Our Perfect Elmore Christmas Wedding
By Ellen Morgan, on 16 Feb 2018Date of Wedding - 17 Dec 2017
What an incredible day! We knew we’d secured a unique, intimate and magical venue (and boy did it live up to it) but come the day it was Leesa and the team’s expertise that ensured the our wedding ran smoothly and was so effortlessly enjoyable for us and our guests.
Team E's experience shone through at every corner and if ever we needed something, Leesa appeared, as if summoned telepathically, with a huge smile to quietly guide us and make sure we were able to enjoy every aspect of our wedding.
The care and attention to detail was astonishing and we cannot thank Team E enough for their part in making our once in a lifetime day perfect.
Our only disappointment is that we can’t do it all again but then perhaps we’ll be invited to come back and celebrate someone else’s matrimony; as we’ve sung your praises to just about everyone we know (and some we don’t), the chances are good.
For now we will continue to follow the story of Elmore from a distance, fondly, with our precious memories of a magical day.

We were made to feel truly special by Team E. Emails were answered promptly and meetings managed around our impossibly busy schedules. Despite all of this business conducted so efficiently and transparently, we were always greeted with warm hugs and genuine excitement for us and our big day. Never were we made to feel anything other than utterly exclusive, not once double booked, or made second priority to another celebration.
All the little details that fill the house from bottom to top; the furnishings, the sound, the light, the fixtures, fittings, pieces of humour and personality and history, they all exude thoughtfulness and impeccable attention to detail. Elmore is a delight on all the senses, and jam packed full of lovely surprises.
Katrina, who helped shape our first draft of vague details into the vibrant, joyful and organised celebration it was, couldn't have done more to make it so. Above and beyond expectation, she was on hand always to answer all of our questions among a hundred other helpful gestures, she fixed a buttonhole for a shaky groom, made sure the bride held her bouquet in just the right way.
The whole picture, is a reflection of the abilities of the team.To the family who share their home, to the office team busily organizing, caterers, bartenders, housekeepers, gardeners, fixers and menders, we are grateful for their skill and efforts. It is evident that Elmore Court is led by passion, creativity, kindness and ambition. As helpful as they were, when we had everything we needed and all was just right, Team E stepped back to lend us their beautiful space, allowing us and our guests enjoy it as if it were our own home, comfortable enough to enjoy all of our day without worrying about the details or timings.
Brilliant, beautiful venue
By Megan Murray-Pepper, on 24 Dec 2017Date of Wedding - 20 Oct 2017
During the course of wedding planning, we smugly congratulated ourselves again and again for choosing Elmore / managing to find a date there! Everything felt easy from this choice - the house itself is stunning and full of character and requires little to show it off; the accommodation is outrageously well-appointed; the whole team are brilliant, combining professionalism, willingness and a relaxed approach that keeps everything in perspective. We felt so welcome there on our multiple visits and hugely excited about 'possessing' it for the day. And the day itself was wonderful for all concerned - sample reviews from guests on the venue included 'like something out of a film' / 'I felt like I was in a Jane Austen novel'. Etc. Could not recommend more highly... Thank you Team E!
Elmore Court - The Perfect Wedding Venue
By Mr & Mrs Cole, on 25 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 07 Oct 2017
Elmore Court was the 1st and only venue my Husband I and I looked at, from the moment we drove through the gates and walked in through the main doors we were sold. Not only was Elmore Court visually stunning it had such a warm and welcoming atmosphere. No where else could be more prefect for our special day. We loved the mix of the Old Manor House combined with the modern Gillyflower, Elmore truly does have it all.
Nothing seemed too much trouble for any of the staff and we were always made to feel important to them. Leesa and the team were enthusiastic and personal which really made us feel like they genuinely cared that our day was perfect for us, and they ensured it was.
I stayed the night before our wedding in the Coach house which is new, modern and the perfect way start to your day with your bridal party, again the staff were completely on top of everything and I always felt like everything was under control.
The food we chose was incredible and we are still receiving compliments now from our guests, again it was clear to see that care and attention was put into every aspect of our day.
We can not thank all at Elmore for giving us the most perfect wedding day that we will remember and treasure forever.
A special thank you to Leesa, we will always remember how you helped us make our day so fantastic. You were FAB!
We hope to come back to Elmore to visit in the near future as it will now always have a special place in our lives.

The best decision we made was picking Elmore Court
By Simran Maini-Hoskins, on 10 Nov 2017Date of Wedding - 17 Sep 2017
We got married at Elmore Court in September this year, and it quite simply, was the best day of our lives. From the moment we saw the venue online, we knew it was special. The images of the Gillyflower which blew us away initially did not actually do the space justice as it was so much better in real life. The house combines all of the best of its old heritage, with a modern, cool but lux feel - exactly the type of thing we had been looking for. The whole team are amazing - Louise helped tirelessly throughout all of the planning stages, from coordinating our suppliers, to dealing with our gazillion dietary requirements, and was the most calming influence on the day. No request was too big - thanks Simon for building our DJ console! And a huge thanks to the night manager who very kindly accommodated our overnight guests - particularly those a bit worse for wear ;-) I also have to mention the food - it was absolutely delicious, every single course, and we still get friends commenting on how much they enjoyed our camembert starter. My husband organised a light show as a surprise, and the Elmore team noticed that it would be dark for all of our guests to walk out to, so found ways of lighting up the path with lights without our knowledge. It is that attention to detail and level of care that makes this the perfect venue and we would highly recommend it and the team to anyone considering it! Thank you Elmore Court, you made our day magical. We'll never forget it.
So much fun
By Carol & Andy, on 15 Oct 2017Date of Wedding - 27 Aug 2017
We had an absolutely magical wedding at Elmore Court this summer. The venue is stunningly beautiful and brings together the best of heritage charm with a quirky festival feel. That in itself made it onto our top list. However, when we met the wonderful Team E who were brilliantly relaxed and open to making it 'our' wedding, we were hooked! Planning a wedding can feel a little daunting but nothing was too much trouble and the Team, especially the fab Leesa and Simon, supported us in putting together the day of our dreams. Everyone said not to expect your wedding to go to plan but it really did with Elmore! Many of our guests said the food was the best ever (huge thanks to the chef for doing a customised menu of steaks and argentinian salads) and they couldn't believe we'd found such a unusual place. Special thanks as well to the late night staff who set us up with drinks and music in the drawing room for our after party and helped a guest with a car issue. Our top tips would be to book the Court (!), make full use of the Coachhouse for amazing getting-ready memories, and buy plenty of marshmallows for the stunning fire pits! Thank you Elmore!

As soon as we drove through the gates at Elmore we knew we were going to love it. I don't really feel that words can do justice to this incredible place but I'll try!
The venue itself is gorgeous. The mix of old and new is so well balanced and welcoming. The main house and grounds are stunning. One of our main criteria was that the bar be in the same room as the dance floor and with the lovely big windows and beautiful lights the Gillyflower just creates such an atmosphere.
The accommodation is perfect. We wanted somewhere we could stay onsite with our guests. All the rooms are lovely and the attention to detail is amazing. Having the coach house to stay in the night before with my bridesmaids was such a bonus.
The food was all amazing! Everyone is still raving about the food saying it was the best they've had! The menus are so flexible too; we loved that we could basically have whatever we wanted rather than choosing from set menus.
The team are lovely. From the start they were so friendly and helpful. We visited as many times as we wanted and they were always happy to answer any queries. On the day they were faultless. They did such an amazing job setting up so that it looked exactly how we imagined and were so attentive all day and evening. It was seamless thanks to Louise, Kat and Adele and their teams.
The only problem was that the day came to an end! If we could do it all again tomorrow we would. I can't recommend Elmore Court highly enough, it really is just perfect.
Beautifully stunning venue, wonderful people
By Rachel and Ed, on 17 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 20 Jul 2017
We adore Elmore Court. We had the most perfect day. The venue is incredible, but even more wonderful are the people who work there.
We didn't have a care in the world on the day, we were so looked after by Leesa and the whole team.
Our guests loved it and many have said how beautiful Elmore is. We have to agree!
We feel very lucky and will treasure the memories of our day for the rest of our li together. Xxx
Our Perfect Elmore Wedding
By Becky and Andrew, on 13 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 16 Jun 2017
Everything about Elmore was easy. The stunning venue was the perfect setting for our wedding which was made even better by the exceptional friendly easy going service of Simon, Adele and the team. We were allowed to customise everything from the decorations to the menu and wine which we sourced ourselves and yet the staff at Elmore were so efficient at running the day we had nothing to do but enjoy it. Adele made the Gillyflower look even better than I had imagined (we provided her with all of the decorations ourselves and a very poorly drawn diagram of how we visualised it) We would highly recommend this venue to anyone wanting to get married in style without any stress.
Unique, enchanting and romantic
By Alison and Declan Flood, on 28 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 15 Jun 2017
Our hearts were set as soon as we visited Elmore. It’s brimming with personality! It felt homely yet grand, historic yet modern, quirky yet romantic, and embodied everything we were looking for in a venue. There were many spaces we could use throughout the day, and it would have been a fantastic day even if it had rained. As it turned out, the sun was beaming and we celebrated in the vast grounds, as well as inside the gorgeous court and Gillyflower.
Elmore is a stunning venue, but it’s the people that really make it exceptional. Team E were incredibly happy, helpful and friendly, and made us feel as though anything was possible. That it was our day to do as we pleased. There was no question too big or silly for them. They made us feel relaxed and excited about our day.
The food tasted phenomenal, and there were lots of it! Safe to say our guests were kept happy with full bellies.
Thank you so much for making our day so special and memorable. Many of our guests commented of how lovely the entire day was and how intriguing Elmore Court is. A couple of the guests were even kindly taken on a private tour during the evening reception (at their own request). Booking our wedding with Elmore was by far the best wedding decision we made, and we had the time of our lives.
By Laureen and Matt, on 29 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 03 Jun 2017
This is a properly brilliant wedding venue. Facilities are faultless - you get a real wow factor when you arrive, some great picture opportunities, and a purpose-built, modern, well-equipped room for the dinner/party in the Gillyflower. The food really is excellent - the scotch egg canapés were very popular, and everyone said the meal was one of the best they’ve had at a wedding.
The guests who are lucky enough to stay there overnight were all thrilled with their room. A lot of thought went into everything, even the breakfast served the next day which allowed everyone to have a giggle the morning after but also recover with some seriously good fruit/cooked breakfast/coffee. And the ability for the bride and bridesmaids to stay on-site the night before in the (again nicely done) back building was really helpful.
Probably the best thing is the service provided by the staff – right from the moment we’ve booked they were responsive to everything we asked for, really nice to us and attentive on the day, just massively taking the stress out of everything. It feels like a well-oiled machine and you’re in the hands of experts.
There was only one minor glitch on the day, which was the volume of the playlist over dinner was barely audible when the curtains were closed. That was hardly the end of the world and I am sure they will have fixed it - but if you want music with your dinner I would recommend you ask them about it. Of course when the real party started the sound was excellent.
Overall, just get married there, we had the best day.
Team E is the way to be!
By Emma and Oli, on 07 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 31 May 2017
We knew Elmore Court was the place for us as soon as we drove up the sweeping drive way!
The gardens, the house and it's beautiful windows, everything looked beautiful. I was a little worried that somewhere so stately would have a stuffy feel but as soon as we met the team our minds were at ease! Team E were so relaxed and welcoming, and nothing was too much trouble- in fact they welcome the weird and wonderful!
Leading up to our big day, Katrina from Team E looked after us and we really felt we could speak to her anytime about anything.
As the bride, I felt like everything at Elmore was under control and I could sit back and enjoy planning the finer details!
The day before the wedding, we had friends and family over at Elmore for a buffet lunch and drinks and then a lovely dinner in the dining room in the evening. It was a wonderful way to start the celebrations; everyone was relaxed, team E were amazing at looking after us all and the food was to die for!
The big day:
Team E had everything down to a fine art. Nothing was too much trouble and in amongst 110 guests, they made sure we were relaxed and enjoying ourselves.
They even put aside some canapes and bubbly for us to have 5 minutes to ourselves and soak it all up!
All of our guests commented on the venue and food; everything was beautiful. Most of all, the team at Elmore made it for us. They made sure we were relaxed, looked after and having fun!
My only wish? That I could do it all over again!
