A wedding is as special as the couple getting married and we, at the Hawk Conservancy Trust, will ensure that your wedding is one of a kind. Set within 22 acres of woodland and wildflower grounds and in the heart of the Hampshire countryside, the Trust has a variety of indoor and outdoor spaces for entertainment, your ceremony and photographs. Enjoy your special day surrounded by friends and family, be entertained with our three world-class flying displays and come face-to-face with a special feathered friend. Make your first photographs as a married couple memorable by inviting the wonderful Great Grey Owl, the powerful Bald Eagle or the awesome Hooded Vulture to celebrate with you in a personal VIP encounter and capture this special moment on your wedding day.
You and all your guests will have access to the Trust grounds, allowing them to be inspired by our awesome birds of prey and be captivated by our world-class flying displays. As a registered wedding venue, you can have your ceremony almost anywhere within our grounds. We have a variety of indoor and outdoor spaces that each have their own characteristics and features, making each special and different in their own way.

The balcony is a perfect place to enjoy drinks, socialise with guests, and enjoy our inspiring morning display from an amazing vantage point.

A wedding at the Trust contributes to our mission – the conservation of birds of prey and their habitats. Whilst you enjoy our beautiful location, dedicated staff, awesome birds and excellent facilities, you’ll also be helping to support our conservation, rehabilitation, research and education projects for birds of prey in the UK and overseas.
