Over the weekend it was my absolute pleasure to attend the wedding of our friends Ali and Chris at The Crown Inn in Amersham. The Crown is a delightful old coaching inn which you might vaguely remember as the setting for the scene where Hugh Grant cosies up to Andie Mcdowell in Four Weddings and a Funeral. It has since been exquisitely restyled by interior designer Ilse Crawford with Farrow and Ball colours, Welsh wool blankets, old Ercol chairs and vintage radios combining to delicious effect to create a warm, welcoming and soothingly simple interior.
It was so lovely to relax and enjoy a wedding where I wasn't running around worrying about the flowers. The Crown is not only a perfect venue for an intimate informal wedding, it's also a lovely place for a romantic weekend break.
I could go on and on about the great food, the crisp white linen, the sumptuos beds, the chic bathrooms etc... but maybe I'll just show you a few more pictures instead and let you make up your own mind.
