The Sunday R&R

How do I start my weekly round up post in the wake of everything that has happened in Paris on Friday?  With utter heart break for all of those lost and injured in the terrible events of the week, but I refuse to let the terrorists win.

There was no post yesterday as a mark of respect –  but  at FWS we believe in love and in celebrating life.  Love is central to everything we do here, so we stand strong against these dark people and continue to celebrate all that is wonderful about weddings in France and the joy that French weddings bring.

I invite you to take a minutes silence as you think of those taken and honour them by celebrating life.

So in case you’ve missed anything this week catch up on The Sunday R&R…

We started the week with an intimate wedding in Provence with photography by Olivia Marocco – see full wedding here

  • Wow! Just stumbled on this blog and I’m so glad I did. The photography is excellent and I love the soft look and treatments in the photos. It all looks like it was shot on film.
