The dream day

Have your dream world-away wedding at Karma St Martin’s on the Isles of Scilly.

The dream wedding – probably somewhere in the countryside or, better still, by the sea; somewhere far away from the hustle and bustle of central civilisation and, ideally, somewhere that can offer the utmost in boutique luxury for every aspect of your special day. And before you ask, no – you don’t need to travel abroad to have all of this, you just need to hop aboard the Scillonian or Skybus and head to the Isles of Scilly! Indeed, just 28 miles off Land’s End, this stunning and subtropical archipelago of islands seems a world away.

“…say “I do” with elegant architecture, landscaped seaside gardens and a luxurious spa…”

Adding to the island’s allure is Karma St Martin’s, its 30 bedrooms and boutique style bringing visitors back each year. It’s the perfect place to say “I do”, with elegant architecture, landscaped seaside gardens and a luxurious spa providing all the ingredients for your wedding.

Recognising that every detail counts, the team promises to lend a helping hand throughout the planning process, offering you professional advice and recommendations via the hotel’s event co-ordinator.

And, to ensure that your wedding is the bespoke experience that’s completely suited to you, Karma has a range of packages to choose from, packages which have been designed to assist brides and grooms alike with the organisation of the most important elements of the day.

Suggested menus and drinks will help ensure you get the most out of your budget, with only the finest seasonal local ingredients and wines to complement your celebrations. Vegetarian dishes and those for special dietary requirements are also available on request, meaning everyone can make the most of these sumptuous local flavours. It may be that you’ve already chosen your ideal menu, in which case the team will welcome your personal preferences and arrange a meeting with the hotel’s head chef to discuss your requirements – keeping you in control the whole way.

And then there’s the all-important accommodation. Wonderfully comfortable rooms and stunning views are great to wake up to and, after a relaxing breakfast, you can make the most of hotel’s facilities, including the spa! And, if you’d like to invite everybody to stay the night, special reductions for guests are available, so you can make a night of it and cement those treasured memories in true, island-party style.

So, if you have visions of an island wedding, just a stone’s throw from white sandy beaches and crystal clear waters, perhaps the team at Karma St Martin’s can help you realise your dream. After all, shouldn’t you make the most of your special day?
