Smarty Pants is a big rugby fan, and because he’s part Irish he supports the Ireland national team.
I’m a fan of big burly men, and because the Ireland national team has lots of big burly men I’m a fan of them, too.
So on our wedding day, our best man (Smarty Pants’ brother) managed to get us a card signed by several of Ireland’s players, including the legendary Brian O’Driscoll.
We have many photos of me jumping up and down in my wedding dress.
He somehow got four All Blacks (the New Zealand national team) to pretend they were the bride’s ex-boyfriends and to wish the couple luck on video.
This is priceless – especially Sonny Bill Williams (on the exercise bike), who’s got “romance hero” written all over him.
Too bad the hero of my rugby romance novel is English, not Kiwi. That’s a freaking adorable accent.
What’s the best best-man gift or trick you’ve ever seen?
