The Green is such a unique and delightful setting for a Cornish wedding whether you are looking for something rustic or elegant, or indeed a mix of both, so much is possible as the ethos here is one of flexibility. The Green is very much a venue that can fit around you rather than you having to adhere to a particular style and running order.
You can share your day with up to 140 guests, or opt for a much more intimate gathering, or even an elopement with just the two of you. The choice is yours, but the service and support you’ll receive will be equally attentive and accommodating.
You can tie the knot outdoors in one of two outdoor licensed ceremony locations either under the Oak Arbour arbour framed between two oaks and located on the hillside with views to the beautiful valley below or under the Lake Arbour by the river. For a wet weather option, or just because you love it, you can hold your ceremony indoors, in the romantic and hugely atmospheric Wedding Barn.
When it comes to your reception, you have a choice of barns from a Really Rustic Barn to the characterful Wedding Barn. With so many options available, we’ll hand you over to the wedding team at The Green now to guide you through more of what’s on offer at their delightful venue

What’s your best advice to couples when choosing their perfect wedding venue?
Our best advice to couples is to prepare a list of questions before you arrive at your venue for a visit. Everyone deserves to fall in love with their venue but you must also make sure that it ticks all the boxes in terms of practicalities and the needs of your guests.
Preparing a list of questions in advance helps to make sure that you use your head and your heart when making your venue choice.
