Last update: June 2024

The Lost Gardens of Heligan is an intimate wedding venue in Pentewan, Cornwall. Heligan is one of the most mysterious and magical estates in England. Unknown, unseen, and seemingly lost amidst the brambles of time since the outbreak of the First World War, the recent chance discovery of a hidden door led to Europe's largest garden restoration project and the revitalization of a peaceful and picturesque earthly paradise. Today, Heligan enjoys pride of place among the finest gardens in Britain and provides the perfect setting for a fairytale wedding celebration.

Facilities and Capacity

The Lost Gardens of Heligan comprises 200 acres and offers a choice of fabulous outdoor and indoor event spaces, including seven locations licensed for civil ceremonies. The Heligan Kitchen Conservatory is the perfect place to enjoy a traditional three-course dinner and drinks; if you're looking for something a little less formal, the outdoor barbeque area is a great option. Wedding parties typically number between 20 and 50 guests, though slightly higher capacities are possible for evening receptions.

Services Offered

Heligan's dedicated wedding team will be on hand to assist you every step of the way. They can help you navigate your options and design a wedding experience that reflects your unique style and story. Heligan's catering menus feature fresh, seasonal ingredients. Most of the produce comes from the estate itself, meaning the distance from the source to your table is only about 157 yards. Their fabulous drinks menu includes local spirits and wines grown on the coastal slopes of Cornwall. The Lost Gardens of Heligan is the perfect magical setting for the next chapter of your love story, so contact their wedding team today to begin your journey towards your happily ever after.

Arguably the best wedding venue in Cornwall!

I鈥檝e visited the Lost Gardens of Heligan many time before and I never thought I would get married there one day!

After enquiring with many venues, I thought I would reach out with the Lost Gardens of Heligan and see if they could book us in!

We were quickly contacted by Louise who would also go on to arrange most of the day! The service provided by Louise and the team was fantastic and they made the day very special for us!

Ultimately for wedding venues, this is one of Cornwalls best kept secrets! The venue was fantastic and it鈥檚 a great place for the wedding photos!

The food was outstanding from the canap茅s all the way thought to the cake and the cake bites! The staff were very attentive and kindly boxed up all the leftovers for us to take away.

The venue was great value for money and the service was excellent! I would highly recommend this venue and you should consider it if you鈥檙e getting married!

Incredible surrounds and service, astonishing value

We are so pleased the lost gardens have been found! The focus of the organisational staff was superb, and their help was enormous. The flexibility of the arrangements was unlike any other on offer (forget the rigid and costly Eden Project now!). The beauty of the gardens and the friendliness of everyone within in them, from gardeners to kitchen staff, was extraordinary (calling out particularly the gardener who let us have photos in a closed greenhouse, and the chef who gave me a huge piping tube of his amazing garlic butter). We felt so special, and were astonished by the attention to detail. Finally, the value for money was extraordinary. I cannot recommend the Lost Gardens of Heligan highly enough. Choose this venue!

Couldn't wish for anything more

Louise and her team from start to finish we're nothing but exemplary. They had so much attention to detail and really showed they cared about making our day the best it could be.
The day itself was fantastic, everything ran smoothly and our guests have said it was the best wedding they've been too. They also expressed many times how amazing the food was.
We 100% recommend heligan as a venue to hold a wedding or any other event for that matter.
