Town & Country: laid-back luxe in Berkshire
One fabulous party? Try three! Rory and Lisa planned a weekend packed with relaxed, rustic-chic events
The perfect place
Forget finding a venue – the first task on Abu Dhabi-based couple and Lisa and Rory’s wedmin list was choosing a country for their ‘I dos’. “With friends and family spread halfway across the globe, we needed somewhere in the middle that was big enough for all our guests to stay for a weekend of activities,” Lisa explains. Enter The Olde Bell, a 12th century coaching inn (recently renovated to luxe effect) perfect for a quintessentially English countryside affair, starting with a riverside picnic and welcome barbecue the night before the main event.
