Weddings in Truro can work two ways in my opinion, use Truro for the service and ceremony or solely use Truro city for the service and then use the surrounding area for your reception venue. Truro city itself has a fair size registry office and a few churches, the most prominent being the centrally located Truro Cathedral, which with truro cobbled streets can create some logistical issues on busy days, however it is an impressive building, recently undergoing restoration work on the exterior. One of the larger manor style venues in Truro is Alverton Manor with other styles of venues on the outskirts including Rostegue and The Rosevine.
In terms of location within Cornwall, Truro is located like Madrid in Spain, almost dead centre, although not for the same reasons, Truro is built around the river Truro, however further down stream the river splits into River Kenwyn and the River Allen, both names used for buildings in the well known and respected Truro College. All the rivers lead to the Channel and the atlantic which made Truro an ideally spot for international trade of shipping. The centre of Truro, and the end of the large part of the river is occupied by lemon Quay, away from which lead many other well known Cornish street names with cobbled streets.
“Truro grew up as a tin and copper expiring port on the navigable Truro River, and prospered from becoming a Stannary town in the 18th century. Now Cornwall’s cathedral city and administrative centre, the city is famous for its Georgian architecture exemplified by Boscawen Street, Strangways Terrace, Walsingham Place and Lemon Street (the finest Georgian Street in Cornwall), Buildings of note are the former Assembly Rooms of 1772 on High Cross and the granite City Hall built in the Italian style. Boat trips to Falmouth from Town Quay (or Malpas when the tide is low).” – AZ
