Beach Wedding Venue Devon
Arches is a one-of-a-kind, ceremony-only, DIY beach wedding venue in the pretty Devon village of Combe Martin
Think of Arches as your own personal register office where you can celebrate your wedding however you like.
There are two options: The full wedding option, where you book the ceremony space for the entire afternoon AND also get to enjoy the gorgeous bridal room upstairs overnight as part of your booking.
OR you can choose the elopement option and book the ceremony space only for a two-hour slot from 9am to 11am, Monday to Saturday.
Get married at one of the most stunning wedding locations Devon has to offer.
A small but perfect beach wedding venue
With a total capacity of 120, the ceremony space at Arches beach wedding venue is fronted by large doors giving you stunning views across the sea. Imagine getting married here with the incredible Devon seascape as your backdrop. Or why not exchange vows in front of the spectacular flowers wall, which runs down one side of the venue.
At 7m x 10m, plus a small powder room and loo to the side, the Arches ceremony space comfortably accommodates 100 people sitting and 20 standing, but also feels intimate and romantic if there are just a handful of guests.
Paid for parking is available next door. Or you and your guests can park for free in our private car park in the centre of Combe Martin with the full wedding option.
How will you celebrate?
After your Arches wedding, why not enjoy a celebratory glass or two in our adjacent private garden or on the balcony overlooking the sea. Then head down to the beach for a fish and chip supper and watch the sun go down. Or why not hire the village hall, hang some bunting, drink Pimm’s and have a party.
Or maybe order picnic hampers, throw some blankets on the sand and enjoy an afternoon tea with fizz. Or just head to the nearest pub. There are plenty to choose from in Combe Martin and the surrounding areas.
