Perfection from start to finish

Everything about Avalen as a venue was literally perfect from start to finish. This is such a special family owned and run business is a real jewel in the crown of wedding venues in Cornwall.

When we initially booked a viewing, contacting the team was so simple and we would get email replies within hours and not weeks like some! Nothing was too much trouble with days and timings and who we could bring and how many times we could view. We felt no pressure to commit to anything and all of our questions were answered from day one.

The price was so reasonable, again, compared to other venues of this scale in Cornwall it was an incredible price.

The venue itself is so beautiful, if it's a natural, rustic barn style wedding you are after but with onsite accommodation and all the mod cons then this is the one for you! The bridal suite (house!) Is absolutely stunning with loads of space for all your crew and the most stunning roman bathtub. It's also mere feet away from the ceremony room so no travel required!

in the lead up and on the day, nothing was too much trouble and everything was completely seamless. We were having some issues with my entrance music because it was a song on YouTube rather than Spotify but the team sorted it and sorted the timing as if it was nothing and it went perfectly.

They worked seamlessly with our hired suppliers, they have a huge professional catering kitchen on site and the grounds of the venue are huge with loading entrances and doors for equipment and decor load and unload. So much parking as well as additional accommodation you can book offsite for your guests and they run a shuttle bus for us to and from the venue so everyone could relax and enjoy.

They honestly gave us the wedding of our dreams and I cant thank the team at Avalen enough or give them a good enough review! Thank you so so much!

The perfect wedding venue, period.

Avalen is the most perfect place we could have ever imagined hosting our wedding. The venue is stunning, the staff are incredible, and the amount of freedom you get to build your special day how you want it to be is unrivalled. Whether you use the barns as blank canvases for your own decorations, or you simply use them as they come, the setting is a beautiful and unique backdrop for couples and their guests to enjoy. The team are really supportive and knowledgeable throughout the whole process, always finding a way to make your plans a reality, and with exclusive use of the venue you can make it truly feel like your own space. We received so many compliments on the venue and the staff, with so many of our guests describing it as the best they’d ever seen. If you’re thinking about booking Avalen for your wedding, don’t hesitate – it was perfect! Thank you, team.

Amazing wedding venue

We held our wedding ceremony and reception at Avalen in October 2023.

Avalen was the first venue we looked at and the last! We knew straight away it was the right place for us to be married in, from the amazing location,
Fantastic renovations and general attention to the smallest details.

Having our day at Avalen really allowed us to put our own stamp on everything and make it a real reflection of our personalities. You really feel the place is yours to create from a carefully present blank canvas!

Meg and team are fantastic, happy to help you as much or as little as you need.

Our guests definitely felt the wow factor when they arrived and the effect was everything we had wanted and more.

You will not regret booking Avalen for your special day.

Thank you once again to everyone at Avalen and we look forward to going back to plant our tree!

Incredible venue for the best day of our lives!

We cannot thank you Avalen enough for their invaluable hard work and effort on our big day.
The day ran smoothly and without a hitch.
Team Avalen are truly outstanding.

The venue is absolutely stunning and we knew from the moment we were engaged we wanted to get married at Avalen, we never looked anywhere else!

The carthouse where the bride and bridesmaids stayed the night before and got ready in the next morning was beautiful

We are forever grateful for their support, hospitality and the organisation of our perfect day. I know that both of our families have spread the word across the whole of the UK about how amazing Avalen is already.

Thank you making our special day so perfect.
