BRITTANY FOR WEDDINGS!
While the chapel bells are ringing, the bride and groom pull up, all smiles, in a flower covered horse drawn carriage. A long procession honours the newlyweds. Lace and top hats become animated and move together like a black and white broom. Young and old are dressed up from top to toe. Long, black dresses are decorated with colorful embroidery or starched lace. Oboes and Breton bagpipesresonate through the town, and accompany the processionto a nearby field which will host the wedding party late into the night. It is as if time has stopped and given way to a fairy tale. Welcome to Brittany, a land rich in culture and traditions! These ceremonies dignified the weddings of bygone days and now give the people of numerous Morbihan villages the opportunity to pay tribute to their history. They are also synonyms festival for visitors, hungry for Breton culture. Breton music, dance andfolklore are united here to please the ears, eyes,... and feet!
