Jacqueline et Dave met at a wedding (yes, it apparently can happen !). Jacqueline was a bride’s maid, and so was Dave’s daughter.
Between J and D, word are not necessary : you can feel it : LOVE, truly and caring love, and believe me, their friends feels the same towards them too.
L’Ile à bois
is located in the northern part of Brittany, near Paimpol. It’s not really an island, more of a small private peninsula, with several houses, where the main one can welcome quite a huge amount of people (I havn’t count all the bedrooms : they were too many !), but what’s sure is that the view from L’île à bois
is impressive : you can see all the bay, and it constantly changes during the day, with the weather, but also the tides. Really breathtaking ! (I want to go back there !) 🙂
I arrived there in early morning and saw friends of the bride of groom helping organising the day and life around here : some of them looking after kids, some others helping for decoration, and Dave, the groom, working on decorating the arch for the Celebration.
A very intimate wedding : about 40 guests (with about half of it being kids !), people coming from far away for this couple, and enjoy some time together, despite the rainy weather on that day.
A bride who decides, when it’s staring to rain during the ceremony that NO, she wont ruin the moment and get an umbrella, it’s fine, she wants to enjoy the moment no matter what. LOVE is above that.
Guest who all help out to moove the tables under the trees when rain is back during the cocktail.
Couples in love, people wearing kilts, a loving family, an impressive dad, and kids being silly.
A dreamy day, a perfect recipe for a dream wedding, something I could dream of for myself, but also, final touch : instead of a dessert and “piece montée ” (traditionnal French dessert for weddings), there was a “cheese cake” : a pyramid of French cheese.
I dreamt about it on Pinterest, Jacqueline and Dave made it real on that day !
No more words, when photos can sum it all up 🙂
