Hawkstone Hall is one of the UK’s most sought after wedding venues and the perfect location to celebrate a magical day with loved ones. Following an extensive renovation the Georgian property has now been restored to its former splendour.
Make a grand impression
Wedding guests approach via a mile-long gravel driveway. Upon arrival, imposing double doors open to reveal a magnificent main hall boasting high sculpted ceilings and beautiful antique furniture.
Guests can enjoy a multitude of spaces, including an impressive main hall, elegant ballroom, refectory and The Saloon, to name a few. For a magical wedding ceremony, the chapel in the grounds caters for up to 250 guests and houses working bells and even a grand organ. There’s also an extraordinary double staircase in the Winter Garden that’s the perfect place for some gorgeous wedding photographs.
The far-reaching grounds are perfect for exploring Shropshire’s quintessentially British countryside. The estate boasts a rose garden, croquet lawn, apple orchard, forested areas, over half a mile of footpaths and a romantic ‘secret garden’. Following the discovery of a water supply, the original 18th Century lily pond, fishing pond and waterfall have also been brought back to life.
The main hall houses 12 suites – including the extravagant Honeymoon Suite – all of which are named after Jane Austen characters. There’s also the Grand Bridal Preparation Wing, a custom designed space for exclusive use by the bridal party, and brides have their own personal butler from the time of arrival the night before the wedding and throughout the big day.
Adjacent to the main building, The Orangery Wing encompasses a further 25 bedrooms. In each room, colour tones mirror that of the main hall with soft hues of duck-egg blue and calamine pinks. All of the beautifully appointed bedrooms also include a cocktail tray, vintage-style radio, Nespresso coffee machine, fluffy bathrobes and Elemis toiletries. Opulent furnishings and luxurious deep mattresses add another lavish touch to the bedroom interiors, making this the perfect place to rest your head after the big day.
Non-exclusive hire available from £2,995; exclusive hire available from £8,995. For more details visit hawkstonehall.co.uk
