Honestly, love needs no filter, no splendour. Polkadot + Moonbeam was honoured to play for such an intimate honest wedding at North Perth Town Hall this weekend past. For want of a better title, ‘honesty’ is chosen in hope of encapsulating all that honesty means to us – courage, love, purity, compassion, creativity, humility. It seems that no matter how we tried to put it forth in words, our gratitude exceeds what we have endeavoured to express.
Lillian and I would like to express our sincere gratitude again for your beautiful singing that really touched our 💓. When Lillian started to cry when you sung ‘Through It All’, my heart melted and I fell even more in love with Lillian. Reminded me of how good and faithful my God is.
Thank you again and I’m sure our paths will cross again.
Blessings and Love, Jason & Lillian
We have shared with the beautiful couple how this would have been our DREAM wedding. We love making things from what we have. Moonbeam has a knack for collecting parts, scraps, and making them into new things, useful, creative and I love putting a sparkle to it with colour or removing information to reveal light through these little projects we have. Our wedding in 2013 was such. But we weren’t half as close to being truly HONEST to what would have been US.
And this wasn’t just something they could call and hire. This was a couple who not only knew who they were, what they enjoyed, but knew they couldn’t do it without the blessings from those about them who love them truly, dearly. They had good help starting from planning/coordinating, to logistics, to hosting, decorating (arbour, and more), sound systems, ….and more! So imagine how honoured we felt to be hand-picked by such a couple on their special day.
It would seem pretty normal that the wedding singers should just rock up to something after Wedding vendors (and we have very VERY talented craftsmen and artists of various departments in Western Australia, Perth not withholding) have prepared and decorated everything a night or two before, and then feel completely impressed by the works of these amazing people – as we certainly have, many a time. But here was the bride and groom, and their good friends, contributing every bit of their time and efforts, out of LOVE to ensure the couple had THE best on this day. So imagine P+M’s gaping little paws and mouths and eyes when they saw a cute little coffee cart (@artemcoffee – because the couple adore coffee, and so did everyone else), their personally decorated arbour put up by friends (yes, we beat the windy blows of blessings!), the red carpet (literally rolled out), the little potted palms, and the entire reception after the ceremony beautifully decorated, the coffee menu, the programme card – so much Detail and Heart… WE LOVED IT. It reminded me of my early school days, an assembly hall transformed into a dream of a wedding with dearest friends and families.
I run the risk of saying too much – words can ruin when they are inadequate – and they are! So i will leave you with my favourite musical moments. The bride and groom picked ‘Through It All’ (by Hillsong) and that was a real honour to sing. The presence of the Lord filled the space. And it was anything but religious. Just purely simply CALM. I also loved their choice of ‘Our Love is Here to Stay‘ as they signed in the presence of their mothers. It felt so genuinely sweet, real and unrehearsed. I wish we took the pictures of the little toddlers who danced along to our swingy duets, it was precious. Kids really DO GET JAZZ. It’s so simple when we let go to feel that bounce of joy in our lives. With their permission, I will share this photo after i shared a moment with them before they made their joyous entrance into the hall as husband and wife. A windy morning and the ‘Blue Skies’ (as they’d requested as their Recessional song) really turned up, cornflower blue, and peppered with happy clouds).
This is the precious couple we played for for their ceremony and pre-reception this Saturday passed. We have their permission to publish this little moment I had whilst waiting for coffee(! They had their own lil coffee cart @artemcoffee 👌 ). It is hard to express our overwhelming gratitude to be witnessing their union, and why it takes a special place of almost humbling in our hearts, but we will try. Our words in profile link. Congrats Lillian and Jason, enjoy 🇬🇷 & 🇪🇸 ♡ All our love and blessings – P+M x #chewlingforever ƪ(˘⌣˘)ʃ
Thank you Jason and Llillian, we feel like we love you so much even though our meetings were short. God bless you both with many wonderful adventures.
All our love and blessings,
