What Couples Say

“Blackfriars was one of the first wedding venues me and my Husband viewed, and we fell in love with it straight away, booking it 2 years in advance! We are both so happy that we made the decision to have our wedding in Blackfriars as it was everything we hoped for, and more! The team at Blackfriars were so helpful and guided us through all the planning along the way and went above and beyond when we had an issue with our caterers early in our planning. All venue visits were relaxed and they answered any questions we had. Our wedding planner even managed to arrange for a local, alcohol-free IPA to be supplied on our day for our alcohol-free guests and ensured that all the alcohol in our drinks package was vegan for us! The garden games went down so well with our guests to use in the sunny courtyard, and it was amazing to see all our family & friends having the best time. We loved all the extra touches that were provided like fairy lights, downlighters and candles and this made the venue look even more beautiful! The staff were fabulous on the day and made us feel so well looked after. All of our guests continue to comment on how beautiful and unique Blackfriars is as a venue too (which is the reason we booked it!) and how they also found all the staff so helpful on the day. We can’t praise Blackfriars highly enough and would highly recommend booking your wedding or event here!

What Couples Say

lackfriars was the perfect place for our wedding. The team are so helpful and friendly a lot of the stress in organising such an important event was taken away. Every question we had was answered quickly. All venue visits were relaxed and we weren’t made to rush. All the hard work that the team put in both before and on the day was so appreciated and the day was perfect. We honestly could not recommend the venue and the team more highly. Thank you Blackfriars!”
