Vendor of the Week – Elliot Goblet Entertainment

by | Blog News, Bride


Happy Monday Dotties! We are well and truly underway into wedding season and I can say I am  excited to start seeing the gorgeous weddings on my social feeds!

As your wedding day approaches you’ll be ticking off lists, and feeling just a little frazzled. Why not try some yoga, a massage or even meditation (we show how here). Any of these will give you a period of calm in your preparations for your wedding.  We suggest you also take a look at Ms Polka Dot’s Directory for vendors who are keen to help you with your wedding day. We have Wedding Gifts & Registries, we have Entertainment, we have Hair & Beauty and Mobile Bars & Drinks Catering – we even have Catering and Venues! We so many wonderful vendors to choose from you’re sure to find some that you love.

Check out Ms Polka Dot’s Directory for wedding vendors who will love your wedding as much as you!

It’s just so nice to have no expectations of your guests on your wedding day, other than that they enjoy themselves. So rather than ask your Uncle or brother to step up and perform your Master of Ceremonies duties why not consider a professional MC? Jack of Elliot Goblet Entertainment has performed as a stand up comedian all over Australia as well as on television, so brings a wealth of experience in public speaking to his MC role. Covering all standard MC duties as well as entertaining your guests, Jack will take charge and you won’t have to worry about your day running smoothly – and Uncle John can let his hair down!!

We asked Jack of Elliot Goblet Entertainment five questions in five minutes:

What is your reward after a big working day?

Sometimes a relaxing night sitting in my spa and reflecting on the day. Other times a rewarding dinner with a rewarding glass of wine.

Favourite weekend getaway?

Queenscliff because of its old elegant stunning buildings, wonderful restaurants, friendly people and the Blues Train.

What is your most prized possession?

It’s hard to pick one but I do value my purchases from antique markets/shops…especially my old tins collection, 1920’s Gramophone and 1940’s Rocking Horse.

Favourite restaurant?

Riva in St Kilda (VIC). It is near the bay with terrific views from the balcony especially if there is one of those magic orange St Kilda sunsets. The restaurant has a wonderful ambience and serves superb meals.

What do you most enjoy about being in the wedding industry?

Working at some amazing venues large & small all over Australia and being in an environment where everyone is having a good time. I really love chatting with people of all ages at these happy occasions.

Jane & Simon’s Joyful Mount Tamborine Engagement Photos

by | Bride, Engagements,


Jane & Simon

I love to laugh, loud uproarious laughter that makes noise echo from the tree tops and this beautifully captured joyful Mount Tamborine engagement photos of Jane & Simon captured by Sophie Baker, are just that. Filled with laughter that you can practically hear through each photo and a story of a couple who clearly adore each other.

Jane and Simon share their story. “We first met in High School – Simon was at the grade 8 induction and Jane was a grade 9 liaison. We were both part of the basketball program and each had a crush on the other but were too dorky or shy to do anything about it.”

Simon had some convincing to do to get Jane alone for the proposal, she remembers. “Simon planned an incredibly romantic proposal at Paronella Park. The plan was to go on the midday tour and when we arrived at Teresa Falls, the tour (Guide and all) would carry on without us, unbeknownst to me. I really did not want to miss out on the tour so it took some quick thinking on Simons’ behalf to convince me to stay behind. He proposed with the falls behind us and in complete isolation, surrounded only by the birds and trees. It was magic. Every year we plan on going back to sit by the falls and enjoy the romance all over again.”

The shoot reflected a glorious day for the couple, Jane noting “Simon took me on our first date to Tambourine Mountain. We looked at the art galleries, ate too much fudge, drank too much wine, then ate too much pork knuckle. We often return, especially in the cooler months to enjoy a wine in front of a fireplace or an amazing view. It made sense to include it in our wedding, especially seeing we were getting married in Townsville, where we both grew up.”

On what she loves about her future husband, Jane remarks “There are so many things but two things stand out right away. He has a terrible sense of humour…which I can’t get enough of. The jokes are often wholesome and have a distinct 90’s throwback – the direct opposite of my own.
Simon has a gentle heart. It is not often he makes a decision without giving it full consideration to how it may impact the people around him. He is by far the most considerate person I have ever met.”

On what he loves about his wife to be, Simon says “Janey is the most thoughtful girl I’ve ever met. She always puts others before herself and I find that very special. Jane loves talking (even during movies) and I’m more of the quiet type, so we complement each other perfectly. She’s always making friends whether at the supermarket, shops or a servo due to her infectious personality.” Adding “I’ve never met someone who cares so much for family, friends and animals, and this proves that she has a heart of gold. I’m just thankful that she also has heart space to care for me, I’m one lucky bloke!”

Chic Beach Wedding Colour Palettes

by | Bride, Wedding Inspiration


With the warmer weather, comes the celebration of weddings by the sea. Today we’ve created six chic beach wedding colour palettes to inspire your own walk in the sand.

Whether your beachside celebration is all about the citrus brights, or you prefer a more classic colour palette of greens and taupes, the sea makes the most beautiful backdrop – for colour, for metallic for neutral.

We’re inspired by these combinations of citrus oranges with bright pinks, to chic slate blue and apricot and even the drama of black and gold.
