This is totally sad so you’ll have to forgive me. Also, it’s 6:30am and I’ve been awake for 3 hours. I don’t know why and maybe my mind is going a bit haywire but I just came up with this ridiculous idea for a blog post so I’m going to run with it.
I was watching
‘Don’t Tell the Bride’ with Gareth the other day (for those of you who aren’t in the UK, it’s a TV programme where basically the groom plans the whole wedding – he picks and organises literally everything – the venue, the dress, the flowers, the invitations, the theme – it’s brilliant!)
I bet lots of couples do this as they watch this show, but Gareth & I got chatting about what he’d do if he had to plan our wedding. Now I’ve either subliminally trained him well or he’s been paying close attention to the blog and just not telling me but OMG his ideas were quite frankly awesome. As soon as he said “short vintage dress from
Fur Coat No Knickers (yes he named the shop!), mismatched colours, a kind of summer meadow theme” I was sold! So much in fact that I totally want to marry him all over again and have him plan the whole thing.
Anyway…I thought I’d make a little montage of his vision. Can I just make it clear that I am aware, as someone who got married 2 and half years ago, how incredibly sad this is but I kinda wanted to share it all with you. Happy Sunday Lovin’ people!

How do you think your other half would plan your wedding if you let him? Why not send me your groom’s ideas!?

A Sunday Kind of Love: Airstream Photo Booth by The Photo Emporium
October 7, 2012
I was proper thrilled when they guys at The Photo Emporium offered to lend us their - wait for it - airstream photo booth (!!!!) for the last Photography Farm. Anyone that knows me knows that I am a serious photo booth junkie and the fact that it was inside an actual airstream made me even more excited! In fact we basically planned the whole damn shoot around it.
A Sunday Kind of Love: I’m Dreaming of a Teal Christmas…
December 9, 2012
There are Christmas gift guides a-plenty around the interwebz at this time of year. But that hasn't stopped me getting in on the action! We're planning on decorating our living room a tealy greeny colour (once we can finally agree on some wallpaper - seriously, this is testing our relationship!) so needless to say I'm having a moment with it all...
A Sunday Kind of Love: Hanging Out with The Darlings & The Lasertrons in NYC!
May 6, 2012
The last 3 days have been a whirlwind of excitement and adventure as Gareth & I have meandered around New York City with our friends The Darlings and The Lasertrons...wow our surname is so boring! We've been a right motley crue of chaos with late night pizza dates, neon pedicures, being papped in Tompkins square, flower crowns, florescent skirt purchases, passing out on sofas (yeah...that was me) and shopping til we dropped (sorry Gareth!)
A Sunday Kind of Love: Fuji Instax Instant Cameras
May 27, 2012
I've had my Instax camera for a few years, but recently I've fallen head over heels in love with it again! From Omaha to LA and from Vegas to New York, my trusty Instax has traveled with me to document my friends and frolics along the way.
A Sunday Kind of Love: Rooftop Dance Parties, Brooklyn Bridge Paparazzi & Extreme Cinemaing
May 13, 2012
After the aceness of last week I wasn't sure my New York adventure could get any better...oh how wrong I was! On Monday we waved goodbye to The Lasertron's (boohoo) and Gala & I then basically spent the whole week distracting each other. I'd love to move here one day, but if I did I fear neither of us would ever get any work done! We had too much fun doing things like this...
A Sunday Kind of Love: Emotional Brilliance with LUSH
July 22, 2012
Ever since I blogged that shocking video that LUSH put together to raise awareness of animal testing in the cosmetics industry, I haven't been able to get it out of my mind. Every morning I've been worrying whether the things I'm putting on my face have somehow played a part in keeping this awful practice the norm. So you can imagine my elation when I found out LUSH were bringing out a make up range! It launched worldwide yesterday and I was up bright and early to head into town to get some first hand experience of it. "You're mad", Gareth said, "going into town on a Saturday. It will be mental", "It will be worth braving the crowds for..." I responded, "I'm doing my bit for the bunnies."
A Sunday Kind of Love: Pom Pom Factory
Beinta á Torkilsheyggi
February 10, 2013
I don't know if you've heard, but these little colourful balls of joy have been getting a slightly bad rep of late. Brides love them, bloggers love them, but some wedding suppliers are (so I've been told) a little over them. We've all seen them styled in the same old same old way over and over so I can see their point. It can be slightly tiresome.
A Sunday Kind of Love: BHLDN on Sale!
July 8, 2012
So I tweeted & facebooked about this as soon as I saw it on Friday (I was in the middle of writing up a wedding that's going up tomorrow, and the bride was in a BHLDN dress so I popped by the website to link to it and BAM! OMG "SAAAALE SAAAAAAAAAAAAAALE!" I squealed).
So yes, I already shared this via my social media but I couldn't resist adding it to the blog today too. If this isn't worth A Sunday Kind of Lovin' I quite frankly don't know what is.
