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.

'We couldn't have imagined a more perfect place to get married than Pauntley. The first time we went we both instantly knew it was the right place for us, it has a special feel about it as soon as you arrive. The house is amazing, decorated beautifully throughout with so many nice touches. The gardens are incredible, and we loved that there are so many different areas to use within it over the weekend. We loved having the venue for the whole weekend as it meant we were able to celebrate with friends and family on Friday and Sunday too which made the weekend even more exciting. 

We really wanted our wedding to be as personalised to us as possible, and we were able to achieve this so easily - choosing our catering company/bar company/where we wanted different aspects of the day to take place etc. This all meant that our wedding had a bespoke feel to it and we loved how our day was different to all others before. 

We were lucky enough to have amazing weather on our wedding day and had our ceremony outside on the ceremony lawn. It truly felt like we were at a destination wedding due to it being such a beautiful venue and location - so many guests said they felt like they had been transported to Italy or France!  Melissa the owner is so lovely and always happy to help. Rachel the housekeeper is an amazing asset to the team and definitely saved the day at one point! We had Holly as our wedding coorindator and she was absolutely incredible, she made me feel so calm and comfortable on the day knowing it would all run smoothly in her safe hands. We couldn't recommend getting married at Pauntley enough - thank you so much.'
