Elite Wedding Décor & Styling - Participant 2015
The Garniche team is led by co-founders and life-long friends, Natja and Clarise. Both born and raised in Pretoria, their childhood was spent in and out of each other’s homes, creating a solid foundation for a firm friendship.
Natja is an energetic, dynamic, self-starter and one of the most passionate people you’ll ever meet. Natja’s career started at Aleit, where she gained valuable experience in the event and bridal industry. She’s a master at conceptualising new ideas, organising and coordinating events, with her ambition, drive and great people-skills ensuring that Garniche always delivers beyond expectations.
Clarise is an inspired dreamer, design devotee and fanatical foodie, with a brain for business. After obtaining a degree in BSc Actuarial Science, Clarise pursued a career in the corporate industry, soon realising that she also wanted to focus on the creative within. In 2013, Clarise partnered with Natja to form Garniche Studio. Her knack for finding beautiful and functional décor pieces and keeping up with stylish international trends allow her to create and conceptualise projects that are unique and unforgettable.
