Wedding Party (Belated)

This is somewhat late in coming but better late than never...

When we came back to France after our Wedding in September we held a small "get-together" for thirty plus friends and neighbours. Unfortunately the warm temperatures of the previous (and subsequent!) days let us down a little and we had to be indoors for the most part.

Here are a few photos of the day, mainly courtesy of Gaynor and Tim, as we were too busy enjoying ourselves!

We were lucky enough to have Jean to make us a replica wedding cake. Needless to say, it was delicious (all Jean's baking is delicious!)

It seemed a shame to cut it but we did....our lovely neighbours were there waiting for me to get some plates then they could have a slice!

There were gifts, which Thimeo hoped might be belated 3rd birthday presents for him..

There was food and wine and a very full kitchen!

Something got the thumbs up from Thimeo!

And then time out on the swing...

I had a real treat... giving seven week old Maxence his bottle...

And then it was time to go home.... and for one little boy that meant leaving the swing for today..

As we said at the beginning, better late than never... and this gives us the chance to say "thankyou" once again, to everyone, near and far, who sent us good wishes, cards and presents. We are a very lucky couple to have such a wonderful set of friends and such brilliant neighbours here in Braye!

Same here!
We had a lovely time and I was thrilled to make a "wedding cake" for such a special couple.

A further affirmation that it was absolutely delightful to celebrate your happiness with friends. You made it such a relaxed affair!
