Weddings: P.S I Heart You

“As we walked up the music was the first thing I heard and I thought – wow, this sounds like the best party in the world! The music was really important to us, and we absolutely loved your unique sound and it truly made our day. Thanks so much for making last Saturday one of the best days of our lives.” – Annaliese + Joshua

Congratulations to the lovely couple Annaliese + Joshua! Such a privilege to play for your beautiful wedding. We are still buzzing with excitement from being part of all that loveliness, playing for your cocktail set before the super-fun and happy bridal party entrance… 😉  

P.S Art Space at Fremantle turned out to be one of the most creative spaces we have played for weddings at in W.A! And not without the lovely and very talented Jessica Butcher, of course. What an eye for art. We will let the pictures speak for themselves.

With a touch of pink, an industrial art space with character could also start breathing with warm, bubbly love. Stylist Jess confesses it can be haaard convincing a groom to have pink seats.. but our groom was just too cool to refuse! We wish the lovely pair a beautiful start to a wonderful life together as husband and wifey!!

Weddings: Simply, heart

“Thank you so much!! You guys were so wonderful. It was the perfect evening and you created the perfect ambience!!” – Nicki + Tristen 

When you book P+M for you wedding, it says a lot about you. Well, we aren’t exactly your typical strummy top 40s duo. Polkadot mainly thumb-glides her jazz comps on the tenor ukulele, and Moonbeam walks all over the fretboard madly swinging, and their harmonies mark an old-fashioned sensibility that spells ‘vintage’. 


All the couples we have played for have all become very unforgettable to us as a result of that. That understanding and appreciation for our sound and pursuit for the ‘lovely, delightful and true’ in each of our duet arrangements is just priceless. Someone once said “All friendships stem from some degree of admiration and appreciation”. It is business, and we strive to give only our best, but our best is always from the heart. 

So in a huge way, we couldn’t help but feel that connection with Nicki when she promptly booked the band upon the first enquiry. 


Bluewater Grill turned out to be equally matched in heart. Beautiful earnest staff and gorgeous sunset view, and the lovely alfresco where the band was setup… it was the foundation of an unforgettable night with close friends you could sing, dance, party all night with, and family you could hug, kiss, snuggle up with under the stars.


A few tinkly ukulele-bass instrumentals – Hoagy Carmichael, Frank Loesser…. and more classic swing tunes from Sinatra and Ellington to get the feet a-tappin’, hips a-swayin’. Good times. Nicki overflowin’ with joy was just the best. We bless the lovely couple with a beautiful journey ahead of them. 

Weddings: Ukulele Jazz at Matilda Bay with Polkadot + Moonbeam

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.
