Vendor of the Week – Huxby Haberdashery

by | Blog News, Bride


Happy Monday Dotties! I am hoping this week is a little warmer than last. We’re set for a big week of wedding inspiration, what wedding plans do you have for the week?

Our first blog post of the working week, so settle down with a coffee while we highlight and show off the members of Ms Polka Dot’s Directory.  We have Hair and Beauty, we have Wedding Planners, we have Photography, we even have Cakes! Our Directory is full of lovely vendors who are committed to providing the best possible service to you for your wedding day.

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

Custom wedding bowties

Let’s think about the men in your life for a moment!  What would complete their wedding day outfits and make them unique and extra stylish? Well made, bespoke accessories of course! Emily of Huxby Haberdashery creates hand made ties, bowties and pocket squares right here in Australia. Choose your base fabric, the colour and design and go ahead and order. If you want colour matching, just send Emily a colour sampe – a flower, piece of bridesmaid dress fabric – and she can create custom made pieces for a perfectly co-ordinated wedding look.

We asked Emily of Huxby Haberdashery five questions in five minutes:

What is your favourite after five drink?

The Clover Club – raspberries, egg whites, lime juice and gin. Delicious and pretty!

Your favourite weekend getaway?

The family holiday house in Anglesea, VIC. As you soon as you walk in the door you instantly relax.

Favourite restaurant?

Toko Japanese in Surry Hills, Sydney. The dishes are presented so beautifully in the Japanese style, it’s a nice place for a special occasion.

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

Poached eggs and smashed avocado at our favourite cafe. I’ve never been able to master the poached egg at home so we always eat out on weekends.

Your favourite wedding story?

My other half Paul played guitar and sang at his sister’s wedding, as she walked down the aisle. I was so proud of him and it was very sweet.

Jess & Simon’s Golden Afternoon Forest Engagement

by | Bride, Engagements


Afternoon Forest Engagement017

Jess & Simon

Jess and Simon took to a gorgeous forest with Simone Addison Photography for their engagement photos. They even brought along Roxy, their very special red heeler, because to them it wasn’t going to be complete without her there. The couple met through Jess’ best friend, who also happens to be Simon’s colleague.

Jess tells, “We love our dog and wanted her to be a part of our save the date cards. It was a lot of fun having her a part of the shoot and the location worked perfectly, and was safe for her to run around while we had some more intimate photos.”

Jess tells the story of how Simon proposed. “Simon took me shopping to get “sized” for a ring. We got an idea of what we wanted and decided to visit a jeweller recommended by a friend who custom makes rings. After meeting with the jeweller we’d decided on the ring I wanted and ended up ordering the ring! As we’d done that process alone together and told no one (which was so hard!), Simon wanted our families to be there when he proposed.

Simon organised a weekend away with both parents and proposed to me in front of them. It was so nice to finally share it with them!”
