Following your civil ceremony at Blackwell Grange, or religious ceremony in a local church, it is time to begin the celebrations!
As you greet each guest, we recommend serving welcome drinks and a delicious selection of canapés in your chosen location. If you are looking for luxury wedding venues, we hope Blackwell Grange satisfies every requirement, offering choice and opulence to enable you to celebrate your wedding, your way.
On a warm day, our beautiful gardens lend themselves to this joyous occasion. Guests will find themselves on the pretty Apple Tree lawn as they wander out of a ceremony in the Thatch Barn, or you might invite them to walk around to the Cider Lawn where they can also sit on the Orchard Barn terrace and enjoy the sunshine.
If the weather is less than ideal, reception drinks are generally served in the stylish, contemporary Orchard Barn bar, with its volcanic rock bar top and helical staircase leading up to the Snug. Alternatively, if the Thatch Barn has not been used for a civil ceremony, it makes a wonderful space to greet your guests on arrival at Blackwell Grange for your drinks reception.
Your wedding breakfast for up to 150 guests is served in the Orchard Barn. The pinnacle of every wedding here, this is the time when everyone gathers for an exceptional dining experience. Menus are created by the talented chefs at Galloping Gourmet and we pride ourselves on ensuring that the service is as impeccable as the food.
After dining, your guests might mingle on the terrace, or relax in the bar or the Snug. There is ample space in the Orchard Barn for your evening entertainment, whether that is a DJ or live band.
In the midst of your party, Galloping Gourmet show their talents once more by offering a delicious selection of evening menus. These less formal options include live food stations, barbecues and wood-fired pizza – a welcome indulgence for guests as they take a moment away from the dance floor!
