Family Photography for Birthday Celebrations at Tortworth Court Hotel
-Its January and another Tortworth Court Photography recommendation by event staff at this stunning venue. Tortworth Court is a Four Pillars Hotel, located just off junction 14, M5 motorway, South Gloucestershire. A family from Warwickshire contacted me to help them with some celebration photography before their family meal. It was their mothers 80th birthday, so a big day. The hotel kindly set aside the Drawing Room for us to set up some studio lights and an area to take family shots around the characteristic furniture. What a blast! Liz and I had some fun directing the families through the many photographs. A brilliant afternoon.
As recommended wedding photographers, we have worked at Tortworth Court a few times now, it’s truly a beautiful place to get married or have that special celebration. The Kipling Room and Paxton Room are just magnificent for such occasions. A fantastic location surrounded by colourful English countryside and being part of the Cotswolds.
Weddings, anniversaries, celebrations at Tortworth Court is a thumbs up for us, so if interested, please contact us.
Tortworth Court Hotel
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.
