Happy ending

Is the title of our latest published work in the September 2016 issue of 25 Beautiful Homes magazine…
Pages 78 to 79 in the September 2016 issue of 25 Beautiful Homes magazine featuring Amy and Pierre-Emmanuel de Leusse's stone-bulit 18th-century cottage called 'La Petite Maison' on the edge of the charming village called Saint-Orens-Pouy-Petit near Condom.
.. on pages 78 to 79 – featuring Amy and Pierre-Emmanuel de Leusse’s stone-bulit 18th-century cottage called ‘La Petite Maison’ on the edge of the charming village called Saint-Orens-Pouy-Petit near Condom.

“Realising a long-held dream, Amy and Pierre-Emmanuel de Leusse discovered the beauty of rural life.”

Which I talked about shooting here: “Day 10” – 6 years ago.

So just want to say Congratulations to you both here…

.. for this very happy ending – as it did take us quite a while too, for our dream to come true Wink.

However, a Tall order – which is the title of our other one in this issue…
Pages 111 to 113 in the September 2016 issue of 25 Beautiful Homes magazine featuring Karen Dyer's 19th-century farmhouse near the village of Greyabbey in County Down.
.. on pages 111 to 113, featuring Karen Dyer’s 19th-century farmhouse near the village of Greyabbey in County Down – was one we had to wait even longer for.

“Karen Dyer had a grand vision for her family farmhouse, but she had a mountain to climb to make it a reality.”

So I also want to say a big Congratulations to Karen and her daughter Beth here…

.. for this very tall order – as after all these years I had almost given up on this becoming a reality too Wink.

In other words: Way to go to you all, for this very happy ending to a very tall order – from Marie, Mandi & me – who didn’t give up on our dreams neither smile

La Petite Maison.

Shooting today at Pierre Emmanuel & Amy de Leusse’s stone-built​ 18th-century cottage called La Petite Maison
Pierre Emmanuel and Amy de Leusse's Villa La Petite Maison which is nestled in the heart of the Gers countryside on the edge of the charming village Saint-Orens-Pouy-Petit near Condom.
.. which is nestled in the heart of the Gers countryside, on the edge of the charming village Saint-Orens-Pouy-Petit near Condom.

The storyline:

Amy (20’s) is English (from London) but moved to Paris a few years ago where she works as an Art PR.
She and Pierre Emanuelle, who is French, only got married last week !!

Amy knew about the little house before it came on the market – it was a huge financial step for her to buy it !!
She had to present a business plan to the Bank to secure the mortgage – but she loved the little place so much she was determined to make it her own.

Anyway, the weather has changed so a lot more lighting was required…
Setting up the living room
.. to create that ‘sunny’ look…

.. that one would expect to see…
Setting up the bedroom
.. both inside…

.. and out…

.. as this is France we are talking about here – not Ireland 🙂

So we both had to work surprisingly hard on this one, even though it was, in theory, sitting up perfect.
Still, very pleased with the end results – which is all that anyone will really ever see or even remember – and so fingers crossed for a good result on the editorial front – and hopefully we will all see it in print next year.

Anyway, that was day 10 for Marie & me, on this amazing road trip.
