Elmore Court is an unusual wedding venue. Youngest Guise (Anselm: Glade festival) transformed his 800 year old family home into the sustainable party pad we love in 2013. We're now Rewilding too!

Do you have in-house chefs?

Yes, and they are AMAZING! Super-skilled and flexible they will help to create your menu of dreams. We also try where possible to supply fresh produce in our walled gardens and purchase from local suppliers so you are always guaranteed the freshest and highest quality of food.

Is there a noise limit?

We have a brilliant Funktion-One sound system for you to use in the Gillyflower and as the building is totally sound proof you can turn up those tunes as much as you desire.

Can I bring in my own drinks?

Yes, we you are welcome to pay a service charge to bring in your own drinks during the day and we will sort the staff, ice and glassware so on the day you can relax and enjoy. You are also welcome to choose one of the packages we have put together to save you time.

How are you sustainable?

We have been on a journey to become fully sustainable since we opened in 2013. Here are some of the things we do to look after our environment: Energy: We use 100% renewables and heating provided by estate grown and managed biomass (woodland). Construction: We use local materials with as low impact as possible. Our eco reception venue The Gillyflower is made of Rammed Earth and estate timber. Our new Treehouses (coming 2023) are using materials with low carbon. Food: We are growing more and more of our food in-house in our walled garden and on the estate. We are changing our menus to be seasonal and local. Soon wild meat will be added from our rewilding project on the land. Transport: We are calculating the carbon footprint of all people travelling to and from and offsetting (see below) Nature: We have given 100HA (250 acres) of land back to nature with our Rewilding project. This will hopefully be expanded to another 143 acres in 2025. Offsetting: By using land differently we are measuring carbon sequestration and using that balance to absorb harm (transport, Business activities, waste etc) Inspiration: By creating an environment where it is clear and apparent that things can be done differently and also be fun and delicious we hope that people will be pollinated with inspiration and go away thinking that things can and should be different.

Testimonials

We had our wedding at Elmore Court in May and cannot recommend it highly enough. The venue is absolutely beautiful, the old house is full of character without being old and stuffy and all the bedrooms are totally unique. The Gillyflower is a stunning building for the reception, the layout is perfect and with the huge windows looking onto the meadow, it is just incredible. Throughout the whole process the staff couldn't be more helpful, nothing was a problem and they were so flexible. They did all our catering for two days and all the food was delicious and much better quality than you usually get for big weddings. In short, I couldn't speak more highly of them and am trying to work out when we can go back!

Elmore Court, what an amazing venue and accommodation! Team E were amazing helping plan our special day, nothing was too big or too small and I don't think I ever heard the word "no”. On the day the team were amazing! So relaxed, helpful and had thought of everything! Service from start to finish was brilliant, it felt like we were dealing with friends who wanted us to have the best day possible and did everything they could to make it just that! For us this venue is relaxed, stylish and definitely value for money! Elmore Court & the team made our wedding more special than we ever could have ever imagined!

We got married at Elmore Court in September and we cannot recommend it highly enough - we loved every minute of it! We loved it's perfect mix of grandeur for the ceremony in the main hall, relaxed elegance in the reception rooms and gardens and incredible party space in the Gillyflower! Everyone at Elmore Court always made us feel special - like they didn't have any other weddings and had all the time in the world for us - and they really made our day so perfect. If you are looking for a magical venue and people that will make planning your wedding a pleasure - Elmore Court is the place and we feel so lucky we were able to get married there!

Where to begin… What an utterly spectacular day. We wish we could zoom back in time to do it all over again. Feeling so blessed to have been able to celebrate the day exactly as we dreamed it and have so much love for you and the whole team for making it happen and hosting the best day our lives. We’ve had countless people exclaiming how it was "the most stunning wedding venue they've ever seen, best wedding they've ever been to, how delicious and on point the food was, how cool and attentive the team were and most importantly how impressive YOU were”. We just wanted to express how overwhelmingly grateful we are to you for being by our side on the wedding journey. A part of me is secretly glad it got delayed because it meant we got all that bonus time with you in the process… not to mention all the extra visits to Elmore. It began to feel a little bit like home there for a moment ????. You brought so much happy energy and kept us smiling all the way, so thank you Kat, you absolute legend.
