Chloe & Ray 18 October 2021

23rd November 2021

Chloe & Ray’s Reception At Blackstock Estate

Chloe and Ray had their wedding reception as well as their ceremony with us here at Blackstock Estate on Monday, 18 October 2021. The only thing that didn’t run smoothly was the weather but when we say they made the most of it we truly mean they did. The photos taken by Philip Bedford Wedding Photography from their wedding are absolutely enchanting and make the day look as magical as it was beautiful.

With exclusive use of both the Tudor Barn and The Granary, Chloe enjoyed having use of the make-up room, with Ray arriving a little later.

The Big Day

The ceremony was beautiful and enjoyed by all, with a personal touch of the bride’s brother playing the guitar. Afterwards, the couple wandered over to The Granary to be welcomed in by all their guests.

Their day continued with them sharing a ride on the back of the Blackstock Buggy where the photographer captured some wonderfully fun action shots of the happy couple together.

The Wedding Breakfast

The guests were all seated for a delightful 4-course meal. Consisting of delightful mini halloumi, roasted pepper and sun-blushed tomato skewer, rocket pesto canapes.

A goats cheese, roasted butternut squash and artichoke tart was served as a starter with a baby spinach and rocket salad and a salsa verde dressing; and received very well by all.

This was followed by a delicious mixed grill; a fillet of beef, crispy lamb shoulder, olde English sausage, caramelized mashed potato with green beans and cherry vine tomatoes. Alternatively, guests could opt for tempura halloumi, falafel cake served with roasted provencal vegetables and rocket pesto.

To top it all off a pear almond tart with vanilla pod ice cream, almond praline and butterscotch sauce was served for dessert. Delicious!

Lots of wonderful photographs were taken. Everyone enjoyed spending time on the Blackstock patio areas; with all the fabulous Sussex countryside views that we are very proud to have. With much laughter and a few drinks drunk; all the guests later ventured back into The Tudor barn to enjoy their evening.

The evening

A wonderful day was topped off by scrumptious fish and chips in a cone and Monterey Jack cheeseburgers for everyone.

A DJ played all evening and everyone danced the night away at what was a very happy occasion.
