Here to Help

From the moment you contact us about your wedding the key thing we do is listen. We know that organizing is a very busy time and that’s why in the lead up to the big day, we’re always available to offer help and advice based on our knowledge of successful weddings we’ve already held. On the day we’ll take the strain and pay attention to all the little details. So you can relax and enjoy yourself knowing that everything is in hand.

Meeting Your Needs

Amélies can be hired for the whole or part of the day and we offer two spaces, the Old Smokehouse and the Terrace, which can be hired together or separately. See Your venue for more information. We also offer catering for weddings outside the restaurant – see Picnics and Your menu for more details.

Truly Special

Our main restaurant, the Old Smokehouse. is licensed for civil ceremonies through Helston registry office. So whether you’re becoming Mr & Mrs, Mr & Mr or Mrs & Mrs, you can say ‘I do’ at Amélies.


The fishing boats bobbing out in Porthleven harbour provide a charming and unique Cornish backdrop to your vows. Our high ceilinged venue is flooded with light from the floor to ceiling windows of the main entrance. Restaurant décor is neutral to make it easy to match any colour scheme you choose.


Amélies will seat up to 80 people for your ceremony (and we can even fit in a few more if they’re happy to stand).Tie the knot and then hold your wedding breakfast and evening reception with us and save the hassle of two venues, two sets of decorations, transporting your guests, and more. After the ceremony, enjoy a glass of champagne with your loved ones on our terrace whilst we set up the restaurant for your meal and evening reception. Find out more about the venue

Nestled right on the harbour’s edge in the small and picturesque Cornish village of Porthleven, there really is no place like Amélies.From the minute you walk through our glass doors you’ll have a feeling of being somewhere quite unique. Our two rooms are The Old Smokehouse (which is licensed for ceremonies) and the Terrace. You can either hire them separately or together for your wedding.

Something Old

Originally a smokehouse and then a fisherman’s loft, we haven’t forgotten the roots of the building. Our wood-fired oven imported from Italy, allows us to cook things slightly differently.

Something New

We’ve recently refurbished the whole venue and the new neutral colours were deliberately chosen with weddings in mind. So whatever your colour scheme, it’ll fit right in. As the sun sets the tea lights are lit, and the restaurant is transformed from an airy space into an intimate, romantic haven.

Something Borrowed

Incorporating your wishes, big or small, is the Amélies way. We want your day to be just the way you imagine it. Tap into our knowledge from previous weddings and of local suppliers. And let us help you get hitched, without a hitch.

Something Blue

There’s something very special about the sea. Our terrace is deliberately simple in its décor. Because with such a gorgeous view, who needs distractions? Inside the main building the huge glass doors radiate light and your wedding party will be seated to take full advantage of our superb location. We’re only a five-minute walk from Porthleven beach, too. Let the sea lap at your toes and capture some stunning memories (and photographs!)
