Pauntley Court is a beautiful, historic family home which can be hired exlusively for three days and two nights, making it your home for the weekend wedding of your dreams.
Nestling amongst trees, with only a Norman Church and The Dovecote as its neighbours, Pauntley Court is in rural Gloucestershire, on the edge of the Worcestershire and Herefordshire borders. The main house is surrounded by magical formal gardens and has spectacular views reaching across the rolling countryside. It is a truly romantic and unique wedding venue, perfect for an idyllic, exclusive country house wedding.
Pauntley Court offers either a one day mid week wedding or a three day weekend wedding for up to 130 guests and accommodating in total up to 24 family and friends on site. You can arrive on the Friday and stay until the Sunday afternoon, making this wonderfully atmospheric and characterful house your own for a whole weekend. The ten beautiful bedrooms and 9 bathrooms have been sensitively modernised and are elegant and stylish with White Company linens, robes and fresh flowers. The attention to detail is everywhere.
As a family run venue, with only a limited number of weddings per year, we will work closely with you to help you create your perfect wedding day. We understand that no two weddings are the same, and therefore we are very flexible in our approach, offering you the opportunity to make a bespoke, unique and memorable celebration. There are so many very special spaces at Pauntley and we love to show you how you could create your one of a kind wedding here.
If you wish for a religious ceremony, the Norman Church is just next door, a short stroll through the garden.
For a civil ceremony, we now have our civil wedding license for two rooms within the main house, the ballroom seating up to 55 people and the panelled room seating up to 20. As we have a wonderful tentickle stretch tent out on the flat lawns, it is possible to have an outdoor ceremony with all your guests and come back into one of these rooms for the the legal part of your wedding ceremony.
Inside the house, an intimate wedding breakfast for up to 50 can be arranged in the elegant ball room and a drinks reception beforehand can be held in the atmospheric panelled room. For a larger wedding, we have two flat terraced areas to take a marquee or a tipi of your choice, for up to 120 guests.
Bursting with an understated elegance, the house and the gardens are full of character and charm, giving you a unique backdrop for your wedding photographs and providing you and your guests with unforgettable and life-long memories. Included is an experienced wedding coordinator who will be present on the day to ensure you have the most perfect wedding of your dreams.

A truly unique house
We fell in love with it when we came to see it. It is a truly unique house, combining beautiful comfort and attention to detail with quirk and charm and character.Sent on 10/06/2019
Pauntley offers so much that is unusual as a venue. We had our ceremony down by the lake but there are five or six places you could have something equally special. You could make it more formal up in the gardens nearer the house, or more boho in these little clearings they have in the woods surrounded by willow trees and ducks near the lake at the bottom. The church just next door is also beautiful if you would prefer a traditional church service.
The rooms in the house are like a treasure hunt of luxury, everything exquisitely furnished with its own character. Every one’s comfort has been thought of: everyone has a bathroom within access, everyone’s beds are fit for royalty, everyone has views or something quirky about their room that makes them feel special. On top of that there are touches like fluffy gowns, fresh flowers everywhere, beautiful rich sheets and just a really lovely intimate feeling.
Melissa has already got a great list of suppliers, so for things like tipis or marquees you can just trust the people from the area that she already knows. Her recommendations were spot on for everything. Her taste, sense of quality and understanding of what we were after were perfect.
Pauntley is a unique house and Melissa and Mark are the most willing and supportive team you could hope for to help you plan. If you want a country wedding that feels more intimate than most stately homes, but still want comfort for guests and a luxurious and unique place, you should definitely consider it as your venue.
