Runaway and Elopement Weddings

For couples dreaming of an escapist wedding in the lap of luxury, look no further than the drop-dead gorgeous destination venue of Lower Barns.

Situated in stunning rural surrounds between the exotic realms of the Lost Gardens of Heligan and the sheltered south Cornish coast, Lower Barns offers an achingly beautiful bolthole in which to relish an intimate or elopement wedding of the most memorable kind.

Presenting a spectacular series of facilities and features, the award winning boutique guest house will treat you and your guests to super stylish interiors and surrounds.

Eight uniquely designed suites redefine the words snug and welcoming. There are three suites within in the main house and four scattered across the gardens, three of which have their own private gardens and one with wheelchair access and and upstairs room. One has a sauna, one a woodburner and another has it’s own gypsy caravan.

Well behaved dogs are welcome at weddings and can stay (in their own beds, not on furniture or beds) in The Hideaway and The Hayloft.

Extra sensuous indulgences can be experienced with therapies in your rooms, Jacuzzi hot tub and walled gardens. And then there is the food - ‘modern romantic country’ menus, sourced locally and cooked to perfection for a feast as indulgent on the tastebuds as the sublime location is on the eyes.

Stage a civil ceremony in any of the fabulous and fully-licensed spaces, from an outdoor wedding in The Wed Shed, to the intimacy of a winter wedding in The Shack in front of a roaring log fire or if you have more guests you may choose The Lounge with open fire. Design an incredibly dazzling and bespoke day to suit your every individual whim.

Countless couples have been wooed by the unique and characterful approach to design, service and making memories. Lower Barns offers a beautiful backdrop for intimate ‘runaway’ weddings and elopements.

Fall under the spell of this special place instantly. Blending a riot of colour and a heady air of romance, you’ll find stylish retreats scattered across a glorious garden; the lush lawn with colourful flowerbeds, lanterns and wooden flowers, and the trees blossom with candyfloss pink flowers in the spring.

Blending eye-catching design with luxe, cosy comforts, such as a dive-into-me bed, woodburner and retro fridge, these gorgeous spots beg you to relax, unwind and indulge. The Hideaway offers colour and romance in abundance; there’s a super king-size bed, a slipper bath and even a gypsy caravan in the private garden.

Step inside the private, exotic climes of the walled garden to a superb, sun baked spot. Enter a sanctuary styled with a riot of colour, an eclectic mix of textiles and furnishings, and a bucket load of personality.

A twinkling chandelier overlooks a divine slipper bath in the roomy and glamorous bathroom, while a sumptuous over sized bed is heaped with luxurious linen, looking out to your own secret garden. For a memorable evening, wander from the charm of your Hiding Place, across the garden to The Party Shed for a delicious feast, with gregarious table settings, a multitude of candles and log burner, then slip into the hub tub for a spot of star gazing, against the inky black night.

A range of therapies are available, as well as, exceptional massage from former Arsenal FC masseur John Kelly.

While away your honeymoon with country rambles, coastal walks, lazing on beaches cloaked in golden sands and mooching around the nearby fishing villages - that’s if you can bear to drag yourself away from the heavenly Hiding Place at Lower Barns.

Testimonials for Lower Barns Small Boutique Wedding Venue Testimonials for Lower Barns Small Boutique Wedding Venue
Johnny and Den Harris

"My wife and I married here on 29th Feb. From start to finish the whole experience was perfection. We were incredibly well looked after by Janie and Mike. The accommodation is truly first class while still feeling homely and familiar. We stayed in Nook and enjoyed the sauna after a long day, and the comfort of the room(s) of an evening. I truly couldn't think of a a better place to get married."
