The feel

Capturing your heart from the moment you arrive, Blackwell Grange has been a family home for generations, loved by its owners and steeped in history. In 2016, Blackwell Grange opened its doors as an exclusive-use wedding venue for your special day, sharing every wonder of the listed buildings and the land. Enjoy the characterful heritage, tranquil Cotswold location, contemporary, elegant interior design and exceptional attention to detail as you celebrate.

Over the past 400 years, the beautiful 16th-century Thatch Barn has become part of the Blackwell landscape. Lovingly restored, it is licensed for civil ceremonies with features including original oak beams and barn doors, a magnificent open fire and ambient lighting. Say your vows in this romantic, rustic barn before enjoying welcome drinks and canapes on the Apple Tree Lawn. Alternatively, you might choose to have a religious ceremony in one of the many picturesque churches in surrounding villages.

Dining and dancing take place in the contemporary Orchard Barn, with its floor-to-ceiling windows and doors, stylish bar, impressive dining space and mezzanine ‘chill out’ area. Here heritage and modern design collide and blend effortlessly together, bar stools made from tractor seats, and doors panelled with wood from the original water tower sit alongside a striking helical staircase and contemporary copper bar. Expert craftsmanship and exceptional interior design can be seen at every turn.

The expert on-site catering and events team will work with you to create an exceptional wedding breakfast that is unique to your special day. Delicious, fun and theatrical, this should be the most spectacular family meal you have ever enjoyed. When it comes to your evening celebration, delight your guests with food that is a visual and taste sensation, from live food stations to barbecues or wood-fired pizza in the Herb Garden.

With vast experience in planning weddings, your dedicated planners will be on hand from the moment you visit Blackwell Grange to help you create your perfect day. Whether you would like advice on local cake designers or suggestions on how to make the very best of this wonderful venue, they will be there, working together with you to turn your dreams into reality.

As the sun goes down, soak up the landscape, enjoying your evening party and looking out over the lawns at the illuminated trees in the Chestnut Dell. The luxurious Hayloft Honeymoon Cottage means you can stay, swathed in this idyll until morning, enjoying breakfast for two before you leave. Your guests will find a number of hotels in the surrounding villages and picturesque Cotswold towns, just a short journey from the venue.
