Places to Get Married in North Devon

There are some truly memorable places to get married in North Devon. But we think Ash Barton is probably the most spectacular - and the most versatile. In fact, there are so many places to have your wedding ceremony on this vast and beautiful estate, the difficulty will be choosing which wedding venue to have.

Open air weddings

On balmy summer days, open air weddings are always fun.

During the warmer months a wildflower wedding is a popular choice and our wildflower meadow has to be one of the prettiest and most fragrant places to get married in North Devon. In fact, our wildflower meadow aisle is one of the longest aisles in the country at 145m, and certainly the most beautiful.

Or you could always have a marquee wedding, right here on the lawns of Ash Barton. Choose a traditional marquee with a sit-down meal. Or for something a little more boho and relaxed, you can hire a series of yurts. Take a look at our list of suppliers for marquee hire. 

For something completely different again, our cobblestone courtyard with its twinkly fairly lights, is one of the loveliest places to get married on the estate. For the ceremony, have your guests sit on benches or hay bales covered in furry throws.

Or explore our secret garden. Tucked away behind the courtyard, it’s the perfect location for an intimate outdoor wedding ceremony under the lovely old arch.

Chapel weddings

If you want to get married in North Devon and you want a chapel wedding, our old stone chapel, which looks stunning at night with when it’s covered in candles, is always impressive. It’s cosy and intimate during the winter months and cool and comfortable during the summer.

Barn wedding venue

But if you’re looking for a barn wedding venue in North Devon, we have just the place. Our lovely big barn seats up to 200. So you can have your wedding ceremony, followed by a wedding breakfast, then party the night away, all under one roof. And there’s no curfew either. So if you want to celebrate all night long you can. It’s probably one of the most unique places to get married in Devon. It’s certainly the most fun.

For a list of recommended wedding suppliers, please see below.

We had our Wedding at Ash Barton in April and we couldn't have asked for more! It was perfect and exactly what we wanted. It was amazing having all of our close family and friends under one roof and have the relaxed wedding weekend that we had planned. Everyone else loved it too.

Great place for our annual get-together. Perfect for all the kids - they loved the barn! This was the perfect venue and thanks to fab weather, managed to get some surfing in too! Can't wait until next year!
