Samantha & Grant

Samantha & Grant’s wedding is a beautiful medley of simplicity & elegance. I love how this set worked so well to bring in that pop of colour compared to a more white & light table setting. She used her stationery well to become a feature, rather than just blending. We used the Bongi Florals set, but made the flowers to display bigger than the template to create more of an impact.

Rachel & Siya Kolisi

How I love bragging about this wedding. Absolutely loved doing the designs for Springbok rugby captain, Siya Kolisi’s wedding. This was the first time I got the chance to work with Lavender Creations. And it was the beginning of a great partnership! This wedding was quite the challenge, as all the stationery had to be done in less than 2 weeks, and the guests and numbers kept changing as the rugby players can’t really rsvp too long in advance. It was a challenge, but Oh Yay loved every second of it. Who wouldn’t want to do everything they can to make sure this lovely couple, Rachel & Siya Kolisi, has the perfect day?

Melissa & Dietmar

This is one of my dear friends, Melissa. I was so thrilled when she asked me to do her stationery (and be her bridesmaid). She is a creative person herself, so it was so much fun brainstorming with her for ideas. She absolutely loves Harry Potter, so we wanted to bring in the theme without being too corny, and still have a bit of elegance. I would say we got it right?! Loved how everything turned out.

Seanne & Quintin

Oh how I how Seanne & Quintin used our floral set. It went so well with their organic look & feel of their wedding reception. Love when a bride connects with an off-the-shelf set and it helps complete the look of their wedding!

Eclectic Earth wedding

Get swept away in the earthy beauty of mother nature, in a celebration filled with geode and crystal wedding ideas. A garland of rose quartz and other geodes, accompanied by wood foraged in the forest and moss created an overall look of mystique and magic. “We focused on pastel pinks and purples to offset the bright and deep greens of the forest landscape,” says Erin, who styled the geode and crystal wedding ideas, and table decor. Naturally the whimsical forest seemed like the perfect place, mirroring these magical qualities. We selected a beautiful location in Constantia, lush and full of blooming flowers and plants, which added to the otherworldly look and feel.

Oceanside bohemian wedding

A relaxed beach wedding is probably everyone’s dream. Our team decided to celebrate the theme with a fresh bohemian twist. The location epitomised the dream of this wedding concept. Beautiful soft light, an empty beach and light breeze made the shoot truly exceptional and inspiring. Michelle du Toit (photographer) wanted to focus on capturing a very relaxed and soft atmosphere but still have our beautiful model look strong and confident. Therefore, more serious and relaxed emotions were being portrayed. Working with gorgeous, vibrant tones of aqua, green and royal blue, she tried to keep the colours fresh, and as natural as possible with the editing style. The surrounding landscape was used as a soft backdrop – to help create a more serene and tranquil mood. Oh Yay brought in geometric shapes in the stationery, keeping the colours and designs quite simple and using watercolour textures to soften the shapes. Touches of gold, wood elements and textured paper added to the bohemian beach wedding theme.
