Marrying traditional elements with a contemporary touch, Elmore Court is one of the Cotswolds’ most beautiful venues
Elmore Court is an eclectic mix of the old English manor house feel, with a contemporary, purpose-built party spot. The Guise family have been on this patch since 1274 and as such, there is an overwhelming sense of 'home', from the minute you walk in.
Facilities and services
The venue is licensed to hold civil ceremonies in several rooms in the House, outside on the Front Porch and also in The Gillyflower. Elmore Court offers two venues in one; the Main House for the ceremony, drinks and accommodation, and The Gillyflower behind offers an additional space for dining and dancing.
The gem behind the splendour of the Court is RIBA award-winning ecologically sound, and entirely soundproof party venue known as The Gillyflower. Carved from estate timber and sculpted from the earth, this 'future-rustic' structure is packed with an Ibiza-quality sound and lighting system.

Best spot for photos
In summer, try and catch the sunset out in the Gillyflower meadow – just beautiful.
A great team of super-talented chefs can create the menu that you desire. Where possible, they try to use locally sourced ingredients to help support local businesses, as well as that grown in the estate.
There are 16 bedrooms on-site for the night of the wedding. The Coach House is the perfect bridal prep pad for the night before.
"Words can't begin to describe how incredible the entire day was. With the help of the extremely friendly staff, wonderful vendors and our fantastic families, we were able to create the whimsical enchanted fairytale we dreamed of. Elmore made planning this wedding from America the easiest and smoothest journey you could ever imagine. Endless 'thankyous' to the staff; we will be forever grateful for your hard work and making our day the best day of our lives." Chelsea & James Tyson.
