Fairy Tale
Hello Elisha. I just wanted to say a massive thank you for Saturday our day couldn’t have gone any smoother, everything was to such a high standard and we were overwhelmed by how well everything went and how much care went into everything. Thank you so much from the bottom of mine and Jamie’s hearts for making our fairy tale dreams come true.

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
