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.

Karoo wedding, here we come!

With so much excitement I can share our good friends, Eugenie-Lien and Piet’s wedding invitations!

Dirk and I are jumping in the car REAL early tomorrow morning for a road trip to Williston in the Karoo (where Piet grew up and his dad still own farms) for the wedding celebrations and jubilations - cannot wait!

Have a look at these lovely photos Maree from Natural Light Photography sent over.

My brother and his beautiful wife

My brother and I, are kinda tight. Being just 2 siblings, and born only 17 months apart, we don’t know this world without each other. So yes, special days like this, it gets us all emotional!

The beautiful bride, Marike has been part of our family for.ever. They met in 1998 when they were both in St 8, loved each other but allowed the world to take them on their separate paths, until those paths led back to each other (corny, I know… but true!). You can just imagine the amount of happiness, joy and love this day was wrapped in!

Friends and family traveled to Vleesbaai (where Marike’s family spent their summer holidays growing-up) on Thursday and Friday to spend the weekend in one of the most beautiful places in the Cape. Saturday was absolutely breathless with not a hint of wind, a warm ocean and plenty excitement.

A big reception tent was pitched on Die Bult, the exact spot the family pitch their summer holiday tents.

The evening, still windless, with an almost full moon rising over the ocean was beyond special. We danced until the early hours of the morning, laughed and soaked up the joy.

Wishing you only the bestest best things, dear Brother and Marike. xx

Thank you Modern Hearts for capturing this day with so much love and care. Hop on over to their blog for more!
