Why you won’t regret eloping to Cornwall

Gone are the days when eloping meant running away without telling friends or family. These days, the term ‘eloping’ has evolved to include small ceremonies with best friends and close relatives. Reasons for eloping have changed too, with many deciding to do so in order to enjoy a stress-free wedding, to save money and a desire to create their own beautiful story to share with friends and family.

The Garden Room at the Bedruthan Hotel and Spa is the perfect intimate space for elopements. You’ll eat on long trestle tables and enjoy a three-course feast of locally sourced, freshly prepared produce. You can even add canapés and cheeseboards to make it just right for you! After dinner, gather around the fire pit, toast marshmallows and share stories with your best friends as you watch the sun set over Mawgan Porth – the perfect end to your perfect wedding day.

Wedding gift inspiration

Commemorate your loved ones’ special day with a beautiful piece of Cornish artwork. Mike Lacey’s wave surf art captures stunning ocean shots that will forever remind the happy couple of their Cornish wedding by the sea. The Cornish Heart image in particular would make a really romantic gift. Taken at sunrise it’s a one in a million shot of a perfect heart within the barrel of a wave. Or, if you’re looking for wedding favour inspiration then why not present your guests with a wave art coaster, so they can be reminded of your special day over a cup of coffee in the morning and be inspired to get out and explore the coast thanks to the inspirational images that are available.

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!

Beachside bridals at Catch, Mawgan Porth

Watch your first sunset as Mr and Mrs on the beach, champagne in hand at Catch Seafood Bar & Grill. Design your wedding menu, from Cornish lobsters and oysters to West Country steaks, vegan mezzes or even battered fish and chips – you decide!

You can choose to keep it intimate with best friends or erect a marquee; spend the afternoon surfing or playing beach rounders whilst Catch lights the barbecue and keeps the wine flowing.

The upstairs Beach Pad is perfect for sleepy toddlers, showering off or for a few days’ ‘mini-moon’ before or after the big day.

Not only is Catch incredibly versatile as a venue, recently married Charlotte Adams tells us: “It was also the best value venue we found, by far!”

So what’s not to love? To see how Catch can make your wedding by the sea that extra bit special, be sure to give the team a call.
