Event Spaces

Pendennis Castle offers a range of unique venue choices. The Lower Gun Room inside the ancient Castle Keep is an especially evocative setting for Civil Wedding Ceremonies. Similarly, the Royal Artillery Barracks Melvill Room flooded by natural light with panoramic views out to sea offers a delightful space for 'tying the knot' and can be used for exclusive dinners. Or why not try the Killigrew Room which lends itself beautifully to couples wishing to invite larger numbers to help celebrate their very special day.

The Castle definitely had the wow factor. All our guests were blown away by the beautiful location and we felt very look after throughout the day. We couldn’t have asked for a more magical setting

We couldn’t have been happier - everything was smoothly planned and executed right from the first meeting to the day after. The staff really went out of their way to make everything perfect.

Your Coordinator

I am very proud to say that I have been working with couples and their suppliers helping to ensure that they have the very best day possible since Pendennis Castle was first licensed for Civil Wedding Ceremonies in 1998. I have of course worked with many couples over the years and have a wealth of experience but never take for granted the pleasure of working at such an important and loved Cornish landmark that is Pendennis Castle.

I've been lucky enough to work at beautiful Pendennis Castle since 2000, and started working as part of the Hospitality team in 2003. It's been a privilege to help plan and coordinate weddings and events at Pendennis and St Mawes Castles for hundreds of couples and no two weddings have ever been the same!
