Ash Barton Estate. Braunton. North Devon

Same Sex Weddings Venue, North Devon

It goes without saying that same sex weddings and civil partnership are welcome at Ash Barton. In fact, we’re well-known for being a gay-friendly venue. Which is why we’re one of the most sought-after same sex wedding venues in North Devon. 

So whether your wedding celebration involves two brides or two grooms, we’ll ensure you have a magical and memorable day.

The perfect venue for gay weddings in Devon

Where you actually hold your ceremony is completely up to you and your partner. And there are lots of wedding locations to choose from throughout the Ash Barton estate.

Want to have your ceremony outside? Our pretty courtyard with its old cobble stones is a magical place for a wedding ceremony and is always popular. Or maybe you’d prefer a same sex wedding in the old chapel with its twinkly fairy lights and heaps of atmosphere. How about under the oak tree overlooking the lake. Or in the middle of the meadow surrounded by wildflowers with one of the longest aisles in the country. And if you can’t decide which one of you is going to walk it, we think you both should.

The after party

You can have an intimate wedding ceremony followed by dinner for 30 in our main dining room. Or if you’re after something bigger, have up to 200 guests for a sit down wedding breakfast.

Then follow it up with a big party in the big party barn. Where else? With its disco balls and flashing lights, it’s your own personal nightclub. And anything goes from live rock bands to house DJs. Start the night off with some old school classics before going full raver round about midnight. There’s no curfew, so no closing time. You can party all night as far as we’re concerned.

Feel free to use your own suppliers for your same sex wedding. Or take a look at our list of recommended suppliers below.
