…….. there is a country house garden where alpacas may safely graze, giraffes stalk in daisy-rich grassland and wild boar lurk on the lawn. On one May weekend a gathering of French and English guests spent a sunny afternoon or two sipping champagne, playing petanque, croquet, jeronimo and volley ball. All you needed for an excuse was a wedding. When Julien married Lucy the sun shone bright and we partied till the early hours of the morning. Perfect.
