The most breathtaking venue for a wedding the cottage we stayed in the night before the wedding was perfect staff went above and beyond to make the wedding perfect for my sister and brother in law. The barn is beautiful and the whole experience and beautiful grounds set the scene for a perfect ceremony from start to finish it was so well thought out, modern and romantic. Thank you Blake hall weddings!

Wow what can I say about Blake Hall... this was our perfect Wedding venue! I’d like to say a HUGE thank you to all of the staff at Blake Hall who made our day so perfect! It ran so smoothly and I felt so calm and relaxed throughout the day because of their hard work, organisation and attention to detail. We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect setting, the grounds, the accommodation and the barns were just breathtaking and so many of our guests kept saying how beautiful it all was. We will never forget our perfect Wedding day at Blake Hall, thank you for making it so special ??????????

Nothing was too much trouble...
Venue Service

By Sarah Jane and Darren Fleetwood, on 13 May 2019Date of Wedding - 10 May 2019

I have extremely difficult, life threatening dietary requirements that can make it quite difficult to eat safely anywhere. When we were choosing venues we were picking between Blake Hall and another venue. I spoke to the caterers at both venues and Dave was so amazing and put me so at ease that it was the easiest choice in the world to pick Blake Hall. Nothing was too much trouble, he was flexible, unbelieveably helpful, and so very friendly and kind. We threw some last minute changes at him with numbers and he went over and above to cater for us. His food was absolutely delicious and we had so many positive comments from our family and friends about it. He really did make our day so special and cannot thank him enough for everything he has done for us.

All I can say is wow!

We had our wedding at Blake Hall on 19th April 2019 and all I can say is Wow. From the minute we saw Blake Hall, my Husband and I fell in love with it and decided to have our wedding there. The venue is absolutely beautiful, and has been so well looked after. The gardens are stunning and the house you can stay in the night before is so cute and well laid out for the Bride and bridesmaids to get ready in. The level of service at Blake Hall is also brilliant - from the start Austin and Dave were the absolute best! From answering our questions, to talking about the menu and being so accommodating, letting us visit Blake Hall several times to work out the set up, and then on the day just being absolutely brilliant! They were both around to help out, with Dave making sure that my husband and I got to eat (even wrapping up some bacon rolls for us to take back that evening!), and Austin keeping the day running smoothly. The food on the day was lovely, and everyone has commented on what a lovely venue it is, and how nice the food was! They really go above and beyond to make your day special. We really cannot fault anything at Blake Hall. Even the cottages that you can stay in after the wedding are beautiful. It felt like being on holiday staying here! Also a big thank you to Natalie for all of her help on the day and for making everything work seamlessly! We really cannot recommend Blake Hall enough, thank you for all your help and for making our day so special and one we will always remember. Xxx

I have never met a kinder team...
Venue Service

By Adele and Aytun, on 02 May 2019Date of Wedding - 13 Apr 2019

From the day we visited and paid the booking deposit, to the end of your night as you enter the stable cottage as husband and wife, have been outstanding. I have never met a kinder team, Austin and Dave are absolutely incredible guys and make you feel like you have nothing to worry about, and make you laugh along the way! No matter how many times you email, you will get a kind response (sorry guys lol!). You will not find a more stunning venue - the grounds are out of this world, the barns are so pretty and full of detail, the coach house where the bride and her bridal party get ready is a dream barbie house where you wish you could live! It’s an incredible set up with so many stunning secret places for photos. On the day itself, Austin and Dave will be there with their calming faces to guide you and reassure you - everything will be under control, Austin even flared out my dress for me before I walked down the aisle. The food was insanely amazing, I am still receiving comments today - amazing, every mouthful cooked to perfection. If you want a dream wedding with impeccable service, don’t delay, just book, you will not be disappointed - I am still gob smacked at how amazing my day was and it was actually emotional to leave Austin and Dave as we left the morning after, as you don’t meet people like them all the time - the overall experience was emotional because it was so amazing. From the bottom of my heart, thank you Blake Hall and the incredible team for giving myself and Aytun the wedding of our dreams, all our love always!

The most perfect day!

By Sara Honey & Andrew Delong, on 24 Jan 2019Date of Wedding - 18 Oct 2018

We got married at Blake Hall a month ago and it was the most perfect day! We wish we could go back and re live it all again. We can’t recommend this wedding venue enough. Austin and Dave are the perfect team, as well as the other members of staff. They make sure the day runs as smooth as possible. They make you feel like you are the only Bride and Groom they have ever met and you are made to feel special and not just a number. They are with you every step of the way and always there to help when needed. It helps that they are such great people too! The food was excellent! Dave worked with us to make sure everything on the menu was exactly what we wanted. We couldn’t fault a thing! We could honestly keep writing as there is just so many amazing things we could say about having your wedding at Blake Hall. Thank you again for making our day so special, you guys were amazing!! Sara and Andy x

We can’t thank Blake Hall enough for making our day so so incredible!!! The whole team were fantastic, particularly Austin & Dave! They have been amazing throughout, answering all of my many (sorry!) questions, and on the day if ever you needed either of them they were close to hand and made everything go so perfectly!
