Can't thank you and your team enough for organising the day. It was the perfect balance of ceremony and fun. Everyone was blown away by the beautiful building and the way it lends itself perfectly to the occasion. Your attention to detail and relaxed approach helped the day go perfectly.

We were lucky to have Kerry helping us organise our wedding at Blackfriars, she's very professional, trustworthy and happy to go above and beyond. Made us feel at ease on our big day knowing that Kerry was there to deal with any problems. Happy to help out of hours and made it feel easy to ask questions. Love Mr & Mrs Bubb.

Great Staff
Venue Service

By Anona, on 03 Apr 2018Date of Wedding - 13 May 2017

Thank you for how absolutely outstanding all of the staff from Blackfriars were both beforehand and on the day itself. Both Ryan and Jason were so so helpful and nothing was too much trouble which just helped to make the day wonderful, and Sarah was just so helpful in putting our minds to rest before the day itself. We really couldn't recommend the venue highly enough, and that is really down to the team there. We'll be telling everyone we see how great it was.

We had a fantastic day!
