When it comes to perfect wedding locations, Devon really has it all. The breathtaking countryside and coastline are highly sought after by many happy couples planning their big day from across the UK. When combined with the delicious food, amazing entertainment and incredible wedding venues, it’s a wonder why you’d look anywhere else. In this article, our very own professional Devon wedding photographer, Sarah Miller tells all about why you should get married in Devon.
It’s no surprise that the countryside and coastline are the top reason for choosing Devon as your wedding location. In all weather conditions, the rolling hills and rocky shores create the perfect backdrop for yours and your partner’s special day.
From a photographer’s perspective, Devon is a dream too. Every image we take will have hints of those stunning views and colours to give your wedding photos that added character. When you look back through your wedding albums, you will always be reminded of the idyllic setting of your magical day.
Devon is known for its food, and whether you’re serving up miniature Devon cream teas, local meats and fish or organic, fresh produce, you can be sure to wow your guests. There are also a huge number of local bakeries that create magnificent wedding cakes for couples on their special day. Of course, the cutting of the cake is one of those magical moments that you want to capture on camera and many of our clients adore re-living these memories when looking back on their photos.
You can find a couple of our favourite wedding caterers below:
Posh Nosh uses lots of lovely, local Devon produce in their delicious wedding menus. The team works with you to produce the perfect accompaniment for your special day, and can even create bespoke menus to suit you. Perfect for a more informal and relaxed wedding setting.
Another of our favourites is Dartmoor Kitchen. If you’re looking for a more fine-dining experience, then this is this choice for you. Each dish is immaculately presented and you can expect amazing flavour in every sustainably-sourced bite.
In keeping with the spectacular views of the surrounding area, Devon is full of wonderful wedding venues. There’s something to suit everyone – from regal stately homes and beautiful old churches, to quaint and quirky seaside venues. Many couples just opt to let the countryside do the talking and choose and garden wedding with a gazebo and lots of fairy lights. The venue you choose can add perfectly to the overall theme of your wedding and provides so many opportunities for your Devon wedding photographer to capture the charm of the site and the joy of the day.
We recently wrote a blog about one of our favourite venues, Muddifords Court Country House – be sure to take a look.
Whether you opt for live music from local musicians, a circus performer, dance routines, fireworks or one of our photo booths, the entertainment can add so much more to your reception. When perfectly captured by your photographer, the snapshots of your loved ones enjoying themselves are such lovely memories for you and your partner to keep and look back on.
