Pendennis Castle is an artillery fort constructed by Henry VIII near Falmouth in Cornwall, between 1540 and 1542, it is an ideal wedding venue if you want to take advantage of the fantastic views which will make your wedding photography look awesome.
It formed part of the King’s Device programme to protect against invasion from France and the Holy Roman Empire and defended the Carrick Roads waterway at the mouth of the River Fal.
It is one of a small group of artillery forts with a distinctive circular shape designed for 360° defence.
With its small garrison of gunners and soldiers, Pendennis Castle kept watch over the Fal estuary and the emerging port of Falmouth for over 400 years.
Pendennis Castle has many spectacular guns. Some can be seen in action on firing days. These include replica Tudor ‘sakers’ (named after a falcon), Edwardian quick-firing guns for fighting torpedo boats and Second World War coast, field and anti-aircraft guns.
As well as being a popular English heritage site, Pendennis Castle can be hired out for weddings and other events. If you are looking for an experienced Cornwall wedding photographer who has photographed at Pendennis Castle many times then please get in touch
