About Hardesty Event Design
We will create an enchanting, and extraordinary immersive experience for you and your guests because after all, I believe that in life, it’s these experiences which last a lifetime.
Over the years working for leading event companies across East Anglia UK, I’ve planned and managed over 100 weddings. My experience spans from intimate micro weddings, 3-day country estate wedding weekends and stylish city weddings in Norwich, Norfolk. I’ve also managed and coordinated an array of multicultural fusion weddings including Indian weddings, Asian weddings, Jewish and Greek weddings.
Just like each of my couples, every wedding had their own quirks, personality, and sense of style.
The experience and knowledge gained from many wonderful years of wedding and event management is the backbone of this business, and has been paramount in forming long lasting, working relationships with some of East Anglia’s finest wedding industry suppliers.
All wedding planning services are offered to wedding couples and wedding venues across the UK including, and not limited to, the wedding venue ran and managed by Hardesty Event Design; Worstead Estate, in Norfolk, East Anglia.

.01 / Harriet & Oscar
"We feel so lucky to have had your support along the way, from the very first stages right up until the best day of our lives and after!"
Emily, you have been totally perfect throughout the whole wedding planning process, ever since the first day we stepped foot into Hales Hall and met you, and totally fell in love with the stunning barn and hall.
You are incredibly professional, and that really showed on Saturday where you all worked as such a smooth and efficient team – everything ran to perfection, we felt truly spoiled and so did all of our guests. You always went above and beyond, especially on the Friday and Sunday of our wedding weekend, when nothing seemed to be too much trouble for you (even when we stupidly locked ourselves out of the bridal suite!!)
You will never know how much you made that weekend for us.
.02 / Katie & Barnaby
"I want to thank you a million times over for providing the most incredible service throughout our wedding. "
You were so brilliant and professional and so many people have mentioned to us how impressed they were with the slickness of your team on the day.
I’m devastated it’s all over but couldn’t be happier in the way our married life has started. Thank you.
.03 / Clare & Rhun
“Emily was fantastic to work with from beginning to end, and made the planning process really straightforward."
Emily was professional, organised and really accommodating, allowing us to add personal touches to the decoration and organisation which made the day really special.
We would very much recommend this venue to anyone who is looking for a really unique venue, thank you Emily and the team for all you did in creating our day!
.04 / Emily & Ryan
“I could not have wished for a more smooth and relaxed day and all the suppliers especially yourselves helped made that possible."
I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you so much for the amazing help and direction Saturday and the build up too. It was a rocky road at the start with Covid19 but worth every moment and every penny. We had the best day and it was so much fun and feel very grateful to have had such an amazing wedding.
