Autumn Wedding Fair
at the glorious Pentillie Castle
We absolutely love this venue and it is without doubt one of our most romantic ones. Set in spectacular Cornish location with extensive mature gardens and dreamy views across the River Tamar, it's charms are very hard to ignore! Built in 1698 and re-modelled in 1809, it has a fascinating history [more of which later] and it also has its own utterly fabulous Bathing Hut [pictured] which is a separate stone building within the 2000 acre estate, standing on its own quayside and perfect for more intimate weddings or civil ceremonies.
On Sunday 19 October they are holding a Wedding Fair and so you will have the opportunity to explore this exquisite Castle.
There will be over 40 fabulous exhibitors showcasing some of the finest wedding products and services in the South West of England. With beautiful bridal wear & accessories, floristry & photography, wedding styling & planning, jewellery, cakes, floristry….and much more, their Fair will be brimming full of elegance and style. There will also be live music performances and ‘al fresco’ refreshments, Pop Up Hair & Beauty Parlour, roaming Catwalk…our Fair will delight and inspire. Blue Fizz’ ‘vintage style’ marquee will also be ‘in situ’ on the lower lawn.
The Romantic Pentillie Pentillie has a fascinating history too - Sir James Tillie, who served as land agent to the nearby estate of Sir John Coryton, built Pentillie in 1698. When Sir John died in mysterious circumstances aged only 42, Tillie married his widow, joining the two estates and considerably improving his wealth. He had grandiose ideas of himself and commissioned a statue of his likeness to stand outside the Castle.When Tillie himself died he asked to be interred in a purpose-built mausoleum at Pentillie so he would be ready for his resurrection. A statue of him still remains in the mausoleum. In 1809, William Wilkins remodelled Pentillie into a commanding castle fit for its location over the Tamar Valley.
