Tortworth Court Hotel Wedding

Wedding Photography at Tortworth Court

Cotswold Weddings lush!! We always look forward to a Tortworth Court Hotel wedding and especially when it’s being held in the fantastic Tortworth Court Orangery, where on a sunny day the light just pours through all the glass.

We had already met with Jennie and Rob, the lovely Bride and Groom to-be from a recent pre-wedding photography shoot at Tortworth Court a few months ago, so we knew their day was going to be filled with lots of fun!

The Bride was assisted by four of her girlfriends dressed in beautiful blue long dresses and a cute little boy who was to carry a hand written sign board into the ceremony.

The ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening celebrations all took place in the historic Tortworth Court Orangery. The weather, right from the start was beautiful bright sunshine which made for some interesting shades and colours during the ceremony. A perfect wedding setting.

Why don’t you check out some of the other fantastic wedding venues we have visited over the years. For a Bride and Groom, there are so many beautiful locations to choose from now-a-days.

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 and recently had been purchased by Devere.
