Wedding and reception venue in Truro, Cornwall
Weddings at The Alverton are simply stunning. From the flagstonned terrace and the manicured grounds to the beautiful and dramatic stone exterior and trailing ivy, The Alverton offers a real escape to a beautiful secret garden wedding venue.
Enjoy Champagne on the terrace overlooking the grounds or stroll hand in hand through the woodland, enjoying the natural beauty of the surroundings and the perfect backdrop for your photos. The piece de resistance and show-stopper that makes Alverton weddings so special is the Great Hall. Built by John Loughborough Pearson, who also built Truro Cathedral, the Great Hall is perfect to add a little drama to your big day. Cornish stone pillars, marble staging and dramatic arched ceiling are all incredible features with a rich colour scheme and a sense of utter grandeur.
In the Winter, fill the Great Hall with candles and have carol singers for the drinks reception. Place mistletoe in the old oak doorway as guests enter and enjoy mulled wine by the fire following the ceremony. Enjoy a lavish sit down dinner with centrepieces made from red roses and Winter berries or poinsettias. Line the aisle with bay trees entwined with fairy lights that twinkle and make the dress sparkle. The Great Hall offers so many options and is a spectacular place to hold a wedding.
Wedding Ceremonies & Civil Partnerships
A fully licensed venue for wedding ceremonies, civil partnerships and blessings - here at The Alverton we offer a classic, romantic, elegant setting where your wish is our command. Let our beautifully unique hotel become yours for a day so you can get married in true stately style.
The Great Hall is a beautiful backdrop to say your vows and is licensed for up to 140 people to witness your ceremony. Imagine walking up the aisle on a red carpet, with gorgeous stainless steel lanterns lighting your way, to find your partner waiting for you surrounded by our complimentary church candles. Ceremonies are very personal and we will do everything we can to help make it just that - whether it is a small and intimate affair surrounded by candles or a huge celebration of your love filled with everyone you know, we have ways to tailor the room layout to fit your needs.
If you choose to get married elsewhere, perhaps at the Cathedral or your local church, The Alverton can host the rest of your day from your drinks reception through to the evening celebrations.
Receptions and Celebrations
The Great Hall seats up to 140 guests during the day for your wedding breakfast and holds up to 180 in the evening for a standing reception. Our team of talented chefs, led by Head Chef Simon George, are passionate about creating delicious dishes for your big day from our wide range of menu options. Or just ask if there's something particular you have in mind. There's also an array of delicious drinks to choose from to welcome your guests, and in the evening The Great Hall has its own well stocked and stylish bar. The acoustics of the arched ceiling make The Great Hall ideal for live music and a night to remember!
We appreciate not everyone wants a grand affair, so we also have a variety of beautiful, smaller function suites perfect for a more intimate Wedding Breakfast or celebration.
