Ash Barton Estate. Braunton. North Devon

Festival Wedding in Devon

If you love Glastonbury, camping, bunting, hog roasts, cupcakes, wearing wild flowers in your hair, or anything that’s a little unusual or on the quirky side, a festival wedding at Ash Barton could be right up your street. And think of all the amazing Instagram pics too.

What goes on at a festival style wedding?

Our festival weddings are definitely our most laid-back colourful celebrations. And, at Ash Barton, literally anything goes. In fact, the brighter the better.

The first question is: where to hold the ceremony? There are numerous places to get married at Ash Barton. And, naturally, an outdoor location would be perfect for a festival style wedding. Have your ceremony under the old oak tree overlooking the lake. It’s beautiful on a warm summer’s day.

Or get married in the pretty courtyard while your friends and family sit on hay bales covered in furry throws. Or how about a wedding in the wildflower meadow where you can enjoy a walk down one of the longest aisles in the country. Or go full festival and get married in a marquee on the Ash Barton lawn.

Festival wedding venue food and drink

After your festival style wedding ceremony, it’s time for festival food. Decorate our big party barn with bunting and flowers and have a sit down wedding breakfast with all the trimmings. Or have a picnic on the lawn. Or hire in a fish and chip van and enjoy a fish and chip supper. And while you’re at it, an ice cream van always goes down well.

Get your guests to glamp

Get your picture taken in a photo booth, have a rave in a tent, relax in a deckchair in the chill-out area, then finish the day off drinking hot chocolate and toasting marshmallows around the fire pit.

Then as the sun comes up and your guests are finally ready to call it a night, they can head off to the camping area to get their heads down. But unlike an actual festival, our camping area is right next to the posh loos and showers block, with bags of hot water and loo roll that never runs out. Bliss.

The best weekend of our lives. Comfy beds, powerful showers, well stocked fire, spacious kitchen with everything you need, welcoming lounge with ample room, sociable dining room., quaint courtyard, gorgeous chapel, huge barn with fun by the bucket load and great grounds to explore.
