MORE ABOUT ME
Where are you based and what areas do you cover?
We are based in Durban, and we work with clients all over South Africa and internationally too.
How did you get started in weddings?
We started out as Glee Projects in 2010 doing family weddings and birthday parties, and then decided to jump into this adventure together full time. Combining our passion for pretty things and design skills, over the past few years we have focused on stationery design and specialist printing for and our heart is to make things personal and meaningful to you and your loved ones.
What inspires you?
We are inspired by our family and that is the heart of who we are. We are wives and moms so we have been through it all, the weddings and parties and the beautiful chaos of everyday life. We love watching trends, but are also inspired by finding a beautiful solution to a specific design challenge. We love our country, and are constantly inspired by the people and amazing design that is uniquely South African.
Favourite place in South Africa?
We love our hometown Durban for the sun, the chilled people and the space. We also have a special love for the bush, especially the Kruger Park where we spent many childhood holidays.
What advice would you give to brides and grooms?
Use your stationery to tie your big day together with a clear theme that reflects your love story. And remember that your wedding day is the start of a much bigger adventure.
