10 Elopement Venues in Devon.

Elopement Weddings in Devon

Eloping to a wedding venue in Devon has been a consideration for many couples who would prefer something a lot more intimate or just don’t have the budget. Elopement weddings are also a lot more relevant at the moment during the coronavirus lock-down. We are now at the end of June 2020 and no weddings have occurred for quite a few months and couples are desperate to get married.

My enquires have increased for elopement weddings in Devon and couples are now postponing the main celebrations to a later date. The most important part for the couple is the vows and committing to each other. At a later date, when the restrictions have been lifted, they can then have anther day to celebrate with their wider friends and family.  Some are even having a blessing or opting for a humanist celebration so their family and friends can feel involved. For a list of popular wedding venues please look at my wedding venue resource: Devon Wedding Venues

Eloping to Devon to get married is a great idea as there are so many beautiful wedding venues that I’m sure will be happy to help. Elopement weddings are so special as the couple are just focused on the love and commitment to each other. You can also arrange with your photographer to visit a few local beauty spots you would like to go to for a few intimate couple portraits. This could be at the beautiful Devon beaches and dramatic coastline in North Devon or it could be on Dartmoor or Exmoor national parks. The choice is limitless!
