Wedding preparations

Although it is only one week and one day until our wedding, we are not thinking about it or preparing for it yet.  There are far too many other important things going on.

There are cousins to play with.


There are fancy hairstyles to practise.

Practising French plaits

There are my brother and my sister and their families to laugh with and spend long, lazy evenings with.

Cheers & laughter

Mum & Marcus

There are French breakfasts to think of - what sort of jam should we have with our baguettes each morning?  Which patisserie does the best, butteriest croissants?


There is swimming in the river to be done too.

But we are getting closer.  My sister and her husband are on their way back home now, and my brother and his family leave for home this weekend.  Next week, my parents-in-law arrive in France, and THEN we can start thinking about the wedding.


  1. Oh it looks and sounds blissful, except for the swimming part--brrr! And we're already getting excited about the wedding here. We chatted about it at Kew on Monday!

  2. I am so excited for you all. How wonderful to get married in France! Totally unrelated, I took my son to the museum of London on Tuesday on your recommendation from a post last year. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves!

  3. I've been thinking of you. It looks like all is smooth, calm happy and well (if a little chilly!).

    And that french plait takes me back. I was taught to do them by a girl at school called Ferial. But clearly, this old dog is having problems learning new tricks, because I tried a fish tail braid on my niece and failed spectacularly the other week.

  4. he IS a proper lunatic!! good grief, there's no stopping that man where water is involved is there?!!
    Wedding fever here too-we are having a N and G countdown at our place, it's like Will and Kate all over again!x

  5. I'm so excited for you. I can't wish you enough happiness this summer.

  6. Looks like you are all having a really chilled out time. Hope that's still the same as I'm a bit late with my comments. Have a wonderful day and Congratulations to you both xx
