2-NIGHT WEDDING FLOW
There are no set timings of a wedding stay, however, we do have years of experience of what works well ensuring your wedding captures all the moments you are looking for in your wedding, and also provides your guests with a great time to remember!
A wonderful 2 night wedding celebration could flow as follows:
Welcome Chat @ 2pm
As soon as you arrive at Trevenna after many months of planning, meet with your Wedding Host for a Welcome Chat, to go through and confirm the final details your wedding.
Then hang up ‘the dress’ & suits, unload decorations, gifts etc, providing a few hours to start decorating the Garden Venue before your Guests check-in.
Guest Check-In @ 4pm
Guest check-in to the Barns and Rooms is from 4pm.
Guests are directed to the Farm House Bar for Check In. Our hosting team will provide a room key and show your Guests to their Barn or Bedroom, according to your allocations.
Any Guests arriving earlier than 4pm Check In, may need to wait in the Farm House where they will be offered a nice pot of tea or coffee until their Barn or Bedroom is ready.
We want all your guests to feel at home here at Trevenna. Your Guests may help themselves to tea, coffee & fresh farm milk in their Barns and Rooms along with a homemade Welcome Treat. Our Cornish Cream Tea is a firm favourite with our Guests!
Welcome Dinner @ 7pm
A Welcome Dinner during the evening of the day before your wedding day is a great way to kick start your celebrations!
The Farm House Bar provides an informal space for your resident guests to meet, relax and anticipate the excitement of the next day…
The Welcome Dinner tends to be served around 7pm, either in the Farm House or outside in the walled Gardens during a warm evening in the Summer months.
Early to Bed, Early to Rise @ 11pm
The Farm House Bar closes at 11pm and the Farm House will close at 11.30 to allow everyone to get a good night’s rest before the big day!
The following timings are based on a Ceremony time of 1pm. Remember, we can be flexible on timings and this is just a guide! Please get in touch with the Team for more information.
Bridal Breakfast @ 8.45am
The Bride and her Bridal Party tends to get ready in the beautiful Threshing Bedroom 4.
With floor to ceiling mirrors, lots of lovely natural light and a long bench perfect for hair and makeup, this room is always buzzing with joy and laughter.
Just down the beautiful glass staircase, we normally set out a Bridal Breakfast next to the fireplace for the Bridal party to enjoy (in peace away from the other resident guests!).
The beautiful balcony window provides gorgeous views over the giant Sycamore Tree and wildlife pond towards the Arbour, … also a great place to watch your Guests arrive without them seeing you!
Morning Before Breakfast @ 9am
Breakfast is served at 9am as a communal event in the cosy Farm House for all other guests staying at Trevenna, including the Groom.
Stacks of pancakes or bubble & squeak are served along with bowls of fresh local fruit & berries, yogurt, homemade granolas and toast with local jams.
Pre-Ceremony Drinks @ 12pm
The Farm House Bar usually opens 1 hour before the Ceremony for Guests to gather for pre-Ceremony drinks.
Local draft Ales, Lagers, Ciders, Premium spirits, Wines, Champagne and Cocktails are on offer for your Guests to enjoy as the excitement builds…
Guests wait at the Farm House Bar until invited by the Hosting Team to make their way to the Ceremony. This keeps your ceremony spaces quiet and special until just before the Ceremony.
Ceremony @ 1pm
At Trevenna, we are fortunate to have 3 beautiful Wedding Ceremony locations, from the beautiful handmade wood and slate Arbour in the grounds of Trevenna, to the stunning and contemporary Threshing Barn for more intimate indoor Ceremonies, to the light and elegant Garden Venue which provides an ‘open air’ feel to bring the outside-in.
The Hosting Team will welcome Guests to the Ceremony, where the Groomsmen and Ushers usually assist your Guests to their seats.
Ceremonies are conducted by the Registrars (who represent the Cornwall Registration Service), or by your chosen Celebrant.
Celebration Drinks, Canapés & Photos @ 1.30pm
As soon as you have said your vows and shared your first kiss as a married couple, it is time to celebrate!
Celebration Drinks & Canapés are served either on the lawn by the Arbour, or in the Threshing Bar with its lovely Oak cladding.
This is the perfect opportunity to take lots of photos in the beautiful grounds of Trevenna.
Wedding Feast @ 3pm
Now it is time for the Wedding Feast!
Guests are invited to take their seats in the Garden Venue for the Wedding Feast, served from our Farm Kitchen.
Your entrance into the Wedding Feast will create a cheer!
Our Garden Venue may seat up to 120 guests for your Wedding Feast.
All our delicious food is prepared at Trevenna in our Farm Kitchen.
Our sustainable menu celebrates local, seasonal and fresh produce! Whether you prefer a 3-course Gastro Farm House dining experience, or a more relaxed sharing feast, our team of Chefs will develop the perfect menu for you!
Toasts & Speeches @ 5.30pm
Prosecco is served for the Speeches & Toasts.
Cake Cutting & First Dance @ 8pm
The First Dance usually take place immediately after the Cake Cutting as everyone will already be gathered.
Your Guests dance the night away in the Threshing Barn or simply relax Garden Venue with its subtle mood lighting.
Our cosy outdoor Fire Stacks are always a draw for those evening fire side drinks.
Evening Munchies @ 9pm
Evening Munchies recharge Guests to celebrate until late.
Evening Munchies are made available from Trestle Tables in the Garden Venue for Guests to help themselves.
