With its beautiful Cotswold stone exterior, manicured grounds and stunning views of the Gloucestershire countryside, luxurious five-star hotel Ellenborough Park certainly makes for one of the UK’s most impressive wedding venues.
The 16th century manor house hotel is situated on the outskirts of Cheltenham and has been lovingly restored to offer brides and grooms a spectacular setting to host their big days.
Ellenborough Park is licensed to hold civil ceremonies and couples can choose from The Gallery, suitable for up to 120 guests, which features a double height ceiling with a mezzanine level and opens out onto the pretty courtyard gardens – perfect for post-ceremony drinks.
The De la Bere Court, situated in the main house and benefitting from a majestic vaulted glass atrium, can welcome from 30 up to 140 guests for the wedding breakfast and evening reception, while there’s also the option to have a marquee on the lawns for larger numbers.
For those wanting more intimate ceremonies the choices include The Library and The Royalist which are licensed for 18 and 12 guests respectively, with both featuring original oak panelling and period fireplaces.
Both rooms can also host wedding breakfasts with The Library able to accommodate 20 guests and The Royalist 12.
Ellenborough Park is also available for exclusive hire offering couples use of the entire hotel, including bedrooms, dining rooms and banqueting suites with the option to add on use of the spa.
The striking 19th century stone gazebo can also be used for brides and grooms wanting to say their vows in an even more special setting at the venue.
Couples can choose their catering from a selection of menus, with an emphasis on local, seasonal ingredients, which have been created by our Executive Chef.
Prior to the wedding, the bride and groom can visit Ellenborough Park to sample their selected menus and discuss wine choices with the expert sommeliers.
The hotel offers 61 large rooms and suites, designed by Nina Campbell, to welcome your wedding party and includes a luxury room, complete with Champagne, for the newlyweds.
