New Civil License gives Venue the Edge

New Civil License gives Venue the Edge

Date posted: 4th September 2014

Blakelands Country House, near Bridgnorth, are delighted to announce that they have been granted a new Civil Wedding License for their stunning Victorian Barn, making it one of the largest civil ceremony venues in the County!

The Victorian Barn, which was refurbished at the beginning of this year, can seat up to 100 guests, giving Brides-to-be a beautiful setting that is large enough to invite all of their friends and family.

Vicky Lowe and Alan Attwood from Cradley Heath, were the first lucky couple to hold their Civil Wedding Ceremony in the newly licensed Barn, last Friday (27th June).

The couple said today:

"Having our civil ceremony at Blakelands was a wonderful experience. The size of the Barn allowed us to have those additional family members join us personally during the service. We chose Blakelands, not only because it was a beautiful place with lots of character, but above all because the staff and management seemed more interested in our day, than how much money they could gain. We want to thank everyone at Blakelands for making our day so great."

This family-run business has been the home of the Morgan family for the last 33 years and has been a wedding venue since 1991, holding approximately 70 weddings a year. The family say they pride themselves in their personal service and giving every couple a bespoke experience, tailoring each wedding to the couple's needs and budget.

Paul Morgan, Owner said:

"Most of our bride and grooms immediately say that they would love to hold their ceremony out in the grounds, but of course there is always that question of ‘what do we do if it rains?’ Now that we have the Barn licensed, we have a ‘plan B’ and can offer them that peace of mind, that if it does rain, we have an equally stunning location."

Brides-to-be now have the choice of three different locations for their ceremony - outside in the beautiful grounds; in the main House or in the Barn.

The House and Barn is available on an exclusive-use basis, with a dining capacity of 120 guests and has accommodation for up to 30 people.

Blakelands Country House is located in Halfpenny Green, near Wombourne and is signposted off the A449 and A458. It is just 10 miles from Bridgnorth, 9 miles from Dudley and 10 miles from Wolverhampton (postcode DY7 5DP).
