Matt and Mel's Wedding
Our good friends Matt and Mel, who moved to France at the same time we did, got married today.
The ceremony took place at the Mairie in Le Dorat, in French and English (with the emphasis on 'ish' - most of us understood the French better than the translator's words!). It was a happy service with many light moments, and the culmination of a lengthy beaurocratic process involving many copies of a bewildering array of documents.

I wonder what the Maire was saying to the translator...!
Matt had given Mel miniature sunflowers when he proposed to her in Paris.
Matt's sister and Mel's daughter served as their witnesses.
