Ian & Hilary, August 2016.
‘I wanted to write a few words to say thank you to the staff at the Eco Park for the opportunity they gave Hilary and I to host our guests at our wedding in one of the most outstanding venues you can possibly imagine, not just in the British Isles but possibly the world. It’s true that I am a little biased in that a little of my heart will always belong there now but even so I believe you couldn’t imagine a more stunning and user friendly environment to hold a wedding party. If you don’t believe me go and take a look. True we were blessed with a beautiful day, a beautiful bride and wonderful guests but the backdrop was nothing short of stunning and, honestly, even if the weather had been less than ‘primo’ then the whole event would take on a kind of Poldarkesque quality that you wouldn’t get (and couldn’t pay for) anywhere else.
As if the venue wasn’t enough (it was) the venue delivered on so many other levels as well. The pre- wedding assistance was superb. Kath fielded every query, panicked question and general pre-wedding skittishness that we could throw at her (there was a lot) and pointed us to some great local suppliers who added to the great theatre that can be created there. The food was fantastic as well, the chef was so enthusiastic. In truth we had signed up with another more carnivorous caterer originally but we were so pleased we went with the Vegetarian option in the end. It suited the venue, it suited the guests and it suited us. Subsequently we had many requests for some of the recipes even from dyed in the wool Meaties. The wine and beer was quality as well, much better than hunting for your own, although I remember thinking the corkage was good value as well.
I don’t want to say too much about our day. You will make your own dream come true, but we were made so welcome by the Registrars and our guests really entered into the spirit of having a whole weekend to spend time together either on site camping (bring a big hammer for your pegs!) or in the local area. Furthermore, the staff worked tirelessly to make the day run well. I cannot explain enough how smoothly it all went and this was down to their expertise and delivery (thank you Sophie!).
I can’t say much more than that- just that in Porth Towan Eco Park we found a wedding venue that you can truly paint your dreams on one the most welcoming and flattering canvases you could wish for.’
’What can I say – Saturday was just totally amazing. We loved every single minute and so did all of our guests. We’ve had so much great feedback about the venue and how beautiful it is and what a wonderful setting. Thank you for all of you help in the lead up and of course on the day you were completely awesome.’
Gemma & Kit
‘We had the most perfect day at the Eco Park. It was great being able to plan our special day around the the whole site making our wedding unique to us and adding a Cornish/festival feel. The team were fab and helped us with every step of the planning and organising as well as providing the catering which was delicious. All our guests had a smile on their faces through out the day, It’s a shame it went so quickly! Thank you so much to all who made our day so memorable’
Maria Chiara & Freddy
‘The Eco Park exceeded all our expectations as a venue, vibe and location. The wild sea and surrounding history in the way of tin mines and ancient field systems made this a magical and memorable place to marry. We were able to adapt and use the barn space in creative ways which really made the day our own. At no point were our ideas too ‘out there’ for the Mount Pleasant team. The staff were always friendly and supportive and have a fabulous sense of humour to boot! All in all our wedding at the Eco Park was, and always will be, the best day of our lives.’
Molly and Mike
‘Since our wedding-day, the most common feedback we’ve had from guests has been how much they enjoyed the Eco-Park. As a venue, it was perfectly self-contained to hold everything we wanted and, from the ceremony in the amphitheatre to the speeches and toasts in the fire-pit to the party in the barn, it wasn’t just a wedding, but a mini-festival. Above all, the Eco-Park allowed one very special thing: it made our non-Cornish guests fall in love with this little slice of Cornwall as deeply as we always have.
A perfect wedding at the perfect location. Thanks Tim and Amy!’
Ross and Michelle
‘Having our wedding at Mount Pleasant Ecological Park gave us the freedom to create a unique experience for everyone involved. Surrounded by the beauty of the north coast, we made our vows in the amphitheatre, had a banquet in the barn and started the evening celebration with a Cornish Ceilidh. A camp fire in the cob courtyard was a wonderful way to end our wedding day. So many happy memories!
Many thanks for making all of this possible.’
