In the earliest known example of drawn animation, ‘Fantasmagorie’ (1908) cartoonist Emile Cohl drew and filmed 700 drawings, double exposing each drawing and creating a two- minute film. The title is a reference to the “fantasmograph”, a mid-Nineteenth Century variant of the magic lantern that projected ghostly images that floated across the walls. The drawings are simple but in the two minutes the world is turned upside down, objects morph into animals and flowers, heads roll and the fractured narrative shifts constantly - 'Fantasmagorie is a delicious stream of consciousness'

Anyway we will be putting together a registry for gifts. It is a list of drawings that we would like. Please comment on the picture to let others know that the drawing has been taken. You can do anything, take a photograph, paint, draw, animate, sew or scribble. You of course can do something of your own, everything is wonderful and the best

I thought i would give you another bit of info to entice you some more

Often called the "Garden of France". the Loire Valley is an enchanted land of vineyards, flowers and rolling green hills dotted with more than a thousand chateaux. It is perhaps the charm of its gentle pace life that has, for centuries, made it a sought-after location for poets and writers. It is a step back through the history of some of France's finest works of art.

Our favorite furry friend Guirgie has rightly pointed out that the 24th is actually a Saturday and not actually the day of our wedding, I guess this is quite typical that we dont even know the date ourselves!! Sooooooooooo the correct dates are as follows
21st - 24th July and our wedding is on Friday 23rd July

So sorry if this has caused any trouble, but if it has please tell us because i guess that means you have booked your ticket which is so exciting!!!! I am also kinda glad as Katy Perry made it to our blog in some way. xx

So we have just booked! Merci beaucoup maman et papa! xxxxxx

Here are a few facts about where we are staying

The first document concerning the castle dates from 1090. During the middle ages, it was one of the main fortresses in the region then known as the Bas-Poitou. The main tower (keep) was built in the thirteenth century, then enlarged in the fifteenth century, giving the structure its near present-day appearance.

Until the sixteenth century, the lords of La Flocellière belonged to the powerful Surgères family. The wife of René de Surgères, the last of the line, was a poetess who wrote in the style of Ronsard. During the Wars of Religion, the castle was the scene of several battles between Protestant and Catholic forces.

We will tell you more about accomodation soon.
