Destination Wedding: The Royal Treatment

Ellenborough Park

The destination wedding is always on the minds of brides and grooms to be. However, no happy couple in love wants to repeat what’s already been done, be it a small wedding on a Mexican beach or a reception on the Mediterranean. We’ve got a fresh idea to please that unique couple that is looking for a classic wedding in a far off place.

Ellenborough Park is a five-star, 16th century country manor house hotel in the Cotswolds of England. This hotel, with its stone detail and manicured landscape, delicately screams winter wedding. A popular choice is to have the ceremony on the Ellenborough Park Gallery (the pictures will amaze) and the reception inside along grand fireplaces. If you could put it into a feeling, imagine a Pride and Prejudice vibe meets ultimate English royalty.

As for planning across the pond, Ellenborough will help organize all details from the stationary, to the seating plan, the seasonal flowers, a three-course wedding dinner and the honeymoon turndown service.

All the guests can stay on property with 62 bedrooms available, and there is a widely known spa on property where each guest can relax. Also, the loving couple will receive a choice of two spa treatments or a bridal make-up and manicure service.
