“Remember this. Hold on to this. This is the only perfection there is, the perfection of helping others. This is the only thing we can do that has any lasting meaning. This is why we’re here. To make each other feel safe.”
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 November 2021 possible, we are beyond grateful to each and every one of you.
Nooitgedacht Estate is an iconic wedding venue situated in Stellenbosch. We challenged ourselves with this fast space and loved the creative journey of creating intimate and inviting spaces for our students to enjoy. Visit them at https://www.instagram.com/nooitgedachtestate/ .
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.

N Concepts & Designs
Nico and his amazeballs team always come through for us. Anything is possible with them in your corner and we are beyond grateful to have them on our team. They supplied all the furniture, rigging, lighting, cutlery, crockery, draping and tablecloths for Pause. Visit them at http://nconceptsanddesigns.co.za/home-mobile/ .
Bo & Luca
Bo & Luca is an Australian Based Bridal House with a design house here in Cape Town as well! Their dresses scream romance and other-wordly-whimsy (that’s a term right?!). This exquisite dress felt like it was especially designed for Kaylar (our model), fitted to the T and making everyone swoon everytime the beautiful bodice caught the light. This dress was the perfect backdrop to give our students the most beautiful stage for their bridal bouquets. Visit her at https://www.instagram.com/boandluca/ .
Iza Cloete Make Up Artist is not only a super talented make up artist but she is also Anli’s sister! Iza is such a bubbly energetic human and she knew exactly what mood we wanted to created for the bride model. We could not stop staring at Kayler’s beautiful features, highlighted by Iza’s expert hand! Visit her at https://izacloete.co.za .
Kay Lamberts is any creative’s dream when shooting an editorial! Her beautifully regal appearance made us hold our breath for what felt like the entire editorial. We were mesmerised by her majesty, pinching ourselves to remind us that she did not JUST fly in from her royal palace to be our bride for a few hours! In front (and off) of the camera she is an absolute professional , needing no guidance at all. We would pick the gorgeous Kay for every editorial for the rest of our lives!
