Tie the knot

Weddings by the water…

Gliding down a waterside aisle. Reciting heartfelt vows with the Cornish ocean and bobbing sailboats as witnesses. Private charters across the river. Award-winning food and sunset celebrations under a canopy of stars. The Greenbank is the dream wedding venue in Cornwall for marking the start of forever.

Intimate. Understated. All the frills. Something quirky. Keeping it traditional. Every detail covered. Relaxed or refined. Civil ceremony, or vow renewal. As the seasons and tides ebb and flow, our wedding venue in Cornwall remains a canvas for you and your partner to plan, craft, and create a day that encapsulates your love and unity. One thing is for sure. From the moment the sun rises on your special day, up until the last glass of champagne has been sipped under the moonlit sky, we’ll make sure your day runs without a hitch.

Before we take care of the finer details, we need to set the scene for your nuptials. We have two beautiful options for you to choose from.

The Riverbank Suite

For something a little more traditional – our Riverbank Suite offers an elegant space which can be personalised as little or as much as you’d like. Bright and airy with uninterrupted views across the harbour towards Flushing, The Riverbank also includes a private balcony, dancefloor, and bar. The perfect option for a winter wedding without the worry of the weather on the day.

Our waterside marquee

If you’re looking for an outdoor wedding venue in Cornwall, our marquee is our newest space for saying ‘I do’. Perched on the harbour wall, you couldn’t be closer to the water’s edge if you tried. A great choice for a summer wedding breakfast or evening reception, the marquee can be dressed in keeping with your theme. Dine with your loved ones with the ocean as your backdrop, take a few steps to your own private charter via our pontoon, and savour those special first hours as newlyweds in your very own maritime dream.

Maximum guest numbers

The marquee:
100 seated guests
150 evening guests

The Riverbank:
100 seated guests
120 evening guests

Love at first bite

Whichever space you opt for, we want your first meal as a married couple to be exceptional. Our Executive Head Chef Nick Hodges has created a selection of lovingly-prepared wedding breakfast menus which reflect our focus on top quality local produce and incredible flavour with every forkful. Our bar team are ready to talk tipples on your big day, and can craft a special celebratory wine and drinks menu individually designed to complement the rest of your wedding.

Our wedding gift to you

After the cake has been cut and the guests have said their goodbyes, we’ve got one last treat for you to end the perfect day. Check into the honeymoon suite for your first night as newly-weds. Shut the door on the world. Run a bubble bath for two. Gaze across the starlit harbour, and soak up the joyful memories from your magical day.

If your guests would like to stay the night too, we can offer exclusive room rates as part of your wedding party. A Cornish breakfast awaits the following morning, before we say farewell.

“Thank you so much! We had a really lovely day and one to remember. The whole day was perfect.

Mr and Mrs Reader – April 2023
“We can’t thank The Greenbank enough for making our wedding the day it was. Everyone was incredibly professional, friendly and attentive. We were nervous in the build-up, but we need not have been because the day ran so smoothly. We had a delicious lunch in The Riverbank – we received many compliments for the high standard of food, followed by a drinks reception in the marquee on the quay. We were actually able to relax and enjoy ourselves the whole day because everything was taken care of.”
Mr and Mrs Watson, July 2023
“Congratulations to all at The Greenbank for making our daughter’s wedding party such a fantastic day. The staff were super-friendly and efficient – and the food was superb. It really is a skill to be able to serve 100 people and ensure every meal seems individually prepared. I cannot recommend more highly.”
Mr Nicholls, August 2023

Mr and Mrs Flynn – April 2023
“The wedding was wonderful, and we were well looked after. You did an incredible job and really used your initiative to make it an incredible day and make sure we were prepared.
