TRAVEL

Time with Timo


The New York-based designer Timo Weiland took a trip to England for a picturesque wedding in Somerset followed by a cultural jaunt to London. We tagged along for the pretty ride.

1

Best choice in weekend wheels for the Somerset roadtrip? The “Figaro” by Nissan, hands down.

2

The bride, Carly Willians-Herrick, in Alexander McQueen; curator Emma Hill in Giambattista Valli; and myself wearing Timo Weiland and Patrik Ervell at the rehearsal dinner at the Charlton House in Somerset.

3

The wedding ceremony took place at the most picturesque chapel in Somerset, the St. James Church in East Lambrook.

4

This telephone booth in Shepton Mallet, Somerset, has seen better days.

5

Field of Dreams, the wildflower garden at Barcroft Hall, the family home of the groom, Robert Herrick, boasts the largest collection of annual wildflower species in the world. Here are our troops wandering through the paths.

Taking in the late afternoon sunshine out back at Barcroft Hall.

7

Under the arbor with Carly, wearing a Timo Weiland “Tabitha” dress, during the farewell brunch on the Orangerie Terrace at Charlton House.

8

Best kicks for English countryside? It’s a toss up between Vivienne Westwood polka dot tassel loafers and Corduroy tri-colored lace-ups by Duckie Brown x Florsheim.

9

As I have been Illuminati-obsessed since I was 7 years old, I made a visit to the world’s eeriest wonder, Stonehenge.

10

Favorite post-Paddington bookstop: Word on the Water on the River Thames.

11

Cone-bra crazy at Jean-Paul Gaultier’s exhibit, now in the final weeks of its run at the Barbican in London.

12

I can never visit London without a quick jaunt down Notting Hill’s Portobello Road to see which homes are for sale.

13

Traditional Sunday roast = BBQ and lobster with my great pal professional polo player Omar Mangalji at the Big Easy in Sloane Square.
