Celebrate your love outside with the magical four elements of air, fire, earth & water
Who are we...
We are a small family company owned and managed by local Cornish couple Elizabeth Tom and Alan Berry, whose family have been farmers and quarrymen in the immediate area for 11 generations.
If you're planning one of the most important days of your life and feel you want something more than the usual church, registry office or overblown hotel then inspiration can be hard to find. We're the closest you can get to an outside wedding in the UK.
Lots of people really want to celebrate their love in a more imaginative way & they want their union celebrated outside – not just outside the dusty confines as above – but outside in the living breathing environment with the magical four elements of air, fire, earth & water.
If you're dreaming of a woodland wedding, green wedding, wedding by water or perhaps a camping wedding then you've come to the right place. Our wood, willow and canvas Pavilion isn't on a manicured lawn but really outdoors; by a clear brook & under a canopy of oak and ash.
Declaring your love in front of family and friends is big stuff; whether you choose an old fashioned wedding or modern civil partnership is up to you - we can make it natural or funky, eco-chic or country.
You might be drawn to a vision of a fairy glade; where you exchange your vows by woodland and stream before musicians on fiddle and flute play you past banks of foxglove and wild rose. Children clutching posies skip alongside as you walk hand in hand to a tented space filled with food and flowers. Later candles in paper lanterns and tiny lights shine softly across the music and dancing - long after little ones are tucked up in their tipis.
You could be stirred by the rise of the eco-wedding; thinking green and sustainably from the beginning, you want to arrange ceremony and reception close to one another to reduce miles travelled, low impact accommodation for everyone to stay in, local suppliers of seasonal food and drink, in fact everything as low carbon and earth friendly as it can be.
Or go bold Bollywood; styled in hot pinks, saffron and red, with low seating and glittering saris, or English country house; afternoon tea served on vintage china under swags of retro bunting. Maybe use the pure waters of our lake to float coloured nightlights in your own private Festival of Light. Choose to set dress it all for glamour or lazy days.
Our beautiful valley and woods are perfect for Alice & Mad Hatter tea parties, Enid Blyton style adventures or just simple bbq’s and woodland picnics - celebrations as easy or detailed as you please. Whatever your dreams and style we can help make it the day you want it to be.
In a world talking excitedly of calculating your emissions, off setting is becoming big business. Stay with us, and you can genuinely pat yourself on the back. Your footprint while here could only be bettered by a survival expert. We source all our wood and other materials locally and employ local staff wherever possible.
We are members of Sustainability SouthWest, Futurefootprints and the COAST Project Network. We are also waiting categorization for the Green Business Tourism Award and feature in both Alastair Sawday’s Special & Green Places To Stay.
