We were very nervous of having a big wedding that felt like it was 'off the shelf' but also didn't have a massive budget to spend....
As a result we feel hugely lucky to have found Swallows Oast - it was exactly the kind of beautiful, laid back approach that we were looking for. The food was extraordinary, the organisation beforehand was clear without being overbearing and there were a thousand little touches throughout the day and the morning after that were really classy and made the day really special.
(Also, Swallow's Oast is the barn, but also there's a glade on the site surrounded by birch trees that is a magical place for a reception. As a result it also felt a bit like having two venues in one)
Mark, Russell and the team are superb. We felt in such safe hands, and free to enjoy the day as a result.
