…I wish I actually lived in the series Downton Abbey. I sometimes feel like I was born a hundred or so years too late, and I absolutely adore the history, clothes, and old-fashioned social customs shown in the show.

I dragged my fiancé around the stately home that Downton Abbey is filmed at last year (when he was my boyfriend, and he still asked me to marry him!). For those who don’t know/aren’t as nerdy as me, Highclere Castle in Berkshire is the location used for all of the external shots, as well as in the library and dining room scenes. I think that the rest is filmed on a set.

It was a gorgeous sunny day and it really was like stepping into an episode of Downton Abbey…I expected Isis the pooch to come bounding around the corner at any moment. If I could, I would have thrown on a 1920s dress and totally gotten into character!

It would be a stunning place to get married, but a little (read: A LOT ) out of our price range.

At any rate, I’ll remember how gorgeous the views were for a long time to come.

Big love,

DIY Bride x
