There is always something a little bit special about a wedding venue that is born out of true love. And that is exactly what Upton Barn along with its lovely walled garden have on offer for Brides and Grooms who want to tie the knot in Devon.
Originally the kitchen garden of the adjoining farm, but left to grow wild, the owners of this lovely little place decided to renovate the cider barn and refresh the garden so that they themselves could get married and now they invite other brides and groom to do the same.
It is quite unique that the place you hire for your wedding is loved so much by the people that run it actually created it so they could marry there! A beautiful spot and a blank canvas is offered for weddings at this relaxed Devon space.
Upton Barn is a flexible space with a civil ceremony licence so you can say your vows there or is in close proximity to a number of churches in the area and can be used just for the wedding breakfast and evening ceremony. There is an Oak Arbour, a Cider Barn and The Press along with all the space in the walled garden making this the perfect place to have a mix of indoor and outdoor spaces and is perfectly flexible to accommodate any weather.
Whether your wedding is an intimate affair with only a few guests or a large party of up to 200 there are romantic places, picture perfect backdrops and a relaxing environment for everybody in the wedding party and guests.
As experienced Devon Caterers we love catering a wedding at the Upton Barn, take a look at the recent events page on our website for the latest Upton Barn weddings. Recently we catered for a traditional afternoon tea with our own freshly baked scones and in the evening we served delicious pulled pork with fresh rolls and accompaniments.
Other ideas for catering at the Upton Barn can include taking inspiration from the cider barn itself – perhaps you could consider a cider tasting table, apple based canape’s or for a different type of dessert apple pie and ice cream in the summer or apple crumble and custard in the winter.
Because a wedding the Upton barn will play very heavily into using their beautiful walled garden take inspiration from the flowers and serve pretty salads including edible flowers or use rose and lavender as scents through the complete menu. As there is a lot of outdoor space BBQ style service or Hog Roasts are always popular, the onsite fire pits can let you pop your own corn or roast marshmallows under the Devon sky.
As the barn and walled garden are flexible open spaces that can be customised to any theme or dream idea for your wedding when you talk to us about your wedding catering we can match our expertise to your theme and budget to create a menu you will love and that reflects your requirements to perfection.
