The Crown Inn at Amersham

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 that featured in Four Weddings and a Funeral. You might remember it as the setting for the scene where Hugh Grant cosies up to Andie Mcdowell. It has since been exquisitely restyled by interior designer Ilse Crawford with Farrow and Ball colours, Welsh wool blankets, 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 and the Crown was not only a perfect venue for an intimate informal wedding, it was also a lovely place for a romantic weekend break.

I could go on and on about the delicious 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.
