St Austell Weddings

This major town in Cornwall is situated on the south coast, approximately 10 miles south of Bodmin.

The south coast of St Austell Bay has a vast diversity of activities within its vicinity; fishing, the biomes of the Eden Project, the Pentewan Valley to Pentewan Sands cycle trail and many beaches.

The white peaks of the China Clay industry overlook the market town of St Austell, Cornwall’s largest town.

There’s also the Wheal Martyn Museum and Country Park, an excellent open air museum dedicated to the area’s industry.

Apart from displays of bygone work practices, you can see the large, modern working pits that use high-pressure hoses to blast the clay from the ground.

Nearby is the beautiful Georgian village of Charlestown, where you can find the Charlestown Shipwreck Centre.

Packed with historical artifacts relating to HMS Victory, Titanic, smugglers and pirates, making it the largest private collection of its type on public display in Europe.

The St Austell Brewery Visitor Centre is an interactive museum telling the story of the pubs, beers, wines and spirits of Cornwall and the families who created them.

St Austell also has its own winery, located in the nearby village of Trethurgy.

Knightor Winery makes premium quality, limited production wines from grapes grown in English vineyards and their own vines at Portscatho and Seaton.

When it’s not busy producing fine wines, the winery is also licensed for civil ceremonies, popular with many couples due to its pretty location.

If you would prefer to tie the knot at a luxurious four star hotel with a cliff top setting, then perhaps the Carlyon Bay Hotel would be a better choice.

Overlooking St Austell Bay this stunning, well established hotel is also a popular wedding venue in St Austell.
