We truly had the best day
Hi Louise, I just wanted to email to say an absolutely huge thank you to you and everyone at Swancar. We truly had the best day and it was worth the wait. So many of our guests commented on how it’s the best venue they’ve ever been to (I have to agree!!). For anyone wondering why on earth we’d want to redo our wedding, I think these photos really speak for themselves - A perfect day and we can now enjoy photos where we can see everyone’s smiles Olivia and Marc x

Where do we start !
Dear Louise, We hope you are well! Here we are! We have arrived on the other side of the wedding, this time last week it was all go and we don’t know where on earth the time has gone! This time last week I had no idea of the long night that lay ahead of me (wide awake 🤣) Well… where do we even start. We needed a bit of time to think about what we wanted to say. I guess thank you is a good place to start. Thank you for everything you did for us, bringing our dream wedding together. It’s been a journey and we are so honoured that you were with us every step of the way. You’re patience, thoughtful, reassuring and considerate nature shone through, and you always helped put us at ease. We have received so many comments from people saying how well organised and how well the day flowed. We can take no credit for this. This is all down to you. We always looked forward to our meetings with you, thank you for the chats and thank you for going over and above to accommodate our ideas. Thank you for being a listening ear during band-gate 🤣 and for making sure our buttercream wasn’t in a puddle after our ‘crack-of-dawn’ cake delivery, which was a shock to all 🤣 It’s been a strange few years since we started our wedding planning journey back in 2019. Thank you for remaining so positive and empathetic while we navigated the uncertainty and fear that covid brought. You’re a wonderful person and we will never forget you. We feel so lucky we got to share this journey with you. Thank you. Love, Adam & Sarah

The Whole Planning Experience
Hey Tammy, Adam & I wanted to say the biggest thank you from the bottom of our hearts to you & to all the staff at Swancar! The whole planning experience from when we very first visited in January 2020 to the actual wedding day, has been absolutely faultless. When we visited we just knew Swancar was the once for us, we didn’t need to visit any other venue. We were 100% sold… & my god was it worth it. We have received countless compliments from our guests about how amazing Swancar was on our wedding day, from the location, the food, the staff to the efficiency of it all. It’s been such a relaxed planning journey & a huge part of that is down to you, Tammy! You gave us both so much confidence & we knew the day was going to go smoothly. You’re confidence and relaxed nature made us feel so at ease & whenever I saw your face on the wedding day, I felt calm. When you’ve never been married before or been a part of the behind the scenes of a wedding, you don’t know what to expect… but every question I have ever had, has been answered clearly and any doubt was reassured. Being able to get ready on the morning of the wedding, knowing that everything is happening behind to scenes & being able to fully relax, is the best feeling. Everything about the night before the wedding was stunning too, The Old Stables is such a beautiful touch & made the whole experience even more special. I could go on for ages, but ultimately me & Adam has the most unforgettable & incredible day ever & we owe a huge part of that to Swancar & yourself… So, a HUGE THANK YOU, again, from us & our families for making our day absolutely PERFECT. When you want to do it alllllll over again, you know it was amazing. All our love, Mr & Mrs Wilkie x
