Georgia Young “Gravity” Spring Summer 2016 Collection

by | Bridal Fashion, Bride



The classic, modern elegance of Australian bridal designer Georgia Young has come to life with her newest collection “Gravity” released for Spring Summer 2016.

Designed and handmade in Melbourne, the collection is based on the concept of the things we don’t notice, often have the greatest effect. That is certainly true of each of the designs – the beautifully cut silhouettes, simple to the eye shapes worked through so much more behind the scenes.

Each detail carefully considered, each stitch carefully sewn – the pieces coming to life via a beautifully  curated, contemporary collection.

Vendor of the Week – Funkified Entertainment

by | Blog News, Bride


Happy Monday Dotties! It is so strange to have a short week where we are this week, but it also means we’re looking forward to getting an action packed week into just four days! Sunshine planned, we hope!

If you are planning a Spring wedding for 2017, why not consider spring blossoms as part of your wedding decor. I was out today noticing all the different pinks of the blossom trees in full bloom along the sides of the road. Big containers of these would look spectacular (crab apple, plum or apple blossom, cherry blossom) – even if they are so delicate they will start to drop their petals almost as you touch them. Use things at your wedding that mean something to you, take your breath away or you have as a special memory. And search our Directory for vendors who want to help you bring your vision to life. We’re sure you’ll find the perfect vendors for your needs in Ms Polka Dot’s Directory . We have Transport, we have Hair & Beauty, we have Styling and Hire and Venues – we even have Cakes and Celebrants! Our vendors are committed to helping you achieve the wedding of your dreams.

Check out Ms Polka Dot’s Directory for wedding vendors who will love your wedding as much as you!

Sydney’s leading boutique entertainment agency Funkified Entertainment represents exclusively a number of talented musicians – from DJ’s to jazz bands, an elegant string quartet, or funky dancefloor music. Gus and his team at Funkified Entertainment ensure all your entertainment needs are covered. Have a one on one consultation and choose your entertainment, and your package will come with a qualified sound and lighting engineer, state of the art PA system, and onsite liaison manager to ensure everything runs smoothly. Tick one more item off your list – and leave your entertainment in their very capable and professional hands.

We asked Gus of Funkified Entertainment five questions in five minutes:

What is your favourite after 5 drink?

At the moment, my favourite is a Poor Toms Gin and Tonic.

Your favourite weekend getaway?

The Blue Mountains. My wife, Caitlin, is from the Mountains, so we’ve spent a lot of time there over the years. So much so that we got married on her family property in Kanimbla in 2013!

Favourite restaurant?

SixPenny in Stanmore. Exceptional food, great service and an amazing atmosphere.

What can we find you eating for breakfast on a Sunday morning?

Without fail, it will be Eggs Benedict with a Cappuccino.

Favourite wedding story?

We had the pleasure of working with Matthew and Ed on their wedding in late 2015. The guys were united by Clover Moore in a beautiful Commitment Ceremony in Sydney CBD, then danced the night away at Simmer on the Bay to a 6-piece band and DJ. Two of our favourite clients, and one of the most love-filled occasions we’ve been part of – we can only hope the current Australian marriage laws progress into the 21st Century sooner rather than later, so same-sex couples can be afforded the legal respect they deserve.

Hannah & Clinton’s Secluded Riverside Engagement

by | Australia - Western Australia, Bride, Engagements,



Hannah & Clinton

This intimate engagement shoot, with its warmth and sweetness, is the perfect antidote to winter hibernation as we edge into spring. Hannah and Clinton’s secluded riverside engagement, shot on the Swan River in Perth and captured by Anthea Auld, is sure to make you dream of waves lapping at a shore, soft breezes and warm sunlight on your face, as you share in the couple’s sweet story of their love.

Hannah remembers how they met and came to be. “We met through a mutual friend – we both have a big passion for horses, and this mutual friend introduced us down at Gloucester Park one evening. We instantly clicked, and within a few weeks we were dating and the rest is history!”






Hannah gushes about the dream proposal from Clinton, “We were traveling through Europe on a six week holiday, and were in Venice. Clinton insisted that we go on a gondola ride one evening after a lovely meal. I noticed he had been acting very odd but didn’t really think much of it! After a short while, Clint was on one knee in the gondola asking me to become his wife!”








“I had seen a similar shoot on Facebook and thought it would be perfect for us!” Hannah says of the inspiration for their engagement shoot. “I had asked Anthea about this sort of look, and she knew the perfect place to make it happen!”

Of what she and Clinton love about each other, Hannah tells, “I love that we always know how each other are feeling just by looking at each other. Whether we need to talk, help each other with something or even just need a quick hug on down days, we are always there for each other no matter what! He truly is my best friend.”

Congratulations on your engagement, Hannah and Clinton! Thank you to the lovely couple, and to Anthea Auld for sharing this stunning shoot with us.
