A beautiful, elegant venue.
A beautiful, elegant venue. We were lucky enough to be the first to get married here seven years ago. Richard made sure every detail was perfect and was great at helping us organise the wedding from abroad. We can't wait to come back and visit Pengenna again soon!

We wish we could do it all over again!
Pengenna Manor was the first and only venue we looked at - and we had the most idyllic wedding day! As soon as we arrived and met Richard we knew it was the place for us. We loved it in the rain, we we knew we'd love it whatever the British weather threw at us (although we were lucky that we managed to have our ceremony outside as we'd planned). We booked Pengenna Manor for the weekend as we had friends and family travelling from across the UK and abroad to celebrate with us, so we wanted to make the most of it. Having the option for guests to camp in the meadow was brilliant, and we had a relaxed pre-wedding celebration on the Friday before the big day. Pengenna is a beautiful setting, and Richard was always so enthusiastic and reassuring. From advice on suppliers to the nitty gritty of getting the finer details sorted, he was there to help at every stage of the way. We wish we could do it all over again!

FAQ

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

We've had so many! The best weddings are always those that think about all the details and what could bring a real wow-factor (like having gospel singers during the drinks for example), and those that make full use of all the fabulous different areas that we created across our 20 acres of grounds. We particularly enjoy those who have guests camping and glamping for the whole weekend which gives the wedding a great party atmosphere over all three days and the camping meadows really come into their own when you add special touches like a camp fire area and even wood fired hot tubs!

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Ask your suppliers for their top tips, help and guidance! We all have so much experience and advice to give to ensure you have the perfect wedding weekend, and might suggest ideas you would have never thought of! Most of us work in the wedding industry because we are creative people.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

Ooh that's a tough question, but we love it when couples have live music during their ceremony, drinks reception and dinner, it's adds such a special touch and makes the day so festive.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Historic. Exclusive. Private. Flexible. Personal.

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

Either in front of our 800-year-old manor house surrounded by all that history, or down amongst the trees in the woodland walk that leads to the camping grounds at sunset with the festoon lightbulbs strung overhead.

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

Yes! We've had some celebrity chefs, super models, actors, footballers and TV presenters as guests in the past!

What’s your favourite canapé?

Richard would say a local Cornish scallop on black pudding with pea pureé. Beckie would say arancini balls of any kind!

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

It has to either be the good old Cornish pasty delivered hot from one of our local bakeries, OR delicious wood-fired pizza fresh from the oven.

What is your venue's most unique feature?

We would say the way we have created multiple character-filled spaces all as a blank canvas for you to use however you want. We really try not to have any rules and you tell us how you want your day to go - unless you need our advice of course!

What part of your business are you most proud of?

That we have helped over 90 couples have the wedding of their dreams in the last 7 years!
