If you’re looking for a unique venue to hold your wedding ceremony, reception, or both, you can’t get much more iconic and memorable than the Eden Project.

Instead of jetting off to the tropics or the Med, you can marry in the same distinctive atmosphere without even leaving Cornwall. Our Rainforest Biome is the largest indoor jungle in the world and its lush foliage provides a beautiful backdrop for your ceremony. Our Mediterranean Biome recreates the sights and smells of this lovely region, with its bright blooms and fragrant aromas of herbs and citrus trees, guaranteeing an outdoor-style wedding regardless of the British weather.

Special touches

Give your wedding that extra special touch, allow your guests to arrive in style on our bunting decked land train or for grooms who are a little more daring how about making a big entrance by flying down our SkyWire or abseiling into the ceremony. Why not tie the knot in the Malaysian House, in our Rainforest Biome, before embracing the array of back drops we have to offer for your wedding photos including our waterfall and up on our aerial rainforest walkway. 

For something truly special, after dark, receptions can be held in the Mediterranean Biome. Low lights on the paths reflect on the arching ceiling to create the illusion of thousands of stars, a truly fabulous atmosphere for your wedding celebrations.

Each of your wedding guests will receive a personalized voucher from the two of you to return to Eden the following day, for no extra charge, where they can explore all that Eden has to offer as well as continuing the wedding celebrations.

By choosing to marry at Eden, our dedicated events team can assist you every step of the way, enabling you to relax and enjoy your whole wedding experience.

Locally sourced food and drink

If you’re booking your wedding venue in Cornwall, why not make sure your food is sourced locally too? We strive to put as much back into the Cornish economy as possible and to keep our food miles down. We provide the finest seasonal produce, and pride ourselves that 81% (and rising) of it is sourced locally.

Working closely with our Head Chef, we will create a menu that suits your taste and budget, from a delicious wedding breakfast to a traditional three-course sit-down meal or a banquet with a strong focus on locally produced, seasonal food.

Locally sourced flowers

Our fabulous Flower Fairies can work with you to create perfect arrangements, and will match your colour schemes, where possible. As you’d expect from us, we’re passionate about plants, so we’ll make sure your green wedding is green in all senses of the word!

If you will be holding your ceremony in the Rainforest or Mediterranean Biomes, we will supply the flowers as externally sourced flowers could contaminate the plants in our Biomes.

Alternatively, why not opt for a beautiful bouquet made from silk flowers, felts and buttons. This is a great way to tie in the Eden ethos of sustainability by using items such as brooches, jewels and other family heirlooms to create a bouquet that you can keep for life.

Everyone who came to celebrate with us raved about what an incredible venue it is, how fantastic the food was and what an amazing team you all are.
