Just Perfection.

Where do I start.. Tim, Milla and the team hosted our wedding in October and it was perfect from start to finish. They were so accommodating of our requests. Being there from Friday to Sunday is a real bonus, it really made it special being with our friends and family for more than just one day. Everyone was so helpful, friendly and dedicated to making sure the day ran smoothly. They are all professionals and we didn't have to worry about a single thing, all of the guests commented on how seamless the day went.
Milla did our bouquets and they were each beautiful and wild. She also did our buttonholes, corsages and hair flowers. They really brought the whole aesthetic to life.
We compared a few venues online and we only visited Hayne and didn't need to look any further, we really recommend as it really does tick all of the boxes. It was the enchanting Autumnal dream we were hoping for. Thank you everyone at Hayne.

Winter elopement in this hidden gem

Hayne...what a magical place!
Our wedding was a small party of 16 and we had no set vision of what we wanted our special day to be, other than our favourite people in a beautiful place. Tim and Milla were amazing at creating a chilled, cozy day for our winter ceremony. Both have their own interests in the form of gorgeous flowers and musical talents and they add such a personal touch.
The gardens around their spectacular home and grounds are really special and our photos were just perfect.
Given our small group we were unsure how the day would go, but from canapes to dinner to dancing, everything ran smoothly and was exactly what we wanted without us even really knowing what that was ourselves! The whole team were friendly and professional and we can't thank you all enough for giving us the most incredible day

Best day EVER!!!

My husband and I had our wedding here, and it was simply amazing! Tim and Milla are wonderful, such great hosts and just want everything to be brilliant for every visitor. Tim's band is exceptional - totally worth it - they had everyone dancing and wanting more! We had such an amazing time, and so did our guests. Best day EVER!!! :)

Could not have been a better weekend!

Couldn't have been a better weekend! Our hosts made our wedding seamless and brought much fun and laughter to the event, we were so sad to leave at the end of it. This location is beautiful, and brought a enchanting aspect to the day with beautiful gardens and buildings. We could not have wished for a better weekend, thank you so much for everything!

Get married at Hayne Devon. That is all!

I don't know where to start with this place...... I work in the wedding industry and have been to a lot of venues. I've never been anywhere so idyllic and unique as Hayne. After we visited for the first time- we cancelled other viewings because there was nowhere else we could imagine getting married. As stunning as the place is- the way it functions is so considered as well. There's no business of having to "turn rooms around"- there's such a great flow to the different spaces, it accommodates everyone wonderfully. As for the owners, Tim and Milla could not be more helpful, calm, accommodating or brilliant. I personally really appreciated how laid back they were but at the same time, you have every confidence they take what they do extremely seriously and that really showed itself on the day.
Whoever is reading this, I cannot urge you enough to seriously consider this amazing place for your wedding. As ethereal as this may sound; there is genuinely something rather magical about Hayne. Tim and Mila describe it on the website as "Enchanting" and I couldn't think of a better word to describe it.

Get married at Hayne. That is all.

What a place! An absolutely magical venue.

What a place! An absolutely magical venue - yet still a reasonably well kept secret. We got married here in Autumn last year and it couldn't have been more perfect. The setting and buildings are breathtakingly beautiful and Tim and Milla's experience and professionalism really makes Hayne an exceptional venue. From the thoughtful creative touches Milla and her team put into the styling, flowers and food and drink service, to the care and creativity in the building restoration and grounds, and facilities, we were blown away and so were our guests. The autumn rain meant we felt really cosy in the dining area with wood burner and festoon lighting, and our accommodation with roll top baths and the comfiest beds imaginable made the perfect place to wake up as a married couple. Delicious locally source wedding brunch and fantastic music from Tim’s band on the day really added that special cherry on the top. Thank you for all the care and effort you put into our day, we'll be back for certain and have precious memories forever. HIGHLY recommended!

Tim & Milla were absolutely incredible

I got married at Hayne after a pretty short engagement of just 7 weeks! Needless to say, I needed a LOT of help planning the wedding at such short notice - Tim and Milla were absolutely incredible and pulled out all the stops for me and my husband. My very special day literally wouldn't have been possible without them.

The venue itself is stunning, and extremely versatile given the indoor-outdoor flow. Milla made all the spaces really beautiful with lights and flowers, so it felt like a magical wonderland and was very memorable. We were lucky enough to have a sunny dry afternoon so we got married in the garden, with the house providing a picturesque backdrop.

I would really recommend Hayne Devon to anyone wanting a special, highly personalised wedding, in a relaxed setting. Tim and Milla are fantastic hosts who are expert in making everything run seamlessly and - most of all - making you feel at home and relaxed on your special day.

We were blown away by Haynes rustic charm!

We were blown away by Hayne's rustic charm, but also with the high standard to which the whole place was finished.

We were so impressed by just how seamless the Hayne staff made our day. The accommodation was A- class.
