At the edge of the world

Say ‘I do’ to the most spectacular Atlantic backdrop at the Polurrian.

Commanding outstanding views across Cornwall’s mesmerising west coast, the Polurrian is in a remarkable clifftop position, perfectly situated for guests to make the most of this stunning location. The accommodation options there are now better than ever, with a selection of six stylish new luxury villas as well as comfortable and homely hotel rooms, many of which showcase sea views or the mature Cornish gardens. As a wedding venue, it takes some beating.

Whereas in previous years brides and grooms have had to book the entire hotel on an exclusive basis for their wedding, now you’ll also have the opportunity to book their new function room, without having to stay, making it more accessible to couples planning a smaller event.

What’s more, non-exclusive weddings can take place 360 days of the year, and the function room enjoys some incredible views.

But that’s not all. Many dream of tying the knot outside, with the Atlantic ocean serving as the ultimate backdrop. So, with this in mind, the Polurrian is renovating its outdoor private patio, allowing couples to say ‘I do’ with stunning coastal views.

The hotel team create bespoke wedding packages for every couple; nothing is pre-packaged, so however you envisage your perfect day and whatever your budget, they are on hand and happy to help tailor your most special of days to you.

So, if you’ve been dreaming of getting married by the sea, you’ll be hard pushed to find a better coastal venue than the Polurrian. But don’t just take our word for it – contact the team and start making your dream a reality!
