Oh J’adore! Have you heard about Love Lock Bridge in Paris? Well, I hadn’t but oh my, the romance! I am absolutely making sure I pack a padlock next time I take a trip across the channel as I want to contribute! Love padlocks (or Love Locks) are a custom where couples attach a padlock to a fence, bridge or gate to symbolize their eternal love and tradition has it that the key is thrown in the river.
I love these images by photographer Lukas Van Dyke who walked for over a mile to find a lock shop so they could then go back and attach one to the bridge, so cute!

This cute little Parisian elopement by photographer Sean Flanigan shows the couple attaching their personalised lock on Pont des Arts bridge on their wedding day (between the Louvre and the Seine) and the padlock even has their initials on it. Awww.

Maybe we should start one in London….Who’s up for it?
