Wedding Bells

Wedding BellsI’ve mentioned the wedding I attended in Hamburg a few times over the past week. I had only a vague idea of how I wanted to gift-wrap the wedding present, because I think stuffing money into an envelope is so uncreative.

The couple will be going on honeymoon to New York later this year, so I had a NY picture in mind and wanted to create the gift wrapping around that. And it had to be something that I could easily take on the plane. I left it pretty much last minute because suddenly I felt quite uncreative.

Then I was gifted this little heart made of tiny bells – and I am so not into hearts. I decided to re-gift it for a good cause, found a NY skyline drawing on the internet, bought an IKEA picture frame – the deep kind that’s like a shadowbox – and assembled it all with the money tied butterfly-style around the heart of bells.

Tuesday Tune – Love Is All Around

Tunes - Love Is All AroundLast summer, on a photo tour through the city center, walking towards the opera house I could see from afar that something seemed to be stuck to one of the doors. The left half of the door was hidden behind the coloumn as I walked towards it, so I couldn’t make out right away what it was. The fact that there was a bridal photo shoot taking place on the steps should have given me a pointer…

It seemed natural that seeing a heart, a bride, and a wedding going on would trigger Love Is All Around playing in my head. And BTW I’m hearing the version by Wet Wet Wet from the movie “Four Weddings And A Funeral”. Naturally.
