Getting married in the local area
Cornwall is the perfect place to get married and you can prepare for the big day at Blue Monkey 5* holiday cottage.
With plenty of room for 10 people and some great amenities, it is ideal for hosting family and friends.
Each bedroom has full-length mirrors and we can offer some great local contacts to help plan the day (please see our directory below).
Here are some outstanding (and different!) wedding venues near Blue Monkey.
It’s the best day of your life! And your idea of the perfect wedding won’t be the same as the next person’s. Therein lies the problem with the conventional ‘wedding package’ approach.
You might want a full-on bells and whistles wedding or something simple and quirky; tip-top caterers or our local fish and chip van. Polhawn Fort gives you the ingredients to whip up a unique wedding that’s perfect for you.
Royal Plymouth Corinthian Yacht Club
The Royal Plymouth Corinthian Yacht Club was one of the first premises in Plymouth to be licensed for civil marriages and has proved a popular venue ever since. Its stunning waterside location offers fantastic views of Plymouth Sound.
Treganna Castle, St Ives
Tregenna Castle Hotel is perfect for a fairytale wedding. This ivy covered castle stands in a magnificent 72-acre estate with far reaching sea views over St Ives, making it one of the most romantic places in Cornwall.

Since becoming a hotel in 1996, Kitley House has been the favoured wedding venue in Plymouth and South Devon for many couples. We can accommodate you within the house or in a marquee in our formal gardens.

35 minutes from Blue Monkey, Lantallack is a magical wedding venue close to the Tamar Valley and 20 minutes from Plymouth.

From a traditional wedding at a local medieval church to a civil ceremony on site, Lantallack is an idyllic place in which to create your perfect country wedding.
You can get married in our unique historic 17th century Cart Barn or outside on the beautiful Wisteria Walk. The Lawn Terrace is also perfect for a traditional Cornish wedding where you can have a beautiful clear-span marquee for up to 150 people.
It is difficult to imagine a more romantic wedding location in South Devon than Langdon Court, the quintessential English Manor nestled in the rolling South Hams Countryside with a stunning Jacobean garden and lakeside setting.
From flowers to music, lighting to photographers, you will have a personal wedding co-ordinator who will ensure a seamless transition throughout your wedding experience.
