A truly unique wedding venue
Nestled in the beautiful Derbyshire countryside sits Blackbrook House, a truly unique wedding venue. We believe that your wedding day should be all about you and so weddings are individually designed with each couple, taking care over every little detail. Whether a small intimate ceremony or a large joyous party, we can help make your day extraordinary.
Extraordinary big days
Blackbrook House in Belper is a beautifully restored Victorian house set within 4 acres of landscaped gardens and magical woodlands, making it the perfect backdrop for your wedding. We are licensed to hold civil ceremonies 7 days a week, both within the house and also outside in our stunning terraced gardens.
We steer away from the traditional packages and make every wedding bespoke and individual to the couple. Our wish is for you to have exclusivity and total privacy and for you and your guests to enjoy Blackbrook House for the day as though it was your own and as such the house is closed to all other guests on your day.

Have A Little Nosey
I thee Wed – Jack & Sarah
We at Save the Date Magazine get submitted quite a few weddings but when this one dropped in our inbox, we couldn't wait to feature it. Beautifully shot by Simon Dewey, not only is the location stunning (Blackbrook House) but the wedding itself took 'detail' to a whole new level with every last piece of the gorgeous affair immaculately thought through. Such a creative bride !
Feedback on Blackbrook House
My husband and I got married at Blackbrook House in September 2016. From the initial meeting right up to and including our wedding day, everything was perfect. Each member of staff at Blackbrook are friendly and genuinely want you to have the most amazing day ever. Our day went without a hitch and that’s all thanks to the rigorous planning from the team there. Our wedding day was beautiful; the decor in the house was exactly as planned, the food was all delicious (credit to Steve the Head Chef) and all our guests commented on how much they enjoyed our day. If we could do it all again, we wouldn’t hesitate! Perfect!
When planning a wedding, the choice of venue is probably the most important decision you have to make. After visiting a number of venues and not finding anything we really liked, a friend told us about the best wedding she had ever attended, at Blackbrook House. After such a recommendation we investigated and one visit was enough to know that this was the venue for us. The staff at Blackbrook couldn’t be more helpful and made the planning so much easier. The wedding day itself was perfect in every way, fantastic location, great atmosphere, amazing food aided by an incredible attention to detail by all the staff. We have lost count of the number of friends and family who have said that it was the best wedding they have ever been to. Thank you Blackbrook House.
There aren’t enough words that can explain how delighted we were with our decision to have our wedding at Blackbrook House. From looking around on the open day, to the day itself, the love, care and attention shown by the team is honestly out of this world. They really work to bring your ideas to life. They are very much about creating a day that is your day; not like the other 50 that have happened that year. They are great at showing you ideas that make the most of the time you have, the venue, and they have years of experience of knowing what works and what doesn’t. The house is just stunning; with Victorian character features we knew that it would be perfect for our intimate, romantic theme. We only wanted quite a small wedding and we felt that whilst the house was spacious, our guests wouldn’t feel lost. Because we wanted a romantic wedding, the thought of all the Christmas lights, along with candles and all the decorations really sealed it for us. However, never in our wildest dreams could we have imagined just how AMAZING the house looked for Christmas. It was classy, elegant – truly stunning. Our guests were blown away, as were we. The food is just divine, it was like eating in a top restaurant. From the wedding breakfast to the evening food, everyone raved about how delicious the food was. I still dream about the sticky toffee pudding The whole team on the day, all played such a massive part in our big day and we are so thankful for their kindness. An amazing venue & team.
