see more of the stunning workshop photos and find more information here.

This past weekend was one to remember! The Secret Diary team pulled off an impeccable event, only this time they managed to surprise me personally with a “Secret” baby shower! With a nautical theme and all dressed to the nines in stripes and sailor hats, it was an unforgettable afternoon with all my nearest and dearest. It made a very pregnant mom to be’s heart swell with love and appreciation.

I would like to say a HUGE thank you to a few very special people in my life: To our amazing studio manager Vinette and our awesome Secret Diary team for the insane amount of work they put into this awe inspiring event and all the beautiful stationery they created. As well as my super Mom for all her hard work with the catering and drinks as well as general input for the whole event. Then to Nico Laubser from N Styling and Events for the beautiful furniture he so graciously loaned us for the day, as well as the lovely flowers he arranged for the tables. Nico, your talents with flowers and decor always supersede all my expectations! And last but not least,to precious Maggie from Edible Art for my amazing nautical themed cake which was both a work of art and delicious down to the last bite! To all of you THANK YOU a million times over! It was an unforgettable day I wont soon forget!
