Weddings: Ukulele Jazz at Matilda Bay

It’s not everyday one gets to enjoy a jazz ukulele performance at the gorgeous Matilda Bay. Gentle waves on the blue waters, and a setting sun behind a quirky tepee!!! Well, Polkadot + Moonbeam sure did! 😉

When we first played at a wedding fair in a tepee (TP&Co), we met the lovely couple, Radhika + Dennis. A few months later, we found ourselves once again reunited with the tepee (tipi) by the beautiful Bay. There aren’t that many breath-taking spots just outside the CBD area and Perth definitely has Matilda Bay rockin’ up with a trophy, easily.

Of course, this wasn’t possible without the highly creative eye… and hands(!) of Jessica Butcher. Once again we have the pleasure of working with her. She understands the use of space, gets beauty and function all at once, and most all, her signature for us, is her use of eucalypts in her table arrangements and room decor. Just spectacular.

It was so easy just swaying up with our tinkles by the sea over classics like La Mer, The Nearness of You and more. Champagne, cocktails and little dainty savoury delights as we waited for the guests to arrive.

We also had the pleasure of meeting Mason and David from mdttography. Young and incredibly talented videographers. Then the DJs Hester and Lester brought the soul unto the dance floor for the evening. R+D’s very cute and groovy entrance opened the night’s celebrations as P+M made their way back to their little automobile, watching the sunset over the horizon.
