Wedding Feature: Jeanine and Luis

The most fulfilling part of my job is seeing our finished stationery pieces in action. All the love and attention that we pour into our designs; each fold and every cut is done with care to produce our pieces. These elements, added together with the handiwork of other vendors and months of planning by coordinators, brides, grooms, friends and families, result in the final product – the ‘big day’. This is the day that all the hard work and sleepless nights pay off. I love to see our designs side by side with the venue, the flowers, the dress and the ambience.


Jeanine and Luis had beautifully simple, yet elegantly luxurious stationery pieces. The brief was simple: clean, classical with stark white and navy. This matched their venue to the T. It was held at the palatial Val de Vie Polo Estate which is nestled against the dramatic back drop of the Paarl/Franschhoek Valley. You can see the full event on the  Mooi Troues blog, there is even a highlight video, but keep the tissues handy as it is an emotional one. The day was captured by Ryan Graham Photography.


Jeanine and Luis’ suite consisted of a digital save the date, followed by letter pressed invitations foiled in gunmetal on luxury 600 gsm cardstock and finished off with a navy wax seal.

The rest of the stationery continued with this theme; order of service booklets, menus, silver perspex table names, place cards, dance floor vinyl, ceremony backdrop and various signage.
