With its beautiful Cotswold stone exterior, manicured grounds and stunning views of the Gloucestershire countryside, luxurious five-star hotel Ellenborough Park certainly makes for one of the UK’s most impressive wedding venues.
The 16th century manor house hotel is situated on the outskirts of Cheltenham and has been lovingly restored to offer brides and grooms a spectacular setting to host their big days.
The venue is licensed to hold civil ceremonies and couples can choose from The Gallery, suitable for up to 120 guests, which features a double height ceiling with a mezzanine level and opens out onto the pretty courtyard gardens – perfect for post-ceremony drinks.
The De la Bere Court, situated in the main house and benefitting from a majestic vaulted glass atrium, can welcome from 30 up to 140 guests for the wedding breakfast and evening reception, while there’s also the option to have a marquee on the lawns for larger numbers.
For those wanting more intimate ceremonies the choices include The Library and The Royalist which are licensed for 18 and 12 guests respectively, with both featuring original oak panelling and period fireplaces.
Both rooms can also host wedding breakfasts with The Library able to accommodate 20 guests and The Royalist 12.
Ellenborough Park is also available for exclusive hire offering couples use of the entire hotel, including bedrooms, dining rooms and banqueting suites with the option to add on use of the spa.
