Beautiful wedding venues in Devon and Cornwall
Chances are you’re reading this because you just got engaged, and now you’re looking at planning your wedding and choosing the most important aspect of it, the venue! There are stunning venues across the United Kingdom, but in this article, I’m going to focus on those that are local to myself as a Devon, Cornwall, and Plymouth Wedding Photographer. And some you may not know about.
Your wedding venue is where you will be married, and where all your friends and family will be to celebrate with you. It’s also more than likely the place all your wedding photography will be taken at, other than the church or registry office.
I cant plan your wedding for you, but i can find you truly beautiful wedding venues in Devon and wedding venues in Cornwall to host your wedding.
1. Trevenna Barns

Every season at Trevenna brings new reasons to celebrate and the venue is surrounded by beautiful Cornish countryside views; the perfect hide-away location to enjoy your wedding celebrations.
2. The Great Barn
The Great Barn is aptly named because at 23 metres long and 7 metres wide, it is in essence, one breathtakingly beautiful enormous space. The scale means that pretty much everything happens in a single sociable place.
Seating over 160 guests at round tables and around 190 guests at trestles, there are very few wedding venues in Devon which have this kind of capacity without having to go the huge trouble and expense of putting up a marquee. It also means your party will never be split, everyone will be in the same space from the start to the end of your day.
