An exotic setting to say ”I do”

Do you aspire to an occasion which is unique and intimate, a fairy tale wedding in magical surroundings? A sub-tropical garden with uninterrupted views of St Mawes bay towards St Anthony’s lighthouse, Lamorran Garden may just be the venue you’ve been looking for.

Situated on the Roseland peninsula, this Mediterranean garden is surrounded by the sea, with views out over the Lizard. Built in an Italianate style and planted in the style of the great gardens of the Italian Riviera, the intimate four-acre garden winds down the hillside to the sea, and is home to a vast array of palms, tree ferns and sub-tropical plants. Lamorran Gardens is perched on a south-facing hillside overlooking the sea, having been laid out to maximise its Mediterranean setting. The views here are staggering, in all directions.

Your wedding will be set in the ‘Cupola’, with an uninterrupted view of the ocean and the lighthouse as a backdrop. Photo opportunities abound here too, whether on one of the many bridges spanning the streams, in the Summer House looking out to the Percuil river and the boats at anchor, or beside and beneath exotic foliage – the choice is yours! As part of the celebration, drinks and canapés will await you on the terrace afterwards, the perfect way to begin your reception.

But don’t just take our word for it – head to Lamorran this spring and let the gardens speak for themselves!

A magical homestead under the stars

Treseren is located in Poldark country, just minutes from the spectacular north Cornish coast. A brand new and beautifully elegant venue for intimate weddings, this stunning Georgian country house is set in two acres of grounds with winding paths leading to secret flower-filled gardens. Encircled by mature trees, you’ll enjoy total privacy on your special day.

Picture a candlelit winter elopement in the Drawing Room, with a cosy wood burner and soaring Georgian windows and shutters overlooking the gardens. Wed on the terrace, or in the gardens in summer with a unique ceremony flowing inside to sign the register.

Licensed for civil ceremonies for up to 22 people, Treseren is a beautiful bolthole for small weddings with style.
