Juvila & Garvan – Ellenborough Park Wedding

Ellenborough Park Wedding

A beautiful east meets west wedding, with Garvan’s coming from Ireland and Julia’s from Belarus there was always going to be plenty of laughs and a few drinks.

Both the bride and groom stayed at Ellenborough Park the night before so it made it easy for me to flit between the two.

Bridal Preparation.

As always I started with the bride as she prepared for her wedding day but was able to nip over to see the groom and his groomsmen a couple of times as they struggled with ties and cufflinks.

Juvila looked stunning in her dress and The venue was beautifully presented as always.

We managed a little escape session to get some couples photographs before the first dance and the grounds at Ellenborough park made a lovely backdrop.

  1. Ellenborough Park wedding says:

    First the positives: beautiful location close to Cheltenham and Broadway. Building itself is also beautiful and full of character. We were in the new wing and were pleased with the room, bed was very comfortable and the bathroom with both bath and shower was huge. The boot room with du Barry boots and coats was very useful in the rainy weather.
    Negatives: service in the brasserie was the worst I have ever experienced. For a start I don’t understand how a hotel can justify closing its main restaurant on a bank holiday when the place is full – do they not want business? As a result we were given a reservation for the brasserie. We waited 45 minutes at the bar to be seated in which time the main waiter ignored us and did not even make eye contact. When we were finally seated I could see many plates of steak chips being sent back because the chips were not cooked through. However my partners starter of calamari was burnt! He was so hungry by the this point that he ate it. Main courses were again nothing to write home about. We then waited for another half an hour for the waiters to come over and offer dessert or coffee but no such luck. We ended up walking out. Waiting staff are clearly poorly trained and have no clue what they are doing. Complaint made to the reception and they took food items off the bill. They said they were aware there were some problems it is a real shame that a beautiful building is being run like fawlty towers.

    Fabulous quaint venue with direct views of Cheltenham race course. Great first impressions. Stayed for 2 nights in a lovely room beside the outdoor pool. On arrival they offered to park the car and unload bags. Dined in Beaufort dining room on 1st night – delicious food and great service. Dined in Brasserie on 2nd night (Beaufort was closed due to bank holiday). Food was quite nice but service wasn’t good though a lot of waiters appeared very young and inexperienced and maybe just learning the ropes on what was a very busy night in the restaurant. Breakfast was a combo of buffet and a hot food menu. Buffet tended to be slightly understocked but hot food was tasty with a nice selection available. The outdoor pool was heated. The indoor spa and gym looked small but adequate but didn’t use either so cannot comment fully. Staff provided a map for a very scenic walk through the forest behind the hotel to the highest point in the Cotswolds which had fantastic views. Overall a very memorable stay. Would highly recommend for couples looking for a quiet break.
