And they said "I do"...!
Last week, we had the pleasure of revisiting beautiful France, and this time for a special occasion indeed. A lovely young woman and a fabulous young man were going to "tie the knot" in a setting so stunning, the word breath-taking seems a feeble adjective to do it justice...
I did not attend the wedding personally, but joined the joyous crowd the following day, as the celebrations continued... (hence the slightly bent signs after the thunderstorms during the night).
I have been to this gorgeous home at the foothill of the Pyrenees before, but never has it looked more stunning than it did last weekend, so beautifully decorated for the special event and with the air scented not only with rose petals and lavender, but with so much love and happiness that it nearly made me tipsy.

There, next to the house and wrapped in flowers, bunting and romance,
lies the old barn, and what better place to ....
...say "I do" than on the second floor with this view?!
The trees were filled with (- I believe - ) sun powered lights, and I can only imagine the magical atmosphere that must have reigned here at night...
If only walls and doors could speak... what stories would they share?
(As mentioned before, please click on the horizontal images to see the whole image.)
A large marquee hosted the dinner...
... and even the day after, the laughter, the speeches, the music and the tears of joy,
could still be heard as faint whispers inside the deserted party tent...
As the clearing up of the party tent began, the flowers having adorned each table in the marquee,
were gathered on the tables by the pool. (No, the table is not levitating!)
Fluffy clouds of gyp hugging roses that looked good enough to eat...!
Thank you, B and S, for letting me share some of the decorations on your special day -
I wish you all the best for a wonderful life as husband and wife!
Ps, Thank you so much for all of your kind comments and emails, and hello all new readers!
