What do Gadget Geeks buy with their wedding gift money? Well, sofas first, but with the leftovers they buy gadgets! We have wanted something to play music on in the living room for a while now as my Marantz amp is getting old and the speakers are just too big for the space. So, after testing nearly every decent iPod dock out there, there was a clear winner… The Beatbox by Dr Dre. It sounds amazing. The bass is truly earth shattering for a non-hifi system. Chillin’ to the Prodigy whilst I write this post. It will do nicely. Sexola to look at too…
If you need an iPod dock, this is the current (sub £500) king.
One week after the wedding we held a party to further the celebrations… It was the perfect excuse for Nic to wear her dress again and for me to get suited and booted… Not forgetting of course, another chance to wear a carrot. It was a cracking night and we were so pleased with the turnout! A MASSIVE thanks for all the donations to our wishing well – thank you cards are in progress – we humbly apologise for the delay…
We had loads of positive feedback (also about the all-Vegan buffet provided by The Hutch - big thanks to Nick and Andrew for the amazing food!), so we reckon most people had a good time and you can’t ask for more than that. The cookies went down well – big thanks to Beanos for those and the cake… We ate almost all of that between the two of us. Naughty, but ever so nice. Anyway, here is a snapshot of the festivities.
One of the ways we thought it might be cool to keep the children amused was to hold a photo treasure hunt. Here are the participants’ efforts in alphabetical order. The list of photographs to capture was as follows:
LADY IN A BIG DRESS – MAN WITH A CARROT ON HIS JACKET – MAN DANCING WEARING AN ORANGE TIE – SOMEONE ELSE TAKING A PHOTO – SOMEONE PULLING A FUNNY FACE – PEOPLE KISSING – SOMEONE EATING – PEOPLE DANCING – PEOPLE TALKING – SOMETHING MADE FROM PLAY-DOH – FOOD ON THE TABLE – BALLOONS
Despite the dodgy performance of the flash on the disposable cameras, there were some funky photos produced!
The winner would be the photographer that successfully captured the most photos on the list above and is announced at the bottom of this post…
On 10/11/12 we got married! A small, intimate ceremony in Canterbury was followed by lunch at The Hutch for an all-Vegan meal… then back home to chill for a while before shopping for bread and Vitalite. It was a great day and my wife looked amazing. And yes, that is a real carrot.

Very sad to hear of the news of the passing of Storm. I only met him once but he was a cheeky, funny and friendly little fella. Storm spent the last two years of his life living with lots of animal friends at the FRIEND Animal Sanctuary in Kent. Rest In Peace x
