Swynford Manor is the perfect fusion of contemporary style and rural charm and will suit modern couples looking for an unforgettable and utterly luxurious country house wedding venue.
Just 20 minutes from Cambridge, Swynford Manor dates back to the 18th century and boasts a rich history. It was the home of Lord Byron’s sister, and the renowned poet was known to stay in the summer, sitting beneath one of the grounds’ great trees to write. King Charles II also held his infamous 12-mile horse race on the lane outside.
Fast forward to today, and Swynford Manor, with its myriad ceremony and reception spaces, 12 guest rooms and seven acres of lawns and paddocks, is a country house wedding venue like no other. And it’s exclusively yours on your special day.
Once your car has rolled down the expansive gravel drive, with plush green lawns on either side, the entrance is nothing short of spectacular.
The outside of Swynford Manor is brimming with rural elegance – picture a gleaming timber-framed building whose slick shape is interrupted by ample chimneys and wide-eyed windows. Step inside our country house wedding venue and a sparkling monochrome chequerboard floor fans out across the hall, giant mirrors adorn the walls and a huge crystal chandelier hovers above the grand staircase, which promises a plethora of photograph opportunities.
This is the perfect place to greet guests with flutes of fizz and delicate canapés, and is sure to whet their appetite for the rest of the day.
Designed with fluidity in mind, the rest of the rooms in this stunning manor house wedding venue are dressed to match the entrance hall in a chic black and white palette with tactile touches such as velvet wingback chairs and soft curtains, metallic fixtures and crystal ornaments throughout.
