Say ‘I do’ in St Ives
St Ives Harbour Hotel is idyllically positioned close to Porthminster beach with sweeping views over the harbour.
Fully renovated in 2018, and with jaw-dropping views out to sea from many rooms, is this 52-room gem. Just steps from Blue Flag awarded Porthminster beach, famous for its crystal clear waters and only a short stroll from the harbour, the hotel’s location is second to none.

There are two great event rooms – the Harbour Suite and The Godrevy Sands Suite – both boasting panoramic sea views and each perfect for wedding ceremonies, breakfasts and receptions for up to 200 guests. Godrevy Sands is the slightly smaller of the two and tends to be used for pre and post-ceremony receptions. Happy couples-to-be usually take their vows in the Harbour Suite, against the backdrop of golden sands, open skies and harbour views, before moving downstairs for a reception on the private terrace. Photos can be taken on the lawn or on the beach, capitalising on the spectacular surroundings.
For exceptional food and drink throughout your most special of days, the passionate chefs have prepared a selection of special menus to help you do so. Alternatively of course, you may choose to create your own. Using only the highest quality, locally sourced ingredients to delight your guests, you’ll have the option to partake in a tasting session first. To ensure your special day runs smoothly, and to take away the stress of organising it, the hotel even provides a dedicated wedding co-ordinator who will help you every step of the way.
For before and after your event, the team can offer your guests discounted room rates for those wishing to stay, including access to the luxury spa, restaurant and bar. It’s next to the beach too, where the St Ives Surf School offers surfing and coasteering, and only a short walk to the excellent Tate St Ives. Not to mention the world-famous Eden Project is just over one hour away by car!
Rightly considered one of Cornwall’s best boutique hotels, St Ives Harbour Hotel is one of the most sought-after wedding venues in the UK, so make sure to get in touch with the team and make your wedding dream a reality.
The hotel is a two-minute walk to St Ives station, or a twenty-minute drive to Penzance, where you can catch trains directly to London. Alternatively, Newquay Airport is only one hour away.
