Vendor of the Week – Me & My Camera Wedding Films

by | Blog News, Bride


Happy Monday! Hasn’t winter well and truly set in? What a day to snuggle up and pour over wedding inspiration!

First up, let’s spotlight the fabulous members of Ms Polka Dot’s Directory!

We have everyone from amazing catering. divine cakes, beautiful creators of stationery & paper goods, flowers, photographers and even gift registries. All come together in our wedding directory and create incredible weddings for our dotties!


 I love a beautiful wedding film and our vendor of the week is Me & My Camera! Danae is a traveling wedding film and documentary maker- so she’s seen a lot of the world! Her love of life flows beautifully through the wedding films she creates and her appreciation of the beauty of Mother Nature is incorporated into each film.

We asked Danae from Me & My Camera five questions in five minutes –

What is your favourite after five drink?
At the moment I am going through a citrus phase, but it’s always changing.

Your favourite weekend getaway?
I like to try different things, so my weekends usually involve grabbing a map and jumping on a train.

Favourite restaurant?
It wouldn’t be fair to chose just one, but I do love this little German restaurant near where I used to live. They do these big plates of rustic home cooked goodness. I always order the same thing; Jaeger schnitzel, deep fried camembert and an apple cider.

What can we find you eating for breakfast on a Sunday morning?
Preferably Coffee and left over Cake, someone has usually been baking.

Your favourite wedding story?
Probably a story a bride once told during her speech. She was describing what she loves doing with her husband, how they like to lie in the sun playing sudoku and in the evenings they dance around at home with their little daughter…. it was just so honest and real, the stuff it’s all about.

Remiko and Warren’s Lazy Saturday Engagement

by | Bride, Engagements


Remiko & Warren

Lazy Saturdays are my favourite kind of day, so Remiko and Warren’s engagement session captured by Sundstrom Images hit a note with me. Yummy coffee, the local paper, a beautiful walk in the sunshine. What a way to spend a day!

Here’s their romantic story! “We’ve been friends for a very long time, having met and worked together during our university days. Although we never dated back then, there was an attraction between us that we weren’t willing to admit. Instead , we would boogie away at music festivals, wild nights of drinking with friends in the city and shared travel dreams over chocolate at Max Brenner.”

“Warren left for the UK first in 2009 whilst Remiko took to the States. Over this period, we kept in touch and finally reunited in London where our friendship became a relationship after a night dancing to the tunes of 90s RNB. Thank you Harlem Bar.”

“We’ve travelled Europe extensively together, from the ski slopes of Austria, the cosmopolitan Cities in Spain through to the mesmerising Greek Islands. However, it was in the quaint and breathtaking Amalfi Coast of Italy where Warren asked for Remiko to spend the rest of their lives together. Having now returned back to Sydney, we are planning for our wedding in 2013 in Vanuatu.”

Winter Wedding Warmth With Cardigans

by | Accessories, Bridal Fashion, Bride, Bridesmaids


It’s winter, it’s cold and the best thing to do is to snuggle into a wool cardigan and sip a hot cup of tea. If you’re a bride however the challenge of keeping warm gets a little more complicated. But with these sweet as can be cardigans, the chill can turn into an excuse to rug up into something warm, fluffy and beautiful.
