  • Beautiful venue and perfect day! Polhawn Fort is perched on the edge of the long gorgeous beach where I grew up as a child. When Simon and I got engaged I knew exactly where I wanted to get married! I wanted a wedding which was a bit different, I wanted to include treasure hunts, a visit from santa for the kids, fun canapés (Cornish crab ice cream cones for example!) and Polhawn Fort has let us do just that. You hire the fort for 4 days, and all your closest friends and family can stay in their gorgeously decorated rooms with fantastic sea views. Then you tailor the wedding yourself - we hired our own caterers, made our own cake, supplied our own flowers and created our own perfect wedding - with a fun Christmas theme. Polhawn Fort enables you to do whatever you want and create your perfect weekend - or week - not just the wedding day! I would recommend it to anyone getting married who loves being by the ocean, whether it’s on a beautiful sunny day or a stormy one - the fort caterers for it all. We had log fires burning and fur shrugs, and a stand for S’mores with a sparkler send off! Perfect day… Perfect venue…
  • Thank you! We had the most amazing day, of course in part due to the impossibly beautiful setting, but mainly it was down to an array of wonderful and super professional suppliers and the brilliant team at Polhawn Fort. They are on hand to answer all of your questions throughout the planning process. James is efficient and unflappable on the day- ensuring I made it to the aisle on time and working behind the scenes arranging furniture! The perfect balance of flexibility and support!
  • Polhawn Fort is a magical venue and we had our perfect winter wedding there this December. I loved how we could be as creative as we wanted and everything was totally up to us - which differed from other venues which followed a set day plan. The staff are super helpful and made planning it (even from NZ) much easier. We had all our close family staying on site for the long weekend which was fab. Lovely venue and I would highly recommend it.
