Set on the breathtakingly beautiful Lizard Peninsula, Cornish Camels offers a magical location for civil weddings, naming ceremonies and special events.
The magnificent 250 acre 16th century Rosuick Organic Farm is home to three licensed venues: The Corn Chamber; The Wagon House and The Camel Centre, providing facilities for up to 200 guests indoors and unlimited guests outdoors.
We have been planning and hosting bespoke civil wedding ceremonies since 2009, and offer a range of wedding packages from simple ceremonies (from £450) all the way up to our “Just Bring the Dress” package.

Our cob and thatch Corn Chamber is over 500 years old. It was originally used for storing grain upstairs and straw downstairs over the winter months. It is now used as our farm museum and is licensed for civil ceremonies for up to 10 guests inside. It is also the perfect location for an outdoor ceremony and almost unlimited guests, with vows being exchanged on the steps.
The Wagon House is also around 500 years old. It was originally used as a farm equipment store. Recently renovated, the barn now accommodates up to 70 guests for the ceremony and/or the reception.
The Camel Centre is our largest venue. It provides a modern, light and spacious environment which can be set out exactly as you wish for both the ceremony and the reception. We can cater for up to 150 guests for a seated meal and up to 200 guests for an evening party. Our more quirky wedding guests can be viewed directly from this barn, as windows down one side of the building look directly into the camel shed.
"Kayleigh and Joe were married outside on the Cornish camels farm, surrounded by friends and family. The weather was spectacularly good! After the ceremony guests gathered on the lawns for Pimm's and nibbles and relaxed photographs of everybody mingling. We were joined by 6 adorable farm puppies which really got everybody excited-they were about 5 days old! I took Kayleigh and Joe off around the gardens for some candid shots of them together. The farm itself is home to lots of animals, including camels (as you may have guessed!). The guests fed the camels and posed for shots which bought no end of fun." (2015)
"Cornish Camels is a unique venue as there are a couple of different locations to the farm. Most of which were used for Lindsey & Gavin’s Cornish Camels Wedding. The wedding ceremony was held outdoors at the Corn Chamber, which dates back to the 15th Century... The light and colours were just incredible. Lindsey & Gavin then led their wedding party to the gardens of the farm's cottage where they were toasted with Prosecco & Gin, before heading to the Camel Centre for their Reception. The Camel Centre has a quirky twist to it with windows down one side of the building look directly into the camel shed." (2018)
"Oooooooooh, Bunting galore (made by the hen’s) Homemade chocolate cake (made by the farmers wife), Pre- wedding yoga (for the very chilled bride), Handmade dresses, A large teepee, A little bit of rain (which made it more fun) Camels (everywhere) and of course one very happy Rosie and Ian." (2012)

"For the ceremony we travelled to Cornish Camels down on the Lizard. It was a wonderful location to hold a wedding with peacocks meandering among the guests and camels & wombats in nearby enclosures. The sun shone throughout the ceremony and it was entertaining to watch the bride & groom disappear into the little hut to sign the register." (2013)
"Cornish Camels was the venue, Becca & Georgie the lovely couple, this is my second attempt of putting this blog up/out, due to unforeseen technical issues it had to be taken down, so it’s hard to re-create word for word, so bullet points:
* Fab wedding
* Great couple
* Awesome second shooting by Stuart Morton
* Unpredictable camels" (2017)
"[The photographers] all got stuck in and enjoyed capturing this laid back rustic vintage wedding. Camel rides, picturesque Cornish coves, big balloons, thatched roofs, bunting, and the thumb print tree where a few of my favourite things from this fine day. Lynn was in fact carrying a child in her belly during the whole day, talk about multi tasking, as was Suzi her make-up artist Big congrats to Suzi who just gave birth to a little girl." (2011)
"The day started at preparation with Jenni and the brides maids at the holiday home at Cornish camels with hair and make up for all, Even a local peacock decided to join us... The wedding reception at Cornish camels started with pimms in the gardens followed by a tea party with cakes galore, the Barn was looking great with bunting and flowers everywhere. After the speeches we made our way down to Kennack sands for a few special pictures of just Matt and Jenni." (2017)
"Sharron and Chris wanted their spring wedding day to be really laid-back and for guests to feel relaxed without the usual formalities of a wedding. Sharron also knew she wanted an outdoor ceremony, so started their planning finding a venue that would fit their requirements; Cornish Camels in Helston ticked all the boxes!" (2020)
