A Picture-Perfect Summer Wedding Venue for Indoor and Outdoor Weddings in Devon

We realise that you want your weekend wedding venue your way and a huge part of that is the wedding ceremony setting. Beaconside has both indoor and outdoor ceremony locations for you to choose from, allowing you to create the perfect ‘I do’ moment.

The grounds at Beaconside are the perfect backdrop for an afternoon drinks and canapés reception, as well as giving you a choice of picturesque photography backdrops.

Sit down in our purpose-built glass and oak wedding barn 'The Beacon' and throw open the bifold doors to merge the inside and outside spaces. It's already decorated with fairy light wrapped beams and a beautiful statement chandelier. We encourage our couples to add their own decorations and ideas to make the space uniquely theirs.

For those wanting to get married with rolling hills as the backdrop, you may want to use the Sundial. Your ceremony will be underneath our oak pagoda whilst your guests are seated on the lawn with a stunning panoramic view.

For those who prefer an indoor option, our Glass House, decorated with candelabras, a draped arch and white aisle carpet, is the perfect place to make the most of the countryside views from the comfort of the indoors!

Twilght wedding

From the first email, to the day after the wedding, Sarah was nothing but outstanding. No matter how many questions we asked, nothing was too much trouble to sort out. We fell in love with the idea of a twilight winter wedding and the venue was just perfect for this. The Christmas lights, to the Christmas trees, the whole estate looked so magical and Sarah really did go the extra mile for us. The maintenance staff were so helpful and the waiting staff were so lovely. It was the most wholesome and magical weekend, and we cannot thank Beaconside enough. We are forever grateful to have such amazing memories with our loved ones. Kind regards Gabrielle & Benjamin

Our friends and family are still talking about it now and how wonderful the venue was! We cannot thank you enough for everything you did to make the whole day go smoothly and we will always be so grateful to be able to get married at Beaconside. The whole weekend was incredible from start to finish and we could not have wished for anything more. Beaconside will always hold such a special place in our hearts! Thank you so much again Cara and Lewis x

Above and Beyond!

Dear Faye, As Cat's Mum i just wanted to thank you whole heartedly for the wonderful weekend you made for their special day Its was incredible and everyone has raved about it ever since. You and all the team were marvelous and couldn't have been more helpful. The food was delicious and plentiful. The venue was absolutely stunning and beautiful and all tho the actual wedding day was extremely windy it didnt matter as it was actually lovely to spend the saturday inside such a beautiful place. Also the Friday allowed us to enjoy the evening outside with the Pizza cart and the Sunday too with the pool side BBQ. Faye you went over and above to help us in every way. You dealt with our couple of disasters very efficiently and compassionately. First was when i hit my head under the bathroom cupboard in the Lodge and then the singer/guitiarist breaking down. You even managed to delay the ceremony by half an hour and altho she didnt arrive in time for walking down aisle she was there to play and sing just after. That would not have happened without you help. I cannot thank all at Beaconside for making it the best weekend ever and all family and friends had the most fabulous time too. Basically i can't praise you enough and the team and Beaconside is absolutely the perfect wedding venue. Thank you for making a special day for our families totally unforgettable.. Warmest regards Jane Goodenough

Hi Faye We just wanted to drop you through a quick note to say THANK YOU. Everything from Friday to Monday was just magical. I don’t know what I thought a wedding would feel like but I can tell you that it was quite literally the best day/weekend of our lives! Wish we could do it every weekend with you!! I cried when we left as I will always love Beaconside forever more and cherish all of the memories, love and laughter that was had at the venue all weekend. You made everything seem so easy and effortlessly put together but I know you worked your socks off to make it feel like that for us. PThank you and the team again, from the bottom of our hearts you made the most magical day of our lives just that, MAGICAL! Lots of Love The Harmans xxx

I don't know where to begin!

Hi Faye, I don't quite know where to start! I'm still totally overwhelmed after the most wonderful weekend. From the moment we got to Beaconside on Friday, the whole weekend was beyond all expectations. The build up had been a bit stressful with all the last minute changes due to Covid and there was a moment beforehand when I was worried we weren't going to have our day the way we wanted it. You were so calm and reassuring and so understanding when we changed things yet again! You genuinely made us feel like you wanted the best for us and that our wedding was as special to you and the Beaconside team as it was to us. Beaconside is the most beautiful venue, it will always have a special place in my heart. Me and Damion spent all weekend pinching ourselves about how lucky we were to be spending the weekend with all our family and friends in the most amazing place. We are already talking about when we can get back there for a weekend. I was expecting the Friday to be spent rushing around to get the venue ready, but you and your team were so helpful. Nothing we asked was too much trouble and you made the whole evening so easy and stress free. The same can be said about the actual wedding day. You have this amazing ability to ensure everything runs so smoothly but you do it unnoticed! I was so unaware of what you were doing, all these things just magically happened and then you would just pop up when I needed you, normally with a glass of Prosecco! The same is true for the rest of the Beaconside team, you were all amazing. It was lovely to meet Kris after all the emails and the food was just so delicious. We then bumped in to Ali who again had been magically floating around sorting out all the little details and it was so lovely to chat to her. It was like you were all just more members of our family and friends, you made it so personal. Thank you so much for caring about our day as much as you did. There is not one single thing I would change. We both had face ache from smiling all weekend and our guests have had nothing but high praise for you all and for the venue. We honestly can't thank you all enough. Claire and Damion xx

Absolutely incredible!

Wow, what can we say about Beaconside House, I’d start with absolutely incredible, we have just arrived home from our weekend stay for our wedding, it was everything that we wished for and more. We fell in love with it on our first viewing, we knew we wanted a wedding that we could stay with our families all weekend, it ticked the boxes and the fact it was absolutely beautiful was a bonus. The staff, service, and food from the amazing Kris and team was faultless. Each and everyone of our guests have complimented the same. Daisy was amazing throughout, she was warm friendly, inviting and went out of her way to help us along the way, when we had to move the date many times due to illness and the pandemic she would put us at ease and help us find our way back to what we wanted, to be married, she always helped us reignite our excitement when we were disappointed. We are over the moon we are finally married, at what’s become our happy place, Beaconside will forever be in our hearts. Thank you to you all, we will be forever grateful, lots of love Carly and Dave xxx

Perfection in every way!

Hi Sarah Beaconside, from the moment I booked our wedding until the last drink was poured it was perfection in every way. I cannot recommend a beaconside wedding enough! When your planning your special day you have an image in your head of how the day will go and how everything will look and I can honestly say that my wedding at Beaconside exceeded my already very high expectations. The Beaconside team were so amazing and nothing was too much to ask . Everyone had the best day and it will be a day that I treasure for the rest of my life . The accommodation was just perfect and meant that the party could start on the Friday before our wedding and carry on until Sunday, family and friends were all together having so much fun Thankyou Beaconside for making our dream wedding come true x

Sarah & Stuart

Amazing from Start to Finish!

Where to start!!!! Just to let you know that Alana and Matt's wedding weekend was ABSOLUTELY SUPERB. It was all amazing from start to finish. This is a fabulous venue. Stunning views and beautiful Wedding room and Glass house. We knew it would be fantastic but it exceeded our expectations. My husband and I did not get to meet Daisy the Wedding Planner but Alana and Matt said she was wonderful. I have had so many of our family and friend saying this was one of the best weddings ever. It was so lovely to have from the Friday to Monday. We were lucky with the weather so Sunday was great and the kids loved the pool. I will definitely be recommending Beaconside and it was well worth the journey. Thanks to all who was involved behind the scenes in making my daughter and son in law's wedding SO PERFECT.

Belinda & Alan

Beaconside Feels like home to us!

We want to extend a huge thank you to Daisy, Mark, Ali, Vicky and the rest of the team at Beaconside. You helped us organise the wedding of our dreams and the whole day ran so smoothly; it was truly perfect.

Nikki and Simon

It's a very special place that creates beautiful memories...

We got married at Beaconside House and it was without doubt the most beautiful, serene, relaxed and friendly environment you could wish for. The staff are angels (including Fred) and the venue exceeds anything I have ever experienced. I cannot thank any of the team more or recommend Beaconside enough. I am totally in love with Beaconside now, it's a very special place that creates beautiful memories so easily.
