Some kind words

"To Gill, Florian and all the Wedding Team at Blackstock, We wanted to write to say thank you to everyone at Blackstock for arranging our wonderful wedding reception on the 1st December. The service we received from Blackstock was impeccable from our first visit. You were all unfailingly courteous, helpful and flexible. Planning our wedding was a pleasure and your team took all the stress out of the process. Thank you to everyone who was involved in the planning, especially Gill, for always answering emails promptly, for working so well with all our other suppliers and for going the extra mile. The day itself was everything we had hoped for only a thousand times more wonderful. Thanks to everyone who was present on the day, especially to Florian who led his team brilliantly. The staff were friendly, helpful and efficient, answering queries and requests promptly and courteously and looking after us and all our friends so beautifully. The venue was decorated magnificently by Joanne at Inspiration Decor and we would recommend her without hesitation. Thanks to Blackstock for putting up the Christmas Tree as well! The food was excellent and all our guests commented on how good it was. We were very impressed with the speed and efficiency with which the food was served, piping hot and delicious. Special thanks as well to Gill and the chefs for providing the groom with apple crumble! We had a luxurious and restful stay in the Goat Shed which is beautifully put together with excellent facilities and we'd recommend staying there to any bride and groom. All our friends commented on how special the day was and what a wonderful venue it was. Everyone at Blackstock deserves praise for working together so well, as a team to ensure we had the best day of our lives and that we started our marriage in a golden glow of warmth and happiness. You all helped to make that happen, and for that, we thank you. Very best wishes to you all and we hope everyone at Blackstock has a very happy Christmas and New Year." Emma and Richard Baxter, December 2019

"We had just an amazing day! It couldn’t have gone any better and was everything we had planned for and hoped it would be. I want to do the whole day all over again! Even the rain didn’t dampen the day. Huge thanks to Florin who was just brilliant on the day. He even helped our photographer Millie! He went above and beyond to ensure everything ran smoothly. Superstar. Also, a special mention to Alan who was great, another calming voice on the day and controlling a few who had too many beverages! Vikki was also super helpful on the morning. You have a wonderful team of staff at Blackstock. Nothing is too much trouble. So many people commented on finding a gem of a venue and everyone mentioned the food. One of my friends who doesn’t usually eat pork, raved about the hog roast. It was all just so incredible and I can’t thank everyone at Blackstock enough. Huge thanks to you Gill who helped with our wedding planning. You were such a wonderful help and nothing was too much trouble and prompt responses are so very much appreciated when you’re a bride trying to get stuff done! We had a few changes along the way and on the day but this was dealt with so easily, it makes a massive difference. I know without a doubt, we chose the best venue, it was all perfect. Thank you again so very, very much for what was an incredibly special day for us. " Sarah, Dan, Ethan & Seth, November 2018

"On behalf of my HUSBAND & I, we would just like to say a huge thank you for helping us create the most perfect wedding day bespoke to us. Your whole team were so friendly - something that all of our guests commented on! And we really felt that no request or email (of which there were many!) was dismissed or belittled. The food was incredible with so many of our guests agreeing that it was better than restaurant standard! I don’t think there was a single mouthful left on any plate. Gill and Andre helped us to feel so relaxed in what was a very stressful build up and Sarah and Florian were incredible on the day, making sure that everything went seamlessly. Karen always made us feel welcome and important and I really hope that we can stay in touch for a long time to come. We feel like part of the Blackstock family! We have genuinely fallen in love with Blackstock and you definitely haven’t seen the last of us! We just wish we could do our whole day all over again. " Mr & Mrs Gladwish, 4th November 2018

"Dear Gill. On behalf of Fran and myself, may we thank you most sincerely for the absolutely perfect organisation and attention to even the smallest detail of our wedding at Blackstock. It exceeded our expectations in every respect, nothing was overlooked or missed, altogether making it a more than memorable occasion for our wedding. The staff in attendance were always ready and on hand to do whatever was required. We have nothing but praise for the Blackstock organization in their understanding and empathy for couples on their Wedding day. " Alan and Frances, 1st October 2018

"We'd like to thank the entire team at Blackstock for making our special day so perfect. Both of the barns and the grounds are stunning. All of our guests had said what a beautiful venue we had chosen. The food was amazing and again our guests had commented on how nice it all was. The day ran smoothly and Ben and the team were very helpful throughout the whole day. We are so happy with everything and wouldn't hesitate to recommend Blackstock as a wedding venue. We will always look back on our day with amazing memories. " Mr & Mrs Mellett, 16th June 2018

"We’d like to thank Gill and the entire team at Blackstock for such a wonderful day. We didn’t have to worry about a thing and every aspect was seamless. I especially like to hear of the small acts of kindness that we did not see. For example, my nephew was upset and my brother in law was away from dinner for quite a while tending to him so a member of staff made sure his dinner was sent up to the cottage for him so he wouldn’t miss out. This sort of service is above and beyond and confirmed we had chosen the best venue. Not only this, but the grounds are beautiful and the cottages finished to a luxurious standard with plenty of space to get ready. " Chloe & Tom, 4th October 2018

"Now that things have calmed down on behalf of the newlyweds and myself I just want to say thank you to Gill and the team for the great job you did for Hannah and Drew’s wedding on Saturday. We’ve had so many compliments on the gorgeous venue, the great food, the atmosphere of the place and the way the day ran. Florin and Sarah worked very hard to ensure everything was as seamless as possible - even when I managed to mislay the key to the 3 bedroom cottage half way through the evening! (luckily my daughter had it as I gather there isn’t another one on-site). Sarah didn’t seem at all ruffled, bless her. Your security guard (I’m afraid I can’t remember his name) was also great, extremely friendly and couldn’t do enough to help - even bringing a jug of milk to the accommodation - I’m sure that’s not in his job description! I would like to finish though by saying a huge thank you once again. The day itself was fantastic and the staff worked hard to ensure that. If the weather stays good we’ll be bringing little Winry for another visit on a Sunday while the newlyweds are on their Honeymoon" Hannah & Drew, 29th September 2018

"I just want to write to say THANK YOU so so much for the wonderful, PERFECT day you created for my daughter Poppy and new son-in-law Sam on Friday 31st August. Everything was so seamless from beginning to end and what a fantastic venue (everyone commented on it). I shall be forever grateful that you helped make Poppy and Sam's day so special. My daughter had worked so hard and had been dreaming and planning her big day for many many years and to see it all come to fruition and see the smile which was glued on her face all day was all as a mother I could wish for. How you planned that weather too I'll never know!!! Thank you to each and everyone involved in making her day so special with memories to last a lifetime." Poppy & Sam, 31st August 2018

"Dear all I am so sorry I did not thank you all properly yesterday for the wonderful day you created for my daughter. I think my head was a little cloudy! Everything was exceptional, all your staff were so professional and helpful. The whole of the arrangements, food and the venue itself far exceeded my expectations. All my guests commented on what a fantastic venue we had chosen. All the children had a whale of a time and that meant relaxed parents. So from me and all my family thank you, thank you, thank you!" Jenny & Richard, 23rd August 2018

"We’d like to thank Gill (Wedding Coordinator) and the team at Blackstock for helping to create the most perfect day on Saturday, 4th August 2018. Gill helped throughout our planning to make it all so seamless and easy and was always happy to answer any emails or queries. We knew we wanted Blackstock the second we walked into the Tudor Barn and we’re so glad we chose it as our Venue. The guests complimented its beauty all throughout the day. Thanks to Ben (Operations Manager), who I hope gets better soon, and Florin (Front of House Operations Manager), for being amazing on the day with organising everything to run smoothly and efficiently. We didn’t have anything to worry about, and it’s all down to their professionalism. Thank you, and again we’re so happy we picked Blackstock as our Venue." Alex & Emma, 4th August 2018
