Cornwall Living 2018

Outside bride

Spend your special day amidst family, friends and an idyllic outdoor atmosphere with Cornish Tipi Weddings.

Let’s be honest, everybody loves Cornwall. And while people still flock to our sunny shores for the ultimate seaside holiday, people are now flooding to this stunning county to experience a unique wedding destination! Getting married in the great outdoors, often with a festival vibe or boho country feel, is a growing dream with city dwellers who want to create something really different for their day of days.

Cornish Tipi Weddings is the top location for the wild at heart with its incredibly pretty woodland, freshwater lake, streams and meadow areas for ceremonies, receptions and camping. It’s a quirky venue set up alongside the 20-year success of Cornish Tipi Holidays.

Outdoor wedding venues are becoming increasingly popular and this one is no exception, with a famous soap star – Eastenders in case you’re interested – marrying there a couple of years ago and fashion designers coming on honeymoon to one of the very first outdoor wedding locations in the UK. Add a couple of dozen fully equipped tipis, and the option to bring your own tents or campervans, and you’ve got the perfect mix for an unforgettable wedding weekend. Two decades of camping experience on this lovely 20-acre site means that the team behind both the wedding and holidays know all about the importance of special time spent with family and friends. Being so close to the coast – only five minutes from the beautiful Port Isaac – they also know all about the swift-changing Cornish weather and always advise wedding guests and campers to come well prepared with everything from sun cream to wellies!

Another top tip is to bring your own tipple! The Cornish Tipis team don’t believe in corkage charges; bring all your own drinks and set up a rustic bar with flowers, homemade signs and fairy lights to give a homely feel a world away from the formal bar experience of hotels and caterers.

Whether it’s an elopement special just for two – yes, that is one of the packages – or a grand affair for over 200 family and friends, you’ll find it difficult to do better than this venue for romance and Cornish style.
