Today on our blog, we are happy to celebrate our Tredudwell couple Angharad and Oliver who have both lived in Cornwall for most of their lives which makes it all the more special that they chose to get married here at Tredudwell for their autumn wedding in Cornwall. It was actually our last wedding of 2023, which made it particularly memorable for us too!

Why did you choose to get married at Tredudwell Manor?

“Both of us have lived in Cornwall for most of our lives, myself (Angharad) being born and bred here, Ollie moving to Devon when he was only a small baby and then moving across the pond to Cornwall at only 10 years of age. Cornwall holds a lot of special memories for us, so getting married in Cornwall was an obvious choice, however a lot of the ‘Cornish Wedding Venues’ also come with a large price tag. We wanted to find somewhere that felt special to us but also fell within our budget. When we first visited Tredudwell about 2.5 years before we actually got married, I turned to my now husband as we drove up towards the manor house and said, ‘we’re going to fall in love with it here’ and we did. It was perfect, big open spaces, beautiful accommodation for our immediate family and such a spectacular location. We have been to weddings in the past where the dance area and seating area are kept really separate and it creates a divide in guests, we really didn’t want this and were so conscious of it when choosing where to book, I loved the fact that Tredudwell was one big open space so that everyone was together as one big family celebrating with us. ”

What kind of wedding ceremony did you choose and why?

“We chose to have an indoor ceremony due to the time of year, the gorgeous painting that has been done made it easy to look beautiful without hiring a lot of décor, and the large glass doors and windows made it feel like we were bringing the outside, into us. It also meant that as the winter sun made its appearance it shone through and created such a beautiful atmosphere. ”

How did you make all your wedding planning decisions for your autumn wedding in Cornwall? How did you find planning a wedding with the Tredudwell team?

“As wedding planning goes, we tried to keep it as stress free as possible. We’re both very laid-back people so we wanted our wedding day to reflect us as individuals. However, it does come with its stresses and constant questions. Having the Tredudwell team on hand to answer questions and listen to our worries really helped us streamline the process. Hayley was extremely attentive and helped answer all my queries, probably some that weren’t even her responsibility ha-ha! We also could arrange visits often and we were encouraged to do this by the team, it really helped us visualise how the day would run!”

What did you eat and drink at your wedding? Did you enjoy having the freedom to personalise your catering options?

“We had catering by Steve Tabolt at Cornwall Chef for our Wedding Breakfast. We opted for a sit down 3 course menus, very traditional and of course, yummy! We had the option to do a more relaxed self-serve sort of wedding breakfast, but we felt the sit-down meal gave more opportunity for guests to relax and chat. For our evening food we went for pasties and sausage rolls from Sarah’s Pasties in Looe (I did say we were Cornish after all ha-ha!). They went down an absolute treat, easy to eat on the dance floor! Drink wise we opted for Martini Asti as welcome/toast drinks.”

What kind of personal touches did you love adding to your wedding at Tredudwell?

“We were very fortunate to be able to be surprised with our wonderful puppy Nellie on our wedding day due to Tredudwell allowing dogs on site! I felt like our whole wedding was extremely personal to us, all the little touches I added had something special to me and my husband on them. I feel like Tredudwell gave us the freedom to be able to do this as with a lot of venues everything is provided for you, and you are given a list to chose from. Tredudwell gave us the option to be completely free in our choices and make everything our own. ”

What was your favourite part of the day?

“It’s hard to chose just one, our day was perfect from start to end. We loved being taken around the beautiful grounds with our photographer to capture our memories. We loved our sparkler display during the evening, we loved dancing the night away with our family and friends thanks to our wonderful DJ (Cornwall DJ). But most of all, we love the fact that from start to finish, there was not one hiccup or stress. It ran so smoothly, and we are so grateful for the team at Tredudwell for creating this for us. ”

What is one piece of advice you would share with newly engaged couples who are about to embark on their planning journey at Tredudwell?

“Just book! You will not regret it!

All jokes aside, make sure you research into all the local businesses when you are thinking about Tredudwell as venue, they send you a helpful supplier list, make sure you use it. It’s so helpful and gives you opportunity to find the right people for you and your partner.”

Thank you for leaving this brilliant Google review too:

We celebrated our marriage at Tredudwell in November and honestly it was perfect. Hayley & team were there for every query and helped us along the way in whatever way we needed. The venue is beautiful, spacious and allows for all your guests to celebrate together whether they want to dance the night away or have a seat and a chat. Our photographs came out beautifully due to the amazing grounds and warmth in the venue. Would recommend to anyone who is engaged!

A massive thanks to Angharad and Oliver for sharing all the juicy details about their autumn wedding in Cornwall here at Tredudwell. If you’d like to get in touch to check if we have availability for your wedding date, please get in touch.

Valerie and all at Tredudwell x
