Design & Food

Ceremony & Reception Locations
The Drake Devonshire offers several different options for your wedding ceremony and reception based on the size of your party and your vision for your gathering, from an elopement with just the two of you on the owner’s suite balcony to a gathering for 50 with a seated meal service in the Dining Room.

Portrait Locations
The location options for portraits (couple’s portraits, family formals, wedding party) are endless, with a mixture of funky wallpapers and backdrops to the natural landscape of the beach/lake and creekside spaces. We will consult on your timeline to ensure you have plenty of time to get the photos you want, and to enjoy your wedding experience.

Activities
When you get married at The Drake Devonshire you can do everything on site; stay at the Inn, have a slow breakfast and a jump in the lake to wake up in the morning, get ready, host your wedding and reception and then retire to your suite for your first night as a married couple.

Why The Drake Devonshire is a unique venue for your wedding:

  1. Not your average wedding meal. The Drake prides itself on delivering the best that The County has to offer in terms of seasonal ingredients and Drake favourites.
  2. You can dress it up or dress it down – however you prefer. Go all out and bring in a wedding planner, florist, tablescapes to make your vision come to life OR keep it simple and embrace the bold architecture and vibrant colors of the Drake itself.
  3. Get ready, and stay on-site. This is such a dream for weddings of all sizes. You can have the all-inclusive practicality of a typical hotel wedding, with none of the typical hotel wedding feels.
