Reception capacity?


Is the venue available for exclusive use?

The whole site is exclusively yours for the duration of your wedding day.

Are you available for just a ceremony?

Yes, we have ceremony only packages for both our North Range and East Range.

Do we have to have a sit down meal?

We pride ourselves on keeping our couple's dreams at the centre of what we do. We therefore work with a selection of approved caterers who can provide anything from a sit down meal through to giant paella, BBQs in the garden or a simple buffet.

Do you have accommodation?

We don't currently have accommodation onsite but we have partnered with a local boutique provider, to include a two night stay for the couple as part of our North Range reception and full day packages. We also have a unique discount code that can be used by guests or couples who have booked smaller packages that don't include a stay. The accommodation is a short walk from the Priory.


We can't thank you and your team enough for organising the day. It was the perfect balance of ceremony and fun. Everyone was blown away with the beauty of the building and the way it lends itself perfectly to the occasion. Your attention to detail and relaxed approach helped the day go perfectly.

We were lucky to have Kerry helping us organise our wedding at Blackfriars, she's very professional, trustworthy and happy to go above and beyond. It made us feel at ease on our big day knowing that Kerry was there to deal with any problems. Happy to help out of hours and made it feel easy to ask questions.

Thank you so much for making our day so special. The venue looked amazing, and all of our guests loved it. We loved the drinks and felt as relaxed as we could have been on our wedding day. Thank you for all of your hard work.

L & L - Brides

We used Blackfriars as our wedding venue and we can’t thank them enough for their wonderful service- it was most beautiful place to get married! After having to postpone our April 2020 wedding due to the pandemic, we were supported and guided through this by the amazing Blackfriars team. We know from speaking to friends, that some wedding venues were difficult when postponing weddings but this can’t have been further from the truth with our experience of Blackfriars. We couldn’t have asked for anything more and would recommend them to anyone. Thank you Holly, Ryan and Sue, you are amazing and we can’t wait to celebrate in our wedding part 2 next year!
