Optional Extras

Our elopement package has handy add-ons, so you can have any of these finishing touches as extras for your perfect elopement:

  • Mini wedding film
  • Local hair and make up stylists who will come to the venue on the day*
  • Additional flowers arranged directly with our florist*
  • Additional hours photography arranged directly with our photographer*
  • Extra accommodation on site for your guests from £228 (incl VAT) for 2 nights

*Our elopement photographer and florist will definitely be available for any extras, there’s no need to check their availability for your day as they do all our scheduled elopement dates. Hair and makeup professionals and film makers are optional extras so you need to check their availability for your date directly with them – we can’t guarantee they’ll be able to do your date

Elopement Flowers

If more flowers are for you, well just more…you can order extra flowers from our florist

Maybe you fancy flowers for your cake or your hair, some extra table flowers, an arch for your ceremony – whatever your flowery dream, Amanda can make it happen

Elopement Photography

Your elopement package includes an hour with our elopement photographer, Clare, who’ll capture the special moments before, during and after your wedding ceremony

Extra hours can be arranged if you’d like even more pics or you want photos taken in our woods (bring wellies!)

Elopement Film

For an extra special touch, you can have a lil film of your elopement to get the priceless emotions of your day on film

As with our other optional extras, we’ve got a preferred supplier although you’re welcome to bring your own people if you prefer.  

Baxter + Ted are our go-to people. They will do you a bee-you-tee-ful wedding film.  You’ll need to check their availability for your date directly with them.

When should I elope?

Every season is magical in its own right for an elopement wedding. Whether you love that cosy winter feeling or seeing the first shoots of spring, your favourite time of year is the right time for your dream elopement

Choose your elopement season...

Early Spring Elopement

With the promise of warmer weather approaching, spring bulbs are blooming. The daffodils are out and the camellias and early tulips are adding to the feel of spring on its way

Early spring at Ever After is a beautiful time to elope. And with warmer temperatures, you could get married in the wedding barn and have champagne and canapes in the garden before heading into the terrace to eat

£3,900 (incl VAT)

Summer Elopement

Having your elopement at Ever After in early or late summer means you get to enjoy our magical gardens at their best

You’ll have full access to all the gardens the whole time you’re here, there are no restricted areas so you can make the most of the beautiful surroundings. We’ve also got our own woods so you can get some stunning photos in the woodland and along the river.  You’ll need to book an extra hour with our photographer if you want woodland wedding pics.

£4,500 (incl VAT)

Autumn Elopement

Summer is leaving but winter hasn’t yet arrived. Copper tones on the trees amongst the last of the garden flowers, mini white pumpkins and the warming tones of flickering tea-lights

Go for yellows, oranges, deep reds, mixed with a touch of foliage… And perhaps a feather bolero for when the temperature drops. Or pick contrast colours to play against the autumn tones

Sit by the fire with a basket of blankets in arms reach, and a glass of wine in hand, the place is yours for the evening

£3,900 (incl VAT)

Winter Elopement

The magic starts to happen as Christmas draws closer

Get married in front of the open fire under the glass roof or in the main house. If you choose outdoors, we’ll put sheepskin rugs and hot water bottles out

In December there’s always a Christmas tree (or two) around to bring that Christmassy feel. You get a roaring fire and heaters but make sure you and your guests wrap up warm so you can get some great wedding photos outdoors in the gardens

And as the night draws in, snuggle up together on the sofa with our cosy blankets in front of the fire

£3,900 (incl VAT)

Registrars Fees

You need to book the Registrar for your wedding ceremony, we can’t do that for you. You can reserve a date online with Tavistock Registrars, the fee is currently £50 which guarantees your date. The two of you also need to go along to your local Registrars office in person to provide proof of residence and ID. That can be done at any time in the 11 months before your wedding date and MUST be done at least 28 days before your wedding date

Don’t book your date with the Registrars til you’ve checked with us that we’ve got the date available
