09/02/24 - Our Wedding Day

Where do I start... from originally booking our wedding for 09/11/24 to pulling it forward to 09/02/24 with around 4 months notice, it was perfect & everything that we could've asked for.

The communication between the sales team and ourselves was second to none, they were always on hand, responding to emails (a special shoutout to Naomi).

The venue was so rustic in itself, you didn't really have to do much to it as you would a hotel or something similar, it's already so naturally beautiful. The converted 'Smithy' held such a special place in our hearts, meaning before we even went to view the venue, we were already set on booking and having our day there.

The food was tremendous, our guests absolutely loved our menu choices and loved them even more on the day when they got to sit down & have it served to them. The whole day was just as we'd imagined. A side note on breakfast the next day for guests that stayed overnight, again was beautiful & great quality.

The venue as a whole was tidy, clean, exactly as you'd expect. The bridal suite was spacious and I loved the fact you had a separate bathroom which again was very spacious.

We absolutely loved our day, like most we'd do it again in a heartbeat & I'd honestly say if you're considering the Parlour, look no further.

Thank you so much for everything!

The Newlyweds,

Mr & Mrs Thompson

The Most Magical Winter Wedding in a Perfect Venue

Our winter wedding at the Parlour was simply perfect! The venue is gorgeous anyway but with snow on the ground and the Christmas trees all lit up for our wedding on the 2nd December, it looked even more magical. What makes the venue extra special however, is not the fixtures and fittings, or the delicious food, but the amazing team! From Naomi and the team in the sales office, to everyone who looked after us on the day, to the fabulous Roseanne our Master of Ceremonies, they could not be faulted. So attentive, so caring - world class hospitality!

Amazing day

We fell in love with the venue from the moment we saw it. It has a relaxed, intimate vibe with a beautiful courtyard and buildings.

All the staff who we met and were involved were outstanding. The day was so much more than we expected. We had so many guests commenting on the venue and the food was unbelievable!

Thank you so much to The Parlour!

The Parlour at Blagdon


The Parlour at Blagdon was the perfect venue for our mid afternoon wedding which continued on until midnight. The staff were amazing, attending to our every need and they made sure the day went smoothly. We had meetings with the Parlour staff leading up to the date, this allowed us to customise events and to make sure everything was set to plan. The venue is a welcoming and relaxing place to enjoy your day with guests using the three indoor areas and the courtyard outside. The picturesque grounds provide photo opportunities at every turn. We would definitely recommend this venue for weddings.

Perfect day

We had the best day celebrating our wedding at The Parlour!! Straight away from our first viewing the staff were all lovely and professional, all the little details were considered and everything went so smoothly on the day. So many guests commented on how beautiful the venue is and the lovely relaxed feel. They were very accommodating with any requests such as dietary requirements and liaised directly with suppliers so we didn’t need to worry about anything.

Such a perfect day!

The Parlour was the only venue we viewed and as soon as we walked in we knew it was the one. All of the staff were really friendly and we felt we could ask any questions and tailor the day completely to how we wanted it without any fixed package or set costs. It is truly beautiful and needs very little decoration. All of our guests were blown away on the day. A huge thank you to Rosanne who was our MOC and was honestly just perfect. She put us totally at ease and made the whole thing run seamlessly - it couldn't have been less stressful. We would 100% recommend the venue. From staying in the cottage the night before, waking up and having hair and make up in the bridal suite and the ceremony and reception - the whole thing was stunning from start to finish.

Couldn’t recommend more!

Me and my husband got married at the parlour on the 2nd March. From booking, to the wedding and beyond the whole team have been amazing, they did everything they could to meet our needs and exceeding our expectations. All of our guests were thoroughly impressed and couldn’t compliment the staff and the venue enough. The food was beautiful and the service was impeccable. A beautiful wedding venue and we couldn’t recommend them enough for any occasion

A dream wedding

The staff at the Parlour have been so flexible and supportive from start to finish. Our wedding Package in Feb included everything we needed and everyone had such a great time. It's all very professional, yet elegant and laid back, all in one!

The Parlour

My husband and I were married at the Parlour 01/11/2022 and had the most fabulous and stress free day! This venue was the first and only venue we visited and within the first 5 minutes of stepping through the door we had both given each other the “this is the one” face! The place has a very rustic feel and is gorgeous without decoration! The whole process from start to finish was made so easy and despite us only starting plans 9 weeks in advance it was made to seem effortless - just how we like it! I could not pick one fault with the day, the staff were so welcoming and helpful, nothing was too much trouble (our MoC Becca in particular was so lovely - I felt like I had an instant best friend at my side despite having no friends attending at all!) On that note, we had a very intimate family wedding (only 18 guests) - we thought we would struggle to fill the space only having a small amount of guests but it worked perfectly. The food was beautiful, and the recommended suppliers we used (The Little Flower House & resident DJ) were also fantastic! 100% recommend.

The Best Day Of Our Entire Lives - Best Team Ever!

Me & My Husband were married here on 26th September 2022, We fell in love with this venue after being invited to a wedding here last December the moment i stepped into the venue I fell in love the Rustic, Cosy feel the environment is perfect especially as we wanted a very close and intimate wedding, The Parlour is truly beautiful, my event stylist and I worked together to decorate the venue (not that it needs much decorating as it is already stunning) every single guest complimented the venue and staff, No ask was too big, food was delicious (My husband even asked for seconds and the chef went out his way to cook more!) we also are a family of food intolerances with both me and my husband and some family being gluten free & my husband was low fodmap but once again they went out their way to assure the food there was gluten free and very tasty! The process of planning and booking the venue was quick and easy and our Master of ceremony was the most lovely down to earth person ever she was very professional and made sure everything went as smoothly as possible, Even my wonderful suppliers mentioned how much they loved this venue! The Night time Dj was amazing too super friendly guy who we felt like we had known for ages! perfect choices and people were dancing all night! - We opted for the post box & sweet table highly recommend perfect place to keep your cards safe and the sweet table had a lot of choice and was a huge hit especially after a few people had drinks!

The Bridal Suite was also another highlight of our wedding, for me having a beautiful to place to be pictured getting ready to then being able to spend our first night in a lovely room after being married.

We can't thank the parlour enough, everything was perfect and so much thought went into making sure everything went smoothly.

From Mr & Mrs Tate
Thank you

Amazing venue!

I don’t know where to start on expressing how amazing The Parlour at Blagdon is!

The Parlour was the first and only wedding venue we saw before booking. We knew instantly after visiting it was everything we wanted for our wedding. A quirky, laid back venue with beautiful surrounds. It just felt perfect for what we wanted and so we didn’t hesitate to book.

All of the staff are absolutely amazing. On the run up to the wedding, they were so responsive to any and every query That we had. Nothing was too much of a problem for them and they even managed to accommodate for a number of fussy eaters that we had. They offered plenty of guidance, listened to all of our plans for our big day and helped to ensure that our day went according to our wishes. On the day it self the co-ordinators ensured that everything ran perfectly and we didn’t have to worry about a single thing all day. The day was managed so well by the co-ordinators that we even managed to run bang on schedule. We had the most amazing wedding because we got to live in the moment with all of our guests. The staff were even so kind as to save us some canapés whilst we were off getting our photos done!

We lost count of the amount of guests that told us that the serving staff, food and resident dj were all absolutely amazing also! The food was so gorgeous even our well known fussy eaters in the family were full of compliments. We had loads that we wanted to include in the evening such as a Mr & Mrs game, first dance with my grandparents and an outfit change before the first dance with my husband. The dj took all of this on board and made sure it all flowed seamlessly, and our guests had an absolute blast throughout the night.

If you’re thinking about booking with The Parlour - absolutely do it, you won’t regret it!

June 22 Wedding

Where can I start with the Parlour. From the moment we arrived for our first viewing I knew it was the venue for us.

I loved how quant and secluded it was, we literally felt like we were in our own little world. We loved how the venue is made up of different buildings and seating areas. This meant there was seating for everyone, indoors and out.

From the beginning, the Parlour team were so supportive and checked in with us regularly. They were always quick to reply to my many questions.

The day of the wedding everyone commented on how good the food was, we loved the fact we got to give our guests three options to choose from. The bar and waiting staff were amazing, the Secret Garden Cocktail was a massive hit.

We were really lucky that by the time our wedding came round there had been some updates to the venue including the new seating area and pergola, this was great for picture taking.

Overall the day was a great success and the Parlour were brilliant. We would happily recommend them to anyone!
