We were enchanted by Pencarrow from the offset. It was the first wedding venue we viewed and nothing came remotely close. We were particularly excited about the Indian marquee, which took hardly any decorating because it is just so beautiful. The lead up was made super stress-free by Nico, who always answered our questions and helped with any requests.
It was a truly magical day. We did not even notice the rain! It was everything we wanted it to be and our guests had a brilliant time too. Our absolute favourite part was when Nico announced we could move our silent disco to the forest, where our night cap bar had been set up. We danced until 4am around the fire before heading into our bridal yurt, with log fire lit and waiting for us.
I wish we could do it over and over again!!

We got married here in April 2018 and we had the most extraordinary, special day. Pencarrow was the perfect setting - from the jaw-dropping driveway to the intimacy and warmth of the house and garden. All those who were involved in making the day happen, put so much effort and generosity into making it just what we had hoped: they made us feel at home. I can honestly not imagine having our wedding day anywhere else. Thank you to everyone x

I hired pencarrow house and gardens for my Venetian themed 40th birthday party this year. From the long drive down to the beautiful house and gardens, it just set the scene perfectly. The whole place including the marquee , to the camping was just incredible. All of the amazing touches that were added, just brought everything together, all of which exceeded my expectations. This was hugely down to Nico and her team. Nico allowed me to do all of what I imagined, and also with her knowledge and vision, made it even more special. Nico was so helpful and sorted so much out for me, that there was no stress, during the planning, and the actual party. Everything was taken care of by her and the team. It was a birthday I will never forget. All because of the kindness and warmth and professionalism of all involved at Pencarrow house and gardens.

A wonderful place to get married! From the sweeping driveway, through to the beautifully maintained gardens and dramatic backdrop of Pencarrow House, this place was everything we wanted for our wedding day (and more). We always wanted to get married outside beneath the Arbor with its stunning backdrop of Wisteria. Even though we were at the mercy of the weather, the staff were always supportive in ensuring that we had a contingency plan should the elements work against us – having exclusive use of the stunning house really took the pressure off. Nico and her staff were so flexible and allowed us to tailor the day the way we wanted it, whilst being sure to come up with really helpful ideas and doing all of the leg work to get us to the big day. It was so much easier than we thought it would be and that is testament to Nico and her team. The big day soon arrived and sure enough so did the threat of rain! No problem for Nico, she was on hand at all times to make sure that we were ready for anything. Despite the threat of rain, Nico worked tirelessly to ensure our ceremony was delivered as we had imagined, outside beneath the Arbour. The use of the house and Pencarrow’s staff to serve drinks and co-ordinate our catering team worked perfectly. It most certainly was the best day of our lives!Jo & Hazel Arnold-Mayes

It was only ever going to be Pencarrow for us! Gorgeous venue, and I’m sure they even sorted the weather for us!! Well organized from initial enquiry to post wedding day. Nico and her team did the most amazing job, nothing too much trouble. Our guests have all said it was the best wedding they have ever been to, beautiful and relaxed. A lot of our guests stayed on site and were blown away by the glamping facilities! Thank you so much for everything you did!Claire & Tom Hickey

We fell in love with Pencarrow the first time we visited, and knew this was where we wanted to get married. After contacting the venue we were introduced to Nico and her team. We were lucky enough to be one of the first couples to get married in the new marquee, and saw how Nico transformed the field into a magical wonderland. Nico was very hands on and was able to answer all of our questions, and gave us lots of advice. The venue is stunning and little decoration is needed. We opted to camp and we’re so pleased we did. The yurt was beautiful and had lots of little personal touches. A few of our guests camped with us, which made the experience even more enjoyable, many regretted not camping! Our wedding day was perfect, even in the rain, and that was all thanks to Nico and her team at Pencarrow.

Nico and the team at Pencarrow were fab! They were so flexible and accommodating with everything in the build up: liaising with our various suppliers, allowing us to decorate the marquee and worked so hard on the day to coordinate everything. We had torrential rain and barely noticed. "Plan B" was executed seamlessly with no fuss; no mean feat with 170 rowdy guests! Pencarrow is a stunning venue, the marquee is magical, and even IF the weather is biblical you will have the most wonderful day!”

Our wedding at Pencarrow was quite honestly perfect. From the moment we met Nico, as she toured us around the stunning grounds and helped us visualise the possibilities for the Big Day, we knew we had found our location. We had another six venue appointments that weekend and went home and cancelled them all. We’d already seen most of what Cornwall has to offer due to having postponed the wedding for a year simply because we hadn’t found what we were looking for; somewhere beautiful and surrounded in nature, but flexible in approach and with the ability to make it feel very personal to us. Pencarrow met, and far exceeded all of these wants. Nico’s brilliant and creative mind, along with her background in art direction for the film industry allows her to visualise your perfect day and make suggestions you might not have considered yourself. You’ll find little surprises and finishing touches along every path you explore. We can certainly say that without Nico and her amazing team the weekend we’d dreamed of wouldn’t have been possible. People say that all the time, but truly, without them we wouldn’t have had the outdoor ceremony in front of wisteria covered in butterflies, the posh welcome drinks and canapés on the lawn, the brilliant party with a late licence in a gorgeous marquee (I’ve never described a marquee as gorgeous before, but this one actually is), the giant glamping village, the secret afterparty around the campfire in the woods, fresh breakfast hampers, slices of wood for the cake table; the list could go on... From the big and somewhat unconventional requests to the small things, nothing was too much trouble. A few months on now, we still have friends and family telling us it was the best wedding they’ve ever been to. Obviously, we agree! One last thing, book the bridal yurt. It’s more than worth it.

We just wanted to say a great big “Thank You” to you and the team at Pencarrow, for making our wedding absolutely perfect! Pencarrow was so beautiful, we couldn’t have wished for a more lovely setting. All the flowers were in full bloom. It was absolutely magical, from the moment I stepped into the horse and carriage at the top of the drive! The tea rooms fitted our 50 guests perfectly and had the perfect relaxed country feel we were looking for. The children loved the play area and the peacocks and chickens all added to the scenery and entertainment. All our guests have said what a wonderful day they had. Everything ran so smoothly, which I know is mainly down to the hard work put in behind the scenes while we were all enjoying ourselves. Giving us a lift to our hotel at midnight, after our vintage car let us down, was truly above and beyond. No-one wants to be stranded at midnight in a wedding dress! Thank you again, it was all we dreamed of and more.
