    Early May at Pauntley Court

    When we were planning our wedding we chose to have an intimate celebration (28 people) and as soon as we found Pauntley Court we knew it was the only place we would want to get married.



    On our venue visit we fell in love with the charming building exterior, the immaculate gardens and the opulent, yet comfortable interior. Pauntely Court comprises the perfect mixture of history, character and modern features.



    The 3 day stay, accompanied with the buildings terracotta walls, extensive gardens and the early May sunshine set deep in the English countryside gave our guests the feel of a European destination wedding without the hassle and expense of travelling.



    The exclusivity of the house worked perfectly for our wedding party and all our needs were more than accommodated for. The entirety of the home was kept immaculate for the duration of our stay through the support of Rachel the housekeeper, she worked unobtrusively to ensure that all our needs were met. This was also mirrored in the hosts; Melissa and Mark, and our assigned wedding co-ordinator Rebecca. They worked efficiently to ensure that the day ran perfectly and was everything we’d hoped for.



    We can’t thank the team at Pauntley Court enough and feel so lucky that we were fortunate to host our wedding in such an extraordinary piece of history. There really is nowhere else quite like it; it’s a truly magical venue that was enjoyed by our whole wedding party.

    Pauntley Court's reply:

    Dear Amy and Kieran
    We are so happy to hear all your lovely comments about your wedding at Pauntley Court in early May. Rebecca, your wedding coordinator and Rachel, our housekeeper so enjoyed meeting you and being a part of your big day!
    With our best wishes

    The most special, unique and personal wedding venue!

    Our wedding at Pauntley Court was all we could have imagined and more. It was the only wedding venue that felt personal, special and this was down to the obvious beauty of the house and grounds, but also Melissa and the wedding coordinator team's friendliness, knowledge and want to help in any way to make the weekend special and unique to us. It was perfect to have the venue Friday to Sunday meaning 20 people all staying at the venue could spend lots of time together pre and post wedding. The options for the wedding ceremony and meal setting at the venue were endless too making it feel personal to what we wanted. Finally, the suppliers that Melissa recommended were incredible in quality and friendly service. This helped for very easy planning and on the day things running so smoothly as all the suppliers knew one another so just got on with setting up etc! We can't recommend Pauntley Court and Melissa's family and team enough for weddings or staying at the beautiful venue!!

    Pauntley Court's reply:

    Dear Lucy and Theo

    Best wishes

    A magical weekend!

    Our wedding weekend at Pauntley Court was simply magical. The house was a perfect base for our close family and friends for the weekend, everyone was in awe of the beautiful interiors and attention to detail throughout. We enjoyed a relaxed supper in the spacious kitchen the evening before the wedding itself, followed by some drinks in front of the fire in the lounge afterward. On the wedding morning, the bridal party had breakfast and got ready in the well lit ballroom, it was a serene atmosphere, which was only complemented with the views out of the garden through the window.
    We used the gardens for our wedding reception, the guests loved adventuring into to the different areas and seeing the spring flowers which had just started to bloom. The little bridesmaids were in their absolute element, playing hide and seek amongst the box hedges.
    Melissa and team went out of their way to make our wedding weekend absolutely perfect in every way, we couldn’t thank them more and we are just sad now that it’s all over! We can’t wait to find another excuse to book Pauntley Court and come back!

    Pauntley Court's reply:

    Dear Sophie and Sam
    It is wonderful to ready your kind words about your wedding here in late April this year. Your marquee and the flowers just looked beautiful! We hope you will come back and stay one day soon.
    Best wishes
    Melissa and the Pauntley Team

    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.

    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.
