Pause August 2021 | Introducing our Team

“We need Joy as we need air. We need Love as we need water. We need each other as we need the earth we share.”
Maya Angelou

We know it sounds corny, but there really is no I in Team. This curated experience is only possible because we have incredible suppliers and people holding our hands. The following service providers made Pause May 2021 possible, we are beyond grateful to each and every one of you.

We would also like to do a massive shoutout to Issha and the guys from Rimac Events for being the most amazeballs flower fairies one can ever ask for. We appreciate you efforts more than you would ever know!

We just love our team!

Au De Hex Estate

Au De Hex is amazing! It is seriously one of the most beautiful set ups we have ever done and it is a place where we would always be able to let our creative juices flow. Lariska + Kraanos where amazing. Nothing was too big or too small for them to tend to and we are so grateful for their exceptional service. We seriously cannot recommend them enough for your function or event. Visit them at .

TASTE Ateljee

Our students were treated with the most delicious food and drinks throughout the 3 days. Every snack and meal was presented with so much care and finesse. AND most importantly, it tasted AMAZING! Jacques and Michelle blew us away with their generous portions and this unforgettable taste adventure. Full disclosure: Both of us, after working at least 12hours a day during the workshop, picked up 2kg’s! That should tell you something about how yummy the food was! Visit them at .

Chantall Marshall

Chantall Marshall is seriously one special photographer and we were lucky enough to have her with us for 3 whole days! Her calm demeanour, happy spirit and rad photography skills really made this journey even more special ! She captured moments and emotions we will truly carry with us forever. She also made sure that each student gets portfolio shots of their creations and we just love to see how proud they are when showcasing their work on social media. Visit her at .

Mari Fouche

Mari Fouche is any creative’s dream  when shooting an editorial! Mari was actually our model for our first ever Pause August 2020 , we could not say yes quick enough when she showed interest to be part of another Pause. In front (and off) of the camera she is an absolute professional , needing no guidance at all. We would pick the gorgeous Mari for every editorial for the rest of our lives! Visit her at .
