Bearing in mind that every time we post a blog about how ‘Winter is behind us’ the sky turns black and it starts hailing, it’s with a little trepidation that we point your attention to these positively idyllic shots of a recent wedding in the South of France.
Acoustic wedding band Fables and Friends performed as part of a wedding day created by boutique wedding planner Mary Herrington, whose work has been featured in Martha Stewart Weddings and You and Your Wedding Magazine. Playing an outdoor unplugged set pre-ceremony, the band later performed instrumental versions of Lucy In the Sky with Diamonds and She’s the One as the couple made their entrance.
The band later returned for a full set during a drinks reception by the pool and a final set by the beach as the sun went down. The band’s laid back folk-infused take on popular hits from the last few decades was an excellent choice for the wedding and location – their versatility allowed for a number of different musical options throughout the day, which is exactly what you need at a wedding.
The wedding was featured on wedding photographer Polly Alexandre’s own blog as well as Style me Pretty so be sure to take a look for more pictures of the day. There are more pics of Fables and Friends on our Facebook and Pinterest pages.
