You’ve just got engaged, the exciting news is out, you’re still staring at the sparkly ring every five minutes, and now you have to decide where to actually have your wedding.
With so many beautiful spots around Plymouth, Devon and Cornwall, absolutely anything is possible. But we feel having your wedding at Boringdon Park is the perfect way to celebrate your special day.
Here’s our ten reasons why we think you should have your wedding at Boringdon Park. If you want to find out more you can contact our wedding co-ordinator Amanda on 01752 339113 or email her.
1. The views
You only have to look out the car window as you come along our impressive driveway to see what fabulous views Boringdon Park has.
Set in 200 acres of beautiful grounds with Dartmoor on one side and a stunning panoramic vista out over our golf course and Plym Estuary to Plymouth Sound on the other, your guests will love the location for your special day.
The magnificent views can be seen from the wedding ceremony room, and of course from the terrace where you and your guests will start the celebrations. And think of the photos you will have! There couldn’t be a more perfect backdrop for those memories that will last a lifetime.
2. The Triumph Suite
If you’re going all out with a big wedding extravaganza and want the ‘wow’ factor, a reception in our spacious, modern Triumph Suite is a must. It can hold up to 330 guests for a sit down meal, and there is a choice of two bars within the room itself so you won’t be losing guests to a next door room.
Its classic decor means whatever colour scheme you choose for your wedding, the Triumph Suite will look elegant. There’s already a stage in the room for your band or DJ and a huge dance floor ready to party the night away.
If your wedding is a more intimate affair, our equally beautiful Green room is ideal for smaller receptions for between 50 and 130 guests. It has an adjoining bar and outside garden area where guests can enjoy their wonderful surroundings.
3. The Triumph Arch
You couldn’t find a more stunning location for a wedding photo than under the historic Triumph Arch in our grounds and the woodland beyond. Situated on our golf course, the iconic structure used to form the boundary to Saltram grounds and now lends itself perfectly for capturing those beautiful first moments of married life.
But don’t worry, you don’t need to wreck your shoes and dirty your outfit to get there. We will drive you up to it in our wedding golf buggy along with your photographer to get those all-important shots.
4. Delicious food
We want you and your guests to remember and talk about the food at your wedding for years to come.
You can expect some of the tastiest food in Plymouth served up by our first-class chefs for your Wedding Breakfast that your guests will love.
5. Friendly staff
Nothing is too much trouble for you or your guests at Boringdon Park. Your wedding day is the best day of your life and our attentive and friendly staff aim to make it perfect in every single way.
From the minute you contact us to enquire about a wedding here, to visiting for a look around, throughout every moment of your wedding, we are here to ensure everything runs smoothly, and that it’s as special as you both deserve.
6. The ceremony
Whether you are having a civil ceremony, civil partnership, blessing or vow renewal you are guaranteed nothing will be more beautiful for you and your guests.
If you want everything to happen in one location, Boringdon Park offers a choice of stunning ceremony rooms so both your wedding and reception can take place all in one venue.
We can accommodate an intimate ceremony with just a few of your closest friends and family in our Estuary view suite, or a room full of up to 150 of your nearest and dearest in our Lower view suite. Both rooms have magnificent outlooks and are the perfect setting for pledging your love to one another.
7. Grounds and Terrace
We will roll out the red carpet for you, quite literally, on your wedding day. The 200 acres of stunning grounds are available to you for photos, and we can take you and your wedding party in golf buggies to the best spots to capture them. Whether that’s near the lake, looking out to the Plym Estuary and Plymouth Sound, or the Triumph Arch and woodland.
Our upper terrace is also for you and your guests’ exclusive use on the day, so everyone can enjoy the exquisite surroundings whilst having post ceremony drinks and canapes.
8. Bridal suite
Boringdon Park’s fabulous bridal suite has just undergone an amazing makeover and is the perfect glamorous and elegant space for brides and their entourage to relax in and get ready for their special day in. The huge suite has two bedrooms, a bathroom, lounge area and kitchen diner, and even has its own two-station make-up studio area for the brides and bridesmaids to have their hair and make-up done before the ceremony.
A comfortable, luxurious bed awaits the happy couple to rest after their wedding, and they can enjoy a complimentary full English breakfast the following morning. Couples have use of the Bridal Suite for their wedding night as part of the package, and can also book it for an additional cost for the night before.
9. Bespoke packages
At Boringdon Park we’re great believers that your wedding should be exactly how you both want it to be, and as individual as you are. We don’t want you to have the same wedding as everyone else so we offer you the chance to build your own bespoke package.
We give you the choice and flexibility to choose whatever you want – your perfect drinks, the food you fancy, and all within your own individual budgets. Whether you choose Pimms or Pink Gin for your guests to sip, or have a formal dinner Wedding Breakfast or a relaxed BBQ buffet or Hog Roast, it is up to you. The decision is yours and we will make it happen.
