Wedding Venues in Devon

If you are looking at this page it means you have got engaged and have decided to get married here in Devon. Congratulations! Devon is such a wonderful county to get married in. The trouble is Devon is a big county with many beautiful venues. I don’t envy the fact you have to narrow it down but hopefully by collating a number of wedding venues in one place it will help you decide. I have also written a guide on engagement/pre-wedding shoots. Please follow: Devon pre-wedding shoot

It’s great you have decided to come to Devon to get married but finding the right venue is a big task. There are many factors you will need to consider and narrow down before the search can really begin. You will need to know if you want to hire a venue that will host your wedding and reception, if you want the venue to provide rooms for your guests or if there is accommodation near by. You will also need to make sure you hire a venue that is big enough and comfortable enough to fit all your guests. Do you want a venue that allows you to put you own stamp on it? You may be looking for the opposite and seeking a venue that does everything for you so you don’t need to worry about anything and just leave it to the venues wedding planner.

Most venues offer a mixture of DIY and a wedding planning service. If you are looking for complete control there are a few venues across the county that offer that too. I hope you find this wedding guide useful. With each venue mentioned I have included the seating capacity and accommodation, as well as the venue website, address and contact details.  Good luck in finding the right wedding venue for you. There are many and I have just mentioned a few. I have covered venues from Mid, East, Central and a few down South.  North Devon also have some beautiful venues and has its own page. You can check it out here: Wedding Venues North Devon

You will also a registrar, if that’s the root you are taking. Devon Registration Service website lists the various registry offices in Devon and approved licensed wedding venues.
