I don’t speak French but that wasn’t a barrier. In fact, it made my experience authentic and lead to many funny moments, such as when Florent introduced Xavier to me as his step-brother, when he meant brother-in-law. Another was when Xavier told me that he was in London a few years ago for the “Nothing Here Carnival” (Notting Hill carnival).
We spent an entire weekend together. We ate together, laughed together and set up the venue for the wedding together.
There was never a single moment when I felt out of place.
Isa et Flo, merci beaucoup! Thank you for trusting me to be your wedding photographer. Thank you for introducing me to your family and friends. Thank you for giving me the opportunity to discover Paris, Saint Brieuc, Lamballe, Paimpol and MACAROONS!!!
Thank you for being my friend; to think the first time we ever met was the day before your wedding is mind blowing. The evening we spent watching fireworks under the Eiffel Tower on my second visit to Paris remains one of my favourite experiences to date.
Drop me a line whenever your in London, let’s hang out again!
