Kristi Bonnici “Moments Of Trespass” Bridal Accessories

by | Accessories, Bride


I almost can’t believe it’s only been eight months since I first came across the gorgeous bridal accessories of Sydney designer Kristi Bonnici. I fell for Kristi’s gorgeous inspired hair pieces, capes and polka dot veils. Now she’s back with two brand new collections which are filled with beautiful details and give a stunning selection of options for your bridal head wear. No veil? No problem, how about a beautiful headband? A silk flower? Or a crystal embellished clip?

First up is Kristi’s new bridal collection “Moments of Trespass” which is “inspired by thoughts of love, both good and bad and depicts the endless recollecting for the lucky and eternal lamenting for the broken hearted”. I love the softness of this range and that Kristi has included her divine Swiss dots again!

Along with her gorgeous bridal designs, Kristi has also launched Sugar & Spice – a collection for the bridesmaids, mother of the bride or even for a fun touch for your day at the races. This collection comes in blush, black & metallic colour ways.

Which is your favourite?

Badgley Mischka Bridesmaids

by | Bride, Bridesmaids


As much as I love shorter gowns, floral gowns and gowns with a bit of a twist, there is something to be said for a floor length, classically elegant bridesmaid’s gown. The new collection of Badgley Mischka bridesmaids gowns have just landed in Australia and I love their classic style – from asymmetrical necklines to cinched in waists and a light ruffle. They’re stylish and elegant and look like they’re straight off the red carpet.

I really love the strapless pink and strapless mint floor length gowns – such a beautiful option for upcoming Spring weddings!

Badgley Mischka bridesmaids gowns are stocked at Basilica Couture in Sydney (interstate orders are welcome). Each gown is available in 10 to 12 colour options and can made in sizes from 6 to 26. Gowns may take up top 12 weeks to be made and delivered to Sydney but can arrive faster with a rush fee.

Vendor of the Week – Michelle Kiddie Photography

by | Blog News, Bride


Welcome to another week on Polka Dot Bride! Is it the second week of August already – oh, how the time flies!

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!

I love candid moments and amazing captures in photography so I’m pleased to introduce you to Michelle Kiddie Photography who is this week’s Polka Dot Bride Vendor of The Week! I love how Michelle captures the little moments as well as formal portraits and classic photographs.

Based in Perth, Michelle makes it her mission to look for the story (which we love because that’s what I do with every post at Polka Dot Bride!) from the moment the bride gets dressed, to the vows, the intimate time together to the big celebratory reception. Michelle also treats her work as art- and I love that, because photographs ARE art and to tell a story through one is a little piece of magic.

To learn a little more about Michelle Kiddie Photography we asked Michelle five questions in five minutes!

What is your favourite after five drink?

A Pimms and Lemonade does the business.

Your favourite weekend getaway?

Packing the tent for camping weekend where we toast marshmallows over a campfire and snuggle up in sleeping bags under the stars.

Favourite restaurant?

Kitch in Leederville, Perth for its funky vibe and relaxed atmosphere

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

Poached eggs on toast.

Your favourite wedding story?

My own! We got married at Leonardi Da Vinci‚Äôs house outside of Florence, followed by a reception at a magnificent Medici Villa overlooking the rolling Tuscan hills. I only wish I was allowed to be the photographer as well as the bride…is that possible? That was ten years ago and is as fresh in my mind as if it were yesterday.
