Wedding venues in Devon

Discover our pick of dreamy wedding destinations in Devon
Brickhouse Vineyard, wedding venues in Devon

Devon is awash with sublime spots to get hitched – on the coast and in the countryside. From manor houses and rustic barns to private beaches and wineries, the tough (but dreamy) part is whittling down which wedding destination could be the one. Let us help narrow down your options with our pick of wedding venues in Devon

Brickhouse Vineyard, Mamhead

Not far from the buzz of Exeter but nestled within miles of rolling hills, patchwork fields, wild woodland and fruitful vines, Brickhouse Vineyard is the ideal rural escape for couples who wish to be wed in a natural environment.

Brickhouse is a family-run wedding venue, with founders Joanna and Matt pouring in years of work to restore the Grade-II listed house, Threshing Barn, Round House and vineyard. Their hard-spent hours paid off as they and the team have created an idyllic spot to host exclusive-use weddings of any size – from micro elopements to large celebrations.

Naturally, the on-site boutique vineyard is a huge draw for couples that appreciate wine, and there’s something rather romantic about serving drops on your wedding day which have been created from grapes grown in the same place where you said ‘I do’.

Tunnels Beaches, Ilfracombe

Fancy exchanging vows against a stunning sea-view backdrop? This cliffside wedding destination in Ilfracombe, north Devon provides the perfect set-up for just that via its outdoor thatched gazebo that overlooks an epic vista of the big blue.

The contemporary venue is only accessible through a hand-carved tunnel embedded in the cliff and even has the wow-factor offering of its own private beach. Up to 120 day guests and 160 evening guests can join the celebrations and the Tunnels Beaches team have thought of every detail to make sure the wedding goes without a hitch: couples can get married inside the stylish venue if the weather takes a turn, catering is organised in-house and includes a gourmet barbecue (aka perfect beach food) and there is luxurious self-catered accommodation across several properties, turning the wedding day into a truly special weekend occasion.

Upton Barn

Upton Barn & Walled Garden, Cullompton

Dripping in rustic-chic décor and pastoral romanticism, Upton Barn’s enchanted walled garden, idyllic lake and renovated barns create aesthetically gorgeous and relaxed weddings that complement its countryside setting.

Whether couples choose to swap rings in The Walled Garden with its lavender-fringed aisle and views across the Blackdown Hills or opt for the elegant open-beamed Cider Barn, both spots offer a dreamy landscape for photographs of the special moment. Post-ceremony, there are more photographing opportunities across the 160-acre organic farm, plus family and friends can look forward to a feast in the light-filled Stable Barn and toasting tipples in The Press Bar.

New Scandi-inspired accommodation pods allow nearest-and-dearest guests to stay just a stone’s throw from the barns, with more stylish retreat spaces to be introduced this year.

Bovey Castle wedding

Bovey Castle, Dartmoor

Like something out of a fairytale, Bovey Castle’s neo-Elizabethan manor house and majestic estate is a dream-like destination for a wedding.

The historic venue is set within 275 acres of lush countryside on the edge of Dartmoor, with the couple and their loved ones able to enjoy exclusive use of the entire estate (including 60 bedrooms and 22 lodges) for the occasion. The official ceremony can take place either in Bovey’s Summerhouse (perfectly suited to outdoor weddings thanks to its manicured aisle adorned in fresh flowers) or in the grandeur of the castle itself. Ceremony aside, thrills for guests go far beyond the usual, and can include the likes of falconry displays, classic outdoor games and time in the high-spec Elan Spa complete with pool, gym, sauna and steam room.

From the wedding breakfast to the first dance, Bovey’s experienced wedding team help to ensure the smooth running of the day and bookings include a dedicated coordinator to create a tailored event that’s best reflective of the couple.

Deer Park

Deer Park, Buckerell

A wedding with sophisticated difference is to be found at Deer Park, which scooped Condé Nast Johansens Best Weddings Parties and Celebrations accolade in 2020, 2021 and 2023.

Deer Park’s 80-acre estate ensconces a gleaming-white country house which is impeccably styled to impress. A hand-carved fireplace, ornate wallpaper, plush furniture, vibrant potted plants and antique objets d’art create a striking backdrop for wedding celebrations, but nowhere could be quite as memorable on the big day as a ceremony in the verdant Georgian orangery with its views of mature Italian-style gardens.

Foodies will be well catered for as the refined menus highlight produce from the estate’s own gardens, featuring daily-picked fruit, herbs and vegetables. There are plenty of luxurious rooms for overnight guests in addition to a wedding suite par-excellence for the special couple, care of the thatched treehouse, which comes complete with log burner, roll-top tub and wrap-around balcony.
