The Venue

To give her day the most incredible location, Jen has picked the breathtaking Blackwell Grange as her venue, and it’s easy to see why.

“Blackwell Grange is the perfect venue to host your special day. It beautifully blends together a mixture of old and new, so it really ticks all the boxes. It’s aesthetically charming yet steeped in family history, bringing a sense of sentimentally throughout the décor and creating an inviting atmosphere. When you get married at Blackwell Grange, you really do become another chapter in their story.”

The Theme

From the historic Thatch Barn to the contemporary Orchard Barn and everything in between, Blackwell is full of character and exquisite style. To complement this, Jen would make sure that her chosen style would suit this idyllic setting down to a tee.

“Blackwell Grange suits all types of themes but for me, a beautiful, chic, romantic theme for my day would be ideal. The venue is naturally beautiful and as it is a purpose-built wedding venue, the design has been well thought out to offer everything you need all in one place. It also has the most amazing setting and peaceful location in the Cotswolds. To work with the design and stunning features of the venue, I would keep the colours very neutral. I think whites, greys and creams with lots of lovely foliage and candles would be great to emphasise the lovely atmosphere.”

The Look

“To really tie in my theme, I would have to choose a beautiful, elegant, simplistic wedding dress that I could complement with a lovely long veil and sparkling accessories. My bouquet would be made up of the same flowers from the floral decorations with maybe a pop a colour to stand out.”

“To complement the style and theme, I would choose a classic black tuxedo for the groom and groomsmen with a lovely simplistic buttonhole which would again match my flowers. For the bridesmaids I would pick beautiful, long dresses with floral crowns and pretty accessories to suit the country setting.”

“I am a big foodie and I think this is one aspect of your wedding that guests will truly remember so I would totally splurge on the food and drink. I like the whole traditional, formal sit-down meal and for me, one of the best parts of the day (after the ceremony of course) is being surrounded by your nearest and dearest and watching them enjoy the food and having a really lovely time.

“I would have a less formal option in the evening, and particularly love the idea of Galloping Gourmet’s wok food. The chefs specially prepare the food in front of your guests so it provides a great entertainment factor too. I think a fun drinks station, like a gin bar or cocktail station, would be the perfect way to keep the fun flowing.”

The Entertainment

Blackwell Grange has a delightful laid-back feel to it and Jen thinks that some soft music would be the perfect accompaniment in the day.

“For my ceremony, I would have an acoustic singer to work with the atmosphere in the Thatch Barn. I would have them play during our drinks reception and wedding breakfast too. On a lovely day you could open the bi-folding doors and really experience a lovely al fresco atmosphere and experience. For the evening I would have a singer or band as the Orchard Barn is such an amazing space to host an unforgettable party.”
