Romantic Boho Wedding Inspiration

To celebrate the launch of Pengelly Retreat as a small weddings and elopements venue in Cornwall, Piccolo Weddings styled a very romantic elopement photoshoot. These luscious shots showcase just some of the options: an intimate ceremony on a bridge over a jungle pool, a celebratory wedding picnic on the lakeside deck of the log cabin and a romantic boat trip on the wild swimming lake. A dreamy option for free spirits seeking a unique runaway wedding!

Hideaway Wedding Venue in Cornwall

Pengelly Retreat is an ideal wedding venue for elopements or tiny weddings of up to 12 guests. Our elopement packages include the hire of both lakeside houses, The Sail House yurt and The Boat House log cabin (sleeping 2 adults each). And the private 5 acres of land here in a tranquil area of Cornish countryside feel a world away from the crowds. However our central location in the heart of Cornwall means we are just 15 minutes’ from stunning beaches on both north and south coasts and 25 minutes’ from pretty St Ives.

Small Wedding and Elopements for 2-24 in Cornwall

When government regulations are relaxed once more, we can also host ceremonies of up to 24 guests, with accommodation for up to 12. The gardens and meadows are perfect for a wedding reception picnic. Or if you prefer, we can set up a gorgeous wedding table by the lake for your reception meal – and hire in stretch tent if required. We love how Phoebe from Piccolo Weddings styled this rustic-chic wedding table using herbs in terracotta pots. Beautiful boho wedding inspiration!
