The most spectacular day in every way
Almost a year ago Jon and I were on the hunt for our wedding venue. Coombe Trenchard was the first and only venue we looked at. Our decision was instantly made having driven down the drive and upon meeting Sarah our decision was cemented. A month ago we celebrated our big day, we had the most incredible time. We wanted a country house in Devon not too far away from where we live. Coombe Trenchard ticked all the boxes. It was the most unique and beautiful private venue which flows perfectly for each part of the day. The house, bridal suite, ceremony hall, the gardens, Italian terrace and coach house for the evening boogying, every element was a surprise for the guests! Sarah was incredible and suggested lots of highly recommend suppliers. I work in the organic food industry so it was key to me that we could use our own produce from the farm. Sarah suggested David from Garnish for the food and Sally from Thirst Choice for the bar, they were both truly exceptional and very flexible. Joanna Game from Viridis brought the marquee to life with her stunning arrangements of garden flowers and the marquee from Marldon Marquees to keep our heads dry. All the other suppliers we found ourselves but we highly recommend arranging appointments with Sarah’s carefully curated list. All of Sarah’s planning and experiences made the day run seamlessly. Sarah’s breakfasts and vintage tea party’s are exquisite, a lovely way treat the setup party. Sarah and Philip have the most outstanding venue. Family and friends were made so welcome throughout the day. It felt like home! Everyone has said it was the best wedding they had ever been to and they want to emulate it when they get married. We couldn’t recommend Sarah and Philip’s Coombe Trenchard enough. Thank you for making our special day one that we will NEVER forget. We will definitely become visitors of your yearly supper clubs and garden events. Love Anna & Jon x

The most stunning venue we could have ever hoped for! We loved every minute of our special day which was made even more amazing by the beautiful home and grounds of Coombe Trenchard. Thank you so much Sarah for opening up your home to us!! We hope to visit again soon :)!!

The most exquisite setting for our wedding day
Coombe Trenchard house and gardens were the most exquisite setting for our wedding day. Sarah and Philip so graciously and generously opened their home to us, not only for our special day itself, but on many instances throughout the wedding planning stages. It is a bespoke service like no other - nothing was too much trouble, and every single extra detail --whether it be Sarah's seasonal cutting garden flowers, homemade treats, or the use of pretty antique china and furniture-- set the scene perfectly, and helped create the intimate and cosy atmosphere my husband and I wanted to extend to all our guests that day. I must also add that Coombe Trenchard is dog-friendly, which was hugely important to us, and our beloved Border Collie was made to feel equally at home there. We chose to have an Edwardian-style wedding with plenty of botanical and vintage details, and every single space in Coombe Trenchard was an Arts & Crafts dream come true! From the minstrels' gallery, wood panelling and stunning fireplace in the Grand Hall, or the light and soft pastels of the Morning Room, to the romantic wisteria-covered Clock Tower, rustic Coach House, and sprawling formal gardens - it all has to be seen to be believed! And I can assure you, once you have seen Coombe Trenchard, you'll not consider any other venue - this stunning home will steal your heart, and Sarah & her fabulous team will guarantee you your Best Day Ever! Thank you again, Sarah & Philip (and also to Emily and Graham) for your kindness and dedication, and for being so passionate about everything that you do. We have magical memories to last us a lifetime, and I hope to see you all again soon. Rachel, Dale and Gypsy the collie x Coombe Trenchard Weddings

Thank you for making our day, the perfect day...
Where to begin... Our wedding planning started a year ago, and Coombe Trenchard was our first and only venue visit, we fell in love with it straight away! Then ever since putting the deposit down Sarah and Emily were always there with great advice and knowledge when it came to organising our wedding, nothing was ever too much to ask, and by the end they have become life long friends. All you have to do is look at a couple of photos of this place to get an idea of how beautiful it is. The house is charming inside and out with its excellent examples of Arts and Crafts Period features and it's sympathetic antique decor. There are beautifully decorated rooms for you and a couple of guests to stay in around the wedding day, which includes a tasty breakfast. Coombe also has (at least) 4 areas where you can choose to have your wedding ceremony, we had ours under the clock tower, however Coombe is a short walk away from the quaint Lewtrenchard Church. Not only this but the venue also boasts a large coach house, with a clear roof for dancing under the stars, a cosy fire lit lounge area for those tired guests. Then we come to the venues vast garden with its hidden walk ways, croquet lawn, small wood, stream and stunning Dartmoor scenery which surrounds it. It is breath taking come rain or shine. Finally I must mention the big day, which we had on the 12th of August 2017. It was even better than we could ever have imagined. And it could never have been so amazing if it wasn't for the beautiful Coombe Trenchard as it's setting, and for the guidance of Sarah and Emily right from the beginning. Thank you again for making our day, our perfect day !!! Charlotte & Alex Zalepa

We are so grateful to Sarah, Emily, Philip & team
We had our wedding at Coombe Trenchard on 22nd July 2017. Sarah + Team / Wedding Planning: We made our booking around 18 months prior to the big day itself. Throughout that time we made many visits to Coombe Trenchard to hone and plan all aspects of the day. Sarah was incredibly welcoming and helpful in our planning; I personally felt so reassured to know that she was ultimately responsible for the day. She was so conscientious, reliable, thorough and passionate about making everything perfect for us. The reassurance this affords you as a couple is priceless. House and gardens: Both are breathtaking! Our guests particularly loved the croquet lawn and the seating area on the Italian Terrace, on which we toasted marshmallows over the fire pits! The Coach House is perfectly formed, combining an area for dancing with comfy sofas and a log fire. Bridal suite: The room has been beautifully decorated, with a large bathroom. It was an incredibly relaxing place to wake up as husband and wife! Afternoon tea: We opted for afternoon tea as our 'wedding breakfast' freshly prepared / homemade by Sarah and her team. My wife and I love afternoon tea, and have tried the offerings of many fine venues including the Dorchester, Woburn Abbey, and Boughton House. We both agree that the afternoon tea we had on our wedding tea was the best. Everything homemade, exquisite flavourings and many varieties of sandwiches and cakes, delicious scones with jam and clotted cream, and special shortbread biscuits hanging on ribbons for the bride and groom. But aside from the flavours, the display of everything was breathtaking. Tea served in a collection vintage cups and saucers, tiered plates at every table and many beautiful flowers cut freshly from the gardens in decoration. We are so grateful to Sarah, Emily, Philip and team for allowing us to have our wedding at Coombe Trenchard, and for all they did for us. Coombe Trenchard Weddings
