About Elmore Court

Elmore, Gloucestershire
Gloucestershire, GL2 3NT

Situated in the heart of Gloucestershire’s countryside, Elmore Court is the unique exclusive award-winning wedding venue that you’ve been looking for. The beautiful 750-year-old, grade II listed country house has been a family home since 1274 and now opens its doors for your special day.

There are now a maximum of 16 bedrooms on site for you and your guests with a total potential capacity of 40 people. 

The latest addition to the unique offerings at Elmore Court is the specially refurbished Coach House.  This is an external building, separate from the main house with it's own driveway. This has been specially re-designed to allow a Bridal party of up to 6 people to come and stay the night before the wedding so they can wake up on site and begin the all important preparations before moving over to the main house for the special day.  Thus removing the need to travel on the day of the wedding. 

The largest reception room on offer is The Hall; the grand room is stylishly decorated and can accommodate up to 200 guests (150 seated) for your ceremony. The Drawing Room at Elmore is also licensed to hold civil ceremonies for up to 55 guests. With its deep sofas and grand fireplace, the Drawing Room is the perfect relaxing location. You also have full access to the English country gardens which provide a fantastic backdrop for your photos.

If you’re planning a more traditional church service, just a mile down the road is the beautiful Church of St John the Baptist.

The ‘Gillyflower’ is hidden away behind the main house and is a pleasant surprise for your guests. The award-winning reception space is truly romantic and the perfect setting for up to 200 of your guests to celebrate into the night. The room is sound-proofed which is perfect as you’ll want to make the most of the state-of-the-art sound equipment available. Outside, there is a relaxing setting complete with roaring fire and candlelit surroundings.

The experienced kitchen team at Elmore are excellent and offer you total flexibility with your menu. The team work closely with the Estate’s gardeners to make use of the freshest produce possible. There is a fabulous selection of drinks on offer, or you can supply your own.

The fantastic team of event managers will ensure that the day is exactly what you want.

My only wish is that we could do it all over again
Venue Service

By Kate Stephens, on 06 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 28 Sep 2018

My husband and I chose to visit Elmore after seeing a picture of the Gillyflower at night time. After that, i knew there was no other venue I’d rather say “i do” to. Elmore is the perfect destination for couples who want something special and something extraordinary. Modern yet old, cosy yet bright, social yet intimate, classic yet fun, romantic yet celebratory. A perfect cocktail of contradictions. Here are just SOME of the other reasons we love Elmore: 1. Team E (the Elmore staff). From co-ordinators to back of house to waiters to barmen… all were easy to work with, welcoming, helpful and kind. They made our planning experience stress free. No questions were too silly, and no requests too much. 2. The food. When i asked friends/family about their favourite part of our wedding, i expected them to say “when you guys tied the knot!” but no. Time after time, the answer was “THE FOOD”. Delicious and hearty, we couldn’t have asked for anything better in terms of quality, taste, presentation and QUANTITY. 3. The bedrooms. If you are considering staying in the house the night afterwards with family&friends… DO IT! Our guests loved them. Not only are the rooms comfortable and clean but all individual with a beautiful mix of colours, spaces and styles. Plus it comes with an incredible breakfast. 4. The Coach House. Elmore have recently transformed a former coach house into bridal suite HEAVEN. I stayed with my bridesmaids and had a great time getting excited for the following day. We cannot say enough about how fantastic the day was. Elmore go above and beyond to make you feel special. The team at Elmore nailed it. And we had the best wedding imaginable.

Perfect from start to finish

Quite simply, Elmore and Team E are fantastic and our amazing wedding planner Leesa went the extra mile from start to finish. The ceremony room as you walk in is very bright, the stained-glass window and angel sculptures are real features. The rooms downstairs have roaring fireplaces for the winter and big comfy sofas. The dining room for breakfast the next morning is full of portraits of owner Anselm’s ancestors who are fundamental to the history of Elmore. As we were shown around the immaculate bedrooms it was explained that Anselm himself had picked the décor for each room, everything from furniture to curtains and cushions. Each room has their own unique stunning features – a copper bath tub in one room, a bed frame older than America, quirky pineapple prints and bright colours in others. As we left the main house and entered the Gillyflower it was definitely the best party room we had ever seen. The huge space is neutral in tone and décor, meaning that we could get really creative with how we’d want to style the space. The large windows overlooking the fields have a lovely view and let in so much light. The dancefloor with colourful lighting and funktion one speaker system was also very impressive. Aside from the venue itself, Team E were very warm and friendly. We loved the fact that it is a family business, and super flexible. The food was exceptional and described by our guests as the best wedding food they’ve ever had. We had THE best day and could not have asked for anything more, I would not hesitate to recommend Elmore Court as a truly fantastic wedding venue in every way, made all the more special by the awesome Team E!

The Wrights Wedding Review
Venue Service

By Niamh Wright & Chris Wright, on 13 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 23 Aug 2018

This is one of the only reviews we have ever written but felt compelled to for Elmore Court because the entire experience was so, so good and really ensured that on our wedding day we had the best day ever. What we loved more than anything was that every request we made, no matter how big or small, the response from Katrina or Beth was always ‘no problem, whatever is best for you two’ which took away so much of the stress. It is also a refreshing change when compared to the mentality at other venues we saw and things we’ve heard from friends who have been married elsewhere. The entire process was so enjoyable from the very first show round, through to food tasting, re-visting the venue (multiple times) and then of course the day itself. We always felt very well looked after and that they were on hand to guide us through the process and answer any questions as their experience is extensive (and ours was obviously non existent!). We stayed at Elmore Court for 2 nights and the attention to detail was fantatsic. Every single one of our 40 odd guests felt well and truly spoiled and could not believe the size, quality and character of their rooms and the communal areas. The Gillyflower truly is a spectactular venue and is undoubtedly the showstopper of the piece, with the backdrop of the fields out the back making it such a special place with the perfect countryside feel that we were looking for. We cannot stress how much we would recommend Elmore Court to get married…we just wish we could do it all over again! Thank you so, so much to Katrina, Beth and the rest of ‘Team E’. Take us back!!!

My Husband and I got married at Elmore in August, It truly was such an excellent and perfect day, and I am already lost in beginning this review, as to try and put just how brilliant everything at Elmore is, seems a real challenge, but here goes! To start with, I have to jump straight to our wedding breakfast, which is prepared on-site by Elmore and was absolutely excellent! My husband and I are big foodies, and the food at Elmore was something we had heard loads about, and I have to say, we were not at all disappointed! We opted for the food sharing option, as we figured this would be a good way to get people socialising. The lamb main course we picked out is probably one of my favourite memories of the day! and I still have guests who attended the wedding by speaking to me about the food when we meet up! Truly, truly, truly fantastic! Louise, Elmore's liaison between the catering and us was also incredibly helpful in helping us sort out individual dietary needs, and I would like to wish her a very personal thank you! Another personal thank you that I need to make is to Adele, who was our wedding coordinator for the day and in the lead up. Adele truly was a god send, and her kindness, professionalism and organisation really helped put my mind at ease, and turned what I thought was going to be a very stressful day into a day of absolute bliss, and made it all seem so easy (how is that possible?!). Team E, we can't thank you enough, Elmore Court will always hold a special place in our heart as a place of love, beauty and happiness! J&C Taylor

As soon as we visited Elmore and met our fantastic Wedding Coordinator, Kat, we knew that we were going to be looked after. She helped us plan the perfect wedding that was everything that we wanted. The Elmore staff were fantastic from start to finish and were always available, either before via email or on the day to help. Our guests commented how lovely the entire day was and this was down to Elmore! The coach house was an incredible addition to our day as myself and the bridesmaids could stay the night before and get ready there the morning of the wedding. If you're considering the accommodation for guests for the night of the wedding, take it! We all enjoyed a few late night drinks after the wedding and it was lovely to all enjoy breakfast again the morning after. Thank you Team E, We just wish we could do it all again!

We had a truly unforgettable day and wedding at the stunning Elmore Court. From the moment we booked until the second we left we were made to feel so welcome and looked after. The staff and team are incredible, and cannot do enough for you, especially our wedding coordinator, Adele who took care of every last detail and allowed us to relax and enjoy our special day. The reception, Gillyflower, grounds, rooms and food are beautiful. We cannot recommend highly enough and cannot wait to come back one day.

Perfect Venue
Venue Service

By Luke & Melane, on 24 Aug 2018Date of Wedding - 13 Jul 2018

Elmore Court was the most perfect place for our wedding and we would recommend it without reservation. Clearly the house and grounds are fabulous but it is the people behind it that set Elmore apart. Our main point of contact was Rachel, whose praise we cannot sing highly enough: professional, reliable and responsive, the list could go on. Nothing was ever too big an ask and she was available whenever we needed her. On the day itself, she ran the show from behind the scenes with military style precision, all the while projecting a cool, calm and collected front. We had changeable weather, and Elmore really came in to its own. Whilst it rained, we were able to use the gorgeous rooms inside; when the sun came up, guests had the choice of the big front lawn or the formal side lawns; and then the Gillyflower (with its huge dance floor and Funktion-One sound system) is the perfect place to party the night away. We found it hard to decide on a final menu given the wide range of options and it wasn’t made much easier by the initial tasting, because almost everything tasted as good as it sounded. However, we were delighted with our final choice, which we paired with one wine from Elmore and one of our wines. Again, this shows how flexible Elmore are in terms of allowing you to mix and match and not sting you with hidden fees. We were extremely happy to be able to offer accommodation to 40+ of our guests in the sumptuous rooms of the house, to carry on the festivities in the living room after our other guests had left, and for everyone to congregate for a delicious breakfast in the morning.

Superb
Venue Service

By Krystina and Luke Jones, on 09 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 06 Jul 2018

Fantastic venue, great food, great space, a blank canvas for you to really add what you want to for your own wedding. I personally do not like venues where you are having to cram all activities into one room - the ceremony, dinner, dancing etc. Elmore court gives you not only one room for each of the above but the whole grounds to also entertain. The ceremony room was so romantic and the perfect size, being able to then have pictures throughout the grounds afterwards for canapés and drinking was fantastic for socialising. The gillyflower is such a superb space you don't feel crammed in. Then the dancefloor is another level! The staff went above and beyond expectations, I would love to do it all again.

The perfect day and perfect service!

We had our heart set on Elmore after seeing it in a BRIDES supplement. We didn't have an appointment, but chanced it and drove down there. The team welcomed us with open arms, we booked that day - and didn't look back once! Adele was AMAZING. We couldn't have done it without her and the day was a huge success without any issues.

June Wedding
Venue Service

By Liane & Andy, on 08 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 03 Jun 2018

We got married in Elmore in June and the day surpassed all our expectations. There was nothing that didn't go exactly how we wanted it to and everyone at Elmore went above and beyond to make it so. For us, Elmore was unique in being able to fuse the formality and grandeur of such an historic house with the relaxed, laid back vibe created through the more modern Gillyflower and it's surrounds. And the food, which was so important to us, was fab! Elmore's flexibility in not enforcing the use of preferred suppliers and allowing external caterers (we had a taco truck during our drinks reception) was also a massive plus for us. We would not hesitate in recommending Elmore & it's wonderful team. There are not enough superlatives to describe how great it is!

Elmore Court was the perfect setting.

We couldn't recommend Elmore Court enough. We were looked after so well by our personal wedding co-ordinator Katrina - from every visit during the planning stages to the actual day itself. We were always welcome to pop in and have another look around. In our opinion it was worth every penny. The grounds and house are beautiful and our guests loved how Elmore brings together a great mix of traditional and modern english countryside.
