Beautiful location and amazing staff
We got married in aug 2020 at Elmer's Court Hotel, the staff couldnt have been more helpful (considering the covid restrictions and continual rule changes). Chelsea and Paul in particular were extremely helpful at keeping in touch and making any changes that we wanted. The location is gorgeous and the grounds are so beautiful for the special wedding photos. We definitely recommend them!

The day was perfect
The day was perfect and better than ever imagined. The weather was insane, who would have thought it would have been sunny enough to have the drinks outside in March! Thanks so much to Chelsea for all of her hard work. She made this whole experience so much easier and less stressful. Nathan and I could not appreciate it any more.
