Great Barn Devon Weddings – Sarah & David

Sarah and David were married at The Great Barn earlier this year. This lovely couple chose simple, but colourful accents to really bring their wedding theme together. Bright blue bridesmaids and cheery sunflowers, plus lots of fun and games in the garden before the wedding breakfast. Captured beautifully by Fiona Walsh. They made full use of the grounds and garden and even our twinkly festoon lighting when the night drew in. What a wonderful day!

These annual gatherings had not only a religious significance, but were also important socially.


Rev Richard Coles – Budleigh Salterton Literary Festival

Rev. Richard Coles. From Pop to Pulpit to Paso Doble. He promised he’d come! For all those fans who were disappointed when he had to withdraw from the 2017 Budleigh Salterton Literary Festival, we’re delighted to bring you an evening with the nonchalant and charming Radio 4 Saturday Live presenter and erstwhile Strictly Dancing contestant.

He’ll be talking about his extraordinary career that has taken him from the 1980s band The Communards to his ordination as a parish priest. Broadcaster, journalist, MasterChef contestant and Big Painting Challenge presenter,
he’ll take us through the challenges of running a modern-day parish and a busy career in the limelight.


About – Czeslaw Siegieda – Photographer

My purpose was to capture and deliver my own intimate experiences of the post-war Polish community I grew up in. I wanted to focus on simple things and scenes that would tell a personal story about the spirit of a people and of a nation who would not be broken either by war or occupation.

Totnes Renewable Energy Society (TRESOC) has won the grant funding for the feasibility study from the Rural Community Energy Fund.
