Magical Wedding of Dreams!

Emma and the team at the Eden Project made it so so easy to plan a wedding and everything was absolutely perfect and I didn't feel stressed or like I had to worry about anything because of how helpful the team were. The food served was incredible and people still talk to me about the ribs falling off the bone. The feeling of walking along that aisle surrounded by the Mediterranean dome is something I'll cherish forever. And the way the dome lights up at night was like being transported to another world. I could not recommend a wedding at the Eden Project more. The perfect place!

Relaxed and well organised

The team at Eden were great from the get go, let us discuss what vision we had and the kind of day that we wanted. They had lots of suggestions too and used their experience of the venue and past events to really help us get an idea of what works well, along with some great recommendations for vendors. Communication was excellent and we always had a response within a day with any queries that we had and all invoices where clear and simple to understand. We were able to go in the day before to drop off our decorations etc. Which were kept secure overnight. I even left a dress with them which I would be changing into for the evening - Emma made sure it was hung up and ready for me when needed. They set up the tables perfectly and my vision of how I wanted it to look was executed on point. Guest still mention to us how delicious the food was - we had a hog roast with salads and wedges, a nice casual dinner but extremely well executed and the best wedges I've ever had!! On the day the staff were brilliant and really thought of every detail. We had a ceremony elsewhere and arrived at Eden for our reception, on arrival me and the groom had a car waiting for us to take us down to the biome (so we didn't have to walk through the ground to get there) this also meant we had some extra alone time in the biome while we waited for the rest of the guests to wonder down the path. I could plug my phone in and had a playlist ready to go for the welcome drinks and during dinner time. After dinner we all headed over to the clearing where the DJ was set up and ready to go into the night - there was a bar set up right by the dance floor which was very convinient! At the end of the night there was a mini bus running to take guests back up to the car parks. Overall my experience was exceptional and I would 100% do it again and definitely recommend to any bride to be.

Absolutely magical wedding venue

We wanted our wedding to be an experience, and the Eden Project is definitely that! When I walked into the biome with my bridesmaids, we were taken away by the birds singing and piano playing (hired separately). It was such a stunning venue, the biome is lit up by fairy lights and path lights which reflect onto the ceiling creating a star-like effect. All the guests absolutely LOVED it, and can’t stop raving about it. Honestly, we knew it was going to be magical but it far exceeded our expectations!
The food was incredible! All the guests loved how fresh and high quality everything was. I absolutely loved the roasted vegetables, and Eton mess!
Emma looked after us so well on the day and everything went so seamlessly. I cannot fault the Eden Project at all for the amazing timeliness and calm atmosphere they created for our wedding. Everything was handled so promptly and quietly, all we had to do as the bride and groom was enjoy it!
The only thing I would say is that we were planning the wedding from a distance (over 4 hours away) so it was hard getting in touch with the events team to finalise things, however virtual meetings helped a lot!

It was such a magical day. I really appreciate everything the Eden Project did for us, and the next day passes for our guests were amazing too - our guests really appreciated the day to see everything for themselves, especially as we had all travelled some way to be there.
Amazing! Would definitely recommend!

Like Greece but in Cornwall

Eden was the first and only wedding venue we looked at and there was no need to look anywhere else. From the moment we walked into the Med dome we knew that was the perfect place to get married. It has all the looks of a destination wedding but we knew all of our family and friends would be able to attend.

From the first meeting the events staff were on top of everything we needed and made us feel relaxed that even though we didn't know what we were doing they definitely do! We visited a number of times ahead of the big day and every time the events staff made sure we were looked after.

On our wedding day Sam and Bernice were amazing, they were on top of things, ensuring we went where we needed to and when we needed to (believe me we needed this!). The other events staff were pleasant, unobtrusive and really just made everything flow. Bernice while trying to ensure everyone left at the end of the night, even managed to think about sending us away with snacks because we hadn't really had a chance to sit and eat.

I really appreciated all the support that the staff gave us, it made sure that our day was what we wanted it to be. All our friends and family were awed at the look of the place and are still talking about it a year later.

The perfect venue

The Eden Project was the perfect place to get married. As well as being unique and absolutely stunning, the team there are fantastic. Sam was so helpful in the run up to the wedding, and nothing was too much trouble - they were always flexible and accommodating.

I don't think we could have asked for a more perfect day; Sam and the team were on top of everything, making it all run completely smoothly. They were well organised, professional and friendly. The food was fantastic, and the venue was so special. Thank you so much to everyone there who helped make the day so memorable - we couldn't have asked for a more talented team of people or a more beautiful venue.

The most magical day

What can I say. We had a small and intimate wedding but I could have filled the venue when people heard where we were getting married!

My 85 year old grandad said in all his years he's never seen such a beautiful wedding.

The upside was because the venue was so incredible we really didn't have to spend a lot to dress the place. We kept it simple.

The staff were absolutely wonderful, Sam Higgs ensured the day went smoothly from getting me in the biome dry to cutting the cake. I could not thank him enough for allowing us the chance to not worry about a thing.

If you are considering this venue, don't just do it.

We are hoping to be back my 30th in a few years just so we can have another magical night in the biome!

Rebecca Green, Bride

My husband and I married at the Eden Project in 2016, it was everything I hoped for. Most family travelled down to cornwall from London and further so it became a holiday for people and the Eden had that WOW factor.
It was so beautiful inside I didn't need to do much I terms of decoration. The flowers were beautiful and the food delicious.
It gave a real relaxed but stunning wedding abroad vibe we wanted and we didn't need to worry about the weather! The Biome looked incredible at night with all the lights reflecting.
The venue were always helpful and friendly and the day went so smoothly I didn't have to worry at all and I'm an event producer by trade so a little picky!
Highly highly recommend especially if you want something a little different that will make guests go wow.

a wonderful wedding

The location is absolutely wonderful, especially when it goes dark. The food was very good but took a long time to serve. Be warned that it is a fair walk if you are in heels, although the return golf cart direct to the car was excellent. Also the dance area is a concrete base, which is hard on the feet so be warned about your shoes again! The venue was so romantic, truly unique. However, I felt that the organisation could have been better. There were no signs telling the bridal party where to go as we got off the bus from the car park and we waited a while to get the train to go the venue. At the end we could also have done with a sign telling us where to exit from, as it was not at all obvious and some of the guests had to wander around. Just little things but the organisation could so easily have been improved with a little more thought.
