SDD_Janine&JohannWe were overjoyed to sponsor the Val de Vie indulgent villa and dinner experience won by the beautiful couple Janine and Johann Bensch.  With other industry experts, the couple and their guests were treated to a beautiful pampered and catered for afternoon and evening; nothing short of the familiar Val de Vie style. Our stationery designs took a modern yet chic approach with black laser cut and engraved pieces combined with beautiful yellow geometric prints.

You can find more photos and sponsor details from this event (which were beautifully captured by Inecke Photography) here as well as in latest edition of the Val de Vie Magazine.

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.

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.
