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. With just THREE dates left in 2023 (check out our late availability!) our diary is now open for 2024 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.

Magical place!
From the moment we came for a first look at Elmore Court we knew it was the place for us - it was the only venue that actually made me feel tearful as we looked around it. The house is just beautiful, the main hall with its magical light makes for the most breathtaking ceremony room, every single bedroom for overnight guests was stunning, and it was fantastic to have friends and family staying in the house and feeling like proper house guests rather than hotel guests. Team E made sure absolutely everything ran so smoothly on the day, with so many of our guests commenting on the great team, the beautiful surrounds and, especially, the magnificent food (everything, from reception canapés through to the cooked breakfast served for house guests the morning after, was impeccable). I wish we could go back and do it all again!

Perfect wedding!
We had our beautiful wedding at Elmore Court in April 2022. We had looked at several venues before I stumbled upon Elmore during some online searches. We were apprehensive about getting married 90 mins drive from home but thought we would take a look anyway. As soon as we arrived at the gates, I got what I was finally looking for "the feels"! The Hall took my breath away and I knew that would be the aisle I'd be walking down. We loved the historical feel of the main house and how this contrasted the modern Gillyflower. I remember asking where bits of decor were from and being told that was just part of the room. The coach house was the perfect addition. We ended up booking the 'Long Thursday' option which was perfect. We had family coming from the North East and the USA so knowing they could make themselves comfortable for 2 nights was great. Everyone felt like they were on a mini break with a wedding as part of it. Our 2 year old son loved The Zest sculpture or 'water mountain' as it was renamed. Alex our co-ordinator was amazing, she was so warm and friendly. It was reassuring to know if we had a stress she was always there with a solution. The food was insane and so many people have contacted us about it since the wedding. I'm the only bride I know who got brownies, fresh bread and a choice of 3 breakfasts on the wedding morning. It feels like Elmore Court thought of everything a couple could possibly want from their wedding and also things you didn't know you needed. I'm just sad we don't have an excuse to visit again.

We could not have wished for more
We had the most incredible fusion wedding at Elmore Court and we couldn’t have asked for anything more. From start to finish, Alex and the whole team at Elmore Court were simply outstanding. Our East meets West themed Wedding required a little sensitivity and some complexity, but nothing was ever an issue for the hardworking, passionate and hilarious team at Elmore. From our very first visit, to the day after the wedding, we felt looked after, listened to, and the team at Elmore were always working to provide the best service possible. Friendly, extremely organised and always a step ahead, we felt in safe and comfortable hands throughout. On the big day, we had a selection of beautifully prepared Indian canapés, a stunning 5 course Western wedding breakfast, and Anselm’s cellar provided a beautiful selection of fine wines to accompany the meal. The Gillyflower is a stunning space to have the wedding breakfast and it converted into the most perfect dance floor later in the evening! Elmore was our home for 48 hours. The team made it feel like our home. They wanted us to feel like it was ours for this special moment, and as a result, it will always hold a special place in our heart. The place is magnificent, steeped in history, but it is also warm, welcoming and a fantastic place to make a host of new memories to last a lifetime. We couldn’t recommend it more.

Absolutely wonderful
We had booked Elmore long before the pandemic and were sadly very affected by multiple postponements. The team at Elmore were unbelievably supportive and accommodating, helping us rearrange several times. Kat kept in touch with us throughout and was always happy to answer questions. When the day FINALLY arrived we really couldn’t have asked for anything more. The coach house is a brilliant touch the night before and a great place for preparation in the morning and the all important breakfast. Elmore court itself is beautiful. The gillyflower looked stunning. We have had so many compliments on the quality of the food, which is delicious. The big reveal of the dancefloor is such a great touch and a great place to dance the night away (which we definitely did!) All of the staff are friendly and super attentive. We had an amazing wedding and really would recommend Elmore Court to everyone!

The best wedding I've ever been to (from an event manager)
I might be prejudiced, as it was my own wedding.. but, as an event manager, I was always going to be extra critical (lol) AND I cannot recommend Elmore Court enough. The service, planning, food, drinks and overall experience was second to none. The whole team gave us the night of our lives! And all our guests made a point of letting us know that it was the best wedding they have been to - mainly because the venue and service was exceptional. Thank you to Alex, Adam and the rest of the team xx
