Endless Possibilities Envisage an impossibly elegant walk down the aisle in our Bowcliffe Room, sip cocktails at the art deco bar and experience the most decadent wedding breakfast in our glorious Ballroom (complete with majestic chandelier). Picture guests milling amidst the glamorous mahogany panelled walls of our 1920’s inspired Private Members Club, or plan for wedding pictures spilling onto the lawns from our Southfacing Terrace. Take a moment of peace and tranquillity and enjoy an intimate blessing in our tiny, 12-seater Chapel before joining a party as memorable as the ‘I do’s’ in the soaring Blackburn Wing, a jaw-dropping copper and glass ‘tree house’ set high in the Estate’s ancient woodland.
It was exactly what we were looking for. (Our guests absolutely raved about the venue) – it was unforgettable. KEVIN & PHIL

The Blackburn Wing CEREMONY: 80 / DINNER: 60 / DRINKS RECEPTION: 120
The Blackburn Wing was built as a tribute to Robert Blackburn, a Yorkshireman and aviation pioneer, who introduced the first scheduled air service to Great Britain and lived at Bowcliffe Hall in the early 1900’s. Designed and built with meticulous attention to detail, this architectural masterpiece creates the impression of being suspended inside a wing, and offers a unique and unforgettable contemporary space with spectacular views and state of the art facilities.
A multi award winning copper and glass masterpiece, The Blackburn Wing is a triumph in design; a modern day tree house which is shaped like an aeroplane wing and nestled high in the Estate’s ancient woodland. If you’re looking for a spectacular space that will have guests talking about your wedding for years to come, not to mention a place to really party once the ceremony is over – then The Blackburn Wing is for you.

Welcome to the space that will single handedly make all your wedding dreams come true.

The Bowcliffe Room CEREMONY: 85 / DINNER: 60 / DRINKS RECEPTION: 80 Walk down the aisle in a room that is the epitome of Georgian elegance. The Bowcliffe Room is situated at the heart of Grade II listed Bowcliffe Hall, and retains many of its original period features.

Food of Love Bowcliffe is the destination for couples intent on creating a truly inspiring wedding menu.

From indulgent sharing boards, plant-based or seasonal dishes, Asian-inspired cuisine, vegetarian options or traditional food, we use only the best, locally sourced and home grown ingredients. This is anything but your average wedding fare.
We had had a menu tasting beforehand which was AMAZING so knew this part was well taken care of. It was planned so that there was food available for most parts of the day. CanapĂŠs at the Drink Reception, the most incredible food at the Wedding Breakfast, a selection of fudge made by the Chef before the evening do and a hog roast/grazing table for the night. ISABELLE & JOHN
