Ashleigh’s Polka Dot Wedding Dress

Ashleigh and Phil created a fun-filled, colourful wedding that reflected their personalities and the paths they had travelled to meet one another. They exchanged vows at the Aquinas College Chapel where Phil went to school before partying the night away at the Monk, their favourite place to hang with friends and their pup, Marv.

Ashleigh chose to have her dress made as she was after a tea length vintage inspired dress and there wasn’t really anything ‘ready made’ in this style. We came up with a lace and polka dot wedding dress design that ticked all the boxes! It was all the tiny details that made Ashleigh’s dress so unique – the lace sleeves, the silk sash that tied into a bow at the back, the handmade buttons and the polka dot tulle skirt.

Aquinas College Chapel

We got married in the Aquinas College Chapel. We chose this location as the chapel  itself and school grounds are so beautiful. The stained glass work inside the chapel is amazing and Phil went to school at Aquinas – so its a pretty special place for us.”

The Dress

“My wedding dress made me feel beautiful! It was super comfortable and lots of fun to wear – great for lots of twirling on the D-floor. It was everything I hoped it would be and more. The wedding dress of my dreams!”
