Create your perfect wedding day with Honeysuckle and Castle at Hardwick

Take your vows in the atmospheric Entrance Hall. The magnificent Entrance Hall, hung with Elizabethan tapestries, provides an atmospheric location for civil ceremonies and partnerships and seats up to 70 guests. Use the gallery for a string quartet to serenade you or use our facilities for your own musical preferences.

The East Court Rose garden, with a beautiful view across the grounds, is a stunning location for a celebratory drinks reception. The wedding couple the opportunity to use the Long Gallery and High Great Chamber as stunning backdrops for photographs. Or you might like to take some romantic photos in the walled gardens and orchard while your guests enjoy the colourful plant borders.

Extend your celebrations after the ceremony and use Hardwick as your reception venue.

After your drinks and canapés in the East Court Rose Garden, you and your guests can saunter across the Ha-Ha to the Wine Glass field and into your personally decorated marquee. There you can enjoy your wedding breakfast, toasts, music and dancing until carriages at Midnight.
