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.

The Most Magical Day!
Where do we even begin… I cannot thank team Upton and Kaliegh enough for giving us the most perfect wedding day! It was long awaited after postponing due to Covid, but the team were just incredible throughout the entire process and nothing was ever too much. Kaliegh was the most wonderful coordinator and you can really tell that she loves what she does and is genuinely interested & excited in her couples. We felt so special every step of the day and cannot thank her enough. The venue is absolutely gorgeous and we were over the moon with how everything looked on the day. We had so many amazing comments on the venue and staff, and that everything went “without a hitch” ;) We would highly recommend Upton Barn to anyone looking for their dream wedding venue. It really is a hidden gem and will always hold a special place in our hearts. Mr & Mrs Chisholm!

The Best Day
We had the most amazing experience from start to finish. We actually booked Upton Barn before viewing it, feeling pretty sure it was ticking all of our boxes. When we did view it we were not disappointed! It is an absolutely stunning venue, with beautiful views across the countryside, a really impressive walk down from the car park. Harry was our wedding coordinator who we met at the viewing and who looked after us during the planning and on the day. She was absolutely brilliant and listened and understood everything that we wanted. We managed to get married outside in the Walled Garden which was an absolute dream. I was also fortunate enough to get ready at the paddock, which is the most stunning space and such a good size for a big bridal party, glam squad and other family members nipping in. Sitting in the chair having your hair and makeup done and looking out at the view is truly amazing. Harry also helped keep us all calm just before walking down the aisle and managed to keep us all smiling and excited despite the nerves, truly grateful for this! The day went so smoothly, we also had Phil on hand helping throughout the day and when Harry was finished. Phil was also fantastic, everything was really clear and no stress, she even very calmly helped Chris and I find the bustle on my dress that was incredibly hard to find, within minutes of the first dance, and kept us calm during this panic moment! I wouldn't hesitate in recommending the entire team, and we are left with such incredible memories. We will share photos when we get them. THANK YOU!

Absolute Dream
Between the upton staff & Rebecca Marie I honestly had ‘the dream team’. We were only planning our wedding for 3 months, so was pretty intense but it honestly couldn’t have gone better, it was seamless! Upton let my very talented team help with bringing my vision to life, it looked beautiful! I couldn’t recommend them enough, it’s been a real pleasure working with them. Especially kaliegh! Thank you thank you! X

Perfect Day!
Upton Barn is such a beautiful venue with all the facilities you could need. Both the indoor and outdoor ceremony options are equally as stunning so it is the perfect venue come rain or shine. The team were so well organised and ran a slick operation on the day meaning we could just be in the moment and enjoy ourselves with our guests. Would highly recommend!

Great Venue
My husband and I got married at Upton Barn just over three weeks ago and I can not recommend enough. We received so many compliments about the venue from our guests throughout the day and since! The outdoor space is so pretty, no roads in site and the indoor space has been so nicely decorated. A special shout out to Harry who is not only wonderful to deal with but also made the day go perfectly. Thank you so much - it really was the best day ever!!

Describe the best wedding that happened at your venue?

We couldn't choose just one, they are all so unique and incredibly special to that individual couple and their family and friends, we feel privileged to help our couples turn their dream into a reality.

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

Venues get booked up really early so if you have a specific date in mind, its never to early to book, especially if its a summer weekend. Start following potential suppliers on social media to get a feel for their work. Most of all relax and enjoy the journey, we are here to help you every step of the way.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

We absolutely love personal touches - individual guest photos used as name places or photo walls are very cute and always make the guests smile.

What part of your business are you most proud of?

We are always looking for ways to develop what we offer at Upton, in 2022 we have launched The Paddock a stunning spa like space to give our couples the option to hire a beautiful building for their wedding morning to relax and get ready with friends and family. Along with The Stalls our scandi styled accommodation pods set in a woodland glade just a stones throw from the main barns. The only thing that could tops that, and that we are most proud and truly thankful for is our 'Team Upton' we are only as good as our team and we have the best, most committed and hardworking team. We even won the TWIA national award for the Best Events Team in 2021 which was a fabulous testament to their hard work. These awards are based on real customer feedback as well as industry judges so it was a wonderful achievement. It truly makes our day when we get a good review or kind words back from our couples after their big day.
