What type of venue is Blackwell Grange and how old is the building?
Blackwell Grange is a breathtaking barn wedding venue in the Cotswolds, and parts of the venue date back to 1543. The family home of the Vernon-Millers for generations, the venue was initially a breeding stud for National Hunt racing and then a pedigree sheep farm. The latest incarnation of this idyllic setting is one of the finest wedding venues in the Cotswolds.
How long has Blackwell Grange been a wedding venue?
The venue has been open for around a year and a half following years of deliberation and planning. The project has been a real labour of love for the owners, and their commitment to making it extra special is clear in the result.
What is the capacity for a wedding ceremony and wedding reception at Blackwell Grange? What rooms are available for weddings?
Blackwell Grange can accommodate 150 guests for a ceremony in the Thatch Barn and 150 for breathtaking receptions in the Orchard Barn.
Couples can start their day in the Potting Shed; a private space that’s perfect for pampering before the ceremony. The four-hundred-year-old Thatch Barn provides an atmospheric setting in which to say ‘I do’, while the purpose-built Orchard Barn offers plenty of space to enjoy wedding breakfasts and receptions. It also comes complete with a stylish bar and secluded Snug – a mezzanine floor that provides guests with a quiet space that’s not too far away from the fun.
