our wedding day as amazing as it was!
Venue Service

By Liz Harris and Jack Taylor, on 27 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 27 May 2018

Just wanted to say thank you so much for making our wedding day as amazing as it was! Everyone had a great time and it went exactly as we wanted it to. Austin, you made the whole experience, from the first time we visited, to as guests were leaving, an absolute pleasure. Dave, the food, amazing! Everyone's been saying how good it was. Only bad part was that I was still full from dinner to eat the burgers! Thank you both so much.

I wish there were more than 5 stars to give Blake Hall Weddings, as I can't even begin to express how incredible it is! My husband Tom & I were married here last week, and our day was amazing from start to finish. Austin & Dave (who are both awesome blokes!) ensured that our day ran smoothly and they went above and beyond in all aspects of the planning (answering all of my million & one questions with patience and kindness), as well as on the day itself, and I couldn't have done it without them. The venue is stunning, with its immaculate grounds and pristine barns, the staff are extremely helpful and friendly (in particular Sarah & Natalie), and the food is absolutely delicious! If I wasn't happy enough already, I had so many guests tell me how much they loved Blake Hall and how much fun they'd had, which was confirmation to Tom & I that we had picked the perfect place to get married! Blake Hall will always have a special place in our hearts

We just wanted to thank everyone at Blake Hall for everything you did to make Friday so special. To say we had a blast is an understatement. I had the best day of my life. Everyone was so attentive and couldn't do enough for us. All our guests have said how beautiful the venue was and how gorgeous the food was. Please pass our thanks on to all the staff especially Austin, Natalie and Dave who were so kind and made the day extra special for us. With love and gratitude Mr & Mrs Cox (Chelle and Gav)

Everything was perfect
Venue Service

By Rachel Heighway, on 14 Sep 2017Date of Wedding - 08 Jul 2017

I don't think I can every truly find words to describe how perfect Blake Hall is. We had our wedding reception here in July (2017) and my husband and I were blown away including all the guests who still can't stop taking about it. Everything was perfect and nothing was to much trouble. A massive massive thank you to Austin and Dave who made my life so much easiler with the whole process before and on the day of the wedding and to all the other members of staff. We will never forget our day and a lot of that is down to you all so thank you so so much. Love Mr and Mrs Heighway xx

I cannot speak highly enough
Venue Service

By Natalie Gardner, on 19 May 2017Date of Wedding - 13 Apr 2017

I cannot speak highly enough of this absolutely wonderful wedding venue. My husband and I married at Blake Hall on 13th April this year after just over a year of planning. Throughout that year the Blake Hall team were always on hand for any queries we had (lots!), emails and phone calls were always met with a speedy and friendly response, and we never felt like we were a bother to them (although I’m sure at times we were!). Many people complain about wedding planning being stressful, but thanks to Blake Hall our stresses were kept to an absolute minimum. With a naturally beautiful and well kept venue, delicious food and drink, accommodation on site, top service from the day you go to view to the day you go and collect your forgotten items from the big day, how can you possibly go wrong!? Even if you did no other wedding planning aside from booking Blake Hall and a registrar you would still have the most beautiful day. Booking Blake Hall was without a doubt the best decision we made when it came to our wedding and will always be a very special place to us. Now we just have to think of an excuse to come back again!! Thank you everyone at Blake Hall, we really did have the best day ever!

Absolutely fantastic venue
Venue Service

By Sushma Samonini, on 19 May 2017Date of Wedding - 31 Mar 2017

Absolutely fantastic venue, everything is beautiful from the grounds to the barns through to the accommodation. Austin and Sarah were lovely and helpful right from day 1 and they did a fantastic job on the day, along with Dave to help our dream wedding go to plan. They made sure we had everything we needed and we are so happy we chose Blake Hall to start the rest of our lives together! Thank you all!

We're so sad the wedding is over but have amazing memory's we wish we could do it all again! Thank you for making such a perfect day for us xx Michael and Georgina

We would recommend Blake Hall to anyone
Venue Service

By Lauren Adcock, on 17 Oct 2016Date of Wedding - 30 Jul 2016

We got married at Blake Hall on 30.07.16 and loved every minute of the day. Austin was always very helpful and answered my endless questions in the run up to the wedding! On the day the staff were very helpful and accommodating and I felt totally at ease, I didn't expect to be that relaxed on my wedding day! The accommodation was lovely, we felt so at home, and so nice to be a stones throw from your ceremony and reception venue and not have to travel anywhere, we didn't want to leave! Blake Hall will always be a very special place for us, and we'd recommend it to anyone. Mr and Mrs Adcock x

Venue Service

We had our wedding at Blake hall two weeks ago, everything about the day was perfect and for the past two weeks we have been hearing amazing feedback from our guests. Firstly we have to mention the fantastic staff at Blake Hall, especially Austin, Dave and Natalie. All of the staff were so helpful and made us feel at ease on the day. The team really do make you feel welcome and will do anything that they can to make the day so special. We looked at a number of venues featuring barns, however when we visited Blake Hall and viewed the Essex Barn we knew instantly that this was the venue for us and we booked it on the drive home. This 17th century barn has been perfectly restored and is an amazing venue for a wedding reception. The food was first class. We went for the Scotch Beef, Yorkshire pudding, potatoes and veg, the portions were incredibly generous, far more than what other venues will provide. The food was steaming hot and tasted delicious. The service was prompt and the staff were very attentive. Even when all guests had been served their meals the waiters were discreetly on hand to offer any further assistance. The head chef Dave leads a top team kitchen, bar and waiting staff. Another nice touch was that we were brought a tray of canapés whilst having our photos taken in the grounds so that we didn’t go hungry. We had the most amazing day and Blake Hall played a massive part in this. We are so pleased that we chose this venue and are so grateful to the staff for everything that have done for us. We would highly recommend this venue to any other couple planning their big day. Cheers, Jason & Daniella. Full review on Facebook/blakehallweddings
