Facilities and Capacity

Elmore Court is a historic house that was built to entertain. Owned by the Guise family, it was used as the owner's party pad for over half a century before being entirely refurbished for weddings and events in 2013. The careful upgrading of Elmore Court has continued over the years with the addition of a stunning soundproof reception venue, The Gillyflower. Made from rammed earth and materials gathered from the land, it provides a unique setting for you and up to 200 guests to dine and dance the night away. The Victorian walled garden has been revamped and is now growing much of the seasonal vegetables and herbs used for wedding plates. Rewilding part of the estate is the next step in sustainability, and long-horn cows are now happily grazing the wildlands. The wedding party can use the newly renovated Coach House as a space to get ready and relax before the event begins. The house has 16 well-appointed bedrooms and can sleep up to 35 guests.

Services Offered

Elmore Court is an exclusive use venue that strives to provide an unforgettable wedding experience. You'll work with their experienced events team to ensure every detail is accounted for throughout the planning process. A day-of coordinator will help manage every aspect of your special day. Venue rentals include use of the 16 bedrooms, delicious in-house catering using home-grown produce, fire pit and benches in the Gillyflower Meadow, and use of the Coach House the night before your event.

Most magical day ever!

Elmore Court is named one of the best wedding venues for a reason! Not only is the venue itself gorgeous but it’s the people who make up their amazing team that makes Elmore top notch! From Sue in accounting, to the culinary team, to our amazing coordinators Annie, Katrina and Lily, Elmore made the stress of wedding planning minimal, helping us every step of the way.
All who work at Elmore are exceptionally professional, crazy efficient, and wonderfully personal. It made our wedding day go so smoothly it felt like a dream.

We cannot thank everyone at Elmore for making our wedding day the most magical day ever!

Our whole experience with Elmore Court was nothing short of fantastic from start to finish. From our first viewing with the lovely Sammy to the actual day ran so smoothly by the incredible Annie and her Team. All our correspondence with Annie and the wider team were replied to quickly and nothing ever seemed too much trouble. They accommodated our planning meetings around our busy work schedules and made everything very easy. The day itself was amazing! We were well looked after and Annie's gentle approach made us feel so calm throughout. The whole team helped helped bring everything to life and set everything up so beautifully. The House really felt like ours for the day and our guests commented on how beautiful it was, how attentive the staff were and how incredible the food was too! The venue really reflected the style we were aiming for of a classic and elegant Cotswold Wedding! A huge thank you to the team who really gave us the best wedding we could have ever hoped for!

The perfect wedding venue

We got married at Elmore Court this June and we cannot recommend it enough. From the moment we first saw the house driving through the stunning gates, we knew it was special and that we couldn't see ourselves getting married anywhere else. My husband and I are both lovers of history and we wanted a venue with character and charm and Elmore had that in spades and was known as the party house for a reason!
We booked it for a Saturday and Sunday as we had family and friends travelling from all across the UK as well as from further afield and we wanted to spend as much time as we could at Elmore.
From beginning to end everyone we've dealt with at Elmore has been endlessly professional but made us feel like old friends in every interaction. We had Alice as our co-ordinator and she was absolutely brilliant! She was so calm and helpful and ensured the day went smoothly. The attention to detail is second to none at Elmore, the whole time there felt like you were at home not a venue.
The house speaks for itself with how stunning it is and we loved that when we were shown around they were able to tell us stories about certain rooms and of the house which made it so much more personable.
The Gillyflower which is their purpose-built function area at the back of the house doesn't steal the spotlight from the house and blends in beautifully with the surroundings but is a showstopper in its own right. They really thought of everything when building it. From being eco-conscious and using materials from the estate to build it down to the sound system there isn't a detail missed.
The food at Elmore was STUNNING. So many guests told us how much they had enjoyed the food and that it was the best wedding meal they'd had. They were accommodating to all the dietary requirements and allergies of our guests. The breakfasts in the morning were also incredibly delicious.
On the Sunday we invited guests back and we had a day in the garden playing rounders and other games. We also had an inflatable assault course put up in the field at the back by the Gillyflower which was great and adults and kids alike had so much fun! For the evening meal, we had platters of cheese and charcuterie in the walled garden which was amazing. It was so pretty and peaceful listening to the gentle breeze through the trees and the chatter of everyone there it was idyllic. When the sun started to set we went inside and sat in the drawing room and stayed up until the early hours playing some intense games of Mafia. It was so cosy and inviting and the perfect place to gather at the end of the day.
As I said at the start, I can't recommend Elmore enough. The house is magical and the people who work there make it even more so. Thank you all so much for everything!

Wow, where can I even start! The professionalism and kind hearted nature of ‘Team E’ started from our initial viewing! Throughout the whole planning process Alex was on hand to answer my many questions! And nothing was ever too much trouble! The whole team were absolutely incredible on our day, so attentive but let us absorb everything. Ensured there was time for just us as a couple which was very welcomed to breathe! Everything ran perfectly, and the food was just Devine! Highly recommend Elmore Court to anyone, a stunning venue, amazing grounds and a team who go above and beyond! Thank you all at Team E and a special thanks to Alex who guided us along the way.

Magical place!

From the moment we came for a first look at Elmore Court we knew it was the place for us - it was the only venue that actually made me feel tearful as we looked around it. The house is just beautiful, the main hall with its magical light makes for the most breathtaking ceremony room, every single bedroom for overnight guests was stunning, and it was fantastic to have friends and family staying in the house and feeling like proper house guests rather than hotel guests. Team E made sure absolutely everything ran so smoothly on the day, with so many of our guests commenting on the great team, the beautiful surrounds and, especially, the magnificent food (everything, from reception canapés through to the cooked breakfast served for house guests the morning after, was impeccable). I wish we could go back and do it all again!

Elmore Court is the perfect wedding venue!

My partner and I celebrated our wedding at Elmore Court last summer and just wanted to recognise and thank the team for realising the perfect wedding for us and truly the best day of our lives!

We really appreciated our event coordinator Katrina, and all of the team's efforts leading up to the day and the day itself, and accommodating our various food and other requests!

It really was a special day and everyone shared how much they enjoyed celebrating with us at Elmore Court. The team provided an exceptional and friendly service as well which was consistent throughout our three day stay (we had the extended Thursday package).

Would highly recommend choosing Elmore as your wedding venue, you will not regret it!

Amazing!!!

What can I say, the wedding venue,  staff,  just everything was perfect. From the moment we booked our wedding we felt like nothing was ever too much trouble for Kat, Alex and the whole Elmore team, we really felt like we could ask anything and they'd help and accommodate us! They kept in touch and the experience throughout was 10/10. On the day the staff were so helpful,  everything was perfectly organised and we had the bestest most beautiful wedding ever. Thank you so much team E!!! xx

We could not have wished for more

We had the most incredible fusion wedding at Elmore Court and we couldn’t have asked for anything more. From start to finish, Alex and the whole team at Elmore Court were simply outstanding.

Our East meets West themed Wedding required a little sensitivity and some complexity, but nothing was ever an issue for the hardworking, passionate and hilarious team at Elmore.

From our very first visit, to the day after the wedding, we felt looked after, listened to, and the team at Elmore were always working to provide the best service possible. Friendly, extremely organised and always a step ahead, we felt in safe and comfortable hands throughout.

On the big day, we had a selection of beautifully prepared Indian canapés, a stunning 5 course Western wedding breakfast, and Anselm’s cellar provided a beautiful selection of fine wines to accompany the meal.

The Gillyflower is a stunning space to have the wedding breakfast and it converted into the most perfect dance floor later in the evening!

Elmore was our home for 48 hours. The team made it feel like our home. They wanted us to feel like it was ours for this special moment, and as a result, it will always hold a special place in our heart. The place is magnificent, steeped in history, but it is also warm, welcoming and a fantastic place to make a host of new memories to last a lifetime.

We couldn’t recommend it more.

Perfection

Couldn’t have asked for a better venue! Annie and the team were perfect and went above and beyond my wildest dreams. Elmore is beautiful but the staff there take the experience to another level, I felt like the only bride in the world and I couldn’t imagine getting married anywhere else. Genuinely couldn’t recommend this venue enough!!
