Ellenborough Park: Venue Review

Andy Venues, Weddings

What Ellenborough Park say about their wedding venue:

Situated in beautiful Cotswolds parklands, Ellenborough Park is delighted to cater for civil ceremonies and civil partnerships in a range of beautiful rooms or stunningly maintained gardens. The hotel has a variety of enchanting options to cater for all your wedding day dreams, whatever your requirements.

Choose from the beautiful Ellenborough Park Gallery which caters for up to 120 people, the stunning De La Bere Court that can hold up to 140 people, or the historic and intimate main house of Ellenborough Park. Alternatively, if an outdoor wedding is required, then the beautifully fully restored stone Gazebo is available for guests choosing to book the hotel exclusively.

These wonderful civil ceremony options make Ellenborough Park one of the best wedding venues in Cheltenham.

What I think of Ellenborough Park as a wedding venue:

Ellenborough Park is situated on the slopes of Cleave hill, with great views of Cheltenham and the racecourse it delivers great backdrops for your photos.

Although I have only attended one wedding here, the venue did feel somewhat on the small side, with very little space to move around during the ceremony. Bigger wedding parties may struggle with this, although there are some rooms shared with other guests which are pretty grand in size; I do not know if these can be used for the ceremony requirements. However, that being said, they do cater for outdoor weddings too. An outdoor wedding at this location would definitely be highly recommended (if you can guarantee the weather that is!) to take great advantage of the venues location.

The Staff were always on hand to assist me and the bride and groom, always making sure we had everything we needed to get the photos we wanted, for that I do thank the staff on the day for making this happen.

So if you are planning a small wedding of about 40 guests, this would be your ideal location for that Cotswold wedding. Larger groups may struggle, but do not let that put you off this place, contact them and find out what they can do for you.

If you are considering a wedding at Ellenborough Park then contact me for a chat about your photography needs.

UPDATE: Ellenborough Park have been in contact with me to reassure me that the other rooms they have for weddings can cater for larger numbers easily especially the De la Bere suite which can hold about 100 comfortably. More than enough space for a big wedding!
