Wheal Roots Mine Workings at The Poldark Tin Mine and Trenere Wolas Gardyns [Lower Trenear Gardens] provide a beautiful rural setting for Civil Wedding Ceremonies. Over 40 weddings have been held here over the years.

A delightful venue for very special ceremonies

Wheal Roots 18th century Tin Mine workings at The Poldark Mine can be used for Civil Marriage Ceremonies as it an approved place duly licenced by Cornwall Council. The licence permits Civil Weddings and the Renewal of Wedding Vows; in the tin mine; in the garden; or in a private meeting room. Naming Ceremonies can also be arranged.

Tenth Wedding Anniversaries are quite a good idea in the mine workings or in our grounds as the 10th anniversary of a wedding is traditionally celebrated with gifts of tin - what better place to do this but in a genuine Cornish Tin Mine.

VENUE 1 Garden & Bandstand - 40 or more persons - Trenere Wolas Gardyns have been used for tin processing since the 13th century. The covered bandstand in the garden is licenced for up to 40 persons. Use of the garden and bandstand is naturally dependent on good weather, but many more guests can be seated in the open air on the lawns around the bandstand beside our main pond.

VENUE 2 Holman Cavern - 25 persons - The workings of Wheal Roots Tin Mine date from the 1700s and have been open to the public for over 44 years. This is the only Tin Mine where wedding ceremonies can be held.

The underground Holman Cavern in the mine can accommodate up to 25 persons. Its an ideal size for small groups attending Civil Marriage Ceremonies. If required, it is possible to arrange a televised relay of the ceremony [at an additional cost] to large screens or televisions on the surface.

VENUE 3 The Pavilion is a private meeting or exhibition room - up to 120 persons can be seated in a cinema style and the rustic-style room can be arranged as required for wedding ceremonies for which it is licenced. This room is ideal for use during wet weather just in case the gardens and bandstand are booked and rain descends.

CATERING We work with a very local restaurant and function suite who are very experienced wedding and function caterers. They can provide a wedding champagne or fizzy wine reception in the gardens which is popular. Finger and cold buffets and ox or pork roasts, barbeques can easily be arranged either here in the mine gardens or more formal dining can be provided with late disco and dancing at the local venue.

Marquees, bands, Djs, and other bespoke arrangements can be very easily organized. We will be pleased to discuss prices and choices.

9 Hole golfing and football golf can also be arranged for letting off some steam.
