About

100 to 250 Guests

An unusual country house wedding venue like no other, this Grade II listed mansion holds over 850 years of family history within it's walls, and is yet wildly young at heart. Sustainably run, consistently rated 5 stars and entirely surrounded by stunning countryside (part of which is now rewilding!) Elmore Court is owned by Anselm Guise, founder of Glade festival and Nano records.

The historic house was built to entertain, being the Guise family'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 sustainably built sound proof reception venue ‘the Gillyflower’ (made entirely from rammed earth and materials gathered from the land.)The Victorian walled garden has been totally revamped and is now growing much of the seasonal veg for wedding plates as well as herbs and other deliciousness.

Rewilding part of the estate is the next step in sustainability, and long horn cows are now happily grazing the wildlands here. Next will be the building of treehouses for forest stays, along with a ceremony space for woodland weddings! To be completed by early 2023.

As a country house wedding venue, it's pretty close to perfect with several brilliant options for the ceremony and reception including the historic and magical Great Hall, a Norman church described as being one of England’s prettiest and so much more both outside and in.

The house has 16 elegantly and comfortably designed bedrooms and can sleep 35 guests of the married couple. Included in the hiring of the venue is the newly renovated Coach House which brides or grooms have access to for the night before the big day, a delightful pamper pad to relax and enjoy some spa treatments with select friends and family before waking up at Elmore Court for hair, makeup and a small glass of something perhaps...

Elmore Court is an incredibly well thought through venue for exclusive weddings of up to 200 people and sometimes beyond.

People love it and it delivers.

    Absolutely perfect

    As soon as we saw Elmore Court we knew it was the venue for us. The venue is perfect mix of old and new and everything feels so well thought out and special.

    We were one of the unfortunate couples who had to reschedule their wedding 3 times (thanks, Covid) but Elmore Court were so responsive and helpful and did what they could for us.

    The staff are amazing. So on it. Nothing goes unnoticed and our wedding day flowed seamlessly. They even whisked us away for a moment to see our dining room before guests enetered to make sure we had a moment together and got to try all of our canapes as the bride and groom usually don't even get to see the food at the drinks reception as you're so busy talking and taking pictures!

    Our wedding coordinator knew all the details of our day and made sure everything went to plan - including all the dressing and decoration just as we wanted it.

    Our wedding was a hugely special day and we have Elmore Court to thank for a lot of that.

    Perfect Wedding Venue

    Our excellent experience of Elmore Court started long before our wedding day with the impeccable service of their wedding coordinators and operational staff. There were so many small details on the day that could easily have been forgotten, but they made sure absolutely everything was thought through and taken care of. They were very flexible, accommodating all of our ideas and suggesting many good ones of their own. The venue itself is spectacular, the main house, coach house and Gillyflower (reception/party space) all providing perfect spaces for the day. The catering team are outstanding. There was an abundance of options for the canapes and wedding breakfast, and we had endless positive feedback on the food. Could not recommend highly enough!

    Beautiful venue with the most incredibly staff

    Elmore Court is an absolutely stunning venue with incredibly helpful staff who go above and beyond to make sure you have the perfect wedding day. We had Leesa as our coordinator when we got married at the end of September (after a few Covid postponements - which the venue were as flexible about as they could be in the circumstances) and she was just fabulous from start to finish. Leesa was always incredibly helpful and responsive she suggested things for our day which helped make it extra special. Leesa was also there on the day to make sure everything went smoothly, and we just knew we were in safe hands which meant on the morning of the wedding we could enjoy ourselves with no stress or last minute admin! The food that Elmore produce is also exceptional - we had an almost entirely vegan wedding and they rose to the challenge with so many options for us to choose from for canapes as well as the wedding breakfast, and so many guests commented on how it was some of the best wedding food they have ever had. The rooms to stay in at the end of the night (and the coach house the night before for the bridal party) are also out of this world. If you are looking for a beautiful wedding venue in the Cotswolds, look no further!

    Best experience from start to finish!

    Where to begin with Elmore!

    When we started to look for venues, I already had Elmore in my mind from seeing it years before! We viewed a lot of venues in the area before deciding to finally go and see Elmore. In an instant it blew all of the other venues out of the water. Its easy to want to book somewhere because it is beautiful but with weddings you also have to think practically. Saying that, Elmore is the most stunning building/ area! more than anything though the team are the best people I have ever had the pleasure to email/speak with/organise my life. They are so calm but you know they have everything under control. Through the whole pandemic, although we were anxious, none of that anxiety was related to Elmore as they kept us updated throughout.

    The wedding day itself - big shout out to Katrina ( although all the coordinators seem incredible), she goes unobserved at times but she did everything for us. We had an incredible day and all the staff were just amazing! Including the accounts team , serving staff, bar staff etc . I honestly could go on for days, but if Elmore is an option for you, please book it, it will be the best decision you ever made.

    Lots of love,

    Kelly & Joel

    PS - food is also delightful, we ended up picking our own menu and the chef smashed it, we still get compliments about it.

    Elmore Court's reply:

    Kelly & Joel!! So lovely to hear from you and huge thanks so such a wonderful review! It means the world to us, that you had such a fab day and we are so thrilled that you chose us. Please stay in touch, enjoy married life and really hope to see you both again soon xxxx

    Wedding of our Dreams

    The venue and Team at Elmore exceeded our wildest dreams for our big day. The whole process was faultless from start to finish and the extra lengths they go to, for you as a couple make everything extra special.

    We immediately fell in love with the history and grandeur of the house, but added to that is the more futuristic Gilly Flower, transformed into a fairy tale for our meal and an amazing party space to finish the day in style!

    The food is more in keeping with fine restaurant quality and at no time does the standard ever slip.

    The team there supported us through out the Pandemic to keep as many options alive as possible and delivered a wedding day and night all our family and friends will remember fondly forever. We cant thank them enough.

    Our wedding

    My husband and I recently had our reception at Elmore Court and we honestly couldn’t have chosen a better venue. This was our 3rd attempt at getting married and throughout all the rearranging Elmore Court were fantastic and made us feel at ease, making a difficult time bearable.

    Nothing was too much for the staff and they were so accommodating. We dropped of our decorations the day before and the staff were more than happy to help finish dressing the room for us.

    The food was simply outstanding, we are still getting guests now telling us they have never had such amazing food at a wedding before, we simply couldn’t fault it!

    The rooms at Elmore Court are all beautifully furnished. We chose to stay in the Master Suite and you do truly feel like a King and Queen when you stay in this bridal suite.

    Breakfast the following morning was a great way to reminisce about the day and enjoy the company of family and friends. The food again was impeccable.

    My husband and I would like again to thank you all for making our wedding day so special and one we shall never forget!

    Mr & Mrs Lovell ❤️

    Elmore Court's reply:

    Oh Lorna thank you so much for such beautiful words. We could not be happier that you enjoyed your wedding day so much and its especially poignant after 3 attempts!
    Thank you with all our hearts. Stay in touch!

    Above and beyond!

    We absolutely cannot recommend Elmore enough. They went above and beyond for us to make sure our day was incredible and totally flawless. We had to postpone our date twice with them because of Covid-19 and nothing was ever too much trouble, even through what must have been a really difficult year and a half for them.

    Every single member of staff is positive, friendly, calm, organised, professional and they all work their absolute socks off to give their couples the perfect day. Our wedding co-ordinator Kat deserves a special shout-out because she was absolutely wonderful from start to finish, but we cannot thank every single person involved enough.

    If you are looking for the perfect venue- book Elmore straight away! Our guests are still talking about what an amazing day it was, and that is absolutely down to them and their professionalism. They really know how to look after people.

    Thank you Elmore!!

    Rhian and Kyle x

    Elmore Court's reply:

    What a review!! Thank you so much, Rhian and Kyle. We loved every second of planning with you and are just so SO delighted that you (finally) got your dream day. Please stay in touch! All our love, Team E xx

    The best venue & the best team

    We could not have wished for more, everything about Elmore was just perfect. From the outset, we fell in love with Elmore. It is a beautiful venue with absolute wow factor - the grounds/ rooms/ Gillyflower are all stunning and maintained to such a high standard. The balance of a stunning setting but absolute party vibe was just fantastic, it felt like having a great time was at the heart of the venue and what more could you ask for?!

    The team at Elmore are all fantastic and really made our experience. We were fortunate we didn't have to postpone due to Covid however living through a year of uncertain planning certainly had its ups and downs however we felt in very safe hands. Anselm and the team did a brilliant job of providing information and being very quick to react to changing circumstances and communicated everything with us. They were transparent and fair and all actions felt like they had the interests of all couples at the heart of it.
    The day itself was perfect, a huge shout out to Kat who was our coordinator - Kat was on hand for everything, professional, calm but also loads of fun and great to work with.
    Our guests were also hugely complimentary of the venue itself, the food and the Elmore team!
    Thank you so much to everyone at Elmore - I cannot imagine a better day or a better venue and I cannot recommend Elmore more highly!

    Wonderful wedding venue

    Getting married at Elmore Court was such a special experience. Not only is it a stunning venue - with an amazing main house and the Gillyflower - but you have the best team supporting you at every step of the way from your first visit through to the big day itself, they always go over and above.
    Everyone in Team Elmore looked after us so well, and a particular thank you to Leesa, our event manager, who was brilliant, helping us plan a wonderful day that was personal to us. We were steered through wedding planning during a pandemic with such care - we knew we were in safe hands!
    The day itself was perfect, both we and our guests were totally blown away by the professionalism and attentiveness from all the staff, the delicious food and drink, and the beautiful location. We can't recommend Elmore Court highly enough!

    Elmore Court's reply:

    Thank you for such lovely, wonderful words, Sophie! It was a pleasure hosting you and your guests and we're beyond thrilled that you had the perfect day that you so deserved. Please don't be strangers! All our love, Team E x

    Elmore Court are a great mix of English sophistication meets fun, family and laughter. The Team Elmore Family were supportive throughout the journey of planning our big day and as the bride & groom, we did not want for anything on the day - they took care of every detail in the background. The main Elmore Court is grand and the Gillyflower is modern but in keeping with the estate. We couldn't have wished for a better venue and group of people to work with.

    Out of this World...

    We cannot recommend this venue highly enough. Elmore Court stole our hearts from our first viewing and only continued to exceed our expectations throughout the whole planning process. From the Open Days, booking process, food tasting to the on ‘the day’ staff, Team E’s dedication to make your day perfect is above and beyond the call of duty. The service is exceptional; a special mention to Leesa our designated coordinator who always managed to make us feel at ease no matter what the question.
    Team E never seem to fail to greet you with a smile, it must be a fantastic place to work.
    Our only regret is that we cannot do it all over again!

    love Love LOVE

    Everything about Elmore Court is fabulous and we couldn't recommend having a wedding there enough!

    Our wedding coordinator Rachel was fantastic and helped make us feel relaxed every step of the way from our initial viewing to planning the details in the lead up to on the day coordination.

    Every member of Team E that we came into contact with were brilliant - well polished and professional whilst being friendly and relaxed at the same time.

    The venue itself is stunning and incredibly versatile with spaces suitable for any style of wedding in any season. We had our ceremony and drinks reception in the main house then moved to the Gillyflower for the meal and party.... And does that space work for a party!!!

    ... and the food... Wow! Everyone commented on how delicious everything was - it was even better than we remembered from the tasting!

    The only downside is that we only plan on getting married once so now we need to find another excuse to go back!

    Amazing wedding venue

    Elmore Court is a knockout wedding venue! What makes Elmore really special is their team of talented, helpful and really kind people.. nothing was ever too much trouble and we really appreciated their calm support in the run up to our day.
    The venue is just stunning. The ceremony room is beautiful and bright, even on a darker day like ours was and the Gillyflower is such a special surprise and looks amazing even with no extra decoration!
    Thanks to everyone at Elmore for helping us have the best day of our lives :)

A cold and crisp Friday in February, gather your friends and family, light the fires and celebrate your love and lives together in the perfect surroundings for a winter wedding!

11th February 2022 is our very last chance for a 2022 wedding, so although it seems very soon this is actually the last date available to marry at Elmore Court before 2024...

Team E will pull out all the stops and help you through every detail of wedding planning, you won't need to worry about a thing.

And in fact we've heard many times before that a 'shot gun' wedding is half the stress of a long engagement as it enables couples to go with their gut instinct rather than deliberating on the details.

Now more than ever before it's worth grabbing life with both hands and going for it.
So come on, let's get you wed!
