Gelato – it’s what dreams are made of. And this NSW gelato cart is making dreams come true by serving unique, homemade flavours to weddings guests across NSW. It’s not your traditional wedding dessert – but it’s way better.
Tell us a bit about what you do?
We make damn good gelato! We’re a premium artisan gelato producer based on the NSW Central Coast. Our gelato and sorbet is all-natural, made using seasonal ingredients from our kitchen garden. You’ll find us in shops, at markets and festivals and of course, weddings. We love weddings!
What is the main advantage for couples who work with you?
All you can eat gelato?! For couples planning their wedding, we offer a very easy and uncomplicated, yet personalised service. We cater to all types of weddings and all gelato tastes with our jersey cow’s milk gelato, goat’s milk gelato and vegan sorbets.
Whether couples go for our gelato cart or gelato tricycle, we offer a really unique and fun wedding experience and create a dessert that is second to none. We’ve lost count of the number of times people have told us Mr Goaty is the best gelato they’ve ever tasted. That’s what it’s all about for us, good food made with love for a good time.
Can you share some of the things that go on behind the scenes?
We get invited to a lot of weddings these days, sometimes three in one day! Things can get pretty busy behind the scenes – but you’d never know it when we show up on the day with our freshly pressed aprons and perfectly chilled gelato. We’re determined to make each and every batch of gelato we churn as fresh and amazing as it can be so we make it all the day before each wedding. This can mean some late nights in the kitchen churning (aided by 90s house Spotify playlists and the occasional shot of tequila…).
Do you think there are any preconceptions about the wedding industry?
Some people might assume the industry is overpriced and a bit same same, but I think that’s changing. All the amazing venues and vendors we work alongside are passionate creatives who work extremely hard.
For our part, we offer a premium and bespoke wedding service for very reasonable prices. We love what we do and the appreciation and delight we see from couples and their guests is worth more than anything.
What are some of the main questions couples ask you? And what are the answers
For most couples it’s all about flavours. We’ve come across a few brides and grooms who probably care more about which gelato flavours they serve at the wedding than what their dress or suit looks like, which is awesome.
Our wedding gift to every couple is a bespoke flavour created just for them – it might be based on their favourite food or cocktail, a holiday they’ve been on, or anything else that’s meaningful or fun for the couple. We’ve had some pretty out there flavour requests which we love concocting such as stilton cheese and red wine, banana bread and coffee, burnt pineapple margarita. We’re yet to say no to anything flavour-wise.
Can you describe what sets your business apart?
The product and the service. We’re not the only gelato vendors but ours is hands down the best you’ll try, made with the highest quality natural ingredients. We like to push the boundaries with our unique garden to gelato flavours and our vintage truck is no pink Mr Whippy.
We’re fortunate to have a great team of designers and artists behind the look and feel of Mr Goaty. Everything from our gelato, to our compostable cups and spoons, recycled wooden pallet servers, and vintage van and tricycle reflects our sustainable and all-natural ethos.
What’s your next predicted wedding trend?
We now do fresh hot donuts from our gelato cart and they’re proving extremely popular! So this year we’re offering donut walls with all our wedding packages. Cakes are great, but who doesn’t want gelato and donuts at their wedding?
