Looking for an intimate, romantic and quintessentially Cornish wedding venue? Trereife is a beautiful family owned estate, with immaculate gardens, that is immersed in Kernowian history and specialises in cosy weddings…
Set in the rolling countryside just west of Penzance, Trereife boasts breath-taking views that look out across the stunning Mount’s Bay to the impressive landmark of St Michael’s Mount. Here you can have the best of both country and coast!
This beautiful Elizabethan manor house is the family home of the Le Grice family, who have been hosting weddings and events there for over a decade. Once the dwellings of Charles Valentine Le Grice, a peer of Romantic poets Lamb and Coleridge, Trereife has recently undergone a restoration by the seventh generation of the family; and both the house and gardens are now open to the public.
This Queen Anne manor house offers a tranquil location for intimate celebrations, where you and your very close friends and family can enjoy celebrating with no interruptions – as the venue is exclusively yours for 48 hours.
For brides wishing to get ready for their big day, Trereife have a beautiful bridal dressing room sumptuously decorated in French style and overlooking the modern parterre garden. There’s plenty of space for bridesmaids to have their hair and make-up done; hanging space for all your dresses and, of course, bubbly close by! This room is available to couples throughout the wedding celebration (so you can steal a kiss away from the cameras!).
Trereife specialise in intimate romantic Kernowian weddings for between 40-60 guests in the manor house. Choose to get married in the main drawing room or in the new garden gazebo, signing the register inside. Celebrations can be a lavish sit down meal in function room for your guests, using their caterers, or you hire your own; whereas larger functions take place in marquees in the grounds for up to 250 guests at an additional cost.
Make full use of their quaint cobbled courtyard, immaculate terraced lawns, and beautiful walled gardens throughout your special day. Trereife is in fact one of only five homes in England to have modern parterre gardens! Also, the Le Grice family now have a licence for outdoor as well as indoor ceremonies; so if you fancy saying “I do” al fresco style, you can!
Drinks and canapés usually take place on the lawn and guests can enjoy the grounds whilst there is ample opportunity for gorgeous wedding photography.
As part of the venue hire, Trereife offers wedding parties accommodation for between 14 and 20 guests in rooms or apartments. And you can choose to have either a bed and breakfast arrangement in the beautiful country house, or you can opt for self-catering.
The stunning honeymoon suite is included in the wedding packages for couples to enjoy. Retire – happily married! – to the beautiful Coleridge Suite with its glorious free-standing roll-top bath and window seats reflecting Charles Valentine Le Grice’s role in Romantic poetry. In the morning, you’ll wake up to freshly ground coffee and a delicious home-cooked breakfast made using the very best of Cornwall’s local produce.
The owners accommodate all types of weddings from intimate fine dining receptions, luxuriously large banquets to fabulously fun festival weddings. Whatever your dream is – just let the team know what you would like, and they’ll do their utmost to make it come true!
