Vintage Rose Tablescape

A softer tablescape this afternoon. (this feels like one of those features where you can change the room for different styles!) I called this one “Vintage Rose” the soft latte, the cream, the peachy pink roses, wooden candelabras evoke a softer feel.

I love the old fashioned doily style table overlay and the pattern on the china. The little details and textures add a little extra charm. This table scape lit up by candle lit would create such a pretty, warm glow at your reception.

Garden Glamour Tablescape

I thought I’d share a few gorgeous tablescapes today sent over by the lovely Calli of  Calli B Photography. Two completely different looks to inspire you!

I named this one “Garden Glamour”, but it’s not a traditional English style garden whose influence we see in weddings a lot nowadays, it’s more of a richly hued, tropical garden without being overpowering.

Tall arrangements, stunning green china, masses of flowers in pinks and creams in mismatched glass containers and the latte lace style doily table overlay.

Madeline and Michael joined their mask clad guests at their reception (held at Ducks Crossing). They danced their first dance to “Forever” by Ben Harper, served mini pavlovas in lieu of cake and partied the night away. What a beautiful night!

Thank you Madeline and Michael for allowing us to share your wedding day on Polka Dot Bride! Thank you also to Hailey and the You Can’t Be Serious team for sharing such a gorgeous wedding with us today!

Madeline and Michael

I have such a fun wedding for you today- a masquerade ball style wedding! Held in Newcastle,the masquerade theme was more than just for fun for Madeline and Michael.

Madeline shares why. “We decided on this theme because we both believe in equality for each other. We found that the significance of the bride being unveiled needed to be for the groom as well. This is because we are both exposing and showing our selves to each other. For the wedding only the bride and groom were masked until the vows and then at the reception our guests were masked but we were not.

The couple went to primary school together, though different high schools. Upon graduating, their paths crossed again at a party and decided it was time to properly catch up.

You Can’t Be Serious were on hand to capture the magic of Madeline and Michael’s wedding day!

Madeline carried a bouquet of white gerberas and  purple lisianthus. A pale blue swallow brooch was pinned to her bouquet.

Madeline wore a Maggie Sottero gown and has some advice for brides yet to wed “Remember to put the hoop on first! But that’s what you have bridesmaids for, good photos but embarrassing moments! Also make a checklist for what you will need, like the ipod with the music or even shoes..but you will always have a best man to do your last minutes errands.”

The ceremony was held at St James Anglican Church in Morpeth. Madeline walked to the aisle to Sarah Blasko’s “Woman By The Well”. One of Madeline’s favourite memories was having her mother at the ceremony, she had told the couple since their engagement she might not have the strength to be there, but she made it on the day.
