What might our intimate wedding at The Manor look like?

On the afternoon of arrival from 3pm

A wonderful way to start your wedding weekend is to enjoy the pool/sauna and hot tub spa and book some treatments in the beautiful on-site spa. This could be just for your bridal party, or you may wish to extend this opportunity to your whole group. A welcome meal can be arranged with Li for everyone to enjoy on that first evening. This could be anything from a formal sit-down meal at your accommodation or just simply pre-delivered dishes to be heated up whenever needed. The local pub, The Clovelly Inn is within walking distance, and provides fabulous pub food and local beers. It is a popular pub and we can pre-book for you to avoid disappointment.

 

Your wedding day  

The paved piazza provides a perfect place for your outdoor wedding ceremony and celebration, surrounded by the cottages. Or perhaps you’ll find a spot in the woods to exchange your vows? The Piazza is a sunny, warm spot and convenient for all your guests to gather around. The bridal suite at the cottage is a perfect place to get ready for your big day. You could even have your wedding ceremony on the glass balcony overlooking the piazza, creating a real “wow” moment and fantastic photography opportunities. We will help you with all the decorations, flowers and anything you would like to suit your tastes and preferences. 

We know in Devon that the weather is not always kind and we will always have other plans in case at a raining day, a gazebo over the piazza, or the ceremony can take place inside the cottage.  There is also an indoor dining area should the weather not permit outdoor dining. After the ceremony, why not enjoy post-ceremony canapés and a couple of glasses of Pimm’s, fizz for you and your guests?

The grounds and garden are for your exclusive use, and family and guests can stay at our 4 luxurious cottages for up to 18 people.

Li’s Kitchen on the site will provide you with a bespoke wedding banquet menu with authentic flavours from East Asia to make your big day more unique and memorable. Alternatively, you can see a list of recommended local catering companies here.

In the evening music can be played in the courtyard or your cottages and you and your guests can enjoy dancing and partying. You can also use the dinning terrace, which has fabulous view to the forest, a BBQ or buffet can be served during the party. Imagine enjoying your first dance before the party starts in either of these stunning areas.
