MANOIR DE LA FOULQUETIERE
Relaxed, sunny, elegant, fun. Dogs, pigs, giant balloons, Popcorn. Cornish: Rattler, sea shanties, people… The Loire Valley.
That is some combo and just a brief summary of Aimey & Ben’s wedding at Manoir de la Foulquetiere.
Relaxed: As is the case with most weddings in France, they tend to be so because they are spread over more than one single day.
Sunny: From start to finish which is pretty essential when most of your wedding takes place outdoors!
Elegant: Oh so very.
Fun: With a capital F. (I didn’t mention previously the outdoor games and frisbee!)
The dogs: For family dogs, one of which was the ring-bearer.
Pigs: The owner Rosemary has two, Derek & Rodney.
Giant Balloons: There was a casualty after a few hours. The yellow one decided to end it’s own life. Possibly assisted by the sun…
Popcorn: For those utterly tedious moments when the couple sign the book, give your guests a personal box of popcorn!
Cornish Rattler: It’s a cider. It’s strong. It’s a Cornish thing.
Sea Shanties: Every wedding ceremony should have one.
Cornish People: Almost as great as those from Yorkshire and on this particular day, maybe better…
The Loire Valley: and Manoir de la Foulquetiere itself is of course just a perfect place for a wedding.
