From the moment you catch a glimpse of Blackwell Grange Hotel wedding venue – a wonderful 1693 Georgian façade – you know you are somewhere special.

The Blackwell Grange Hotel wedding venue is a stunning 17th Century mansion, which enjoys an enviable setting in the beautiful County Durham countryside. Nestled in wooded parkland on the outskirts of Darlington and located between the North Yorkshire Moors and the Pennines, yet only forty-five minutes from the historic cities of York and Newcastle, Blackwell Grange provides a sanctuary to host the perfect wedding celebration.

Every couple dreams of a special and unique wedding like no other, one that will be talked about for many happy years to come. Whether you envisage saying “I do” in the newly refurbished Bruhenny Suite, or the glorious garden gazbo, The Blackwell Grange Hotel wedding venue has the settings to make your dream wedding a reality.

It’s an exciting time for Blackwell Grange Hotel wedding venue and future brides and grooms-to-be, as the Darlington venue, which has an illustrious history dating back to 1693, is currently embarking on a multi-million pound refurbishment. This development aims to preserve the hotel’s unique character while transforming the historic areas into a more contemporary country house style.

So, far the Bruhenny Suite has been refurbished, making it a light, airy room flooded with natural daylight. A staircase within the room leads you to the Bruhenny Bar, which has been completely transformed and offers an extensive drinks menu. The suite now presents a show-stopping fireplace, perfect as a wedding ceremony feature, as well as all new modern but authentic interiors. This magnificent suite can accommodate up to 140 guests by day and 200 by night.

Couples can also choose from the George Allan Suite with its traditional décor looking south over the grounds has direct access to the gardens and our stunning Wedding Gazebo giving you the perfect fairytale backdrop for those most important photographs. Along with private use of The Blackwell Bar, this suite can accommodate up to 80 guests by day and 130 guests by night.
