photo by kevin n murphy A True Love Story:
The other night in the pub our friend Sandrine mentioned she is going to France to attend the wedding of her parents. Right! Her parents! They have been together for 30 years, but have never tied the knot!. Sandrine has kindly shared with us all the details so that i can share it with you all!
So this cute little love story goes like this...Jaqueline, 30 meets Jean-Marc, 24 (toy boy) at a fancy dress party in the south of France in 1979. Jean Marc was an indian, and Jaqueline was dressed as...Charlie Chaplin! 2 years later, Sandrine was born.
And now 30 years later, aged 60, and 54, they have finally decided to tie the knot this coming September. It will be a very discreet civil wedding with 2 official witnesses: Sandrine and her gran, Henriette, who at aged 80 has just returned from a cruise around Russia!! (more on that another time!) Unfortunately all of Sandrines other grand parents have now passed, making this a small but intimate affair.
The cutest part of this story has to be the fact that her Mum, visiting her fathers mother, and future inlaw has, on one knee and all, just asked her Grandma for the hand of her dad!! Isn't this unbelievable? Just proves its definitely never too late for a wedding.
A special thanks to Sandrine for sharing this story! Its real life and real people that inspire me most. Thanks honey!!
