Barn Weddings in Devon

If you’re looking for a big barn wedding venue in Devon, with enough seating for up to 200, the lovely old barn at Ash Barton could be just the ticket. 

Our fairy-tale barn has been used for all kinds of Devon barn weddings: from formal sit down wedding breakfasts to more laid-back gatherings. What kind of barn wedding you choose to have is completely up to you.

Decorating the barn for your wedding

You can decorate the barn however you like. We’ve had bunting, balloons, pompoms and even umbrellas, as well as bright lights, fairy lights and candle light. Choose from round tables or trestle tables (they’re free to use) then decorate the tables to fit your barn wedding theme.

Hessian covered tables with flowers picked from our wildflower meadow and popped into jam jars always look pretty. Or go full glam with pink lights, feathers and disco balls.

Food and drink at your barn wedding

As well as the kitchen in the main house, the barn also has a large kitchen area with catering fridges and plenty of space to prepare something mouth-wateringly delicious.

You can go for something traditional like a three-course wedding breakfast. Or something much more informal like sharing platters, a barbecue or even a hog roast.  

Let’s get this barn wedding party started

And once the eating is over, it’s time for the partying to start. But just because it’s a barn wedding, don’t feel you have to have some kind of barn dance to celebrate. We’ve had 70s discos, rock and roll bands, and soul singers all perform at Ash Barton.

There’s a stage for a DJ or live band and plenty of dance floor space to strut your stuff. Plus, there’s a bar in the barn already set up. All you have to do is stock it.

What a fantastic time, we are so glad we chose to get married at Ash Barton! The house and barn looked amazing (with a little help from our friends!). Pete is a complete star, we are so grateful for all his hard work. Nothing was too much trouble and the children loved the animals and adored Millie! We have so many happy memories. Thank you.
