Wedding Brooms – Balais de mariage

“The broom car” is a dedicated car that follows the bridal and guest cars from one location to the other. It usually carries a trail of pans or tins. We saw this more sophisticated version in front of Château du Rivau near Chinon last weekend. Below is the well-beloved Renault 4L built between 1961 and December 1992.
Nous avons vu cette  voiture balai devant le Château du Rivau à côté de Chinon dimanche dernier. On a bien aimé la 4L aussi.

It’s traditional in France, but there isn’t much information available. I always assumed that brooms and pots & pans symbolised the new household.
