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.

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.

Hospitality Manager 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!

We had such a wonderful ceremony there and loved every second. The staff were very professional leading up to the day and on the day itself. Thank you for helping to make our wedding day the day of our lives. Such a brilliant team and venue.

We both fell in love with Pendennis Castle the minute we saw it! Everything was perfect and just the way we dreamed, it really was magical! The Castle was truly magical, our day was even more perfect than expected. Thanks to Trenton and Loraine for all your help and support in creating our paradise!

I don't think words could appropriately describe just how much you appreciated everything you did for us in the lead up to and on the wedding day itself. Neither of us truly comprehended how much there would be for you all to do on the day itself but no matter how busy you were, you always seemed cheerful and in complete control!! The day was seamless and if there were any problems we certainly weren't aware! We really can't thank you enough for our wonderful day.

A big THANK YOU for all the help you've given us over the last 2 years while we have been planning our wedding. We had an amazing day on Saturday and seeing everything come together was awesome. You were a star and all the other staff at Pendennis who worked so hard to make our day so special.

Our wedding day could not have gone better and our guests were stunned by the amazing views. We wanted to express our huge thanks to you and your team for organising our wedding. There is not a single thing that we would have changed and it all went absolutely flawlessly. We both felt relaxed and thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience without having to worry about a thing. All our guests had an amazing time. Thank you so much for helping us have what we regard as the perfect wedding.
