5 reasons you’ll fall in love with Pauntley Court

From its idyllic Cotswold countryside setting to its ‘home from home’ feel, there are oodles of reasons why Pauntley Court will make your heart flutter. Although we can’t welcome you through our doors while lockdown is still in place, we thought we’d explain why to our beloved family home in Gloucestershire…


Ceremony Options

Pauntley Court boasts various ceremony options for you to choose from, whether you love the idea of tying the knot in the gorgeous summer sunshine or getting wed indoors. For couples who are seeking a traditional religious ceremony, Norman Church is a just stone’s throw from the house - you just need to wander through the gardens and you’ll be there. Owners of Pauntley Court, Mark & Melissa, married at this very church over 22 years ago! It has space for up to 120 guests and is incredibly picturesque.

We can host up to 50 guests in the Ballroom for a civil or humanist ceremony – the perfect fit for an intimate, cosy gathering. For those who are tempted by the thought of an outdoor ceremony, our gardens, woodland and lake all offer wildly romantic settings for your love story. Can you picture a more perfect scene than saying, ‘I Do’ in the glorious sunshine, with nothing but the rolling Cotswold hills as your backdrop?

Don’t forget, we also have availability for elopement weddings if you want to start your happily ever after just the two of you – get in touch to find out more or read all about micro-weddings here.
