Your very personal and private ceremony can be in the panelled room or out in one of the tranquil outdoor ceremony spaces. You will then have time to spend with your photographer and explore the gardens and grounds while your small wedding party has a drink and some canapes before an intimate wedding breakfast. At around 8pm your guests can head off and you will retire to the romantic wing of the house, Elinor Fettiplace.
The next morning, wake up to birdsong and the sun streaming through your window. Enjoy a lazy morning and delicious locally sourced breakfast hamper before heading off on your honeymoon!

We love to welcome couples, their families and their friends to our family home to make it their very own home for a whole weekend. We, as a family, are passionate about Pauntley and really enjoy sharing the magic and special unique character of this house and its stunning gardens.
Nestling in the Gloucestershire countryside with only the 16th century Dovecote and the Norman church as its neighbours, you will see the rosy glow of the house as you start to crest the hill.
The friendly and fantastic Pauntley Team will help you create your dreams and work with your ideas and wishes, supporting you to make sure your exclusive event is the very best it can be. Melissa loves to meet you and show you around the house and gardens and tell you all about the colourful characters that have been associated with Pauntley, beginning with Dick Whittington who was born here in 1352. We look forward to welcoming you soon!

Holly was amazing! She had thought of everything, and I can’t explain how much easier the morning was knowing Holly (Wedding Coordinator) was there! We can’t recommend the whole team, enough you are all amazing.
Thank you to Rachel (Housekeeper) who was superwoman the whole few days! Serving the canapes and gelato, to cooking us all the most delicious breakfasts and everything in-between. You were incredible.
