THE SCENE: Amid 300 acres of London waterways, greenery and parkland, back in 1908, the James Wyatt-designed mansion at Stoke Park was the United Kingdom’s first country club and hotel (it’s even been the backdrop for two James Bond films). “Stoke Park has a glamorous history… [and] I have a personal, tennis connection to this grand property,” says Ramey. “I first visited in 2012 while I was filming my travel show, Destination Tennis. We were covering The Boodles, an intimate exhibition tennis tournament which also happens to be one of most distinguished events of the summer garden party season. Champagne-sipping guests draped in jewels go to watch the top mens’ tennis players against this unbelievable backdrop. The whole scene is breathtaking, and I instantly fell in love. Since then, I’ve come back each June, ahead of Wimbledon, as well as throughout the year to recharge. It’s my happy place. (www.stokepark.com) THE BACK(HAND) STORY: “I wanted the fashion to be an organic part of the shoot and story by using London designers who also possessed an additional, very special quality: the ability to bridge worlds. This exquisite gown and head piece are bespoke pieces, handmade in England, by designer G. Hasanova. The regal collection takes a modern approach to a time-honored tradition of haute couture. When I first met with the designer, I got goose bumps because it was exactly what I had envisioned. We both felt it was perfect for the concept. (www.ghasanova.com)
