The Palazzo, which officially opened just last November, is the only venue of its kind in the South West. Built to reflect the county’s Roman past, the Palazzo has been created following the Tuscan order of architecture, giving the venue exceptional detailing including frescos, arcades of pillars and two stunning cupolas, which can be seen throughout the rooms and suite found within the venue. There is even a horse and chariot at the entrance to the building; offering unique and playful photographic opportunities for the happy couple!
In contrast to its classical styling, the Palazzo also offers the latest in state-of-the-art innovation, from its audio-visual systems, lighting and sound and even integral scent atomisers so the venue can be perfumed according to individual preference.
This blend of Roman classical lines, opulent glamour and innovation make The Palazzo the perfect choice for brides looking to host a stand out, destination wedding, whether they are looking to entertain 24 to 280 guests at a sit down function, or up to 400 for a cocktail-style event.
The hotel’s wedding team work alongside the bridal party to create the right styling, menu and entertainment for each event. The hotel is also licenced (inside and out) for weddings, meaning the hotel can manage every detail on site. The Manor House, built in an arts and crafts style, is a spectacular backdrop for photographs, and also has smaller spaces ideal for tea-parties, drinks with bridesmaids or ushers and the award winning Devon View Restaurant can host pre-wedding night dinners.
Highbullen is ideal for destination weddings in particular, as the hotel offers 36 bedrooms across its 125-acre estate, and has just opened its new uber-luxury Loft Suite complete with in-room roll-top bath, perfect for a newly wedded couple’s first night.
