Lake Wakatipu! What an idyllic backdrop for your wedding photography!
Sweetie, I told you I’ll fix it. There’s no need to keep reminding me every six months!
Happy 1st Anniversary! Can’t believe it’s been a year 🙂
OMG you have to watch this for wedding theme inspiration!
I cannot believe I haven’t seen this before. Remember Tori Spelling, plastic surgery disaster, ex 90210 washed up actress? Turns out she’s a very good wedding planner!
Tune into Bravo to watch about 6 seasons worth!
CONGRATULATIONS! WOW! Talk about a spectacular setting for a marriage proposal! #grandcanyonproposal #marriageproposal
My beautiful stepsister and her lovely boyfriend got engaged on holiday with a cunning surprise proposal! Good planning Johnathan!
And send your partner some hints to visit @WickenJewellery for an Engagement Ring! I was walking from Ponsonby Central across the road at the bollard crossing thingey outside SPQR and did a little Tinkerbell flutter when I found myself standing in front of the magical @WickenJewellery, a new store which harnesses the ancient symbols and knowledge of wicca, combined with protective and positive crystals.
All jewels are prettily displayed with the meanings behind them and the lovely Kim will help you choose a handcrafted piece which reflects your inner goddess and/or bring you the energy you need. The Swarovski pink topaz ring, Love Nest, pictured will bring you good fortune in love. It enhances the heart chakra and is known to bring genuine love. The vibration of love it engenders is very powerful and the longer the stone is in your aura the ore chance it has to do its work! #wickenjewellery
You are going to LOVE this! A few of my couples have had this for their aisle walk and it’s so touching it gives me a lump in my throat – but I had to get the tissues out for this brides grand entrance…
Have you seen this new show?? It’s playing on Bravo now!
Have you ever wondered what happened to your first love??
When I posted that cute love story about the young American couple recently, it reminded me I hadn’t yet posted my step-Uncle Peter’s love story! Peter is head over heels and talks about his girlfriend Andrea at every opportunity! He was so excited to show us the article written up in the local ‘Our Enterprise’ a magazine published by idea (Intellectual Disability Empowerment in Action). Here is Peter and Andrea’s gorgeous Love Story (I especially love the bit about the engagement rings)…
Peter met Andrea 16 years ago at the Disco night at Takapuna Hall He attended this event once a month at that time. So, Peter has been in contact with Andrea since then. Although they live separately, they keep regular contacts via phone calls and take turns in making calls. Peter calls Andrea every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday; while Andrea calls Peter every Monday, Wednesday and Friday. Once a fortnight they will take a turn making a call on Sunday night with staff’s help to remind them whose turn.
Peter explained that he has changed for Andrea now. He is no longer being ‘the boss’ and he wants Andrea to become one instead to make Andrea happy. He also mentioned that he wants to be nice and kind to Andrea. Peter proudly recalled that he has given 8 engagement rings to Andrea.
As part of their regular contacts, Peter will have dinner at Lauderdale with Andrea once a month. He will be dropped off by staff at 3pm and be picked up at 7pm. Peter said the he would be very happy if Andrea can come for dinner at his place one day and say hello to all his housemates.
Story written for Peter by Vania Hermanto
Remember 80s cult teen cult classic Pretty in Pink?? It starred Molly Ringwald as Andie (who these days plays a very creepy looking mother to Archie in Riverdale), and Andrew McCarthy as Blane (whatever happened to him) as well as Jon Cryer (from Two and a half Men) as Duckie.
It was on telly the other night and I couldn’t resist watching the start of it. Of course being a teen movie its set in a high school and there was this scene where Andie is using the school library computer and she gets a random flirty message from an anonymous txter – who predictably turns out to be Blane.
What I love about this is that although technology has come a very long way in 30 years (look at the size of that machine!) – online dating started all the way back then and its still a great tool to meet the love of your life!! In fact, the majority of my couples met online!
