A barn wedding at the beautiful St Ives seaside

Where do we start?!
We have heard the words 'The best wedding ever' from so many of the 180 guests who attended our special day at Lower Bussow Farm. The venue, food, setting, service and atmosphere truly blew people away and people are still on a high after such a momentous occasion.
Having grown up in St Ives, the town is close to my heart and my wife said she would love to have our big day there. Up until now, St Ives offered standard hotel weddings which neither of us wanted. Step up Lower Bussow Farm! Away from tourists and the suffocation of a hotel balcony, we were blessed with rolling countryside, fields of Al Pacas and views of the Atlantic Ocean. The tranquility of the countryside makes it surreal with the venue only a 5 minute drive from the hustle and bustle of the popular St Ives.
For the Ceremony, the wildflowers were in bloom, the sun was shining, people were smiling while live music filled the surrounding fields. It was picture perfect in every single way!

The Bradleys who own the farm have a wealth of experience in hospitality. This includes a 7-star super yacht service background to a Michelin restaurant chef. This in house family skillset ensures the highest level of wedding standards and we were elated with their professionalism, communication and attention to detail.

We opted for banquet style food, laid out on the long tables and the menu prepared by the Lower Bussow team was honestly better than anything you will find in a restaurant. It was sensational from starter to desert.

I could go on for hours but I will end how I started, by saying 'The best wedding many have ever been too'.
