Tortworth Court Wedding Anniversary

Wedding Anniversary Photos at Tortworth Court

Tortworth Court wedding venue is such a wonderful place. As Wedding Photographers South Gloucestershire, naturally, we have worked there a few times now, so it’s just great, as we feel it’s one big team all working together to make the bride and grooms day that extra special.

We arrived at Tortworth Court with a big threat of rain but with some sunny periods. No worries I thought, we have a plan B!! Just as I set up camera, the warm sun popped through the clouds. I knew it was going to be a fantastic day for Sue & Stephen, their 25th wedding anniversary on this July Sunday afternoon. I have mentioned it before, but what a gorgeous location for any family and friends to gather and witness such events. The Kipling Suite was again professionally laid out for their celebration meal and their ceremony in the colourful Paxton Room next door. As soon as the signing of their certificates was complete, drinks were served on the lawn in front of the house. Liz and I often say, it is always an honour and a privilege to be chosen to photograph any wedding or event, whether it be large or small. Smiling faces, children having fun, what a cracking day. Here is a small selection of images from the main gallery.

Tortworth Court is a Victorian mansion in South Gloucestershire built in Tudor style between 1848 and 1853 by Earl of Ducie, Lord Mayor of London. It’s architect was Samuel Sanders Teulon. The house is situated in the civil parish of Tortworth, near Thornbury in South Gloucestershire, England.

During World War II the mansion became a naval training base for coding and signals, under the name of HMS Cabbala, and a mast was erected in the high reception hall. After the war, the buildings constructed for the hospital and, for a time the house itself, became HM Prison Leyhill. Tortworth Court was then used as a training school for prison officers.The property was designated a Grade II listed by English Heritage in 1991. By the 1990s, however, it had become derelict, and suffered a large fire in 1991.It was thereafter restored to its original style and extended at a reputed cost of £25 million. In June 2001 it reopened as a hotel operated by Four Pillars Hotels.
