Ash Barton Estate. Braunton. North Devon

Marquee Wedding Venue in Devon

Whether you want a traditional white wedding under a traditional white tent, or something a bit more boho with a series of yurts, Ash Barton has all the space you need for the perfect marquee wedding in Devon - and an amazing backdrop to boot.

What kind of wedding marquee are you looking for?

The beautifully maintained lawns at Ash Barton are the ideal place to pitch your tent for a marquee wedding. And the great thing about marquees is they come in all shapes and sizes.

Enjoy an open-air wedding ceremony, then hire a traditional wedding marquee for a romantic, sit down wedding breakfast with fairy lights, festoon lighting or lanterns. Or maybe have a marquee with a quirkier feel. Flowers, bunting and an abundance of greenery all help to create an informal atmosphere. Opting for a winter wedding? Create a magical wonderland in your marquee with pretty lighting. And remember, wedding marquees can also be heated, so they can be used all year round.

Or hire a Chinese hat marquee or pagoda for an intimate wedding ceremony. Or maybe use it as a bar area. Or you may choose to have a wedding reception marquee for drinks and canapés as well as a sit down wedding breakfast. Then another marquee for the evening’s dancing and entertainment. Transparent marquees are always fun. It feels like you’re dancing under the stars and you don’t even have to go outside.

Or perhaps hire a stretch tent for something more contemporary. Fill it with big comfy cushions and furry throws for a relaxing chill out area for when everyone needs to fling their shoes off and take a break from all the partying.

We got married in the chapel and had a marquee on the lawn in front of the lake. Thank you to Simon for being ever so helpful, witty and a pleasure to work with.

We have all had a wonderful week. The weather hasn't been great but the pool and TV lounge made up for that. The students have loved it and we've all eaten far too much!
