"There is something so incredible about being in God's house, surrounded by a loving church family, knowing that God is cheering you on."
St. Peter's Church
Brampford Speke, EX5
There has been a church at Brampford Speke for over 900 years, first recorded in the early 12th Century.
St Peter’s visual appeal is characterised by its relatively modest scale, appropriate to its location in a small Devon village, complemented by the sense of peace and seclusion in the picturesque setting by the River Exe.
St. Mary's Church
Ottery St Mary, EX11
The parish church of Ottery St Mary is one of the most spectacular in Devon. Bishop John de Grandisson of Exeter, who rebuilt an earlier 13th century church on this sloping site in 1342. Grandisson's new church was and modelled closely after Exeter Cathedral. This conscious emulation of the cathedral accounts for the extremely large size of the church, which seems massively too big for the population of the town.
St. Margaret & St. Andrew’s Church,
The historic Parish Church of St Margaret’s and St Andrew’s at Littleham is a wonderful church in which to be married with a warm and friendly atmosphere. There are several pathways leading to the church, the favoured one for weddings being through the lychgate, a roofed gateway to the churchyard.
Holy Trinity Church
Holy Trinity stands on elevated ground close to the centre of Exmouth, but the church tower can be seen for miles, from across and along the Exe estuary. For some it’s simply a prominent Exmouth landmark, but for others, those who worship there and those who may have been married there, for example, it is a warm reminder of their spiritual home or of their particularly special link with it.
The Church of the Nativity of the Blessed
Lympstone is located on the eastern bank of the Exe estuary; it comes to life with fishing and sailing boats every high tide.
The Church of the Nativity of the Blessed Virgin Mary is a beautiful historical Church set in the heart of the village, dating back to medieval times it was extensively rebuilt during the Victorian era. Among the wonderful features are the large windows, scattering colourful sunbeams across the nave. It boasts a set of six bells, and a modern electric organ, and we are fortunate to have an enthusiastic and talented Flower Guild who can work to any wedding colour scheme! Surrounding the church is a large, well-maintained
churchyard for your photos, but there are many other beautiful locations for photography around the village, on the cliffs overlooking the estuary, or even on its shores.
