A venue

This is the Mairie, or Town Hall, for the local district where my parents live.
The Mairie

The Mairie

It is a very old, and beautiful, castle with tall windows, a jumble of old roof lines and a smart french tricolore hanging outside.

This morning Graham and I walked up the narrow, spiral stone staircase - rather nervously - and asked the mayor if we could get married here this summer.  He sucked in his cheeks, gave a very gallic shrug, and then said yes, we could.
The Mairie

We are very, very happy.
