Black & Radiant Orchid Styled shoot
At the start of this year we predicted the appearance of dramatic darks at weddings. Whilst hard to imagine that pastels could be replaced by darks and even blacks, it is quite possible and even elegant. Our vision with this Radiant Orchid styled shoot was to show how it can be done and how the Pantone colour of the year 2014 – Radiant Orchid could be incorporated. The end result was a dramatic, yet elegant feel for a wedding {see our Pinterest board here}.     Whilst it is rather challenging to have a black on black palette that... Read More

Cars birthday party {Carike Ridout}
Little manny turned two a little while ago and there was no doubting the theme… I am sure that we will have to go with the Cars birthday party theme for the next 8 years! Manny LOVED his special day and especially the red car cake topper that his daddy made for him.     I started off my planning with a Pinterest board. When I discussed my theme with friendy Liezel from Match Set Love she started creating and inspiring me with so many more ideas! We decided to go with the black and white square theme, incorporating it into the... Read More

Michael & Ranay came to South Africa to celebrate their wedding with family and friends at the beautiful Green Leaves Country Lodge and Venue in Hartbeespoort, North West.

2014 Lovilee advertiser event
We recently had the Lovilee advertiser event for banner advertisers here at the Black Olive Lounge in Jo’burg. I so wish that I would one day be able to have one for the advertisers in Cape Town, but we will have to grow quite a bit still for that. This annual event is exclusive to advertisers with banner adverts in the past 12 months and we opened up 2 seats to non advertisers this year.     Melanie Wessels kindly agreed to take some images of the event. Match Set Love designed the stationary for the day and... Read More

Superhero Party {LVstar Photography}
  This is the very first feature that we do from LVstar Photography, but certainly not the last. Photographer Lee-Ann Vigus captured this absolutely gorgeous Superhero Party for Carter’s 3rd birthday earlier this year at his parents’ house in Cape Town. I am sure that almost every little kid has a superhero inside that comes out at some time or another, and what better occasion than at his/her birthday party?     Carter’s mom, Bianca Boschoff {contact details at the bottom of the post} recently...
