Exclusively Yours

Weddings at Tawstock

Devon Wedding Venue

What makes the perfect wedding venue?

Some of our couples dream of a picture-perfect wedding fit for the pages of a glossy magazine. Others want to dance bare foot around the firepit. At Tawstock Court, the choice is yours. Would you rather leave the major planning to us, so you can focus on those all important extras?

As historic wedding venues go, we think Tawstock Court is pretty special. We have all the charm, nooks and crannies and period features you’d expect from a Georgian manor house. (Your photographer will be spoilt for choice.) We have several different rooms available for weddings and we’ll happily show you around them all when you book a viewing.

Important Information

About Your Big Day

The Day Before
Wedding mornings are for drinking champagne rather than hanging bunting, so feel free to join us the afternoon before your wedding to decorate the venue in your chosen colours. Some of our packages include pre-wedding accommodation, meaning there’s no need to worry about booking a wedding car. (We find that brides often like to share their room with the chief bridesmaid and a bottle of fizz.)
Your Wedding Ceremony
Will you opt for the opulent Panelled Hall or the more intimate Study? Perhaps you fancy an outdoor wedding ceremony? With 32 acres of ancient Devon woodland and lush green spaces, Tawstock Court is ideal for garden weddings, and our Elizabethan Gatehouse certainly makes for a memorable location to exchange your vows. Many of our couples have their hearts set on a church-wedding – luckily the pretty St. Peter’s Church is just two minutes’ walk away. Once you’ve signed the register, join your friends and family on the lawn for a glass or two of bubbly.
Wedding Reception
You’ll be sitting down to eat in our light and bright Morning Room. ‘Do you want the chicken or the beef?’… At Tawstock Court, we believe you deserve rather more choice for your big day. So we’ll work with our chefs to give you the food you want, whether that’s a traditional wedding breakfast, vegetarian buffet or hog roast. We’re not precious though – if you’d rather book your own caterer, they’re welcome to make full use of our professional kitchen*. We’ve also got plenty of space outside if you want a fish & chip van or ice-cream kiosk. This is North Devon after all…
The Party
Once you’ve eaten your fill, you’ll move into the historic Old Refectory to dance the night away with your friends and family. We can share details of local bands, entertainers, musicians and DJs to make sure the night goes off with a bang. Tawstock Court is a licensed venue and the original country kitchen has been converted into a well-stocked bar. We have over X brands of gin, X different wines and plenty of other tipples to keep your guests happy.
The Morning After
Once you’ve recovered and slept off the night before. Meet with family and friends the morning after for a freshly cooked English Breakfast. The perfect way to round off your special weekend.
Exclusive Use
You’ll have the run of several rooms for the day*, so guests can escape to a comfy chair in a quiet corner if they like, or challenge each other to a table football match in the Games Room. Fancy being Lord and Lady of the manor for a day? Why not opt for exclusive use of Tawstock Court? If you all decide to start singing Abba’s greatest hits at 2am, at least you won’t wake anyone else up.
Family Friendly
We welcome children and have plenty of space to set up games and activities to keep them happy. We know that younger guests often struggle to sit still during speeches, so you’re free to transform one of the halls into a playroom if you wish*. In our experience, happy children equal happy parents, so just ask if you want to book a bouncy castle, magician, or other entertainment.

“I wish I could do my day all over again, I wouldn’t change a moment of it. I would highly recommend to anyone who wants a 5 star wedding or function in a five star venue with 5 star staff. Thank you all at Tawstock Court. x”

“As soon as we walked round the venue and met Laura and her team we knew we were going to have an amazing day. Nothing is too much trouble for Laura and you can see she truly loves what she’s doing. I would recommend Tawstock Court without hesitation- so much so that my sister in law is getting married there around Christmas time next year! Would rate them 10 stars if possible.”

No Hidden Extras

Your honeymoon suite is included in the cost of hiring Tawstock Hall and we won’t charge you extra for playing our games or using our cake slice. We’re a family-run business and we pride ourselves on transparent pricing.

There’s no getting away from the fact that planning a wedding can be a bit stressful at times. (Who knew there were so many words for off-white?) We want to take some of the burden off your shoulders if we can.

Laura Peryer will be the person you talk to about table settings, suppliers and all those little details that go into creating your perfect wedding. Together with her team, Laura will help to make your wedding day truly unique. Ready to get started planning your big day?
