Beef ribs on the menu
The couple had decided to make it simple by inviting their loved ones to their table in their Tullist home. No caterer for the occasion but on the menu of “beef ribs bought at the Tulle market”, said the former mayor of the city of seven hills.
As for the bride’s bouquet, it was bought from a florist in Tulle, the Coussaert house, who did not know that it was planned for the wedding. “It was when I saw the photo that I knew, says the shopkeeper. Julie Gayet often comes to the store. She is very nice. She had come the Saturday before, telling me that she needed flowers in order to decorate his table for his birthday”.
The day before her wedding, June 3, the actress celebrated her 50th birthday.
