For a sense or history, magic and grandeur, the magnificent Pendennis and St Mawes Castles are ideal.

These romantic Tudor castles, built circa 1540 by Henry VIII, enjoy the most prominent positions on the headland in Falmouth and on the water's edge in St Mawes. Exclusively yours for the big day, admire the spectacular sea views, romantic circular ceremony spaces and spiral stone staircases.

At Pendennis Castle enjoy a drink on the lawn and look out at the magnificent seascapes or for a romantic winter wedding, celebrate with flickering candles and warming ginger wine. The acoustics are perfect for live music and with the soft fairy lights woven around the wooden pillars, it's incredibly atmospheric.

For a special touch, why not sound the historical guns!

At St Mawes Castle, cross the stone bridge, beneath the arched doorway as you make your grand entrance.

Climb the staircase to the candlelit alter in the intimate Upper Gun Room at the top of the castle. Or why not tie the knot outdoors on the terrace overlooking the sea?

Both castles promise a truly unique, romantic and intimate celebration, weaving tales of history and Cornish charm into your very own coastal celebration.
