We wanted to share our experience at Elmore Court and the whole team there, as our wedding day was truly remarkable and we couldn't recommend the venue any more highly. Elmore Court was the first venue we saw, and we booked it immediately, as we knew we didn't want to miss out on the opportunity to have our wedding at this one-of-a-kind venue. It has everything - beautiful grounds, history, grandeur, modern and magical facilities, and the most amazing staff to help make your event perfect. From the very beginning, every member of the team was friendly and helpful, and so down to earth. The planning process was stress-free, as Leesa and Louise thought of almost everything before we even considered it, and helped us make choices and plan the day seamlessly. Chloe and the kitchen team were so wonderful. They were willing to help us tailor the menu to add special touches, to make the day all about us. The food was INCREDIBLE - so many of our guests commented that it wasn't just good for wedding food, it was delicious food, full stop. Simon was in touch frequently in the lead up to our wedding day, always helping to keep us on track, and with lots of kind words. These people do this constantly, yet they somehow managed to make us feel like our wedding was the most important day to them too. Everything was perfect in every way, and we wouldn't change a thing. The beauty of the venue speaks for itself, but the personal care we felt from the staff is what made it so special.

We couldn't have wished for more from a wedding venue. Not only is it absolutely stunning, the service is nothing but first-class. As soon we drove up to the gates, I was in tears. It was the first (and only) venue we looked at, and we knew straight away that we had to book it there and then. We loved the combination of the old school elegance of the main house (which was classic without feeling stuffy) for the ceremony and the modern, openness of the Gillyflower for the reception. I've always dreamed of getting married in an old manor house, but so many I'd seen on the internet were a sea of red carpet and small dark rooms - Elmore Court was light, spacious and really set the tone for our laid back but classic day. I can't praise the service enough! Rachel and Chloe were amazing - nothing was too much and anything was possible. The day ran perfectly... We were having so much fun during the drinks reception that we decided to push back dinner slightly so we could enjoy more cocktails and chatting - they didn't bat an eyelid, it was done, no problem! The food was incredible, how they served over 100 steaks perfectly medium rare, all at the same time, I'll never know! So many people have told me that our wedding was the best they'd ever been to and I'm sure that has A LOT to do with Elmore Court and Team Elmore! Thanks EC for helping us have the best day of our lives!!! xxx

We had such an amazing day and couldn't have asked for anything more from Team E! Rachel (events manager) was absolutely fantastic, not only did she make us feel at ease during the planning stages, but she also made sure the morning of the wedding was relaxed and ticked like clockwork. She even managed to calm The groom down when he was starting to feel overwhelmed. Chloe was so professional and everyone commented on how organised she was during the dinner. Every guest had their need met and all were super impressed! She was so friendly and knowledgable we felt like we had left an old friend after every meeting with her. She's an absolute superstar! Louise was super helpful and made the departure the next morning very easy! The food was phenomenal, with many guests commenting how they had never tasted anything like it and were very complimentary of the presentation. The waiting staff were fantastic. Overall we were absolutely over the moon. Every idea and thought that we had for the day was catered for and we could not have asked for a more perfect day. From start to finish our experience with Elmore has been exceptional and something we will never forget and neither will our guests. Friends and family have all said it is the best wedding they have ever been to and it could have not been in a more beautiful place. The team you have at Elmore are second to none and having worked in hospitality I know how difficult it is to come across such Quality! You have the ultimate dream team! We can't thank you enough for our special day and Elmore will always be a special place for us.

We'd like to say the biggest thank you to all at Elmore Court for giving us the best wedding day we could have hoped for. Kenny & I couldn't stop smiling all day and we'll look back on it with amazing memories & feeling lucky to have got married in such a beautiful place. From our first visit to the stunning venue & all the meetings we had since we knew this was the venue for us. We loved the mix of old school elegance in the main house to the absolutely breathtaking Gillyflower for our reception. All the staff we came in to contact with were relaxed, friendly & chilled which put us in a great mind frame to make those important wedding day decisions. Our initial meetings were with Louise & Leesa & the wedding day itself went like clockwork with Rachel & Beth taking care of the day. Chloe & her team also did a great job on food & drink service. We were so excited for our guests to see Elmore & they were very impressed – with some saying it was the best wedding venue they had been to. The food was delicious and having the evening food served outside the Gillyflower was a nice touch. We were fortunate with the weather & we all enjoyed the inside/outside feel in the Gillyflower with the firepit outside & dance floor inside! We absolutely loved our day & thanks so much again to Team E!

We had a wonderful, wonderful day at Elmore. Simon, Louise and team did a phenomenal job of making sure every ran well during the day and allowed us to just enjoy it! Timings had to shift around, and it was all taken in their stride. Beautiful setting, the personal touch with all the staff, and great food. Highly recommend our vendors as well including Andy from vinotopiawine.co.uk for the wine!

Really cannot praise Anselm and the team enough in the run-up to and on our wedding day. We had an absolutely fantastic time. Everything was perfect, including Simon's prediction for the weather! Team Elmore made everything so straight forward for us: Rachel and Chloe were so enthusiastic about our ideas and worked meticulously to ensure that everything looked exactly as we had hoped and that the event itself ran like clockwork, whilst ensuring everyone felt at home (goes a long way to reducing any nerves on the wedding morning! ?? ) Every one of our guests came back to us with something great to say about Elmore, whether it was to do with the excellent food and drink, the beautiful venue itself or just the lovely, relaxed atmosphere that the place exudes. All of the rooms at the venue are stunning; the scenery and views from the gardens, breath-taking, so much so that we find ourselves admiring the backdrops of our wedding photos almost as much as the loved ones in the foreground! Were we to get married all over again, we honestly cannot imagine that we would want to do it anywhere else. Thank you, all, for making our day so truly memorable and special.

My hubby and i got "hitched" in the July of this year and to say it was amazing would be a total understatement! Team E were incredible and made us feel completely at home, not only on the big day, but throughout the planning and preparation. The grounds are breathtakingly beautiful and the house speaks for it's self oozing with history and charm. I think the fact we chose to have our reception an hour away from our church service says alot for the place. We are just sad we cant re do it all over again and again. Thank you Team E, you are the best!!

We can not say enough good things about this venue. It was absolutely perfect! The venue is an amazing mix with the beautiful and historic house and the more contemporary and stunning Gillyflower (if you can't choose one style why not have both?!) The gardens are also beautiful and there are so many picture perfect spots for photos. Team E were the best, and provided an amazing service, both in the run up and on the day. Absolutely faultless! I couldn't recommend this place more. The catering is done in house and our guests (all big foodies) said that it was the best wedding food they had ever had. Enough said there. You won't find a better venue!

Elmore Court could not have been a more perfect venue for our Wedding. From the moment we walked round the grounds, saw the rooms and 'wowed' as we entered the Gillyflower, we knew it was where we wanted to get married. The team are just fantastic. They are relaxed and genuine and so helpful. They are quick to respond when you contact them, always give useful replies and advice and were wonderful on the day. Nothing was too much to ask. The venue is gorgeous. Our guests commented on this time and time again. It combines the character and grandeur of the old stone built house with the contemporary Gillyflower. It allows you to decorate it and put your own touch on things if you wish. The food, oh the food was delicious, The choice of menus were incredible, and the meal on the day was restaurant standard. I honestly don't think we could praise Elmore Court and the team enough, they made the day everything we hoped for.

We got married at Elmore Court in September and we cannot recommend it highly enough - we loved every minute of visiting, planning and having our wedding day there! It is a beautiful venue and we fell in love with it as soon as we saw it. We loved it's perfect mix of grandeur for the ceremony in the main hall, relaxed elegance in the reception rooms and gardens and incredible party space in the Gillyflower! It really is a magical place and provided so many highlights for our wedding - from the statues and light through the stained glass during our vows to the amazing sound system and psychedelic lights on the dance floor during our Beatles tribute band! The beautiful bedrooms were a treat to get ready in and stay over night in. Chatting with our friend and family by fire pit in the meadow during a gorgeous Cotswolds sunset was also really special. The food was also a real highlight and we got so many compliments from guests saying its the best food they'd had at a wedding! And the team made the whole process so easy and such good fun! They have so much experience and just thought of every little detail so effortlessly - they made everything just happen with such ease and good humour. Everyone at Elmore Court always made us feel special - like they didn't have any other weddings and had all the time in the world for us - and they really made our day so perfect. If you are looking for a magical venue and people that will make planning your wedding a pleasure - Elmore Court is the place and we feel so lucky we were able to get married there!

A message from the father of the Bride................................. I just wanted to write a quick note to thank you all for a truly wonderful and memorable day on Friday. We were blessed with great weather and of course a really superb location. All the staff were excellent and all our guests commented on the quality of the service and food etc. I think Emma and Stuart would like to do it all again and enjoy such wonderful surroundings. Even Father Andrew returned in the evening (to oversee the music of course). A very special day indeed - made even better by the beautiful surroundings. You have a great formula that leaves us all with happy memories.
Chelsea & James
What an excellent and perfect day it was!!!  There is absolutely nothing about the day I would have changed.  Everything went smooth, everyone was happy, and it was without a doubt the best day in our lives.  It was worth all the emails leading up to it haha!!!!  The day was beyond our expectations and we heard nothing but positive and kind remarks from all our guests throughout the day.  Everyone said it was the most personal, intimate, and beautiful ceremony they had ever been to and we couldn't agree more!!!  Not to mention the hospitality throughout the day for all the vendors, waiters/waitresses, Louise, Chloe, Simon, and everyone else apart of the day was beyond a 10 out of 10!!! Polite, attentive, respectful, and kind are just a few of many more I could express how wonderful your staff is and was and for that I can't thank you enough!

We are so glad we chose Elmore Court for our special day. It was the second venue we looked at and we both fell in love with it straight away. Perfect venue with a great team to guide along the way from beginning to finish. We could not have wished for anything more from them. Nothing was too much trouble for them. Very easy to deal with. The main house is beautiful with a sense of going back in time. The contrast with the modern Gillyflower for the wedding reception is so lovely. All our guests loved the setting - we are based in Gloucestershire and many of our local guests had not heard of Elmore before (as it is a relatively new venue). It felt like we had discovered a great secret that we were sharing with our guests. We don’t think it is going to stay a secret for very long! If you are considering Elmore for your wedding, we would wholeheartedly recommend you go for it.
Abi & Sean Davies
Myself and my husband got married at Elmore in September this year and we had the BEST day ever. From start to finish - the first contact with Elmore about our wedding, to the day we got married was faultless. I cannot stress how amazing these guys are - everybody working at Elmore worked tirelessly in the build up and on the day to make it as stress free and smooth running as possible. I did not lift a finger, and they were on hand for everything we could possibly need. They are experienced in making it the best day imaginable and I felt fully comfortable leaving it in their hands. The venue is stunning, the Gillyflower is a dream and anyone that would like a beautiful, rustic setting with a fabulous team look no further!

We got married at Elmore Court at the start of December just gone. As we and a lot of our family+friends live abroad, we wanted to be sure we had the perfect wedding venue for an English winter given most of them had never visited UK before and were basing a lot on seeing Downton Abbey on the tv : )
We visited so many venues trying to pick the perfect one and we almost gave up hope of finding the right one until we saw Elmore Court. We fell in love with the place as soon as we set eyes on it and never looked back on our final choice since! All of our guests have been talking about it since and gone back to their own countries to share their great experience at Elmore Court! It ticked all of our search boxes: beautiful ceremony hall for civil wedding and to give a real sense of occasion, huge bedrooms for main guests, a genuine classy cosy winter look with the big open fires, perfect outside photos with the gorgeous house and gardens, lots of space and facilities (most venues couldn’t accommodate our numbers of 150+), amazing countryside all around the surrounding area, somewhere that could have all guests back for brunch the next day, incredible dinner room and dance floor for the dj after party, late licence until 2am, one hour from Bristol airport for guests flying in and carpark onsite….. the list goes on and on!
The other thing that was really key thing for us was having a venue which was flexible to our needs and allowed us to make our own personal touches. A lot of venues insist it’s their way or the highway which I think is a real shame given it’s each couples own special day, however Elmore is different to other venues. We always dreamt of having a very fun wedding with a sense of occasion – again, Elmore ticked this box from the very start and they were accommodating to all our needs including us bringing in a table tennis table for our guests to play during the cocktail drinks, a crepe nutella station for during the party later in the night, our own ale kegs + pickled eggs for the local lads and our dj was able to combine his equipment with their own sound system and lighting – the tunes and lights kept the dancefloor packed until the very end (along with the huge selection of good drinks that Elmore have at their bar : ) Last and by no means least, all the people who work at Elmore and especially the team that were with us throughout the planning to the wedding itself (Team E as we like to call them now). They all rocked and we would like to say a HUGE THANK YOU for everything they did to make our day perfect. They were totally flexible to our needs during planning and on the day itself, they removed a lot of the stress for us (which helped me A LOT given I had enough on my plate trying to remember my vows and speech in French!), the food was delicious, the food and drinks team were super friendly all the way to 2am….. we just felt like they all fitted the positive and fun wedding atmosphere we were looking for which made everything awesome. Thank you so much again!

Our wedding day on the 1st May 2017 was made even more special by choosing Elmore Court as our reception venue. We loved the food, the staff, the gardens, the lights, the dance floor & the buildings. A mix of old and new. You really need to visit to fully appreciate this gem of a venue. You won't need look any further. The staff were so organised and helpful, not only on the day itself, but during the planning stage. We would not change a thing. Our many International guests in particular were impressed with the stunning buildings and location. It captured exactly what they felt an 'English Wedding' should be like. We would not hesitate in recommending this venue to others. We could not fault it!
Alison and Declan Flood
Our hearts were set as soon as we visited Elmore. It’s brimming with personality! It felt homely yet grand, historic yet modern, quirky yet romantic, and embodied everything we were looking for in a venue. There were many spaces we could use throughout the day, and it would have been a fantastic day even if it had rained. As it turned out, the sun was beaming and we celebrated in the vast grounds, as well as inside the gorgeous court and Gillyflower.

Elmore is a stunning venue, but it’s the people that really make it exceptional. Team E were incredibly happy, helpful and friendly, and made us feel as though anything was possible. That it was our day to do as we pleased. There was no question too big or silly for them. They made us feel relaxed and excited about our day.

The food tasted phenomenal, and there were lots of it! Safe to say our guests were kept happy with full bellies.

Thank you so much for making our day so special and memorable. Many of our guests commented of how lovely the entire day was and how intriguing Elmore Court is. A couple of the guests were even kindly taken on a private tour during the evening reception (at their own request). Booking our wedding with Elmore was by far the best wedding decision we made, and we had the time of our lives.

Thank you!
Hannah Turner
Elmore Court was the last of many wedding venues we looked at in our search for the perfect venue, and it certainly was the case that we saved the best until last. We live 15 minutes away from the venue, and until my sister suggested we visited Elmore, we hadn’t even heard of it…
The location itself is idyllic, overlooking beautiful countryside and the River Severn. Elmore Court’s grounds are even more impressive. We married on a sunny April day, and the blossom trees were looking their best! Although the grounds and setting are impressive, it’s the house, gillyflower and team that really blew us away.
The house has been beautifully restored, each room is so individual, so fresh, but so in keeping with the age of the building. The colours are quirky, the staircases are wonky, the bathrooms are beautiful and the soft furnishings are luxurious!
The gillyflower speaks for itself, it is so simple but leaves such a massive impression. We loved the huge windows, the light drops from the roof, the ability to make it completely your own. The dancefloor was a wonderful surprise tucked behind the curtain, so spacious and cleverly designed.
It was clear to us from our very first visit how much thought and planning has gone into making this venue first class.
The food was delicious and immaculately presented. The service for dinner was second to none, the team were polite, inconspicuous and no glass was left empty – it seems like a small detail, but it makes such a huge difference. Stacey coordinated this team, and she was wonderful. We, and many of our guests were singing her praises in the days that followed. Nothing was too much trouble, and we felt so looked after.
I could write forever about everything we loved, but my parents summed it up perfectly, it felt like ‘a taste of heaven’. It certainly helped that we had wonderful weather, amazingly supportive friends & family and fantastic suppliers, but we owe a massive amount of gratitude to the fabulous Team E. They made us feel like their home was our home. We felt incredibly relaxed from the moment we met Simon back in January 2016, to the moment we sat around the breakfast table on 23rd April 2017 with 35 of our nearest and dearest and reminisced about the day before.
The team made our whole engagement and wedding experience such a dream, we loved every moment and are SO thankful to them! We only wish we could do it all over again!

Everything about Elmore was perfect. The stunning venue, the delicious food, the exceptional friendly easy going service of Simon, Adele and the team. We were allowed to customise everything from the decorations to the menu and wine which we sourced ourselves and yet the staff at Elmore were so efficient at running the day we had nothing to do but enjoy it. Adele made the Gillyflower look even better than I had imagined (we provided her with all of the decorations ourselves and a very poorly drawn diagram of how we visualised it) We would highly recommend this venue to anyone wanting to get married in style without any stress.
Charlie & Daniel
Perfect!
Elmore Court was perfect for us - the first and only venue we viewed. A special mix of historic, modern, quirky, eco-friendly and romantic! The team could not have been more lovely, more accommodating, more willing to help, more kind, more flexible, more calm. We really didn't have to think about anything on the day - it all just happened as if by magic.

Our guests all had a fantastic time and didn't stop complimenting the fantastic venue. Everything was absolute luxury from the pristine rooms, luscious green grounds, the softest bed linen and the most delicious food. I would highly recommend Elmore Court - what a perfect place.
Laureen and Matt
This is a properly brilliant wedding venue. Facilities are faultless - you get a real wow factor when you arrive, some great picture opportunities, and a purpose-built, modern, well-equipped room for the dinner/party in the Gillyflower. The food really is excellent - the scotch egg canapés were very popular, and everyone said the meal was one of the best they’ve had at a wedding.
The guests who are lucky enough to stay there overnight were all thrilled with their room. A lot of thought went into everything, even the breakfast served the next day which allowed everyone to have a giggle the morning after but also recover with some seriously good fruit/cooked breakfast/coffee. And the ability for the bride and bridesmaids to stay on-site the night before in the (again nicely done) back building was really helpful.
Probably the best thing is the service provided by the staff – right from the moment we’ve booked they were responsive to everything we asked for, really nice to us and attentive on the day, just massively taking the stress out of everything. It feels like a well-oiled machine and you’re in the hands of experts.
There was only one minor glitch on the day, which was the volume of the playlist over dinner was barely audible when the curtains were closed. That was hardly the end of the world and I am sure they will have fixed it - but if you want music with your dinner I would recommend you ask them about it. Of course when the real party started the sound was excellent.
Overall, just get married there, we had the best day.
Rachel and Ed
We adore Elmore Court. We had the most perfect day. The venue is incredible, but even more wonderful are the people who work there.
We didn't have a care in the world on the day, we were so looked after by Leesa and the whole team.
Our guests loved it and many have said how beautiful Elmore is. We have to agree!
We feel very lucky and will treasure the memories of our day for the rest of our lives together.

We got married at Elmore Court in May & I’ve been putting off writing a review for so long because it’s just so hard to describe exactly how amazing & magical our day was! From the moment we pulled up through those beautiful gates it felt like home & it only got better & better. So many of the things I imagined when planning a wedding were conflicting yet Elmore ticked all of them – we wanted to get married in a traditional setting yet we also wanted to be able to throw a huge party, we wanted the setting to be impressive & grand yet whimsical & unusual, we wanted homely yet quirky food (cue insanely good lamb & sticky toffee pudding for the wedding breakfast & lobster rolls in the evening)… It literally ticked EVERY box.

When we first visited Elmore, the second set of newly renovated bedrooms weren’t quite confirmed yet & although we booked our date in on the spot, I felt like this was the only compromise we had made. Shortly after, the team told us that planning permission had been granted & we would have enough room for all our family & wedding party to stay over on the night of our wedding. This was when we started to think that there was nothing Team E couldn’t do! Everything we could have possibly requested or wanted was met with an immediate ‘yes’ & even when we really started pushing the boundaries, Team E still found a way.

I’m sure whichever member of the team looks after you while you plan your wedding at Elmore is amazing, however we were so lucky to be in Rachel’s very safe hands. We immediately felt like we’d known her for years & sometimes without even really explaining she just knew what we wanted. On the day she was incredible & as per her promise we didn’t once check the time. Everything ran like clockwork almost to the point that I felt like a guest at my own wedding! From greeting us on our first visit, to helping me out the car when I arrived on our big day to our final goodbye on the night she was amazing. Team E, you have a special one there!

Following our wedding I think we received more thank you cards than we gave, which is testament to how brilliant Elmore Court & the team really are. There is no review that we could write that would do Elmore & the amazing Team E justice. If everyone could get married here they should! Thank you Rachel & Elmore for giving us a day far beyond all expectations, we will never forget you xxx

We got married at Elmore Court in September this year, and it quite simply, was the best day of our lives. From the moment we saw the venue online, we knew it was special. The images of the Gillyflower which blew us away initially did not actually do the space justice as it was so much better in real life. The house combines all of the best of its old heritage, with a modern, cool but lux feel - exactly the type of thing we had been looking for. The whole team are amazing - Louise helped tirelessly throughout all of the planning stages, from coordinating our suppliers, to dealing with our gazillion dietary requirements, and was the most calming influence on the day. No request was too big - thanks Simon for building our DJ console! And a huge thanks to the night manager who very kindly accommodated our overnight guests - particularly those a bit worse for wear ;-) I also have to mention the food - it was absolutely delicious, every single course, and we still get friends commenting on how much they enjoyed our camembert starter. My husband organised a light show as a surprise, and the Elmore team noticed that it would be dark for all of our guests to walk out to, so found ways of lighting up the path with lights without our knowledge. It is that attention to detail and level of care that makes this the perfect venue and we would highly recommend it and the team to anyone considering it! Thank you Elmore Court, you made our day magical. We'll never forget it.
Megan & Oliver
Elmore Court is an absolutely amazing place to get married - a stunning house, combining historic detail with modern eco charm at the Gillyflower; outrageously well-appointed and luxurious bedrooms; wide open skies and rambling gardens. Crucially, the staff are absolutely fantastic: highly relaxed and professional, they welcome all ideas and make everything smooth in the planning process and the day itself: it felt easy to plan a wedding with their lightest of guiding touches. Katrina was a brilliant coordinator. The autumn afternoon light flooding into the hall made our wedding ceremony absurdly beautiful, and we could not have been happier with our choice of venue or recommend it highly enough.

Our experience with Elmore and its team of talented folk wasn't just our wedding day on the 3rd of November 2017, it began from our first viewing 14 months before this, and continues still as we reminisce and share our memories. We’ve only just seen our wedding photos, and have to wait another 10 or so weeks to see our video edit, so the journey isn't really over - we've got plenty more sweet things to unwrap, as well as many years of anniversaries to celebrate.

We were made to feel truly special by Team E, who for us, have redefined customer service by striking a perfect balance between utter professionalism and warm-hearted friendliness. Emails were answered promptly and meetings managed around our impossibly busy schedules. Despite all of this business conducted so efficiently and transparently, we were always greeted with warm hugs and genuine excitement for us and our big day. If we hadn't known better, we might have thought ours was the only wedding at Elmore all year, and the staff were just as eager as we were to make it happen as we were. Never were we made to feel anything other than utterly exclusive, not once double booked, or made second priority to another celebration. The only giveaway that there might be a few other weddings going on was how well polished and practiced the delivery of service was on the day, and that just maybe, Team E had done this a few times before they got around to us.

All the little details that fill the house from bottom to top; the furnishings, the sound, the light, the fixtures, fittings, pieces of humour and personality and history, they all exude thoughtfulness and impeccable attention to detail. Elmore is a delight on all the senses, and jam packed full of lovely surprises.

We didn't approach our wedding with ambitions of being anything other than ourselves, and Elmore provided the setting for this to happen, and flexibility enough for our personalities to shine through. Katrina, who helped shape our first draft of vague details into the vibrant, joyful and organised celebration it was, couldn't have done more to make it so. Above and beyond expectation, she was on hand always to answer all of our questions (including the ones we hadn't thought to ask!) among a hundred other helpful gestures, she fixed a buttonhole for a shaky groom, made sure Naomi held her bouquet in just the right way.

The whole picture, is a reflection of the abilities of the team at Elmore. To the family who share their home, to the office team busily organizing, caterers, bartenders, housekeepers, gardeners, fixers and menders, we are grateful for their skill and efforts. It is evident that Elmore Court is led by passion, creativity, kindness and ambition. As helpful as they were, when we had everything we needed and all was just right, Team E stepped back to lend us their beautiful space, allowing us and our guests enjoy it as if it were our own home, comfortable enough to enjoy all of our day without worrying about the details or timings.

We have been overwhelmed by the outpouring of love, cards, gifts and comments from our guests, described by one friend simply as The Best Day. Over and over, we have heard how beautiful, how wonderful, how tasty everything was.

Top tips for anyone who weds at Elmore and who party like we do:
1. Book an immediate honeymoon (or mini-moon at least..) it took Naomi nearly a week to get the backcomb out of her hair.
2. Pack a pair of slippers for the morning, dancing feet were not ready for shoes.
3. Do not forget to eat, the food is incredible.

What an incredible day! We knew we’d secured a unique, intimate and magical venue (and boy did it live up to it) but come the day it was Leesa and the team’s expertise that ensured the our wedding ran smoothly and was so effortlessly enjoyable for us and our guests.

Team E's experience shone through at every corner and if ever we needed something, Leesa appeared, as if summoned telepathically, with a huge smile to quietly guide us and make sure we were able to enjoy every aspect of our wedding.

The care and attention to detail was astonishing and we cannot thank Team E enough for their part in making our once in a lifetime day perfect.

Our only disappointment is that we can’t do it all again but then perhaps we’ll be invited to come back and celebrate someone else’s matrimony; as we’ve sung your praises to just about everyone we know (and some we don’t), the chances are good.

For now we will continue to follow the story of Elmore from a distance, fondly, with our precious memories of a magical day.

We had the most perfect day at Elmore Court and would highly recommend it to others.
The whole venue has a natural beauty to it and makes you feel very special to be able to have your big day there.
We were welcomed at every turn by the team and our fabulous wedding co-ordinator Katrina from our many planning sessions to the day itself. Nothing was too much trouble and they had great ideas to share as well. We loved every second we spent there.
The venue brings together a great mix of traditional and modern with the manor house and the Gillyflower and the grounds are gorgeous.
In our opinion it was worth every single penny. Thank you for a wonderful wedding experience.

There was never really going to be any other choice than Elmore Court for our wedding! From the day we looked around to the numerous wedding fayres/ oomskas we attended during the amazing 18 month build up to the big day- we knew Elmore was 'the one'!
It is a truly stunning venue and was the most magical backdrop to the best day of our lives! It's such an amazing place, that t's almost a bonus that the staff are absolutely fantastic too. Rachel our event co-ordinator was extremely helpful, organised and down to earth. She was a pleasure to deal with while we planned our wedding and was always kind enough to indulge our regular need to come back to see Elmore again.
Extending the magic of the day by getting to stay overnight in The Coach House made it even more special and we had a beautiful, calm evening with our best friends the night before the wedding. It is a great bridal preparation space and we enjoyed our time there immensely.
The food and service throughout the day was second to none and all our guests commented that the food was not just great for wedding food but really excellent food. And there were many chefs and people in the restaurant industry amongst our guests. We were all very impressed with how everything ran like clockwork.
Nothing was ever too much trouble for the team and we didn't feel rushed at any point throughout the day.
If we could do it all again we would but we both have amazing memories to last a lifetime. Thank you to everyone at Elmore Court for giving us our dream wedding.
