WEDDINGS AT HARDWICK HALL // Hardwick Hall has been described as the finest and most spectacular Elizabethan ‘Palace’ in the country and we feel very lucky to exclusively manage weddings at this truly special venue. Dramatically situated on its own hillside (and built for a queen in waiting), it has played an integral part in British history and the Hall is jam-packed with unique and priceless treasures that are internationally renowned and can be found nowhere else. Our couples and their guests will are awestruck by its magnificent and totally unique atmosphere, here are just a few reasons why we love Hardwick Hall.
“Looking down on the countryside below, Hardwick boasts breathtaking views for miles and miles”
Hardwick Hall is situated at the heart of a perfect country estate comprising of nearly 1000 acres of lush green parkland that is filled with ancient oaks, cascading ponds and meandering long horn cattle. The Walled Gardens are utterly charming; with hidden orchards, secret gateways, high yew tree hedging (like in a maze) and stunning borders, brimming with seasonal flowers. There is even a gorgeous summer house to hide in too.
“The perfect blank canvas for a marquee or tipi celebrations making the most of the stunning scenery”
If having a tipi or marquee event, these are incredible blank canvas’s that suit any style or themed event that you want to have. Our wedding suppliers are amongst the best in the industry and always ensure that their products/services are of a high quality and that they are superbly delivered.
“Exciting, bespoke catering your way”
Our caterers are incredibly flexible and diverse, as well as delicious! They offer a wide range of dining and eating options. Gone are the days where you have to have a three course dinner and a buffet, unless of course that’s what you want.
“Carry on the celebrations all weekend with beautiful on-site accommodation”
We have fantastic on-site accommodation in some of our historical estate cottages! This means that you really can have a perfect weekend get a way for you, your family and friends too.
” The setting for Hollywood blockbusters”
Featured in the Hollywood blockbuster Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows, it is the home of Lucius Malfoy and from where Voldermort plans his return.
