About Port Eliot Estate, Cornwall wedding venue

The Setting...

A magnificent Grade I listed house & gardens owned and occupied by the Countess of St Germans, Port Eliot is one of the most beautiful places in Cornwall; providing a perfect backdrop for your wedding day.’

The estate stands in stunning secluded grounds and parkland, along the idyllic banks of the River Lyhner. It is conveniently located a short walk from St Germans railway station, and a 25 minute drive, across the Tamar Bridge, to Plymouth.


The Vibe...

A Port Eliot wedding can be a classical fairy-tale or a story of rock ’n’ roll decadence (or sometimes, a little bit of both). As a private house with extensive grounds, a covetable contacts book and an open mind, Port Eliot provides an unforgettable setting for all styles of celebration.

Weddings at Port Eliot are magical and unforgettable occasions. Due to the nature of the site, they tend to have a vibrant, festival feel – a ceremony in the stunning Georgian Orangery, with its romantic chandeliers entwined with flowers, followed by a truly magical wedding celebration in a giant tipi, taking in the beautiful view of the park.

Other locations licensed for civil ceremonies include; the impressive Drawing Room, with its magnificent views of the Repton Park, the imposing Dining Room with its roaring fire, and the Conservatory and Library provide intimate spaces for the smaller wedding party.

After your ceremony, you may like to wow your guests with a Champagne reception in the famous Round Room. Designed by Sir John Soane, it is considered one of his outstanding achievements with a mural painted by Robert Lenckiewicz regarded as his masterpiece. It has to be seen to be believed.

At Port Eliot they can also provide beautiful locations for your marquee reception. The Boat House Lawn is a hidden gem in the woodland garden, with views over the Lynher estuary. Or perhaps you would prefer the Park with the magnificent Port Eliot house and St German’s church as your romantic backdrop.

You really are utterly spoilt for choice…
