Same sex wedding in France
One summer day Hanni and I drove up North to meet Sebastien & Markus in the Luberon region around Avignon.
Markus and Sebastien already got married in a civil ceremony in Brussels. Sebastien is Belgian, Markus is from Southern Germany and they live in Zurich these days. The private ceremony we witnessed at Mas de Boutonnet underlined their union and was accompanied by speeches of close family members and friends. It was one of the most moving weddings we ever photographed. We just felt that their emotional state of joy for each others commitment connected everybody who was part of their wedding, including us, in a very strong way.
First and foremost Markus and Sebastien wanted everybody to have a good time – a day to be remembered, with good Belgium beer, Provencal regional food, games, a warm summer night filled with the sound of cicadas – or as they put it simply: ‘We wanted a day in Provence.’
First thing I stumbled upon in the morning was this carved stone lying on a remote field somewhere on the property.
