Outdoor Wedding Venue, Devon
When the weather’s fine, there’s nothing quite as lovely as an outdoor wedding in Devon. And at Ash Barton, we have plenty of open air wedding locations to choose from.
You can get married in our pretty courtyard surrounded by friends and family sitting on hay bales covered in furry throws. Then perhaps follow it up with an open air wedding reception on the lawn with our stunning manor house as the backdrop.
Or you could get married under the oak tree overlooking the lake. Our antique pergola adds the finishing touch. Or how about a wildflower wedding in the middle of our meadow? It also means you get to walk down one the longest aisles in the country. Or take a look at our secret garden. It's tucked away behind the courtyard and is perfect for an intimate outdoor wedding ceremony. Get married under the lovely old arch, then walk through to the courtyard for drinks and canapes.
Or if you want an open air wedding ceremony in the evening, your guests can sit on the patio beside the firepit and watch you get married under the beautiful architecture of the west porch. Afterwards, have a sit down wedding breakfast in a marquee on the lawn or celebrate the night away in our big party barn.
And after your outdoor wedding ceremony, we recommend having your photographs taken against the spectacular North Devon scenery. The results are always stunning.
Let’s talk about the weather
So what happens if it starts to rain? Don’t worry. We know the UK's weather is unpredictable, even in the height of summer. We’re always on standby to move your outdoor wedding ceremony inside at the last minute, whether that’s into the big party barn, or the chapel or a marquee. There’s no way, we’d let a few spits and spots spoil your big day.
Feel free to use your own suppliers for your outdoor wedding or reception. Or take a look at our list of recommended suppliers below.
