Wedding Barns in Cornwall


The popularity of barn weddings in Cornwall has increased, with beautifully converted barns becoming the number one choice.

Barn venues give you the option to create your perfect wedding theme against a fairly neutral background.

Wedding barns also have the added benefit of invariably being set in the most beautiful rural scenery, giving a perfect backdrop.

If you are about to start looking for your wedding venue in Cornwall, here’s a list of 10 of the best barn wedding venues to choose from.

*Shown in alphabetical order

Knightor Winery

Set in a courtyard of historic granite buildings, this boutique winery sits in the small, rural village of Trethurgy and is within two miles of St Austell.


Knightor’s history dates back as far as 1305, when the settlement named “Creghtyer” was first recorded.

In 1699 Joel Gascoyne’s map of Cornwall records it as Nighter, and depicts an important house with what appears to be two ranges and a tower indicative of a grand building.

The site’s name was later changed to Knightor in 1842.

Records show that the grand house was demolished and rebuilt in the mid to late 19th century but the remains of windows, a date stone of 1623 and other masonry are incorporated into the complex.

The venue’s location and history make a perfect back drop for your country wedding with ample opportunity for wedding photographs.
