More and more couples are ditching hotel package weddings because they want their special day done their way and to have a wedding that truly reflects their personalities. It’s also a great way to have a larger wedding at an affordable price.

St Ives Guildhall is the perfect venue for a DIY or bespoke wedding. It has a fabulous vintage feel with a great capacity for both dining and dancing. It’s a great blank canvas for your day: It can be dressed with layers and fairy lights for a perfect indoor marquee which is truly weatherproof or stripped back vintage-style, to reveal our shiny sprung floor which can take a lot of dancing.

All of the main churches in St Ives are a short walk away or you can marry at the hall or upstairs in one of our upper rooms.

The harbour and beaches are all in walking distance – providing a beautiful backdrop for your photographs or why not be blessed at our picture perfect Island Chapel.

We have a licence to hold civil ceremonies and would be delighted to host both your wedding and reception.

Please note – in conjunction with booking our venue you will also need to independently book and pay for a Registrar to conduct your ceremony at the Guildhall by contacting Cornwall Council Registration Department on 0300 1234 181 Cornwall Council Registrar Team.  This is your responsibility – as without a Registrar you cannot legally be married at the Guildhall. Registrar fees vary.

For more information on our packages price list or to book, contact our friendly team at St Ives Town Council on 01736 322 605.

We would be happy to show you around – get in touch to arrange a suitable time and date.
