Testimonials

  • We just wanted to say a big thank you to you and all the team at Swallows Nest Barn for making our wedding so special. The barn looked amazing and got lots of compliments, and neither Jon or I had to worry about a thing all day which is testament to how well you all ran the day.

    Thank you both for looking after us so well. Everybody raved about the food, drink and the cocktail hour. Especially big thanks to the caterers and bar team as well we couldn't have asked for better!

    Thanks again,
    Claire and Jon

  • We just wanted to say a massive thank you to the whole team at Swallows Nest Barn for making our wedding day so perfect. Everything went so smoothly and the guests were all hugely impressed. Credit to all the staff on the day but special thanks to Verity, Martina, Becky and Karen - you guys are awesome!!

    We couldn't have asked for a better day, and most definitely couldn't have done it without all your help. Thank you!

    Love,
    Mr & Mrs Perkins xx

  • Thank you so much for making our day perfect! From setting up, checking on us in the bridal suite, being accommodating behind the bar, clearing up spillages and making everything flow smoothly (even after speeches over running etc). Our guests couldn't compliment the venue, details, setting and staff enough.

    Thanks again,
    Hannah
