Lights on a Sail

Another glorious day in South West France and another wedding for The Candies.  Today’s couple live in France and married a few month ago, but arranged this party to celebrate with family and friends; and folks had travelled from across the globe to attend.

Bourdeilles-Verdoyer-04

We arrived in the stunning little village of Bourdeilles and unloaded the cars; lucky for us there was some help on hand to help us move all the gear into the inner courtyard of the very beautiful Hostellerie Le Donjon.

We did our get-in and a sound check and went off to cool down with a cold drink. The owners installed us in their sitting room to relax and get ready… which was very welcome!

At the allotted time we started the evening with a little bit of Fabulously Vintage… it seemed the perfect choice for Champagne or Pimms… both of which were flowing!

Folks started eating so we took a break before returning later for our uptempo party set.  As the night grew darker we were thrilled to see all of our lights transform the courtyard into a magical grotto with dancing lights and colours bouncing off the walls.  The summer sail (hung to provide shade from the hot sun) was the perfect foil for our laser and globes… ooooh it looked so pretty!

And so again, we sang and  danced the night away… it was hot hot hot and very humid but these lovely folks gave a wonderful welcome!  And we do love a good wedding!
