A wedding to remember…
It was a 2 hour drive from Paris into the country for the wedding and reception of David and Margo. It was a much anticipated event and the girls were overly excited to get out there and celebrate one of their best girlfriends wedding. Sitting in a car with 3 babbling french girls driving there was a experience in itself. It amazes me how deep conversation between girls takes away all other senses. Like how to drive! I swear I saved 4 lives 10 times on the way there.
After arriving we settled into a very quaint little farmhouse, all four in the same room, to get ready for the wedding in a incredible little, out of the way church in the little town of …. The church was shirted by a graveyard many centuries old, with time ravished headstones reading back past the 16th century. Inside the stain glass windows bent the coloured light onto the faces of 200 people packing the oak pews. The sounds of a choir resounded of the walls as Margo walked down the aisle. It was a incredible ambience as her brother, the priest, gave her to be married!
The reception was 5 minutes away in the family country home of Margo. Started in the 70’s, just a shack on some land, its now a stunning retreat, surrounded by forests with a large and tree-laden lake, including a row boat. Thats down through a superbly keep outdoor garden. The aperitif was oysters, an array of hams, cheeses, foie gras and of coarse copious amounts of champagne. As the sunset behind the trees we moved to the reception and danced into the night… and morning. I think I got to bed at 5 and it was still rocking!
It was a incredible wedding and one I won’t forget! Thanks to David and Margo and best of luck into your future!
