Nestled amidst lush sub-tropical gardens on Falmouth’s picturesque sea front, St Michael’s Hotel is a contemporary sanctuary, combining marine inspired design with a laidback ambience.
The hotel has recently undergone an extensive refurbishment – and the stylish new interiors, top-notch service and fine food epitomise the zenith in Cornish seaside luxury. The restaurant and the Regatta Suite, which is licensed for civil ceremonies, have been modernised to create chic, spacious settings with views across the gardens and glittering ocean beyond. A contemporary oval bar is a stunning new addition, while the new Locker Room, a nautical inspired library, makes a perfect backdrop for photographs of the grooms party.
The hotel facilities include an indoor pool, Jacuzzi, steam room, sauna and gym alongside a full range of spa and beauty treatments using products from Espa and Spiezia. A range of pamper packages have been designed to leave brides and grooms looking and feeling rejuvenated and ravishing for the wedding day.
A wedding at St Michael’s Hotel is a relaxed yet decadent affair. For the ultimate in dreamy arrivals, a stroll through the gardens to meet your groom and guests will set the swoon factor to maximum. Ceremonies may take place either in the Regatta Suite for up to 80 guests or the Gallery for up to 50 guests, both rooms boasting an abundance of natural light and idyllic views.
The gardens make a beautiful setting to toast the nuptials before heading to the sands of Gyllyngvase Beach for photographs before a dreamy waterside backdrop.
A high standard of cuisine comes courtesy of St Michael’s AA Rosette awarded restaurant, The Flying Fish, which is renowned for its delectable dishes utilising fresh Cornish produce. The personal factor is paramount and the chef welcomes couples’ input in designing a bespoke wedding menu.
As evening falls, the Regatta Suite becomes the setting for a party for up to 150 guests. You may even choose to hire out the whole hotel for an exclusive wedding party.
Retire to a modish and supremely comfortable honeymoon suite overlooking the sea – and wake up in one of Cornwall’s most vibrant and beautiful settings to commence the first chapter of married life.
