Beautiful, unique and enchanting, The Lost Gardens of Heligan offers an extraordinarily romantic setting for your wedding. Located in Pentewan, close to Cornwall’s south coast, the estate had been lost amidst the brambles of time since the outbreak of the First World War until the discovery of a hidden door which led to Europe’s largest garden restoration project. Today, the award-winning 200-acre site is an earthly paradise – as peaceful as it is picturesque – where bamboo meets majestic tree ferns, meandering pathways weave through camellias and rhododendrons, the historical walled gardens, lamb-filled paddocks and the sound of birdsong.
The gardens are spectacular during all seasons, ensuring the most magical wedding experience. Hosting intimate ceremonies and receptions for up to 60 guests in a choice of indoor and outdoor event spaces, your wedding day can play out in the most beautiful of settings.
What’s more, for couples planning a wedding with sustainability in mind, approximately 85% of the produce used in Heligan’s menus comes directly from the estate – a mere 157 yards from garden to plate. Paired with a bespoke drinks menu of Cornish wines and spirits, your wedding breakfast of fresh, seasonal produce could feature everything from fresh fruit and vegetables to Heligan’s own rare breed livestock. Whether you opt for a sit-down dinner or a relaxed al fresco barbecue, you’re assured a feast with a minimal carbon footprint, all coordinated by the dedicated wedding team.
Armed with a passion for creating weddings reflective of each couple’s style and story, The Lost Gardens of Heligan promises a beautifully memorable celebration in a unique setting.
