I love wedding venues that have a sense of individuality to them and this gorgeous Brisbane venue is just the ticket for today. Spring Food & Wine, located in Brisbane’s CBD has a huge emphasis on good food (which to me is awesome because good food can really blow guests away at a wedding!) The
Michele and Eric At the suggestion of our photographer, Natalija Brunovs of i heart weddings, our engagement session took place at Fringe World, Perth’s incarnation of the Fringe Festival.

How the Mexican stars have aligned! We’ve had a
I just love a Groom that exudes an individual style at his wedding, and at Katie & Namha’s Eco Inspired Sanctuary Cove Wedding, this was certainly the case! Namha wore a fantastic tweed suit from Godwin Charli, with the highlight being his shoes (oh, the shoes!) from Church’s of London. Grooms take note – don’t be afraid
The London Club, Teneriffe, is the perfect location to grab a stool, overlook the Brisbane river, and people watch the afternoon away. Alternatively, head inside to get comfy in the library and order one of their recommended concoctions – the Bohemian Mojito. The London Club receives the big tick of approval when it comes to this
It’s funny, isn’t it, what draws me into debate and discussion. Today’s Polka Dot Hot Spot is all about guest transport! When it comes to weddings, there are often a lot of guests flying in. Not only that but ceremony and reception locations are often a fair way away from each other. So my hot
Lydia and Steve A beautiful garden wedding with beautiful soft colours like Lydia and Steve’s always leads me to dreamy classic wedding musings.

Mia & Eben Our wedding was rustic, vintage, and showed off the rugged mountain scape of Wanaka, Central Otago. We held our Wanaka wedding outdoors, and decorated it with our family heirlooms.

These beautiful words from come Groom Piero, who looked very dapper in his bow tie and well-cut suit at his Vintage Country Wedding in Canberra. “My most memorable moment is when we pulled each other aside from the rest of the guests, looked around and let it all sink in that we’re married, we love each
JP & Sarah It seems that Australia is loving anything Mexican as much as I do and quite frankly, I am happy to get on board with that! What could be more festive than such a celebration?

Today’s brides are seeking inspiration from all sources and walks of life – farmyards, vintage eras, Twilight – and more recently, interior and home design.

Following on from the gorgeous wedding of Ashleigh and Kristian, this afternoon we have a treat- their wedding film! Captured by The White Tree the film tells their love story with all the movement and motion to bring a tear to your eye.
Ashleigh & Kristian I do love a wedding that is beautiful in it’s simplicity, beautiful in its elegance and beautiful in the story that it tells.
