What an absolutely astounding day

Where do we start?! We came on to hitched as we were trying so long to find somewhere to host our reception and were at the end of our tether and sent out a cry for help as a last resort, we didn’t know you could actually do that on here. Anyway 10 minutes later I received a message from Lisa and Phil at Bridle and Groom.

It was surely divine providence as after having a 30 minute call with Lisa I was jumping around for joy and couldn’t wait to tell my fiancé as it was exactly everything she had always wanted. Sheep, donkeys, hay bales, marshmallows, local food, sustainability, an original canvas marquee (no plastic rubbish), fairy lights, the works. I was gobsmacked and when I told my partner she was over the moon.

Throughout the time between contacting these guys and the actual event Lisa was amazing with her communication. Every question asked (many times repeated) was answered quickly and with infinite patience. Things to be added that we forgot were not a problem. Accommodating is an understatement for Lisa and Phil, they are just amazing people who bend over backwards to make your day as special as it can be. They love what they do and it shows.

Fast forward to the actual day and words cannot express how amazed we were. The tables, the flowers, the cake, the venue…everything was just exceptional and all done by Lisa and Phil. Their staff are spot on and so attentive. The next day they also provide a breakfast whether you stay on site or not and want to go back for a get together and a good talk and trust me, the breakfast is awesome. We actually gave up our hotel breakfast so we could go back down to the farm to buy theirs. Nearly all the ingredients are theirs and it shows and I have never been offered so many sausages and bacon before! The reception and the breakfast, there was more food than you could ever eat.

For the price they charge you can see that they do this not just to make money but because they get joy from giving people the best day of thier lives. The value for money is just unbelievable.

We were so sad when it ended because we had such a fantastic time but we have gone back to see them and thank them. We wanted to have a catchup and they were pleased to see us and listened to us jabber on about how good the evening was.

To end this review I just have to say that if you are looking for an informal wedding and reception venue, are animal lovers and like traditional weddings and prefer a relaxing rather than stiff back wedding party then this is the place for you. It was just everything we wanted and more and it was perfect. We cannot recommend them enough and if you’re in two minds, don’t be. Just book it, you will not be disappointed!

My dream wedding made a reality

We got married at Bridle & Groom in August, and I cannot put into words how incredible Lisa, Phil and their team are. They were so helpful every step of the way, no detail was missed. They helped guide us with decisions we were struggling on, and helped bring our personalities to our wedding to make it unique to us. They made our wedding so fun, unique and perfect for us. She even went above and beyond to help incorporate some incredibly sentimental and emotional belongings in a beautiful way. I will recommend them to anyone and everyone who needs a venue! I still feel the flutters when I think of how perfect our wedding was. Thank you both x

A beautiful venue professionally run!

We had our dream wedding here at Blackwater Farm! The manager, Lisa, and her team went above and beyond to help us achieve an amazing day at very short notice. The venue is extremely rustic and picturesque, with a side helping of adorable farm animals - great for your photos! We couldn't be happier and wholeheartedly recommend Blackwater Farm for your special day!!

Absolutely Flawless

I found this Venue on Hitched for my wedding this year as a first wedding for them and only 12 week notice they pulled off an absolutely spectacular day, that was most definitely the best of our lives. Lisa and Phik went the extra mile to make our day Perfect and they had every little detail Covered. But best not Forget the Chef Helen cooked up a storm for our wedding breakfast and they even made our Cake and Bouquets. We would highly recommend this beautiful venue to anyone wanting a country wedding.
