Nothing was too much trouble!
Our wedding was held at the Blakelands on 29th November 2019. We fell in love with the Blakelands during our first visit. We can’t thank Chloe, Heather & Paul enough for making our day so special. A special thank you to Chloe who was always there to answer ALL of my questions and to offer me reassurance. Nothing was too much trouble. Everything ran smoothly throughout the whole day. The food was amazing and the staff were all so friendly & welcoming. Many of the guests commented on the grounds, the food and the service. We really couldn’t have asked for more. Thank you. Mr & Mrs Smith. James & Amy 😊

It was incredible!!
We had our wedding here on February 16th and to put it simply, it was incredible. Every single one of the team were beyond friendly, extremely helpful & did everything in their power to ensure our day was perfect. Everything from the food, to the venue, the rooms & the general atmosphere was amazing. I started to get a little nervous, Paul calmed me straight down and ensured me that everything was okay and they made sure we had everything we wanted. The venue us simply stunning & hardly required any decoration as it's beautiful on it's own. We really couldn't fault it, even with storm Dennis setting in on our day, it didn't matter! I attended almost every open day they had as I just couldn't get enough of the place! If you're looking for a wedding that's relaxed, beautiful, bespoke & with incredible staff, this is most definitely the place for you! Thank you to everyone at Blakelands for all the wonderful work you did for us, it's a day we will never forget 💍🤵🏻👰🏻🥰
