SIGNATURE STYLE

OUR SENSE OF STYLE SUITS EVERYONE! WHETHER YOU ARE A CELEBRITY OR NOT, YOU WILL HAVE THE SAME STYLE EXPERIENCE WITH US!

Stephen’s amazing sense of style and design has created some of the most exquisite and beautiful environments ever. We at Stephen Francis Atelier apply our five-senses approach from concept through to completion. This is to ensure that everything you touch, taste, smell, see and hear contributes to an experience that is tastefully executed with the right amount of sophistication and the right amount of wrong. For us everything matters. Stephen’s clients say it better than we ever could—see for yourself.

FLORAL COUTURE

WE DARE TO BE CREATIVE, CHEEKY AND FUN AT THE SAME TIME.

For Floral & Décor clients Stephen Francis Atelier offers design services that create the overall look and feel of your event. Our involvement is limited to these services; leaving the full coordination and planning we normally provide under the Stephen Francis Atelier banner, to you, or other partners. Let us design the setting, complete with table top, floral and lighting for your event.

INVITATIONS & STATIONERY

OUR MOTTO IS SIMPLE, DESIGN WITH STYLE

At Stephen Francis Atelier we offer beautifully designed, beautifully executed couture wedding and social stationery.

Our business is based on a bespoke approach to suit each and every one of our clients’ individual needs. Mix that with fun, creativity, responsive project management and the result, we are proud to say, is gorgeous, ageless stationery that appeals to the most style conscious.

Good design and typesetting is where we start, but it’s the combination of exquisite printing techniques and carefully considered paper stock that really makes the difference. When you get this right you can create something special.

Are you & your fiancée ready to discuss how #sfatelier can make your big day, a joyful journey of celebration.

SFAtelier STYLE SESSIONS

Stephen Francis Atelier are known for their unique and creative approach to wedding day styling.

While we currently offer a full styling service, this Style Session is designed for those on a more modest budget and who have time to manage the creation of the styling aspects themselves. This session therefore focusses on a Q&A to pinpoint the couples style and vision. From this SFAtelier devise a series of mood boards to bring their wedding theme and scheme to life. Supporting this, SFAtelier then open up their black book on how to create the look – from suppliers to book, to hire companies to contact, to places to source all the particulars from. We then hand over to the couple to bring all of the inspiration and insights to life.

Price R 12000.

BEHIND THE SCENES

A look at what we get up to during a wedding day.
(Well, maybe not everything…we had to cut out most
of the silliness and some of the drama…)

We're not sure we have enough positive adjectives at our disposal to do justice to Stephen's sheer brilliance in planning our wedding. SF Atelier not only created a day that was exactly what we were looking for, they also made it more wondrous than we could ever have imagined. They let us focus on the love and the joy while they made the magic happen. I still get teary just thinking about our perfect day. Thank you so much for working so hard for us. Stephen we love you!
