Mike and I traveled from Paris to Roscoff on a train the next morning. It was about a 5 hour trip and was actually quite pleasant and simple to do. On that evening, the welcome garden party of Mia & Jacques was held. The event was at Jacques family home in Roscoff, and it was sublimely beautiful.
This wedding weekend definitely brought the most Filipinos Roscoff had ever seen, hahaha. It was great to be with friends on that side of the world, and meeting Jacques’s family was a delight. Mia and Jacques had a great crowd; from their childhood pals to their college friends, everyone was wonderful.
Here are some photos of the beautiful view that surrounded Roscoff, taken with my Fujifilm X-T20.
Sight seeing and walking around town before the wedding. The weather was perfect; sun was out and the winds weren’t too chilly.
Look at this handsome man! Haha, I had to do a quick shot of him in his Topshop suit and Zara tie ;-] Oh don’t we tidy up nicely?
The only perk of arriving late to a wedding ceremony!
Got a little emotional! Mia looked perfect in her very own Mia Arcenas wedding gown.
The ceremony was held in the Church of Our Lady of Croaz Batz, from the 16th century. It was quaint, charming and very elegant, perfect for Mia and Jacques.
Our beautifully packaged giveaways and table arrangements.
Our mandatory couple photo before the night got started. Im wearing a pastel pink Mango jumpsuit, (which by the way, I saw someone wearing at the welcome party the night before! Oh, well. Great minds think alike!) and sandals that I fell in love with in a boutique store in Roscoff. No heels, no problems!
With the stunning bride, Mia.
My gorgeous childhood friend, Camilla Guidicelli.
This is what happens when you fall asleep at parties! “We appreciate you” LOL.
Saving the best till last… KNOCKED OUT on the bus on the way back to our hotel, with mouth wide open…
My hangover the next day wasn’t so bad, thank goodness! The wedding party met at the pier and off we went to Île de Batz.
Île de Batz is a small island just a few minutes away from Roscoff known for their scenic views, pristine beaches, affluent flowers, and beautiful gardens. I only saw two cars on the island and a few tractors. The roads were quiet and wherever you looked there were flowers. The smell of lavender filled the air and all you could hear was the sound of the wind brushing through the leaves. I fell in love with this island instantly.
For those of you who love crepes, make sure you walk to the restaurant, Creperie du Phare. It is about a 20 minute walk from the pier and is a great place to sight-see.
What a wonderful trip and a great experience. Thank you Mia and Jacques, for having us there! It was a truly beautiful wedding and I wish you both all the love and happiness in the world! Next stop —> Plymouth, England via Brittany Ferries. 6 hour travel time…
