Tully & Cihan

A wedding full of warmth, family and genuine, palpable love is a wedding that stays with us forever, and that is exactly what we adore at Polka Dot Bride. So you can imagine how in love we are with Tully and Cihan’s intimate dusk wedding. The couple knew that the day would go by so fast, and wanted to ensure they extracted as much meaning as they possibly could from each moment, and to capture those moments they chose Andy from All Grown Up Weddings.

Of how she and Cihan came to be, Tully remembers, “We had our first date at Panama Dining Room in Fitzroy. We were both rather nervous and quite formal which is fitting with the old world atmosphere of Panama. Gradually we loosened up a bit more and then both became intrigued with one another. Our second date though, was when the magic became apparent. We met for breakfast at The Red Door Corner Store, and something about having a date during the day felt fresh, more natural and revealing. It was one of those golden, crisp, autumn days, which are enchanting all by themselves. We ate a slow breakfast and we were much more ourselves, more relaxed and very, very drawn to one another. From that moment, I felt like I was pulled into a really wonderful dream. I was smitten!

The groom and his groomsmen wore slim-fitting, black wool suits from Jack London. The bride tells, “Cihan was intrigued by the Jack London brand after I had described that 1950’s, Mad Men cut of some of their suits. After trying on his suit he loved the slim yet comfortable fit. Again we wanted something simple with that clean elegance.”

Cihan accessorised with a black, velvet bowtie gifted to him from his bride, and a bright blue pocket square. “The pocket square was a surprise,” explains Tully. “I had previously given him an ivory and black pocket square, but he thought I had asked him to wear the blue one, so we ended up with an unexpected “something blue”, only on the wrong person!”

Of her stunning gown, Tully tells, “I wore a Sottero and Midgley gown. It was strapless with a sweetheart neckline, and a gorgeous fitted bodice which gently flared out just below the hip into a beautiful train. The gown was made from an ivory Chantilly lace with a champagne fabric beneath. I wanted something simple, classic and if possible with vintage flair. I’m a lover of a clean aesthetic, so really liked that there wasn’t anything too fussy about the gown. I felt it drew its glamour from the corseted waist, providing that hourglass silhouette, and from the abundance of lace with the subtle drama of the train. The experience of shopping for the gown was like a frothy, delicate, lacy, feminine wonderland. I bought my dress from Raffaele Cuica, and stepping into the store and seeing the rows and rows of dresses with heavenly fabrics spilling out all over was so exciting. Throughout the experience I felt brimming with happiness with an undercurrent of vibrating, nervous excitement.” The bride and bridesmaids’ hair was done by Kristie from Rock Paper Scissors Hair Design, and their makeup created by Ellen Mary. Tully’s bridesmaids wore boatneck gowns in black by Young Designers Gallery.

The Farm Vigano was the couple’s choice of venue for their day. “It ended up being the perfect place for our wedding,” says the bride. “Suzie Cammareri was our coordinator, and we were impressed by her attention to detail, professionalism and warmth. She was experienced, knew what worked and what didn’t in terms of the venue, and gave us sound advice. On the day, we were so grateful to all of the staff who were attentive, bubbly and polished. Farm Vigano is this unexpected gem, a heritage building set amid beautiful gardens, a sweet little orchard and a rolling expanse of bushland.”

On the day, the bride and her bridal party experienced a massive delay on their way to the wedding which resulted in them not arriving at the ceremony until just before dusk. Tully remembers, “It must have been serendipity, as we ended up with a moody and romantic dusk ceremony. For Cihan, he felt one of his most special memories was during the ceremony, and the emotions he felt as he saw first the bridesmaids walk out and then the crescendo of his bride walking down the aisle to “Stand By Me” by Ben E. King.”

“We wanted our ceremony to be honest, heartfelt and true to us. We tried to avoid anything too long and formal, but at the same time wanted to mark the significance of the event in our own way. We especially wanted to take the opportunity to honour our families, for the incredible amount of love and support they have given to us. Our celebrant Yvonne Wood went to incredible lengths to prepare and guide us through the ceremony, and she was so respectful and nurturing. We both wanted our families to be a big part of the ceremony to help us demonstrate their significance to us. My dad gave me away and our mothers “warmed” our rings each one holding a ring which they then gave to us during the ceremony. My younger brother was one of the groomsmen, and Cihan’s brother and my Nunna were our witnesses.”

Choosing a photographer for your day is not an easy decision, but Tully and Cihan were both so happy to have booked Andrew Hardy through All Grown Up Weddings to capture their wedding. “Working with him was just lovely! Andy was such a light, gentle and friendly soul, and he worked in a way that was not at all intrusive. We felt very at ease with him, and are over the moon with the raw emotions and spontaneous, natural moments he captured.”

The couple wanted their wedding to be relaxed and for their guests (and themselves) to have thoroughly enjoy the day, and not have to worry about travelling between venues, so they chose to have both the ceremony and reception at Farm Vigano. The bride gushes, “We are so pleased that we made that decision! We were seeking a sense of vibrancy, of intimacy and warmth, of magic. We wanted people to feast, indulge and to be surrounded by beauty and love. The venue has a lovely charm both inside and out. Outside there was that fresh, crisp, country air – people could escape and take a stroll through the orchard. Inside held all the fun, and had a well designed layout that created a merry, cosy environment.”

Tully tells, “I put together the place cards which also served as a bomboniere. I found cream cards with a small heart cutout, and looped black ribbon through them to tie on a vintage style key, then hand-wrote each guest’s names on these. For our seating chart, I used an old, gold-framed mirror and wrote guest names on the glass with a glass pen.”

Of their terrific first dance, the couple remember, “It was spontaneous, unplanned and so wonderful for being so! We made our entrance to live Turkish music (a band that consists of family friends), and after a short time dancing together, were surrounded by our families and friends in this chaotic, happy jumble of hugs, laughter, and movement!”

Of what they remember and cherish most about their day, Tully gushes, “The people! Our loved ones together in one beautiful place. Witnessing the meshing of cultures, and marrying each other! Beauty in all of its elements – the emotions, the florals, the heritage building, the beautiful autumn day. That things just felt so natural and so right, and feeling everyone’s genuine joy and delight for us. It felt like hyperreality, like a perfect, delicious dream, a merry-go-round where I can recall flashes of conversation, trails of music, so much laughter and happiness, and effervescent love….”

Jess & Aiden’s Modern Lindenderry At Red Hill Wedding

Modern Lindenderry At Red Hill Wedding - Polka Dot Bride

Jess & Aidan

I love the modern glamour to Jess and Aidan’s modern Lindenderry at Red Hill wedding. Making the most of the beautiful winery setting, the couple wed amongst the vineyards before celebrating all night long at an all in one venue allowing guests to really enjoy the day  and truly relax! They worked with Shelley Price to capture their memories.

Jess and Aidan met while they were both exploring Europe, the bride remembering, “We were both working in London at the time. Aiden was managing a gym and I was a member there. As we were both Australian, we got along straight away and always had something to talk about. After a few months, I decided that I’d ask him out for a drink to which he said yes. Our time in London saw us travel around Europe together and visit places like Greece, Malta and France. As our visas started to expire, I was given the option to stay in London. It was Aiden or London and I’m glad to say that Aiden won in the end.”

Jess chose a strapless gown with beaded bodice from Rachel Gilbert , noting, “Choosing a dress was a very frustrating process as I’m a very indecisive person. Everything I tried on I loved but I never got that overwhelming feeling of knowing that I had found ‘the one’. With my close friends and family living interstate, I found it difficult choosing the final dress. I wanted a dress that was different to what everyone else was getting and that would really make a statement. I ended up seeing a dress on Instagram and thought it would be perfect for the day. When I tried it on, it made me smile and it felt right. It was a hand beaded bodice made up of Swarovski crystals matched with a fitted silk skirt, both from Rachel Gilbert.”

Gerard Maguire and Carla Sellwood who happen to be Jess’ uncle and Aiden’s sister officiated the ceremony, Jess telling, “We wanted our ceremony to be really intimate and personal. My uncle and Aiden’s sister performed the ceremony so it made it even more special. We had two readings which were read by my brother and Aiden’s sister.”

The beautiful Lindenderry At Red Hill  set the scene for the big day. The bride remarking, “We chose this venue as since moving to Melbourne, the Mornington Peninsula is somewhere that we like to go to escape the hustle and bustle of the city. We also didn’t want people to have to travel between the ceremony and reception. As a lot of our guests were coming from interstate, Lindenderry was somewhere that offered not only beautiful surroundings for our photos but also accommodation for guests, a day spa and only a short drive to places like Sorrento, Portsea and the Peninsula hot springs.”

Of their photographer, Jess remembers, “Shelley and her side kick Jenna were amazing! They weren’t like other photographers who become quite awkward and in the way but they added to the fun and became part of the day. They were happy to share our banter and weren’t scared when we decided that wheelbarrow races were the thing to do on your wedding day!”

Bloominel styled the rich floral arrangements for the day, Jess remembering, “The photographer and florist were my favourite vendors. They both made the decision making a breeze and were so easy to work with. They understood what our vision was and it definitely translated on the day.”

The day had a few fun handmade elements. “We were mindful of our budget but knew where to splurge and where to save. We made our own favours using plastic test tubes and filled them with different teas and coffees. Aiden also made the ‘Love’ letter lights which looked amazing and saved us a lot of money!”

Jess and Aiden chose Sam Smith’s “Latch” for their first dance, choosing the The Baker Boys  to provide music for the dance floor.

Even though everyone was watching, it felt like Aiden and I were the only ones in the room.”

Enchanting Vintage Gown Inspiration

by | Australia - Victoria, Bride, Inspiration Shoot,

Vintage, boho, recycled, rural. That is how the super talented Catherine Forge, who photographed this gown in all its glory, describes this enchanting vintage gown inspiration shoot that we have fallen in love with at Polka Dot Bride! Catherine was going for an ethereal aura for the shoot that would show off this stunning vintage gown in a relaxed country setting, at a private property in Gembrook, Victoria. The exquisite beading, the shimmer within the fabric and overall glamour of the gown in the afternoon sunlight makes for a breathtaking inspiration shoot indeed.

Catherine delves into the inspiration behind the shoot! “It was actually the dress that inspired the shoot! I couldn’t believe my eyes when I found this vintage dress in my local op shop, the Salvos store in Collingwood. It was in immaculate condition, and had original beading and hand stitching, as well as a stunning trail at the back. It also had a dry cleaning tag attached that looked like it came from sometime around the 1970s, so I think the dress could possibly date back to the 1960s, however I’m no dress expert so it’s anyone’s guess! I loved the idea of bringing the dress back to life, and giving it a modern bridal twist. I teamed up with a dream team duo, sisters Jennifer and Suzie Elphinstone. The stunning Jennifer to model the dress and talented makeup artist Suzie did hair and makeup. The flowers were from my favourite local florist, Fowlers Flowers. I asked for a bouquet that would pick up on the gold colours in the dress, and the team there put together a beautiful arrangement of stunning seasonal flowers and greenery.”

“With this styled shoot I wanted to give a bit of inspiration and “food-for-thought” to brides out there seeking something a bit different. As a wedding photographer I get the pleasure of seeing a lot of different kinds of beautiful wedding dresses, however it’s less often that a bride decides to buck the tradition and wear a non-white dress. When I got married myself in 2013 I tried on some white dresses, but they didn’t feel right on me and I ended up going with a tea-length 1950s style dress with a coloured floral pattern. I loved having the freedom to wear what I wanted and to not feel constricted by tradition.”

The lovely Catherine was inspired by the history of wedding gowns in her previous role as a historian. “I worked as a historian before becoming a wedding photographer, and find it fascinating to reflect on the evolution of the wedding dress over time. In Western culture wedding dresses weren’t always white – it wasn’t until the late 1800s that white became a popular option following the royal wedding of Queen Victoria and Albert of Saxe-Coburg in 1840. The Queen’s white dress featured stunning and expensive satin and lace, and in the following decades wearing a white wedding dress became synonymous with social standing and wealth, as white fabrics were more expensive and difficult to attain. White continues to be the most popular option today, but it’s great to know that there are options out there for brides who want to experiment with different colours, textures and designs, or even to recycle a beautiful vintage dress!”

Kellsey & Joel

With a black tie dress code, a stunning marquee, a decadent wedding gown and a country setting – this glam country wedding ticks all the boxes for something truly special. The memories of rain, of dancing and of a beautiful ceremony captured by gm photographics  are of course what makes it so truly perfect.

On how they met, Kellsey tells, “We met when Joel moved from Sydney to Wellington to buy a business. We also used to see each other at the local gym.”
