Wedding Prices & Suppliers

Wedding Options & Prices at Pengelly Retreat:

We offer three beautiful ceremony options here:

Option 1: A celebrant-led exchange of vows in the grounds at Pengelly Retreat. Just pick the spot where you’d like to exchange your vows, we can arrange the rest for you. This isn’t a legally binding ceremony and so is more usually for vow renewals.

Option 2: A celebrant-led wedding ceremony where you exchange meaningful vows to one another after completing your Statutory Appointment to complete the legal paperwork with the registrars. The legal paperwork can be done either in Cornwall or at a registry office convenient to your home/work at any time before your celebrant-led wedding.

Option 3: You can combine a legal wedding ceremony in the sub-tropical garden at close-by Tremenheere Sculpture Garden, (just over 20 minutes by car) returning to Pengelly Retreat to enjoy a blissfully relaxed celebration meal and wedding evening together by the lake.


To help you with your planning have a look at our Tiny Wedding at Pengelly Retreat package below.  Please note, this package does not include Celebrant/Tremenheere’s fees or your Registrar’s fees – these must all be paid direct and you can see the indicative prices for these below.
