Our Property

We are located in beautiful rural Haldimand County. Uniquely situated within the Attercliffe Station community of Dunnville, Ontario. Less than 45 minutes from downtown Hamilton & St. Catharines.

 

Once-upon-a-time, our property was a railroad. Mother Nature has since reclaimed the land, creating the most magical outdoor aisle surrounded by tall trees & farmland.

 

We Make Getting Married Easy

Hi! We are "The Hardys" and we can't wait to make your wedding dreams come true

Truth time - our wedding day was NOT the best day of our lives! Don't get me wrong, our vendors were wonderful and it was very special being surrounded by so many of our family & friends as we said "I do", BUT if we had to do it all over again...we would do things very differently. The stressful planning and financial commitment consumed so much of our energy during our year and a half engagement. Years later when we heard of the new micro wedding trend we were fascinated! Our wedding was already over but we dreamed of simplifying the process for other couples while still maintaining the beauty of a fully styled wedding. 

The first wedding to take place on our property was in December of 2017. Brad's brother, Josh and his fiancée, Amanda asked us to create a simple but sweet ceremony to celebrate their love. We had the most fun working together as a team! In just a few weeks we created something special for them! Josh and Amanda read their vows surrounded by glowing mason jars, greenery, and a handful of their loved ones. They got married & we were inspired, in more ways than one!

We believe that everyone deserves the opportunity to have their dream wedding day. Our goal is to create affordable and stylish alternatives to traditional (aka big & expensive) weddings!

Send us a message to learn more about how we can help make your wedding dreams come true on a dime!

How Does A Microwedding Work?

What is a Microwedding?


A "microwedding" is where a gorgeous but temporary venue is created and hosts a number of couples to say their vows in short, intimate, styled form. We bring together all the best professionals, so all you have to do is show up with your loved ones. Our goal is to make it as easy as possible for you to say “I Do”. More than one couple, usually between 3 – 5, will be marrying in the same spot (at different times, of course) and the costs are significantly reduced.

A FUN & easy way to “get hitched”! If you’re not interested in spending a fortune & the thought of enduring a long and stressful planning process sounds dreadful, then a pop-up wedding might be for you! On your special day all of the instagram-worthy details will be taken care of. All you have to do is show up, get married and pop the bubbly!

Yes, we offer Weekday Elopements (the couple + up to 6 guests) at a discounted rate. This package does not include any decorations, food or drink but is a basic & beautiful way to say "I Do" at a discounted rate. Click here to learn more!

Fill out the contact form and specify that this is your interest to find out more! We can provide a list of some prefered local vendors :)




How are you dealing with COVID-19?


The health and safety of our couples and our community if our number one priority! We always follow goverment regulations and are constantly adjusting and pivoting as the situation changes from week to week. Currently we have modified our policy so that weddings do not need to be paid in full upfront; we are accepting deposits instead to try and accomodate those in difficult situations. We realize that althought many clients come to us because they WANT a tiny event, there are many of you who had something much larger planned and have been forced to downsize. This is heartbreaking and we are working with many couples who are in this situation to help them create an alternative that still feels special and meaningful!
We are trying to be as flexible as possible so, if you have any other questions please do not hesitate to reach out. We are here for you during this unprecidented time! <3
