Waking up in our lovingly restored country house on the morning of your wedding is a wonderful way to start the day for any bride. With its distinctive regal façade and large light rooms with high ceilings, the house if packed full of traditional features including a priest hole in the bridal suite that dates back to the dissolution of the monasteries during the reign of Henry VIII!

Once you’re ready you’ll need not worry about transport as it’s just a matter of minutes to get down to the church and begin your walk down the aisle to your waiting groom.

Barn Wedding Venues In Cornwall

Make your way to the reception

If you’ve got guests coming from far and wide, or perhaps not from Cornwall who are unfamiliar with the local area, the logistics of getting everyone from the church to the reception venue can become something of a challenge so you’ll be pleased to hear that they’ll be able to join you on the short walk to our Mill.

Your reception

You’ll be able to enjoy your welcome drinks in our beautiful Mill, or if the sun is shining, these will be served just outside to make the most of the weather. You will then move on to our brand new and purpose-built Reception Barn, which has been designed to complement the original house and surrounding area. It’s light, airy and open plan layout makes it great for larger weddings with seating for up to 200 guests. It’s the perfect place to dance the night away and to use as a real blank canvas when it comes to decorations and really making it your own. It of course comes with its own bar which we’ll staff for you so all you need to worry about is having a great time with your guests.
