Getting Married at the Gannet Inn

Intimate and cosy, tie the knot in our quirky coastal inn with stylish boutique interior, sumptuous sofas, leather armchairs and feature log fireplace set against the backdrop of Mulberry adorned walls - the perfect setting for an intimate ceremony.

Located just 5 minutes from the charming coastal town of St Ives, this quirky and unique venue gives you a surprise around every corner: from the 16 gorgeous bedrooms that are brimming with individuality to the garden terrace which overlooks St Ives Bay.

Day Weddings & Civil Partnerships

At the Gannet we understand that your wedding or civil partnership is one of the most important days of your life to be treasured forever.

Our dedicated team will be on hand to help guide you through the planning and delivery of your special day.

Step out onto the garden terrace following your ceremony in the main lounge or quirky dining room or even in front of the roaring log fire – the choice is yours.

Should a traditional church wedding ceremony be preferred, then we would be delighted to host your bespoke reception and wedding breakfast.

When you hire our venue you have complete freedom in your choice of décor, set up, entertainment, and of course importantly a fantastic choice of food and drink for your guests.

Let us inspire you with our fantastic range of wedding food; delight guests with slow-baked duck leg or get everyone talking over some sharing platters; satisfy with crowd-pleasing dishes or amaze with daring delicacies from our dedicated team of chefs.

We’re on a mission to serve up incredible, exciting, satisfying and inventive food that’s bursting with flavour and with wedding breakfast food prices starting from £40 per person (choice of 2 starters, 2 mains & 2 desserts), they offer great value too.

Carbis Bay Beach

Nothing says paradise like the sand between your toes and the sea salt in your hair which is why nearby Carbis Bay Beach is the perfect backdrop for your wedding photos.

This unique beach enjoys a spectacular setting just a short walk from the hotel. With dazzling turquoise seas, powdery golden sands and panoramic views across St Ives Bay, you’ll have oodles of options for your wedding photographs.

C Bay Spa at Carbis Bay Estate

Relax pre or post-ceremony with a spa journey for two at nearby Carbis Bay Estate.

Candlelit treatment rooms – including one for couples – neighbour a fire-heated relaxation lounge and decked balcony, which faces the bay. Sit in your fluffy robe, holding a hot mug of herbal tea or glass of Ruinart champagne, and just… relax.

A spa food menu is available, too, and there’s also an outdoor garden sauna. Prefer private pampering? A beachside pavilion stands ready on request.
