    The most perfect day

    We got married at the Old Swan at the end of August and it was the most perfect day!

    From the months of planning that went into it, to the day itself, the staff of Old Swan were so professional. A special mention to Elisha who took the time to answer my many emails in the planning stages! The Old Swan provided a very flexible and personal service.

    The bridal suite was very spacious, which allowed myself and the bridesmaids to all get ready together. The Master of Ceremonies, Kate, was very friendly and helped the day run smoothly. The food was of a very high standard, and accommodated different dietary requirements (GF, vegetarian).

    The gardens provided a perfect backdrop for our wedding photos, which we will treasure forever :) there was no one else around, so we didn't feel overlooked whilst the photos were being taken.

    We had such an enjoyable, stress-free day, and have to thank the Old swan staff for putting in all the hard work behind the scenes

    Thank you so much!

    We were so incredibly happy and impressed with everything the Old Swan offered. From the initial inquiries to the numerous e-mails asking for information and asking questions over an entire year that we planned, down to the in-person meetings and final decisions. With us living in the US and planning our wedding in a different country, I never once questioned or felt worried about anything. Though I came up with any question under the sun, I was always answered in a timely and helpful fashion.

    When we met with you for the first time, just 4 months before the wedding, I knew I was in great hands. You had everything covered and were so accommodating to every question and request we had. Meeting Chris as well was great-- he was very thorough and it was so helpful to have someone like him in charge the day of the event.

    The food was incredible, the bar service phenomenal, the room itself (we loved the makeover) and the set up was absolutely amazing. I could not have imagined a more perfect day! There were even some last minute things (information to guests, setting up photos, etc.) that y'all handled impeccably. Thank you again, from both Jamie and me, for an amazing wedding day!

    Thank you

    My husband and I got married on March 24th at the Old Swan Hotel and we couldn’t have asked for anything better! The lead up to the wedding was greatly helped by our wedding co-ordinator Emily Aikman. Emily is incredibly knowledgeable, patient, kind and really takes the time to listen to what we wanted- from big to small details she made sure that everything was perfect, and the day truly was thanks to her big support. There have been many times where I would call Emily for advice and last-minute preparations and she would always take her time to give the best advice. It was such a pleasure to work with someone as passionate and caring as Emily and we are so grateful that we’ve had the opportunity to work with her.
    The in house DJ, Howard Barnett (recommended photographer by the Old Swan and of course by us too!) and Chris the master of ceremony were also incredible – I did a surprise flashmob for my husband and they all were part of the process to ensure it went smoothly. I highly recommend contacting the Old Swan for their DJ and photographer too- I wouldn’t have changed a thing! The staff on the day of the wedding were quick and professional with serving food and accommodating our guests. One more small thing I remember is the receptionist (I can’t remember her name but she had short black hair) and she was calming me down right before I was going to the altar and while I was waiting for the car to arrive at the lobby- I remember her as the last person I saw before I walked down the isle and I just remember thinking how lovely and how good she was to me!
