Fran and Jeff didn't have a firm brief when we first met, but loved the idea of lots of fire, soft lighting and jewel tone florals. Our team curated a design board based on their personal style and sourced suppliers to perfectly align with their vision.
We made the most of the winter light and adorned the venue with hundreds of candles to create a beautifully romantic setting for the ceremony and drinks reception. The finest Champagne was enjoyed during the reception with live jazz musicians giving a hint of the party to come.
The element of surprise came as guests entered the Gillyflower for dinner, with The Function Band welcoming them in and had everyone signing along before starters were even served! Between courses, guests were singing, dancing and having the time of their lives.
After dinner guests enjoyed signature cocktails and were able to enjoy the outside space in the tipi, making use of the cosy lounge areas and internal fire pit.
Then came the reveal, the dance floor opened to showcase amazing foil streamers to bring the party vibe. Fran changed into an incredible sequin gown and the band had the dance floor packed; only pausing at midnight when we had fireworks to welcome in the new year.
Treating guests like VIP's:
The guest experience was at the forefront of their minds throughout the planning, and those lucky enough to have a room at Elmore Court were welcomed with personalised door hangers and hangover kits. Guests staying offsite were equally cared for with chaffeuers ready and waiting throughout the night to take them to their accommodation.
With a rail of faux fur jackets for guests to borrow, and s'mores to toast on the fire pit, the details for this event were next level.
Luxury table settings, the finest couple, and the most incredible party.
What a New Years Eve celebration this was!

Fran and Jeff - Elmore Court, gloucestershire
"Rachel was the most incredible wedding planner for our amazing NYE wedding. She made everything seamless and easy, and was there every step of the way including the wedding day. Every interaction we had with her was top notch, and every supplier she organised was exactly perfect for what we wanted to achieve. She really is the best in the business and you really can't do better. Thank you again for all your hard work."
Jennifer and Andrew, Berkeley Castle
"We just wanted to say a huge thank you for everything on Saturday. We truly had the best day ever. Everything went so smoothly thanks to you! We really appreciate everything that you did for us. Everyone was absolutely blown away by the castle (as we were). It looked incredible and we had the weather to match. We can’t thank you enough for everything you’ve done.”
Eliza and Simon, Marquee in the Cotswolds
"I cannot put into words how incredible Rachel was at producing the most spectacular, special and out of this world day for us, from start to finish her attention to detail, organisation, calmness and kindness went far beyond anything. Nothing was too much, however elaborate, wild, or annoying. On the day she managed everything so smoothly and beautifully, everything ran like clockwork and she worked so so hard, I really could NOT recommend Rachel and her team at Salt and Scent more!"
Caz and Jimmy, Elmore Court
"Rachel came recommended by our venue, as well as a mutual friend. She is extremely organised, creative, patient and easy to work with. We loved the process of planning our wedding with her and felt like she was a friend by the end of it all. Plus she put up with my constant concerns and decision-doubting! She clearly loves what she does and I'd have no qualms with recommending her"
