Small wedding package now available
Intimate weddings for up to 15 guests
Your wedding at Moreton House
We are delighted to announce that we are now able to offer dates for the exclusive use of the house and gardens for weddings from 2021. Weekend and midweek slots available.
With a choice of four elegant function rooms, landscaped tree-lined gardens and luxurious accommodation that can be separated into one and two bedroom suites for single household groups, we offer a venue that would suit the most intimate of elopements, Covid-secure ceremonies for up to 15 guests, or, when restrictions are lifted, weddings for up to 70 guests seated for the ceremony and dinner and up to 100 for an evening party.
Welcome to Moreton House, a newly renovated Georgian stately home on the outskirts of Bideford near the beautiful north Devon coast. Our elegant function rooms, landscaped gardens and luxurious accommodation wing our now available to provide the perfect backdrop for your wedding.
As our venue is newly open for weddings, we have availability at short notice, and are offering small covid-secure weddings with the option of all-inclusive packages available for couples who are tired of waiting for the rules to change.
If your dream is still for something bigger, we can offer ceremony and dining space for up to 70 guests during the day, and up to 100 for the evening. We have luxurious accommodation in 7 beautiful bedrooms, arranged between 4 self-catering apartments, and plenty of photogenic spaces for the bridal party, groomsmen and close family to get ready, and mingle before and after the event.
Our venue offers a number of different function rooms, so there's no need to move furniture around as you progress through the different stages of your day. Check in to your sumptuous accommodation suites the day before, and enjoy full access to your venue, allowing you time to set up each room in advance. On the morning of your big day you'll be free to enjoy a leisurely breakfast, a dip in the roll-top bath and plenty of time for photos of the final preparations with close family and friends. There's space to bring your hairdresser and make-up artist and to dress and get ready separately from your intended if you prefer.
We have just successfully completed our licencing inspection by the Devon Registration Service, so we will shortly be able to offer full civil ceremonies as well as celebrant-led services in several different locations around the house and grounds. Perhaps choose our Portico as the focus for an outdoors ceremony framed by our grand entrance, or something smaller by the fireplace in our Hall. More casual spots can be found in our veranda or gazebo in the secret garden or formal elegance in our club room and, coming soon, our large Robert Adam-style ballroom. Please contact us for a fact sheet about organizing different styles of marriage ceremony at Moreton House.
After the ceremony, enjoy a glass of bubbly served from our club room bar, then you and your guests will have free run of the gardens and ground floor of the house to capture those special memories.
Our newly restored Grand Dining Room provides an elegant space for your wedding breakfast. We offer flexible menu packages with local caterers, using the finest local ingredients. From casual hog roasts, pizza ovens or grazing tables to full sit down three-course meals where you can offer your guests a choice and cater for all dietary requirements. Drinks packages or bar services available.
Or opt for complete flexibility and arrange your own catering service and bring your own drinks. We can provide space for prep and plating, and next year plan to have our full kitchen renovation completed.
Without having to clear up the ceremony room and dining room you can still move on and continue your celebrations using our Club Room - with leather club seating, library, bar and billiards table - and our Morning Room, with another bar and dance floor. Enjoy a first dance, either with live musicians on the balcony above the stairs, DJ in the bay window, or use our state of the art built in Sonos sound system. Evening functions can be extended to roughly 100 guests, once restrictions have ended.
Although you won't need to drive to or from your accommodation, we can recommend car hire - classic or quirky - for a fabulous photo shoot to a nearby beach or clifftop beauty spot or local landmark.
At the end of your evening, around 15 of your guests can stay in our luxurious accommodation. We offer seven bedroom suites, all newly renovated with a cosy and characterful feel, and all modern comforts, separated within 4 self-catering apartments. You can prepare your own breakfasts or offer a catered group meal. For current restrictions, our four apartments can be treated as four separate households, or post-restrictions the spaces can be opened up and used together. Built around a communal courtyard with firepit and BBQ, the accommodation is perfect for extending the wedding weekend to make the most of time with your new family.
