Not only the actual house and gardens of Squerryes Court, which are exquisite, but also the way the house was "dressed" by the set designers and the way the intimate photography and direction brought the viewer through the house as if you were right there with Emma and Mr. Knightley as they were verbally sparring with each other.
But to Jonny Lee Miller's Mr. Knightley, well, that is a different matter. I mean, even the perfection of Squerryes Court cannot compare to his Mr. Knightley!
This is my idea of the perfect country manor house. And to all of the lucky brides who get married or have their receptions there every year, I am green with envy. And to anyone who got to see the Emma Exhibition this year at Squerryes Court which included some of the dresses from the above production-you are very lucky!!!
Anyone want to join me in a house and garden tour? Even though the costumes are gone, I could spend at least an afternoon poking around Emma's home in the country. You too?
