    Outstanding Venue!

    Just wanted to say a huge thank you to Blackstock for helping us have the most magical wedding day last week!
    Despite the weather being nasty and causing a power cut right before the ceremony, Blackstock were quick to jump to action, work with our suppliers and make sure there was a plan B in place. Lorraine was so calming and reassuring about how we were going to proceed, tealights had been put out to light the ceremony room as well as sorting out a generator for the music. Thinking this would be every bride's nightmare, I actually wasn't stressed at all as I knew we were in safe hands, thanks guys!
    The venue itself is beautiful and all of the staff are simply the best. I spent a lot of time communicating with Josie before the day, she was so reassuring, kind and always quick to respond when I had lots of questions; thank you!!
    On the day, Lorraine and Luigi were fabulous in making sure everything went smoothly. The food was delicious and we had lots of compliments from guests about the food and how gorgeous the venue was :)
    The waiting staff and bar staff were all brilliant. They were all smiley, polite and quick to help - thank you all!
    Would also like to say a massive, massive thank you to Alan the security guard and Luigi for helping us at the end of the night; you're both incredible and we appreciate your help and patience!
    Alan especially was fantasic after offering to take home my mother in law and sister when their taxi was arriving very late; you angel.
    Overall, a venue that meets your needs and excels above and beyond. Thank you all again, lots of love Jess and Gideon Holdgate X

    A huge thank you

    I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone at Blackstock for helping us have such a wonderful day on Sunday! The moment we first visited Blackstock we knew it was our perfect venue and a truly beautiful setting.

    Every member of staff has been friendly and helpful! Louisa and Josie were helpful answering all our questions before our wedding and on our wedding day Luigi at the start of the day was fantastic and so calming and both Kevin and Lorraine were equally brilliant! All the bar staff in the evening were also wonderful!

    So many guests commented on what a beautiful venue it was and how delicious the food was!!

    Thank you again and I’m sure we’ll be back in the not to distant future :)
