Life isn't a business to be managed, it's a mystery to be lived!

Just to update about the weather here in France I need to say that July has been wet! And not the kind where you swet wet. No no no. We are talking thunderstorms and simply non-stop rainy days. Not cold though, still summer.

So it was also raining last Saturday, when <3’s cousin got married. But talk about luck! It rained just before city hall, just before church (yes they did both) and every time we drove from one place to another. That means we had great photos taken outside with sunshine and the welcome drink in the evening was all outside. Basically it rained all day and in the evening and all night it took a break.

My first visit in the city hall of  the town Le Creuset. [lö krözå] 😉

This little girl is one of my favorite – schhhh yes I know you shouldn’t have favorites… But I’m not a parent and she is not mine 😛 This is G’s cousins child E.

This was our day:

1. City Hall – only family + witnesses
2. Church – all family and friends
3. Welcome drink – EVRYONE! Parents friends, neighbors etc etc
4. Dinner and rest of the eve – all family and closest friends – same as 2 I think 🙂

Interesting arrangement I must say. I mean I only have experience from Greek weddings and I’ve just seen and heard about others.
This way you can sort of invite everyone and at the same time not have the biggest wedding ever.

So the drinks and dinner was in Château de Santenay, yes in a castle. *yay*
The roof of this castle is typical in this region, Cote d’Or. As the one my sister and I visited.
It was quite a fancy welcoming. Champagne was flowing, BBQ, froglegs, snails, duck liver but also food that is eating by non-french such as salomon, and other more common food 🙂

I’m becoming more and more French as time goes!
This is not too hard to eat, it’s tasty.
Though me eating a snail!! Yes you heard right, I tried one. One is enough to feel the…texture… *goose bumps*. So the sauce is amazing! Loads of garlic! Simply yummie! Sorry can’t find the picture..

Time to take a seat. Just a tiny information, look at the chairs, love them!

In France it’s not common to have a wedding cake, not a birthday cake either. You can of course and people do! You see the litle cone-shaped thing in front of the groom? That’s what they have here! There is vanilla cream inside this crunchy fried (?) ball. I still prefer cake, but this is nice too!

And here is the “Broom Car” that arrives last sweeping away after everyone else. Another tradition here in France. 🙂

Here are some photos from the day after, when we returned for a brunch to the castle and left overs from the day before.

See those two trees? See that one of them is cracked open? Have a look further down and you’ll see what it looks like from the inside 😉
