Well if anyone had said that we would postpone pretty much all of our 2020 weddings, which was going to be our busiest year to date, we would have laughed!! Now that the pandemic has been around for a good eight months we are looking at hosting small and intimate weddings.
Getting married is stressful! Throw in having to possible postpone twice and we can completely understand the odd couple wanting to marry on a smaller scale in line with restrictions and hold a blessing and big party reception when we are all on the other side of Covid! And yes, we have done our first wedding for 30 guests and what an amazing day it was! At a venue which was more then double the size needed, we felt safe and with all our covid regulations in place we were able to cater for the wedding. It was great to be back doing what we love and being a part of this extremely special day.
Having spoken to some other couples this seems to be a great compromise. Eloping is very much in fashion at the moment and what better counties to elope too then Devon and Cornwall. We have it all, amazing views, countryside and scenery, cracking wedding venues that can be beautiful and enchanting or quirky with rustic charm and fantastic wedding caterers!! Say no more!
Our diary is filling more and more with small intimate weddings at some of the very best venues we have to offer and some of these are on weekdays. You can have the best of everything for your special day and maybe even slightly cheaper if on a weekday, especially if you choose only to have your closest family and friends to attend.
An elopement wedding can be spontaneous or planned, it will be romantic, personal and relatively stress free and ultimately just be about the two of you. You still have decisions to make, but if you want an all vegan menu, you can with no one telling you that your ideas are not going to work.
If you love coming to Devon or Cornwall for a short break then why not make it an extra special visit by getting married while you are here. Choose a beautiful venue to marry and choose suppliers that will compliment the intrigue of your elopement.
