Capturing your heart from the moment you arrive, Blackwell Grange has been a family home for generations, loved by its owners and steeped in history. In 2016 Blackwell Grange opened its doors as an exclusive-use wedding venue for your special day sharing every wonder of the listed buildings and the land, from the characterful heritage to the tranquil Cotswold location, featuring contemporary, elegant interior design and exceptional attention to detail.
Over the past 400 years, the beautiful 16th century Thatch Barn has become part of the Blackwell landscape. Lovingly restored, it is licensed for civil ceremonies with features including the original oak beams and barn doors, a magnificent open fire and ambient lighting. Say your vows in this romantic, rustic barn, before enjoying welcome drinks and canapés on the Apple Tree Lawn. Alternatively, you might choose to have a religious ceremony in one of the many picturesque churches in surrounding villages.
Dining and dancing take place in the contemporary Orchard Barn, bathed in light from its floor-to-ceiling windows and doors and featuring a stylish bar and staircase, impressive dining space and mezzanine ‘chill out’ area. Heritage and modern design collide and blend effortlessly together. Bar stools made from tractor seats, and doors paneled with wood from the original water tower sit alongside a striking helical staircase and contemporary copper bar. Expert craftsmanship and exceptional interior design can be seen at every turn.

Delicious, fun and theatrical, we want this to be the most spectacular family meal you have ever enjoyed. When it comes to your evening celebration, our talented chefs will delight your guests with food that is a visual and taste sensation, from live food stations to barbecues or wood-fired pizza in the Herb Garden.

Special Venue, Special experience
Finally got married at Blackwell Grange, 22.05.21. The team were absolutely fantastic during COVID postponement and dealing with ever changing last minute guidance for our new date.
We felt nothing but supported, there was always a friendly voice at the end of the phone, no question too big or too small, nothing left unresolved.
We feel the venue went above and beyond to create the day we had been dreaming about for so long, despite restrictions, they even secured additional outdoor furniture especially in time for our wedding.
The day went without a hitch, everything was set up exactly as we had imagined and we feel extremely grateful to have been able to have our wedding with Blackwell Grange.
The food was INCREDIBLE, every single one of our 28 guests complimented us on it, either on the day or messaged after. We had the gin bar, which was fantastic and our reception drinks were so tasty, I am making them my signature party drink!
Special thanks to GM Lucy, you've been incredible all the way along and your kindness and support (and COVID restriction translation) absolutely made our COVID wedding experience stress free and our day beautiful. Thank you

The best day of our lives
We want to thank Didi, Beth & the whole team for making our wedding the best day of our livesSent on 13/03/2019
The venue is romantic with gorgeous furnishings which made it feel like home, and our guests couldn’t stop raving about how delicious the food was. To top it off the staff were absolutely incredible and should be proud of their work.
Blackwell Grange was the first venue we looked at and we completely fell in love, so much so we wish we could do it all over again!
Never stop being fabulous,
Steph and Zeb

The events team were a dream
The events team were a dream, they did so much for us and were fantastic throughout the planning stages and on the day. On that note the owners of Blackwell Grange are amazing and another reason we chose the venue. They are a lovely couple clearly with so much passion for the venue and were so accommodating to us.Sent on 04/05/2018
