Stunning place to get married on the coast

What could be more romantic than dedicating the rest of your lives together on an island, surrounded by breathtaking coastal views? Burgh Island is an enchanting and captivating location within Devon providing the perfect location for a magical UK coastal wedding.

We invite couples and up to 50 guests to utilise the hotel for their most special day in a coastal wedding venue everyone will be talking about. When you choose Burgh Island Hotel for your magical day, you will have access to 25 of our wonderfully unique rooms, each boasting its own charm, striking views and comfortable amenities. The hotel also offers an abundance of things to do with some incredible restaurants within our island confines. Additionally, take yourself back to the charm of the 20s and 30s with our gorgeous Art Deco theme. 

To ensure your wedding is the talk of the town (and the island), we thrive on giving love birds the opportunity to create a bespoke ‘signature cocktail’ for a truly personal touch to your big day. Our talented bar staff will create a unique tipple and provide guests with inspiring recipe cards as a thoughtful keepsake of your extravagant coastal wedding. Dance your way down to our Art Deco Palm Court Lounge with fabulous entertainment – we’re always eager to recommend Murder Mystery players and London-based cabaret to wow your guests. Dance the night away under the stars on our outdoor dance floor surrounded by the sounds of lapping waves and the laughter of loved ones. The bar closes at midnight, with the option to extend to 2am, so there’s no reason for the Foxtrot to stop!
