Beyond dreamy!
Venue Service

By April & Daniel, on 25 Jun 2019Date of Wedding - 27 May 2019

My new husband and I cannot recommend The Parlour at Blagdon enough. Even on a rainy day it’s still perfect. Our guests were really impressed with how much the venue had to offer. Each member of staff were truly lovely, very relaxed and helped make it a super enjoyable day! Up until the day they were always there to help with any queries big and small. The resident DJ on the evening was really friendly, he catered for everyone and mixed in lots of our requests. The food was amazing and the chefs took on board our guests dietary requirements. Thank you to the Parlour for making our day truly unforgettable, we wish we could do it all again!

Highly recommend The Parlour at Blagdon. It was a fantastic place for our wedding on 23rd May.

Dream wedding venue

By Amy & Mark, on 23 Jun 2018Date of Wedding - 02 Jun 2018

We had our wedding here on 2nd June, Married in the old smithy building and everything was a dream. The staff were amazing, organised, helpful and very friendly, could not do enough for us and our guests. The food was also top quality, delicious :) Most of our guests did not know of The Parlour and left loving the place, they could not believe how we found such a rustic, pretty venue, gem of a venue. We also highly rated the resident DJ, provided excellent dancing songs all night! Thank you to The Parlour for our truly unforgettable day.

Dream wedding venue

I had my dream outdoor wedding at the parlour. We were married outside in their court yard surrounded by birds singing. The venue is amazing, we took our own decorations and along side theirs it looked amazing. Our guests were blown away at the little jewel we found. The food was top quality and also the staff who were fantastic. If you want an amazing romantic special place that still feels untouched then this is it.

By Sarah & Chris Brown, on 09 May 2018Date of Wedding - 05 May 2018

We fell in love with The Parlour immediately and booked up straight away. We loved the relaxed, rustic feel of the place and it suited what we wanted perfectly. Molly was great in the lead up to the day making sure that she was on hand for any queries we had. The day itself was incredible. Hottest bank holiday on record which meant it was the perfect place for some shots in the gardens. The food (as always) was fantastic. All the guests commented on how delicious it was and loved that they could choose what to eat. The day ran so smoothly which is a credit to all the staff and management. We wish we could do it all again as it truly was the best day of our lives.

The best day!

By Jen and Ant, on 21 Oct 2018Date of Wedding - 21 Apr 2018

As soon as we saw The Parlour, we knew it was the venue we wanted to celebrate our wedding at. It was so pretty, it had such a lovely, laid back, vibe and we just loved the courtyard and the idea of using the different buildings for different parts of the day. Molly, Stewart and all of the team were an absolute dream to work with, in both the lead-up and the day of the wedding. They were so accommodating of all of our ideas and couldn’t do enough for us! They always met us with a smile and everything ran smoothly. The day itself was beautiful, it was the first real day of spring so the courtyard was a perfect setting for our guests to be greeted with Pimms, cocktails, and canapes. After the wedding breakfast, everyone spilled back outside to enjoy the last few hours of the daylight before full party mode commenced and everyone got busy dancing in the Willow Room or sang their hearts out in The Parlour where we hosted the karaoke! The food was absolutely delicious! We went for a menu tasting a few months earlier where Stewart discussed the food with us and paired the wine. It was difficult to pick as everything tasted amazing and the presentation was something else! The chefs really took on board all of the dietary requirements of our guests and went above and beyond to prepare something that everyone was happy with. We were overwhelmed with the feedback from our friends and family about the venue and the food and how everyone felt very looked after. It couldn’t have gone better and we’ve got so many special memories. Thank you again to all of the staff for creating the most wonderful setting to our special day!

By Mr and Mrs Wallace, on 15 Aug 2017Date of Wedding - 11 Aug 2017

We had the perfect wedding day at the Parlour and couldn't recommend it enough. In the planning months, Molly was so helpful and answered all our questions quickly. On the day, all the staff were so kind and friendly and couldn't do enough to help us whilst not being overbearing at all. The food was to die for (as always) and the portion sizes massive. So many of our guests commented on the beautiful venue and the irresistible food. I wish we could do it all again!

Perfect day at The Parlour
Venue Service

By John and Claire Lillie, on 06 Jun 2017Date of Wedding - 02 Jun 2017

We only had 3 months to plan our wedding. After visiting the Parlour, we knew the laid back feel and competent, confident approach that Molly had was perfect for us. We had regular meetings with Molly to ensure plans were still on track and any changes we made were implemented without issue. The entire venue was ours for the whole day, we even had plenty of time the day before the wedding to hang bunting, lights and add our final little touches. On the day itself, Molly and all of the staff were amazing from start to end, the food was fantastic and the venue magical. We would thoroughly recommend this venue for couples who want a relaxed, informal day in beautiful gardens in Northumberland.

Just perfect!!
Venue Service

By Kate and Ian Simpson, on 16 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 15 Oct 2016

We got married here in October and it couldn't have been a more perfect day. The staff were brilliant and so helpful from helping us plan how we wanted things to go, to making sure the big day went off without any problems. I phoned up a few times before the wedding with questions and requests and they were able to answer straight away. We wanted quite an informal wedding with no speeches or announcements and the staff were more than happy to accommodate and go with what we wanted. Lots of our guests commented on how lovely the food was and the ones with children were particularly impressed with the kids' menu options. We also got a lot of comments afterwards about how beautiful the Parlour is and a few plan on going back for meals and afternoon tea. It really did look gorgeous, especially when lit up at night. When setting up the room the day before, we even had a little chat with one of the gardeners who explained that they try and match the outside displays with the colour schemes of the wedding. It's the little touches like this that made it such a perfect and memorable day. If I could get married here again, I would!

We had our wedding ceremony and reception at The Parlour and it was amazing. Staff were fantastic both in the run up and on the day. The food and setting were perfect and everything went completely smoothly, largely due to the organisation and the staff there. All our guests commented on how good the food was and how lovely the venue is. I'd definitely recommend for a wedding. Thank you so much for helping to make our wedding day so perfect.

The Ridley Wedding
Venue Service

By Stacey and Andrew, on 15 Nov 2016Date of Wedding - 03 Sep 2016

Andrew and I had a very clear idea of they style of wedding we wanted; relaxed, personal and a really good party. We had struggled to find this in the North East, however, from the moment we met Nigel and Martin at Newcastle Racecourse's wedding fair, we knew we had a contender on our hands, A week later we had confirmed our booking. Nigel, Martin and the rest of the team went above and beyond to make sure we had the perfect wedding day and we could never thank them enough for everything that they did for us. We battled with the rain on the day itself but the team had thought of everything and we had a brilliant time. All of our guests commented on the food in particular and everyone, including us, had the time of their lives. Thank you so much to the team, we couldn't have done any of it without you!
