Maria and Jean-Louis wedding

Post by Maria on Wed 20 Jun 2018 - 11:29

here we go then.... (official photos will be a few weeks yet, these are friend and family ones)
on the way to the mairie with my brother


he walks me down the 'aisle' (good job we did a decent job on that disabled ramp last year... a kind neighbour had sprinkled it with rose petals)




this is the outside edge of the ramp, decorated by another two friends - people were so good to me


oops it says i cant do anymore on this post, will start a new one.

The one with your friend trying to beat you down the steps really shows how pretty your dress is.

my brother did a fantastic job as MC and he is just about to open the marquee here


Nougat, who was following the carriage, and by a miracle managed to stay behind it. Apart from trying to kick the photographer and Dan who had the dog, she was good (ish) This is Utes daughter Lucie on her, who did a fab job of managing things


here we are at the table

Fantastic 'photos, Maria, especially the one where we can see your dress properly - it's absolutely lovely, just perfect. Thanks for putting them up here.

They're terrific.
I thought Mark was joking when he was talking about the dance (as a late guest, I hadn't had the email), then someone else mentioned it, so I just joined in anyway, you can see me at the back there, doing totally the wrong thing LOL
Very nice ones of Tim, I think I put a nice one of Patty and Mick up. She did indeed look super and a great example of how may I say it, an older lady can look good, fashionable without a hint of mutton.

The flowers were beautiful and plenty of them, in your hair Maria were the most exquisite tiny roses, they don't show up so well in photos but they were lovely.
Makes me smile looking at all these and remembering how lovely it was.

Thank you, yes i have got some of the tiny roses pressing, along with some from my bouquet but not sure its going to work as i left it a bit late to do

And yes, mum came out looking beautiful and said 'do you think its too young for me ' and tim and i assured her we could soon find her something that made her look 80 if she wanted.... that did the trick but i will show her you comments... do you think you could email me the photo with mick?

The pic is in my 'En Vacances' thread, but I can email it Maria. I have sent it to Patty.

Re the flashmob (which the DJ didn't quite get was a surprise and announced it); It was lovely how someone said; 'Well Maria loves organising everyone and we have organised this and she knows nothing about it.' They were really enjoying the subterfuge.

i had a lovely email from Daniel yesterday thanking me for my feedback.

Im guessing it was lucie who organised it. But there would have been a complucation because she would have had to ask the band to do it and if they didnt know in advance...... antway it worked and we loved it.

Ute thinks i try to control everything (qui, moi?) So i get it was her that said that! No matter, we loved it, as i said
