We really enjoyed our wedding at the Hawk Conservancy Trust. We love the grounds and what they provide for visitors on a daily basis, so when we found out that they offered weddings, it was a simple choice for us.
The grounds are simply beautiful and the birds are exceedingly well cared for. We were able to have one of the owls, Delta, to deliver our rings, causing amusement when she didn’t want to leave my husband’s arm.
We were allowed to have our photographs in various areas around the grounds, some with another owl, Troy. They were just stunning. There are no other words to describe them. The staff couldn’t have been more helpful and were happy to assist in any way possible – going above and beyond to make our day just perfect.
The Hawk Conservancy Trust made our day very special and utterly unique, which befits us as a couple and wowed our guests. The price was very reasonable for a truly breath-taking day – every penny so worthwhile to support their brilliant work!

Thank you to you and all the staff at The Hawk Conservancy who made Saturday such a special day.
We have lots of lovely comments from guests saying how stunning the setting was, how unique the day was, what a great time they had, and how fantastic the owl ring delivery was.
Duncan and I both appreciated how hard you all worked to make it a stress free day from the bride and grooms perspective - you could probably tell by my expression how much I could just relax and enjoy myself !
