Weddings in Devon

Canonteign Falls is one of the most beautiful natural weddings venues in Devon. Situated in the scenic Teign Valley surrounded by 90 acres of waterfalls, lakes and ancient bluebell woodland, this is the perfect site for a fairytale wedding. Steeped in fascinating history spanning 900 years, the location is a photographer’s delight and the waterfalls and lakes provide the perfect backdrop for your special day.

Whether you want to celebrate your marriage/civil partnership ceremony or just book us for your reception, Canonteign Falls offers you a day to remember.  We provide a ‘site only’ service which means you have the flexibility to plan a totally bespoke event and can tailor your day to create exactly what you want with memories to last a lifetime.

Marriage/Civil Partnership Ceremony

Choose from either the Pagoda, situated on a platform over the Lily Lake with the breath taking backdrop of the waterfalls beyond, or the adjacent Barn overlooking the Lily Lake.
