We know that 2020 was not the best year for people hoping to be wed. For many couples, years’ worth of planning and saving have culminated in disappointment, postponement, and many tears. However, it doesn’t have to be that way! While, of course, full restrictions have to be adhered to, if Boris says “yes”, then so do we!
As a small, family-run business in Devon, we have been able to accommodate the changing regulations surrounding gathering sizes, social distances and events. So, if your wedding is dropping from 100 guests to 30, 10 or even 2, that’s fine by us. We will help you to recreate your dream day in line with whatever regulations are in place at the time. We have lots of great local North Devon wedding suppliers, which means that we can help you to source whatever you need, from flowers to local produce, cake to makeup and hair.
After a beautiful wedding with a backdrop of the Atlantic Ocean, our Rustic Barn is a stunning, versatile area that allows a small group to maintain social distance with ease, without feeling too formal or cavernous. For two and four-legged guests love the barn, with its dog-friendly layout and human-friendly array of artisan gins and local ales. Unlike a hotel the great thing about Ocean Kave is that you and your guests are the only people you will see at your wedding. - the only wedding gate-crashes will be the odd rabbit, roe deer or badger.
We know that you may have dreamt of a big wedding in North Devon, but if it is a choice between saying “I do” this year or waiting another year or even two, then it may just pay to compromise. What’s more, with the competitively priced small, intimate wedding packages on offer, you will be able to save money for your future together.
At just £4,500 for you and up to 13 guests – as well as your four-legged friends-, you can enjoy two nights in a bridal cottage, a luxury, locally sourced breakfast hamper for two and use of Ocean Kave for your ceremony and the Rustic Barn for your wedding breakfast. And, of course, the package comes complete with signature styling and your own professional wedding planning service to help you navigate the ever-changing restrictions that may come your way!
We have also teamed up with three talented Devon wedding photographers who offer exclusive discounts for couples making the most of this year with our micro wedding package, Gareth Williams or GRW Photography, Jon Malyn from Indigo Perspective and Marc Collins from MK Collins photography.
2020 may have thrown grapes at us this year. But we will help you to turn those sour grapes into delicious sparkling wine! We will help you with every element of your day. We can help to arrange for you to make your own wedding rings with the talented Bob at Lazy Dog Studios in Instow or organise an exclusive video package with Chris Catullo from North Summit Wedding Films.
We know that we are a little bit biased when we say that our little corner of the world in the South West is the best place in Devon for a most magical rustic wedding. However, with our versatility and can-do attitude, in the current times, we are even more sure that nobody is able to offer a more personalised, flexible service than us, and we are proud that we have continued to help people to have a day that they will cherish for the rest of their lives – even if it was a little bit different to the one they dreamt of!
