The Sunday R&R

Good Morning, good morning! For those readers currently in the UK like I am, this Sunday is part way through a bank holiday weekend, which always feels wonderful! Fingers crossed the sun stays shining today as I have a family lunch and the cutest summer outfit that is screaming to be let out of the wardrobe.

The time seems to go so quickly and can’t believe it is time for another Sunday R&R.  On Monday we started with a wedding in the gardens of Marie Antoinette at the Palace of Versailles.  Planning their wedding from Canada, Jennifer and James got married in an iconic location, the bride wearing Vintage Valentino wedding dress and the groom wearing Armani.  Read full real wedding with photography by WeddingLight.
