Elmers Court Hotel is one of the most romantic wedding venues in the beautiful New Forest, also being one of the only venues set on the Solent coastline. The magnificent 19th century manor house is set within 23 acres of spectacular grounds which provide the perfect settings for your wedding photographs in every season. In addition to the stunning grounds, you and your guests can enjoy the breath-taking sea views over the Solent as the perfect backdrop for your day. The impressive hotel has kept much of its original charm and character, retaining all of its original features. The Ballroom is the spectacular centrepiece of the hotel and offers you and your guests the most magnificent setting for a sumptuous wedding breakfast, followed by an evening of celebrations with your nearest and dearest. Whether you are planning to say “I do” in stunning stately surroundings or in a delightful outdoor location, we offer a fantastic selection of romantic and elegant settings for your ceremony. The venue is ideal for weddings all year round. In the sunny summer months, the Queen Mary Lawn provides the perfect spot for a drinks and canapé reception, while the Tudor-style Music Bar is cosy in the winter.

Beyond our wildest dreams!
We had the best the day and even after all the planning we were taken aback by how beautiful the day turned out to be, it was beyond our wildest dreams! And the weather was beautiful too. All of our guests were commenting on how helpful they were and how beautiful the hotel is. Thank you for all your hard work and help with everything. You have been amazing throughout!

Perfect from start to finish
We had a wonderful wedding on Saturday at Elmers Court. Great range of packages and choice. Beautiful grounds and food. Staff are wonderful and can't do enough for you. The guests couldn't stop saying how gorgeous the venue was. Chelsea Bacon our wedding coordinator was an absolute diamond and really helped us to organise everything and minimise stress throughout both the planning stages and the day itself. I can't recommend her and Elmers Court highly enough.

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.
