Ready to say “I do” to St. Ives?
Click on the Contact Board to request your wedding date. We’ll confirm availability. A non-refundable payment of £225 reserves your date and time. The final non-refundable balance isn’t due until 30 days prior to the wedding.
Is the Ceremony Legally Binding?
No. UK outdoor wedding laws are a bit dated. COVID 19 is changing that and Parliament is looking to update outdoor marriage laws. Until then, you’ll need to visit a registrar either before or after a Cornwall beach wedding ceremony.
What if it rains?
We’ll do our best to work with you & the weather. Sometimes we can change the time or reschedule. If it looks like rain, we’ll work together for the best solution. Remember, you can’t have a rainbow without some rain!
Are postponements & cancellations allowed?
Yes, you may request a single postponement. Requests must be in writing 30 days prior to wedding date. Cancellations are allowed up until 30 days prior to wedding date. The £ 225 retainer payment is non-refundable.
Where are the Ceremonies held?
Any of the five major beaches in St. Ives. Harbour beach is the most centrally located and has its own unique charm. Porthmeor is a wonderful family beach within walking distance of the city center and several museums and restaurants. Porthgwidden is a sheltered beach. A bit smaller than the others, it has a peaceful tranquility. Porthminster is the most popular beach for St. Ives weddings. It’s a blue flag winner and is among the finest stretches of sand in England. Carbis Bay is the furthest from the town but it is closest to the train station. Located in front of a five-star resort, this beautiful beach won a blue flag award in 2019. Lambeth Walk & Bamaluz may be available but they are tide dependent.
How about Kynance Cove and the rest of Cornwall?
We live in St. Ives but we love all of Cornwall. Yes, we travel to Lizard Point, Godrevy, Hayle, Porthcurno, Marazion, Penzance, Perranporth, Porthcurno, and the Isles of Scilly. Any destination in Cornwall is available but there may be a travel fee.
Our recommendation is to have your ceremony as close to where you’re staying as possible. Escape to St. Ives has the best Holiday rentals in Cornwall. They can help you find the perfect Beach house for your romantic getaway.
Which St Ives Beach is Best for Weddings?
They all have their charm. The best plan is to try them all and decide for yourself. We don’t need the exact St Ives ceremony location at the time of your booking. We’re flexible so you can explore and choose your favorite.
