Carbis Bay, St Ives, United Kingdom
Luxury, Glamour, Romance since 1894. Set in the heart of our very own sandy bay with stunning sea views, Carbis Bay has been hosting grand weddings and intimate gatherings.
What’s better than getting married? Getting married on the beach!
Set against the backdrop of its privately owned Blue Flag beach, as exotic and exhilarating as any British shoreline, Carbis Bay fits the bill.
Twelve separate areas of the estate are licensed for ceremonies, including the Wedding Hut on the buttery sand, an outdoor pavilion and beautiful function suites inside the Main House hotel. From classic to quirky, small and intimate to grand and glam, weddings are expertly tailored to every couple’s precise wishes.
In addition, cocktail parties and barbeques can be thrown overlooking the turquoise waters, perhaps before a beachside firework finale. Right on the beach are the hotel’s coastal-chic Beach Lodges and Beach Suites, some of them boasting hot tubs and roof gardens. Those make for a comfortable and indulgent first night of wedlock.
Thistle Poole is the perfect setting for your special day, offering the most stunning views across Poole Harbour and Brownsea Island, a real WOW factor your guests will talk about long after your wedding.
