Elmore Court Full Description
Wide open Cotswolds countryside as far as the eye can see (all the way to the Black Mountains of Wales on a clear day) gives the feeling of being happily lost in a far-flung corner of England, when in fact you are just 5 miles from the city of Gloucester with easy links to London. Our diary is now open for 2025 weddings! Our fun and fabulous team will look after your every whim. Each wedding and event is treated entirely individually, and hire of the house is always on an exclusive use basis... In fact you might start to feel so at home you won't ever want to leave- we've heard this many times! We like to say yes to any request, we're flexible and offer a different approach to planning... If you want a full on festival of entertainment, to bring your own alcohol, light candles and fires, party until after midnight, stay all weekend... That's all A-OK with us. We don't ask you use certain suppliers or force you to use our own kitchens... However, you will probably choose to have our team of 5-star-rated in-house chefs prepare you the most delicious banquet of your lives, as once you've tasted our wild, sustainable, homegrown and locally sourced wedding menu, you likely won't want to eat anything else ever again!! The only thing we do ask is that you look after the environment as we do. We are dedicated to protecting our natural world and have a long list of sustainable practices including; *Rewilding 250 acres of the estate (with plans to increase this) *Heating the house with carbon neutral heating by biomass *Energy comes from renewable sources *Toiletries are natural British botanical brand 100 Acres *We use refillable glass never plastic bottles *We have ditched all chemical cleaning products in favour of Teresano water system *We are working on offsetting the carbon of all who travel to and from Elmore Court and aim to be entirely carbon neutral by 2025... This list is always growing.

The perfect wedding venue
We got married at Elmore Court this June and we cannot recommend it enough. From the moment we first saw the house driving through the stunning gates, we knew it was special and that we couldn't see ourselves getting married anywhere else. My husband and I are both lovers of history and we wanted a venue with character and charm and Elmore had that in spades and was known as the party house for a reason! We booked it for a Saturday and Sunday as we had family and friends travelling from all across the UK as well as from further afield and we wanted to spend as much time as we could at Elmore. From beginning to end everyone we've dealt with at Elmore has been endlessly professional but made us feel like old friends in every interaction. We had Alice as our co-ordinator and she was absolutely brilliant! She was so calm and helpful and ensured the day went smoothly. The attention to detail is second to none at Elmore, the whole time there felt like you were at home not a venue. The house speaks for itself with how stunning it is and we loved that when we were shown around they were able to tell us stories about certain rooms and of the house which made it so much more personable. The Gillyflower which is their purpose-built function area at the back of the house doesn't steal the spotlight from the house and blends in beautifully with the surroundings but is a showstopper in its own right. They really thought of everything when building it. From being eco-conscious and using materials from the estate to build it down to the sound system there isn't a detail missed. The food at Elmore was STUNNING. So many guests told us how much they had enjoyed the food and that it was the best wedding meal they'd had. They were accommodating to all the dietary requirements and allergies of our guests. The breakfasts in the morning were also incredibly delicious. On the Sunday we invited guests back and we had a day in the garden playing rounders and other games. We also had an inflatable assault course put up in the field at the back by the Gillyflower which was great and adults and kids alike had so much fun! For the evening meal, we had platters of cheese and charcuterie in the walled garden which was amazing. It was so pretty and peaceful listening to the gentle breeze through the trees and the chatter of everyone there it was idyllic. When the sun started to set we went inside and sat in the drawing room and stayed up until the early hours playing some intense games of Mafia. It was so cosy and inviting and the perfect place to gather at the end of the day. As I said at the start, I can't recommend Elmore enough. The house is magical and the people who work there make it even more so. Thank you all so much for everything!

Best day of our lives
Words can not describe how this venue made our days so magical. The compliments we had from our guests after our wedding confirmed the feelings we had on our perfect day. The service was impeccable, kind and caring staff, who throughout looked after myself, my husband and most of all our guest. Great value for money, such a wonderful family feeling you get from the staff and the way they looked after us all was amazing from start to finish. A massive thank you to Elmore for helping us celebrate our marriage in style. Most of all thank you Alex, you are the best wedding planner that we could have asked for. Much love Lee and Rebecca

The most perfect day at the most perfect venue
I honestly think that Elmore Court is the best wedding venue there is. My husband and I got married in October and could not have imagined a more perfect day. Alex and the the rest of team E were fantastic; on the day and throughout all of the booking, planning and lead up to the big day. We can’t thank them enough! The day itself ran incredibly smoothly and was faultless. It was the perfect day. They are truly experts at what they do. The food was delicious and the staff were fantastic! It’s the most beautiful house and grounds for a wedding. I wish we could do it all over again!
