Your Devon and Cornwall Wedding - Page number 25 - July/August 2021 (Issue 32)

CARBIS BAY ESTATE, ST. IVES, CORNWALL This luxurious coastal retreat, venue of the 2021 G7 Summit, enjoys a waterfront location on a privately owned 25-acre Blue Flag beach offering impeccable service, fine food, superb spa facilities and breathtaking views. The Main House features individually furnished rooms a stone’s throw from the pool. Dotted around the valley are family-sized apartments and cottages and located next to the ocean are chic beach houses, lodges and suites. Moët & Chandon has created a collection of Summer Champagne experiences with hospitality partners across the UK, including Carbis Bay Estate, to elevate and celebrate shared moments of togetherness. For something a little different this summer, indulge in a delightful Champagne Afternoon Tea by the sea at this popular retreat for £65. Enjoy a selection of mouth-watering finger sandwiches, warm scones with Cornish clotted cream and local preserves, indulgent cakes and a pot of freshly brewed tea or coffee. Inject a little bit of sparkle with a glass of Moët & Chandon champagne. Beach ceremonies for up to 120 loved ones take place on the Lower Deck at The Wedding Hut, an exclusive wedding venue overlooking the sea. A marquee extension over the upper-level sun deck allows for music and dancing (when restrictions lift). There’s also the Ocean Venue that holds up to 150 guests for a ceremony or they can take place up at the main house inside The Godrevy Room for intimate gatherings of up to 50. The wedding breakfast and reception are also hosted in these areas and the quirky Gannet Inn located on the estate is available for exclusive use. Ceremony licence?
