Magical Devon Twilight Weddings

Relaxing & Romantic

Have you ever dreamed of a relaxed and romantic twilight wedding package? Our unique Devon wedding venue nestled within the rugged North Devon coastline offers the perfect backdrop for a twilight wedding.

At Ocean Kave there is no such thing as a traditional wedding, your big day is as unique and personal as you both desire it to be. A twilight wedding is a wedding which starts after 5:30pm, skips the wedding breakfast and flows straight into the reception.  It is also a great option for our ceremony only wedding package and a fantastic option for couples on a budget looking for more affordable weddings.  Our Ocean Kave ceremony only package has been created  for couples who wish to have a beautiful exclusive and romantic ceremony with us before moving to a venue that can accommodate a larger guest list for the evening celebrations.

There is something seriously enchanting and romantic about a breath-taking ocean sunset. As we are spoilt for sunsets here at Ocean Kave, depending on the time of year, our wedding team will advise you of the sunset in your preferred month, we can work with you both to plan a beautiful twilight wedding around the sunset and help you to select a sensational photographer who knows every hidden space within the ground and the beach to get the best sunset shots.  Our sundowner cocktails and canapes are a very popular option for twilight wedding drinks receptions.

You may prefer to say “I do” with a candle lit ceremony under the veil of the midnight sky, if so let us know and will be able to help you source the best suppliers who are able to come out to the venue later in the evening. Twilight weddings are so romantic and enchanting, we have even had a couple graced with a shooting star before, that truly was a magical moment.

In 2019 we hosted the first mid night wedding ceremony in Devon, this was a momentous occasion, and it was great to be leading the way for North Devon twilight weddings.

We don’t care how big or small an Ocean Kave wedding is; it is our couple’s special moment and whether it is a micro wedding for up to 30 people  or our Intimate couples’ only elopement wedding for two, we will do everything in our power to make it a day (or night) that will be treasured for a lifetime.

We were delighted that our Devon Country Superintendent Registrar Trish Harrogate was able to personally oversee the wedding,  she said : “So, that was a first for us – a MIDNIGHT wedding at the stunning Ocean Kave in Westward Ho!  A lovely couple and their gorgeous little boy wanting it to be just about them. It was a lovely evening and the Kave looked so romantic with candles galore. The venue was idyllic in silence of the night with just the sounds of the waves below.  We are happy to facilitate ceremonies at any time of the day or night here in Devon – make your ceremony about you and dare to be a bit different!!  Call Devon Registration Service on 0345 155 1002 to discuss your requirements.”

If you are considering a romantic gift to mark your special starry skies wedding celebration, there are some great websites who offer personalised prints to show the night sky and constellations on a given night in a specific location, we will be delighted to share our coordinates with you.
