The Best of both Worlds

Our couples can now get married close to the sea, with the sound of crashing Atlantic waves, but still within easy access to the venue facilities nearby. Our new outside celebration area puts you amongst the fields of the Cornish countryside and the mysteries of the past. ‍

Our four-thousand-year-old Cornish stone hedges abound revealing the toil of ancient peoples as hunter gathers became subsistence farmers. These field boundaries are the oldest structures anywhere still in use for their original purpose. Look carefully and you can see the bowed field shapes that enabled oxen to turn and to carry on ploughing. These hedges now provide homes for a rich diversity of wildlife including slow worms, lizards, and a profusion of native Cornish plants.

 

A Roman coin recently unearthed confirms that Roman seafarers traded with local tin streamers. The stream that runs below where you will take your vows once powered the crushing and separating processes that turned the ore to black gold. The ruins of the stamps, wheel pits and buddles still lie in the undergrowth, remnants of a bygone pre-steam age, waiting for renewed life. The bridle path down the valley that now leads nowhere once carried hordes of donkeys and mules with their loads of ore from nearby tin mines to the water powered engines. The sea below once ran red with the washings from the tinworks.

You will be on the coast that once saw the waiving of lamps on a dark night to lure passing sailing ships onto the rocks so that they might be relieved of their precious cargoes of rum and spice. The same bridle path enabled the barrels of treasure to be quietly hauled up from the beach below. You might imagine the smugglers hurrying to secrete their booty in the caves and tunnels in the hillside while the excisemen prowled the cliffs, determined to extract their pound of flesh.

You will be part of our nature recovery scheme that includes the wetland and ponds before you and the newly planted “edible forest” behind you. The pond is wild though our ducks might join in the celebration. There will be no manicured lawns but a flower meadow instead.

You might even see the water voles that we are hoping will return. And there is every chance you will catch a glimpse of one of the rarest birds in the UK – the iconic Chough that has been brought back from extinction by the restoration of the Lowland Heath along the cliffs that we have carried out along with our neighbouring farmers.

Our new outside ceremony area will provide an elegant flower studded pergola that will let your seated guests enjoy the occasion to the fullest. You can add fun to the day by adding our ice-cream bike while we serve canapes and welcome drinks. You might have some live music, why not?  Guests will be able to look out onto the Atlantic and hear the gushing of the stream as it wends its way to the sea.

This location has given us the opportunity to show off perhaps our greatest most romantic asset – the sun as it gently sets over a summer sea.

The access path is made of firmly embedded railway sleepers so wheelchairs, prams and pushchairs people will have an easy ride. Even the pergola will have ramps toit. Everyone will be catered for.

Previously our outside weddings required everyone to be very sure footed and fit which inevitably led to some disappointment and we think the new area will be very convenient and allow all the family and friends to enjoy your special day.

If you want apiece of real Cornwall in your heart, then we think Chypraze Farm with its traditional barns and wild surroundings is the place for you. The area abounds with quirky accommodation, cream teas, ice-cream, stunning walks, beautiful beaches, and breath-taking views. You will take your family on a journey that they will remember always.

Your marriage will become a milestone in the sumptuous history and heritage of Chypraze where fishermen, farmers millers and tinners have carved out a life from the land since the dawn of time.

We are very excited to complete this project!
