Stay, Celebrate, Marry.

Every story deserves a happily ever after, and never has the saying been truer than for the owners behind Blackton Grange Estate - Co. Durhams newest wedding venue & celebration estate.


Created by twin sisters Stella Laird & Jodi McSherry after realising just how precious life is. They both battled and overcame breast cancer at a young age and with such a diagnosis, understandably comes the opportunity to re-evaluate what you want from life.

The twins both agreed that they are happiest and most fulfilled when creating memories and spending time with those closest to them. With that realisation, they wanted to create a space where families and friends come together to enjoy life’s biggest milestones but a place that can be tailored to individual needs – this is where the unique approach to the celebration estate was born.

Exclusive, Unique & ENTIRELY your own for two nights or more.

Make your celebrations as unique as you are. No packages, no corkage & 100% flexibility. Set within 11 acres of Designated Dark Skies Wilderness, in the heart of an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty, your dream venue has just landed, and it couldn’t be timelier.

In an era where many wedding venues have a conveyer belt approach, it’s refreshing to find a new, exciting style that recognises that every couple is unique and puts emphasis on exclusivity and prolonged celebrations – after all this is one of the most memorable moments of a couple’s life.

Not only do you have full exclusivity of the estate, but you will have accommodation for up to 18 guests in the newly renovated farmhouse.

The dry hire approach allows you to put your own stamp on every element of your event allowing you to choose whichever food and drink suppliers you wish. If that sounds a little overwhelming, the venue has an amazing list of recommended suppliers to choose from.

What’s even better is that your wedding comes with a dedicated coordinator to make your day as stress free as possible.
