Behind the scenes on the Pasella shoot

Elsje Designs, Aleit and Okasie were featured together on the afrikaans lifestyle TV programme last week. Here's a few behind the scenes pics to show you how much fun we had!

For the farm table, we created brown paper bags with the Afrikaans saying "trou is nie perdekoop nie". Linnett's mom made these beautiful crochet buttonniere's that added an instant festive appeal to the concept. For the shoot, we've put vegetable seeds into the packet with the growing instructions printed at the back - this is a nice keepsake for your guests and a reminder of your love that continues to grow.
We had the artwork of the table number and festive words lasercut from clear perspex and hung that above the table. The transparency of this piece, added a modern and simplistic twist to the table.

Elsje in action - styling (what she loves most). The guest names which was printed onto clear film tags were tied to the knob of the bell jar, adding to the see-through feel of the table. With the clear perspex table number contained inside the bell jar, it created a understated focal point on the centre of the table.

Aleit and Minki admiring the colourful farm table, created by Okasie. Its always a treat to work with Chris and Dané from Okasie - these guys must be the most creative team in the industry!

Vanessa posing on the white couch, looking like a lady of leisure! We were very proud of her, well done V!! You looked glamorous and stylish - it seemed as if you might have luck as a TV presenter!

Vanessa basking in the lime light (again)! Well done Inecke for taking this shot - it's my favourite!

Vanessa, Minki and Elsje. Minki must be the most beautiful TV presenter - inside and out. Everyone adored her, she is warm, funny and a joy to work with.
Officially we would like to thank Inecke de Kock ( for the lovely pics. Okasie for the flowers and decor and for Aleit, for giving us this opportunity to work with him.
