Lord & Lady Taylor

Lord & Lady Taylor of Warwick

This is the real life romance between the first American in 110 years since Nancy Astor {who became the UK’s first female MP} to wed a serving member of The House of Lords.

All of the elements came together in a spectacular way, in the Spring of 2015 when Lady and Lord Taylor wed off the shores of Rome.

Laura and John met in Atlanta, Georgia. Ironically this is the city where Ray Charles was fined in 1962 for refusing to sing to a segregated black/white audience. And this iconic mixed race couple originates from completely opposite backgrounds.

John is black Afro-Caribbean, Laura is blonde, Swedish American. John was raised in inner city Birmingham, Laura’s early life was in rural Texas and then Puget Sound beach Seattle, with Mount Rainier as her childhood backyard.

Laura’s ancestors are the famous John and Priscilla Alden of the Mayflower 1620, which set sail off the coast of England to discover the new world {America}. A historic full circle would occur 395 years later when one of the Alden family would again return to England, and marry a British Peer.

John’s ancestors date back to the slaves on the Taylor Plantation, Jamaica and Dubliners in Ireland; His parents came to England in the 1950s. John’s father played cricket for the Warwickshire Bears. His book “No Blacks, No Irish, No Dogs’’ recaps his humble beginnings.

Baron Taylor of Warwick would take his bride from the big sky American Heartland farmstead dairy on a dirt road, where she raised her 5 children, to the epic political centre Palace of Westminster, in the grand iconic city of London. 8 years after their first encounter in Atlanta, it was Laura’s oldest daughter’s Colleen and Bridgette, who brought the two together.

Here take a glimpse into the lives of one of the UK House of Lord’s most unique couples, The Rt. Hon. Lord John Taylor of Warwick and Lady Laura Taylor of Warwick.
