It’s the beginning of the year and we’re all feeling hopeful. I’m always crawling at the finish line in December thinking that I just barely survived it, and then January comes along… Just saying the word makes me feel like I can do ANYTHING again. Bless January! a 2015 was one hell of a year that taught me so many lessons. It was a year of adjusting to a new city and life, overcoming a personal heartbreak, and extremely hard work.

Marike and Hannes’s small town wedding

Two very dear friends of ours got married in August this year, and my husband and I were honoured to have front row seats in the celebration. Hannes and Marike first met 9 years ago, so after being together for that long they were really excited to just get married already! They planned a beautiful wedding in just 5 months, and as guests we were all blown away by the details that just shined with character and thoughtfulness. Marike had a gorgeous bouquet made by Judy from Metliefde Blomme and she looked spectacular, like a fairytale bride that walked straight out of Pocahontas. It was perfect, everything about this day. Have a...

The very first Pink Party!

I saw a little Facebook reminder pop up in my feed this morning. One year ago today I was sitting in the Drakensberg, in my bed with a book and a pen. It’s been exactly one year since I first started planning for an idea that actually happened last week.   I had an idea for a workshop like no other. A beautiful space of inspiration, conversation and learning for creative entrepreneurs. I’ve been preparing for this workshop over many months, but it wasn’t until I guest spoke about branding at another workshop in July that I decided to just go for...

Lu-Anne and Brent’s bushvelt wedding

A lot of Gauteng brides are happy to come all the way to the Cape to look for that picture perfect winelands venue, bombarded by the stigma that it's too hard to find a beautiful ourdoorsy venue in the Gauteng area  (this included myself some years ago).
