Ash Barton Estate. Braunton. North Devon

Chapel Wedding Venue, North Devon

If you’re looking for a romantic wedding venue in Devon with a chapel, for that traditional wedding experience, look no further. Our old stone chapel in the grounds of the Ash Barton Estate is an absolute charmer.

With its original stone walls and twinkling fairy lights, weddings in our little chapel often feel like a scene from a weepy romantic movie. Almost certainly, there will be a tear or two shed on the day.

Your chapel wedding ceremony

If you want to get married in the old chapel, there’s room to seat up to 100 of your closest friends and family for the ceremony. And feel free to decorate our chapel how you like, so it fits in with the theme of your wedding. Pretty wildflowers, candles, bunting and ribbons are always popular choices.

Once the ceremony is over, head over to our big party barn for a sit down wedding breakfast followed by dancing until dawn. Or maybe you’d prefer a marquee on the Ash Barton lawn.

Enjoy a sit down celebration in the chapel

You don’t have to have your wedding ceremony in the old chapel of course. There are numerous wedding ceremony locations all over the Ash Barton estate where you can get married. The cobbled courtyard, or the wildflower meadow are lovely spots to have a wedding during the warmer months. Then follow this up with a sit down wedding breakfast in the old chapel. It seats up to 50, so it’s the ideal location for an intimate celebration.

The old chapel is cool and comfortable in the summer and warm and cosy during the winter months, which means it can be used all year round. There aren’t many Devon wedding venues with a chapel as beautiful as Ash Barton. Which is why it gets booked up so quickly.

Oh! I wish we lived at Ash Barton! We had such an amazing wedding there and are very grateful to Simon and Liam for making our weekend amazing. Everyone loved how beautiful yet relaxed the venue is. The location is stunning. The house is incredible. The chapel is gorgeous. Wish we could do it all over again!

Cool and comfortable in the summer and warm and cosy in the colder months, the old chapel is a lovely location for your wedding ceremony, wedding breakfast, drinks party or celebratory dinner.  

Virtual Tour

I have very much enjoyed our stay here. The house and its facilities were outstanding and catered for all 27 of us! There wasn't a moment of boredom. Very sad to leave. Thank you again.
