  • Devon Wedding Venues – Pickwell Manor

    Today I am  pleased to be able to feature a wedding venue that is a real hidden gem. What are you looking for in a wedding venue? A country manor? a beach setting? Something small and intimate? Well how about a place that has all three-the very fabulous Pickwell Manor. So rather than me tell you all about it, I will leave it to the those in the know to do a much better job….

    The bride and groom stand on the sun terrace of the Italian Garden at Pickwell Manor, gazing across the stunning countryside of North Devon to a glittering Atlantic Ocean only half a mile away. The bride thinks lovingly of her new husband, while the groom thinks lovingly of the cheeky surf he squeezed in that morning before getting married. Such is a wedding at Pickwell Manor!

     

    In the last few years Pickwell Manor has established itself as one of the UK’s most exclusive wedding venues and one of the most beautiful wedding venues in the South West. Set in six acres of gardens and grounds and located in an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, this privately-owned manor house dates back to the 10th Century and is mentioned in the Domesday Book of 1086.  It also includes a tennis court, games room, surf hut, and nine exquisite apartments.

     

    With the continuing trend of couples choosing to tie the knot abroad, Pickwell Manor’s unique combination of sun, sea and sand on its doorstep helps create a relaxed ‘holiday’ vibe for both happy couple and guests.

     

    After all, there are many other manor houses across the UK ready to host your dream day, but not many where you can wake up with a view of the ocean, stroll along miles of beautiful sandy beaches, and surf some the the UK’s best waves in the lead-up to the most important day of your life! Not forgetting the chance to reminisce the next day over a bacon butty with friends and family on the golden sands of Putsborough Beach.

     

    Pickwell Manor deliberately hosts just nine weddings a year so that its owners (and friends) Susannah Baker and Tracey Elliott can focus on making each one a unique and memorable experience. Each couple works in tandem with Susannah and Tracey to create and plan a wedding to suit them and reflect their personalities.

     After the initial booking couples are invited to spend two key planning days with the owners; the first at six months and the second one month before the day. Every detail is carefully considered to ensure a relaxed and hassle-free wedding day. It’s the kind of bespoke approach, truly putting the bride and groom’s wishes at the heart of the whole experience, that busier venues simply can’t provide.

     The venue is licensed to hold weddings or civil partnerships, in either the grand ballroom or outside in the rose arbour of the ancient Italian Garden, with its unspoilt views across open fields down to the ocean. The wedding breakfast itself is held in the stunning oak-panelled ballroom and can accommodate 80-100 seated guests, increasing to 150 for the evening reception. Pickwell Manor works with some of the region’s finest suppliers, and can offer couples the chance to design their own bespoke menu.

    The manor house can sleep 40 people across nine boutique apartments. So once the last dance has played, comfort and luxury is only ever a staircase away for the wedding party.

     

    Children are welcomed and cared for at Pickwell Manor, with special packages available to keep them busy and entertained during the wedding weekend. Parents themselves, the owners of Pickwell know that happy children at a wedding make for a happy bride and groom!

    Well I don’t know about you but I can feel a trip to the Devon coast coming! Thankyou to Pickwell Manor for telling us all about their fab venue. Would love to know what you think. Bye for now, Jenny.
