Full Description
Within the historic setting of Blake Hall, and its lovely gardens, we are proud to offer you the beautifully restored 17th century barns as the perfect venue for your wedding. Blake Hall is only offered for exclusive use and is licensed for civil ceremonies, either inside the recently converted Hay Barn or outside under the canopy of the Old Saddlery. Reception drinks can be enjoyed either outside on the pretty lawn and terrace between the barns, or inside in the spacious Hay Barn. This leaves the Essex Barn for the wedding breakfast and evening entertainment. The Old Coach House, and its impressive dressing room, is close by, sleeps six and is available for the night before your wedding. Staying here with your family or bridesmaids is a great way to start the wedding festivities. Blake Hall is also proud to offer Stable Cottage, a delightful one bedroom cottage for the newly weds to enjoy on the night of their wedding as well as the Tack Room, The Carpenter's Shop and the Horse Box for their family and close friends. The seclusion and privacy of the Hall's stunning gardens and formal lawns and ancient trees provide countless opportunities for wonderful photographs and our experienced co-ordinators will be there to ensure your special day is stress-free and unforgettable.

Always on hand...
Thank you all so much, all of the Blake hall staff and Dave the caterer were so supportive and couldn’t do enough for us. Not just ensuring our wedding on Friday went smoothly especially with the table service, but over the last 3 years of planning! Austin was always on hand to answer my 101 questions 🤭 All of our guests have commented on what a great venue and service it was so to anyone feeling like we did and unsure whether to go ahead because of the current guidance, I recommend you do as you won’t be disappointed, we had a great day. 💖

Blown away by its beauty and hospitality
My husband and I were married at Blake Hall a year ago on the 21st September 2019. I can honestly say it was the most amazing Venue. Not only did we think this but our guests were blown away by its beauty and hospitality. Since our wedding friends of ours have since gone onto book Blake Hall as their wedding venue. I have continued to follow Blake Hall on Facebook since we married and I can honestly say their Patience and flexibility shown to brides and grooms throughout 2020 has been nothing short of amazing. I am so so so happy and proud I chose Blake Hall as my wedding venue. If you are looking for a truly beautiful wedding venue thats value for money and provides the most amazing customer service, I would highly recommend Blake Hall.

I can’t recommend Blake Hall more highly
I couldn’t find how to leave a star rating it I would definitely give a 5 star rating I can’t recommend Blake Hall more highly. My daughter got married here last Saturday and it was amazing, all the guests had a wonderful time and everything ran very smoothly. The accommodation on site was great, the venue was beautiful, the food was very tasty and Austin and the rest of the staff were very friendly, polite and accommodating which all helped to make the day magical. Thank you Blake Hall for a fabulous experience.

Such a beautiful venue
We got married here on 07/09/19 and it was honestly the most perfect venue. Right from the get go Austin was incredibly supportive and answered my MANY questions. Dave and his catering team were great, we've had great feedback from guests about the food and there was a good range of choices. The staff on the night couldn't have looked after us any better and kept checking in to see if there was anything we needed. It's such a beautiful venue, everything is well kept, gardens are just stunning. We were hoping to get married outside but having the option of the Haybarn completely took the pressure off when the weather wasn't quite warm enough on the day. I wish we could do it all again!! Thank you, thank you, thank you
