The Venue

With its glamorous style, luxurious feel and stunning reception rooms, Swynford Manor is a setting like no other. But it’s not just the décor that Rachel loves about it.

“I would choose Swynford Manor as the perfect wedding venue because I love how secluded and private it is. It really does feel as though you and your guests are hidden away from the whole world. The Garden Room is an amazing place to celebrate, full of natural light and with gorgeous views of the grounds, while there is plenty of outdoor space that’s ideal for reception drinks and enjoying the fresh air.”

The Theme

Swynford Manor already comes with a glam black and white style throughout, but Rachel would add a few bursts of brightness and a boho theme to complement the décor and put a personal touch on her day.

“I love the romantic feel at Swynford Manor but I would also add some colour and lots of fresh flowers for that boho look. My ideal wedding would be in summer to make use of the beautiful pagoda in the gardens and so I could spend plenty of time with my loved ones outdoors.”

The Colour Scheme

“I think that subtle pastel colours would work wonderfully with the black and white interiors. Flower walls and floral displays would enhance the feeling of romance while simple decorations would let the décor be the star of the show. I’d love a flower arch too for those amazing photos and confetti shots!”

The Look

Rachel’s look would be a beautiful blend of boho and romance, matching the grandeur of the venue and her chosen style.

“I would definitely have a floor length dress which would look amazing when I’m sweeping across the chequerboard dance floor! It would be white, flowing and just have a few simple details to it. For the boho touch, I’d wear flowers in my hair and a bouquet that would match the pastel colour scheme.”

In Rachel’s perfect wedding, the groom and groomsmen would look dapper in all black three-piece suits, with splashes of colour coming from the accessories. The bridesmaids would be in matching colours but would have different styles of dresses to suit their personalities.

Food and Drink

After the ceremony, the wedding breakfast is often the star of the show on your big day, and Rachel would want to ensure that all her guests could relax and enjoy a laid-back meal.

“I would go for a traditional three-course meal but keep things simple so it felt like a big family dinner. Prosecco stations and beer drums would mean everyone could help themselves and keep the drinks flowing! I’ve always loved the idea of cupcakes instead of a traditional cake, so these would definitely feature at my wedding.”

The Entertainment

There is plenty of space to entertain at Swynford Manor and Rachel has some great plans to wow her guests and make her reception truly memorable.

“I’d start with acoustic music in the garden during the drinks reception before unveiling a quirky photobooth in the evening to capture all the fun. A live band would be a perfect way to get everybody dancing and I would love to end the night with a silent disco for something a little different! After all that dancing, spending the night in the luxurious bedrooms and soaking those copper baths would be a real treat!”
