FAQ's

We’re planning a tiny/medium/large/huge wedding, is that ok?
From 2 to more than 250 we’re happy for your wedding to be whatever size you would like.

 

Can we have exclusive use of all/part of the site?
Yes, no problem, see the nitty gritty for details of our exclusive use packages.

 

We want a civil ceremony, have you got a licence?
Yes we have...

 

We want a hand fasting / our own special ceremony / a family friend as celebrant, can they marry us / we do that by itself / as well as the legal bit?
No problem at all, we can do any of the above and more besides.

 

When can we get into the venue to start doing our decorating and finishing touches?
Usually from 4pm on the day before your ceremony, unless another wedding is booked on that day, when times will have to be discussed. Other times may be possible with prior arrangement...

 

Can we arrive at our ceremony by classic camper/vintage car/motorbike/horse & carriage?
Sounds great, we’d love you arrive by any of the ways listed above or any other wild ideas you may have...

 

We want to get married with you but have our reception somewhere else?

What about my Granny/Grandpa/older family members?
Older guests are often a really important part of the day, and we always help in any way we can for example with a driver, see our ceremony and reception page

 

What about disabled guests, my friend’s broken ankle, my Mum’s knee operation?
Disabled couples or guests, whatever their age or requirements are as important as everybody else – please see our ceremony and reception page

 

Will my heavily pregnant sister be ok sleeping in a tipi?
The answer to this one depends entirely on your sister… we think being heavily pregnant/with a newborn baby in a tipi is fine – but it’s not for everyone.

 

Are babies and small children welcome?
Absolutely, & they love it!

 

Can we bring our dog(s) or any other pet?
Sorry, not under any circumstances, unless a guide dog; or possibly playing a role in the ceremony such as ringbearer (yes, we’re serious) or a bride arriving on horseback (in which case dog or pony would arrive & leave again at specific times - not stay on site). See your ceremony page

 

What happens if it rains?
Dont worry if the weather doesn't play ball on your big day... although you may need umbrellas to get between the wedding pavilion and your marquee (and during your funky photo shoot), if you have more guests than will comfortably fit into the wedding pavilion we can keep your guests dry during the ceremony with extra tented space around the outside.

 

We want to make a weekend of it, not just the ceremony & a party in one day; how does that work?
Our venue is an ideal place to have a weekend wedding see the day before and after

 

We want to do everything in one day, can we just stay one night? 
Yes if that’s what you want to do.

 

How much is tipi accommodation / wild camping for our guests?
Please check our cornish tipi holidays website for latest accommodation prices, don’t forget your guests will be entitled to a wedding guest discount, they just need to let us know that they are coming to your wedding. Also you may prefer one of our exclusive use accommodation packages see the nitty gritty

 

Have you got nice hotels / B&B’s / holiday cottages nearby for can’t camp/won’t camp?
Yes there is lots of lovely other accommodation in our area... further details available from us.

 

If you haven’t got any electricity, how will we do hair & make up/use our hairdryers/straighteners/ iron our clothes etc on the day?
There are several butane-gas operated appliances on the market including hairdryers, curling tongs and straighteners, alternatively you could bring a small portable generator to plug everything in or we could hire one for you. Sometimes our wedding parties will visit a hairdresser to be spruced up, or we can arrange a mobile hairdressing service to come to you.
