Weddings at Charlestown Harbour – St Austell, Cornwall
Charlestown Harbour in St Austell is one of Cornwall’s most iconic locations.
It is now licenced for engaged couples who are looking for a beautiful setting to get married.
Complete with stunning beaches on its doorstep, this working port offers both romance and character and is a perfect setting for your small wedding in Cornwall.
The small, privately owned Grade II listed Georgian harbour and UNESCO World Heritage Site is located on the rugged south Cornish coast.
Charlestown Harbour was constructed between 1791 and 1801 by Charles Rashleigh.
The location has appeared in several television dramas and films over the years.
More recently the BBCs popular programme Poldark, used Charlestown Harbour as one of the filming locations.
Steeped in maritime history and famous for it’s fleet of striking tall ships, couples can marry in the intimate climes of The Round House, situated on the harbour.
This atmospheric space can host intimate ceremonies with up to eight guests in attendance.
Larger receptions can take place in the heart of the inner harbour on board the tall ship, Kajsamoor (which is also available for dry hire as a venue only).
Kajsamoor was built in Norway in 1939 and since arriving in Charlestown in 2017.
This magnificent ship has also enjoyed various appearances on the silver screen and on television alongside the harbour.
Couples looking to get married at Charlestown Harbour are invited to enjoy a tailored package that has been created to suit their requirements.
From a drinks reception on the open deck space, to a three-course meal for up to 30 seated guests (or 50 standing) provided by popular local restaurant, The Longstore.
