Wedding Venues in Cornwall by the sea

Coastal Wedding Venue in Cornwall

The Rockpool Beach Café lies nestled in the Gwithian dunes.

Licensed for ceremonies, our relaxed, coastal venue provides a stunning location for your wedding day. Enjoy spectacular views over St. Gothian Sands Nature Reserve, the rolling Gwithian dunes, out to the sea at Godrevy Beach, as well as the picturesque National Trust headland. Just 3 minutes on foot (300m) brings you to three miles of golden sand, with view across the St. Ives Bay.

We can arrange a host of options from exclusive hire where the entire venue and grounds are yours for all or just part of a day, to room only packages and elopements.

Seasonal menus using the finest, local produce



We provide capacity for a formal sit down meal for 80 in one room, or more across both areas. 

We work with couples to create individual and bespoke menus, from informal BBQs and paella feasts to more traditional three course options. Additional items such as canapés, cheese tables, evening snacks and buffet menus can also be included. We are proud to use the finest, local and sustainable Cornish suppliers, which is great if you are looking for a Cornish theme to your day!


“We cannot thank Claire and Ryan enough for making our wedding day the most perfect experience! Nothing was too much trouble for them and their team. The styling and decor looked amazing and we loved being able to walk out onto the beach for our pictures.”

“The Rockpool team went above and beyond for our wedding reception. The food was excellent, each dish was delicious and all our guests said how much they enjoyed them. The service complimented the food. Again it was first class. Our guests were kept happy and supplied with food and drink without fuss. I would highly recommend The Rockpool for either your everyday dining experience, or as a wedding reception venue. Nothing was too much trouble from the planning to the actual day. We thank you all for your passion and hard work in making our day run so perfectly.”

“We had our wedding at The Rockpool in December. The setting was perfect for a winter wedding. A crackling fire, tasty wholesome winter warmers for our dinner and a wild backdrop for our photos. The staff were fantastic during the day, so friendly, welcoming to our guests and attentive to my husband and I. Our wedding coordinator replied swiftly to our emails and our questions throughout our time planning for the big day. They had fantastic ideas when my family and I came to decorate the tables, we cannot thank them enough for all the effort they poured in to the day. The food was a massive hit! From the canapés to the mains, all plates were empty at the end; which is a great sign. Just so delicious!!! The guests loved every minute of our wedding, and so did we. I would thoroughly recommend holding a wedding at The Rockpool. We cannot thank you all enough.”
