Wild weddings lets go!

The first ever wild cattle have been born to our rewilding land, the snowdrops are dancing in the chilly breeze, our treehouse plans are in full swing and the road into the woods is now complete... So then, it must be time for Another Wilder Fair!

With the mega amount of postponed weddings we're finally celebrating, those of you at the beginning of your wedding venue search might have struggled to get a foot in the door, and we're so sorry if you haven't managed to book a viewing or tour the house in person.

But! The wait is over. Read on to find out how you can book a private tour of the house on the day...

Our first wild calves born this month

Another Wilder Fair: 27th March 2022

Yippeeeeeee! It's wedding fair time. 
We have booked out a whole day of fun and inspiration for you.

You are all (yes all of you!) warmly invited to spend the day in true Elmore style (it's always more of a party than an open day: you will most definitely get a drink, some food and some good music, that's always guaranteed) there'll be no entry fee or complicated nonsense like that.

If you've already booked your date with us just turn up on the day and make yourselves at home.

Yes! that includes your wedding gang too! You're more than welcome to show your nearest and dearest around...

If you're still searching for the perfect wedding venue and you haven't yet seen ours, you'll be able to book your own private tour of the house and Gillyflower with one of Team E.

Simply pop them an email to get booked in now: life@elmorecourt.com
