Small Weddings and Elopements at Pengelly Retreat.

A unique Cornish wedding venue in a magical paradise of gardens and lakes

Your wedding, elopement or vow renewal at Pengelly Retreat will be completely magical and totally unique to you.  As soon as you walk through the gates of Pengelly Retreat you’ll feel the heartbeat of this secret garden, nestled into the countryside between north and south coasts of Cornwall.  This lakeside hideaway is just 20 minutes from St Ives and 15 minutes from the surf beaches at Gwithian and Praa Sands, but it feels like it’s own little piece of Cornish paradise for your ceremony.  The sounds of running water, bird song and nature’s tranquillity are all around.

Our Wedding Co-ordinator, Phoebe from Piccolo Weddings, will be on hand to help you with all the arrangements from confirming your booking, all the way through to ensuring all runs smoothly on the day itself.  So you can simply, relax and enjoy your special wedding celebrations.

An array of places to hold your celebrant-led ceremony

Pengelly Retreat offer a dazzling selection of beautiful and unique places to hold your celebrant-led wedding ceremony or vow renewal.  The choice is very much yours and individual to each couple.

You may want to wed on the bamboo bridge in the jungle garden, with water below you and lush foliage all around.  Deeper into the gardens you’ll find tranquil pools and picturesque bridges, a secret garden with ponds and statues, grassy meadows and woodland.  A stretch tent can be set up by the wild swimming lake for your small wedding.  Or for the more intimate ceremony how about the deck of the Boat House cabin which extends over the lake itself?  If you prefer to be indoors for your ceremony and reception meal, then the intimate Boat House log cabin can used for elopements or a stretch tent can be hired by our Wedding Co-ordinator for small wedding parties of up to 30.

The gardens here really lend themselves for a romantic picnic celebration after your ceremony and our Wedding Co-ordinator, can recommend the best caterers to suit all tastes and budgets.  If you prefer to be seated for your meal then rustic boho tables under the romantic canvas of a stretch tent can be hired in and decorated in a gorgeous style to your liking.

Whichever peaceful place you choose for your celebrant-led ceremony, you can be assured of privacy and tranquillity for your wonderfully relaxed wedding surrounded by water and nature.

Accommodation at Pengelly Retreat

For small elopements or vow renewals with up to 12 attending the ceremony, you have exclusive use of the two lakeside houses at Pengelly Retreat, the architect-designed Boat House log cabin and the luxurious Sail House yurt.  Each lakeside house sleeps 2 and our elopement packages include 3 nights of accommodation for up to 4 adults plus babies in arms.  These beautiful quirky houses each overlook a wild swimming lake, in a tranquil and natural setting of meadows and trees.  The bridal couple can of course take their pick of whichever romantic lakeside house is the one for them!

For small weddings or vow renewals with up to 24 attending the ceremony, the whole of Pengelly Retreat is available for hire with exclusive use of the entire site including accommodation for up to 12.  Our small wedding packages include 3 nights of accommodation comprising the two lakeside houses, each sleeping 2, plus the four-bedroom Mill House, a spacious and traditional Cornish granite house sleeping up to 8.  This makes a truly unique and wonderful holiday stay for all your closest family and/or friends with time to spend together both before and after the ceremony.  The Mill House has a large family kitchen and spacious conservatory perfect for gathering together with your friends and family to celebrate your special occasion.  While the lakeside houses offer a peaceful escape and place to just be together as a couple, sharing a glass of champagne under the stars or cosying up by your log burner. For your other guests attending the ceremony, our Wedding Co-ordinator will be able to recommend accommodation options close by as well as transport if required.
