Charis 'Krazy Chaz" Mc Keever

Creative Head designer & CEO.

We are a bespoke design studio with a passion and fire for creating beautiful papercraft and stunning wedding invitations, event stationery, custom gift, alongside our corporate identity and packaging designs.


We love the happy endings, celebrating those life-changing moments in style. From wedding announcements to the big day or joy of seeing your new business logo on those cards being handed out. We value the relationship we develop with our clients, taking them step by step through their design process, total transparency, and constant conversation. 


If you can dream it, we can create it and we are open to new &  different ideas. So book an appointment and come in for a “cuppa” and we can chat over your design needs.

 

A little about our history:

In 2012 & 2013 I was the Inland Winner of the ABIA (Africa Bridal Industry Academy) Annual Awards for top Wedding Dance Studio.

Through my successful interaction at the SA School of Weddings and my extensive design experience, I was asked to join the teaching team as their Stationery Lecturer from 2014 - 2017.

In 2019, I collaborated with Short Cut Craft in creating a number of Wedding Design Workshops - click this link to future workshops on offer.

I have been published in 4 editions of the Wedding Inspirations Magazine for 1st Dance Advice and styled shoot collaborations.

 

For the past 10 years, I have been working alongside a number of industry leaders like:

The Wedding Butterfly

Extravaganza 

Memoire Wedding & Conference Venue

ABOUT THE TEAM

 

Tania Strydom 

Head of SA Production 

Tania has been in the event and wedding industry for over 10 years and offers everything from invitations and day-of stationery to event planning services, Tania’s business has evolved into a company that specializes in ‘bespoke’, and thus the perfect person to oversee local production.

 

With meticulous attention to detail, she is able to bring luxury and beauty into gifts for the wedding couple and their guests, adding that ‘cherry on top’ to make them feel special. “A gift gives us the opportunity to express our appreciation and feelings to someone, and often this is overlooked, Eventations taps into these emotions to create an unforgettable encounter from the moment it is placed in your loved one’s hands to the moment they open it and see their personalized gift.

 

The ‘unboxing experience’  is just as important as the gift itself.”
