Poppy Delevingne led the arrivals at the the Longleat estate in Wiltshire today as Vogue editor Edward Enninful’s prepared for his wedding to his long term partner Alec Maxwell in the A-list event of the year. 

The wedding is expected to have 300 guests, including Leonardo DiCaprio, Victoria Beckham, Kate Moss and Donatella Versace with Poppy among the first pictured arriving at the stately home in Wiltshire that boasts a 9,000-acre safari park famed for its lions. 

The English model arrived clutching a Covid test and travelled with Italian model Bianca Brandolini. 

The celebration is expected to combine Edward’s 50th birthday celebrations and his wedding. Also in attendance was designer Marc Jacobs who sported a weather appropriate puffer jacket as her headed into Babington House where guests are staying. 

Anders Christian Madsen, a fashion critic at British Vogue, shared a picture with Vogue Australia fashion editor Christine Centenera and Victoria Beckham – who sported a bridal inspired white dress. 

‘Off to @edward_enninful’s birthday ball with my two dates, because prom dreams come true. Thank you @davidbeckham and @joeledgerton for letting me stand in,’ he wrote, suggesting the former England football captain wouldn’t be making it to the celebrations as he is is currently away skiing.

The event is set to be filled with supermodels with  Naomi Campbell on the guest list. The mother-of-one, who has been friends with Edward for 30 years, was also the cover star for the most recent edition of Vogue, where she shared the first picture of her baby’s face.  

Vogue supremo Edward counts Kendall Jenner, Cara Delevingne, Orlando Bloom and Bella Hadid among his close circle. LA-based Karlie Kloss also shared a post this morning saying she’s in London, suggesting she might be joining the festivities tonight.

Bella’s sister and perpetual Vogue cover girl Gigi Hadid shared a trio of snaps saying she would be unable to make it to the celebrations – and thanking the editor for his ‘support, guidance and friendship’. 

Dua Lipa also shared an Instagram saying she couldn’t attend wishing Edward a happy birthday and saying she wishes was there.

Last night Edward shared a snap to Instagram at the Laylow restaurant in west London, which he captioned ‘pre-birthday dinner.

Guests arriving at the wedding appear to be treated to a tour of Longleat. Socialite Richie Akiva – who is known as ‘the king of New York nightlife’ as he owns many clubs in the US, shared a video to his Instagram story showing his arrival at the estate and a tour headed by Emma Weymouth, followed by afternoon tea.

It is believed that Mr Enninful’s close friend Emma Weymouth, the Marchioness of Bath, has given him the use of Longleat where she lives with her husband Ceawlin Thynn, the 8th Marquess of Bath. 

The model and socialite, Britain’s first black marchioness, is a contributing editor to Vogue and is regularly seen socialising with the fashion magazine’s staff at swanky restaurants in London. 

Supermodels Eva Herzigova and Irina Shayk are also expected to be invited, but it is not known if Dame Anna Wintour,  Vogue’s editor-in-chief, will be there following rumours of tension between Mr Enninful and her. 

Some believe he may invite her if only to scotch further rumours of a rift. She is currently in London.  

Earlier today,  Mr Enninful posted a snap to Instagram writing: ’50th birthday on 22.2.22. Let’s go,’.

The post was quickly flooded with comments from A-listers who couldn’t wait to celebrate with him, including Poppy Delevingne, Munroe Bergdorf, Madison Headrick and Bianca Brandolini.

Mr Enninful and Mr Maxwell, who live in west London, are expected to bring their beloved black-and-white Boston terrier Ru to the event for a double celebration that will also mark the Vogue editor’s milestone birthday.

Snaps from today show preparations for the celebration underway, with dozens of bouquets arriving at the glamorous estate.

Photographers were seen on the estate, alongside vendors carrying in various items on what’s set to be an incredibly lavish celebration.

‘This is going to be the wedding of the year – there will be no expense spared and no detail ignored,’ a source previously told the Mail on Sunday.

‘Edward is one of the best-connected people in Britain, and across America too, so expect super-famous guests. People are already saying you won’t see so many A-listers in one room ever again.

‘Edward appears to have saved some money on the venue as he is thought to have been given it by Emma Weymouth as a wedding present.

‘Edward and Alec have been wanting to marry for some time and Edward’s 50th birthday seemed such a special day to do it.’

In an interview in 2019, Mr Enninful confirmed that he had proposed to Mr Maxwell, whom he met at a party 15 years earlier.

‘Over dinner I just asked if we should get engaged. We’ll marry eventually – there’s no rush,’ he said then.

The journalist also revealed that he would like to be a father.
