Sunday R&R – Read and Recap

Anyone who has lived or worked in France knows that a Sunday in France is completely different to the UK, US or Australia.  It is not an overflow day to cram in your weekly shopping or race around trying to find that last minute Birthday present.  Most shops don’t open and it is truly a day for some R&R.  Now this is starting to change slightly in certain areas, but from today I thought that I would start our own Sunday R&R tradition on French Wedding Style – read and recap!

As the number of posts that I publish every week has started to increase and there are so many delightful features, this is a visual read and recap, plus a  sneaky peak at what is coming up this week.

Monday started with a peak behind the doors of the Ritz Paris.
