I just wonder who would spend 6.3 million yen (about NZD100, 000.00!!!!) on a robot celebrant. Well, bride Satoko Inoue, 36, works for Kokoro Co. and groom Tomohiro Shibata, 42, is a professor of robotics so I think they may have been lent her.

“If you want to attend the wedding, please clear this game”

Unusual invitations sent by a German couple

"I want to send out invitations something that the memorable!" gamer couple thought, came up with a swirl of ideas and thought is...

The Germany gamer couple Darina and Niko are planning their wedding and struggle idea of invitations and something that they want to remember for the participants.
"We can send invitation made by the game!!”
So, couple came up with the idea of "a game that included the original invitation” you cannot get details of their wedding without clearing the game.
As you might “unforgettable invitation”!

The game/invitation is "Super Mario" style action game. Players choose from Nico or Darina and help other character kidnapped by the bad gorilla.

The title is "Darina & Niko's Incredible Adventure ". You can listen to their great harmony at the end.

CD is also recorded the game's soundtrack and the NG of the collection.
The game has been released to the public, and is available for download here.

I'd like to receive this unique invitation but I was just wondering if I could not clear the game, would I still be invited to the wedding????

Four leaf clover


Have you been looking for a four leaf clover?

The clover is a symbol for luck, because only you can find 1 of 100,000 chances in nature.  When I was child I gave up looking for the lucky clover and started to make hair wreaths instead.

The clover season starts early November to early March, so if you have your wedding out of season you can still use these items for table decorations, favours, etc.

The meaning of each four leaf clover is faith, hope, lover and luck, which together means

If you break up the word "clover"....
"c", "love" and "r"
c for create, r for ring and lover is love.

Therefore it will  "Create the love ring"

Would you like to have clover theme wedding?

*Old tradition made new*


Make your special day, something to remember with this tradition of pulling with sterling silver charms which has special meaning. 
The custom of wedding cake pulling dates back to the Victorian era in England, when the bride hid sterling silver charms under the wedding cake.

The bride would have each of her bridesmaids and flower girls (as well as other important women in her life) pull a charm from the cake before cake-cutting ceremony.

Each sterling silver charm has a special meaning that brings good fortune or luck.  So this is a lovely way for your wedding guests to share the fun. 

If you prefer this fun ceremony, you can use at your bridal     shower or hen's or hen's party to share with your closest friends and family.

Joy at Garden


Are you planning a garden wedding ceremony/reception?

A garden wedding can be romantic, elegant, cheerful and lots of fun.  Gardens are ideal for celebrating your special day, no matter the time of year and provide a beautiful backdrop.

There is variety of locations you could hold your wedding, as well as Public park, historic buildings, country Bed & Breakfasts and your own backyard or that of friends/relatives.

One of my favourite garden is here in Hamilton.  There are many different theme gardens, English, Chinese, Japanese, American, India, Italian etc
Hamilton Gardens is only five minutes from where I live.  So I sometimes go there for a short work, picnic and many events all year round. 

Find out if any other events are being held there on your wedding day.  Otherwise your guests can't find a car park or you could miss out of a photo opportunity by crowded people.

When I visit there, sometimes I see the weddings held at the gardens and I am going to Hamilton Gardens for a wedding next month, so I am looking forward to it and I would like to share with you soon.

Lucky Horseshoe


Horseshoe is one of the good luck charms at wedding ceremony.

Why brides carry horseshoe is not clear.  It is believed to stem from St Dunstan who became Archbishop of Canterbury in 959. 

He was a former blacksmith managed to outwit the devil.  The devil was thought to have asked Dunstan to shoe his hoof. 

Dunstan had realised his customer was the devil and nailed the shoe on as painfully as he could. 
Dunstan only agreed to remove the shoe and release the devil after he promised never to enter a place where a horseshoe as hung over the door. 

Hence the term "Lucky Horseshoe".

The horseshoe is also thought to help with fertility and be sure to hold the shoe up the correct way (like a U rather than an N!) or all the luck is supposed to fall out. 

It's usually the children at the wedding that giving a bride horseshoe as she leaves the wedding ceremony venue.

I have seen a horseshoe selling in the upside down position!  Make sure when purchasing it is the correct way otherwise BAD LUCK!!!

Horseshoes were originally made from iron, but nowadays brides carry it which is made of satin and variety of decorations.

I find different shapes as hearts, slippers and umbrellas are on the web site.  But I couldn't find the traditional meaning of these items for weddings.

Anyone interested to have iron horseshoe or other shapes instead of traditional horseshoe???
