    Better than we could ever have imagined!

    From the moment we pulled upto Blakelands we knew it was the venue for us. It is just so beautiful.
    It's a family run business and you can honestly tell they love what they do. All the staff were amazing. They pay so much attention to even the smallest of details, which makes all the difference. The day itself was so well organised and so relaxed. I hired the bridal loft to get ready with my girls and it was the best decision as we were all in one place and had a lovely breakfast package.
    The food was amazing and the few food allergies we had were so well catered for with no issues.
    Overall we had the most perfect day and given the option to do it again we would choose Blakelands every time.

    Our March wedding

    My husband and I got married here in early March and everything from the get go was just so effortless and easily done for all the staff at Blakelands. It’s obvious that it’s a beautiful location and it has stunning rooms for overnight but the biggest part of it is the staff. Everything ran like clockwork on the day and even beforehand. Chloe is a brilliant planner and is so helpful at any time of the day. Paul and Heather are wonderful, Paul supported us the whole way through the day ensuring we were okay and our guests were okay. The food is incredible, the transaction from day to night in one room is flawless, again down to all the ‘behind the scenes’ staff. We’re so happy we had our special day here and we’d relive it over and over if we could, we can’t thank everyone there enough. Blakeland’s is a real special place.

    We Love this venue!

    We just wanted to say a huge ‘Thank you’ to all of the staff at Blakelands for making our wedding day so perfect. 10.09.2021. This was our fourth wedding date due to COVID restrictions and the staff could not have been more helpful or accommodating during our wedding planning. The grounds are absolutely beautiful and we fell in love with the venue from the first time we visited back in 2018. The bridal loft was a huge selling point for me for getting ready on the morning of our wedding!

    The day itself went so smoothly and the whole team were so well organised to ensure all of our bridal party and guests were well looked after. The reception and evening food was delicious and all of the guest rooms including the bridal suite were decorated beautifully. There are so many beautiful places for photo opportunities both inside and out of the venue we were spoilt for choice.

    We have visited Blakelands on many occasions for their wedding Fayres, open days etc and have always enjoyed our visits and feel we have got to know Chloe, Heather, Paul and the team during our long engagement! We know that anyone looking to book Blakelands as a wedding venue in the future will have the BEST experience as we really can’t recommend this wedding venue and the Blakelands staff enough! Thank you for all you have done for us over the past few years - we wish we could do our whole day again with you!

    Blakelands was our perfect match

    We knew we wanted to book Blakelands as soon as we arrived on our first visit. Naturally, we were impressed by how beautiful the place is - with the gorgeous gardens, the different rooms, the swing, lake, wildflowers and fairy lights, you can picture your ceremony and how good your photos will look immediately! But it wasn’t just that - it was how friendly and welcoming the team were. No question was silly, and they understood our ideas and made them come to life without faff. I’ve been told how smoothly our day went, but it was honestly nothing to do with me - the Blakelands team managed everything and ensured we had the perfect day. The food was GLORIOUS and the rooms were so comfortable - we truly felt spoilt. The little touches from the team throughout the day meant so much to us, from tips to calm the groom down, to arranging my dress, to saving us some food in the bridal suite for after the madness was over. Every member of the team makes you feel like family. You will have the perfect wedding at Blakelands - they don’t settle for less :)

    What a venue!

    You really couldn’t ask for a better wedding venue. It’s so beautiful and the whole team are amazing. We had our day rearranged due to covid and we couldn’t of asked for a better supportive venue to get us through the stressful times. On the day itself, the team couldn’t do enough for us and our guests and made the day go so smoothly with us not having to worry about a thing. Every guest commented on how amazing the food was and we really wouldn’t of changed a thing. We also love how the venue is a family run business so you really do get to build up a connection with them when planning your big day. The big bonus is you can stay over in the beautiful rooms and enjoy breakfast the next day. We really couldn’t of asked for a better venue.

    Blakelands Country House's reply:

    Thank you ever so much Sasha!! Hope you and Josh are doing well!

    All our love always,

    The Blakelands Team xx

    Perfect venue for our perfect day - Sep 2021

    Blakelands is the most amazing venue and made our wedding day so special. The day itself flown by but it was the best day of our lives and for the most part, this was down to Blakelands. They are truly amazing at what they do and we can't thank them enough, not only for such an amazing venue but all the way down to the finer details - they really do think of everything! Especially with Covid, we moved our date twice with ease and caused no additional stress for which we are very grateful for! Stunning venue and such an incredible team xx

    A beautiful, picturesque venue for a wedding

    Blakelands Country Home is idyllic, such a peaceful and beautiful venue to get married in. The outside gardens are so picturesque. Our ceremony was in the garden and it was beautiful! The home has kept it's traditional furnishings and decor but the barn is modern and both are lovely settings for the ceremony or reception. The team that work there are all so lovely and with many date re-arranges due to covid there were extremely understanding. At the time our baby had just turned 1 and they were well set up for pushchairs/wheelchairs. They offer lots of help with local company's that can provide flowers, cake, entertainment etc. We had the most perfect day and we would recommend any couple looking for a venue to visit Blakelands and the team. The team all show a genuine happiness for all the couples getting married.

    Happy Couple

    I would like to thank the team at Blakelands on behalf of my new wife and myself. We had an amazing couple of days at the venue - the team could not have done any more to make this the truly wonderful experience it was. We have photographed at this venue many times over the years and for us it was the only choice when looking for a venue for our day. The venue is stunning, the food is always amazing and the service you get is second to none. Thank you to everybody for making our day so special for us. Look forward to seeing you all again soon ...... cameras in hand next time.
