End we’re off again. This time for Marion and Pierrick’s little wedding in Paris – and not just anywhere in Paris, but at the famous church of St. Germain-des-Prés if you please! At the town hall in the 6th arrondissement they set the scene by telling you that three (or maybe four – I can’t remember!) of the six presidents of the 5th Republic were married there. OK. Actually, I just took the same photos as usual – but it does make you think, as they say.
Fine weather and pleasant surroundings – smart without being ostentatious, a photo with the Eiffel Tower in the background (because you can’t not!) and another one of the happy couple among the flowers in the gardens of the Senate (actually illegal, which is why there’s no-one else in the photo) all result in a photo sequence with very much an urban chic feeling – and very Parisian into the bargain! In actual fact though, city weddings are fairly rare.Lire la suite
The last wedding of the 2016 season was Marie and Dat’s.
