The beauty of lockdown 2.0 - yes there are some positives - is having more time on your hands to dedicated to planning your 2021/22 wedding. Plenty of hours can be spent looking through magazines, and browsing the internet to look for all-things wedding! And, you can even view potential wedding venues for the big-day via virtual tours like this one from The Duke of Cornwall Hotel, Plymouth...
This magnificent hotel is positioned on the fringe of the city, adjacent to Millbay Park which offers a fantastic green space as well as period steps and pillars perfect for big-day photographs. A short stroll from the hotel is another wonderful photographic opportunity at Plymouth Hoe, which offers sensational ocean views across Plymouth Sound.The hotel is a Gothic Grade 11 listed building with feature windows, towers and turrets. It boasts a canopy entrance, ornate architectural features and revolving entrance doors. The interior offers a wealth of historic features, with grand rooms and hallways, glittering chandeliers, period columns and a stunning Grade II listed sweeping staircase.Ceremonies take place in a variety of areas. The restaurant with its domed ceiling is a wonderful setting and suited to a micro wedding of 15 people as well as a much larger affair. The Millbay Suite is a sophisticated setting for an intimate ceremony of eight people boasting a feature fireplace and the Hayward Room is a magnificent space featuring beautiful bay windows showcasing superb views over King Point Marina, again for a minimum of eight people and a maximum of 50 (when restrictions lift). Receptions large and small take place in the Ballroom, a grand space with atmospheric lighting, a fixed stage for entertainment, a private bar and a dancefloor.
We love... that overnight accommodation is included for the couple in a four-poster room with champagne, flowers, chocolate and a full English breakfast.
