Weddings at Pendennis Castle

Say "I do" at the atmospheric Tudor fortress Pendennis Castle, situated on the south coast of Cornwall. Contained within an outer wall and surrounded by a secluded grassy Chemise, you can get married in the Castle Keep, lower gun room. Enjoy a glass of bubbly after your ceremony or pause for photographs.

Castle Keep - Lower Gun Room

Crossing a stone bridge, you enter the Castle Keep through an ancient arched doorway complete with its original Tudor Portcullis and topped by the Royal Coat of Arms. The Lower Gun Room is an enchanting place to exchange your vows, steeped in nearly five hundred years of history.

Traditional wooden benches are set on each side of the aisle, lined with gunpowder barrels positioned to create an enchanting entrance. Tapestry hangings, flowers and candlelight can complete the picture.

Ceremony: 120 people
