Elite Venue
Venue Service

By Kiera Lingham, on 26 Feb 2020Date of Wedding - 30 Mar 2019

Kingston Estate made our wedding so spectacular it was like a dream. Everything ran smoothly, everyone’s needs were catered for and the whole presentation of the venue was very impressive. My husband and I were extremely proud to be able to hold our wedding at such an elite venue. All of our guests were taken back by the level of service, the venue itself, the grounds, the food and the location.

Wow
Venue Service

By Hannah Gaffney, on 05 Mar 2019Date of Wedding - 30 Jun 2018

Well what can I say.....a week ago today I married my best friend at the most beautiful venue I have ever seen. I cannot thank Marie-Anne, Jamie, Sarah and the Kingston team enough, our day was truly spectacular from the moment we partied on the Friday right through to the Sunday when we left. Marie-Anne did an amazing job of running everything on the Friday and especially the Saturday it went perfect, even in the heat we had it was truly the most amazing day. We are so very grateful and would highly recommend anyone who are thinking or planning on getting married to get themselves booked here, it was the best day of our lives. Thank you and much love to you guys from Mr & Mrs Gaffney xxxxxx

Wow, words cannot express how much we loved our day at you amazing venue! The setting was fantastic and the support we received from the staff was amazing throughout! Everything went perfectly and we could not have done it without your help Marie-Anne - especially when helping me solve some of my own last minute hiccups! Everyone of our guests commented on your beautiful grounds and the quality of service provided. And our weekend guests adored your beautiful cottages. You made the planning process so easy which really helped us to relax and enjoy the experience. Thank you sooo much and we can’t wait to share our photos once they arrive! Love Mr & Mrs Lloyd x

WOW FACTOR
Venue Service

By Marc and Chloe Kneebone, on 11 May 2018Date of Wedding - 02 Sep 2017

My Wife and I got married at Kingston Estate at the start of September. We had the most amazing wedding weekend and it was everything we had ever wished for. Our thoughts were shared by all of our guests who all couldn't believe this little gem was out in Staverton. The venue has everything..... The Manor House, Gardens, Barn, Undercroft Nightclub just to name a few and all of which is maintained to an extremely high standard by Marie-Anne and the rest of The Kingston Estate Team. We both couldn't recommend Kingston Estate enough, and if you ever visit for a viewing you will struggle to leave without booking it for your own wedding ........ It just has the WOW FACTOR !!!!!! Many Thanks Marc & Chloe

By Chris & Kate King, on 01 Nov 2007

Dear everyone at KIngston House for making our wedding day and whoe week before more perfect than we culd have imagined. You took a lot of worry off our minds and made the whole thing easier to enjoy. Thank you also for your patience and sense of humour in indulging the mischievous misadventures of one Cadfael Corgi who was a pageboy.Kingston is such a beautiful setting and we had the time of our lives whilst staying with you.

More perfect then we could have ever imagined!
Venue Service

By Kate and Chris King, on 06 Sep 2007

Our wedding at Kingston was perfect. They made the whole affair personal and left us with nothing to fret about and the space to sit back and just enjoy. The setting itself is glorious with thoughtful detail in everything but still feels like a home that you are, and like you always have been, welcomed in. Kingston is truly a hidden gem nestled in the green hills of Devon, not just because of its outstanding beauty but because of all the people that work to make it so beautiful. Everyone there was kind, calm, and had a good sense of humor as they helped us create a beautiful day. The house, the gardens, and the surrounding environment is all picture postcard perfect an impossible place to not feel relaxed and in love. I could not fault a single thing about Kingston. All of our guests were in awe and we felt like the hero and heroin at the joyous end of a classic novel. Kingston now has a very special place in our hearts and we hope to visit it again soon, as going back would feel to us like coming home.
