Tilly and Reece

Tilly and Reece chose to have a midweek micro wedding reception at Pauntley Court last September.

After their wedding in Tilly’s parish church, the happy couple were greeted with a glass of bubbles before moving through into the gorgeous gardens at Pauntley Court.

Drinks and canapés were enjoyed by all the guests as they chatted and laughed together under our ‘Tentickle’ stretch tent within the hornbeam arches on the first lawn. The sun was shining, and everyone was relaxed and happy, with time to reflect on the beautiful church service, and excited to move into the house to enjoy the next part of the big day!

Tilly and Reece had a chance to wander off with their photographer Lee Hawley through the magical garden rooms and into the sunken garden.

Everyone was breathing in the magical atmosphere and the glorious far-reaching views across the Gloucestershire countryside.

Guests were then asked to move into the house for the wonderful wedding breakfast by Charlotte Gardner catering. Tilly’s mother and family had decorated the long trestle tables the day before and personalised the table plan, just as they wished it to look.

The Ballroom was filled with joy and much laughter and everyone had a chance to talk and enjoy the personal and intimate atmosphere. The wedding cake looked beautiful on the grand piano.

When the guests left at the end of the day Tilly and Reece retired to the romantic and cosy bridal suite, Elinor Fettiplace, time to reflect and reminisce on their beautiful wedding day.

"The house and grounds were pristine and we couldn’t have imagined a more beautiful venue for our reception!" - Tilly, Bride, 2020

"Melissa is amazing, she is so friendly, knowledgeable and you can feel how much she loves Pauntley Court. The grounds are beautiful, and the rooms are just exquisite. There were so many options for the dining area, ceremony location, socialising etc, no detail was missed, and no request was too big to be accommodated. Jilly was our wedding coordinator, and she went above and beyond in terms of helping us make the most of our special day. We had numerous meetings beforehand, and she spent the whole day working away in the background making sure we had the most perfect day. Which we did! We also hired Rachel to help with tidying and washing up in the mornings, and she was an absolute godsend. Her help allowed us to just relax and enjoy our day to the fullest. She cooks a mean breakfast too 😉."
