Our latest love note from a wedding couple sounds like this...
Swallowfield Vineyards is a stunning venue and we fell in love with it the very first time we saw it. It was perfect for our wedding celebration. There were so many gorgeous, picturesque spots for some amazing and original photos. The owner Phillip is passionate, kind and generous with his help and time, which helped make our event even more enjoyable. Danielle (in-house Stylist from Wild Heart Events) was also an amazing support and I cannot recommend this venue highly enough! The costs were the most reasonable we found when searching for a venue, and it was the most gorgeous of all the venues we looked at. Our whole day was relaxed and fun and our guests were full of compliments about Swallowfield. We would most definitely hold another function here!
