Amazing Wedding Day

Wow our Wedding was 2 days ago and it was truly the most magical day of our lives. The views and setting at Swarling were simply beautiful and the weather delivered with blue skies and sunshine. Our guests haven’t stopped telling us how amazing our Wedding and venue was - so much space to roam and the whole place created such a lovely relaxed vibe. The food was delicious, canapés outstanding and drinks a plenty. Jess our coordinator was simply amazing on the day and the whole lead up, she is so professional and knows the wedding business inside out. Jess was a huge help to us throughout and I was able to relax fully on the day knowing we were in good hands. Thank you Jess, your team and Swarling Manor. Book your wedding now! Will & Kathryn x

Swarling Manor is set back to give you this peaceful haven to enjoy your special day. You can really add your own flare to this venue but everything Gina offers, even down to the little touches is perfect. The grounds are beautiful and with the space provided everyone can enjoy the day, especially children. It is an amazing venue and I am over joyed that we came across this hidden gem. There is also local accommodation near by making the bridal parties journey a simple walk which is perfect! Could not recommenced this place enough, hopefully I'll be able to attend as a guest one day!!

The venue is set just back from the main road meaning you have this quiet haven to enjoy your day. The grounds are breathtaking and everything offered by Gina just created the perfect day for us. It is an outstanding venue, there is local accommodation perfect for the wedding party. It’s the perfect venue for children as they have so much space to roam. Everyone we’ve spoken to mentioned how much fun they had and how great the venue was. It is a perfect venue for any occasion and I am over joyed that we found this hidden gem!

Perfect Place to get Married

My Husband and I got Married at Swarling Manor in August 2017 and it was the most perfect day in the such a beautiful setting, we couldn't have asked for better! Our circumstances were sadly unfortunate due to my Mum being diagnosed with a terminal illness we wanted to get married asap, leaving only 5 weeks to plan the Wedding. I can honestly say that all this would not have been possible without Gina, she was so helpful and sorted everything and nothing was too much trouble! The day ran very smoothly with no problems. If you are looking to get married in Kent i would highly recommend Swarling Manor!
