Wedding Ceremony Locations at Ash Barton Estate in Devon, UK

Where you get married at Ash Barton is completely up to you. You can have your civil wedding ceremony in the courtyard, in the old chapel or in the big barn. Or you can even have your ceremony under the oak tree overlooking the lake and surrounded by an abundance of wildflowers. All our wedding ceremony locations are fully licensed. 

If you choose a location for your wedding but want to change your mind at the last minute – you can. Unlike other wedding ceremony venues, we’re completely flexible. So if you love the North Devon scenery and want to get married outside, there’s no need to worry about the weather. If the heavens open ten minutes before the ceremony is due to begin, we can quickly move the wedding to another location that’s undercover. No problem.

Take a look at our list of recommended suppliers below.

Such a fantastic place to stay - our week was just brilliant, so much to do, and a beautiful setting. The house really does have everything you could want. Our chapel wedding at the start of the week was intimate and simple, and the grounds make a great backdrop for photos.
