Cornish Tipi Weddings Full Description
If you’re dreaming of a green wedding, wedding by water or the best outdoor venue you can find, then you’ve come to the right place. Say your vows in a woodland glade surrounded by trees & birdsong or by the shimmering waters of our magical lake. You might be drawn to a vision of a fairy glade; where you exchange your vows surrounded by nature before musicians on fiddle and flute play you past banks of foxglove and wild rose. Children clutching posies skip alongside as you walk hand in hand to a tented space filled with food and flowers. Later candles in paper lanterns and tiny lights shine softly across the music and dancing - long after little ones are tucked up in their tipis. You could be stirred by the rise of the eco-wedding; thinking green and sustainably from the beginning, you want to arrange ceremony and reception close to one another to reduce miles travelled, low impact accommodation for everyone to stay in, local suppliers of seasonal food and drink, in fact everything as low carbon and earth friendly as it can be.

Our wedding was absolutely perfect!
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.

THIS PLACE IS AMAZING! We got married here in September and had the most wonderful experiance! The staff were so lovly and helpful and made the hole process so easy and I diddnt need to worrie about a thing! We had several site visits before the wedding where we were greeted by a wedding planner who helped us gather some thoughts and ideas for our day! They made the venue look so beautiful, we added some of our own decorations as well but it's really not a necessity as the venue is so pretty! My family were well entertained with the lake, with all the kids and most of the adults taking a dip throughout the day and just had a blast! We will definatly be going back! My brother has already planned a trip with his friends there next summer! Thank you so much to everyone for a lovly experiance and can't wait to vist again

Wow! What can I say apart from thank you!!! Thank you for your support all the way through with my million questions, thank you for showing us around beforehand and THANK YOU for the amazing support and organisation on the day. A special shout out to Kim who was just brilliant- everyone was so friendly and helpful in making our wedding day a truly wonderful day to remember. Such a beautiful, unique site which was adored by everyone present. I wish we could do it all over again!

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 !!

Everything ran smoothly and nothing was too much
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

Better than we could have hoped!
We had the most amazing wedding we could have ever hoped for. 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, the wonderful on site food, and the importance of sustainability. We had every weather on the day but even pouring rain didn't cause any concern and we really appreciated the staff rushing to hand out umbrellas in the ceremony before luckily the sun reappeared. All our guests had an incredible time and so did we. We can't wait to come back for a visit.

Travel Notes

Take the M5 to Exeter then the A30 to Okehampton and Launceston. Turn right on to the A395 to Camelford. Just before Camelford turn right at Collan's Cross onto the B3314 to Dealbole. Follow the road out of Delabole for a couple of miles then turn left for St. Teath at the Port Gaverne crossroads (do not take the first road on the left signposted St. Teath just after Delabole). Stay on that road (again do not turn to St. Teath), curving to the right, over an old railway bridge, then take the first right just before Nomansland Cottage, and down the grassy track.

Frequently Asked Questions

Describe Cornish Tipi Weddings in 5 adjectives

unique, magical, natural, romantic, tranquil

Where’s the best photo spot at Cornish Tipi Weddings?

Our lake is the jewel at the heart of the venue and the backdrop to some stunning photos. Whether you have romantic photos sat on the jetty, rowing around in our bridal boat or stood in the middle of the lake on the pontoon, for a really dramatic shot!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

Our Favourte midnight treat would have to be the Camp fire! You can head back to your beautifull private tipi adorned with fairy lights and toast marshmellows or bubbles under a stary sky...

What is Cornish Tipi Weddings most unique feature?

There are lots of features that make our venue truely unique, our secret valley is 5 minutes from the wild Atlantic coast with a matchless backdrop of woodland and sky, shimmering lake water and magical Cornish earth.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

Once upon a time we started a tipi campsite - the first one in the UK - and then about 10 years later we were asked by a couple if they could get married here! A tipi wedding, woodland wedding, camping wedding, festival wedding - it could hardly be more perfect! The idea of you using our beautiful woods and glorious lake for your day of days was clearly spot on, and now nearly 10 years later, we're established as one of the UK's top outdoor wedding venues. Hurrah! So what we didn't do was jump on a bandwagon; we were in at the off with outdoor weddings, and we're actually from here (farmers - too long to mention) & have grown our family business organically over the last 20 years (yes, sometimes slower than we'd have liked) into something to be proud of. This means when you get married here you are dealing with real people in a real place, and we'll respond to you personally in everything we do. Having been the closest thing you can get to an outside wedding for all this time, we are thrilled to say you can now legally get married outside by the shimmering waters of the lake or in our woodland glade surrounded by ferns, bluebells and trees to the sound of the trickling stream and bird song.
