Looking for some great place in Cornwall to celebrate your Big Day? No doubt, Polhawn Fort should be in your considerations list. Tying the knot among the walls of a fortification dating back to a Napoleonic times and build for the military needs of the great conqueror, could become the most intense and profound experience of the two hearts joined into one entity.
Historic Polhawn Fort is a picturesque wedding venue located on the Cornish coast near Plymouth and the South Devon coast. Its uniqueness starts to rise with its seat on the top of the cliff which opens the grandeur of the nature: the oceanic waters of the Celtic Sea and British Channel, sharp ledges of the rocks descending downwards, constantly droning noisy waves, casual yells of the seagulls and the charm continues to amaze you here on the every corner. There is no better place to think about the sublime laid in the patterns of the beauty of our world and the strength of the man’s will and feelings facing this beauty.
There is enough space for really diverse needs at Polhawn Fort. You may find a quite place to relax watching surroundings; the ceremony can take place in the open air or in two halls inside the fort suited for the different number of people; it has a considerable pawn as well, which can accept a setting of a tent, where dinner can be served for larger groups of people.
We had a chance to capture the moments of Nazia and Martin’s wedding and we fell in love with our couple and with the venue from the first sight. You may watch our final result clicking the video below. There is nothing more romantic and dedicated exactly for the celebration of love as a sunset above the ocean, as a symbolism and feeling of being on the land’s end (by the way there is a spot called this way in Cornwall) and the historic nature of the fort itself. A touch of the history adds something timeless to any action or decision you make.
It is a really great place not only for the guests but for the vendors as well. The venue obliges to act in a relaxed and friendly way. And you may feel this in the air. Not even taking into account that is a paradise looking for the unique shots both for videographers and photographers. You’ll have the inimitable memories of the most important day in your life. Check the wedding day highligts video to make this sure.
We had a pleasure working with true professionals able to create really unforgettable events.
