By Mr & Mrs Brophy, on 12 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 07 Dec 2018
Our wedding day was Friday 7th December 2018, and we can't thank Chloe, Paul, Heather and all the amazing team at Blakelands enough! We booked Blakelands in May 2016, over the course of many years planning Blakelands team were absolutely amazing, every step of the way they were with us! All of our guests commented on the lovely settings of Blakelands, the food at our wedding breakfast and reception was outstanding! Anytime of the time year is perfect to get married at Blakelands, but Christmas time with the trees, the lights, open fires, it really is so magical! So thank you for the bottom of our hearts, for making our wedding day so perfect! Love the new Mr & Mrs Brophy! Xx
Best day EVER!!

Our Perfect Day
By Mr & Mrs Healey, on 12 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 29 Sep 2018
Where do I even begin here? I’m very much a person who will do everything on their own just to ensure it’s how I want it but honestly from the first moment we viewed blakelands we knew this was our dream wedding venue and I felt so at ease and at home I felt I was able to let go and let the team carry on. When I say nothing is to much trouble for the team I honestly mean nothing is too much trouble, I messaged Chloe on Facebook at crazy o’clock as I would of had a bizarre idea or a crazy worry and honestly she kept me sane throughout, she was so professional, understanding and kept my mind at ease. Our wedding breakfast, now this was the talking point of our day, everyone was commenting on how nice the food was and how big the portions were, we had a couple of dietary requirements and blakelands dealt with this and accommodated this superbly, one of our guests couldn’t eat pork (evening meal) and without me even asking Paul had suggested that the chef would cook our guest a chicken sandwich rather than Pork. Now o know first hand a lot of places wouldn’t be this accommodating. The team were never far from hand but were out of the way from the day as such that no one even noticed them. We booked all of the accommodation rooms out for our wedding party and this was so homely. No one could fault the rooms and there were clean, comfortable and spacious. In case you can’t tell I highly recommend the team and the venue for your special day
Could not recommend enough!

Myself and my new husband got married here at blakelands yesterday (29th September 2018) we’ve booked our dream wedding back in July 2016 and the whole team have been amazing throughout.
Nothing has ever been to much trouble and they are so friendly, kind and welcoming.
All of our guests yesterday both evening and day time all complimented the grounds, staff, food and feel of the place.
Honestly can’t thank you all enough for making our dreams come true and making our day so special. Xxxx
You wont be disappointed.

No Less than Perfect!
By Mr & Mrs Shinton, on 08 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 15 Sep 2018
What can I say, our wedding was no less than perfect! We booked The blakelands over two years ago after seeing paul at a wedding fair. I had dismissed this venue before hand as I had only seen photos of the old house. Am I glad I bumped into him?! He showed photos of all the grounds and we decided to go to their wedding fair.
Here we realised that all the grounds had character especially the barn. We felt ‘at home’ as soon as we walked in. It was exactly what we were looking for and the best decision we have made, booking the blakelands for our wedding, September 2018.
Paul, heather, Chloe and the rest of the team are fab. Everyone that came to our wedding commented on the grounds, the food and the service. If I could fault our day in any way, I would be honest and say so. But it was incredible. If your looking for a venue for a wedding, retirement party or anything else, you will not be disappointed by choosing this venue!
Thank you to all the team at The Blakelands, we had the best day celebrating our married with you and there’s no doubt you will see us soon!

The most incredible venue I could wish for
By Rebecca & Ryan, on 08 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 07 Sep 2018
I literally had the best day of my life on my wedding day and that is all thanks to blakelands and the amazing staff that worked there, we never noticed them being in the room (until we saw the wedding video) unless we needed something but they were always there before we needed to ask for it. From the beginning of planning our wedding we could not have asked for more, everything was really organised and I think every single one of the guests at the our wedding commented on how amazing the venue was, I highly recommend this venue that can cater for for all your needs including having a chair lift for people who may struggle with the stairs and rooms so people could stay over the night of the wedding.
More than we ever imagined

Being local to the blakelands, we have always known it to be a fabulous venue for weddings but... Wow! From start to finish the venue and especially the team behind the scenes were simply amazing. You can have a great venue but a rubbish team - The blakelands have got everything covered and are amazing at giving you the wedding venue of your dreams ?? From the silly things to the most important - they had it covered. Also a special thanks to Helen and Michelle - They went above and beyond on the morning of my wedding and sorted out my dress dilemma.. They didn’t need to but this is the kind, warming, caring People they are. So many of our guests commented on the high standard of service and food. We didnt get to eat on the evening - we woke the next day to find 2 plates of food from the Buffett wrapped up in our room, again - the silly things but just perfection. We would highly recommend The Blakelands to anyone looking for a high quality, Personal, professional, exceptional service and simply perfect.
The wedding of my dreams became reality

Our wedding day was 2 years in the planning and I must say it exceeded expectations. Where do I start nothing was too much for Blakelands and the day was perfect. The food was incredible and I must say when we returned from our honeymoon everyone said how stunning the venue was and how nice the food was!! We used a range of suppliers fir our big day all recommended by Blakelands and we could not fault any of our fabulous suppliers who worked with Blakelands to give us the day we had dreamt of. The morning of our big day started with the bridal party getting ready in Blakelands loft the parties went down a treat!! One of my bridesmaids indulged a little too much and she broke the zip on her dress however Blakelands were on hand to sew her into the dress! No job was too much for them
We feel so lucky
By Charlotte Ransom, on 08 Dec 2018Date of Wedding - 11 Aug 2018
After booking our wedding 27 months in advance it could be said there was plenty of time to build up our expectations of Blakelands. This is true. What is also true is that The Blakelands Team did not disappoint. From front of house, to food, to service, to house keeping, our day was perfect. This is not just another wedding ‘venue’. It has a heart and soul. We always felt lucky to be having our wedding in such a beautiful place as this and now we know...we were. ??
