Okay, I admit it, Christmas cheer and festive season giddiness is finally starting to kick it. It may even be overriding the panic I feel with getting everything done! How about you? Are wedding plans shelved until 2015 or are you trying to get everything done before all of those public holidays?

A week of merriment, wedding merriment lies ahead so as we do every Monday morning, I’m kicking us off with showcasing the members of Ms Polka Dot’s Directory!

We have so many different kinds of vendors in our directory with so many different styles but one thing remains constant. We think they’re all awesome! They’re the kind of people you can imagine pulling up a chair and having a friendly chat with. Here at Polka Dot Bride, we’re firm believers in booking vendors who you can trust, who “get” you and who you can have a laugh with- you’re spending so much time with your vendors, why not pick amazing ones?

We have Celebrants, we have Venues, we have Bridal Gowns, we even have Photobooth Hire! We work really hard to get vendors on board who are lovely – the kind who get excited about your plans and share a glass of champagne with you while discussing them!

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

Sydney Wedding Cakes Vendor of the Week The Dainty Baker

With wedding cake officially the best kind of cake, I am delighted to introduce you to our vendor of the week The Dainty Baker! Based in Sydney, The Dainty Baker creates wedding cakes, cupcakes, couture cakes and dessert tables to suit your wedding (or any other celebration for that matter!). With flavours like Midsummers Nights Dream (raspberries and white chocolate anyone?) hokey pokey (chocolate cake with crunchy honeycomb!) and Lovely Lychee (vanilla cake with lychee filling) as well as classic favourites I’m pretty sure this cake tasting might be the highlight of your wedding planning!

We asked Rhonda of The Dainty Baker five questions in five minutes –

What is your favourite after five drink?

Caipirinha with crushed brown sugar.

Your favourite weekend getaway?

Anna Bay.

Favourite restaurant?

There’s too many!! Although if I had to I’d narrow it down to Sails @ Lavender Bay.

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

Depends on the night before… But either honey granola clusters with Greek yoghurt and fresh berries or baked eggs in tomato sauce with chorizo.

Your favourite wedding story?

My favourite wedding story happened at a wedding I went to recently. A few nights before the wedding we were speaking girly talk with the bride, questions and comments like.. Are you nervous? And … Not long to go now! After much chitter chatter we found out that the bride was planning a surprise for her groom during her speech but she wouldn’t let slip what it was!
The big day came and as us few girls waited in anticipation for the surprise, the bride very sweetly dedicated a special song to her groom. She nervously and sweetly sang “The Wedding Song” by Angus and Julia Stone. It was the loveliest thing to witness as tears welled up in the Groom’s eyes and you could just feel the love and happiness emanating from them. This couple has been each other’s sweet hearts since high school and have waited 8 years to tie the knot! Really made my heart melt!

Jemma & Tom

I think I fell in love with Jemma & Tom’s engagement shoot because it is just so darn happy. In every shot these two lovebirds are making each other laugh and there is nothing better than to love and to laugh is there? Not small giggle but big belly aching, nose scrunching laughs that make your mouth open wide and your eyes squint shut. Lara and Susie were there to capture every cackle! The couple chose the beach for their relaxed engagement shoot to honour Tom’s love of surfing and their mutual love of the water!

They tell the story of how they met. “Tom and Jemma initially met in high school as Tom’s sister was in the same grade as Jemma. Tom had a crush on Jemma but thought she was way out of his league. 10 years on Tom was out with his sister and randomly ran into Jemma and with a little bit of persistence from Tom love blossomed.”

On what they love about one another, Jemma and Tom tell, “They love the fact that their relationship is never hard. They love to spend time together and they have a strong friendship that continues to grow day by day.”

Tom chose New Years Eve to propose, remembering, “On a very cyclonic New Year’s Eve night on a remote Indonesian island, Tom asked Jemma to marry him in the pouring (horizontal) rain. Jemma was so excited that she forgot to say yes leaving Tom in a state of panic. When she finally took a deep breath and stopped jumping up and down she said yes.”

Of their photographers, Jemma and Tom note, “They both believe that a good photo tells a story and captures a moment. They have a strong connection with the beach and felt that this would be the best place to capture”them”. Lara and Susie did just that and allowed them to be themselves and feel comfortable just being who they are. They really loved their candid shots rather then the more traditional posed photo shoot.”
