Reasons to Get Married in Cornwall

You’ve popped the question, decided on a date, thought about who to invite (and possibly disagreed!) – now you need to pick a venue. It’s a crucial part of the day, as your guests first impression will be formed around it, and it’s the setting for the most important day of your life. If you want a wedding in a picturesque, rural setting – but also want the possibility of having a beach wedding – why not consider Cornwall?

Known for having the most picturesque beaches in the country, Cornwall is without a doubt one of the most beautiful counties there is. Are you desperate for a beach wedding, but not prepared to take the plunge and tie the knot abroad? Cornwall is the best option for you! If you catch it on the right day, Cornwall can be easily as stunning as any beach in the south of Spain, at a fraction of the cost. Plus, you avoid the hassle of asking all your mates to fly abroad for your wedding, which can be expensive and inconvenient for anyone with kids, a full-time job, a dog… (let’s face it, it’s inconvenient for everyone!)

If you want somewhere remote, but aren’t so fussed on the whole beach thing (it’s not for everyone!), Cornwall still has some of the prettiest countryside scenery around. Think fields as far as the eye can see, hills winding around in the background, and the type of cute cottages you see on the back of postcards… we’re sold!

If you’ve got your heart set on getting hitched in Cornwall, rest assure we’ve compiled a list of the best gay-friendly wedding venues, so all you have to do is pick your favourite. If you and your partner are regal, why not get married in a castle or stately home? Of course, for the edgier couple, there are a range of more alternative wedding venues, including a winery and a ‘boutique elopement barn’. Of course, Cornwall is also home to the Eden project, which you can get married in if you fancy it!

Still not convinced? Here are some interesting facts about Cornwall to sweeten the deal…

1. An estimated 7,000,000,000,000,000 grains of sand lie on Perranporth Beach on the north coast. This could make for a cute wedding toast (I love you more than there are grains of sand… you get the picture)
2. Cornish fudge is one of the most famous – and tastiest – types of fudge in the country!
3. Anyone who’s met a Cornish person will know that the Cornish are very fond of their independence. They have a separate flag, national anthem, and 3 patron saints.
4. Compared to the rest of Britain, Cornwall has relatively warm weather. This could make it perfect for your summer wedding!
