We’re back!~ That’s right! All the patterned people have dived out of food & drink comas(or in my case, plenty of sleep coma) and we’re emerging ready to fill our pages with plenty of wedding inspiration!

If you got engaged over the festive season and this is your first time visiting us- a big congratulations! We’re pretty relaxed around here, the sun is shining, the birds are singing (actually that’s a cricket chirping but let’s just pretend) and we have plenty of beautiful weddings and pretty things coming your way!

Firstly though, I want to take a moment to showcase one of our directory members. Ms Polka Dot’s Directory is growing each and every week full of Australian and international wedding vendors who just get what Polka Dot Bride is all about- which means they also understand what you as couples wedded to be also want. Creative, personal, beautiful weddings that represent who YOU are!

With great excitement I’m now turning to gush about our first vendor of the week for 2012, Hannah Millerick Photography! Hannah is a Brisbane based photographer with not only a fantastic sense of humor, but a beautiful way of capturing light. Hannah worked for over seven years as an editorial photographer for the major newspapers before turning her hand to weddings. She has a beautiful easiness about her photography and they’re injected with plenty of humor!

We asked Hannah of Hannah Millerick Photography five questions in five minutes.

Your favourite wedding story?

I was privileged enough to photograph Chris and Clare’s exclusive wedding at the Queensland Club on Alice Street in the city. Chris and Clare are quite conservative and let’s just say a tad shy. It wasn’t long into the location shoot, we were in stitches with laughter, being goose’s. At one point I crossed the road to shoot the from the other side with the city in the background. All of a sudden, the best man walked onto the middle of the road and stopped the traffic so we could get our shots. Before I knew it, we were all running on the road in peak hour with cars and people waving, smiling, and cheering us all on. Such an incredibly fun 3 minutes. Got the most amazing photo’s.

After we thought it was all over, another awesome thing happened…See pictures below.
