A wedding reception is traditionally a party that is held after the marriage takes place. The name wedding reception takes itself from being the first time the married couple receive society together, and this is usually in the form of both family members and friends.
The wedding reception is where a shared dinner, speeches and cutting of the wedding cake take place, which is normally followed by an evening of drinking and dancing as everyone celebrates the big day.
Depending upon the number of guests you are looking to invite, your choice of wedding reception venue will be affected greatly. Some may choose a more intimate venue with a small number of people, whilst others will opt for a more extravagant location with a greater number of guests. The choice you make, of course, is entirely up to you...
Arriving at Devonport House is an experience in itself: with its impressive façade of tall white columns, bold lines and perfect symmetry, it radiates elegance, sophistication and charm.
This home has a noble history. Its name derives from Viscount Devonport, who led the fund-raising campaign to build the house as a memorial to merchant seaman in the First World War. Designed by Sir Edwin Cooper, it was opened in 1929 by the Duke and Duchess of York – the future George VI and Queen Elizabeth. These days the house, rooms and every detail are all yours to enjoy.
Whether it’s your reception, your ceremony or both, we’ll make sure your day is as individual, exciting and memorable as you have always dreamed.
