Saison des mariages



Of course, it's full wedding season, as seen yesterday at the town hall and near the palace.

Vus ici à l'hôtel de ville et près du château.

Hi, Ciel. I like the way you framed the first phot between those two tall columnar evergreen trees. This should be the time for weddings around here, too. I will go out looking . . .

Great composition in that first picture!

I always used to tell the groom that the only man who knows true happiness is a married man. (Pause) Of course, then it's too late! Heh, heh.

Oh, stop, I'm just kidding. After 54 years of marriage I'm entitled!

What a beautiful scene! I would bet that there are many brides envious of this Versailles setting!

Tis the season for brides and weddings!

Bises,

Fun to get a sneek peek into that wedding! It looks like a fancy event!

Bob Crowe said...

Who had the great idea to have the bride and groom walk together through the door that says égalité?

Kaori said...

I LOVE weddings! I was just at one yesterday. Love your first photo with everyone lined up :D

On dirait des Gadzarts!!(elèves des Arts et Métiers)

A Bamako c'est dimanche le jour de mariage et à Versailles sans doute c'est plus chic tous les jours sauf le samedi.
Ne perds pas de vue non plus le 11.11.11 ; c'est plus facile de programmer de se marier que de naître ce jour là...

Les Quat'z'Arts ont des tenues plus originales dessinées par leurs soins

Lovely sunny day for a "marriage"!
Hugs

Looks like lucky couple had a lovely day!

I like the use of nature as a frame in the first shot. It's almost paparazzi-like ;-)

Thérèse said...

Tu as raison... "les croix de bois" c'est ce que tu recommanderais comme lecture? Je ne connais que peu de détails sur Dorgelès...

What a perfectly romantic setting for a marriage. I bet the bride was gorgeous.

Looks like an elegant church for a wedding.

It is, in fact, the town hall as stated in the caption.

VP said...

The same here, we got several quite sumptuous ones in Rome, you can imagine those churches...

bfarr said...

Beautiful shot, Ciel.

Magpie said...

Well it does look like the perfect weather for weddings.

Doug Hickok said...

I can only image the beauty of such lavish weddings! The church settings alone must be awesome.

Olivier said...

en effet la belle saison des mariages s'ouvrent et offrent de superbes photos (j'en ai vu de bien beaux dans Central Park). Retour de NYC (toujours aussi belle et prenante) avec comme d'habitude un gros coup de blues ;)
