Blackstock Country Estate wedding venue in Hellingly, East Sussex is one of our fave wedding venues in Sussex. And it’s less than 15 minutes from our flat, so it’s officially one of our locals! They have two barns, a large terrace (oh, the sunsets!) and grounds full of animals you can say hello to.
Our fave things about Blackstock:
Blackstock Country Estate is one of my fave wedding venues because the staff really care about you, and are also super lovely. The grounds are awesome too – there’s a terrace (with one of the best sunsets of all the wedding venues I’ve shot at) and fields and ponds for photos – and for your guests to wander off to when they fancy some time out from small talk with the uncles.
The large dinner barn has great light – that makes for great photos!
- There’s a ‘getting ready’ room on site – in fact just a few steps away from the ceremony barn!
- There’s also accommodation across the terrace for the other half of the wedding party to get ready
- The terrace hosts the most epic sunsets
- There’s a pond for photos, and a golf buggy to drive down to it
Details about weddings at Blackstock
Blackstock is licensed to hold civil partnership and wedding ceremonies for up to 180 people in the cosy barn, which always has gorgeous fairy lights up. You can have dinner either in the same barn as the ceremony, or there’s another large bright barn for bigger weddings – we love this one because it’s so light and airy, and we can sneak up to the balcony for wider shots too. Plus, it has a lovely outdoor terrace with tables right outside, perfect for summer weddings, when you can drink in the last of the sunny rays over a cold beer.
There’s also a small balcony overlooking the bar, which is perfect for setting up a photobooth area – or taking a big group photo from if it’s raining!
