Come see us in the main expo area from Friday 20th February to Sunday 22nd February 2015.

SDD_Valentines

Yes, we know – we are a day early! But we could not resist sharing a little (and ALOT) of love to you all and wish you a very happy Valentines Day! Thank you for your continuous support and love – we could never make all the beautiful things we do everyday without you all.

SDD_Margaret&CurshwinWe loved being a part of Margaret & Curshwin’s beautiful wedding vision. From their playful yet elegant invites to their chic on-the-day stationery, a modern fairytale theme was carried through with a hint of an adorable bunny emblem. The use of black and white colours with a dash of silver brought together a stunning collaboration.

SDD_EaringsWe have these beautiful studded earrings in stock and would love to share a little sparkle. Each pair of earrings includes a customised card (personalisation on names and date only) and is the perfect gift for only R45 ExVat each.

Contact us today to place your order, we cannot wait to hear from you!

*Please note the orders have a minimum quantities of 10.

SDD_NudeShootKeeping a neutral and natural palette opens so many design and decor opportunities.  We added a few pieces to this beautiful outdoor styled shoot with a touch of  laser cutting detail on the place card and soft yet simple printed menu with an interesting yet effective cut.

SDD_Dreamy&DramaticNo other word can describe this dreamy wedding than DRAMA – in the best way possible of course! With overflowing florals and touches of gold, Toni and Mark’s dreamy dramatic wedding was just stunning with the ever amazing Nicolette of Nicolette Weddings. We adored designing their stationery and thought our ornate mirrors and perspex table numbers were the perfect compliment.

SDD_TropicalSummer is still dazzling here in Cape Town and the thought of sipping on lemonade by the pool under the summer shade is on our minds. We loved being a part of this beautiful Tropical styled shoot in collaboration with Wedding Concepts – the bright colours and cool blue shades beamed on the neutral backdrops. It’s a versatile look for many an occasion with a touch of whimsical class.

SDD_ElopmentWe could not contain ourselves when we saw our stationery featured on  Green Wedding Shoes. This Vogue inspired “Surprise Elopement” shoot, with all South African vendors, called for modern yet classic pieces with fun elements. Our lasercut menu strip is the perfect example of this! We also made use of our stunning gold perspex and smooth skin papers.

SDD_BlackonBlackThis year we have seen multiple trends within the wedding industry adding much variety to the many weddings we have been so fortunate to be a part of. One though which we adored was the use of deep, dark and rich colours. We collaborated with Blank Canvas for this divine Black on Black styled shoot which took the dark hue and made it elegant, dreamy and purely sophisticated. We used laser cutting, stamp foiling and blind printing to create beautiful patterns, textures and dimensions.

SDD_FestiveSeason_2014We cannot believe the festive holidays are only a few weeks away! And though we are in full swing with our peak season madness, we took a few moments out of our busy day to keep the Holiday Spirit sparkle eminent in our studio. Don’t you just adore our personalised decorations! They sure made us smile and jingle all the way to the tree!
