Imagine an idyllic wedding celebration in a country house, tucked away in the Cambridgeshire countryside, and you’ll no doubt be thinking of roaring fires, cosy corners, low lighting and huge wooden tables for everyone to sit around, all framed by greenery. And that’s exactly what you’ll get at Swynford Manor, with a healthy dose of modern luxury, of course.
The Drawing Room
The Drawing Room at Swynford Manor is a welcoming space that can serve several purposes and has space for 60 people. Far enough away from the party for a little respite but close enough for your guests to feel involved, it’s a great room to relax in during the wedding reception. This would be a good place to keep your guest book, so friends and family can take their time to write thoughtful notes and memories for you.
Alternatively, you could make the most of Byron Bar, which sits within the Drawing Room. Hire a cocktail expert to teach your bridal party the tricks of the trade, and take turns to serve each other your newly concocted tipples. You can also use this area to lay out evening food or canapés and hot drinks while the more energetic members of your party continue to dance the night away across the hall in the Garden Room.
Another advantage of having chosen a country house for your wedding venue is the ample on-site accommodation for your guests. After a sound night’s sleep in our luxurious guest rooms, you’re all invited to enjoy breakfast in the Drawing Room. This is often one of the highlights of a wedding celebration and is a chance for you to thank the most important people in your life for coming and hear about the wonderful time everyone had.
