Vanessa and Jonathan: Wedding by Marius

We made this opulent and super stylish wedding invitation this morning for Weddings by Marius, the most innovative wedding planner in the Garden Route!

This personalized invitation is printed onto stone grey metallic paper and wrapped in an ornate semitransparent silver paper, tied with a warm grey silky ribbon.

Marius wrote the following about this unique and stunning wedding:
Venessa and Jonathan will be getting married on Bollard Bay followed by Dinner at Lush. Lush is lavish and extravagantly opulent with richly embellished interiors celebrated in ruby hues, velvet textures and dramatic objects d’arts. Mirrors, mosaics, crystal chandeliers, giant candelabra, leather studded walls, suede and vinyl finishes and fibre-optic lights create a seductive background for the exciting menu. The menu is designed to create an exquisite dining experience. Food is thoughtfully presented - an immersive theatrical experience!

Vanessa and Jonathan love texture and contrast and would like the stationery, décor and floral design for their wedding to portray some of these elements. For the décor and flowers they would like to incorporate elements from the Knysna area like driftwood and indigenous flowers. We will follow a very intuitive approach with the floral design to make it really special and unique.

Thank you Elsje.
I am so excited about my wedding and your design is exquisite. I am going to be so proud to handout my beautiful invitations in January. Marius has been fantastic and his recommendation of your designs has far exceeded my wildest thoughts on my stationary.

Thank you again
