Amazing Day

Blackwell Grange Hotel was truly amazing! We had such a gorgeous day with our friends and family and they looked after us throughout.
From reserving the venue 2 years ago to checking out the day after our wedding, they were there with any answers we needed. On the day our wedding coordinator was fabulous, always there before we even realised we needed her! We had a few different requests and these were all sorted for us.
We used the George Allan Suite which is just so classically gorgeous on its own and with just a few of little touches it was perfect.
Food was amazing for our day and evening reception and the few vegetarian meals we had were too.
We would completely recommend Blackwell Grange as it was just perfect.

Just Perfect

my new Husband and I were overwhelmed by the time and effort put into making our wedding so special.We were looked after from the moment we arrived at the door. Neither of us have been made to feel as special as we were on that day. we felt like celebrities. The Blackwell Grange did us proud that day. I realise it is a team effort and our thanks goes to the whole team. Wedding Co-ordinator, catering, waiters and waitresses and the lady who kept us informed and made the announcements. All the staff involved were very friendly and helpful.
