About

On WeddingWire since 2017

Hatfield Farm is a rustic wedding venue located in Hammonds Plains, Nova Scotia. This pristine retreat is located just 20 minutes from Halifax and offers a lovely escape from the city while being close to local amenities. It features a private lodge where you and your loved ones can celebrate long into the night.

Facilities and Capacity

Nestled in a secluded area of the property separate from the barn is Hatfield Farm鈥檚 exclusive event venue, Fort Clayton. This 5,000-square-foot lodge is ideal for celebrations of up to 225 guests. The festivities begin with the arrival of the happy couple to the venue in a horse-drawn carriage or sleigh. Newlyweds can use the carriage for photos in between the ceremony and reception. Nuptials can take place indoors or outdoors as there are a variety of beautiful locations to choose from. The lodge is surrounded by towering trees and overlooks a sparkling lake, providing a picturesque backdrop for your vows and photo sessions. Inside, the rustic reception hall features exposed beams and a large stone fireplace. The warm hearth can also serve as a ceremony venue for winter weddings. During the reception, guests are welcome to enjoy the Rubber Rodeo in an adjacent building, which boasts a mechanical bull and inflatable games for a unique experience. In the evening, the property鈥檚 bonfire pits are lit, allowing guests to relax and mingle.

Services Offered

Hatfield Farm offers a vast spectrum of services to ensure each of their couples can experience the wedding of their dreams. When you book your celebration here, their events staff will work with you to organize your special day. Whether its booking on-site accommodation or selecting your ceremony location, they are happy to help you throughout the process. They provide a DJ and a vast supply of music to entertain your guests and alleviate some of the stress of coordinating vendors. Catering services are also covered by the venue, with the option to add appetizers or late-night snacks during the reception.

Amazing! We are so happy

We hired Hatfield as our reception venue and they were great. Everything was pretty much seemless. There were a couple minor hickups that they corrected or offered to correct very quickly. The weather was not great and they were very accomidating to us and our guests. I am very happy with our choice and would recommed them to anyone looking for a rustic venue. The one stop shopping made it very easy and would be a great fit for someone who wants a very easy day witout the normal stresses of decorating and set up.

Absolutley amazing

I absolutley reccomend Hatfield Farm to any couple getting married. It's a turn key wedding so all we had to bring was the cake and photographer. We ended up wanting to use our own decorations but they were very accommodating. We were so impressed.

We live in Alberta and with the help of Hatfield Farm they made everything super easy. On the day of the wedding they took care of everything and the only thing we need to worry about was enjoying the day and having fun.
