Red And Bright Aqua Cheerful Celebration

by | Bride, Inspiration Boards


The lovely Danielle has been so patient while I created this board for her sister in law!

The bride and groom are planning an aqua and red celebration in a barn on a lavender farm. They want something fun and cheerful and very bright! They’ve planned a candy bar and are keeping things casual.

Gwendolynne Burkin

by | Bridal Fashion, Bride


Melbourne designer Gwendolynne Burkin captured my heart many moons again when I spotted an amazing creation she’d designed.

With a fresh website and beautiful photography, it was only fitting to introduce her to the readers of Polka Dot Bride.

Gwendolynne designs only on “gut reaction and instinct”. With a background in pattern making, Gwendolynne uses exquisite cuts, stunning fabrics and creativity.

There’s a sense of dramatic, feminine elegance to her designs – the spiderweb of lace, the draping of the beaded headpieces that is simply beautiful.

Snapshot Sunday – Walking On Sunshine

by | Bride, Photography, Snapshot Sundays


That one walk back down the aisle once you’re married is full of sunshine. I think this photo of Sandrina and Jay’s wedding (see more here) by Dave and Charlotte captures the joy.

Sandrina, Jay and their bridal party donned retro sunglasses for the processional.
