The Sunday R&R

Good Morning Trulovers, I say sheepishly after a wonderful evening last night with friends, good food cooked by Mr Trulove and there may have been one or two bottles of wine and bubbles involved! My new favourite hangover delicate head cure, is Peppermint tea brewed with thyme leaves and then time I think for a brisk walk to freshen the mind.

But before I head out, time to recapin The Sunday R&R on another wonderful week on French Wedding Style that started on Monday as we put the winter behind us with a sun-drenched wedding in the Provence countryside, a stunning venue and a dreamy bridal dress – read full wedding here.
