On our fourth and final day we went for a drive in the mountains next to where Stuart & Mel live. We had a beautiful drive looking for the perfect picnic spot - somewhere with a place to sit, an amazing view, and a bit of shade (it was over 30C). In the end we gave up and stopped here, which had the amazing view and a bit of shade, but nowhere to sit!
Day 3 was the main event - Stuart & Mel's wedding. Photos are here:
These were available for hire next to the lake. Elizabeth loved them!
Day 2 we set off for Annecy, a famously beautiful town on a lake not too far away. Unfortunately it was tipping down. By the time we had finished our lunch of crepes followed by crepes it had stopped though, and we had a nice wander around.
We did get an amazing view of Mont Blanc from the top of Brevent.
As we couldn't go up Mont Blanc, we went up the mountain opposite. 2 Cable car rides later and we were 2525m up at the top of Brevent (where Elizabeth did a nice song and dance routine at the top).
On our first day we set off for Chamonix Mont Blanc, about an hour away. Nice drive, and we got there about 11:30. We then found out that there was such a big queue that we wouldn't be able to go up Mont Blanc until 4pm, and wouldn't get back down till 7pm! Here is a photo of it from the bottom anyway...
