Divine weddings in the Heart of Devon
Your special day should be romantic, indulgent and unforgettable.
There is no question about it, Bridwell is a stunning location for a truly magnificent wedding! Located in the heart of Devon, this charming country house estate is exclusively yours from the moment you arrive.
At Bridwell you will discover a peaceful retreat, where your every desire may be fulfilled. Yours to use as if it were your own – nothing will be too much trouble, and nowhere will be out of bounds.
A Spectacular Flexible Setting
The estate has a choice of inspiring locations for civil marriage and civil partnership ceremonies, marriage blessings, wedding receptions, parties as well as humanist weddings – you really will be spoilt for choice!
Within the house you have the option of holding your civil ceremony in the grand front entrance overlooking the lawn and lake or alternatively, there is the oval hallway; the morning room; drawing room; library; dining room; conservatory and even the dramatic, sweeping main hall staircase!
The enchanting early 19th-century Gothic-style chapel, with breathtaking views over the surrounding parkland, is the perfect romantic fairy-tale setting for your wedding day. The building was originally constructed as a museum in the style of a chapel and has consequently never been consecrated, making it ideal for civil ceremonies. The chapel also makes an exceptional venue for a drinks reception for up to 100 guests, or a wedding breakfast for 60.
A light and spacious location for your civil ceremony: this delightful building with French doors opening on to the gardens is approached under a long pergola, fragrantly scented with wisteria and honeysuckle in the flowering season.
A charming collection of unspoilt space – the setting at Bridwell fulfils a most wonderful opportunity to capture a lifetime of memories…
Indulge yourself in the stunning Lord Ivar or Lady Ivar suites within the main house. These principal bedroom suites are furnished with four poster beds, fine linens, roll top baths and hand painted porcelain. Adjoining light and airy dressing rooms provide a peaceful haven to relax, retreat and prepare for your special day.
In addition to the Lord Ivar and Lady Ivar suite, 8 further enchanting bedrooms await your guests in the main house, and 8 additional bedrooms in The Old Stables for larger numbers of guests and extended family.
The ‘Old Stables’ are a wonderful ‘phase 2’ of our venue development which completed in the summer of 2016, increasing our residential capacity to accommodate a superb 40 guests!
And on the fringes of the estate you will Old Bridwell, a charming collection of unique cottages available to rent.
Luxe glamping is also a distinct possibility within the park in superior ‘glamping’ tents – and we are fortunate to have a superb partnership with Native Outdoors and the Pop Up Hotel, both leading companies in total and utter no holds barred luxury when it comes to camping!
And should you require more, rest assured there is an excellent quality collection of local hotels or guest houses nearby.
