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!

How can anyone not want to wed here! It is PERFECT in every way. Queen of my own castle for one day. Trenton was professional, he did a superb job. Gold star, faultless service by all involved. Can’t thank Trenton for his services or rate him enough as he was spot on all day. Excellent service, it ran like clockwork. Thank you Trenton. St Mawes Castle is a stunning venue for a wedding ceremony. Perfect in every way, it gave us our best day ever.

Excellent value for money - for the location and the package chosen. Overall décor on the day was superb. Loraine, Trenton and all the staff we had contact with were professional, friendly - fab! English Heritage offered a good and varied selection of not only packages, but food packages etc and were always happy to discuss ideas. Being able to have our wedding at such a beautiful, historic setting, at an affordable price was our dream come true! Loraine was amazing from start to finish - her support and fun-loving personality really shone through! Breath-taking views, fantastic bespoke service from start to finish - all made for the best wedding day you could ask for!
