Angela Marcuccio Bridal 2015 Collection

by | Bridal Fashion, Bride


Designer Angela Marcuccio has long been a fixture in the Melbourne bridal industry, known for her exquisite couture designs.  Her 2015 collection has completely switched it up. From couture, Angela had moved into off the rack, allowing gowns to reach a wider audience and more brides to walk down the aisle in an Angela Marcuccio gown on their wedding day.

Long known for her elegant, classic designs with a vintage romantic feel, the gowns keep in with Angela’s style. Each carefully constructed with high quality fabrics, classic shapes and traditional detailing. Beautiful ball gowns with tiered skirts, lace covered peplum bodices, sweet bow details and sleekly fitted fish tail gowns. It’s evident Angela is continually inspired by the stars of yesteryear.

The new Angela Marcuccio is available to view by appointment and soon available globally.

Vendor of the Week – Light and Shade Photography

by | Blog News, Bride


Happy Monday Dotties! I have been getting up earlier than the sun these past two weeks and it’s been a special kind of magic seeing the sun rise as I go about my work. The cold weather makes it all the better for endless cups of tea and that in itself makes my soul happy.

It’s the first day of our week of happy wedding inspiration so it’s time to highlight, spotlight and show off the members of Ms Polka Dot’s Directory.  We have Cinematographers, we have Specialised Services, we have Venues, we even have Hair and Beauty! We are thrilled to have our vendors on board to help you with all aspects of your wedding planning – why not take a look and find your perfect match?

Check out Ms Polka Dot’s Directory for wedding vendors who will love your wedding as much as you!




There is a soft, clean, light quality about Light and Shade Photography’s photographic style. Nature’s grasses and trees play as much of a role as the light and the shadows in the photographs, but with the bride and groom always playing the central role in each image. Emotion and the little details shine through – giving the feeling that you’re almost there enjoying every moment!

We asked Michaela of Light and Shade Photography five questions in five minutes –

What is your favourite after five drink?

Mojitos with lots of lime!

Your favourite weekend getaway?

Byron Bay or anywhere with a beach!

Favourite restaurant?

I love Peasant at The Barracks in Brisbane. It is finger lickin good!

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

It has to be fresh poached eggs from our brothers farm with bacon, avocado and garlic mayo on a toasted turkish bread! … and coffee, always coffee!

Your favourite wedding story?

Probably anything to do with hardship – it gets me every time. One couple married just before the husband was leaving to serve in Afghanistan. It just added this extra emotional intensity to the day.

There is a lot to love about these dreamy country engagement photos from Queensland photographer White Images. The setting sun, of course gives a certain air of magic but there is also a beautiful peace about Laura and Sam and their love together.

As with most wonderful love stories, the happy couple met through a friend, noting, “We met through a mutual friend, Gaz, almost 10 years ago. Laura went to primary school with him and Sam meet him at University.”

Laura and Sam remark, “We are best friends. We are always trying to make each other laugh. Whether it’s date night or a lazy Friday night on the couch with chocolate, we are having fun.”

It made sense for the couple to take engagement photos at sunset, Sam proposing at sunset at the beach.

The love started early. “One of our first dates was floating down a river on some pool toys. We floated underneath a boat to share a few kisses, only for the owner to catch us out.”
