The Sunday R&R

This is our last day from a very sunny Provence and another chance to enjoy the continuing Bastille Day celebrations, following on from the Valbonne celebrations last night.  Amongst the beautiful weather, stunning scenery, a few bottles of wonderful wine there has been strategising, planning and decisions made that I look forward to sharing with you in the months to come.

As usual I digress so back to the Sunday R&R, and on Monday we started the week with a modern pre wedding shoot in Paris, before traditional French wedding and reception at Chateau de Varennes – see the full wedding.
