Are you looking for an outdoor setting for your summer wedding that exudes romance and style? Are you struggling to find a beautiful outdoor wedding venue where you’re part of the natural landscape, whatever the weather..? If so, Ever After – A Dartmoor Wedding could be just what you’re looking for… Ever After is set in 46 acres of landscaped gardens and woodlands in the Devonshire countryside.
Have your ceremony in the open open-sided oak and stone barn, linger with your guests over champagne and canapés on the extensive lawns and raised deck, (maybe organise a croquet tournament) enjoy a spectacular wedding breakfast with family and friends under glass-roofed outdoor rooms with a solid floor bespoke marquee where everyone can feel part of the landscape.
In the evening enjoy the gardens lit with fairy lights and candles, stay warm and dry if it rains and if it doesn’t, dance under the stars to the band or DJ of your choice.
The free minibus service brings your guests to the venue and returns them to their accommodation at the end of the evening. The venue’s caterers provide locally sourced, naturally produced, fine dining, updated according to the season. Download the menu suggestions (which you can change as you wish) from the Ever After website.

What the couple can expect
Everything is organised – the only thing you have to do is book the registrar, because they’re not allowed to do that for you.
Up to 8 guests can be invited to your ceremony for an additional charge with champagne and canapés all round.
If you want to invite your guests to join you for a meal, they can arrange that too!
Ever After are offering exclusively to their booked couples the luxury of their very own pop-up evening lounges.
How about post-dinner whisky & cigars in an art deco inspired club lounge? Or maybe some artisan botanicals in an opulent gin & champagne lounge fitted out with old style Hollywood glamour? These two brand new pop up lounges are exclusive to this venue, you can’t get them anywhere else!
Each lounge comes with its own 4.5 m square white canopy with roll down sides in case it gets chilly. If the weather is dry the lounges will be set up on the lawns whilst guests are having their wedding breakfast. If the weather is wet the lounges will pop up inside the marquee during the change-over period after your wedding breakfast.
The lounges can be hired together or separately, but there’s a handy discount for hiring both.
