Hello from Carol
In September 2019, after my children had grown up, I relocated Wedding Events Angel from Essex to the beautiful Devon countryside and started on renovating “The Folly” a boutique retreat that sits within the beautiful grounds of Mamhead Estates Gate House, Forest Gate.
Located within two and a half acres of specially themed gardens; once attributed to the world famous eighteenth century landscape architect Capability Brown, The Folly sits on the edge of the forest and enjoys an enviable view across the magnificent South Devon landscape and out to sea.
My guests frequently comment that the images and videos we publish; as magnificent as they are, somehow doesn’t do it justice, I believe it is a little bit of “Heaven in Devon”, but then I may be somewhat biased.
The Folly is a delightful one bedroom dwelling that is suitable for not just couples and honeymooners, but also for single guests and would make an ideal base for those wanting to explore the “Jurassic Coastline” and beyond. Over the past years I have designed The Folly to offer my guests not only an opulent unique stay location, but the ultimate destination for those planning an “Elopement or Wedding”.
With many years experience in facilitating both Weddings and Vow Renewals I have a wealth of knowledge and would be pleased to provide either a bespoke solution for your happy occasion or one of our fantastic packages detailed further on the “Wedding page”.
Our weddings are arranged in conjunction with a stunning wedding venue “The Brickhouse vineyard” that is located just down the road from us and our special vow renewals are hosted right here in our spectacular gardens.
During your stay, or for your occasion, I can be available to cater exclusively for you; simply select from my pre-ordered freshly cooked Breakfast or Dinner menu, that features the very best in local ingredients and is cooked fresh to order.
And for those looking for the ultimate treat, a stay at The Folly wouldn’t be complete without either experiencing one of my special Afternoon Tea’s or by celebrating your special day with a bespoke hand-made Wedding Cake.
I have a great passion for cooking and baking that began as far back as I can remember, I trained professionally as a chef and then completed a further three years at the London Bakery School mastering in sugar craft and patisserie and now have over forty years of cooking, baking and wedding cake design experience to bring to the table, so to speak.
I enjoy combining my passion for delicious food with my artistic flair to make your event or stay with us at The Folly simply delicious and will happily, cater for vegan, vegetarian and gluten free diets.
I Look Forward to Meeting you,
