It couldn't have been any better!
Venue Service

By Mr & Mrs Linley, on 07 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 05 Oct 2018

I don't know where to start...Lavinia and team were friendly, knowledgeable and efficient from the very start. Nothing is too much trouble, and their experience and ideas are invaluable. The planning was an easy process, and the day ran like clockwork; always someone on hand to answer a question, help a guest, and make sure everyone had the best day. Thank you so much team Blackbrook!

A Perfect Day!

By Mr & Mrs Lindell, on 04 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 26 Apr 2018

Our wedding at Blackbrook House was truly wonderful. Lavinia and the Team at Blackbrook created something incredibly special - a bespoke wedding that reflected our vision to perfection. There isn’t anything we would have wanted to have changed - it really was a ‘Perfect Day!’ All our guests felt very looked after and were on a high for days. Our guests lavished us with compliments about every aspect. We are simply over the moon and overflowing with beautiful memories. We can not thank Blackbrook enough and we will always be grateful.

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!
Venue Service

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

By Andy & Yoly, on 15 Jun 2016

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!!

Magical Winter Wedding!
Venue Service

By Sarah & Rob, on 16 Mar 2016

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!
Venue Service

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!
Venue Service

By Becca & Ed, on 07 Sep 2015

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
