FOR THE VENUE: Boconnoc House

This beautiful Georgian Grade II listed house can be found on the tranquil Boconnoc Estate – set at the end of a long private driveway, surrounded by trees and parkland. The interiors are a seamless blend of contemporary touches and historic features, resulting in a charming and luxurious aesthetic. For civil ceremonies, get married in the gorgeous settings of The Stable Yard, Bath House or Dorothy Garden, or for a church wedding, opt to say your vows in the estate’s striking 800-year-old church. Drinks on the lawns with spectacular views of the deer park and lake will make for ideal photo opportunities, while guests can stay in the stunning main house or in one of the beautiful cottages.
