En l’honneur du marriage de Karine et Antoine
|Antoine and Karine about to embark on married life|
|The cottage garden with gazebo erected for the canapes|
|Tent prepared and ready to go|
We planned to serve the canapés in the gazebo and the meal was to be served in a long ‘barnum’ (tent to you and me), and after hours of preparations everything was prepared. We even bought and wired in an extra oven in the barn to cook roast potatoes. Our good friends Chris and Julie offered to help and slave away behind the scenes to ensure everything went well.

Anyway, to cut a very long story short the evening was a great success and a very good start to what was to be a very special weekend for all.
On the Saturday morning I delivered half of the 120 bottles of
|I do....in French!|
|Maureen and our son Daniel walk down to the Chateau|
|A chef cooking some of the hot canapes|
|Another table with oysters and other seafoods - and some excellent Sancerre!|
Now we have been to a few weddings in our time but the canapés were something to behold and since there was a never ending supply of Champagne it was indeed a quality start to a very good evening meal and dancing way past midnight.
