What to do when it's the nearly the end of September and it's nigh on 27 degrees at Le Moulin? Why, put on your bikini and sunbathe of course!! 
 
Sunny thoughts 
 
Lying in the sun outside my gite and I'm still revelling in the success that was our very first Salon du Mariage (click here for the video); it was a great afternoon and I got to meet a few of my neighbours that I hadn't yet had the pleasure of meeting - how cool is that? 
 
We had 3 'brides' who thoroughly enjoyed themselves, strutting their stuff down our red carpet catwalk. Lamberts, our wedding dress supplier, did us proud with a selection of utterly gorgeous gowns and, along with the talents of Sandrine Bancroft, the hair stylist, and the make-up artistry of Belle-Essentielle, the brides brought a tear to the eye of many a spectator in the room, envisioning their own daughters making the transition to wifedom... 
 
We have already received two potential bookings for the beginning of next year so happy days :0) 
 
Now, where's that sun cream... 
 
Wedding speeches 
 
“Friends, family and fellow guests...” generally all wedding speeches start along the same lines don’t they? I love weddings. I remember as a little girl (is that a guffaw in the crowd? Yeah, I didn’t think so!!) Anyway, where was I.... yes, as a little girl, I always dreamt of having a dress like Cinderella, with a bodice and puffy meringue skirt. and my groom (for groom' read 'gorgeous, rich Prince Charming of course), would saunder in, all debonair and sophisticated à la Paul Nicholas of Just Good Friends.... 
 
Wedding Fayre 
 
Anyway, dreams aside, I’m really excited that we’re doing our very first Wedding Fayre at Le Moulin - Sunday 23 September, 14h00. It’s going to be a great afternoon for all the family to come along, try some of the delicious food on offer, see some of the gorgeous sample dresses, try some of the amazing sparkling wines; it’s going to be wonderful. 
 
I’m planning on being there with all my friends and it’ll be great to see you all.
