The most perfect day!
Venue Service

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

By Leanne Field and Mathew Cosby, on 24 Jan 2019Date of Wedding - 12 Jul 2018

We got married at Blake Hall on 12th July & had the most amazing day. It was everything we could have hoped & dreamed it would be. The venue itself is beautiful & the team who work there are just fantastic. Austin & Dave, I can not thank you enough, your attention to detail is second to none & you both made the day flow seamlessly. We have received so many compliments from our guests on our choice of venue so it seems everyone else enjoyed our day as much as we did. Thank you doesn’t seem enough! Leanne & Mat Cosby xx

Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Bolwell, on 24 Jan 2019Date of Wedding - 16 Jun 2018

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! Everyone commented on not only how beautiful Blake Hall is, and how yummy the food was but on how smoothly everything went!! I cannot fault them, they made our wedding day surpass expectations and you know that they really care about your day! Thank you all! Love Mr & Mrs Bolwell xxxx

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.

More than 5 stars
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Berman, on 24 Jan 2019Date of Wedding - 08 Apr 2018

If there were more than 5 stars to give Blake Hall would definitely get it. We got married there last Sunday April 8 and it was absolutely perfect. There isn’t anything that they don’t organise or do and Austin, Natalie and David were so helpful they made me feel so comfortable and at ease during all the preparation. Our family and friends thought the venue was stunning and the food is fabulous. Even all our friends who are big foodies commented on how fantastic it was. Highly highly recommend. Love Mr and Mrs Berman xx

Such a wonderful place to get married
Venue Service

By Mr and Mrs Cusse, on 24 Jan 2019Date of Wedding - 04 Nov 2017

Blake Hall is such a wonderful place to get married. Me and my partner were married here in November 2017 and we are still reminiscing on what a wonderful day it was. The venue is just stunning, whatever the time of year. There are so many great photo opportunities, it will not disappoint. Our guests loved it so much. Austin, Dave, Sarah, Natalie and the team were just amazing and are so knowledgeable in their field, you can rest easy. I had soooo many questions, which I imagine a lot they have heard before!! Yet every question was answered as if it was the first time they had heard it. I cannot thank them enough for their patience, kindness, great sense of humour and making our wedding what it was. The food was just delicious, the portions were very generous. Everyone cleaned their plates but still wanted more. We all wish we could move into the accommodation on site. The beautiful Coach House, me and my bridesmaids stayed in was just a perfect! We had a wonderful evening and morning getting ready for the wedding. And the stables, just makes the experience. Thank you again for creating the best day of our lives. We will never forget it and how special you made it for us. Wish we could do it all again. Love Mr and Mrs Cusse xx

Incredible
Venue Service

By Becca Scollay, on 25 Jan 2019Date of Wedding - 07 Sep 2017

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 :)
