Intimate Wedding Inspiration - A Photoshoot by Katrina Bartlam

The Friday before your big day, can be an afternoon of games (Tennis, Croquet and Petanque) and fun before moving into a wonderful pre-wedding dinner. Just you and your loved ones staying with you in an enchanting country house. Indulge yourselves with some special time together in our beautiful and magical gardens & grounds.


Why not have an alfresco dinner on The Terrace in the Walled Garden, using our outside cooking area.  Bring in a private chef who will cook using our large Egg BBQ and Kadai fire pit or perhaps you might just want to just feast on Italian style meats and tapas style platters from our fantastic local deli Ceci Paolo. There is also Dom of @tastethegoodlife who can come and serve you freshly made woodfired pizzas from his converted horse box. We also have lots of fabulous wedding caterers, who we can tell you about to create the celebratory dinner you are imagining.

Your family and friends can chat and laugh, with a glass of fizz in hand and take in the beauty and magic of the lavender-scented Walled Garden with the statue of Pan at its centre. 


Up to 24 of you can dine on The Terrace in the Walled Garden and get excited with the anticipation of your wedding day ahead, before retiring to their gorgeous bedroom in the house.

Wake up on the morning of your Wedding Day to the melodic sound of songbirds in the garden, gaze out at the rolling English countryside and immerse yourself in the truly magical atmosphere of Pauntley Court.  Perhaps wander through the romantic gardens and start to get excited about the wonderful day ahead you!

Get ready in your sumptuous bedroom, surrounded by your loved ones, start to create those unforgettable memories, and take your time to take in the atmosphere of romance and history that exudes from Pauntley Court.

A day of love and laughter is ahead of you! Be pampered, styled, and totally spoilt by your make-up artist and hair stylist before putting on your wedding dress.

After your wedding ceremony, take time to absorb and enjoy the beauty of the intimate Wedding Breakfast created for you in our elegant Ballroom, just as you had envisioned and planned.


Walk with your wedding photographer through the incredible gardens at Pauntley Court and let your love be captured in this stunning scenic rural estate. Special memories captured in photos for you both to cherish forever.

Relax on the Sunday morning, come together with your loved ones staying with you at Pauntley Court and enjoy a long and slow delicious brunch.


Rachel, our amazing housekeeper (who lives on the estate), can spoil you, look after you and make sure that everything is perfect for you and your guests.

Chat, laugh and remember the special and unforgettable moments of your Wedding Day. Perhaps have a delicious grazing platter from @cotswoldplatterco and choose the many spaces at Pauntley, to enjoy this with your guests.


After a wonderful brunch, immerse yourselves in the enchanting garden rooms, walk down to the Old Mill Pond, and see the swans and their cygnets, play croquet or petanque or sit quietly in one of the many tranquil and enchanting garden rooms at Pauntley Court and reflect on your wedding weekend.


A three day weekend of love, fun and romance can be celebrated on the Sunday!


We are passionate about helping you create a weekend that reflects and embodies you and your dreams.  We will work with to help you find the best suppliers and create unique elements to your weekend wedding experience.


Do get in touch with Melissa who will give you a personal viewing and take you around the house and garden and tell you all about the the colourful characters associated with Pauntley.

Pauntley Court is so beautiful and was the most perfect venue for our intimate wedding. Our ceremony between the quince trees was like something out of a fairytale and was truly magical!

Melissa and team were so welcoming, while Rachel and Holly were fantastic at supporting us throughout to make our day so special.
