Polka Dot Hot Spot! The subjects I shy away from, the subjects I’d rather hide from, come out in their glory for a decent discussion!
This month’s hot spot is all about ceremony and reception guest lists – in a way it’s a bit like an A list or B list! Are you inviting some guests to the ceremony only and not the reception? What do you think of the idea? How would you execute it? And lastly, do you think it’s rude, or just plain sensible?
The final installment in our Vogue Wedding series behind the scenesof Flavia Kelson and Ricardo Pintato’s Wedding (See part one here, part two, part three or part four) is of course the best one- the wedding!
I am a big fan of posing behind oversized lips, glasses and moustaches all in the name of creating some memorable pictures of family and friends on the big day or for any celebratory event really. There is something about photo booths that encourages us to embrace our inner child, goddess or superstar and capture these personalities in a series of spontaneous snapshots. I found my dream photo booth experience at a Sunshine Coast Wedding Fair run by A Darling Affair who help couples source all things alternative, vintage, designer and handmade for your wedding by bringing together fresh, creative wedding professionals and suppliers. One of the vendors showcased at The Chapel Woombye in August this year, was fine art photographers + wedding photo booths operators, KISSstudio. They had a complimentary funky booth on site, filled with a huge range of props.
After unlimited amounts of silliness posing with my friend and fellow bride-to-be, our prints were dispensed instantly for us to keep. KISSstudio can also make your pictures available for your guests on USB or online. These snaps from the Wedding Fair were posted on KISSstudio’s Facebook page for users to tag themselves. FUN!

Pippa says: I am passionate about dance, teaching, travel and DIY projects. Blessed to be marrying the love of my life, Beau. Our wedding journey is exciting and providing many opportunities to share special experiences with others.
Having planned all the major details of the wedding such as venue, church, photographer and florist, it never crossed my mind to hire a videographer. Until one morning, my maid of honour sent me a link to One Day in Mind‘s website and two hours later I had watched every film (long and short) they had produced, cried, laughed, smiled and oohed. I knew I didn’t have to look any further, we had found our final piece of the wedding puzzle.
Maria and Al, the husband and wife duo of this wonderful company came to our house one afternoon and we were immediately relaxed and impressed with what they were offering us for our wedding day. They spoke about their love of, well basically love, and their absolute desire to not only create wedding films, but to truly capture your story as a couple.
On the wedding day they were there from the very beginning filming every little moment unobtrusively and the magic they produced absolutely reflects how truly beautiful our wedding day was.
From the first email, to the final wave goodbye on the evening, we have nothing but praise for One Day in Mind and we are so in love with our final film. This is something we will treasure for the rest of our lives together.
Ms Gingham says: What a divine video! Thankyou so much for sharing it with us Megan!
Megan says: “I am a 24 year old high school teacher in Brisbane. Married in April to a man that makes me laugh every single day.”
