If your heart is set on an outdoor wedding celebration , pick a date between June and September for the greatest chance of blue skies. There are lots of spots inside and out at our unique venue that enjoy light all year round, but come summer, everything is illuminated, from the driveway to the sparkling checkerboard dancefloor inside the Garden Room. A summer wedding at Swynford Manor is a real treat!
Blue skies and multi-coloured blooms will provide the perfect backdrop for an outdoor 'I do' under our beautiful pergola – which is fully licensed – and we can help you decorate it in line with the sunny season. Try strings of flowers or ribbons tied around our romantic arch, or hand-written love letters from your nearest and dearest hanging from the wooden frame. Later, fling open the Garden Room doors and let your guests spill onto the patio and into the plush green grounds – you can serve casual canapés and cocktails out here or have dressed tables set up for something more formal. Be sure to make the most of warmer temperatures on your summer wedding day with garden games too and remember little details like baskets of sun cream for sun worshippers and flip flops for dedicated dancers. Looking for something a little different? Our catering team can work with you on a themed menu - perhaps a picnic or BBQ - that you and your guests can enjoy under Lord Byron's favourite tree, or on the Terrace.
