Personal Message from the Manager

Name of Wedding Contact: Melissa Hargreaves
Please do get in touch and book in for a viewing. I would be so happy to take you on a personal tour of the house and all its accommodation and around the wonderful formal gardens. I can then tell you all about how you can make a very unique and one off wedding day here, using all the magical spaces over the three days and two nights that you are able to hire Pauntley Court for. As the house is our family home, it has a very personal and warm feeling about it when you come and stay.

A magical wedding venue
Pauntley Court is such a special place. In the initial stages of our wedding planning, we struggled to find a space that would work for our 15 person micro-wedding. When we found Pauntley, I knew it was meant to be. Melissa is a lovely host, who diligently checked in on us to make sure everything worked as it should. Our wedding coordinator Holly was also an invaluable asset. The day wouldn't have run so smoothly without her. Pauntley's gardens are breath taking, and so nicely kept by Melissa's mum. They were the perfect backdrop to our special day and featured heavily in our pictures. Our wedding day was perfect and it meant so much to us that we could have it at Pauntley Court. And the fact that we were able to spend the whole weekend there with our families made it all the more special. I couldn't recommend Pauntley Court enough to prospective brides and grooms.

absolutely beautiful and such a special place...
"Melissa was so kind, helpful and thoughtful throughout our whole wedding planning process. As soon as we came to Pauntley Court we just knew we wanted to get married there. Melissa's home is absolutely beautiful, and such a special place. We have made the most special memories to last a lifetime, and had the most incredible weekend spent with our closest family and friends. It was overwhelming after such a terrible year and we are just so happy it all went ahead as planned. We are so sad it is all over! We hope to come to stay again one day, and thank you again for everything.We would also like to say a special thank you to Beth, for taking the weight off our shoulders and planning everything to a tee! She was so much help and answered all of our questions on the lead up, thinking of ideas and suggestions before we’d even thought of them ourselves! Her help on the day was invaluable, as it gave Martha and Nick the opportunity to relax and enjoy the day as they should too! "

.. pink painted walls feel as though you're abroad
"After a long wait due to the Covid situation, we recently had our wedding reception at the beautiful Pauntley Court in July. After seeing many venue options when we first got engaged, Pauntley stood out from the rest by a mile, not only because of the beautiful house and gardens, but also because of the wonderful venue hosts, Melissa and Mark. They were both extremely helpful throughout all the Covid changes and were so supportive in the lead up and day of the wedding. The house is absolutely stunning inside and out, the pink painted walls feel as though you're abroad and you're surrounded by wild seasonal flowers and amazing views of the lake. We got married at the Church at the top of the drive, then had our reception in a traditional style marquee in the gardens. Our bridal party loved staying in the house for the weekend, everyone felt very relaxed like a home away from home. The wedding was truly perfect and we can't wait to go back and stay at the Dovecote in the future! Thank you to Melissa, Mark and their brilliant team at Pauntley!"

The setting is utterly magnificent...
"We had the most wonderful wedding at Pauntley Court in June 2021. Melissa, Rachel and Holly made sure that everything was perfect and the weekend was truly magical. The setting is utterly magnificent and the house and gardens are so beautiful and well cared for. Our friends and family loved every minute of a relaxing and enjoyable weekend, from the the moment they arrived on Friday, through to our departure on Sunday afternoon. We simply cannot recommend Pauntley enough to anyone looking for the perfect wedding in the perfect setting" ​

The whole place exudes romance
Pauntley Court is simply a magical place. The whole place exudes romance, with another beautiful spot to sit or stroll through around every corner. Part of what makes Pauntley so special is that, despite it's 11 bedrooms, formal entertaining rooms and immaculate gardens, it immediately felt like home to us and to all our guests who stayed with us. It balances its historic character with all the benefits of modernity (such as modern en suites with seemingly limitless hot water!). We were given the run of the house, with the knowledge that Melissa would be there in a flash if needed. On our wedding day itself, Melissa and our wedding coordinator Holly were then when we needed them, keeping the day running like clockwork and unobtrusively ensuring everything came together as planned. In addition, Rachel the housekeeper kept the whole house looking immaculate throughout our stay. We can't recommend Pauntley enough. Its inherent beauty meant there was very little decorating necessary for the wedding. It's owners and staff were friendly, kind and accommodating. I can't imagine a better place to have a small wedding."
