Alice and Adrien’s Elmore Court wedding
Alice and Adrien’s Elmore Court wedding was my first visit to this stunning historic venue in beautiful Gloucestershire and I very much hope it won’t be my last. The house itself, which still serves as a family home, dates back to approximately 1580 and the family that currently lives there have roots there dating back to around 1274. So clearly a venue with some rich heritage and history. According to the current owners the house has been altered and added to over the generations, from Elizabethan times through to the Victorian era, always with the intention of creating the perfect space for entertainment and socialising. This is abundantly clear as soon as you step foot through the gates of Elmore Court. It is as welcoming as it is stunning and makes a fantastic wedding venue.
An Elmore Court wedding is timelessly elegant without trying too hard. The ambience is classic, classy but down to earth with no pretensions of grandeur. The decor throughout the house oozes charm and there is an air of calm in every room. Perhaps the jewel in the crown at Elmore Court is the Gillyflower which exemplifies everything that the owners stand for. For weddings, the Gillyflower is used as the ballroom, wedding breakfast room and dance floor. It’s built sustainably from the materials found on the estate described by the owners as a future-rustic dinner and dancing space. One of the most impressive features is its sound proofed walls which have been created by stuff the cavities full of earth and timber from the estate. It’s venue designed for partying with a state of the art sound and light system. And it achieves all of this without disturbing the neighbours due to its design and sound proofing.
Situated in the Severn Valley, the grounds around Elmore Court are an enticing mix of woodland and gardens which mirror the calm ambience of the main house. Alice and Adrien’s Elmore Court wedding took full advantage of this unique venue and I very much look forward to shooting my next wedding there.
