polka dot sneak peek Polka Dot Sneak Peek Your Venue

It’s Polka Dot Sneak Peek time! Which means it’s time to dish the dirt with me and fellow Dotties and share your wedding plans!

 

Your wedding venue sets the tone for your wedding day- a beach wedding with bures and sand under foot means one thing- destination holiday and cocktails are at hand! An urban city ballroom calls for elegance and a hidden chapel in the rainforest conjures up images of a secret garden. So tell me dear Dotties, where are you getting married? Where are you celebrating? Share the links and photos of your wedding venues!

        We think we are going to have the ceremony infront of the gazebo, but we havent decided 100% yet.There are so many places there! Its hard to decide on one. The reception is actually elsewhere as everyone will be travelling for the wedding and we needed to find a location with alot of places to stay for the weekend. The homestead only sleeps 8 and there is nothing close by. Its just for the bridal party.

          The gazebo would make a gorgeous backdrop to the ceremony! Where is your reception?

      Ooo Kerrie are you going to have photos near the blowhole?

      Are you having the ceremony and reception in the same building? I’m loving the gardens and water side outlook of your venue!

        Yes Polka Dot- at the lighthouse/ blowhole and then around some of the historic building in the area. Not to mention (weather permitting) on Black Beach- I love the contrast of the rocks/ and formal attire.

      Ah that sounds fantastic! Do your guests know about the reception venue or are you surprising them? What a palce to be when the sun goes down!

        I know – will be so pretty. Guests don’t know all the details – just that the reception will continue from the park. I love a good surprise :)

      Hi Kelly! Dunbar House is gorgeous and I just looked up Watsons Chapel and my gosh it looks stunning! I haven’t seen it before and the views over the Tasman look like it’ll make it really magical!

    We’re having our wedding in December 2013 at Milton Park in the Southern Highlands :)

    The ceremony will be held on the Tulip lawn out in the gardens in the estate. It’s beautiful because there is a secret path under a giant weeping beech tree to get to the location.

    The reception will be in the Orangerie which has a slight french provonical feel, but my theme is more etheral chic based around the beautiful peony flower :)

    I could go on for ages, I love weddings and wedding planning! xo
