A Magical Winery Wedding Day

Knightor is a working winery, that can be found snuggled into the rolling Cornish landscape above St Austell Bay. It offers the most exquisite and stunning venue suitable for elopements, intimate weddings and for those wanting a few more guests, weddings for up to 90 people. This venue has a rare, natural beauty combined with outstanding food and wine, and, topped off with the most friendly and helpful staff you would wish for. No matter what size your wedding is. What’s more it has a legal wedding licence meaning the legalities and celebrations can take place together. For us, it’s a “dream ticket” of a wedding venue that gives couples affordable luxury in a stunning, sought after location.


You’ll have access to a plethora of stunning backdrops to your special day in the 4 acres of accessible grounds including: vineyards, pasture and orchards all surrounded by traditional Cornish hedges. Just perfect for your wedding day photography and videography! You’ll choose from an indoor or outdoor ceremony. For weddings in the warmer months you can enjoy your ceremony in the grounds and say your 'I do's' surrounded by wildflowers under the arbour. In the cooler months, the historic granite barn provides an atmospheric and alluring alternative. Your reception can be held outside in the charming courtyard or in the threshing barn where a dance floor, bar and seating can be set up for your wedding celebrations. 


You should be in no doubt that the team at Knightor Winery knows how to host the very best feasts and celebrations. They serve only the finest local produce, superb award-winning English wine, the quality of which is met by the fabulous service you and your guests can expect as standard.


The biggest questions really lie with you…Are you going to elope or bring a handful, or many guests? Which of the mouth-watering relaxed menus will you choose? Will you choose a relaxed outdoor meal in the courtyard washed down with cold Cornish bubbles to privately toast your wedding or enjoy a fully-fledged wedding feast followed by dancing in the threshing barn?


Whatever your preferences and choices, Knightor Winery really should be on your shortlist.

Remote and unspoilt, yet easily accessible

Knightor is located just above St Austell Bay in mid Cornwall. Less than a hour from Plymouth and easily accessed from the A30 and A390 by car. For couples and guests taking public transport, it’s a 10-minute drive from St Austell (London mainline station), and less than 40 mins drive from Newquay Airport. Once you and your guests are here, you’re within walking distance to the Eden Project, a short drive from the picturesque seaside towns of Fowey, Charlestown and Carlyon Bay and just 30 minutes from Padstow on the North coast.


Elopements and Intimate Weddings at Knightor Winery

Imagine a quiet relaxed wedding ceremony for just the two of you, or surrounded just by your very nearest and dearest, saying your 'I do's' surrounded by wildflowers under arbour; enjoying a glass of elegant and crisp Cornish sparkling wine after your ceremony; and, spending time exploring the venue capturing your perfect photographs. Alternatively, if you’re planning a winter wedding, the cosy threshing barn with its high beamed ceilings , Cornish slate floors and exposed rustic stone walls provides a very special place to exchange your vows.


The team have lots of ideas to help you to create your own unique intimate wedding day. 

For example, Knightor is not only a wonderful wedding venue but also a boutique working winery.  Here you’ll find wonderful Cornish wines to enjoy and toast your marriage and perhaps you’ll want to include a wine tasting experience as part of your special day?


Can’t whittle your guestlist down?

Don’t worry! If you feel you’d prefer a slightly larger gathering, that’s fine here too. Flexibility and exclusivity come as part of the package if your dream wedding includes more people.


With the same choices as before: indoor ceremony in the characterful vaulted ceiling, slate floored threshing barn or an outdoor ceremony amongst the wild flowers in the arbour.
