ELOPEMENT WEDDINGS

 

If you want a magical ceremony that celebrates your unique union without the stress of trying to please everybody else, an elopement may be the perfect way to have your (wedding) cake and eat it too!

Rustic, Relaxed, Intimate

At the Cow Shed we specialise in intimate rustic weddings that are heartfelt, relaxed, and deeply personal. Our delightfully different venue offers unique rustic elegance in the picturesque and tranquil Cornish countryside, just minutes from the sea. Ideal for any couple dreaming of an intimate elopement wedding held in a relaxed and less formal style.

Maybe you find the idea of planning a big wedding too stressful and overwhelming. Perhaps all the fuss and fanfare of a traditional wedding and reception isn’t your style. Maybe you want to avoid the pressure or diversion of juggling the wishes of a large guest list, not to mention the substantial expense. You might want greater freedom to choose when, where and how you get married. Or perhaps you’d prefer a deeply personal and private ceremony, shared just between two or with only a handful of your closest family and friends. If this sounds like you, a romantic elopement or surprise wedding may be the ideal way to say “I Do” while having everything you want, and none of what you don’t.

Whatever your reasons for choosing an elopement wedding, we can help you create an exquisite ceremony for two (or two plus a few) that has all the warmth, magic and charm you’ve ever dreamed of. We care deeply about helping you create the wedding of your dreams and ensuring it is one of the most joyous and memorable days of your life.

You’ll experience our warm, relaxed and loving style in every aspect of the preparation and hosting of your wedding, which ensures you can relish every minute of your special day.

We think you’ll be amazed at how quickly you’ll begin to unwind and in no time at all, feel completely calm and at home. All too often, organising a wedding can leave couples stressed and exhausted when they get home. But not at The Cow Shed! When you have your wedding here, you can expect to leave feeling totally refreshed and relaxed. Basking in the glow of the very reasons why you chose to get married in the first place as you revisit fond memories of your blissfully carefree day.
