Top Cornwall Wedding Venues
I am so lucky to live just around the corner to some amazing Cornwall wedding venues. From stunning hotels on the Cornish coast, to rustic barns, yurts and breathtaking castles. I’ve added a few of my favourite venues below.
Carbis Bay Hotel offers a stunning location that makes it one of the top UK wedding venues. Having shot many weddings here, I can fully vouch for how amazing this venue is. From a wedding photography perspective, this is a Cornwall wedding photographers dream. There are many areas of the estate which can be used for the ceremony and many spots for relaxed photographs after! The rooms, most with floor to ceiling windows are light and bright for great getting ready shots. From the sun decking you can shoot with St Ives in the background. The golden sands and turquoise seas are just the perfect photo opportunity!
Gwel an Mor, Portreath, one of a few unique venues in Cornwall. The wedding ceremony itself takes place in a beautiful cotton canvas yurt! If that isn’t boho enough, a woodland valley (carpeted with blue bells in spring) can be used for picture perfect moments! The Barn itself is swathed in a beautiful fabric marquee-style lining and hung with chandeliers for a magical atmosphere. Many of the venue’s natural elements make for an amazing wild themed wedding!
Nancarrow Farm embraces simple pleasures and the great outdoors. The farm is nestled in a hidden tree lined valley near Truro, not far from St Agnes. It is surrounded by beauty and nature, offering exclusive access so you can fully immerse yourself in celebration. They can accommodate parties of any size in any season. I love this venue for intimate weddings in the winter lit with candles. Rustic.
Pendennis Castle, Falmouth. The finest coastal fortresses, with sea views in every direction it is a dream wedding venue. The heavy granite stone and atmospheric lighting makes a romantic and magical setting inside. There are so many opportunities for great photos around the grounds and on the top of the fortress (up the tiny stairs!). Guests can enjoy a glass in the surroundings of the circular Keep! The elevated position of the castle allows for some amazing group photographs!
Driftwood Spars, St Agnes. Just a stone's throw from Trevaunance Cove, it is a intimate characterful wedding venue. The pub's interior is constructed from massive wooden spars, salvaged from the many shipwrecks that occurred along the coast. It has a choice of rooms and an outdoor garden space overlooking the sea. This makes it a perfect venue for any season, from sunshine-filled beach weddings to storm watching ceremonies in winter. The beer is decent too!
Headland Hotel, Newquay. Perched on the cliff edge, Newquay’s Headland Hotel overlooks one of the UK’s most beautiful surf-tastic beaches. The the grandeur of the Headland Hotel and its victorian heritage not only transport you to a bygone era, makes you feel very much at home. The high ceilings and double height windows, with the most amazing views over the Atlantic, feel luxuriously spacious. The beautiful sweeping staircase is ideal for some great photographs, perfect for winter weddings in front of their Christmas tree! The hotel offers a fabulous High Tea and is one of my favourite venues for small elopements or intimate weddings.
Treganna Castle, St Ives. The view you will experience once you have passed through the gates at Tregenna Castle is nothing short of spectacular. High above St Ives with a breath-taking panoramic view over the whole of the bay and Godrevy Lighthouse. In the summer months it’s possible to get married outdoors under the Pavilion with the view as a backdrop. I love Treganna Castle because it is so adaptable, small and large weddings work perfectly. It’s also possible to access the beach for some stunning photographs.
There are very few Cornish wedding venues that I haven’t photographed, but these are my favourite venues! If you are looking for a photographer for your perfect Cornish wedding venue then please do not hesitate to contact me!
