Wedding gongs for Alverton


The Alverton hotel in Truro has won a prestigious accolade in the UK Wedding Awards just days after winning a top regional industry award.

In the national awards, the hotel was crowned overall winner in the Best City Venue category after beating off competition from across the country.

Truro’s only four-star hotel was up against places which host weddings in all UK cities. The Alverton was then shortlisted along with 11 other prestigious wedding venues including The Gherkin in London and Queens Hotel in Cheltenham.

The UK Wedding Awards, which are organised by prominent bridal brands including hitched, Perfect Wedding and You & Your Wedding publications, were judged by leading industry experts.

The panel shortlisted reader nominations and then sent undercover judges to each of the locations. As well as being city based, the criteria for the category was that all venues had to offer “excellent service and fabulous aesthetics inside and out”.

The national award comes just days after The Alverton was handed the top trophy for Wedding Venue Cornwall in the South West Wedding Awards.

The Alverton’s general manager, Paul Ricketts, said: “We are all absolutely thrilled with our recent award wins. The accolades are testament to the whole team’s commitment to creating the very best day for all of our bridal parties.”
