Fellas, this one’s for you!

Imagine your girlfriend’s face when she comes home to find a note on the door that reads ‘How do I love thee? Let me count the ways…’ and then follows the rest of your notes until she finds you waiting on one knee!

All you have to do is download, print and trim the tags, handwrite something you love about her on each tag and hang them from helium balloons throughout the house.

And… pop the question!

Ms Gingham says: The simplicity of this is so appealing! Personally I absolutely love surprises so this would have me weak at the knees.

When Simon married Sarah (see more here) , there was nothing about their wedding that wasn’t stylish, hip and super cool.

Simon wore a suit by Route 66.

The couple’s wedding bands were made by a jeweler at Ken Gray Alistor Reid Gallery.

The ensemble started with John Fluevog Shoes. His bride Sarah also wore black shoes of the same brand.

Today’s inspired memory comes from groom Henry (see his wedding to Lauren here).

Henry says, “I feel that the most memorable moment for the whole experience would undoubtedly be seeing Lauren for the first time, as she walked through the archway towards me. I can still see her glowing smile, looking absolutely stunning. She teased me for months about her dress; everything that I imagined was completely outdone. She was beautiful!!”
