As the only five-star hotel and country estate in the county, Bovey Castle is an unrivalled location for a Devon wedding within a moorland setting. Whether you're planning a lavish party for 150 guests, or an intimate affair for four, the elegant architecture, landscaped gardens and vibrant atmosphere of this country home from the last century, make Bovey Castle an extraordinary wedding venue.
From the imposing splendour of the oak-panelled Cathedral Room, with its vaulting ceiling and striking fireplace, to the sophisticated décor of the Adam Room, dominated by its luminous chandelier, find inspiration for a stately or discreet celebration in one of our wedding rooms. Your first meal together as husband and wife has to be unforgettable; choose from an elegant and seasonal wedding breakfast menu created by head chef Marc Hardiman, while working on the design of your cake at every planning stage with the Bovey Castle wedding cake service.
Create enduring memories of your wedding day with activities to entertain and enthral. The happy couple can enjoy a private sloe-gin-making session in the cosy Long Barn, labelling their bottle with the date of their wedding day, then return on their first wedding anniversary to sample its contents. For fairytale romance on the day itself, the groom can arrange with Bovey Castle's falconer for the rings to be delivered by Archimedes, a white-faced Schops owl, who swoops down the aisle and lands on the glove of either the best man or page boy.
