This year sees the launch of an exciting new Cotswolds wedding venue, Blackwell Grange in Warwickshire. A family home for generations, 2015 was the start of an inspirational new project, restoring the beautiful 16th century Thatch Barn to create a romantic ceremony space, and building the contemporary new Orchard Barn – a magnificent setting for your wedding breakfast and evening celebration.
With development of Blackwell Grange well underway – and all set to host its first weddings in May 2016 – we thought we’d take a look at the current progress of one of our favourite new venues.
The Thatch Barn
This 16th century barn had an air of romance from the second we set eyes on it. With its beautiful thatched roof and original beams it is the perfect setting for you to say your wedding vows. Alas it was just a little too rustic so work is underway to bring it in to the 21st century, while retaining all the original features. We’re imagining the beams adorned with fairy lights and welcome drinks on the lawn…we just can’t wait to see that first wedding ceremony!
The Orchard Barn
This stunning space will be the setting for welcome drinks, the wedding breakfast and evening celebrations at Blackwell Grange. In contrast to the Thatch Barn, the Orchard Barn is a completely new build. Impressive glass doors will enable guests to enjoy views over the acres of beautiful Warwickshire countryside as they dine, with exceptional food and service by caterers Galloping Gourmet. Building is never fun during the winter, so we’re delighted that spring is finally on its way!
Open Days at Blackwell Grange
We were delighted to host the first open day at Blackwell Grange in January. Interested couples were given a tour of the venue, while enjoying a hot chocolate and delicious pizza by Galloping Gourmet, fresh from the oven. If you missed the first open day, we shall be hosting a second on Sunday 21 February from 11am to 3pm. If you’d like the opportunity to be one of the first to see, first to choose and first to marry at Blackwell Grange, please register for your exclusive invitation.
