Have a day to remember and get married at The Donkey Sanctuary. The sanctuary is a truly unique wedding venue in Sidmouth, Devon.

Our picturesque Sanctuary, situated on the Jurassic Coast, offers rustic barn weddings in an idyllic location set in 260 acres of glorious rolling countryside with hundreds of resident donkeys who will certainly make your special day one to remember. The Donkey Sanctuary was also thrilled to receive a national award for Ethical Wedding Venue of the Year in 2015.

By choosing to have your wedding at The Donkey Sanctuary, not only will you be selecting a spectacular and unique location that is sure to make your day truly special, but you will also contribute to the work of the charity; helping donkeys and mules around the world and the people who depend upon them.

For a wedding day you won't forget, we invite you to hold your wedding ceremony at The Stables, where a small group of donkeys live together in peace and harmony. We transform the barn with country chic decorations to create a wedding venue like no other. We offer full or half barn weddings, and can accommodate up to 70 guests.

A day to remember

Not only is The Stables a stunning location for your wedding ceremony, but also a fantastic setting for photographs too. The grounds within the sanctuary offer extensive photograph opportunities including gardens, woodland, the main house and even a life-size bronze donkey. Where else can you have photos taken with your donkey bridesmaids? We will ensure that your wedding album will be jam-packed with unique and beautiful pictures from your unforgettable day. The Donkey Sanctuary also has stunning views out to sea, which create a perfect backdrop for your wedding photographs.

Nothing is too much trouble

The Donkey Sanctuary must be one of the most unusual wedding venues in the world and the perfect choice for those looking for a truly memorable day for themselves and their guests.
