Last update: June 2024

Hidden in the heart of the Cornish countryside near the scenic fishing village of Port Isaac, Cornish Tipi Weddings is a bohemian wedding venue in the far south west of the UK. In this woodland wonderland, couples can exchange vows and have a magical celebration to remember. They're free to create a day built around their wishes and make their dream wedding or elopement a reality.

Facilities and Capacity
Cornish Tipi Weddings is a licensed wedding venue so couples can spend their entire day in its picturesque surroundings. Say your vows in the wedding pavilion in front of up to 300 guests while foxgloves, wild roses, and a stream create a charming backdrop. Roll up the walls of the pavilion to let in the sunlight and sounds of the tranquil countryside. You can also hold a legal service by the beautiful private lake, the perfect backdrop for a magical and enchanting wedding.

If you have already tied the knot and are wishing to renew your vows or looking for something more informal, then our beautiful venue with 20 acres of woodland could not be more perfect. After your service why not wander through the woodlands or down to the lake for whimsical wedding photos. You can hang lanterns, bunting, photographs or flowers and there’s even a sweet rowing boat. The venue's biggest tipi, the Grand Lodge, sits across from the ceremony pavilion. This area is perfect for a celebratory toast and cocktail reception. Wedding breakfasts can be held in the marquee meadow, which will seat up to 300 dining guests. The lawns around this marquee are perfect for letting younger guests run and play. The newlyweds can end the night beneath the stars as they make memories to last a lifetime. Couples and their guests can stay on-site overnight in the provided tipis, adding a festival vibe to any event.

Services Offered

The team at Cornish Tipi will work alongside you as you plan your big day. The in-house wedding coordinators will be on hand to provide support and top tips from the moment you book until the day itself, when you will be looked after by the venue manager throughout the day. Everyone is catered for, from the youngest guest to the older family members, whatever you may need.

Dream wedding venue and most special setting

Cornish Tipis was the only venue we visited and loved it from the get go. Now 5 days after our wedding i can confirm it was everything we dreamed of and more! I LOVED it. It has such a warm feeling and so many of our guests were blown away by our ceremony on the pontoon looking over the lake and the most asked question being 'how did you find this place?!'. It felt like a dream come true :) It was the perfect mix and combination of a DIY wedding that you could make and personalise yourself but also had the amazing support and help from the staff to make it exactly as we pictured and put my mind at ease. We had Gastropod on site do our food which was brilliant and having the top village field for 33 of our friends to stay was the perfect way to make a whole weekend of it. I honestly had the best day of my life and can't get over how beautiful the lake and venue is. It's being able to add the personal touches yourself and dress the marquee and field how you wish which makes the day feel tailor made for you. I can't wait to visit every year and to one day bring our children :) x Kate & Ben

Better than we could have hoped!

We had the most amazing experience with Cornish Tipis. In the year leading up to the wedding they were always friendly, responsive and helpful on email, and when we visited the venue. Our first look round with Kim confirmed to us it was the place for us, as we loved the relaxed but organised vibe, and how much choice you have with what you do. The best things about the venue are the staff, who are all friendly, chilled but also efficient, the beautiful site, the festival vibe- having everyone stay for the whole weekend meant we spent time with everyone and had fun with guests young and old, how much freedom you have with your day, including no corkage charge and being able to decorate however you like and choose different suppliers, the wonderful on site food, the importance of sustainability with eco toilets, great recycling and an off grid low impact feel. All our guests had an amazing time and so did we.

Mr and Mrs Taylor 11/08/2023

Me and my husband got married here on the 11/08/23 and we could not of wished for a better ceremony! Everything ran smoothly and nothing was too much. It was the nice chilled wedding we wanted. The venue itself is beautiful and picturesque. Our Pictures turned out even better than we imagined. We took full advantage of the lake! I would highly recommend this venue to anyone! xxx

Communicative, friendly and hardworking: the best wedding supplier!

We had such an amazing Wedding with Cornish Tipis: They bent over backwards to make our day as special and as hassle free as it could be, and we couldn't have been happier with the result. They were communicative over email, happy to help as much as they could on the day and, most importantly, friendly to us and our guests: thank you so much Cornish Tipis from Bridie and Dyfan :) x

The perfect outdoor venue

The venue is so naturally beautiful and the ceremony area is perfect for anyone that is looking for that emersive outdoor romantic setting. The staff couldn't be more friendly on the day, treating us with kindness and positivity and the staff that helped in the planning stages were very responsive and gave detailed information throughout. It felt like a festival camping on site with all of your best mates and family and everyone had the most fantastic time. There is excellent provision for the wet weather too with a good sized marquee.

Beautiful venue and incredible team

Me and my wife had the best wedding service and reception at Cornish Tipis. It is truly a unique experience, with many of our guests still reliving the day. Kim, Lizzy & the team were incredible to work with and stayed calm when me and my wife were panicking. We highly recommend Cornish Tipis for a truly amazing wedding day!

Above and beyond

I cannot recommend Cornish Tipi's enough. We booked an elopement wedding with relatively short notice and the team were incredibly helpful. On the day the staff were amazing, attentive and ensured everything ran seamlessly. It was perfect and the venue is absolutely stunning.

Exquisite location, Phenomenal team, Overwhelming day.

My partner and I were married recently on the grounds of Cornish Tipi Weddings. As the title to the review suggests, the location was absolutely stunning, the grounds are quite clearly maintained enough to stop it from being overrun, yet not so much that the area's natural beauty is inhibited. I know that we cannot control the weather, however for the date, you couldn't have asked for better. The sun kept us relaxed and the very slight breeze kept us all cool whilst we were out on the lake surrounded by further breathtaking views.
The team over at Cornish Tipi are second to none, from the first initial meet and greet we felt both welcome and supported (which was a massive relief, since neither of us had been married before so didn't know what to expect...) Not one question was too obvious to answer and not a single request denied. Whilst the admin and wedding staff were amazing, there was one gent on the team that stood out to us all (guests included), his name is John, the amount of times that he ran up and down the entire venue to ensure we had anything and everything we needed or wanted, can not be counted on one two hands alone. (Needless to say, we had to force some cake onto him and the team there that day for being absolute superstars!) Nothing at all was too much trouble for him.
The day as a whole was the best of our lives. If we went back in time, even with more options, I truly believe we'd still have chosen this one.
We recommend this venue to anyone that wants to add a little peace and nature to their wedding, the team are more than happy to get stuck in with any ridiculous request, will help with decorating and moving things around and appear to be genuinely happy to be there with you. The price of the venue fair for what they offer, they also have access to their own catering team, photographers and florists should you wish to look at their list of "super suppliers", which helps to take the stress out of the preparation.

Thank you for reading.
And thank you for allowing us to use your space.

The best day of our lives

Such a beautiful venue and the staff were lovely and very helpful. They advised me and gave me many options, our budget was tight but we had the most beautiful wonderful day and did not go without. When I first set eyes on this venue I honestly thought it would be out of my budget because it’s absolutely out of this world. We traveled down for 7 hours and spent the week in Cornwall with all our friends and family and was still in budget. Honestly cannot recommend them enough. Thanks to all at the Cornish tipi for giving us the best venue ever !!

Our wedding 22.04.23

We couldn't thank Cornish tipi enough for our amazing wedding day. The staff were flawless at helping us create the best day and execute it perfectly. Couldn't fault a thing about it apart from how fast the day went.

Magical venue

Cornish tipis was the most magical venue for our wedding. It looks incredible in photos, but photos still don’t do it any justice!!! We got married in the pavilion and then had our evening reception in the lower village field and it was all perfect. The setting is gorgeous, and we were extremely lucky to have beautiful weather too. The staff on the day were really hard working and so polite and helpful. We wouldn’t have changed a single thing about the venue or how our day went. If you want a beautiful outdoors, laid back wedding then this is definitely the venue for you :)

Amazing venue, super friendly and helpful staff

Our wedding absolutely perfect. Not was it the perfect location, with many scenic backdrops but the staff really couldnt do enough to help. Kim was absolutely amazing not only as a wedding coordinator but also a fantastic, super friendly photographer and our pictures were out of this world. John and the lads were also super helpful, friendly and nothing was too much of an ask. We even had a delay on our end on the wedding day and all the staff at the venue were super understanding and helped smoothly change the order of the day around to suit us.

Perfect wedding

We spent years dreaming of a quiet, intimate wedding surrounded by nature and Cornish Tipi Weddings was perfect. Walking down the steps to the sound of birdsong felt like a fairytail. We married on the jetty on a sunny day and everything was stunningly beautiiful.
We celebrated after the ceremony in the pavilion, and as there were only 15 of us in total, ate our meal in their too.
We used the suppliers recommended by CTW, who were all wonderful, which meant we had our entire wedding (minus outfits) booked in less than a week. The team at CTW handled most of the arrangements for us, it was all unbelievably easy for us.
We couldnt have hoped for a more relaxed, joyous and beautiful wedding. We are extremely grateful to Kim and all the team at CTW for everything they did to help us celebrate our perfect wedding.

Simply the best!

We just wanted to write to tell you how amazing you all are! Thank you SO MUCH for hosting our wedding, you were absolutely brilliant. You made everything seem so effortless, and even calmed us down before the ceremony (not an easy job to take on!). You really went above and beyond for us, and we are so grateful.

Our guests were amazed with the venue, the guests that stayed loved the tipis, and I think they converted the non campers into campers! The lake was a hit with everyone too.

Our photos are beautiful and so perfect in the beautiful scenery of the venue - the lake, woodland, tipis and the rustic marquee.
