What to Expect at our Wedding Open Day


As one of the finest wedding venues in Cheltenham, our upcoming wedding open day on Sunday 14th October is not to be missed.

Wedding open days are invaluable when you and your partner begin planning your special day. Not only are these events a fantastic opportunity to be inspired, they also afford you the chance to meet with hand-picked and trusted suppliers. Read on to discover what to expect.

Prior to the Day

Lists are going to be your best ally when planning your special day. Whether you choose to have a notebook full of your handwritten wishes, a book of clippings from magazines or regularly updated Pinterest boards, this preparation will help you communicate with suppliers who can offer advice and cost estimations for your dream day. Don’t forget to bring these with you, along with an agreed upon budget. It is also beneficial to have a ballpark date or month for when you want to get married as this can help the venue and suppliers gauge popularity and costings. The biggest decision you need to make before you attend an open day? Deciding who will join you. Your partner, your parents, your bridesmaids, best friend or solo – the choice is yours, but make sure they are supportive of your ideas.

When you Arrive

As you approach our impressive 15th century country estate, we’re confident you will start to envisage the most important day of your life. Perhaps your mind begins to plan, imagining your loved ones mingling around the grounds and making a mental note of where your photographs will be taken… Head inside and you will be greeted by a member of the team who will show you where you can enjoy your welcome drink and canapés. From here, you will be given plenty of time to explore the property – Ellenborough will be set up for an elegant and inviting civil ceremony, complete with wedding breakfast.

Meeting the Suppliers

Our venue will be dressed to invoke the beauty and atmosphere of a wonderfully romantic wedding. As you explore the property, you will encounter our hand-picked suppliers and be able to see examples of their offering, including flowers, stationery, cakes and photography.

All of our exceptional suppliers have brought their skills and special touches to weddings at Ellenborough Park over the years, making each wedding truly unforgettable. Whether you need help with wedding stationary, music and entertainment or cakes, décor and transport, our trusted suppliers become an extension of our very own team and will work tirelessly to deliver the day of your dreams.
