Warm Plum & Botanical Charm - George & Janah

Janah was the most lovely of clients! Even though we never met in person, we were SO excited to see photos of her wedding day. As you’ll see she has impeccable taste! This is the invitation we made for their special day.

Their wedding day was full of charm; warm & classy but still fun. Marelie their photographer does really creative work, & her style complemented the couples style so well.

We also loved seeing how well the stationery she chose worked in with the overall feel of the day; botanical inspiration & a thread of gorgeous rich plum colours. Okasie did an outstanding job with the flowers, as usual.

More of this wedding on Marlie’s website , & on The Pretty Blog - feast your eyes!

Swan Love - The Shades in Between

I am a grey-junkie; almost all of the walls inside our apartment are painted grey, I have a multitude of grey throws and blankets and my default throw-on outfit is usually grey. I just love it!

I love it because when you subtract colour, suddenly the other design elements matter so much more. Space, texture, line and contrast comes to life in a way that makes my toes curl. Hope these images make you love it just as much.

Ronel & Jaco’s City Wedding

Two of my favourite people in the world are getting married this weekend and I am beyond excited! It will be one big city adventure filled with besties, yummy food (at Savoy Cabbage! ), great music and loud partying, for sure.

Dirk (my wonderful Mr.) has been preparing his best man speech, we have done loads of planning, playlist making and tonight some of the last stationery bits will be finished up. Oh gosh, I am wishing the week away so we can get to the celebrations already!

Ronel & Jaco gave me free reign over the stationery - wow. I loved creating an invitation for a wedding so different to most of the weddings we do. Since the day plays off in the Cape Town city bowl we wanted it to be modern (Jaco is an architect; clean lines was a must) but still warm to capture that Savoy Cabbage atmosphere. I will try post images on Instagram, so follow us there on Saturday!

David & Sarah - Destination SA

From their first email we were excited to work on pretties for this faraway couple. Based in the UK & planning a classy destination wedding on our sunny shores, there were rumours of origami & bursts of colour. We were hooked.

When they popped into the studio a few days before their wedding they were so relaxed & sunkissed; fresh off the beach & totally into each other. This was going to be one awesome wedding day!

We’re delighted to be able to show you some work by the lovely Tasha Seccombe whose images tells the story of this day so beautifully.

You just have to look through the rest of Tasha’s photographs from this wedding - it was a party! Look out for cufflinks, confetti, Jimmy Choos & dance moves.

Colour Lover - Embracing Autumn

Don’t be sad Mother City, as the summer slinks away.
These swans don’t mind the odd rainy day, overcast with a little drizzle. Snuggling weather, soup weather, make yourself a quilt in these colours weather…

So make some soup, rent some series & embrace the season of change.
