A Georgian stately home on the outskirts of Bideford in North Devon, Moreton House is an elegant setting for a modern wedding with its beautiful, light-filled spaces, luxurious on-site accommodation and picturesque grounds. Rich in the beauty of this corner of Devon, guests can enjoy roaming the five acres of landscaped tree-lined gardens, while the breathtaking vistas of the north coast are just a short drive away.
The new Bridgerton-inspired Daddon Suite has further enhanced the venue’s palpable air of romance. One of the few surviving rooms left from the earlier Daddon House, which stood on the site more than 300 years ago, the suite boasts wood panelled walls and plaster mouldings which predate the Georgian house of today. Now restored to its former splendour, the elegant space is styled with soft colours and accents of gold, antique furnishings and a sumptuous chandelier, while its large windows are filled with views across the gardens. An emperor-size four-poster bed, complete with pineapple finials, takes centre stage, completing the luxe overload for newlyweds.
Included with venue hire for wedding couples, the suite makes a dreamy and photogenic getting-ready room and honeymoon suite. As well as plentiful space for gathering your bride tribe for a bubbly-filled morning of hair and make-up preparations, it is perfectly placed for a grand entrance via the formal staircase or directly into the ballroom ceremony space. And just imagine waking to the first day of married life in such a setting!
