New cliff-top hideaway offers couples a wedding venue with a difference.

COUPLES in the dark about where to hold the perfect wedding are being invited to tie the knot in a “cave”.

The new venue is more chandelier than stalactite, but the clifftop spot overlooking Westward Ho! certainly offers something out of the ordinary for those looking for a wedding with the wow factor, writes Sarah Howells.

The Ocean Kave, built into the hillside at Duckhaven Stud, features an authentic cave-style interior with wood-burning stove and folding glass doors overlooking the sea.

Completed last month, the venue was the brainchild of Kathy Murdoch, director of family business Westward Living, which recently opened the Latitude 51 development in Westward Ho!

Kathy said: “We are very proud to have created Ocean Kave – the natural cave-style interior has been crafted by local Devon masons and finished to the highest standard to give an authentic yet elegant cave feel.

“The two corner platforms are perfect for a quartet or gorgeous floral arrangements, providing couples with the most flexible space to arrange their perfect ceremony.

“It’s an amazing project and we already have a great number of bookings and enquiries for local couples for both weddings and civil partnerships.”

The venue opened with a spark of romance, as Duckhaven holiday regular Joe Toye used the Kave as a setting to propose to his girlfriend Jessica Turnham. Back from a ten-month tour in Afghanistan, Joe arranged for the Ocean Kave to be kitted out with candles, drinks and a three-course meal before getting down on one knee.

Jessica and Joe are now hoping to get married at the venue in 2014.
