Perfect Day

From start to finish our wedding was amazing. Everything we dreamt of came true with Blakelands. The venue is gorgeous and the staff are so helpful and supportive. Nothing was too much trouble and everything was so simple and stress free. The day ran smoothly and I felt really looked after. We didn’t want it to end.

Amazing experience from start to finish.

Since booking Blakelands 2 years ago nothing has been too much trouble for Heather, Paul, Chloe & team. From the smallest little questions to the biggest.
The day was an absolutely perfect & we couldn’t have asked for anything more. All of our guests commented on how beautiful the venue was & how stunning the food was! I would a million percent recommend this venue to any future couples. It was literally the best day of our lives ❤️

Rebecca & Dan 27.07.2022

We got married here in July and it was honestly everything we could hope for. The staff were so friendly and worked so hard to make our day run smoothly. We honestly could not fault a single thing.

We spent the past 2 years preparing for our day and with the help of Heather, Paul, Chloe and the team they made our dream wedding come to life.

The venue worked so hard alongside all of our chosen supplies to make this day possible and was always 100% honest with us of what could and couldn’t work when we threw ideas at them and how they could accommodate to what we wanted.

So for anyone looking at the Blakelands we definitely both recommend this as a wedding venue to consider.

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!

Amazing venue

The food was amazing too we had so many compliments afterwards, especially our veggie/vegan guests saying it was the best food they’ve ever had at a wedding. Amazing team and really lovely people, so happy we chose Blakelands as our venue!
