Hardwicke Hall Manor

A rural setting, surrounded by picturesque lawns and a woodland backdrop, this classic grade II listed building, Hardwicke Hall Manor Hotel, was everything Laura and Richard had pictured for their perfect wedding day. When it came to falling in love with this exclusive hidden gem, situated on the East Durham coast, it certainly wasn’t hard for Laura and Richard. Set within its own beautiful grounds, from the moment the bride and groom-to-be stepped into Hardwicke Hall’s very own perimeter of established woodland, it was the striking tranquillity and relaxed vibe that instantly stole their hearts. Personalising this beautiful blank canvas was a must for the couple, decorating their ceremony and reception spaces with family photos, pastel hues and unique centrepieces. Crisp white adorned the tables while pops of rich golden colours added character, luxury and charm to Laura and Richard’s romantic wedding day. 


Laura entered the intimate ceremony room in a beautiful tea dress, with lace trim and a sweetheart neckline. This stunning short gown was given the vintage touch as she paired her look with an elegant pin-up, bold red lip and pearl accessories. The groom stood at the altar, awaiting his bride, in a stylish grey three-piece suit with a mint green coloured tie and ivory pocket rose to match his bride’s gown.
