The History of Elmore Court
Dating back to the 13th-century, Elmore Court is a historic wedding venue set in the enchanting English countryside of Elmore, Gloucestershire. This luxurious location has been in the hands of the Guise family for more than 750 years and has a significant history to its name. The Court was initially a humble dwelling until its transformation in the 16th-century when it was significantly expanded. As the years passed, Elmore Court continued to evolve. The 19th-century saw the addition of the distinctive Gothic facade that has now become one of the venue’s hallmarks. Most recently, in 2013, the Court completed a substantial renovation, emphasizing both the preservation of its historic elements and incorporating state-of-the-art accoutrements. The latest addition is an eco-friendly extension called the Gillyflower, built predominantly from sustainable materials sourced from the estate itself. This part of the venue is used as a celebration space for weddings and parties. Throughout its extraordinary history, Elmore Court has adeptly maintained its quintessential English charm, making it a highly sought-after wedding destination. In spite of its renovations and additions, the Court still possesses a unique ability to transport visitors back in time, providing an unparalleled historical experience.

Besides the fact that you are getting a highly professional, experienced, and creative photographer who will capture all of the special moments of your wedding day, family and friends, you are getting someone that goes in to each wedding knowing that every couple is unique and that all weddings deserve their own twist and personality, rather than be provided a conveyor belt experience. I take great pride to subtly merge into your day and to be approachable for all your guests. The Cotswolds is an area I grew up in and I am all too familiar with everything the region has to offer.

This can bespoke based on your needs. All packages include a digital gallery in which you, your family and friends can enter with a password and download to any device.
