RUSTIC WEDDINGS

Rustic, Relaxed, Intimate

Jim and Tash's Intimate Rustic Wedding at The Cow ShedAt the Cow Shed we specialise in intimate rustic weddings that are heartfelt, relaxed, and deeply personal.

Our Rustic Weddings are ideal for those planning a relaxed and intimate gathering with up to 80 treasured guests, or a smaller wedding with 20 to 30 of their closest family and friends. (If you’re planning a runaway wedding for two or two plus a few, our romantic Elopement Weddings may be the ideal fit for you.)

The Cow Shed is a delightfully different venue that offers unique rustic elegance in a stunningly picturesque and peaceful Cornish countryside, just minutes from the sea. Ideal for any couple dreaming of an intimate rustic wedding held in a relaxed and less formal style.

There are many reasons why our gorgeous wedding couples are drawn to our venue and heartfelt approach.

Many fall in the love with the warmth and character of the Cow Shed and Old Milking Parlour, our tranquil grounds, and the nature inspired elegance of our rustic themes.

Some find the idea of planning a traditional big wedding too stressful and overwhelming.

Others feel that all the fuss and fanfare of a traditional wedding just isn’t their style.

Many are looking for something distinctly different. Something unique that truly reflects their personalities and gives them the freedom to celebrate their unique union in entirely their own way.

Some want to avoid the pressure and diversion of juggling the wishes of an overly large guest list, not to mention the substantial expense. They want to ensure they can keep their focus on each other and the very reasons why they chose to get married in the first place.

Others feel rather taken aback by the entire wedding industry and are looking for a refreshingly different approach. Something intentional, personal and tranquil. A place where they can take a slow, deep breath and savour every moment of their relaxed, joy filled and intimate day.

Whatever your reasons for choosing an intimate rustic wedding, we would be honoured to help you create a deeply personal and exquisite day 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 relaxed, joyful and memorable days of your life.

Personal, TranquiL, Stress Free

Rachel and Steve's Rustic Wedding Ceremony at The Cow ShedWe take great pride in ensuring our weddings are as relaxed and intimate as possible for all our couples. 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.

From the moment you and any guests arrive at The Cow Shed at Freathy Farmhouse, you’re sure to notice life slow down and the pace skip a beat. 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.

We know that 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 and revisiting fond memories of your blissfully carefree day.

Our faithfully and elegantly restored Cow Shed Barn, Old Milking Parlour and 18th Century Farmhouse provide a stunning range of ceremony and reception options, creating the perfect backdrop for a truly rustic and romantic occasion.

Our venue is set in an acre of mature grounds with a small stream running through it. You’ll find wild flowers and swathes of frothy cow parsley dancing in the hedgerows, and The jewel coloured ocean only minutes away.
