Emma & Tony 24th June 2017
Venue Service

By Emma Jodrell, on 17 Jul 2017Date of Wedding - 24 Jun 2017

I just wanted to express how amazing our wedding was and to thank you both for everything you’ve done, it couldn’t have gone any better for us. The Garden Room for the ceremony and reception looked beautiful. It was pretty much exactly as I had imagined it to be. Sophie, the preparation you worked through with us was so evident on the day, thank you for all your hard work, it certainly paid off and we were lucky to have you! The Garden Room in the evening was so pretty and made me feel unbelievably special. Can’t wait for the official photos.

We had a wonderful day at our Wedding reception at the Old Swan in Harrogate. The staff were very attentive and friendly, and treated me and my Wife like royalty! The drinks reception, wedding breakfast and the evening reception were all handled very well, and any minor issues were dealt with quickly. Special thanks to our Wedding Coordinator Georgina and our Master of Ceremonies Fatou who really helped make our day special. Thank you!

We wanted a wedding that was unique to us . Georgina the wedding co ordinater at The Swan made that not just possible but happen on 22/12/15 From our first meeting right through the planning and the day nothing was to much trouble and anything was possible. On the day the venue was amazing . The staff all absolutely fantastic . Our guests thoroughly enjoyed themselves saying the food and service from the staff was first class The whole event was stress free and well run leaving us with nothing to do but enjoy our day and guests. The bridal suite was lovely and finishing touches added to the occasion. Our guests who stayed at the hotel enjoyed hearty breakfasts and their rooms were of a good standard . We would recommend checking this venue and meeting Georgina very highly. If you want your wedding day to be stress and hastle free this is the place to be.

Had such an amazing wedding day on 10/10/15. The hotel looked fantastic, the do had everyone dancing from start to finish and the food was lovely. Everything ran smoothly and the guests all commented about how relaxed and enjoy rank the day was. Georgina (wedding coordinator) was brilliant at putting us at ease. The honeymoon suite was beautiful and the all the wedding guests that stayed, said there rooms were lovely. It was also really special to have a private area to share breakfast with our guests the morning after. BRILLIANT!

Amazing Day!
Venue Service

By Abby and Ricky Dempsey, on 26 Sep 2015

My Husband and I got married at The Old Swan on 5th September 2015. We had a fabulous day! Our wedding Co-ordinator, Georgina was great, leading up to the big day she really put our minds at ease and helped with the organisation of everything, she was so helpful and kept in touch with us constantly. We had a bit of a nightmare with the chair covers (We used an external company) and Georgina came to the rescue and contacted their resident chair cover contact for new covers and Georgina even put the new ones on the morning of the wedding!The Master Of Ceremonies, Matthew was also fantastic, we met Matthew a week before the Wedding Day and he went through everything with a fine toothed comb, from the order of the day to how we wanted the serviettes folding! The day ran so smoothly and we are so grateful to everyone who made our day so special. Thank you!

Wedding 1st September 2015
Venue Service

By David & Sheila Moffat, on 16 Sep 2015

After viewing several wedding venues we decided on The Old Swan. We found it the perfect venue for such a important day. From day one the various meetings we had with the staff went very well and they couldn't have been more helpful. The day its self went to plan, the staff continued with their help from early morning till late at night. Our guests had nothing but praise for the whole occasion.

Wedding - 7th March 2015
Venue Service

By Sam, on 20 May 2015

We were impressed with the service from our first visit to the Old Swan, other venues delayed in replying or didn't bother at all and this was never the case here. We felt we could trust them to help organise and ensure the day went smoothly and that stayed true. We had a fantastic day in this lovely venue and would recommend to anyone considering having their wedding here. Can't thank them enough.

Wonderful Wedding Venue

By Fiona and Sam, on 14 Nov 2014

We had our wedding at the Old Swan hotel on 1st November 2014 and it was just fantastic. All the staff were wonderful, and Kevin who ran the day was absolutely superb. Can't recommend the hotel enough as a wedding venue, thank you so much for making our day stress free and extremely special.

Awsome in every way
Venue Service

By Theresa and David, on 24 Sep 2014

Our wedding was at The Old Swan on 30 August 2014, and was originally chosen as (apart from being beautiful) we needed to be able to accommodate from 10 to 300 people while still being manageable and affordable. It finalised with only 100 guests including children but with our friends and family being very far-flung, we really could not guess at booking stage how many people would be able to make it. For the same reason, we needed a venue with plenty of overnight accommodation (90% of our guests traveled to Harrogate for the wedding) and also, with a large number of children invited, we needed an easily accessible separate room for a mobile creche . Lastly, all this had to be arranged by email from London where we live, with very little face-to-face contact.This venue was and is is perfectly able to do all of the above and with Jessica (the venue's wedding coordinator) being the most FABULOUS, efficient and organised person on the planet (while being entirely laid back, humorous and flexible with it), organisation and management of the above went off ridiculously smoothly (and if it didn't, I would never know so job done). Jamie, the function manager on the day was 'perfection'... everything went exactly according to time and plan without any feeling of a timetable... he was there when we needed him but unobtrusive and without any interference. The food was fantastic and all the suppliers (nearly all recommended by the Old Swan) were incredible (and affordable)... I had so many compliments on the organisation .. and to be honest, it was all credit to Jessica and her team ... - - Thanks again to the Old Swan, Jessica, Jamie and the staff - AWSOME IN EVERY WAY !!

Wonderful setting
Venue Service

By Felicity Nichols, on 15 Sep 2014

We held our wedding reception in the library room in July this year and couldnt have been happier. The staff were fantastic and did everything they could to make our day perfect. The food was absolutly stunning and all our guests commented on it. Jessica was so helpful from the beginning and made sure we had everything we needed. The room was fantastic and just the right size for the more intimate wedding we had wanted. We couldnt have hoped for a nicer venue and team to make our day so special. Highly recommended.
