Imagine Your Wedding

At St Mary, Bradoc, Lostwithiel, PL22 RN5

Your special day in a secluded, spiritual, tranquil place, older than most castles, surrounded by the relics of ancient peoples who for thousands of years worshiped, lived and worked in the lands around this ancient Church. Where there has been Christian worship from at least the sixth century. This is one of Cornwall’s most beautiful and forgotten largely 13th – 15th century buildings, in a stunning setting and central location adjacent to the Boconnoc Estate.

Our commitment to you: –
Our promise is that we will work with you to help make your dreams come true.


St Mary the Virgin Bradoc

Welcome to our beautiful ancient church


Your special day, how you would want it to be: –
Arrive by horse and carriage, to the sound of the bells, prepare under the shelter of the lych gate, enter the church by the great west door, to the sound of the organ, in a church filled with your friends. Take photographs by the south porch and leave under garlands of flowers from the arched lych gate.


Having your wedding where the BBC have filmed wedding scenes in Daphne du Maurier’s My Cousin Rachel, and Winston Graham’s original BBC production of Poldark where Morwenna and Drake were married.


Your wedding day is limited only by your imagination.

Imagine arriving at the covered lych gate – for final adjustments – just in case it’s raining.
Imagine a wedding at this beautiful church in the spring with ransoms and bluebells
or perhaps gold celandines, primroses and daffodils and other wild flowers.
Imagine as you and your bridesmaids walk the length of the church, with your guests turned to great you
Imagine exchanging your wedding ring in front of your friends in one of Cornwall’s most beautiful ancient buildings with stunning vestments.
Imagine signing the register in St Bradonoc’s Chapel.
Imagine walking down the aisle after you are married in front all your guests
Imagine emerging from the church in a frenzy of rose petals
Leave for your wedding breakfast through the south lych gate, perhaps with guests holding garlands of flowers, perhaps to go to Boconnoc along the private drive opposite by horse and carriage?
To the sounds of our bells
