Perfect wedding venue
A stunning venue with an equally impressive catering team, Blackwell Grange was our clear winner when booking our wedding. Postponed due to covid, Lucy and the team were a great support and made a very stressful time much more manageable. On the day everything was perfect; the food is divine and the staff couldn’t do enough to make sure everything ran well and everyone was having a great day. 10/10 doesn’t do it justice, the perfect venue for our perfect day

Couldn't have been better!
After a six month delay we finally got married at Blackwell Grange on 12th July 2021. Blackwell were supportive through the entire pandemic, keeping on top of all the changing restrictions and being flexible with changing our date twice. In the end we couldn’t have had a better day. The whole Blackwell team were absolutely amazing, and provided an absolutely incredible wedding within the remaining Covid restrictions. Everyone was so supportive, and they seemed to have thought of everything. From the moment we arrived at Blackwell we felt relaxed and taken care of. Special thanks to event manager Lucy, who was so bright and friendly and made it all seem effortless but must have been a huge amount of work! And to venue owner Didi, who bent over backwards to help us when Covid threw a spanner in the works at the last minute. We had no end of compliments from our guests about the beautiful venue, the gorgeous outdoor ceremony space that had been created over lockdown, the seamless and helpful service, and the stunning food (both the plated meal and the evening pizzas). The caterers at Blackwell are top-notch! After the serious stress of planning a wedding during a pandemic, Blackwell gave us a beautiful, incredibly special day. We are so, so glad that we booked this venue! (photographs: www.florencefox.com)

Everything you could ever dream of in a venue
Finally got married at Blackwell Grange, 22.05.21. The team were absolutely fantastic during COVID postponement and dealing with ever changing last minute guidance for our new date. We felt nothing but supported, there was always a friendly voice at the end of the phone, no question too big or too small, nothing left unresolved. We feel the venue went above and beyond to create the day we had been dreaming about for so long, despite restrictions, they even secured additional outdoor furniture especially in time for our wedding. The day went without a hitch, everything was set up exactly as we had imagined and we feel extremely grateful to have been able to have our wedding with Blackwell Grange. The food was INCREDIBLE, every single one of our 28 guests complimented us on it, either on the day or messaged after. We had the gin bar, which was fantastic and our reception drinks were so tasty, I am making them my signature party drink! Special thanks to GM Lucy, you've been incredible all the way along and your kindness and support (and COVID restriction translation) absolutely made our COVID wedding experience stress free and our day beautiful. Thank you

We wish we could do it all over again!
We want to thank Didi, Beth & the whole team for making our wedding the best day of our lives ❤️ The venue is romantic with gorgeous furnishings which made it feel like home, and our guests couldn’t stop raving about how delicious the food was. To top it off the staff were absolutely incredible and should be proud of their work. Blackwell Grange was the first venue we looked at and we completely fell in love, so much so we wish we could do it all over again! Never stop being fabulous, Steph and Zeb

Perfect day and beautiful venue!
Blackwell Grange is such a lovely venue and is beautifully decorated. It's the perfect mix of old and new - the renovated barn and then the modern reception building. The staff at Blackwell Grange were brilliant. The day went so smoothly and they handled everything with expertise. We didn't need to worry about anything on the day as they had everything under control!!! We can't recommend them enough and had so many comments about how great the venue and all the staff were. The food was also delicious and again we had comments about how good it was - some of the best wedding food they had eaten! Thank you Blackwell Grange and a special thanks to Beth for looking after us so well :-)

FAQ

What is your No. 1 wedding planning tip for couples?

It is your day, don’t worry about trying to please everyone, and enjoy it - we are here to take the stress out of it and help you every step of the way. Take as many one on one moments with your other half as you can throughout the day as it’s such a whirlwind and you will remember those little intimate moments forever.

What’s your favourite personal touch you’ve seen at a wedding?

There are so many personal touches on every wedding, which makes them all so special in their own right. However, if I had to choose one it would be Grandma’s brooch attached to the bouquet as the Bride’s “something old & borrowed”. It is such a lovely sentiment, especially if they are unable to be there on the day in person.

Describe your venue in 5 adjectives.

Exclusive, photogenic, intimate, exceptional service and unforgettable

Where’s the best photo spot at your venue?

This is a tough one as there are so many beautiful photo locations! Our favourite has to be either our Moon Gate or Arbour. The Arbour is beautiful for outdoor ceremonies but equally a great photo spot. The sun sets behind it over the stunning scenery and it also has festoon lighting which is great for some amazing evening shots! The Moon Gate also has the addition of the beautiful scenery behind it which is also great for sunset photos….we do love the Cotswold sunset!

Have you had any celebrity guest or wedding at your venue?

Every couple is treated like a VIP here at Blackwell Grange, so in our eyes everybody is extra special to us!

What’s your favourite canapé?

This has to be the hardest of questions as we LOVE a canapé here at Blackwell. Our personal favourite has to be the Crispy Risotto Balls of Sundried Tomato and Mozzarella with Basil Pesto. It is an overall crowd pleaser! Suitable for your vegetarian guests but equally a surprising favourite amongst meat lovers too.

What’s your favourite midnight treat?

PIZZA! With our outdoor kitchen housing a beautiful pizza oven, wood-fired pizza is our hands-down favourite evening food! Who doesn’t love a slice of pizza! Drink in one hand, pizza in the other, throwing some shapes on the dancefloor… now that’s our kind of party!

What is your venue's most unique feature?

The sound system! Bespoke-made especially for our venue with over 360 speakers under one linen cloth in the ceiling and connected to inbuilt speakers throughout the venue (even in the toilets so no one will miss out one tunes!) We also have so many unique photo opportunities, including a backdrop of the huge thatch roof, the beautiful Moon Gate which is framed with scented roses and a full-glass bar area with views for days!
