Private Tours of the house

For those of you who have only just stumbled across our wedding venue, are keen to visit to find out if it's the one for you, and are looking for a date in late 2024 or in 2025 (we are fully booked until then!)

The best plan is to have a private tour of the house with Team E where you can find out exactly how we do things here and what makes our wedding venue so unusual.
You can book one now ahead of time by dropping them a line: life@elmorecourt.com 

For you lucky lot who are already booked, or have already celebrated your wedding with us, members of Team E will also be on hand and hanging out in the Gillyflower for hugs, wedding planning questions and all the other important bits and bobs.
