September at Rockbeare Manor

We’re proud to say that a celebration at any time of year works brilliantly at Rockbeare Manor, our stunning Grade I Listed wedding venue on the outskirts of Exeter.

After all, this beautiful Regency House, situated within 100 acres of beautiful East Devon parkland, has an incredible amount to offer. Having just been for a morning walk around the grounds with one of our future couples, we spotted blackberries, elderberry’s and the most beautiful damsons in the hedgerows within our grounds. Collectively we came to the conclusion that early autumn, is definitely an idyllic time of year to get married.  

There’s no doubt about it, the busiest time for wedding venues like Rockbeare Manor is still the summer. May to August is always a popular time to get married and this summer couldn’t have been better – with warm, balmy evenings on our South Lawns, and stunning sunny backdrops to the photographs as guests enjoyed drinks and delicious canapés outside.

However, as the mornings feel a little crisper, and the evenings get a little darker, we can’t help but feel that Autumn is sometimes overlooked and yet has so much to offer.

This time of year is often still warm, with beautiful bright sunny mornings. Yet it also means that the men in your wedding party are unlikely to wilt in their suits and ties!

Your photographer is likely to love the light at this time of year, and both they, and your guests will delight in the views across our estate and the surrounding countryside to Dartmoor. It should still be warm enough to offer your guests something chilled and sparkling after the ceremony, yet it should be cool enough to proudly serve a hot, lovingly prepared meal of perhaps locally sourced fillet of beef with gratin dauphinoise and truffle beignet, or how about our loin of pork with crispy pancetta and confit potato?  

Let’s face it, what works for one, may not work for another and so whichever month, or time of year your choose, we’ll be with you every step of the way to make sure that you and your guests can really make the most of what Rockbeare Manor and the surrounding countryside has to offer.

If you’re newly engaged, and would like to discuss your wedding at Rockbeare Manor please just get in touch by calling 01392 797444. We’d love to hear from you, and would be delighted to show you around our beautiful venue!
