Fab Venue
I would highly recommend the Parlour to anyone looking for a perfect wedding venue. The staff are exceptional. The Venue is delightful. The food incredible.

We had so many compliments off our guests saying they loved the food. Nothing was too much trouble for any of the members of staff. (I hope I've got these names right) A special Thank You to Stu who looked after us on our wedding day & to Ashleigh who was just absolutely lovely with our little girl who wasn't feeling very well, going above and beyond what would be expected & just an absolute sweetheart.
The newest renovations are great & the staff in the offices are amazing at their job, everything is organised so well. I'm so happy we chose The Parlour.

Thanks A Million

Perfect for us
We have both had the big white wedding before so this time we are doing it in the presence of just our immediate family and friends, 30 of us in total, and been a registrar of marriages myself I see all the extras people pay for at their venue, the parlour doesn’t need any of that, it is perfect without anything needing adding, simple stylish and elegant

Parlour at Blagdon
Absolutely perfect venue for us. Rustic and romantic without too much fuss. Meeting to look round the venue was great and we had everything explained clearly and any questions answered. We have been able to schedule meetings over the phone for convenience and they’ve been so warm and friendly and brilliant at being excited for us in our engagement!

The Parlour are amazing!
We booked our wedding two years in advance (before COVID) and the wedding staff were amazing beforehand, allowing us to plan a wedding up north whilst living in London and very quick to answer any questions or anything we needed! They have also been outstanding at communication throughout the pandemic and have been on hand to answer any concerns we had (even though they were probably at home too!) I can’t praise them enough and very excited to have our wedding day there.

Just beautiful!
Couldn't review them highly enough! We fell in love with our venue from the moment we stepped in. The service was second to none. Whenever we needed to visit they've always been so quick and accommodating. Throughout such an uncertain time also at present they've been nothing but generous, their communication is perfect. They've really put us at ease and our minds at rest. We cannot wait for our day next year!

We got married here on Sat 14th September and had the most amazing day! Can’t thank the staff enough for all their help during the preparation and during the big day it’s self! Special thanks to Toyah and Molly, they couldn’t of been more helpful! They ensured everything went smoothly and as we wished. We fell in love with the parlour on our first visit and it proved to be perfect for our wedding day! Big thanks again to all the team that helped to make our day so special Andrew and Sarah Elliott x

My husband and I got married here on Friday 21st June, I literally can not recommend the venue highly enough. The grounds and facilities are amazing and the staff were fantastic, Molly, in particular, was outstanding and looked after us and all our guests to ensure that we had the best day. The food was excellent and many of our guests commented on how much they enjoyed both the wedding breakfast and the evening buffet. If you are planning your wedding, get along to the Parlour - you will not be disappointed!
