Thinking about heading to the beach for your wedding? Let us introduce you to some fo the best beach wedding venues in Devon.

But firstly, what makes the beach the perfect venue for a wedding?  Well, it’s romantic (that has got to be a good start!), it offers an ever changing backdrop to your day, adds a sense of fun, can be dramatic, gives fabulous light for wedding photos and treats you to amazing sunsets as well.  The sea does what it does…adds a bit of magic!

Devon boasts some of the most stunning coves, beaches and dramatic coastal views and why not take advantage of this when you plan your wedding.  With a wealth of knowledge tucked up our sleeves, having provided Devon and Cornwall marquee hire for over 20 years, we are happy to share some very special Devon beach wedding locations with you and in our next blog we’ll let you know how to make sure your beach marquee also has the ‘wow’ factor.

You can’t have your wedding reception much closer to the beach without getting your feet wet!  At Blackpool Sands the marquee is situated right on the edge of the picturesque sandy cove, it is perfect for a beach styled theme full of bunting, lanterns and festival style flags, incorporating both elegance and some bright colourful fun!

Amazing Coastal Wedding Venues

Bantham Bash (South Devon), Bigbury (South Devon), Carswell Farm (Devon), Barnstaple (Devon) coastal wedding venues are all field locations with amazing coastal views.  These sites give you a sea scape panoramic backdrop which will mesmerise guests as celebrations head from day to night.  There is something really special about a field being host for a wedding celebration, maybe its because the whole venue has been build from scratch for that one day which adds to the atmosphere.

Another coastal wedding venue in Devon that we think is definitely worth a mention is Gurrow Point, situated on the Dittisham Peninsula, approximately 2 miles up stream from Dartmouth.  Not strictly coastal but we think that the panoramic views of the estuary make this a superb venue for a special occasion!
