Dear All, I am so sorry I did not thank you all properly yesterday for the wonderful day you created for my daughter. I think my head was a little cloudy!!!
Everything was exceptional, all your staff were so professional and helpful. The whole of the arrangements, food and the venue itself far exceeded my expectations.
All my guests commented on what a fantastic venue we had chosen. All the children had a whale of a time and that meant relaxed parents.
So from me and all my family thank you!
Everything was seamless from beginning to end
By Poppy & Sam, on 03 Sep 2018Date of Wedding - 08 Aug 2018
I just want to write to say THANK YOU so so much for the wonderful, PERFECT day you created for my daughter Poppy and new son-in-law Sam on Friday 31st August. Everything was so seamless from beginning to end and what a fantastic venue (everyone commented on it). I shall be forever grateful that you helped make Poppy and Sam's day so special. My daughter had worked so hard and had been dreaming and planning her big day for many many years and to see it all come to fruition and see the smile which was glued on her face all day was all as a mother I could wish for. How you planned that weather too I'll never know!!!.
Thank you to each and everyone involved in making her day so special with memories to last a lifetime."
Most incredible day ever
By Sally and Gio, on 12 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 08 Jul 2018
We wanted to write and thank you and all of the team at Blackstock Country Estate for making our wedding the most incredible day ever. We had such a fantastic time with all of our friends and family, they all absolutely loved the venue, they devoured the food and you even managed to arrange the most perfect sunset!!
But more than that, the team that you have there were instrumental in making the day as special as it was. From our first meeting with Alyssa, our planning day with you, the food tasting evening and all of the other contact we had with all of you for the build up, you were outstanding.
On the day itself, Ben and Sarah ensured that everything went to plan, Gio was so grateful to him for keeping him calm and even attaching his button hole for him! Ben knew what we wanted, before we knew we wanted it! Please could you pass on our thanks to all involved and especially to your management team?
The team made so much effort
By Bryony and Paul, on 23 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 30 Jun 2018
Paul and I would like to say a big thank you to you and the rest of the team at Blackstock. The organisation and communication from yourself and Andre, was excellent from the first time we visited the beautiful venue, to the morning after our wedding day.
On the day the team made so much effort to ensure everything ran smoothly meaning we could focus on enjoying ourselves. Ben was brilliant at managing each section of the day and Sarah went above and beyond helping with set up.
Since the wedding we have had so many compliments from friends and family on the venue, so we really couldn't be happier.
Please pass our feedback onto all staff and the fine foods team.
Better than anything we could have expected
By Lisa and Lee, on 16 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 25 Jun 2018
Thank you so much to Gill, Ben and all of the team at Blackstock for making our wedding day so exceptional! It was so much better than anything we could have expected or hoped for and we were so happy!
The most perfect day
By Jade and Dan, on 25 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 23 Jun 2018
Dan and I just wanted to say a huge thank you to you, Ben, Sarah, Florin and the rest of the team for all your incredibly hard work, care and attention to detail in the lead up to our wedding and on the day itself.
It really was the most perfect day and we are without doubt that this was down to you guys and of course the fact that Blackstock is such a beautiful place!
It absolutely blew our expectations
By Jessica & Billy, on 04 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 21 Jun 2018
We had our special day here at Blackstock on 21st June 2018 and I can honestly say it was the best day we could of ever hoped for. It absolutely blew our expectations and we would not change one thing.
From the moment we visited Blackstock, nearly 18 months before the wedding, we knew it was the venue for us. Gill has always been on hand to answer my queries quickly and was very accommodating to our numerous meetings with different suppliers.
We just had the Tudor barn which was perfect for our intimate day, the courtyard was the ideal overspill area for the day and evening too which had the most beautiful sun set, not to mention the soft play area which was a god send to keep the children entertained. We also had the cottage for the bridal party to get ready in the morning of the wedding which was an excellent space for us to use, the cottage was also used by elderly relatives during the day to rest and we stayed here for the night too.
The running of the day went so smooth and this was mainly down to Ben and his amazing staff. Ben was very calm throughout the whole day and made sure everything was running smoothly. The food....wow!!! This again blew our expectations, we had tasted bits before but on the day it was just amazing, the timings and execution of this was just effortlessly run by Ben.
Words cannot describe how perfect our day was, we cannot thank the Blackstock team enough for everything they did for us. We will always look back on our day with wonderful memories, my only regret is it went far too quick!!!
Thank you so much team Blackstock!

It is absolutely stunning
By Georgia & Graham, on 16 Jul 2018Date of Wedding - 02 Jun 2018
Blackstock was the only venue that we looked at, we knew instantly that this was THE venue for our special day. It is absolutely stunning, every time we visited before our wedding we found another reason to fall in love with it.
The staff are fantastic, so accommodating to our wants and needs. We will be eternally grateful for all of the hard work and effort they all put in as a team to ensure a smooth running of the day and we could not fault anything.
The food was amazing, so much variety to choose from and so delicious, all of our guests commented on how nice it was!
We only used the Tudor barn as we had a smaller wedding, the secluded courtyard made everything feel very intimate but there is enough space that each area didn't get crowded, the perfect size! We wouldn't have known if there was another event going on in the other barn as the spacing between them is enough to not have any noise interaction. The parking is also fantastic, plenty of room.
In addition to the venue there is an onsite cottage which played such an important part in the bridal preparations, it made things so much more relaxing knowing that you don't have to travel to get to the venue right before getting married or arranging travel to another location the night of! We would highly recommend using this feature as it made the morning run up to the wedding feel effortless and the evening so easy!
All in all we are extremely happy with everything about Blackstock. we couldn't recommend it enough and would like to thank everyone there for making our day better than we could have ever thought possible.
The venue is amazing...
By Zoe and Adam, on 05 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 01 Jun 2018
Everything from the first meeting to the last person leaving the wedding day went perfectly. The venue is amazing and the staff attentive, personable and very, very professional.
We looked at around 12-15 venues around East Sussex and found this to be by far the best (though was a toss up with Broyle Place initially!) We can't thank Blackstock enough, it literally was the stuff of dreams! Cheesy review over, but fully warranted!
Perfect setting for our wedding
By Phoebe and Charles, on 05 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 27 May 2018
Perfect setting for our wedding. Food was stunning and Ben and the staff made the day seamless”
Great service from the moment we booked
By Alex and Warren, on 27 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 24 May 2018
We would both like to thank you and the whole team for helping make our day very special and one we will remember for the rest of our lives. You provided us with such a great service from the moment we booked the venue right through to the morning after the wedding.
From start to finish Blackstock were amazing
By Liz and Rich, on 22 May 2018Date of Wedding - 13 May 2018
We got married at blackstock on the 13th May and had the most perfect day. From the moment we went to look at the venue every single member staff was extremely welcoming and helpful. We managed to turn our wedding around in 6 weeks and could not have done this without the excellent team at Blackstock. Ben and his team took care of absolutely everything and on the day we did not have to do a single thing as they had already taken care of it. We had the mix grill for mains and all of our guests loved it and said it was the best meal they had had at a wedding. From start to finish Blackstock were amazing and really looked after us on out special day and we would highly recommend them to anyone else. 10/10 Thank you
