We understand that arranging a wedding involves making lots of decisions. We are happy to provisionally book a date for you with no obligation or deposit required whilst you are deciding exactly how you would like your big day to be.
If you choose Swinton Park to be the venue for your wedding we will confirm your booking by taking a non-refundable deposit of £2000 for a two day exclusive use or £1000 for all other bookings and entering into a booking agreement, which includes provision for a cancellation charge.
The time that follows we will spend helping you with all of your arrangements. We aim to have all details confirmed at least two weeks prior to the day. We will require payment of 75% of the anticipated costs of the event to be paid six weeks prior to the wedding and the remaining 25% two weeks prior to the big day. Any additional charges incurred on the wedding day will then be settled at reception on departure.
