Tents, tipis & marquees: Cornish Tipi Weddings, St Kew

Cornish Tipi Weddings, St Kew

This quirky venue is located in a secret woodland valley situated just five minutes from the wild Atlantic coast and surrounded by 16 acres of countryside blooming with wild ferns, bluebells, ancient oaks and meadowsweet. There's a shimmering lake at the heart of it where ceremonies can take place by the water's edge. A romantic idea at dusk is to host a Festival of Light ceremony with floating candles and flowers released into the water. Ceremonies are also conducted in the fully licensed wedding pavilion made from wood, willow and canvas, set deep in the heart of the secret valley by a clear brook. It seats up to 50 guests inside, with space for a further 50 loved ones outside on the decking. For larger weddings of more than 100 people, additional seating can be arranged outside. Straw bales covered with coloured rugs are a great way of accommodating larger numbers.
