Whoops, almost forgot…

The Paris Wedding of the Year is just about to take place at Marie du 19éme, 5-7, place Armand Carrel.

The sensible and talented writer, Paris Paul is getting married to Blogmistress Extrodinaire, Paris Karin as we speak!

Doesn’t the bride look radiant?

I’d marry her in a shot…

If I didn’t have Mrs A Taste of Garlic!

Paris Paul, you’re a lucky man!

I think I may just adjourn to our regional offices (otherwise known as Bar Chez Michel, down in the village) and raise a little glass of something Ricardish in honour of the happy occasion!

All the best

    Obviously I shall be equally interested in The Other Paris Wedding of the Year too!

    You got those 2CVs sorted out yet?

    All the best


    P.S. But, thinking about it….

    Can you really compete with someone who plays Dazed and Confused at his practice wedding? If so, I’ll be there!

    Congrats to Karin and Paul too. I hope it all goes swimmingly and all the best as a married couple.

    Hi Keith .. I know it is fantastic news .. I was meant to be there, but with the healing broken ankle , it was not possible. I did a post this morning too.

    Congratulations to the newly weds!

    Wow, thanks Keith! I almost forgot myself but this reminded me to get my butt to the marie on time.

    The ceremony was as wonderful as it was brief and, in true Trailer Park Paris spirit, a small lunch with the wedding party was held at Leon de Bruxelles, Place de Clichy.

    For anyone in the neighborhood tomorrow, the potluck wedding reception picnic is taking place at the Parc des Buttes-Chaumont, Saturday September 10 at noon, at the entrance near the City Hall of the 19th. The more the merrier!

    Thanks again one and all for your wishes, and thanks, Keith, for the shout out!

    Yes, indeed, Keith! Many, many thanks. I know there have been some other Paris Brides this year, and I don’t want to steal any of their thunder, but as my HUSBAND (!) up there writes 😀 I think we had the best Paris Ghetto aka “Trailer Park-esque” wedding fest of the year! it was, uniquely, a low-key event, but plenty down-to-earth, and with many loving friends in attendance in lieu of family. I eventually hope to blog about it, too, but honestly? I had a lovely full 72 hours offline this weekend, and it was glorious! Sometimes you just have to be out there, enjoying life, eh? And Paul and I were doing just that. 🙂 Thank you again, for the shout out, Keith. 🙂
