"We can't thank you all enough for opening your home to allow us to have the most amazing wedding. It was all we hoped and dreamed of - and more! The whole day really was perfect - to wake up to a gorgeous sunrise at Pauntley Court, get ready with all our favourite people and then walk to the church was amazing and I will never forget seeing all our friends and family enjoying themselves in the gorgeous gardens in the most amazing September sunshine.
We felt unbelievably lucky all weekend and know that our day really was perfect - a huge part of that was down to the amazing venue that Pauntley Court is. Thank you all again."
Sarah, Bride, September 2019
"Pauntley offers so much that is unusual as a venue. We had our ceremony down by the lake, which was just beautiful, but there are five or six places you could have something equally special and lovely with a slightly different feel. You could make it more formal up in the gardens nearer the house, or more boho in these little clearings they have in the woods surrounded by willow trees and ducks near the lake at the bottom. Smaller weddings could even be in the house and that in itself would be incredibly special. The church just next door is also beautiful if you would prefer a traditional church service. What we loved was the openness of the views (breathtaking) and the intimacy of being by the water.We were very lucky to find something so luxurious and comfortable on the one hand, and quirky, intimate and characterful on the other. The rooms in the house are like a treasure hunt of luxury, each beautiful old wooden door opening to another room, another stunning staircase, everything exquisitely furnished with its own character. Every one’s comfort has been thought of: everyone has a bathroom within access, everyone’s beds are fit for royalty, everyone has views or something quirky about their room that makes them feel special.Pauntley is a unique house and Melissa and Mark are the most willing and supportive team you could hope for to help you plan. If you want a country wedding that feels more intimate than most stately homes, but still want comfort for guests and a luxurious and unique place for you as a couple, you should definitely consider it as your venue."

“I am so grateful for all your hard work hosting us, the whole experience made our wedding day truly special. I will never forget waking up at Pauntley on the day of the wedding, it was so magical.
You went out of your way to make sure everything was perfect for us, right down to the finishing touches - flowers, breakfast and of course, hedgehog bread! - everything was immaculate. Staying at Pauntley was more than the icing on the cake! All the family loved their stay, and everyone commented on how beautiful the house was.”

"Pauntley Court is a beautiful venue with stunning rooms and gardens and would make the perfect wedding location. When we stayed there for our own wedding Melissa and family were fantastic and made our day really special. We arranged to have our wedding pictures taken in the wonderful gardens and as expected we were over the moon with the results."
