Wedding Photography at Tortworth Court
-As Wedding Photographers for South Gloucestershire, we always get excited when asked to photograph a wedding at Tortworth Court, a splendid Four Pillars Hotel. The warm sun really did finally pop out for Leslie & Anthony over Tortworth Court. A gorgeous location for a small family gathering to witness the lovely couple get married. The Kipling Suite was very professionally laid out which made it such a cosy event with family and friends, and afterwards, plenty of fun was had by all. As Tortworth Court Wedding Photographers, we were made to feel part of their family. Liz and I often say, its always an honour and a privilege to be chosen to photograph any wedding, whether it be a large or small event. Here is a small selection of images from the main gallery.

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.
