Former French president Francois looked proud as he posed for photos with former partner and mother of the groom Ségolène Royal along with the bride's parents before the happy couple tied the knot.

The bride looked radiant in a beautiful white lace bodice over a structured corset, paired with a light printed skirt for the ceremony. She carried a bouquet of white orchids and wore her hair in an elegant upstyle, accessorising with stylish yellow gold and pearl earrings.
