The Team Went Above and Beyond
Blakelands hosted our wedding at the start of October 2021 and we couldn't be happier that we chose them as a venue for both our ceremony and reception. From start to finish they made sure we knew everything planned for the day with plenty of notice, alongside being friendly and reassuring throughout. On top of the main events during the day going as smoothly as hoped, the team went above and beyond with small touches like making sure my bride and I had a bite to eat ready once we retired to our room on the evening, as we'd been rushed of our feet with guests during the night - that was so thoughtful and unprompted from our side. I was a bit stunned at how quickly and efficiently they turned round the rooms for us, with all the decoration looking sublime. A special mentioned to Paul, Chloe, Heather & Carissa, who all really stood out at various points over the planning months and on the day to make everyone feel so at ease and help enjoy the moments even moreso. Would 100% recommend and hope we get to visit as guests as well one day! Joe & Emma xx

Blakelands is the most amazing venue
Blakelands is the most amazing venue and made our wedding day so special. The day itself flown by but it was the best day of our lives and for the most part, this was down to Blakelands. They are truly amazing at what they do and we can't thank them enough, not only for such an amazing venue but all the way down to the finer details - they really do think of everything! Especially with Covid, we moved our date twice with ease and caused no additional stress for which we are very grateful for! Stunning venue and such an incredible team xx

Absolutely Stunning Venue
Absolutely stunning venue. All the staff were so friendly and helpful. The ceremony was lovely and emotional. The grounds were fantastic and everywhere you walked in the grounds, there was something really unique to see. The wedding meal was faultless and our room was top class. I will hopefully go back really soon.
