Jennifer Regan

by | Bridal Fashion, Bride


Sydney designer Jennifer Regan is not new to the bridal design field- she’s been evolving her business for over ten years! Previously called Embryo, Jennifer has recently renamed her business Jennifer Regan.

I love the 1930s sleek silhouettes of her gowns- they show off the curves and lines of the female form while being beautifully made with unique fabrics and detailing. For every ounce of simplicity in her designs, there is just as much drama- the gowns have strong lines which suit the bride who is sure of herself, who knows exactly what she wants.

Jennifer offers ready to wear, demi couture and couture design.

Vendor Of The Week – Lumina Motion Pictures

by | Blog News, Bride


Good Monday morning Polka Dot Bridettes! Did you have a lovely weekend?

It’s time to start our week off the right way with a look at one of the vendors from Ms Polka Dot’s Directory. We really enjoy working with the talented people in our directory- they fill our inboxes with so much sunshine so regularly. We couldn’t keep the lights on and the cogs and wheels running at Polka Dot Bride without these very special people so pop on over to Ms Polka Dot’s Directory and see what you can find!

Jacinta & Jeremy – Noosa Beach Wedding from Lumina Motion Pictures on Vimeo.

Clay & Tamara – Amore at Amamoor from Lumina Motion Pictures on Vimeo.

Donna & Eddie – Soulmates from Lumina Motion Pictures on Vimeo.

This week’s Vendor Of The Week is Queensland cinematographer Lumina Motion Pictures owned by husband and wife team Richelle and Shane. Wedding videos have come a long way in the past few years- today’s films are almost documentaries of the wedding day. From the first speech, to the vows and everything in between, wedding cinematography is exploring a new and beautiful way of capturing your wedding.

Lumina Motion Pictures tell the story beautifully- I’ve never watched a video of theirs without a lump rising in my throat as I watch their stories unfold. The moments are captured as they happen- the words as they roll off the tongue and the secret glances all on film.

To learn a little more about Lumina Motion Pictures we asked Richelle five questions in five minutes!

What is your favourite after five drink?

Earl Grey tea with brie cheese and water crackers!

Your favourite weekend getaway?

Staying at home without the kids!

Favourite restaurant?

I quite like Montego’s on the Bay but my favourite would have to be a little known, locals only kind of place called Lefty’s. It’s not fancy but the food is great and the atmosphere relaxing.

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

Shane, my husband and business partner makes great ‘sugar free’ pancakes. They are the whole families favourite breakky (Yeah, I know the sugar free thing is a bit weird but it’s not as hard as it sounds and the pancakes really are great!).

Your favourite wedding story?

There is just too many to choose from! Our love story films give us the opportunity to film our couples telling their own love story so we get to find out all the lovely little details of how they met and fell in love. Most recently I have loved hearing about the grooms asking their father-in-law-to-be for their blessing. It can seem a bit outdated in our modern society and as women of the 21st century we don’t really feel that we need our fathers permission to marry the man we love but it is a lovely sign of respect between, often the two most important men in our lives.

Tamila and Jeremy’s Californian Engagement Shoot

by | Bride, Engagements


Tamila and Jeremy

I love this sweet engagement session submitted by idropphoto. When I think of engagement shoots in California, they’re always filled with lots of sunshine – which is wonderful! But it’s nice to see something a little different. Tamila and Jeremy’s engagement shoot is filled with luscious green fields and mossy landscapes A little delicious don’t you think? (and how much do I love Tamila’s boots?)

Tamila recalls how she met her fiance Jeremy. “Jeremy and I met in the college group of our home church. I was new to the church and still a senior in high school when I joined the young adults group. Jeremy was the worship leader so I noticed him every Tuesday and Sunday. We hadn’t become friends until later. However, Jeremy’s first distinct memory of me was at our Christmas party when it was time to tear down the room, I had stood on a chair to take down the lights and my foot got caught coming down, so I fell right off and hit my head against the wall. Jeremy had thought I hurt myself real bad until I started to laugh, then he thought I was crazy 🙂 A few months later my dad had passed away and that was when I started to get to know Jeremy more since his dad had passed away a few years prior.

Soon we began to hang out in groups together and it wasn’t until almost a year later that Jeremy started to notice me and pray about me. I had also been praying about him. January 13, 2010 was the day he had opened up and said that he had wanted to pursue me. That was the day we began dating and 10 months later on November 21, 2010 Jeremy sang me a song asking for me to follow him and be his wife! The sweetest and greatest day it was! “
