From the moment we pulled up to Blackbrook we knew it was the venue we were looking for and they did not disappoint.Faye , Kenny and Steve made us feel so at home and helped us plan the day of our dreams just as we wanted not like other venues that you have to follow their rules ,at Blackbrook you can make your own rules .Steve was excellent in pointing us in the right direction towards our food choices and he did nt disappoint, guests are still talking about it today.Great venue , wounderful food and excellent staff.Would highly recommend Blackbrook to anyone looking for a unique venue.

Me and my husband got married at blackbrook house on the 10th september 2016.
From the initial meeting right up to and including our wedding day, everything was perfect. Each member of staff at blackbrook are friendly and genuinely want you to have the most amazing day ever.
Our day went without a hitch and thats all thanks to the rigorous planning from the team there. Our wedding day was beautiful; the decor in the house was exactly as planned, the food was all delicious (credit to steve the chef) and all our guests commented on how much they enjoyed our day.
If we could do it all again, we wouldnt hesitate!
Fabulous venue, stunning location, amazing team!

I'm a professional photography and I see a lot of venues every year but this one really stands out above the rest. Lets face it theres a lot of very similar venues to choose from but I can say with hand on heart that Blackbrook house is perfect! In the first instance the house is fab, the rooms and gardens offer so much choice and the decor fits in so well with all the little details like the vintage typewriter which the couples name typed on the paper. Its these tint details that make the venue stand out above the rest. Also the team are perfect, there is nothing they won't do to make your day perfect, I can say this with absolutely confidence as been a photography I come across a lot of indifferent service and weddings but with the Black brook house team there is nothing they won't do to help! I could write so many good things about the place but I leave it on the food which was a bit special, so many times you see the same old food combinations but not in the case of Black brook who's menu on the day was perfect! Thanks guys for looking after Sarah and Eldon and also for looking after me!
Simply the best

When planning a wedding, the choice of venue is probably the most important decision you have to make. After visiting a number of venues and not finding anything we really liked, a friend told us about the best wedding she had ever attended, at Blackbrook House. After such a recommendation we investigated and one visit was enough to know that this was the venue for us. The staff at Blackbrook couldn’t be more helpful and made the planning so much easier.
The wedding day itself was perfect in every way, fantastic location, great atmosphere, amazing food aided by an incredible attention to detail by all the staff. We have lost count of the number of friends and family who have said that it was the best wedding they have ever been to. Thank you Blackbrook House.
My amazing wedding day!!

Scott and I got married in December 2015 a Christmas wedding we had our wedding reception at Blackbrook and it was the most amazing day! The staff at Blackbrook were amazing couldn't of done any more they worked so hard to make the day so rememberable for us. Every last detail was done to protection.
I love going back to Blackbrook and all my guests had the most amazing time and are still talking about how amazing it was!
I want to thank all the staff again for all you put in to our day xxxxx
Magical Winter Wedding!

There aren’t enough words that can explain how delighted we were with our decision to have our wedding at Blackbrook House. From looking around on the open day, to the day itself, the love, care and attention shown by the team is honestly out of this world.
They really work to bring your ideas to life. They are very much about creating a day that is your day; not like the other 50 that have happened that year. They are great at showing you ideas that make the most of the time you have, the venue, and they have years of experience of knowing what works and what doesn’t.
The house is just stunning; with Victorian character features we knew that it would be perfect for our intimate, romantic theme. We only wanted quite a small wedding and we felt that whilst the house was spacious, our guests wouldn’t feel lost.
Because we wanted a romantic wedding, the thought of all the Christmas lights, along with candles and all the decorations really sealed it for us. However, never in our wildest dreams could we have imagined just how AMAZING the house looked for Christmas. It was classy, elegant – truly stunning. Our guests were blown away, as were we.
The food is just divine. Steve, the head chef, has loads of ideas. It was like eating in a top restaurant. He gave us some great options - not a chicken breast in sight! From the wedding breakfast to the evening food, everyone raved about how delicious the food was. I still dream about the sticky toffee pudding!
Kenny, Jo, Lavinia, Steve………and the team on the day, all played such a massive part in our big day and we are so thankful for their kindness. An amazing venue & team.

We got married at Blackbrook House in September and we genuinely could not have asked for a more perfect day. Everything about Blackbrook was spot-on from start to finish. The staff there are incredible, and really make you feel special - we'd especially like to thank Lav, Jo, Kenny and Steve, who all went out of their way to make our day one that we'll never forget. We currently live in London, so it was stressful at times trying to organise the day from so far away, and arranging times when we could travel up to get stuff sorted, but the staff at Blackbrook were always really understanding and accommodating. The day went by so fast, we wish we could do it all again! The food was amazing, the venue looked beautiful, and so many of our guests have since said that it was the best wedding they'd ever been to. Very happy bunnies - thank you Blackbrook! :) x
The Most Perfect Day!
By Erica & Joel Beeden-Fogg, on 14 Sep 2015
Having got engaged in Sorrento, Italy we couldn't wait to begin looking for wedding venues. We came across Blackbrook House whilst besides the pool, and contacted them to make an appointment. On our visit we drove up the driveway to the house, and both said we didn't want to look anywhere else. Meeting the staff Jo, Kenny and Lav confirmed this. They are the most attentive and sincere people, who clearly love their jobs, and take a genuine interest in your day. They make you feel like you are the only bride and groom to ever get married at Blackbrook. The venue was perfect for our dream of a vintage garden wedding with afternoon tea. They accomodated our every request and nothing was too much to ask for. The day itself went perfectly, all our guests both day and evening commented on how stunning the venue was, and how personal it had been tailored to us as a couple. For example, both being teachers it was great to see they had set our guestbook up on an old fashioned school desk! The downside was it went too fast and we want to do it all over again! Even afterwards the staff have taken the time to email us, and ask about our honeymoon. We would 100% reccomend Blackbrook House! Thank you so much to all the team!
Incredible venue, dream staff, a PERFECT day!

If you are questioning getting married here then don't - it will be the best decision you will ever make and you will be guaranteed the most perfect day! My husband and I got married here on 25th July 2015. It was like a fairytale, getting married outside and being treated like royalty from start to finish by the staff. Even in the face of a cake disaster, Kenny and Lavinia somehow managed to whip up a perfect replacement in 20minutes and make the situation into something we look back at and laugh about. The place is absolutely beautiful but the staff really make it, taking the time to get to know you and making sure you - and your guests, have a truly magical day. Everybody commented on the service and the attention to detail that was made by all staff on the day. There is no such thing as a package at Blackbrook - they help you make it exactly what you want it to be, and give you great ideas when you just don't know! We cannot thank them enough for our incredible day xx

Me and my husband got married here July 11th 2015. We had viewed numerous venues but this place instantly stood out and we gave each other the 'look'!
The whole experience with Blackbrook House was brilliant and the staff are very helpful. They are all welcoming and could not do enough for us.
On the day itself everything went perfect and again the staff were fantastic. The manager Kenny deserves extra praise as he was super on the day and on the various visits beforehand. I felt very relaxed on the day and the facilities are excellent.
We would 100% recommend Blackbrook House as a super venue to get married at. We thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience and actually would love to do it again!!
If you are considering venues I would highly recommend this place.
Thank you again to all staff. x
A truly unique and intimate wedding experience!
By Chris & Andi, on 02 Sep 2015
Lavinia and her brilliant team at Blackbrook House will provide you with the most unique and intimate wedding experience possible.
When it came to choosing our venue we didn't want any kind of out of the box experience, simply picking and choosing from different packages, be it food, drink or decor/theme. Being the food- and wine lovers we are, we wanted to be sure that none of our guests would be anything less than amazed.
We also wanted advice and someone, who could take our ideas and transform them to perfection. Add to that, had we a house big enough, we would have loved to have a wedding at home - it was supposed to feel like our space on the day, and it did!
Blackbrook House was the only venue that was prepared to take on this challenge and exceeded our expectations when delivering more than we could have ever wished for.
The venue is warm, homely, welcoming and simply a lovely place to be. In the many meetings we had with Lavinia, she was always one step ahead of us in terms of how our ideas could work and be put into reality.
The decor was simple and understated, yet stunning. Steve excelled at delivering a truly spectacular meal, which the whole wedding party loved sharing in and made the day both formal and comfortably casual at the same time.
On your special day you need to feel certain, that everything will run smoothly and without haste. Kenny ensures exactly that. His team of servers are both omnipresent, yet nowhere to be seen.
Finally - if anything should go not quite as planned on the day, the team behind will fix it!
We could go on forever, but hopefully we have said enough!

Well me and my wife only got to the entrance of Blackbrook and Zoe says to me this is the place, I'm booking it. We first went to a open day which was absolutely fabulous. Booked a meeting with lav to have a good look around the house, didn't think twice and booked our wedding for 04-04-2015. We was then passed on to Jo the wedding coordinator, we had endless meeting to go through every little detail to make our day unique to us. Food was out of this world. The perfection to detail in all ares of our day. Staff was really helpful and caring throughout our day. No wedding at Blackbrook House is the same.
We owe Blackbrook House a massive thank you for making our wedding day so magical.
If you want a day to remember and for everyone to talk about for years to come GO AND BOOK BLACKBROOK HOUSE.
