Bodmin lies in the centre of Cornwall, south west of Bodmin Moor. Bodmin has had a long and interesting history ever since St. Petroc founded a monastery in Bodmin during the 6th century but offers a completely modern holiday destination today. The town is an ideal base for a stay in Cornwall. It is just 30 minutes away from the famous Cornish beaches on both the North and South coasts of the county. Bodmin also lies at the gateway of the Camel Trail, a famous route for walkers and cyclists.
A major attraction for any visitor is, of course, Bodmin Moor. The moor is dominated by dramatic tors made from granite which offer views across the sweeping expanse of open moorland. The windswept, unspoilt landscape is guaranteed to make any visitor leave their troubles behind and relax in the amazing natural beauty of the area. Add in the nearby visitor attractions of the Eden Project and the Lost Gardens of Heligan and this could be the perfect place to visit.
Getting married in Bodmin leaves you spoilt with choice from the wide range of wedding venues on offer but means your guests can turn your special day into a real chance to get away from the hustle and bustle of city life and relax in Cornwall's charming environment.
Confirmed nature lovers could even venture out onto the moor itself for some really unique wedding photos but whichever of Bodmin's wedding venues you choose, you are guaranteed a wedding day you'll remember forever.
Once you've chosen your location, start planning the day itself. Whilst church weddings can bring a traditional feel to proceedings, civil ceremonies offer a chance to write your own wedding vows and really bring a special personal touch to the important moment. Civil ceremonies can take place in most of Bodmin's wedding venues but be sure to arrange this as soon as possible to ensure you don't miss out on a slot.
Wedding receptions come in as many different shapes and sizes as wedding couples themselves. In Bodmin you will find wedding venues perfect for intimate civil ceremonies followed by a small and select wedding breakfast, as well as those capable of hosting even the largest of wedding receptions. It's really up to you to decide what style of wedding you want so make sure you follow your heart rather than getting caught up in the latest wedding trends.
Wedding venues are often more than happy to provide catering and can work with you to design a menu that incorporates your favourite foods as well as matching the budget you have to work with. Finalising the menu early will help prevent last minute stress.
Many wedding receptions have entertainment of one sort or another but it's up to you to decide what will suit you and your guests best. Whether you hire a big brass band or a singer to belt out ballads make sure you relax and enjoy the day, you'll remember it for years to come.
