Kris and I would just like to say a massive thank you to the hotel staff and wedding coordinators for making our wedding an absolute dream on Sunday! It was perfect from start to finish. Thank you to all the staff, that made it happen. Bliss was absolutely fantastic on the day, she did everything to such a high standard and made the day run really smoothly. Sydney was amazing in the run up to the wedding - she was very responsive to my emails and made everything we wanted come true. David was also amazing, he made sure everything ran smoothly and at our pace. He was very kind and patient all day and stayed right until the very end! We’d like to say a massive thank you to the chefs - the food was out of this world. All of our guests said that they have never seen such an impressive buffet. They catered very well for Kris and I as we are vegan. We didn’t feel like we missed out at all! The bar staff/reception/waiters and the porters were all amazing too! We honestly can’t thank you all enough.

We got married in this beautiful hotel a couple of days ago and I couldn’t wait to write a glowing review. I stayed in the hotel with the bridesmaids the night before the wedding and we used the spa facilities which were pure class. The family room was great and the bridal suite amazing! The views are priceless. Nothing was ever too much to ask of our wedding coordinators Dominique and Lilly from booking the venue right through. They decorated the venue beautifully with our props and made us feel at ease throughout. We looked at a number of wedding venues but this one was by far the best. Guests commented on how the food was the best they’d ever had at a wedding. The waiting on and bar staff worked extremely hard. Loved every minute of our day, thank you to all.

Wonderful wedding venue
I would like to say a huge thank you to all the staff at St Ives Harbour Hotel that helped make our wedding day magical. The hotel was the first wedding venue we viewed and we knew straight away that it was where we wanted to get married. The wedding co-ordinators are amazing, particularly Sydney who helped me through my wedding planning making it as stress-free as possible. She really was a great support throughout the whole thing. Dominique was also so friendly and helpful. They put you at ease that everything is in hand and the day went amazingly well thanks to them.
The venue is simply stunning and my friends and family all said what a beautiful place it was. We stayed all weekend enjoying drinks on the terrace on the eve of the wedding which made us feel relaxed. The view is magical and brings such a sense of calm. I wanted a relaxed wedding and this venue couldn't have been more perfect. We even took a stroll to the beach for photos on the our wedding day.
The team from start to finish were incredible. Thank you so much for memories that will last a lifetime.
We will definitely be back to stay again and again and again.

Our Wedding Day
Thank you so much to St Ives Harbour Hotel and Spa for the perfect wedding day! We’re really glad that we chose the hotel as our wedding venue. From the initial enquiry, right through to the wedding day – all of the staff couldn’t have been better! Dominique and Sydney were brilliant in helping us to organise our day, we had complete confidence that everything would be exactly how we wanted it to be - we couldn’t have asked for more! The staff working on our wedding day were wonderful and made our day extra special. The venue itself was amazing, we had a small ceremony so got married in the Godrevy Suite, followed by drinks and canapés on the Terrace over-looking Porthminster beach. Our family really enjoyed relaxing here and we’ve some amazing pictures of our day with the beautiful back drop of St Ives! Thank you so much St Ives Harbour Hotel and Spa.

Wedding at The St Ives Harbour Hotel & Spa
We got married here on 18th June 2018 and also spent 2 nights at the hotel.
Firstly the stay;
The room we stayed in was lovely, we had a large room with a lounge area and a bedroom, the bed was huge and very comfortable and the view from the balcony was stunning, breakfast was nice (a little on the small side) and again the view from the breakfast room was beautiful.
Our wedding could not have gone any better, from the minute I emailed the first enquiry over to Dominique right until midnight on our wedding day things ran perfectly.
I dealt mainly with Dominique who I can not praise enough, very friendly, professional and helpful with a lovely calm manor which is good when you are stressed about your wedding, nothing was too much trouble.
Due to the fact we live over 250 miles away from the hotel a lot of our communication was done via email and these were always answered promptly and thoroughly.
The day itself ran perfect, thanks to Dominique, Sydney and Will (I'm sure along with an army of other people who we didn't meet) we didn't have to do anything or worry about anything we were free to enjoy our day whilst all the hard work was going on behind the scenes.
The food and beverage manager Will was also very friendly and professional and made sure the meal and evening part of the day was perfect.
The food was delicious, well present and served hot were appropriate ( I have a thing about cold food) and the drinks that were part of our package were also very nice and served promptly at the appropriate times.
The hotel is beautiful and the view even better but it wouldn't be anything with out the people who work there and the management should be proud of their staff.
The room we got married in and also the room below where we had our meal and evening function were both lovely rooms, both had a stunning sea view and we also had access to an outside terrace which was lovely as we were lucky enough to have the sun shining.
If you are thinking of getting married in Cornwall I would defiantly put this hotel on your list.

Amazing wedding at an incredible venue
The staff bent over backwards to make sure everything went smoothly and were flexible in accommodating what we wanted, making for a truly personal and bespoke experience. The food was delicious, and all my guests commented on how fresh and tasty it was, and what variety there was.
The hotel boasts stunning views of Porthminster Beach and we were lucky enough to have rooms that looked out across it, these stunning views can also be enjoyed from the dining area, bar and terraces.
We took our vows with the wonderful views behind us, then headed out for canapés and bubbly on the terrace, again taking in the breathtaking scenery.
The event planners Sydney, Rebecca and Jasmin were there to coordinate the wedding in the months running up, they were extremely experienced and able to offer advice, which was invaluable especially as we were based 300 miles away and doing all our wedding planning from a distance. Then on the day they were around to make sure everything ran like clockwork, along with the other fantastic staff.
They all took the stress and worry out of the planning and we were able to relax and enjoy our day and take everything in instead of being anxious.
Then there's the fabulous spa, with a beautiful pool and relaxing terrace overlooking the ocean, a jacuzzi, steam room, sauna a gym. The massage I had was out of this world and topped off a wonderful wedding and break. I can't recommend this hotel enough especially for a wedding, otherwise for a Spa or other break, we can't wait to get back again as soon as possible. Book yourself in otherwise it's your loss ;D
