Your Romantic Outdoor Wedding Venue
You see him standing there at the end of the aisle and your heart starts to flutter, like the day you first met.
Surrounded by the beautiful countryside & situated next to the River Exe. Bickleigh Castle can ensure your outdoor wedding goes to plan. Just imagine saying your wedding vows with the sound of the river running by, robins singing in the trees and the tree quietly rustling in the wind. Although we may not be able to guarantee the weather outdoor weddings are truly spectacular. We do have different options in place in case of a “British downpour” We will evaluate the weather the Friday before the wedding and set up The Great Hall as a backup plan if we think there may be a chance of rain.
After the ceremony, you can move to the versatile Wedding Breakfast Room, where you can dine in style with all your friends and family. View our menus for more information about our 5-star dining experience. For extremely large weddings it is necessary to hire a marquee.

We had an amazing wedding weekend at this beautiful castle, full of character and charm, in the middle of wonderful Devon countryside, flowing river.throughout the weekend the staff worked around the clock to make sure every detail was perfect, the rooms have amazing character ,the castle is full of splender and history, the food and drink for breakfast to evening was fantastic, we had fireworks, ice cream kart, and disco, all were amazing words escape me but I’m amazed by how well the wedding flowed perfectly without any hiccups, the guests were over the moon to be invited to such a wonderful place the fireworks were second to non and finished the weekend perfectly .we highly recommend this beautiful place, fantastic staff and everything in between.
They wanted a fairy tale venue & they got one… The accommodation was clean and well presented, the beds were very comfortable. Nothing was too much trouble. The ceremony was exactly what they wanted. The food at the wedding breakfast was lovely.
People have not stopped commenting on how delicious the food was and how amazing the fireworks were, nothing could have prepared us for how magical and emotional the day was for us both. Bickleigh is a very special place with an amazing charm of its own. Everyone of our guests without fail commented on how wonderful a venue it was, like no other wedding venue they had been to before.
With a venue like this, people like this & a service like this, it couldn’t be anything other than the Perfect Day!
A perfect wedding- thank you so much for inviting me to share it with you. Your lovely families & friends are so special & you are such an amazing well-matched couple! Have a perfect future as husband & wife
We just wanted to send you a note to thank you again for everything throughout the planning on our wedding day. It was truly was the best day of our lives and we are still getting comments from family and friends about how amazing it was. We have gorgeous photographs and a fantastic film, which we regularly watch, wishing we could do it all over again!
The day ran SEAMLESSLY!! Sharon and Sarah showed us the true meaning of a fairy tale wedding, amazing food!! The relationship we made with Sarah was genuine , she interacted with the family and made a grand job which made me have the Best Day of my Life!
The most stunning venue, so personal, charming and beautiful. I have never been anywhere like Bickleigh Castle, completely unique. Thank you! x
My son and his bride chose Bickleigh Castle for their wedding, what an amazing place to celebrate. It was absolutely wonderful. Everything was perfect – from the lovely cottages, breakfasts, cream tea in the afternoon when we arrived, the Barbie in the evening to the most wonderful wedding ever! So seamless and perfect without one realising how much hard work goes on being the scenes. A massive thank you to all at Bickleigh Castle – wedding breakfast amazing food, chef, fireworks incredible and the dancing and singing in the evening!
Dear Sarah and team, We are still floating after the amazing wedding we had with you on the 14th October! We really wanted the opportunity to let you know how much we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves, and how much our guests were in awe of our celebrations at Bickleigh! From the onset we could have not asked for more support or help; The wedding breakfast room was set up so beautifully, the organza that we gave was hung in such a stylish yet understated way, and it looked amazing. It was a pleasure to have been able to have celebrated in such glorious surroundings overall, Bickleigh has such a charm which deserves all the praise it gets. We were so completely relaxed and it did feel a little like home from home – thanks to the care and attention we had from you all. We really do have to stress how fabulous your staff are – we cannot remember names very well, but in particular Richard and a young lady who I keep calling Marie – I hope this is correct – she was the lady who helped me up the stairs with my dress going in to the great hall, and she served our table and looked after Angus and I very beautifully during the wedding breakfast. They literally kept the wedding running on the very practical side, Richard served our guests and ourselves with such respect and helpfulness, he must have been completely exhausted! David Read was brilliant – he did call me Karen though at the blessing, which raised a giggle! Such a delightful man, I particularly found him delightful, helpful and funny and was very pleased he was part of our day. Scoff catering is a blessing, the food was delicious, served hot and presented beautifully! I have sent an email to him separately as I have his addy. The jazz band was completely amazing! It really made the afternoon enjoyable, and with the weather being nice enough they could head outside, it made it go so quickly whilst photographs were happening! I also need to thank you and Robbie for the ride in your amazing car! How fantastic that the number plate is my Daddy’s initials! Obviously meant to be! Thank you again Sarah, we would very much appreciate that you pass on our thanks to your team. They are all fantastic and you must be so very proud to have them work with you. With much love and best regards, Clare and Angus Beer
