For history and natural beauty, Cornwall is unmatched. With its own place in Cornish history, Burncoose House in Gwennap, Cornwall, captures both at their best.

Transporting you to a time when Gwennap (and the wider region of Redruth) was one of the richest places in the world, Burncoose House and Gardens is a testament to Cornwall’s metal mining heritage.

Once at the forefront of Cornwall’s booming prosperity from the mining trade, today Burncoose House and Gardens is a top Cornwall garden destination and a beautiful luxury manor house wedding venue.

Monumental views across the site’s 30 acres can be had from just about every space at Burncoose. Needless to say, being a Burncoose House wedding photographer is magical.

The estate’s epic bluebell meadow alone (one of the best in Cornwall) is a wedding photographer’s dream. Then there are the: hydrangeas, magnolias, rhododendrons, daffodils, camellias, ponds, Japanese maples, towering monkey trees, award-winning nurseries and so much more.

Burncoose House – a Country House Wedding Venue

Etched with all the best Georgian features, Burncoose remains a picture of Georgian elegance, fitting for its notable position in Cornish history. Tucked into resplendent countryside, Burncoose manor house sits in a prime location between Falmouth, Portreath and Truro.

Located just off the A393, each top Cornwall destination is only 20 minutes away, putting you within easy reach of so many of Cornwall’s iconic attractions.

The serene rural setting of Gwennap is brimming with enchanting Cornish woodland scattered with glorious historic homes, well-preserved industrial relics, waterways, nature reserves and centuries-old mills.

Burncoose House is a sumptuous whirlwind of each. Just right for a home which still belongs to the landmark Williams family who once spearheaded the region’s fortunes.

Multi-Day and Intimate Burncoose Wedding

Catering to both intimate and large weddings, Burncoose can be yours for the day or multiple days if you want to turn the occasion into a multi-day wedding.

For overnight stays, there’s a collection of 7 ensuite king, super king and double rooms to house 14 guests, plus additional accommodation in Gilly Barn and Burnfoot Barn. Both barns make up the Trewegee Barns complex, where 11 extra guests can relax in the site’s gorgeous self-catering barn conversions complete with magnificent views.

For a dreamy start to your honeymoon, The Stable Courtyard Flat Two is a tranquil honeymoon suite, recently refurbished with original features, a wood-burning stove, its own kitchen and a private courtyard.

Part of the local Cornish Mining World Heritage Site, Burncoose House and Gardens makes for an epic backdrop to your wedding and a dream for stunning wedding photography.

It seems as if there are monumental views from every corner of the house and grounds. A delight which begins no sooner than the moment you get your first glimpse of Burncoose’s dove-grey exterior.

Head up the drive, edged with scarlet rhododendrons and pale magnolias, to a sensational view of Burncoose House fronted by an endless green lawn. On every side, views beyond telling of the stupendous abundance of flowers, trees, creeks and woodland which inhabit the Caerhays Estate.

Step into the grade II-listed house for gorgeous period features- a feast of chandeliers, marble fireplaces, high ceilings, period furniture, elaborate plasterwork and sumptuous wallpaper. Each room is yours to use as you wish as well as the outdoor terrace and grounds.

Over the moon with the beautiful photos Paul captured of our wedding day! They are better than we ever could have imagined! He was fantastic on the day, so friendly, polite and discrete capturing all of the special moments.

A real pleasure to have him at our wedding! Would recommend him in a heartbeat to anyone who is looking for a top notch photographer! Thank you so much Paul for all of our photos which we will treasure forever!
