Great Outdoor Weddings

Make the most of Devon’s spectacular scenery with an outdoor ceremony & reception

If you’ve always dreamed of an outdoor ceremony, surrounded by countryside and the most incredible views that go on for miles and miles, then the unique and breathtaking backdrop of the Tamar Valley will provide the perfect place for you to say ‘I do’.

There is something magical about our outdoor weddings; the stillness, the quiet and the view all combine to make these ceremonies some of the most special we do.

Your big entrance…

If making a grand entrance is one of your top requirements, then you’ll just love our long flight of 25 lavender edged steps, which lead down onto the lawn for your ceremony.  There’ll be plenty of time for you to take in the moment, and for your guests to appreciate your stunning dress.

Magical photo opportunities

Our view overlooking the Tamar Valley is often said to be a photographer’s dream, so no matter if your ceremony is outdoors or inside, you can be sure that your photographer will try to make the most of the light as it hits the valley in the early evening; the golden glow just before sunset makes for glorious romantic images.

Your space to enjoy

Having an outdoor wedding means that you’ll have a lot more space — the only thing you’ll need to decide is how you’d like to fill it! We’ve got plenty of ideas of what works well, from vintage games, to tug of war, archery and croquet.  So whether you’ve already got an idea in mind or you’re wanting a little inspiration from us, we’ll help ensure your day is perfect in your own unique way.

The legal bit…

Currently, an outdoor wedding isn’t the legal and binding bit here at The Horn, so immediately after your Ceremony, you would need to come back into the main house with your witnesses to sign the official register.  That gives you the opportunity to make another grand entrance back down onto the lawn area, where your guests will be waiting to shower you with confetti.

Don’t ever be put off by the weather

If you think that planning an outdoor wedding in the UK would lead to you stressing over the weather, don’t let it put you off!  We’ll jointly make the decision on whether to hold your ceremony outdoors or inside the day before your wedding; but no matter what the weather, we’ll always make sure your day is truly special.  With four rooms licenced for civil ceremonies, there’s still a choice  when it comes to where you say ‘I do’.
