Where can our ceremony take place?
We offer a choice of locations within the estate that are licensed for wedding ceremonies. Inside the house we have the option of three spectacular rooms, the music room, the library, and the drawing room. For a more intimate indoor ceremony the Tea Rooms with its remarkable vaulted ceilings is the perfect size. If you would prefer your marriage ceremony outdoors, we can offer some wonderfully romantic options around the grounds from the arbour to the fountain. If the weather lets us down on the day, we will provide an alternative in one of our licensed rooms in the house.
Do you have onsite accommodation?
Yes, we have a boutique camping field in the Walled Gardens. We have two beautiful yurts - one of these is the Bridal Suite Yurt, a couple of shepherds huts, a pod, a cabin and lots of lovely bell tents.
Do you charge corkage?
No, if we run a paying bar then we don't charge corkage on an allowance of celebration drinks and table wine (allowance based on your number of guests)
We had the best day of our lives on our wedding day at Pencarrow! The sun shone, the garden was in full bloom and the venue looked absolutely incredible. Our guests commented on how amazing our venue was, with so many different locations for our guests to enjoy throughout the day. After many postponements, we finally had our dream day and it was worth the wait! Thank you Pencarrow team.
We looked at SO MANY venues before we finally found Pencarrow, and instantly knew it was the place to bring our festival wedding vision to life. Even in the depths of winter when we first visited, Nico painted a wonderful picture for us, and we knew that she and her team understood what we wanted, and would help us bring it to life. In the end we had to wait a LONG time for this to come to pass, as Covid delayed our wedding by 2 years. Throughout that process Nico and Jasmine held our hands, reassured us at every turn, and never wavered in their support of us, and helping us find not one, not two, but THREE new dates. It was worth the wait. Our wedding day surpassed every expectation we had, and all our guests (no exaggeration) said it was the best wedding they have ever been to. And we have all been to a lot of weddings at this point! The scale of Pencarrow means that it feels like you're getting three wedding venues in one - from the beautiful ceremony in front of the wisteria laden arbor, to the gardens in front of the house where we had champagne and canapes, and then we hopped into our authentic indian tuktuk to drive over to the walled gardens where the marquee awaited for the rest of the night. And that's not even including the Nightcap bar in the woods where we partied with our silent disco headsets until 4am. We had festival flags lining the way to our tent, we had a children's tent set up for the little ones which was absolutely gorgeous. We had a pizza truck the night before for our camping guests - sorry GLAMPING - very much glamping, particularly for the bride and groom in our beautiful yurt. I cannot say enough about how much we loved our venue, and the pride we felt at how many of our guests praised it for how beautiful it was, and its originality - we were allowed to totally put our stamp on the whole day, and Nico and Jasmine worked tirelessly to help us bring it to life. Thank you so much to the team at Pencarrow for truly the best day of our life.
From the instant, we found Pencarrow online we knew it would be the place for us. Everyone has their own style – but the fantastic thing about getting married here is that you have all the benefits of an established venue combined with the flexibility to tailor the day in a way that is bespoke to you. Being in London could have proved difficult to organise a wedding, but thanks to Nico and her team, it certainly wasn’t. They are simply amazing, constantly on hand to help throughout the run up and on the big day itself to ensure everything runs like clockwork. After a ceremony on the lawn facing the beautiful backdrop, we ducked inside just as it started to rain to listen to our first band while canapés, photos and cocktails commenced. Nico’s team then led the way across the walled garden to the beautiful Marquee, lit up across the lawn surrounded by fairy lights and bonfires. The very best bit of Pencarrow – outside of the amazing setting and fab team is the fact that the party never has to end. After an amazing evening, we picked our way through the glamorous campsite to the woodland nightcap bar where we danced away what was left of the night under the stars surrounded by our friends, before collapsing into our yurt. It sounds bohemian to say you camped the night of your wedding – in reality, it couldn’t not have been more lux! Everyone has commented on the beautiful setting and what a fun the wedding was, I know we are biased but we agree! I wish we could take all the credit but so much of it is down to the venue we chose and the team who helped us bring it to life.
From the start, the venue and staff were perfect. Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding day really special, everyone was totally wowed by the venue and the glamping field looked absolutely magical. Being able to have our guests all together for the weekend was truly phenomenal. One day is never enough time to talk to everyone so this was perfect. We had a strong preference to bring our own eclectic mix of alcohol (!) and we really appreciated the flexibility and effort you put into allow that to happen. From everyone's arrival at the welcome drinks outside the main house to moving guests over to the marque, and the setup of the late night bar, every element and detail was taken care of for us and it really made it a stress-free and truly incredible experience. A huge thank you to you Nico and Jasmine, and to your team Jimmy and Daisy, and anyone else who was putting in the hard work behind the scenes. We will always be very grateful to you and to Pencarrow for helping us have such a wonderful, perfect wedding day at such a unique and outstanding venue.
We booked our wedding at Pencarrow three years ago, back in a time before covid was a thing and the idea of our wedding being postponed was virtually unthinkable. Walking around that first time we visited, we were amazed by the beauty of the grounds and the house, and the idea that it would all be for us and our guests on the day. Nico was friendly and welcoming, and we loved how flexible she was to accommodate exactly what we envisaged for our wedding - something we had found lacking in other venues we visited. We loved the combination of the beautiful house with the festival like marquee and nightcap bar, offering both a formal setting for the ceremony and an informal one for the reception and party. Of course covid then hit, and Nico and her staff supported us through one, and then two postponements. Just a few months before our third date, we had a major rethink of our plans and decided to scale down our ceremony to a small 35 person event (we had got legally married in the interim). None of this was ever a problem for Nico and her team, who remained so friendly and understanding throughout (I'm sure they, like everyone in events, had had a tough couple of years, and it would have been easy for them to make the postponements and changes difficult for us). When the day finally came, everything went without a hitch and we enjoyed a beautiful ceremony by the arch, a reception in front of the house, a meal in the cafe courtyard and a little party in the cafe. It was great to have Nico and her team there to make sure things (and people) were in the right place at the right time. Everything was exactly how we imagined it to be and we had the so many nice comments from guests. We are so glad that we finally had our day, and that we chose Pencarrow all those years ago for our wedding. Thank you Nico and your team, it's been such a journey that we've been on together!
