The couple, Nicole and Benoit, moments before the party started. Camera shy, a bit nervous and full of anticipation. Nicole is from South Africa and Benoit is French (his name gives that away.) Benoit comes from a big family, they were married last weekend in a small family town in the Basque countryside. Yesterday, a celebration took place in Marseilles for the other half of their family and friends.
It started with champagne, parents and grandparents popped the corks. From then on out it was one wonderful celebration of joy.
Songs were written and sung for the married couple, and traditional love songs from the Basque country shared.
Generations of love....
