Today I want to carry on sharing with you some of my favourite wedding venues in Devon and the South West. Often these are venues which we looked at ourselves when we looked for a venue for our own wedding. Each venue we looked at was often somewhere I already new and adored but wanted my partner Ant to see to get his reaction as quite frankly I would never have been able to pick! The wedding venue Dartmoor I want to share with you today is no exception.
Ever After Dartmoor http://lowergrenofen.co.uk/ , in Lower Grenofen, is one of the first venues which I visited when I first moved down to Devon and was one of the first venues I put on my own shortlist to go and see. The owner Nicola is just lovely and one of the main draws of getting married at Ever After would be to have Nicola in charge of your wedding … she really covers everything with you and is incredibly organised!
Ever After is a beautiful secluded little venue just south of Tavistock on the edge of Dartmoor and feels like you are in your own gorgeous riverside ‘glen’ for the duration of your wedding. The riverside walk is one of the highlights and would make for some beautiful photos and couple shots for your photographer. The feeling at Ever After is beautiful and serene but also with a definite modern edge. The modern marquee set up and the gardens are laid out in a way that would easily suit any wedding scheme.
One of the big draws for me which almost swung out decision was the amazing honeymoon cottage which is also used by the bride and party to get ready the night before the wedding. Incredibly stylishly decorated it has a gorgeous kitchen and lounge area plus a huge dressing area with mirrors perfect for getting ready the morning of the wedding, and the most stunning bedroom with a balcony looking out over the gardens.
The other great thing on offer is the range of styling items and furniture which is available to you as part of the package … Nicola has everything from candles and lanterns, different styles of chairs … all the way through to vintage carts which would be perfect for a dessert table. The venue is also beautifully lit and is a really magical space once the sun has gone down for your evening reception.
They also work with a fantastic prefered caterer who has an amazing reputation in Devon and the local area so one of the big draws to booking a wedding at Ever After would be the amazing food options … perfect if you are a bit of foodie like me.
So, although it didn’t end up being the perfect venue for us … mainly because we decided we wanted something that reflected our love of historic houses … Ever After really is a very special venue as should definitely be considered if you are looking for a wedding venue Dartmoor or the South West.
