Tortworth Court Wedding Gloucestershire

This Tortworth Court Gloucestershire wedding was staged in De Vere’s historic hotel, standing in magnificent grounds, just 20 minutes north of Bristol.

Tortworth Estate lies on the fringe of the South Cotswolds and is recorded in the Domesday Book. It has been the ancestral seat of the Ducie family for more than 350 years. Following a multi-million pound restoration, the manor house now combines 21st-century style with a wealth of original features. On the hotel’s 30-acre estate is a Victorian arboretum boasting more than 300 beautiful plant and tree specimens.

The Ceremony & Wedding Breakfast

Tortworth Court Gloucestershire

This imposing De Vere hotel at Wotton under Edge is fully licensed for civil wedding ceremonies and is where Becky and Lee tied the knot.

The couple chose The Orangery for the marriage ceremony. Built in 1874, this grand conservatory has a stunning ornamental glass ceiling and windows with fine detailing. This is the ideal venue should you be looking to cater for up to 100 guests.

After the ceremony, and while we were enjoying a champagne reception, hotel staff transformed The Orangery into a magnificent space for Becky and Lee’s wedding breakfast. This was a lively affair and went up a notch when X Factor winner, Louise Johnson, walked into the room. Not only did she perform a brilliant set for guests at the wedding breakfast but also serenaded our happy couple with her soulful tones during their first dance.

Thank you, Becky and Lee, for your kind words and it was a pleasure to be invited to record this special day.
