Wedding Open Days

We hold Open Days throughout the year to showcase all that our 19th century boutique hotel has to offer.  

My husband and I got married at the Elephant in June and the whole day was run absolutely brilliantly. We cannot thank Claire, Chris and the rest of the team enough – they really went above and beyond to make our day incredible.
I had my wedding at the elephant recently and it turned out to be an amazing day after nearly two years of planning. The staff, decorations, the Herd and the quirky rooms made it a special day which I won’t forget! Special thanks to Chris and Starr – fantastic service and made everything run smoothly for the whole wedding day!!
We just wanted to say a huge, huge thank you for helping us host the best day of our lives. Our friends kept telling us it was the best wedding they've ever been to and our families are still talking about it!
The Elephant was just the perfect venue to hold the relaxed and fun (but still classy and beautiful!) wedding we wanted. The day was everything we hoped for and so much more.
