Kind words received from some of our previous couples who have married at Swanton Morley House & Gardens:
Charlotte and Dylan – August 2023
Thank you so so much for helping to make our day so special, it means a lot to us. We enjoyed every minute. Your venue is incredible and we are so happy we chose you. Thank you for helping every step of the way and answering all our questions, we are so grateful.
Libby and Dan – July 2023
Thank you so so much for all your work towards helping make our day so special. Your venue is absolutely beautiful and we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect backdrop to such an important day.
Thank you for all your support and help in every stage from the planning and prep, to the actual day.
You have been so generous with your time and advice and we all loved meeting you and enjoying your beautiful gardens.
Caroline and Colin – June 2023
We’re both so happy with how the wedding went, and really couldn’t have imagined having it anywhere else. You were a fundamental part of the day and making it such a success, and we’ll be forever grateful to you and your family for everything you’ve done for us.
Mother of the Bride:
The whole day was perfect and this was mostly down to you! We were so impressed with and grateful for, your organisational skills and kind and so helpful manner. You were very discreet throughout the day but we knew you were there when we needed anything – before the day as well! What you offer is exactly what C&C wanted, a beautiful and stunning house and gardens, minimum fuss and a day that of course, we’ll always remember!
K&J – June 2023
We had a truly perfect wedding and can’t thank you enough for everything you done! Everything was exactly how we imagined it to be.
Phoebe and James – September 2022
We had the wedding we dreamt of – it was literally the perfect day! We truly can’t thank Caroline enough for all of the months of detailed work, support, and care that she put in to make it so wonderful. Our guests haven’t stopped raving about Caroline’s stunning floristry it was so beautifully designed, and so many of the flowers were grown in the gardens themselves! Having locally grown garden flowers made the day even more special. Caroline’s attentive care and eye for detail was utterly indispensable throughout, from our first viewing of the venue, through to her excellent recommendations for local suppliers, and to the non-stop efforts she, Mark and Abi put into our wedding not only on the day, but for so many days before it. They were more than just helpful and they did so much to bring the vision we had of our dream day to life.
We had our hearts set on an outdoor ceremony in the gardens, but the weather forecasts were predicting everything from sunshine to storms for the hours we needed on the day. However, Caroline stayed calm and confident all the way through, willing to wait as long as possible for us to decide – and without her kind support, our day simply wouldn’t have been the same. The gardens are even more gorgeous than the photos can capture, Caroline’s floristry is genuinely wonderful, and the courtyard is the perfect setting for you to create your ideal wedding breakfast just the way you would like it – but more than all this, what we couldn’t have realised when we booked to get married here was just how brilliant and invaluable a team we were getting to join us to make our dreams come true.
To anyone liking the look of the photos and these reviews, we’d really recommend booking a viewing to actually see the gardens and meet Caroline yourself. We knew it was the right place for us as soon as we did – though nothing could have prepared us for just how right!
Caroline, Mark, Abi – thank you so much for making our day so perfect!
Zoe and Keshav – August 2022
Thank you so much for helping us plan, organise and generally figure out everything for our wedding. We don’t know what we would have done without you. You helped us make it the most perfect day we could have imagined. The flowers were absolutely incredible! We have had so many compliments on them!
D&L – July 2022
Our wedding day was perfect, everything we have imagined and more! And I can’t thank you enough for all your help, we are so grateful.
Alison and Rob – June 2022
Thank you for letting us host our wedding at your beautiful home and venue! For us, the day couldn’t have been any more perfect. We just loved every minute of it. Thank you for making everything run so smoothly, it was such a joy working with you. Your flowers as well completely exceeded our expectations, they were just stunning and we’ve had so many compliments on them!
K&R – June 2022
Thank you so much for allowing us to use your venue and all your support (and from your family) in helping us to have an incredible wedding and fantastic day. Everyone commented on what a beautiful venue Swanton Morley is.
Lucy and Kieran – April 2022
After 4 years of planning and 2 years worth of postponements due to Covid, we finally were able to celebrate our wedding day here this weekend!
I don’t think we can possibly think of enough words to thank Caroline, for all of her patience and hard work leading up to, and including the day. Nothing was too much trouble for either Caroline or Mark. The venue is absolutely breath-taking and although we decided to decorate heavily with florals, the venue is stunning even empty, and the grounds are beautifully maintained and cared for, it was our photographer and videographers dream venue with multiple places to shoot! We also loved that the venue was intimate and that there hadn’t been hundreds of people married there before, making it feel very exclusive and more special.
We can’t recommend the venue enough, the whole process from start to finish, was a dream come true. Thankyou so much Caroline and Mark.
Natalie and Ryan – September 2021
Our wedding at Swanton Morley house and gardens was absolutely perfect, and a large part of that is owed to Caroline and Mark and their stunning venue. From the moment we set eyes on this venue we knew it was the one for us. Not only is it stunning but Caroline made us feel very welcome and at ease. Our guests were so complimentary of the venue, saying how stunning it was and lovely to have all the different areas and touches – perfect for gorgeous photos no matter the weather! We were able to set up the day before our big day and nothing was too much of an ask. On the day Caroline and Mark didn’t stop doing everything to help our day run without a hitch, and it showed. Everything was perfect. A massive thank you from us! And to anyone thinking of booking here, do it you won’t be disappointed!
Sam and Yasemin – August 2021
I don’t even know where to start in order to say how happy we were to get married at SMH&G! When we first visited we fell in love with the venue and Caroline made us feel so welcome. We originally booked for 2020 but covid threw a spanner in the words, however Caroline was absolutely amazing in helping us navigate postponements and was so kind towards us in an emotional time!
Caroline is so helpful, organised and goes above and beyond! The venue itself is stunning and is an absolute gem in the heart of Norfolk that has something for everyone. We loved everything about our wedding at SMH&G and can’t thank Caroline and her lovely family enough for all the help they gave us in not only the run up to the wedding but the day of and the day after. A truly special place and an experience we’ll never forget for all the right reasons!
John and Michelle – August 2021
We cannot quite express how thankful we are that we chose Swanton Morley House as our wedding venue. It was beyond anything we could have hoped for. Caroline and her family are so lovely and made all aspects of the before, during and after of wedding planning an absolute pleasure. We were blown away by the beautiful gardens where we were lucky enough to have our ceremony, and the courtyard and rooms provided the perfect setting for wedding breakfast and celebrations into the evening.
Caroline also provided our flowers which were stunning and exactly what we had hoped for. We had the best day and would not have wanted it anywhere else.
Thank you for the happy memories of our day.
Ant and Hollie – July 2021
We got married at Swanton Morley House and can not thank Caroline and her husband enough for helping us have the most amazing day. The venue and the grounds are stunning and an amazing place to have your wedding day. They let us plan the day we wanted and personalise the venue to truly make it unique to us and reflect us as a couple. They made sure everything ran seamlessly and I can not recommend them enough.
Alex and Jay – June 2021
We just wanted to say a huge thank you for everything you have done for us during this whole process, you have been incredible. We had such kind words about the venue from our guests, they all loved it. Thank you so much for helping us create the perfect day which we will never forget.
Chris and Emma – December 2020
We cannot thank you enough for holding our special day – it was more beautiful than we ever imagined and we are beyond grateful for all you did to make it so memorable. You set up the most perfect setting for us and every detail was just beyond stunning and everything I could have dreamed of and more.
Graham and Theresa – July 2020
We honestly can’t thank you enough. We both feel the day was perfect and it would not have been possible without your hard work and patience. Cannot recommend enough.
Luke & Sarah – September 2019
The most wonderful, pristine venue and gardens you’ll find in Norfolk. As soon as we visited Swanton Morley House we knew it was the venue for us. Caroline was supportive and helpful throughout the planning process, offering advice whenever we asked for it. She made sure the big day ran perfectly and we can’t thank her enough for that. Photographs simply don’t do the place justice!
Stephen and Hayley – August 2019
We got married at Swanton Morley House and Gardens in August 2019 and from the moment we arrived at the viewing, we knew it was the place we wanted to get married. Lots of our guests commented on the stunning grounds and beautiful ceremony room. Both in the lead up and on the day, Caroline was amazing and her lovely family were so supportive in helping us to set up the day before. We had the most incredible wedding day and would highly recommend this venue to anybody who is looking for the perfect place to get married.
Shaun & Anna – August 2019
My wife and I got married at Swanton Morley House in August 2019. This was such an amazing venue, we visited and fell automatically in love with the place we didn’t even view any other venue! Caroline was amazing, she was so detailed in every part of the day, even those little details you would not think of and took the stress of it all away! Absolute stunning gardens for photos and our ceremony, the dining area was just as special, a perfect size for a personal touch to the speeches and the evening. We are forever grateful for your hard work and for sharing your venue with us on our special day. Love Shaun and Anna x
Winnie & Leo – June 2019

This venue is perfect and offers endless opportunities to put your own stamp on your special day. Thank you.
We attended a friends wedding yesterday. We work with in the wedding industry and come across lots of venues. We was blown away by this particular venue!! The venue is set out perfectly. Everything you will need for your wedding all in one venue. The court yard in the centre with a marquee roof was beautiful. Gardens to die for. So many beautiful spots to have wedding photos. A beautiful wedding venue. The venue was spotless and could not fault a thing.
