The second Polka Dot Gift Guide is for the males in your life- your fiance, boyfriend, husband, brother, father, grandfather, best friend.. All the gifts I have found are available from Australian retailers and again there’s a range of budgets in mind (although admittedly a slight James Bond influence!).
What are the males in your life receiving for Christmas?

This gorgeous welcome to Summer shoot, comes to us as a collaboration between Silk Truffle Photography – Jessica Ruisan and Elaine of Butterfly Philosophy Design. I love the use of colour at weddings and this shoot combined beautiful displays of pastel hues without turning into a rainbow. Instead it’s beautifully Spring or Summer and in the garden setting provides such lovely inspiration for a warmer weather wedding.
Photographer Jess explains. “The concept was a joint collaboration organised by myself and Elaine from Butterfly Philosophy Design. Together we collaborated with a talented team on a bridal shoot that used loads of colours including pastels in peaches/pinks/creams with big pops of coral, fuchsia, yellow and oranges. The girls sat alongside the sweet treat area, which included a gorgeous cake, macarons, cupcakes and cake pops to snack on while chatting, having a laugh and a great time. Our shoot aesthetic was slightly vintage, free spirited and most of all fun as you can see as the girls playing with hula-hoops and their croquet sets. Who says you can’t play games on your wedding day? ”
Jessica remarks, “Joy is such an overwhelming, powerful and wonderful emotion and we really wanted to create a shoot that brought that feeling to life. If you could see, taste, and touch joy, what would it be like? Colourful florals were a must, as well as balloons, amazing sweet treats and other fun-filled elements! ”
