Absoloutley perfect!

I honestly cannot praise Vicky and all the staff at blacknest enough if I tried!

For us finding a venue wasn't something we overly enjoyed. We felt as though alot of venues just wanted our money, and didn't truly care about what or how we wanted our day to be. That was until we met with Vicky at blacknest! She was absoloutley amazing from the moment we met her, the sincerity of her interest about what we wanted our day to look like was outstanding! She made us both feel completely at ease and bought the exictiement back into planning our wedding.

Blacknest is a stunning venue, and all the staff are absoloutley incredible and genuinly care and listen to how you would like your day to be. We personally couldn't have done any of it without them. Every worry, every concern we had, Vicky and the team were there to straighten everything out. Even when we were blessed with beautiful weather for an October wedding and decided (last minute) to have an outdoor ceremony, Vicky made it happen because it was what we wanted, and it was absolutley beautiful. 

Thank you so much to all the staff at blacknest for your constant reassurance and communication throughout, you really did make the whole experience easy and enjoyable. The day itself was absoloutley perfect in every way, we couldn't have wished for a better day, it really was everything we ever imagined it would be, thank you so much,

Mr & Mrs Tullett

Best Day of our Lives

After looking at many wedding venues, we came across Blacknest Golf & Country Club. Both myself and my husband fell in love with it, it was everything we have dreamed of for our wedding day. From start to finish, Vicky and Georgia were so professional, friendly, they just made the whole experience delightful. On the wedding day itself, everything went seamlessly, the guests had the most magical day. The food was delicious, the team who worked on the day of the wedding were exceptional. As the review title suggests, we had the best day of our lives

Amazing venue & team!

Blacknest was the perfect venue for our laidback, festival style wedding! Vicky, Georgia & the team encouraged all of our wildest ideas, and no request we had was too much for them. I couldn’t recommend Blacknest more to other couples - the team are fantastic, the food was incredible & the atmosphere was amazing and made our wedding day incredible.

Flexible and Friendly

We had our wedding at blacknest on 8th April 2023 and the experience we had was amazing. Vicky and Georgia were attentive and supportive throughout the whole wedding planning process which helped put us at ease. All the staff on the wedding day were outstanding providing a professional service and the food was excellent. They were so flexible and relaxed about our decisions for food for the wedding breakfast as well as providing us with an evening meal the night before the wedding. Would highly recommend this venue to anyone looking to book a clubhouse wedding and it was great value for the money.

The best venue ever

A beautiful blank canvas with the most incredible staff team!
Blacknest is a beautiful setting where you can put your own touches on everything!
The most helpful team of coordinators made the day run so smoothly. Always willing for us to do visits on the run up, and so laid back and fun making the whole process so much easier.
The food was insane, we could pretty much pick whatever we wanted despite food being in house. We had pizzas and burgers, nachos and butties and it all went down a storm. Reasonable priced drinks too!

We will be forever grateful to Vicky, Georgia and their team at Blacknest! Reasonable priced too considering it included food, drinks package and accomodation!

Best wedding ever

Huuuge thank you to the team at Blacknest. We both found the process of choosing a venue for our wedding to be quite stressful. We found so many venues to be faceless and evasive with lots of hidden costs and they wouldn’t give you a straight answer, and we felt that we and our wedding would just be a number to them. This was never the case with Blacknest when from our first meeting with Vicky she was so keen to learn about us and our vision for the day and was so excited to make that happen for us. The best part was she actually meant it! All the way through our wedding it was such a relief to know that if we had any concerns we could just pop in for a chat with Vicky and that she knew us personally and knew our wedding, and this made the whole process SO much less stressful. Leading up to the day she and Georgia were always keen to keep in touch and all of our other suppliers were so impressed with how easy they were to contact and to work with. On the day itself there were a couple of issues that couldn’t have been foreseen but the whole blacknest team pulled together and we never even knew there was a problem. All of our guests commented on how fab Vicky and Georgia were and how hard they and all the team worked. The tipi itself was also beautiful and provided exactly the relaxed vibe that we were looking for. So many of our guests have commented on how much they loved it.

Thank you again to all the team at Blacknest for giving us the best wedding we could ever have wished for!!

The most perfect end of summer wedding

Vicky, Georgia and the team at Blacknest are unbelievably helpful and accommodating. They made sure our wedding went smoothly, from the first venue viewing to the big day. Any worries we had were sorted the second we spoke to the team, and they made sure our day was perfectly tailored to us.

Perfect Venue with Faultless Staff

We got married here in May in the Woodland Tipi and could not recommend this venue enough. Not only did we have total control over our special day down to the last detail, Vicky and Georgia took a lot of the pressure off of our shoulders. The team at Blacknest dealt with every little job that needed doing which saved us a lot of time and stress, and made sure it was exactly how we envisaged. It was a slick operation and we were communicated with at every relevant point in the process. We were also informed of contingency plans in case of bad weather so we knew we had nothing to worry about. We particularly loved how everything was in one place and a lot was done in house. We had so many compliments from family and friends about how stunning the venue was, and how lovely the food and staff were. The pricing was very reasonable compared to other venues we visited.

Festival wedding of our dreams!

We got married in the woodland tipi at Blacknest and it was AMAZING! Hayley and the team were so helpful throughout the wedding planning process and the venue is stunning, nothing was too much and we were allowed to have everything we imagined, even down to having our T4 parked up and bell tents. Our guests have been raving about the day ever since, especially the food, it was so much nicer than standard wedding food! We would definitely recommend Blacknest as a wedding venue and are looking for an excuse to have another party there very soon, thank you all so much for everything :)

The fun, personalised wedding we wanted

Vicky and Georgia were fantastic; they had genuine excitement for our unusual ideas and worked hard to coordinate the venue and staff to achieve them. They were accommodating, knowledgeable and friendly which made creating the wedding day we wanted much easier than we anticipated. This was helped by the teepee venue being a unique, outdoor setting we were looking for to celebrate a fun wedding day. Being surrounded by green grass, trees and all the lawn games for kids (and adults!) with so many choices of different foods made the day!

Best venue ever!

We had the time of our lives at Blacknest golf club! The venue is breathtaking and we would highly recommend getting married there :) The staff were fantastic, they were very accommodating and friendly. Hayley was great in helping us to organise everything. She was professional, friendly and calm, efficient and was always available to discuss details. The food was EXCELLENT and drinks were reasonably priced. I would love to do it all over again! Thank you Blacknest for making our day so special :) We will remember this day forever!
