Anything vintage style holds a place in my heart! A great choice for place cards

As a lover of all things Polka Dot, it really was only a matter of time before I posted about a Sydney based company called Polka Dot Cookies and Cakes.

In 2003, Elisabeth Marriner started baking delicious cookies for events- a unique, cute and totally delicious favour option for any bride wishing to spoil her guests!

The cookies come in all different shapes, colours and styles. I’m particularly partial to the “Vintage Lace’ design above, though the cute bride and grooms also have me drooling!

The flavours are diverse and your guests may be spoilt with anything from vanilla bean to lavender or pistachio! They’ll even help you package them in cello bags or cookie jars. A perfect addition to any table setting, these treats are sure to have your guests going ga ga!

Polka Dot also have a large range of cakes- in flavours like Lemon and Lavender with Lemon Buttercream, no plain fruit cake here (though I’m sure they’d oblige if you asked!)

For the girly hen, Polka Dot can put together a ‘High Tea’ package- English, Australian or Moroccan, with delicious desserts for each guest. A perfect way to spend a lazy Sunday afternoon.

Perfect for a spring garden wedding perhaps?

I love cake. Wedding cakes are often works of art and the varieties are endless.

I think aside from the wide range of flavours now in existence, the designs of cakes are becoming more beautiful every year as cake designers experiment with different techniques.

For something a little different I recently stumbled across Cake Stories. Cake Stories makes beautiful cakes reminiscent of a Martha Stewart magazine cover.


An autumn wedding, with rich browns and golds would suit this cake!

Cake Stories was started by Nicholas Pelekis who is a French trained pastry chef. He brings emotion into his cakes and designs the most delicious looking treats personalised for each couple

A lot of brides want to get married in a church but aren’t religious, or have conflicting religious backgrounds. Many cities in Australia don’t provide a lot of indoor options for winter or weather concerned brides, sometimes a foyer of the reception venue is all there is!

St Michaels is a non denominational church located in the heart of Melbourne- perfect for any city bride!

St Michaels church features beautiful stained glass windows dating back to the 1800’s- said to display the most existential-religious stained glass anywhere in the Southern Hemisphere.

The building itself was designed by Joseph Reed whose other works include the Melbourne town hall. Joseph loved to design in the Lombardic style of architecture.
