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

From the moment we arrived at Pauntley we totally fell in love with it. It is so unique and like nothing else we had looked at. Melissa is so lovely and was really helpful throughout our planning - it always felt so personal. She goes above and beyond to make sure everything runs smoothly. It was also great to have Holly's help, particularly on the day for any last-minute jobs that needed sorting before or during the afternoon.

 We arrived on the Thursday night with our parents and had the main house from Friday lunchtime for the weekend. This worked really well for us as it meant we had lots of time to decorate the marquee and sort the final details before the big day so the build up was stress free and meant we could enjoy it! We honestly had the most amazing weekend and everyone said how magical Pauntley was. The house and its surroundings are simply beautiful and it is the perfect setting for a wedding.

 A huge thank you to Melissa and her family for welcoming us into their home and sharing their little slice of heaven - it will forever hold a special place in our hearts, and we can't wait to visit again.
