Happy Monday Dotties! It’s such a  thrill to be posting this on our brand new site, though I have been looking at it for so long I am stuck between barely believing it’s real and feeling like it’s comfortable – like a snuggly jumper! I’m so thrilled to kick this off before the end of the year!

I love a tradition and if you’re a long time Polka Dot Bride reader, you’ll know every Monday morning we kick off the week with a sneak peek at the fabulous members of Ms Polka Dot’s Directory.  From incredible Bridal Gowns, beautifully designed Stationery & Paper Goods, Flowers, Styling & Hire to the ultimate coordinators- the Wedding Planners. We have it all and we’re adding brand new vendors each and every week!

We’re big fans of the lovely Julia Jane Photography here at Polka Dot Bride (Julia’s husband even shared their wedding over on Polka Dot Groom!). Julia has always loved photography and has been working professionally as a wedding photographer for three years. Julia splits her time between Sydney, Canberra and the wonderful Paris with the mission to photograph people with those that they love.

We asked Julia from Julia Jane Photography five questions in five minutes –

What is your favourite after five drink?

My favourite after 5 drink is champagne to celebrate a day well lived!

Your favourite weekend getaway?

My favourite weekend getaway is my mum and dad’s place in country NSW where I grew up. Fresh air, horses and open fire places are the perfect enticements to relax. Mum and Dad too of course…

Favourite restaurant?

Favourite restaurant, Le Petite Zinc 11 Rue Saint-Benoît, Paris. My husband took me there our first night in France together.

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

Best Sunday breaky would be an omelette at home in the sun.

Your favourite wedding story?

My favourite wedding story would be from a very early wedding of mine in Melbourne. The couple had been together for ten years and the beautiful bride was so very excited that she seemed to hover above the ground around the hotel as we prepared. When I said this to her she replied “yes I feel like I might just turn into a butterfly and float away”. It was so awesome to see such certain happiness and reminds me to keep trying in this brilliant job!
