Vendor of the Week – Danicia Dutry Ceremonies

by | Blog News, Bride


I want to take a moment this morning to pause and reflect on this time ten years ago. Although the 11th was yesterday in Australia, it really wasn’t until the 12th for us when the news started hitting our US friends. So today, I want to take a breath and say-we will never forget. New York is always in my heart.

It’s Monday morning which means a spotlight on Ms Polka Dot’s Directory! Our directory is a one stop shop to help you find the best wedding vendors for your wedding – from stylists to stationers, photographers and cakes! They’re incredibly talented, have a sense of style and love working with dotties! Take a peek today and look through their beautiful work!

Her friendly, warm nature and her expertise makes Danicia a wonderful choice for performing your marriage ceremony. Danicia also performs vow renewals and naming ceremonies- so keep her name in your book!

To learn a little more about Danicia Dutry Ceremonies we asked Danicia five questions in five minutes!

What is your favourite after 5 drink?

After 5 drink would have to be the Kalleske Moppa – a red that warms me to my toes.

Your favourite weekend getaway?

I just love Rottnest Island (WA) winter or summer. It just brings out my inner child and is filled with so many memories.

Favourite restaurant?

Well technically a bar where you can eat the burgers from next door but hanging out with Mrs Brown in North Fremantle is one of my favourite activities.

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

You would find me at our family table eating porridge before we rush out the door to Auskick with my young lads.

Your favourite wedding story?

Sitting on Geographe Bay on a bright orange kayak in a turquoise kaftan on a magically calm day with a lovely couple and their witnesses anchored on their own separate kayaks. The groom had designed his own floating coconut shell with ribbons to keep the rings securely attached until they were safe on fingers. His bride looked so amazing in her white sarong with orchards in her hair. I loved watching the groom brush away his tears and curse the sunscreen in his eyes as he watched her come over the sand dune and down to her kayak. Not too many grooms could blame the sunscreen!!

Pamela and Anthony’s Pinwheel Engagement Shoot

by | Australia - New South Wales, Bride, Engagements


Pamela and Anthony

Today’s engagement shoot feels like the best way to spend a Saturday – in a grassy, country field with a stack of colourful pinwheels and your soon to be! Pamela and Anthony met through mutual friends. “Anthony was playing football for a local team and I knew one of his friends who introduced us. But a few weeks after we met, Anthony left for London to play football over there. We kept in touch for the first few months but then we lost contact as he got busy with team commitments and I was back at Uni. When Anthony came back from London (after a year and a half) he got back in touch with me (with a bit of effort too, as I had changed my number, moved etc so all he had to go off was an old email address). We met up coffee after he finally tracked me down and the sparks were still very much there, we have been together since then.” Photos by Angelica Peady Photography
