Information For Carbis Bay Hotel

What’s better than getting married? Getting married on the beach! At Carbis Bay, barefooted brides can walk sandy-toed down the aisle, before exchanging seaside vows with their husband-to-be.

As wedding days are remembered forever, they should be perfect. Set against the backdrop of our privately-owned Blue Flag beach, as exotic and exhilarating as any British shoreline, Carbis Bay fits the bill.

Twelve separate areas of the estate are licensed for ceremonies, including the beach and Ocean Venue on the buttery sand, an outdoor spa garden pavilion, beautiful function suites inside the main house, and the cosy coastal Inn the Gannet. From classic to quirky, small and intimate to grand and glam, weddings are expertly tailored to every couple’s precise wishes.

In addition, cocktail parties and barbecues can be thrown overlooking the turquoise waters, perhaps before a beach side firework finale. Also right on the beach are the hotel’s new, coastal-chic Beach Lodges and Suites, some of them boasting hot tubs and sauna pods. Those make for a comfortable and indulgent first night of wedlock, while larger apartments suit bridal parties, groomsmen or travelling families.

Wow! What a location for a wedding! Beautiful. The beach is amazing. The staff were all so helpful. Maxine was so so helpful. Nothing was too much trouble she wouldn’t let us do anything. This lady is a credit to the hotel. Ria was also amazing. She even popped in on her day off to make sure everything was ok.

From the moment of your enquiry to the delivery of your perfect day, every wedding at Carbis Bay Estate is put together with meticulous detail to create a truly memorable experience. The Estate offers many areas which are licensed for weddings but I love The Wedding Hut directly on the sands of the beach. It’s rustic but chic and allows couples to have their own exclusive venue overlooking the bay with direct access out on to the sand. It’s lovely to plan and deliver weddings at the Estate – I got married here and had an incredible experience! I’ve been planning and delivering weddings at Carbis Bay for over five years and have made some amazing friends along the way. I am always available throughout the journey to help share any thoughts and ideas, achieve key milestones and take any of the stress out of the planning process for you.
