Our venue through the eyes of our Brides and Grooms
Want a perfect wedding? Want a fairytale wedding? Exactly what you have ever dreamed of? Don't want to feel like just another couple? Want a personalized experience? Want to feel special? Then Blackbrook House is the Wedding Venue for you.
The team at Blackbrook, are unbelievable. There are no words that could possibly explain how awesome these guys are, they can't do enough to help you. Their ideas are amazing. I wanted to push the boundaries of a 'traditional' wedding and they supported this and gave me some fantastic ideas and help to achieve the wedding I had always dreamed of.
The house itself is stunning all year round, and has a beautifully kept garden. My guests comments include "wow", "the attention to detail is fantastic", "best wedding ever", "so beautiful", "fantastic food", "I wish I had got married here".....the list goes on!! I can't recommended Blackbrook house enough, and I don't feel I can get across in this review just how much, and how grateful I am to the whole team, for my truly amazing day.
They are AWESOME.
Thank you so much,

My wife and I had the greatest day of our lives, the majority of which was spent at Blackbrook House where we so rightly chose to have our wedding reception.
From the first meeting with the team we knew we'd made the right decision. We arranged our wedding from overseas which makes it slightly different to being able to pop in to the venue in the lead up to the wedding. This wasn't an issue in the slightest as Jo and her team were able to assist every step of the way regardless of distance.
The day it self could not have been any better, from our arrival, the service of food and drinks and the welcoming of guests was exactly what we wanted. The wedding breakfast is up there with one of the best meals I have ever eaten and the quality of food and preparation was second to none. The evening food was also of an incredibly high standard. Not only did our guests comment on how amazing the venue looked but the food, service and staff were all complimented in abundance.
In summary, Jo, Lav, Kenny and the gang along with the venue, staff and service ensured we had a wedding day to remember, which we both truly feel was the best day of our lives. We will recommend Blackbrook House to everyone we know who is getting married. They go the extra mile to make the day personal and special whilst making you feel a part of the planning process. Huge thank you the Blackbrook House team. We had the greatest Wedding day and we're grateful for all that you did. x

To summaries, Blackbrook House is the best wedding venue in Derbyshire ever.
They are amazing. It was the first venue we visited, and all others that we saw afterwards were compared with it, and didn’t come close. We wanted to throw a ‘posh beer festival’ style wedding – relaxed, colorful, with live music and good beer, but with a high level of attention to detail. Blackbrook took this idea, and others that we came up with, and made them infinitely better, whilst still letting us get involved with our own creative bits.
They were so flexible and had such great, individual ideas, and we loved that there was no set package as the last thing we wanted was for our wedding to be the same as anyone else's. They took time to get to know us so that our day represented our personalities, and every time we visited we were made to feel special. They are also brilliant in an emergency should one arise (e.g.. snow! Or uninvited guests!)
Everyone at the House is so welcoming, that by the time our big day came around, the place felt like home. With a bride that’s a total perfectionist, we had only one complaint...that the day had to end!! Thank you Blackbrook for giving us amazing memories, we are still having guests comment on how good and different the day and the venue was. Fingers crossed Blackbrook enjoyed it as much as we did.

"Wow, the fantastic and talented team at Blackbrook House, gave us the ultimate dream wedding.... As a same sex couple, we were initially worried about choosing a venue, but when we 1st stepped into Blackbrook and met Jo, Lav and the team, we knew it was the only place for our special day.
From start to finish, the team could not have done any more for us, they inspired us with ideas, provided samples of Steve's delicious creations, which helped shape our theme for the day... Jo always went the extra mile and it felt like we were visiting friends when we had our regular meetings to discuss the day.
Lav, Kenny, Helen and Steve (the Chef) were all fantastic too and gave us a day we shall never forget... When we had a minor crisis 3 days before the big day, they went above and beyond to help us sort the issue before the day. Family and friends have all said it was the best wedding they have ever attended and if you want perfection, Blackbrook certainly is the wedding venue.... Can't wait to renew our vows!! XX"

What the team create just exceeded our expectations from start to finish. They give you a personalized day, to suit what you both want. We visited many venues where it was Menu A or Menu B and we felt like another couple on a conveyor belt of weddings. Blackbrook couldn’t be more different- they work hard so that your wedding is personalized to you, and Jo and Lav go to a lot of effort to genuinely get to you know you in order to give you the best day.
If you are after a wedding venue in derbyshire where the smallest detail matters and you want Michelin style food then this is the place for you, on the day so many of our guests were saying we had gone to so much trouble and I had to admit it was Blackbrook who had done everything for us, they even researched and made a Ukrainian wedding cake for us, which is by no means easy to do. During the 2 years of planning the wedding they were always available to respond to an email, or any request we had. They helped research flowers, transport- everything which wouldn’t normally be a venues responsibility. It’s no secret that weddings are expensive, but if you want to spend your money wisely and have stress free planning then I can’t recommend Blackbrook enough.
They are now definitely friends for life and we hope to have an occasion sooner rather than later so we can come back again- to any brides reading this, go and view Blackbrook meet Jo and Lav, book your wedding and you will not be disappointed.
