Coco Collection… The Wedding Venues

Written by Emma Hla
It’s Saturday folks…

This can only mean one thing.

The Coco Collection.

Now it’s around this time each week I’ll be talking about the goings on in Coco HQ and of course showcasing a small sample of the beautiful venues we have on board.

Our Wedding Venue Directory is looking amazing (if I do say so myself) and you can see a little sneak peek here from earlier in the week, however we’re not quite ready to unveil until the end of November, so whilst you all sit anticipating the launch why not catch up on the weeks blog posts about our Coco Wedding Categories Coastal Cool and City Chic

Oh and please do feast your eyes on this little lot…


After a 12 year restoration project, Boconnoc House now has a heartbeat again, and let me tell you – it certainly makes mine beat that little bit faster.

The stunning house is set amongst a sweeping private parkland in Cornwall and I dare you not to get a little caught up in the romance of it all.

See for yourself…

Boconnoc House adores to be filled with laughter, music, love and imagination.

When you arrive, the lovely crew at Boconnoc hand you the keys and it can be your own haven for as long as you like.

This wedding venue encourages you to treat the house and its neighbouring enclave of guest cottages as a blank canvas on which to paint the special day you have always envisaged, be it a subtle elegant affair or a whacky one-off wedding.

There are four large reception rooms which can be used as you wish, or the team can suggest what works best, a private Church next to the house should you wish to have a traditional ceremony or for those after something a little more informal there is a Civil Ceremony room in the Stable Yard.

You and up to 36 guests can have a sleepover in the Main House and Cottages after the day’s festivities. There is even scope for having your very own campsite, or if glamping is more your cup of tea – yurts! I got a little bit over-excited at this. The fact Boconnoc can accommodate you and your wedding party helps to avoid those discussions of who will drive home! But it also means your nearest and dearest can be with you every step of the way on your important day.

The lawns in front of the house are an ideal spot for your drinks reception with views across the parkland and down to the lake in the valley. There is also the option of having a marquee attached to the house if you have a rather large guest list to accommodate.

Boconnoc House really is a haven for the Bride and Groom who have their own vision and ideas of how they wish their wedding day to be, creating something personal and a little bit magical.

Oh… and a date for the diaries folks! If you fancy visiting, Boconnoc is hosting an open day on 8th March 2014. 


I fell in love with the stunning RSA when I read about the epic couple that is Liv & Teddy over on Rock My Wedding.

They decided to throw one hell of a party at this beautiful London venue… And you can see why this was their chosen one…

Just look…

The RSA is a beautiful Georgian House designed by Robert Adam in the early 1770’s and has recently undergone a £3 million refurbishment project.

Home of enlightened thinking, the building has been the intellectual and social home for some of the greatest thinkers and social activists for the past 200 years!

The House has been redesigned to make every couple’s wedding as bespoke and stunning as you ever imagined.

The lovely Elise and her team offer personalised packages to hire the full House, the newly refurbished John Adam Street entrance, or the Vaults (the converted Georgian wine cellars).

This really is the perfect City Chic wedding venue – I want to dance the night away in those darkened vaults!
