A hot summer's day in Amsterdam. An historic house by the canal. Balloons, cocktail dresses, champagne, smiles and the click-click-clicking of cameras. The beaming couple arrive on bikes, sunflowers attached to their handlebars. 'Yes, I'll marry you, you're the love of my life!' Applause, hugs, kisses, a luscious six-tiered cake with summer berries.
And... a personalized Paperfection gift book, hand-painted with the Trinité font and bound Coptic style. I hope I succeeded in making it more of a guy book than a girly journal by leaving out beads and frills and keeping it simple.
The wine, Luscinia Canta, by the way, is a blend of merlot and cabernet sauvignon. It was made with loving care too, by my own sweetheart, in the Catalan Pyrenees.
