Back in September I styled a beautiful wedding at The Parlour at Blagdon. This was the first time I’d visited this venue and I was honestly blown away by what they have on offer.
Nigel, the owner, has transformed what used to be a garden centre into a gorgeous space with a relaxed atmosphere while delivering top quality customer service. The bistro on any normal day serves up breakfasts lunches and even dinner but this is literally transformed for your ceremony into a room with bags of character.
There is then a dedicated function room across the courtyard called The Willow Room which can seat around 90 people and has it’s own bar inside. This room is an ideal reception room and the wooden beams give loads of options for room decor. Think fairy lights, paper lanterns, bunting, floral installations and more.
What impressed me most about this venue the first time I was involved with a wedding there was the standard of service on offer. The team are trained to offer a high quality service that you would expect in a 5 star hotel and yet the atmosphere is friendly, relaxed and informal. This is a combination that’s hard to find elsewhere in the north east. The food looks pretty good too!
If you’ve already got your wedding venue booked then how about an afternoon tea hen party? The Parlour specialise in afternoon tea and have plenty of private spaces that you can book for a girly get together.
