Your Special Day

Celebrant-led Tiny Weddings & Elopements – Your Special Day at Pengelly Retreat.

Pengelly Retreat offers a complete tiny wedding package delivered by our experienced Wedding Co-ordinator, Phoebe, and a team of the best Cornwall-based suppliers with a Wedding Celebrant of your choice.  Everything is put together with tender care, love and a dash of magic to ensure that your celebration here is all that the two of you dreamed of.

A Secret Garden Hideaway

Pengelly Retreat is 5 acres of private gardens, lakes and meadows tucked between Cornwall’s north and south coasts.  These secret gardens are a magical hideway to escape to with your loved one.

Beautiful wild swimming lakes

The stream fed lakes here are ideal for wild swimming or a romantic boat ride just for two.  Hold your celebrant-led ceremony by the lake, in our idllic streamside bluebell grove or on a bridge over a tranquil pool.  Then wander hand in hand through the gardens for photographs among the jungle gardens, bamboo bridges and lakes.

Perfect for waterside picnics

Celebrate together with a romantic lakeside picnic on a cosy blanket, barefoot and carefree. Take a seat at a beautifully designed boho-chic table setting in the gardens for a delicious meal.  Or head to one of the nearby beaches on north or south coast of Cornwall to toast each other amongst the dunes, with the ocean as your backdrop.

A romantic lakeside retreat for two

Relax together in our lakeside log cabin or luxury yurt, complete with romantic log burner, plush double bed and stunning lake views.  Order in a meal or head to a luxury restaurant of your choice at nearby Porthleven or St Ives.  Then return to your bolt hole to star gaze together and wake to a glorious sunrise over the lake.
