Happy Monday! Did you have a lovely weekend? Happy November too, now that we’re 5 days in I’m trying to figure out exactly where I’m at! Are you preparing for the end of year celebrations?
I’m always excited to get up on Monday’s and launch into our week by introducing you to one of our fantastic members of Ms Polka Dot’s Directory. You see, not only do our advertisers help us bring you fresh content every day, but they’re also working their tails off to help couples have the most fabulous of weddings. They’re not run of the mill, every day people. They’re incredible and they love what they do.
Please visit Ms Polka Dot’s Directory and check out our members, and if you love your own wedding vendors, do send them our way as we’d love to make the pages of our directory even more full of vendors who have the polka dot sparkle.
I love food, as in if you ask me my favourite way to spend a weekend it always involves an incredible meal. I remember incredible meals and I certainly remember the weddings with incredible meals. So I’m delighted to introduce you to Sydney wedding & event caterer Laissez-Faire Catering who can make your wedding one to remember with incredible culinary delights! (Plus they have a portfolio of incredible venues they work with, so it’s a win win).
We asked Ian-Michael from Laissez-Faire Catering five questions in five minutes –
What is your favourite after five drink?
Mojitos or Pimms cocktail
Your favourite weekend getaway?
Drive down south – I love Milton near Ulladulla, go to one of the local Bed and Breakfast(s), buy fresh produce from a local farmers markets, light the fireplace, cook a large meal with a glass of wine or two, and finish either with a hot chocolate or whisky depending on the season.
Right now, the most romantic spot is el solito posto in Melbourne – and for Lebanese and amazing value – Al-Aseel in Sydney.
What can we find you eating for breakfast on a Sunday morning?
Acai and muesli to start – a piccolo café and then a sourdough toast with poached eggs avocado and roasted tomato.
Your favourite wedding story?
One of my favourite wedding stories is that of my parents; they met in a bar in Australia but had already planned & booked to travel separately & indefinitely. After spending only two weeks together, my mum boarded her flight & said goodbye to my dad. It took him 7 days without her to realise she was the one – he booked a flight to the Greek Island of Crete where he knew she was travelling, met her, married her the next day & 30 years later, they are still together.
