Plymouth's Duke of Cornwall Hotel was a finalist at the 2019 South West Wedding Awards. This iconic city centre hotel was shortlisted along with four other establishments from across the region for the title of best town-based wedding venue. In this category, the hotel stood alongside China Fleet Country Club, Tavistock Town Hall, The Dartmoor Lodge Hotel and The Grand Hotel with the top award going to China Fleet Country Club in Saltash.
The glitzy ceremony, which took place at the Crowne Plaza hotel near Plymouth Hoe, brought together many wedding industry professionals. Celebrating excellence across a wide spectrum of wedding-related services, the event saw awards handed out to businesses in fields that included entertainment, photography and cake design. The Duke of Cornwall Hotel's Wedding Coordinator Toni Sharpe was delighted that the hotel has been recognised once again as one of the region's top choices for couples planning their big day. She said: “To make the finals at the South West Wedding Awards 2019 was such an honour. It's a credit to the hotel and the dedicated team for their hard work, attention to detail and dedication to make every wedding day perfect.”
The hotel, an unmistakable landmark, has enjoyed a long tradition of serving as a wedding location. Its classically designed function spaces, such as the Hayward Room and grand Ballroom, have played host to couples tying the knot for many decades. As a licensed venue, the property is a popular choice in the city for civil wedding ceremonies. Other couples are attracted to its elegant interior for their reception after exchanging vows at a service in a nearby church. Wedding Coordinator Toni Sharpe believes that a combination of qualities make the Duke of Cornwall Hotel stand out as a wedding venue: “The hotel offers a flexible range of luxury wedding packages, with features that include fine dining, a red-carpet entrance and a Master of Ceremonies to make each big day run smoothly. From the warm welcome on arrival, to the grand decor and stunning honeymoon suites, the Duke offers a magical wedding day in an iconic location. For a venue with everything a couple needs for an unforgettably magical day, the Duke of Cornwall Hotel is the ideal choice.”
