A setting like no other, De Vere Tortworth Court marries Victorian architecture with contemporary elegance to set the stage for your wedding in South Gloucestershire. Situated just north of Bristol and easily accessible from the motorway, the venue is a grade II listed historic hotel in stunning surroundings – a place where a centuries-old story meets an exceptionally modern experience.
Recorded in the Domesday Book, the estate was the ancestral seat of the Ducie family for 350 years. Following a multi-million pound restoration, the manor house now combines 21st-century style with a wealth of original features and fittings.
The Orangery, a grand conservatory built in 1874, offers an ornamental glass ceiling and windows and fine detailing for guests up to 100. Its outdoor dining area is also perfect for drinks in the summer.
For larger weddings, the Westminster Suite, for up to 280 guests, is a popular choice with floor-to-ceiling windows and views out to the grounds. For more intimate weddings, the recently refurbished Victoria suite offers plenty of original features with its wooden panelled walls and high ceilings. And when it comes to the great outdoors, explore the 30 acre estate and you’ll find the Victorian arboretum, housing more than 300 plant and tree specimens, the perfect setting for your wedding photographs. The picturesque pagoda overlooks the arboretum and is a wonderful setting to say your vows.
At De Vere Tortworth Court you’ll receive a dedicated wedding team to help you every step of the way; from first enquiry, to the day itself. Your wedding menus will be curated by the Executive Chef and on the big day, the team will be on-hand throughout to deliver a day that is elegant, thoughtful and a true celebration of your relationship.
