Meet the happy couple

Annemie and Mitch are finally getting married is Stellenbosch on the 17th of January! They are planning their ceremony in the University Art Gallery, which was a church way back in the 1920s, but is currently used for student art exhibitions. Their reception will be held at Rosé Restaurant, which has a “platteland” feel with lots of textures – raw bricks, wood, ceramics, glass, and fabric. The look will be very botanical and bohemian with layers of found objects, vintage books, plants – all grouped together cleverly by the many fabulous stylists currently working on the project:

Alwyn from Okasie is the creative aesthetic behind many of our favourite ideas for the wedding so far – thank you Alwyn!! – and will be bringing the all important floral element to our big day.

With Elsje as part of the creative team, we can be sure that there will be nothing ordinary about this celebration! Her continuous stream of fresh ideas is such an inspiration – from hand-stitched Save the Dates to canvas printed menus to calligraphy and origami, she is bringing the layered look to the entire wedding with paper art to die for!!

Annemie’s mom is a sourceress of anything unique and out-of-the-ordinary to make the décor on the day really interesting. She has also taken on the giant task of hand-making napkins and table cloths and of course provides invaluable emotional support to the bride-to-be!!

We look forward to sharing more of the thoughts and processes on the way to the wedding to everyone!
