As suspected, I was too preoccupied with old friends, amazing food and copious amounts of French wine to put much effort into photographing my weekend on the French/Swiss border.
A few details to contextualise the few photos below- We stayed in Gex(France) where there was a lovely Saturday morning market; the ceremony was in a pretty village church in Gingins (Switzerland) and the reception was held in a cosy but grand auberge in Echenevex (France) overlooking Mont Blanc.
From the 7 old friends I got to catch up with to the 7 course meal to the 7km walk back to our accommodation at 5am in dainty heels, it was all absolutely wonderful. 🙂
And then home…
Looks and sounds like a wonderful weekend.
Your maybe didn’t take many photos Wendy, but they were superb and gave us a lovely taste of the area 🙂
What gorgeous photos! And I love the final shot! Swoonworthy pictures that make the imagination run wild. I can only imagine how delightful it was!
Jealous much? Very….
looks beautiful – glad you were able to take some of your lovely photos – but even gladder you didn’t take so many as to distract yourself from catching up with friends – sounds a great trip
what a lovely little snap shot of france/switzerland, i can almost smell it ~ thanks for the lovely photos ~ just shows: a few pictures can really capture the flavour of a whole area and event
I’m starting to think you might be the luckiest person in the world. How beautiful!!!
Gorgeous photos as usual Wendy. I want to go back to France NOW! Even though I’ve been twice in the last few weeks…
beeeauuutiful photos, but I’m worried about your 7k walk in dainty heels ….
7 k in heels? Hardcore!
lovely photos, the clouds were my favourite.
Sylvie – It really was. 🙂
Jacqueline – Thank you! Glad you liked them.
Kirsten – Returned home in a dreamlike state. The clouds seemed to reflect that.
Jane – Was too!
Em – 🙂 It was very special.
Johanna – Yeah, I’m glad about that too. There have been points in the last few years (since starting this blog) that I’ve felt overly aware of photo-moments. Not this time. I was too caught up in the moment.
Pippa – Thank you! That’s exactly what I hoped when I posted these.
Sara – I really do think I am sometimes. Perhaps I’ll be a slug in my next life to even it all out.
Helen – Twice? Now that’s just greedy… 😉
Chrissie – Had just enough wine to dull the pain but not so much that I was sleepy. I.e. the perfect amount. 🙂
Fran – As I said to Chrissie above, my feet were fine that night. The next day, however…
P.K. – I’m really scared of flying. Views like that help.
