Hawkesyard Estate dates back to the 13th century when the local gentry used the estate as hunting land and was commissioned shortly after by Simon De Rugeley for the construction as Hawkesyard Hall.

The estate was later purchased by Mary Spode in 1839, who extended and refurbished the Hall and the Order later built a new priory within the grounds which was occupied by nuns until the early 20th century.

The estate now stands as a renowned wedding venue and has been lovingly restored to its former glory.

    We and to say a massive thank you to Paul and the team at Hawkesyard Estate for the smooth and hassle free run up to the day! Everything from the day we booked our dream wedding to the checking out was fab.

    We'd also like to thank Sarah and the team for their work on the day ensuring everything ran smoothly. We can’t fault anything - the day went smoothly and our guests were amazed at how lovely the venue was and it’s quirkiness. Hawkesyard Estate is amazing - thank you for making our day the best it could possibly be.

  • Vanessa and Michael

    From the moment we booked Hawkesyayrd Estate we have never failed to feel as if our day was as important to the staff there as it was to us. Mary made us so welcome showing us around and we fell in love with the beautiful & quirky architecture. Through all of our many emails, calls and visits to the Estate, we have been dealt with in a most respectful manner, nothing has ever been too much trouble.

    When we arrived to set up, we were met by the wonderful Paul, who is so very kind and helpful and clearly loves his job. We were handed over to Sarah on the day of our wedding, who helped make the day run so very smoothly, once again, nothing was too much trouble for her and the other staff. Thanks again.

  • Kayleigh and Tom

    My partner and I got married at Hawkesyard Estate and it was an absolutely amazing day. We both can't thank you staff enough who worked with us during the 12 months before and during the day to make it the most perfect day.

    The venue looked amazing, I wouldn't have changed a thing. I bombarded them with emails and phone calls and always got a response quickly and my questions were always answered with no trouble. I highly recommend this venue for any occasion! Thank you all once again, you were all Amazing.
