Retorrick Mill Wedding | Jonas & Jenna
Jenna and Jonas have the biggest smiles that are utterly contagious. They have THE MOST amount of fun together and their amazing Retorrick Mill wedding was absolutely everything that means the most to them. Family, fun, amazing food and a lot of great music to dance to.
Retorrick Mill is in Mawgan Porth, just outside of Newquay and it is easily one of the best venues for a laid back, do-it-your-way kind of day. Set in acres of green it has its own self catering cottages, a secret garden perfect for a humanist ceremony with a stream that runs through it. An eclectic barn for dancing in, a well stocked bar and the amazing Scott and Babs for incredible food. Fire pits, camping, farm animals. It’s something of a (not so) secret gem around here and it is legendary for its mini festivals, winter roasts on a Sunday and general all round hanging out at.
Jenna and Jonas wanted to bring their families and friends together in a laid back, music inspired, fun day that would give flavour and a nod to their Swedish and Cornish backgrounds. They own a bakery in town so food was hugely important to them. With a vintage van serving coffees and teas from the start and throughout their reception, to the incredible feast put on by Scott and Babs, one of the many reasons a Retorrick Mill Wedding or event through the year is a go to for locals. I think I literally heard the cake table creaking under the weight of all the cakes on offer.
Music played from start to finish and was a huge part of the day. With pre ceremony strings from Saffron Quartet that Jenna could hear from the little cottage onsite where she got ready and 1940’s crooner Andy Marshall providing ceremony music. Reception music also included the brilliant Windslide who regularly busk in Newquay and around Cornwall and really added to the chilled vibe of the day. Dancing in the evening was with Mowtown Pirates who were brilliant and then the surprise of all surprises. Information I was privy to in the lead up to the day but no one else. An ultimate beatbox finale, Duke. A surprise for all their guests who came on late into the night. Seriously, check these guys out. Duke bought an energy like I have never seen before and it was EPIC!
And so, here they are. Jenna and Jonas and their wedding at legend level. A beautiful humanist ceremony next to a stream amidst a secret bamboo garden. A walk into the woods for portraits and the mother of all epic parties.
FUN levels; Off the scale.
