Absolutely amazing 🤩

I cannot recommend hardwick moat weddings highly enough I would give them 10 stars!
We originally booked our wedding with hardwick just before the pandemic, but with all the uncertainty we decided to change it to 2022, Katy couldn’t of been more understanding and accommodating, I was completely clueless and overwhelmed with the planning of the wedding, but Katy was by my side the whole two years, nothing was to much trouble and she was just incredible with ideas and helping our dream day come together, the scenery and beautiful marquee is just flawless, I love that we could have it our way, so many options were Available, and I also love that the smaller local businesses were recommended, we used quite a few, we went for a festival theme very laid back with food trucks for catering and we had many different options for the children, outdoor cinema disco dome nerf maze etc, with this venue the possibilities are endless, the bar prices were so reasonable there were many sore heads the next day and everyone of my guests loved the venue. Can’t wait to come back and do it all again maybe for our 10th anniversary?? Honestly once you’ve seen this venue you would struggle to find anything else like it.

Working as a Wedding Planner with Katy and Team @ Hardwick Moat Weddings

Katy and her Team at Hardwick Moat were an absolute pleasure to work with, I have worked with many Wedding Venues Teams around Cambridgeshire and I have to say the Team were helpful throughout our whole time working together. On the day before my clients wedding they went above and beyond to help me and my team with logistics and other tasks that would have been difficult if it was not for their venue expertise. I look forward to hopefully working together with Hardwick Moat Weddings in the future.

The most PERFECT venue delivered by an amazing team!

This is the most amazing setup and brought to life everything we have dreamed of for our festival wedding! As soon as we met Katy on our site visit, we knew we were in very capable hands! Her and her team are so talented and think of absolutely everything! They have such creative vision and have helped us create a perfect weekend! From the transport to the decor to the on site accommodation and utilities, they have it covered and have so many contacts. The views are incredible - rolling countryside and corn fields. There is a beautiful bridge that you cross to get onto the separate moat farm which is where we are having our Glamping Village. Amazing value for money and really friendly, creative, knowledgeable staff! We couldn’t ask for anything more and highly recommend.

Fantastic, professional, they have made planning a wedding stress free, so we can enjoy getting excited for the day.

We are a few months away from our big day, I can not recommend these highly enough, from our first visit to deciding on the finer details, they have gone over and above at ever stage. The venue is unique and beautiful, Can’t wait for our big day. If I could give more than five stars I would!

Fabulous venue, can not reccommend enough, the perfect place and team

I can not recommend Hardwick Moat Weddings as a venue enough and advise all couples considering a wedding in this area to look into this venue as it is an absolute gem!!! We are thrilled to have held our wedding here in Aug 21!

After a year of uncertainty planning a wedding in the middle of a pandemic, Katy and team were a huge breath of fresh air and were excellent at helping us to plan and deliver the perfect wedding day!

The venue and marquee are absolutely stunning with views of the countryside to be seen from all angles of the site. The possibilities of what can be done at site are endless, Katy and Kelly had loads of great ideas and were super helpful throughout the whole planning and set up process!

We loved the personal touch at this venue as truly it felt like anything was possible; decor, food, entertainment wise, it was a truly unique day at a truly special venue!

Our guests loved the marquee and camping onsite in teepees afterwards was fantastic!

Katy and team were amazing throughout the whole process from start to finish and we knew we were in safe hands on our wedding day and that everything would go to plan!

A very special day and we were so glad that this team ran it for us!
