RF Wedding of the Week: French Country Wedding Photography by Marianne Taylor

By // October 2, 2013 // Posted in Photography, Wedding, Wedding of the Week

Americans (re: me) have a tendency to romanticize the French Countryside—with its wildflowers, stolen kisses and miles of baguettes. Does it get move lovely, more Chocolat, more French Kiss? This week’s wedding in Aubiac, France captured by London-based wedding photographer Marianne Taylor proves that oui, I am right to have these romantic delusions.
