Em's wedding

samedi, le 8 aout 2009
Em and Francois had a beautiful wedding.

It was held here, in this stunning 12th century church.

Em's mom walked her down the aisle.

Mme and M Quairel said "Oui" and they both smiled despite the thunder and torrential downpour outside!

We then headed for this beautiful garden where the vin d'honneur (a sort of cocktail party/mini-reception) was held after the ceremony. The weather went back to being beautiful... thank goodness!

Em's great idea for thank you cards...

Lilas, Sophie, Em, me, Bette et Laure. A beautiful group of girls, non?

Em et moi, all dressed up and ready to party!

At the gite, enjoying les aperitifs before dinner. Please note that this tasty beet treat matches my dress!

Em models her wedding ring.


Me and my English-speaking table-mates, Ian et Pascal.

Wedding cake sparklers... More like fireworks if you ask me!

The party went on and on, until well after 4 o'clock in the morning. There was so much delicious food, bottle after bottle of wine, and lots of fun and dancing. It was marvellous, and I wouldn't have missed any of it for the world!
