Getting married at Blackstock Country Estate

4th April 2022

Here at Blackstock Country Estate, we are proud to be one of the most popular barn wedding venues in East Sussex. We have 2 gloriously restored barns available for your big day as well as a selection of on-site accommodation to make your stay with us that much more special. We are located in the heart of the stunning Sussex countryside with acres of land available for some beautiful photos. We also get some marvellous sunsets which we love to share on Instagram.

Both our Barns are available for use on your big day and we optimise both to suit your needs and vision. Our Tudor Barn is where the ceremony would take place. This beautiful, old building has a rustic yet modern feel with its array of ancient oak beams arching over an expansive space. There is additional lighting and decor available; we support you every step of the way to make your day exactly how you envision it.

Our Granary Barn is much larger than our Tudor Barn and fits up to 120 guests for your wedding. This makes it perfect for your wedding breakfast directly after the ceremony.

After the wedding breakfast, we invite your guests back to the Tudor barn where you can enjoy your reception deep into the evening. This is perfect for you and your guests as everything will be seamless and as smooth as possible.

 

Wedding Ceremony

If you get married at Blackstock you will be married in the Tudor barn. With over 500 years of history and character in the walls, it makes a perfect location to mark such a momentous occasion. Our team ensures that the barn is maintained to the highest of standards all year round. It is in an L-shape, making it a superb entrance for the bride as she walks down the aisle to her future partner. The barn offers a really intimate atmosphere no matter how many people are in attendance.

If you have your ceremony at Blackstock Estate, please make sure you find out more about the bridal room you can use to get ready in. It really builds excitement and means you are on-site throughout your day. You could even stay with us the night before! As if you couldn’t be more excited already!

As we are licensed, you can also choose which celebrant you would like to conduct your service. It will make this even more special for you! With the Tudor Barn looking stunning, there are some amazing photo opportunities for you to remember your day with.

You can also decorate the barn with flowers, light, lanterns etc etc, whatever look you would like to create.

Catering

We have a team bursting with experience and talent. We offer a wide range of options from whole Sussex roast pig, BBQs, champagne afternoon tea, plus the more traditional three or four-course Wedding Breakfasts.

No matter what tastes or dietary preferences we need to cater for our friendly and attentive catering team will deliver an excellent service 100% of the time.

Wedding Reception

Once the magical ceremony has concluded everyone will be invited out onto the patio area where you can enjoy the mystical views of the rolling Sussex hills. Later you will be invited into the Granary, where guests will be seated in preparation for the Wedding Breakfast. A beautiful menu will be written up with the help of our catering team and expert chefs. Our catering menu is delightful and you certainly will find it hard to choose your menu!

The Evening Celebrations

Once everyone has finished their meals and enjoyed the wonderful speeches everyone will be invited back into the Tudor Barn where the party will be waiting. Your chosen DJ and any other entertainment will be held here. Some people have a live band, which can make for a really beautiful first dance but the choice is completely up to you.
