English Country Wedding at Swarling Manor

Swarling Manor Wedding Venue

Stacey and Tom married on the HOTTEST day of the year in the history of time I think!! It was a sweaty one- especially with the boys in their tweed suits to fit in with the English Country theme they had planned for over a year! haha But it was an outdoor ceremony at Swarling Manor in Kent and it really couldn't have been more perfect.

It's the first time I have visited Swarling Manor and it's a stunning farm venue with a gorgeous manor house and cottages, and a ridiculous amount of land and gorgeous gardens to explore. I absolutely loved it! There's so much space and I loved what Stacey and Tom did with it.

Stacey got ready at home and it was a very relaxed morning, despite the VW camper breaking down on the way there! Fortunately they had a replacement one at the ready and Stacey was cool as cucumber about it!

I absolutely loved the wild flowers Stacey chose for her bouquet and detailing. They were a mixture of deep reds, pinks and lilacs and were the perfect addition to the English Country theme they had going on.

The dress was just stunning and Stacey's amazing figure really pulled off the light, slinky fit she went for. Her deep red hair and matching lipstick really finished off her look and she looked truly breath taking! Tom is definitely a very lucky husband!

The outdoor ceremony was beautiful and they even read their own personal vows to each other which I always love! They exchanged roses as a sign of their love which the help of the cute page boy and flower girl.

Afterwards, everyone retired to the gardens where they had set up games and hay bales for people to sit on and enjoy the sunshine. drinks were flowing, canapés enjoyed and the band were rocking it. I was loving the summer farm vibes!

Stacey and Tom are clearly into their cars and trucks because not only did they have the VW camper for the bridesmaids to travel to Swarling Manor in style, they also had an incredibly beautiful convertible vintage Bentley for her and her Dad to arrive in. But Stacey's Dad- Steve also had a surprise up his sleeve for them. After the ceremony when they thought they were going for a drive in their vintage car, there was a gigantic American truck waiting for them! haha I have never seen anything like it, the size of it was unbelievable! It was a picture to see Stacey's face. She absolutely loved it. She is a bit of a self-confessed truck girl and has always had a huge interest in them so this really was the best surprise for them both. They went for a ride in the truck which was nice for them to have some downtime alone together, which can be a rarity on a wedding day!

The marquee was set up beautifully for their afternoon tea. They continued the English country theme with bunting, lots of gorgeous wild flowers, and vintage tea sets. Also, how beautiful is the cake?!

We saved the couple portraits for after dinner so that it was cooler for Stacey and Tom and the light was softer and prettier. It was 100% worth it. The light was perfect by this time, the temperature had dropped and there was a storm brewing! We went for a walk around the grounds and it was so chilled and really enjoyable. I absolutely LOVED working with Stacey and Tom- they are such a laugh and were super relaxed all day- which I think you can see from the photos. They were having the best time and we absolutely loved capturing it for them.

As we headed back to the wedding party, the skies fell down just as people were enjoying the garden games and everyone made a dash for cover!

The evening party kicked off with the first dance and everyone got involved and joined the dance floor! I saw some awesome moves before I left them to enjoy the rest of the night!

Thanks as always to my assistant Nicola Drummond on this beautiful wedding.
