Full Description
Upton Barn & Walled Garden is an award winning exclusive use wedding venue nestled amidst the beautiful Devon countryside. Providing not one but three unique spaces all under one roof, allowing your wedding party to flow seamlessly from one to the other, and licensed for indoor and outdoor civil ceremonies giving you the freedom to design your wedding day to suit you. The Walled Garden was formerly the Victorian farm kitchen garden and has been reimagined to become the perfect setting for outdoor wedding ceremonies. With manicured lawns and footpaths leading through fragrant flower beds to the beautiful hand-crafted oak arbour that is licensed for civil ceremonies. The lovingly restored Cider Barn is a blend of traditional and contemporary architecture with exposed roof trusses, polished concrete floor and a full height, glazed gable end which bathes the venue in natural light bringing the outside in. This stunning feature provides breath-taking views over the walled garden and Blackdown Hills and an idyllic spot for indoor wedding ceremonies. The Press is a chic and stylish bar which complements the Cider Barn and flows beautifully into the walled garden. It is a laid back, social space where your guests can relax with old and new friends on the built in, modular soft seating or mingle over drinks and canapes in front of the wood burning stove. As you step into The Stable Barn you find yet another warm and inviting venue. Architecturally inspired with elegant lighting, warm timber interiors, well-stocked bar and captivating views across the paddocks; perfect for your wedding breakfast. Upton offers every couple the exclusivity and flexibility to design and create a day entirely unique to you. Our dedicated and passionate team will work with you throughout the planning process and on the day to ensure every detail is considered and executed, allowing you the freedom to relax and enjoy your wedding.

More than I could have dreamed of!
After looking at several wedding venues, we knew we were going to get married at Upton barn from the second we walked through the gates into the walled garden, the music was playing and an outdoor ceremony was set up for us to see, it was just stunning!! The Upton team are amazing at what they do and go above and beyond. It is so personal to meet Claire and Richard on your first visit and hear their story about how Upton barn became a wedding venue. The planning meetings with the girls from the Upton team (Emma and Phoebe) were brilliant, they planned the order of the day for us in detail, it was a stress free process. Everything we set up as we imagined on the wedding day, right down to the final details of table arrangements and decorations for the card table. Emma and phoebe were with us all day and guiding us every step of the way, even keeping a few of the best men in line too! We cannot thank Upton enough for the most rememerable day of our lives (so far ??) I would thoroughly recommend Upton to anyone who is looking for a wedding venue in the future!

We would highly recommend this beautiful venue!
Thank you so much for everything you did in preparation for our wedding as well as on the day itself! From the moment we walked into the walled garden in April 2017 I (the bride) got goose bumps, we looked at each other and we knew we wanted to get married at Upton Barn and Walled Garden! From that moment on every member of the team were so friendly and did anything they could to help with planning every little detail! Although the weather meant we couldn't be married in the walled garden as we had planned, the barns were made even more beautiful with our personal touches giving an intimate feel to the day! The whole day went so smoothly and we had the chilled and relaxed atmosphere we wanted! We have had some really lovely feedback from our friends and family too! They have said how stunning the venue was and how amazing the staff were, for example with empty glasses being picked up as soon as they were put down. The little things we didn't even notice! We had the most perfect day and fell in love with Upton Barn even more on our wedding day! We would highly recommend this beautiful venue!

Absolute perfection
We got married on 8th September 2018. We were lucky enough to get married outside in the beautiful gardens however given the hit and miss weather, we had inside as a back up plan. The great thing about Upton is there is enough space to make the venue work given any weather. Emma, Pippa and the rest of the team absolutely made our day and were completely faultless. The pre-work was amazing and our day went without any dramas or hitches. It's an absolutely beautiful place inside and out with wonderful staff to match. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this venue whatsoever. Everything was perfection !

Upton Barn is more than a wedding venue...
Upton Barn is more than a wedding venue, it feels like it was built with love just for you. We knew we would book Upton as soon as we walked through the entrance to the secret walled garden! The balance between modern beauty is perfect and can be used as a blank canvas to suit whatever style you want at your wedding. Even though the weather wasn't great on our day, the indoor facilities are so stunning we didn't feel like we were missing out. The staff were great throughout the whole process and the added addition of the 'tack room' was a great touch and nice to relax and chill with friends/family when required! We have so many great memories of Upton Barn and can't wait to come back and visit again!

The Best Day Ever!
From the moment we walked into Upton Barn to view as a potential wedding venue we fell in love and knew it was the perfect place for us, we booked it there and then. The setting is just beautiful and the team made us feel so relaxed and welcome. They go above and beyond to help and support you on the lead up to your wedding, with the vendors directory, recommended suppliers and regular email check-ins and planning meetings. We felt so looked after and totally relaxed. Our wedding day was everything we could have hoped for and more! The day ran so smoothly and our wonderful wedding co-ordinators Natalie and Rosie did a fantastic job. We felt so special and all our guests said how amazing and relaxed everything was. We cannot recommend Upton enough. If you are looking for a stunning, versatile venue with as much support and guidance offered as part of the package then look no further. Upton is a truly magical place and it really was the best day of our lives!

I don’t even know where to begin, the moment we viewed Upton barn we fell in love with it and knew it was where we wanted to get married. The setting is incredible, rustic barn filled with vintage home made rustic furniture (incredible Richard- you need to start a shop- I would definitely buy from it) surrounded by beautiful countryside ticked all the boxes! It was close to major roads yet it felt like you were away from everything and in your own world, we couldn’t believe our luck finding something so perfect so close to home. We also loved the backstory of how it all began- How the owners Claire and Richard were looking for the perfect venue for their own wedding couldn’t find one so created it themselves, this added an extra romantic level for us. We knew it was perfect for us- and so we chose to move our wedding back a few months to secure a place. The setting is so beautiful and perfect for so many wonderful photo opportunities, we had been to weddings in the past that had come to a stand still and a lull due to the couple disappearing for hours to get the perfect pictures at a different location. With Upton you can have it all, have the extra time to mix with your guests without having to compromise on the photos, you can have incredible pictures without having to leave the comfort of the venue. From the moment we viewed the venue the customer service was impeccable and we were made to feel special and important in every way by Claire,Richard, polly and the team and not like we were just another wedding. As well as having the venue, built in wedding planners came as part of the package, we had not been aware of this when we booked so this came as a pleasant surprise to us and a massive godsend! It took away so much of the stress, to have meetings with the team on the lead up to the day and to know that they were aware and on top of everything and were prepared for every eventuality meant that we could focus on other things and most importantly enjoy the day! The planning and preparation by the team was so well done that we didn’t have to think for a second on the day about what was happening, when and where or planning for the transitions, they were completely on top of it and made sure everything flowed and that we didn’t have to worry about a thing. The same when it came to the next day to clear up, most of the things had been packed away ready for us to pick up. With Upton barn we were able to have the wedding we wanted, to our taste, how we envisioned, we can’t recommend them highly enough, not only did we love everything about it but our guests, especially those who were previously unaware of its existence were blown away by its beauty and location and raved about the venue on and after the day. The excellent customer service didn’t stop after the wedding was all done and dusted we received a lovely wedding card and then a lovely Christmas card another couple of months later. We are proud to say that we got married at Upton barn... trust us... book your wedding here if you can!
