A French weddingCreated by Jane in Jane Lawson's Blog

A Nuptial Mass is the same the world over but in France all the witnesses circle the altar as the couple make their vows, the church register is signed on the altar afterwards and the clapping was every bit as enthusiastic as in England. M. Le Curé was very inclusive and had some fun breaking into an English translation of parts of the service for the benefit of Les Anglais.

Everyone gathers for champagne and dozens and dozens of exquisite canapés, savoury and then sweet. The band was loud, and, inexplicably to us, every song was sung in English. I asked Catherine, my cousin, why this was, and she said that this was always the case. Every group was fronted by a singer who sang exclusively in English. It is seen as aspirational and très cool!

Catherine and Carine had chosen a theme of silver, pale grey and white and the tables were magnificent, each one decorated in the centre with white painted twigs on which were clipped the menu of the six courses. Yes six! Each with its own wine. To start there came trio of fish hors d’oeuvres, then a sorbet, then an entree of guinea hen farci with accompanying vegetables, then cheese, then the most amazing display for Le desert – nine different tarts, fruit, macarons and gateaux. Champagne came with this! And then the wedding cake accompanied by eau de vie de marc.
