Let’s talk about your ceremony, the reason you’re here and the biggest part of the day.
Why is this milestone moment in front of your favourite people so often overlooked? Why would you choose to have this celebration of love in a spot that didn’t reflect your history, lacked character and didn’t inspire you?
At Birtsmorton Court we have the best range of ceremony options for you to choose from. We are licensed for civil ceremonies in three beautiful spaces, we are one of only a handful of Cotswold wedding venues with a church on site and we have a wealth of stunning locations to hold blessings and any other ceremony you may wish to have. Come and chat to us about legalities, aisles, hymns, bells and all things ceremonial, we’re very happy to help.
The church of St. Thomas of Canterbury with St. Peter & St. Paul can be found in the heart of our grounds, only a short stroll away. You and up to 115 guests can enjoy a Christian ceremony or blessing in this beautifully maintained 14th Century church without any of the hassle involved with going from place to place.
There’s stunning stained glass windows, organ and organist, red carpet aisle and bells to ring out after you've tied the knot and are meandering through the gardens to drinks that have just been poured for you.
Once the private chapel for previous owners of Birtsmorton Court, this Church of England parish church is accessed through its own private gate with a tree-lined path making this a beautiful backdrop for the biggest walk of your life. Rev. Julie James will welcome you with a warm smile and open arms, guiding you through every step of the process.
There is a requirement of attendance as standard for a church ceremony. You would visit the church on six Sundays in the six months preceding your ceremony date, to witness your Banns being read and getting to know the congregation along the way.
We have a civil ceremony marriage license in three spaces for you to choose from. With its heavenly white flowers, fountain and pretty pergola, The White Garden is perhaps the most beautiful location in Worcestershire for a relaxed, outdoor civil ceremony. This garden bursts in to life from March onwards and has to be seen to be believed. There’s seating for 60 guests, but space for plenty more to stand.
The Great Hall is right at the centre of the main moated manor. Dating back to the 13th Century, this spectacular room is filled with character and history. It’s perfectly fitting for such a special occasion and can accommodate up to 80 guests. Once an Elizabethan games hall, The Garden Room has been beautifully converted in to an oak framed barn with feature sized windows and a canopy of fairy lights. An ideal space for civil ceremonies for larger guest numbers, the Garden Room can comfortably seat up to 150 guests.Read more
