The Best Experiance
We just wanted to say a huge ‘Thank you’ to all of the staff at Blakelands for making our wedding day so perfect. 10.09.2021. This was our fourth wedding date due to COVID restrictions and the staff could not have been more helpful or accommodating during our wedding planning. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and we fell in love with the venue from the first time we visited back in 2018. The bridal loft was a huge selling point for me for getting ready on the morning of our wedding! The day itself went so smoothly and the whole team were so well organised to ensure all of our bridal party and guests were well looked after. The reception and evening food was delicious and all of the guest rooms including the bridal suite were decorated beautifully. There are so many beautiful places for photo opportunities both inside and out of the venue we were spoilt for choice. We have visited Blakelands on many occasions for their wedding Fayres, open days etc and have always enjoyed our visits and feel we have got to know Chloe, Heather, Paul and the team during our long engagement! We know that anyone looking to book Blakelands as a wedding venue in the future will have the BEST experience as we really can’t recommend this wedding venue and the Blakelands staff enough! Thank you for all you have done for us over the past few years - we wish we could do our whole day again with you! Mr and Mrs Vickers

Perfect Venue, Perfect Day
When we first visited Blakelands we knew straight away that this was our venue. It’s not just the stunning views of the house and grounds (although I can’t say enough about how gorgeous the place is!) but also how wonderful the people are. Heather and Chloe were friendly and welcoming from the start, it sort of felt like we’s always known them! No question was silly, nothing was ever too much to ask for. On the day itself Paul and his team ran the event so smoothly I just felt like I breezed through it. Every single member of staff is ready to help, to congratulate you, or bring you a drink, and they always remember your name and welcome you with a big smile! The tips to get me down the aisle, ensuring my dress was laid out perfectly behind me.. I’m so grateful for everyone’s care and help. They also kept us so well fed! The food was divine, and I’m especially appreciative of whoever thought to wrap some baguettes up for me and my husband to find in the bridal suite so that we got some food of the night! Our guests loved their rooms and their meals, everyone has been very complimentary. Heather said it’s a leap of faith to book a wedding venue - but with Blakelands it’s an easy choice. Thank you for a perfect day!

Better than we ever could have imagined!
From the moment we pulled upto Blakelands we knew it was the venue for us. It is just so beautiful. It's a family run business and you can honestly tell they love what they do. All the staff were amazing. They pay so much attention to even the smallest of details, which makes all the difference. The day itself was so well organised and so relaxed. I hired the bridal loft to get ready with my girls and it was the best decision as we were all in one place and had a lovely breakfast package. The food was amazing and the few food allergies we had were so well catered for with no issues. Overall we had the most perfect day and given the option to do it again we would choose Blakelands every time.
