Autumn Wedding Inspiration

The Great Barn Devon is a beautiful venue to get married in any time of the year. But autumn brings with it such decadence and rich beauty, as the leaves on the ivy turn to a deep red and the garden releases its hold on summer. With 120 acres of countryside to take advantage of, this truly is a stunning time to make memories.

Building A New Gazebo For Outdoor Weddings

So that our brides can get married in the garden we are building a beautiful gazebo. We’ve used oak which has been cut from our woodland. The roof will be made from individual shingles from larch, sourced from a timber yard in the Teign Valley. Next step is to have it licensed and then we are good to go. The plan is for our brides to make their entrance through the little arched gate in our courtyard and walk the length of the lawn….on a fine summer’s day what could be more perfect!
