    Poem written for the Swan

    Thank you seems such a little thing to say, for giving us such a memorable day,
    so a poem I created especially for you,
    expressing appreciation for all that you do, 2014 Steve asked me to be his wife, to have and to hold for the rest of our life, finding a venue was the first job to be done, after visiting the Swan we knew it was the one, everything about it was meant to be, even the chance to have a garden ceremony, Charlotte the wedding planner is second to none, a definite heroine unsung, she takes everything in her stride, handling it with kindness and pride, her and her team are first rate, attention to detail totally great, so thank you again to an awesome team, for helping us achieve our wedding dream!

    Delightful setting

    We wanted to write to thank you and all your colleagues for all of your hard work on and before August 6th.
    We were blessed with a wonderful day weather wise, and every part of the ceremony ran smoothly. The Swan is a delightful setting made all the better by the fact that nothing seemed to be too much trouble.
    Thank you again for helping to create a truly memorable day for our family and friends.

    Every box ticked

    Ann and I would like to thank you again for all the hard work and commitment you and your staff put in to make the day run effortlessly. Your input and advice during the preparations was invaluable, and contributed immeasurably in ensuring the day ran to plan. We can honestly say without exception, the staff could not have done more to ensure it was a day to remember for Claire and Ben. The involvement of the Swan team ensured that every box was ticked. The duty manager (Ian I think) was also influential in ensuring the day’s proceedings went smoothly, so please pass on our thanks to him.
    Special thanks should go to the kitchen staff, often the unsung heroes on these occasions. To deliver the food to such an exacting standard, when timings are constantly changing during the day must be a management nightmare in itself. The canapés were delicious, wedding meal beautifully prepared, presented, and served, and the hog roast excellent. Please pass our thanks on to all staff involved with the food preparation. The waiting staff were excellent throughout the day, and we would like to send special thanks to the waiter who attended the top table.
    Although Claire was concerned on the day that the ceremony would not take place in the garden, both Claire and Ben came to the conclusion that the indoor ceremony did not harm the day in any way. On reflection, they thought it was a more personal ceremony away from the background noise.
    I would not hesitate to use the Swan again.
