Blackstock Country Estate - Vegan Wedding Showcase
On Sunday 20th January 2019 Blackstock Country Estate held their first vegan wedding showcase, and we were delighted to be invited along! The event showcased their lovely vegan food, vegan wines from their supplier and the stunning venue itself. With their extensive 'Green Menu', there are plenty of both vegetarian and vegan choices to select from for your wedding breakfast. Prior to the wedding, group menu tastings are held to sample the dishes, some of which were available to try at the showcase. Dishes ranged from basil marinated tofu to caramel cheesecake - all completely vegan!
Set in the Sussex countryside, this barn wedding venue is not only a beautiful setting for your big day, but it also has plenty of accommodation for all the bridal party. With views over the rolling parkland in which is sits, their newly built 'Goat House' (converted from an old goat house, of course) is the perfect place to spend your wedding night - just imagine waking up to these views on your first morning as a married couple.
The pair of rustic barns, which can offer full exclusivity of the venue, can be dressed in any style you wish - we loved the natural greens and candle light that was displayed at the showcase. Something so simply beautiful fits this space perfectly. As well as the barn for your civil ceremony, wedding breakfast and evening reception, Blackstock Country Estate also offers use of their soft play barn - this is ideal if you have got children to keep entertained during the day! The newly weds can also be chauffeured down to the lake within the grounds for some stunning photo opportunities.
We think that this place has got to be worth a look if you are yet to book your venue and you can be sure that they provide vegan dishes which will leave your guests impressed.
