Best Coastal and Beach Wedding Venues in South Devon

Thinking about heading to the beach for your wedding? Let us introduce you to some of the best coastal and beach wedding venues in South 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!

South 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.

As with all field venues you will need to to have additional services such as toilets and generators, but Hatch Marquee Hire, can supply and oversee the installation of all equipment to ensure that you have a fully functional venue for your special day…this just leaves you to think about how to decorate!

Amazing Coastal Wedding Venues

Bantham Bash (Bantham, South Devon), Bigbury (Bigbury, South Devon), Carswell Farm (Holberton, Devon), Worswell Barton (Noss Mayo, South Devon)  coastal wedding venues are all field locations with amazing coastal views.  These sites give you a seascape 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
