We left the house just in time to join the back of the convoy of vehicles making their way to the church at Rilly sur Vienne..
There must have been 30 to 40 cars in the convoy, lead by five or six motorbikes, one of which was ridden by the groom! Working perfectly together, the bikers stopped the traffic at each junction as we made the 20km journey.
The church ceremony was informal and very relaxed and then it was out into the glorious sunshine for photos and the throwing of rice and paper hearts, packaged in gift bags and given out to us on arrival, by the bride's friends.
Our convoy then made the return trip, horns blaring, (the groom still on his bike!) and on to Les Ducs de Richelieu for the Vin d'honneur. We left after this as the meal later was for family and close friends.
We were very pleased to be invited to share such a truly happy and relaxed celebration.
All our love to Pamela and Maximilien for a long and happy marriage..
