Devon Winter Weddings at Ash Barton

Winter weddings in Devon are becoming increasing popular. There’s something truly magical about getting married when there’s a smattering of snow on the ground, a crisp bite in the air and lots of flickering candles everywhere. And who doesn’t love a glass of celebratory mulled wine at this time of the year? 

Ash Barton looks beautiful all year round. But during the winter months it transforms into a breathtaking winter wonderland, and the house and surrounding meadows provide a spectacular backdrop to your winter wedding photographs.

Where to hold your winter wedding ceremony

So where will you have your winter wedding? There are numerous places to have your ceremony at Ash Barton - both inside and outside. You can get married in our lovely old chapel, which is a gloriously romantic location for a winter wedding, and did we mention it’s fully heated too? Or perhaps you’d prefer to have your wedding in the main house surrounded by festive floral decorations and the smell of winter spices wafting through the house.

Or if you want to brave the great outdoors, you and your guests can wrap up warmly, walk on down to the meadow and have your wedding under the oak tree. Then head back to our heated big party barn for a full-on celebration. 

The day after your wedding celebrations, you can enjoy a winter walk through our 25 acres of woodland, fields and gardens. Or wrap yourself in cozy, furry throws and toast marshmallows round the fire pit. Or just snuggle up in our deep, comfy sofas, in front of a wood burning stove, and sip on hot chocolate. Or maybe enjoy another mulled wine or two.

However you want to celebrate the occasion, Ash Barton is the perfect location for a winter wedding in Devon. And you could always combine your wedding celebrations with Christmas and New Year too.
