Hawkstone Hall & Gardens
Steeped in history and oozing authentic 18th century charm, Hawkstone Hall & Gardens has rapidly become one of the most awe-inspiring wedding venues in the UK since it burst onto the scene in early 2019.
This incredible property, which has been lovingly restored by its new owners, the highly acclaimed Distinctly Hospitable group, must now be one of the most luxurious and grand settings imaginable for a stunning day to remember…..
Nestled in an imposing position surrounded by sweeping views of the Shropshire countryside, the Grade 1 listed Hawkstone Hall is nothing less than spectacular.
Once the ancestral home of the Hill family, its ethereal grounds transport you back to an era of romance and indulgence. Dreamy lily ponds, magical waterfalls and quirky follies all add to the magical feel here whilst the elegant interior boasts a host of breath-taking original features and custom designed additions.
From the magnificent Ballroom with its gilded ceiling and panelled walls to the unique Winter Garden with its floor to ceiling windows, tropical plants and sweeping staircases; wherever you look at Hawkstone, there is a stunning space that simply demands your attention.
The bright and airy Refectory has been given a modern twist with state-of-the-art lighting and AV equipment as standard whilst the romantic chapel has retained all its 18th century charm.
You will be spoiled for choice when it comes to your civil ceremony location; from the opulence of the grand Saloon with its original artwork and mesmerising views of the gardens to the achingly beautiful Tapestry Room and traditional chapel there are endless possibilities when planning your perfect day.
Imagine being master and mistress of your own stately home for the weekend….It’s surprising what a huge difference opting for exclusive use of a venue can make. From creating special moments in the lead up to the main event with special meals and refreshing walks to accommodating your nearest and dearest all under one roof, more and more couples are opting for a ‘Chateaux’ style wedding right here in the breath-taking British countryside.
With no other guests to disturb your bliss, Hawkstone can become your own personal paradise to share with those you love and create memories that will last forever.
