I had never seen that! a wedding outside of the city hall. Funny and very unic!
After a church service, the civil ceremony seems so sterile, doesn't it?
joy, oh joy. look at his face. and how attentive the guests, though one person seems to have grown a tail.
Wedding photos are always great to show us - keep 'em coming! Congratulations to the newlyweds!
Lovely seeing the guests able to enjoy the civil ceremony, will you be able to snap the religious ceremony Jilly?
The mayor does seem quite jovial and relaxed. What M. Mayor no coat for the occasion? HAV
Ah-- Southern France! Everyone is so relaxed. I can't imagine a similar scene happening in Paris. Lovely shot of the civil ceremony. Veronique (French Girl in Seattle)
A wonderful picture - bride and groom on waiting room chairs. The bust in the background looks like a ghostly witness.
Bob, that is Marianne, the symbol of the Republic and obligatory in all French town halls. Marianne was originally modelled on Brigitte Bardot but over the years other well known French actresses have posed for the sculptor.
Who doesn't love a wedding? Especially in small villages where the chance tourist can't help but witness the festivities. I confess I've lurked around a couple because I like to see what people wear.
Michel looks about as relaxed as he did the night of the African dance!
