New announcement: limited mid-week summer elopements for 2018

Mid-week summer elopements

As you’ll know if you’ve looked through the website, we offer winter elopements on Monday and Thursdays.   You can get more details of our winter elopements here and also download the brochure here directly from the website.   We’ve never done summer elopements – until now.

We’ve had a few enquiries recently for summer elopements and although we don’t take advance bookings for them because of our summer wedding commitments, I started to wonder about our remaining mid-week summer dates where we don’t have a big Wednesday wedding booked.

So that’s the point of this post – to give you the dates for our 2018 summer elopement weddings.  The dream winter elopement team can now offer a limited number of summer elopements for this summer only.

Are you ready for those dates?   They are:

July 2018

4th and 18th

August 2018

15th and 22nd

September 2018

12th, 19th and 26th

Do any of those sound like your wedding date?   You get the full winter elopement package – but in the summer, how fab is that?

So you arrive on a Tuesday, any time from 2pm, make yourselves at home in the honeymoon cottage.  The following day, on Wednesday get married in the wedding barn at 1pm or 1.30pm either just the two of you or with up to 8 guests, have your photos taken by the lovely Clare Kinchin our elopement photographer.   (You can see plenty of Clare’s elopement pics here on our real elopement weddings page.)  After photos, champagne and canapes, our private chef will serve your wedding breakfast on our covered terrace.

Our elopement florist is none other than Tavistock’s very own Chelsea Gold Medal winning florist Amanda Randell who will create a bouquet just for you.

You get exclusive use of the entire venue – yes, even if it’s just the two of you.   The only other people here are Steven and I as we live here (I know it’s a tough gig but someone has to do it).  The gardens, the lawns, the riverwalk, the glade walk are entirely yours for the day.   You can see the venue laid out here on our map:

You can retire to the honeymoon cottage for another night of luxury and then wake up the next morning as newly marrieds, ready to start your new lives together.   Breakfast on your private deck, take another wander round the gardens – no need to rush, check out isn’t til midday.

So if a summer elopement sounds like your thing and you’re ready to move quickly – get in touch!  Now.  I mean NOW!  These dates are likely to go quickly as I’ll be emailing everyone who’s enquired over the last couple of months, including those couples who asked about a summer elopement and who I told, ‘no’.   Sorry!

Now’s your chance to have that tiny summer wedding – what are you waiting for?!  You can reach me on [email protected] or call me on 0844 5000 501.
