About Elmore Court

Elmore, Gloucestershire
Gloucestershire, GL2 3NT

Elmore Court, an unusual Country House like no other.

With over 700 years of family history it is yet wildly young at heart, sustainably run, consistently rated 5 stars and entirely surrounded by stunning countryside set in a bend of the River Severn.

The historic house, over the centuries, was built to entertain and has recently been entirely refurbished along with the addition of a stunning sustainably built sound proofed event space called ‘the Gillyflower’ made from rammed earth and materials gathered from the land.

As a country house wedding venue, it is 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 to enjoy some spa treatments and so that they and some select friends and family can wake up at Elmore, 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.

• Welcoming family home venue • Experienced events team with first class service and excellent attention to detail • In-house catering using local suppliers and produce from Elmore Court’s kitchen garden • Sixteen elegant bedrooms • Unique dinner and dancing venue for up to 200 guests • The Coach House for the night before...

Simply the best!
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs McConnell, on 24 Jan 2019Date of Wedding - 30 Dec 2018

From start to finish Elmore Court was amazing. The venue itself brilliantly combines the old with the new and makes for the perfect venue. Leesa and her colleagues are willing to do anything in order to ensure your day goes perfectly. They leave no stone un-turned to ensure your day is perfect. From sewing buttons onto suits too herding reindeer! they do all the can to make the day perfect I can't recommend them enough

Elmore court -7th December 2018
Venue Service

By Charlotte and Waikit Mak, on 26 Jan 2019Date of Wedding - 07 Dec 2018

We got married at Elmore Court on 7th December 2018. We live in London and having viewed many venues, we were struggling to find anything that wowed us. We came across Elmore Court in a wedding magazine and decided to check it out. We absolutely fell in love with it when we saw it for the first time. Such a beautiful venue and unique in that the main house is a newly restored old building with character and charm and the reception room is a new purpose built building in the garden. All of our guests commented on how gorgeous the setting was for our wedding. The venue alone was enough to make us happy but what is even better is the staff there. Our wedding coordinator, Katrina, was incredible. She was always there for us when we had questions and she really accommodated all of our requests, they are so flexible in allowing you to have exactly what you want for your wedding. During the run up to the wedding, Katrina made sure we were stress free. On the day, you do not need to worry about anything as Katrina made sure everything was running smoothly. The service staff on the day were just as incredible, they treated us like royalty and made sure to check that we were happy with everything, undoubtedly the best service we have ever received. Finally, the food, it’s never easy cooking for that many guests but our food was delicious, some of our guests said it was one of the nicest wedding meals they had. We can’t recommend Elmore Court enough, it was just the perfect choice for our wedding. Thank you Team Elmore, you all made our wedding the best day ever.

Thank you!

I don't even know where to start with Elmore Court. They are beyond incredible and they did everything with class and ease on the day to ensure that our day ran so smoothly. Our guests have said that it was the best wedding ever, super relaxed, chilled and just an overall enjoyable day with plenty of yummy food, alcohol and dancing - what more do you need! All of our guests said how amazing the staff at Elmore were, so huge thanks to everybody involved – nothing was ever too much for any of you for myself, my husband and our guests. Our wedding coordinator was Rachel and she absolutely smashed it – she is so calming in her approach and ensured that me as the Bride was calm and reassured at all times, so thank you. As an Event Manager myself, I thought I might be worrying about the little details on the morning of the wedding, but I honestly had so much faith and trust in her that I felt totally relaxed. The Hall and the Gillyflower massively exceeded my expectations in terms of what we thought it would like - the whole venue is so versatile and just oozes class and charm. Honestly the whole day feels like a blur and we just wish we could do the day all over again because we just had so much fun. Everything that Elmore Court has to offer is second to none and there's a reason why they are featuring in so many magazines and up for so many awards - they are just simply incredible! Thank you, thank you, thank! Mr and Mrs Aristides ??

The most amazing and supportive wedding venue!
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Chapman, on 10 Jan 2019Date of Wedding - 01 Dec 2018

We got married at Elmore Court in December 2018, and loved every minute of the planning and the Big Day itself! It is such a fantastic venue, it feels like your own country estate for the day, and you get both a traditional old house and a modern party venue all in one - with no travelling in between! 'Team E' were brilliant, there was nothing stressful about the organisation of the day and they made everything run like clockwork. I'm a real planner and control freak but they made it so easy for me to relax and forget about the practicalities and just enjoy the day! Our guests were so impressed with the venue and the staff, it's an absolutely brilliant wedding venue and somewhere which will always hold a special place in our hearts.

A huge thank you to the Elmore court team for making our day so amazing. They were so helpful, kind and supportive throughout and ensured everything ran smoothly from the first time we made contact until we left after our wedding! Our guests could not stop gushing at how much they loved the venue and how much they enjoyed the delicious food - they were all so impressed. We cannot recommend Elmore Court enough as a truly special place and team

By Lizzie Watt, on 22 Nov 2018Date of Wedding - 21 Oct 2018

Well what can we say about Elmore Court. Rachel and team E couldn’t have been more helpful in the run up to and including our wedding day on 21st October 2018. Nothing was too much trouble. The sun shone, the wine flowed and we were well looked after. Can’t recommend them highly enough. We were sad to leave the following morning knowing that we weren’t going to be going back. I’d do it again in a heartbeat.

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

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.

The most amazing party of our lives!
Venue Service

By Jermaine & Michelle Gyekye, on 07 Jan 2019Date of Wedding - 22 Sep 2018

As soon as we walked through the doors of Elmore Court on a cold, wet day two years ago, we instantly knew it was the place we wanted to get married. It is the most beautiful venue, so grand and dreamy and yet so quirky. We thought if it could look as magical as it did on that miserable February day, then we were on to a winner. It was just as well... 22 September 2018, the day of our wedding, was one of the wettest days we had seen in months. But that didn't dampen our spirits in the slightest! The venue looked just as incredible as ever, the staff were second to none (even escorting our guests across the car park with Elmore umbrellas!) and the food was sublime. The Gillyflower is such a great space; as soon as we saw the disco ball and the Funktion One sound and lighting system, we knew Elmore Court was where we wanted to host the biggest party of our lives. And it didn't disappoint! Elmore Court is, without doubt, the BEST wedding venue we have ever been to (and we've been to a lot of weddings). Our guests are still raving about the food, drink, staff, fire pit, dance floor, accommodation, well... everything! We wish we could do it all over again. Choosing Elmore Court as our wedding venue was the best decision we made. Shout out to Katrina & Team E for turning our dream day into reality. We can't thank you enough.

Perfect from start to finish
Venue Service

By Angharad Jenkins, on 09 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 26 Aug 2018

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!

Elmore Court - stunning, amazing venue
Venue Service

By Jess Dennison, on 03 Apr 2019Date of Wedding - 25 Aug 2018

We had such a fun day at Elmore Court for our wedding. We thought it was such an amazing, unique venue - it combines the historical (a stunning house and wonderful garden) with the modern - a specifically created dining room and dance floor which is a great place to party (a building called the Gillyflower with big bright windows - great for the summer). There is also accommodation at the main house with a beautiful bridal suite and rooms for a limited number of guests - many of our guests who stayed at the house said they thought the standard was like a luxurious boutique hotel. We were delighted with everything at Elmore Court - eg. for the food, we were given lots of options to choose from, and many of our guests commented to us afterwards that they thought the meal was delicious. Our main contact, Louise was a star - she was brilliant with all the preparations and organisation. She was so helpful, friendly and flexible in creating the perfect wedding for us. On the day itself, as well as Louise, all of Team E were brilliant - Leesa and Stacey really helped everything go smoothly. Also the night staff were great for those of us staying at the house as they put on food and drinks when we got back, so we could have a nightcap or two in the early hours. So many of our guests commented how friendly all the staff were and what a cool and beautiful venue they thought it was. In summary it really was the perfect venue for us, and we’d highly recommend Elmore Court and can’t thank Team E enough!

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
