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 and very special gardens and has spectacular views reaching across the rolling countryside. It is a truly romantic and one of a kind wedding venue, perfect for a smaller wedding with your family and friends staying with you.

Pauntley Court offers a 'Micro Wedding' of up to 16 guests, a 'Petite Wedding' of up to 24 guests or an 'Intimate Wedding' for up to 40 guests. We can accommodate in total up to 24 family and friends across 10 beautiful and individually designed bedrooms with 9 modern bathrooms. The wonderful bedrooms have sumptuous white company linens, fluffy towels and slippers, luxurious toiletries and fresh flowers from the gardens. You and your guests will have a very special and spoiling 2 night stay.

You can choose from a weekend wedding from a Friday and stay until the Sunday afternoon or a mid week wedding from a Tuesday to a Thursday.

As a family run venue and with only have a limited number of weddings per year, Melissa and her team 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. Melissa will give you a personal tour of the house and gardens and talk you through all the different possibilities. Our wedding coordinator will then meet with you to help you choose your suppliers from our carefully selected list of local talented suppliers and plan your big day.

For a civil ceremony, we now have our civil wedding license for two rooms within the main house, the ballroom seating up to 40 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 40 can be in the elegant ball room and a drinks reception afterwards can be held in the atmospheric panelled room. Drinks and canapes amongst the quince trees, followed by oautdoor dining under the stretch tent or the hornbeam arches can also be arranged. There is so much choice.

    Amazing Venue and Host

    Melissa and her team made our special day the most amazing experience. The venue is beyond beautiful and the atmosphere was exactly as we’d hoped for. I can’t express enough appreciation!

    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.
