Port Eliot Estate, St Germans, Saltash, PL12 5ND

A magnificent Grade I listed house & gardens owned and occupied by the Countess of St Germans, Port Eliot is one of the most beautiful places in Cornwall; providing a perfect backdrop for your wedding day.

The estate stands in stunning secluded grounds and parkland, along the idyllic banks of the River Lyhner. It is conveniently located a short walk from St Germans railway station, and a 25 minute drive, across the Tamar Bridge, to Plymouth.

A Port Eliot wedding can be a classical fairy-tale or a story of rock ’n’ roll decadence (or sometimes, a little bit of both). As a private house with extensive grounds, a covetable contacts book and an open mind, Port Eliot provides an unforgettable setting for all styles of celebration.

Weddings at Port Eliot are magical and unforgettable occasions. Due to the nature of the site, they tend to have a vibrant, festival feel – a ceremony in the stunning Georgian Orangery, with its romantic chandeliers entwined with flowers, followed by a truly magical wedding celebration in a giant tipi, taking in the beautiful view of the park.

Other locations licensed for civil ceremonies include; the impressive Drawing Room, with its magnificent views of the Repton Park, the imposing Dining Room with its roaring fire, and the Conservatory and Library provide intimate spaces for the smaller wedding party.

After your ceremony, you may like to wow your guests with a Champagne reception in the famous Round Room. Designed by Sir John Soane, it is considered one of his outstanding achievements with a mural painted by Robert Lenckiewicz regarded as his masterpiece. It has to be seen to be believed.

At Port Eliot they can also provide beautiful locations for your marquee reception. The Boat House Lawn is a hidden gem in the woodland garden, with views over the Lynher estuary. Or perhaps you would prefer the Park with the magnificent Port Eliot house and St German’s church as your romantic backdrop.

You really are utterly spoilt for choice…

"I know your wedding is supposed to be the best day of your life - but nothing can describe the wedding we had a Port Eliot. In fact months later we're still glowing. The setting was incredible - a perfect mix of jaw-dropping without being intimidating. All our guests felt relaxed and happy and so did we. The staff were incredibly helpful and unflappable, I felt in very safe hands. Truly magical!"

"Absolutely perfect! I really can't describe how wonderful our wedding was at Port Eliot. All of our needs were catered for; the views of the park and river and whole place are just beautiful, everyone was so friendly and helpful and the day went without a hitch! Photos were a big thing I wanted to be perfect and I cannot think of a more brilliant backdrop for all of ours! Wonderful memories..."
